    Re: 13.04 Just a few remarks about the taskbar

    By "bloated" I don't mean the memory footprint. I couldn't care less about that. I mean the sheer mount of features that too few people use. It's so clouded with features that it's hard to find what...
  2. [ubuntu] Re: 13.04 Are the software center and updater ever done?

    @NikiNfOuR
    Well, the more Ubuntu is meant for noobs as well, the more Canonical needs to seriously think about (and TEST) usability. People who are used to using their iPad or whatever, will sit and...

    13.04 Just a few remarks about the taskbar

    Okay so the taskbar is horrible as ever (meaning since it's been changed for the worse, it hasn't become better at all).

    1) You can't move it to the bottom of the screen, or anywhere else.
    2)...
  4. [ubuntu] 13.04 Are the software center and updater ever done?

    Yeah it's a weird question, but the icons are very much iOS-like with a progressbar on top of them.

    It looks like they are constantly doing something in the background. Is it weird of me to see it...

    [ubuntu] Re: Ubuntu Server 13.04 - What's actually new?

    I wonder why such important things are not listed. A new kernel is something that is absolutely the singlemost important thing to many (hardcore? may I say that?) sysadmins. And all that it appears...

    [ubuntu] Ubuntu Server 13.04 - What's actually new?

    On the overview page of Server 13.04 on the homepage, it's a lot of blabla about clouds and this and that. But is there anything actually NEW in this release when not using the cloud? Many people I...

    [ubuntu] Re: jabberd2 starts before mysql does

    Not to be rude, but in my point of view I don't see why on earth I would start jabberd2 (or any daemon) manually after each and every reboot. So yes, it is started automatically (or tries to anyway...

    [ubuntu] Re: Locking down /var/www properly

    Okay, OP here :)

    Fact of the matter is, my websites really do need general write access *in the websites* and not anywhere else. Which is working perfectly fine. No problems there.

    [ubuntu] Locking down /var/www properly

    It seems to me that there are as many ways to do this as there are sysadmins out there. This is what I came up with.

    Security of /var/www is left as-is.

    I forgot to say that 10.04 works perfectly fine. So it can't be the hardware or its configuration. Besides, there's not much to tweak about virtual hardware. Also, where is the md5sum? I can't find...
