    Re: microsoft warns of open source threat

    This is absolutely incorrect. OpenOffice is the opened source from StarOffice. Executive Summary: Sun was faced with a huge licensing expense with Microsoft Office. There was a German company...

    Re: 5 reasons to avoid iPhone 3G

    I like the UI of the phone, but I hate AT&T as a provider. They are my current mobile provider and they have the absolute worst service evah! Not only was their initial rebate offer a joke, but...
  8. Re: Dell's (lack of?) marketing of Ubuntu computers

    I don't entirely disagree, but I think that the Linux market, even for the preinstalled OEM types, is still for early technology adopters. Many people aren't going to make a switch or be willing to...
  9. Re: Dell's (lack of?) marketing of Ubuntu computers

    I don't see that as negative at all. Yes it's not a gung-ho don't worry about it approach, but I think they are being very cautious and conservative.

    I'm not looking at this as an expert...
  10. Re: Best Buy selling Ubuntu linux for $20

    Ok I took you up on it and tried it. I checked the business and home sections. In the business section you get one disclaimer letting you know that the FreeDOS system isn't covered under MS volume...

    Re: Windows at its best

    This happens because SP2 is installed (which includes the support for DEP) and the CPU/Mobo combo doesn't support DEP. This usually happens in older systems. The answer here is to set DEP...

    Re: Study: Attacks on package managers

    Right. The malware wouldn't be installed via the package. An older "exploitable" package could be installed by the malicious repo and then that vulnerability exploited. It still seems like a...

    It's very possible that is true. It could be that people, and more likely project/business developers, would submit patches and modules that would reduce nvidia's development load. It's also...

    Poll: Re: Static vs dynamic linking of libraries

    Not having a network connection can be a big problem. When I first used Ubuntu I was on dial up and had a WinModem. It was a real deal breaker. On the up side it was the motivation for us to...

    Poll: Re: Are online petitions ever effective?

    I think petitions can be potentially effective if the company is open to the idea. Let's take the Dell example. Many people petitioned them for pre-installed Ubuntu. I think if the response was...

    Maybe it would be good if you explained monolithic vs. distributed and static vs. dynamic. I totally agree with your posts and a lot mixing is going on in this thread.

    Why isn't it right? Is RedHat immoral for selling it's OS software package? I don't think so. The wider the adoption the more people we are going to find who would rather pay to have someone do...

    Re: Best Buy selling Ubuntu linux for $20

    Thank you! This deal is really cool and a great step. It's a good deal and hopefully this will lead to a more enthusiastic approach to pre-installation than Dell has taken.

    It simply amazes me...

    Agreed. They also disabled auto-updater during that period too so you had to download it from their site. Too much hype in my opinion. It's a much better browser now than ever before. I don't see...
