  1. Re: How 'well' does Ubuntu work for most of you guys?

    I've had periods of many years using mostly Mac, then mostly Windows, and in recent years mostly Ubuntu. For the last year I've been using Ubuntu almost exclusively. With the clean simplicity of...
  2. Re: How much time do you dedicate to learning to code (or anything)?

    Malcolm Gladwell suggests the distance between noobie and master in any field is about 10,000 hours. In some areas it's okay to be merely competent, so just a few hundred hours may suffice. But to...

    Re: Create my own OS

    As entire OS is a lot of work. Perhaps you might start with one corner of it and see how that goes. A file manager would be relatively easy to do, and you could use high-level tools like Python,...

    Respectfully, I see nothing wrong in raising the bar with reasonable expectations. There's a place for WYSIWYG HTML editors, and the fact is that there isn't a single one in the Ubuntu Software...
  8. Re: Looking for members of a game changing Linux distro

    If you want a game changer, write apps. Any OS is ultimately just an app launcher; app define the scope of what we can do with an OS.

    There are many apps that are Win-only, and often a reason...

    Re: Is Canonical trying to do too much too soon?

    The original question here was stated as: "Is Canonical trying to do too much too soon?"

    Perhaps a more relevant question might be: "Are other OS vendors trying to do too little too late?"

  10. Re: Marks Shuttleworth's message to all Ubuntu haters.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yV_8bGUdCd0


    I think that's what they're aiming for. So far, I like it. Makes better use of screen real estate than any other OS I've seen.

    Re: Why Linux will never dominate the world!

    On the desktop, true, it's a Microsoft world. Has been for decades, and for all its wealth and power not even Apple has been able to get much beyond 10% there.

    But consider all the other types of...

    [ubuntu] Re: System76 needs a new product or two very soon

    We could rearrange that to show the relationship between those elements:

    small market = low sales volumes, limited choices, lack of innovation, high prices

    I think it would be very helpful to have a link titled "Support" in the main menu. I believe this would be more meaningful to a greater number of users than one labeled "Community". It would bring...

  18. Re: With 12.10 are we still stuck with the silly unity interface?

    I agree on all fronts; well said.

  20. Re: With 12.10 are we still stuck with the silly unity interface?

    No one was ever "stuck" with Unity. This is Linux: there are hundreds of distros to choose from, dozens of DEs, and more mods than I can count. Mix and match to have exactly what you want.
