    Re: 2012 - What OS do you use?

    Debian-stable or Slackware. KDE or Openbox depending on the age of they system.

    Less drama. Don't feel forced into distro-specifics for the sake of marketing. "New" is not always "improved".

    [SOLVED] Re: WYSIWYG with DHTML

    Well, in a very general sense you can work with dynamic html in pretty much anything. These days, unless you're using Dreamweaver or Kompozer, WYSIWYG editors don't really seem to exist anymore.

    Re: Steam is coming to Linux!

    Freedom of choice.

    But not if you CHOOSE to buy commercial software with a restrictive EULA?
