    Re: Why do you choose Ubuntu over Windows

    Try k3b. It's a DVD burner for KDE and has been pretty easy and feature complete as well as robust for a long time.

    Canonical doesn't always choose the best default apps.

  2. [ubuntu] Re: How can I create shell script to copy contents of a shared folder on a XP PC?

    Get that remote file system exported from the XP box mounted on your Ubuntu box first.

    Once you do that then it just becomes a generic Unix problem.

    It's not that hard but you can destroy the machine if you are not careful. Getting the main PC apart will probably not be hard but CPU fans can be tricky. Dealing with the fan mount on my C2Q system...

    The whole "package repository" thing is a godsend. It takes a lot of the guesswork and legwork out of getting a system completely installed. Instead of hunting for stuff you need and going to...

    Re: How many of you completely switched to Linux?

    Calling Windows easy is a crime against the English language.

    Ubuntu might be "different" but it isn't hard. Support for some random device might be a problem though. Although that's not an issue...

    Re: How many of you completely switched to Linux?

    I have friends and relatives that still run Windows. I still use it for work purposes. I got a copy of Win7 just to play with and become familiar with in case I need to bail out a family member.

    It may just be time to ditch XP. It's 2 versions back so that probably means that it will be de-supported soon. I initially tried to run iTunes with Win2K when I was first starting with this VM stuff...

    A Netflix player that supports a real media remote would also be a nice plus. The remotes on those Roku boxes is a crippled joke. It's much like an AppleTV remote.

    Re: Ubuntu cannot compete with OS X or Windows 7

    This was my impression as well. It's great if you want to do the few
    things that have already been preloaded and you want to do them in the
    manner that Apple wants you to. As soon as you start to...

    If you are interested in dumping the entire audio track to a file, then that's a pretty simple option. Beyond that and you probably want something
