    Re: I-magic OS $79: Is this a joke, or what?

    Some people attach a stigma to all things free and feel something can only be worthwhile if they pay for it.

    iMagicOS is out to part these people with their money.
  2. [ubuntu_mobile] Re: ubuntu create a flash USB boot from WIndows

    I actually installed Jaunty before subsequently downloading the netook interface from the repos.

    [ubuntu] Re: Acer Aspire One - Sound not working

    Sound works OOTB in Jaunty. Alternately, you could apply kernel 2.29 and ALSA 1.0.19 to your Intrepid install to get sound working.

    But it's simpler to just install Jaunty :)

    I have the 5200mAH battery (the 6-cell from the 8.9") that Jaunty seems to report as 4 hours and 45 minutes max. I know I can get more than 6 hours with Wifi on because, well, I've run it for over 6...
  7. Poll: Re: POLL: Do you want to have CTRL-ALT-BACKSPACE disabled in Jaunty?

    There was no uproar back then (here, at least) because it did not affect the majority of users. We were still all on Intrepid and older.

    This feels like change for the sake of change.

    Ah, well,...
  8. Poll: Re: POLL: Do you want to have CTRL-ALT-BACKSPACE disabled in Jaunty?

    Gawd, no wonder I couldn't Ctrl+Alt+Backspace. I was wondering if something was borked.

    Disabling it is plain silly. At most, they should just introduce a confirmation prompt, something along the...

    It's pretty reasonable. Mark Shuttleworth spoke on the same issue, but he took heart that at least people have the choice of trying Linux and then returning it if they don't feel it was right for...

    Re: I have found a funny troll blog

    People take the Internet too personally.

    Linux users, especially, are too easily riled up by what they perceive to be an attack on their OS.

    It's not a religion, it's not even a way of life.

    Re: Wubi: Ubuntu + Fedora

    Don't think that Fedora has a Windows-based installer.

    You can run the Live CD and/or install, but not a WUBI-like installation.

  15. Re: Which OS do you spend more time fixing? Windows or Ubuntu?

    Fixing? Neither, since I keep all my machines in good nick, don't download junk from the Internet, and run them like every cracker in the world was trying to screw me.

    Re: Why do you use more than one distro?

    I run two distributions in case an update breaks an installation while I need my computer for work. Therefore, I would just leave the repairs aside until I have time to go about fixing it.
