    Re: How many of you completely switched to Linux?

    I don't view completely switching as 'using Linux only, and never anything else.'

    Instead, I think if someone has installed Linux, and Linux alone, on a PC or laptop, they've switched completely....
  2. Re: Anyone speak Mandarin? Need a short translation please.

    Thanks a lot!

    I was guessing something about a dog, but the same website also suggested 'grain' and 'nautical mile'...so that threw me off :p

    Poll: Re: Which Desktop Environment?

    I'd say try them all. Trying just one, and not liking it, could end up causing you to become frustrated and not like Arch, rather than disliking the desktop environment.

    I'd also suggest trying...
  4. Anyone speak Mandarin? Need a short translation please.

    Hi,

    A friend kept passing me mandarin phrases which I was able to figure out pretty quickly (they were very short, and looking up the individual words to put it together wasn't too hard).

    But...

    Re: Mapping Software

    QGIS is pretty nice.

    Being so used to ArcGIS, I also find the uDig project to be very worth looking at: http://udig.refractions.net/

    It also has a link to JGrass, which uses the uDig framework...

    I name all of my computers and drives after places from Middle Earth :)

    Re: What Makes KDE So Great?

    Removing KDE 4.1 within 20 minutes wasn't an opinion - it was something I literally and actually did.

    My reasons for doing so, are however, opinions. And like you, I am entitled to them.

    Re: What Makes KDE So Great?

    You could 'read about KDE4 proper' all day long, and it wouldn't change the fact that I don't enjoy it and have little interest in using it.

    The OP wanted opinions on KDE - that includes those...

    Re: What Makes KDE So Great?

    I think it is a stretch to call KDE 4.x stable by any means.

    It's no where near a finished product in my opinion.

    I thought I'd post a little update, and especially since I think some credit to KDE has been deserved.

    While I could not stand the KDE desktop that is in the repos (4.1 currently), I managed to...

    Re: What Makes KDE So Great?

    Whether one prefers or enjoys a desktop environment shouldn't take very long to determine.

    Now granted, I'd say 20 minutes would be a bit short for some things, say Linux as an entire OS for...

    Re: What Makes KDE So Great?

    I installed kde 4.1 (via kubuntu-desktop) last evening, and wasn't very impressed.

    I removed it within 20 minutes, and now I'm stuck with the kubuntu loading screen :/

    Gnome and XFCE for me.

    Re: How do I 'sell' ubuntu to Mac zealots?

    Was purchasing the computer you're using now a choice for you?

    Was using a Linux-based OS a choice for you?

    Was installing Ubuntu, of the many distros available, a choice for you?

    Re: How do I 'sell' ubuntu to Mac zealots?

    +1.

    The whole point of Ubuntu/Linux/Open-source is freedom of choice.

    That philosophy still stands when someone else's choice differs from our own.
