"Virtually all Linux word processor reviews and articles operate from the premise that Microsoft Word is the benchmark to measure Linux word processors by, and that the most important feature is compatibility with MS Word documents. I couldn't disagree more. Why hold ourselves to such a low standard? MS Word is buggy, lardy, malware-friendly and incompatible on purpose. It's not even compatible with previous versions of itself. To me it's a cruel, expensive joke, not a professional tool."

I don't usually use a word processor (why should I when there's Vim and HTML?), but Kword is my preferred tool when I need to.

*sigh*

Have you EVER tried to participate in a collaborative document with real world (ie, non-geeky) people? Good luck sending an html file. And please don't tell me that people that use MS word can import html, they just won't open the friggin thing unless it has a little blue icon on the left with a poorly rendered "W" on it.
I would *love* (note the stress on the word "love") to be able to do as you just said, roll my own and type everything in plain txt or tex or html. Sadly, I have to interact with my fellow homo sapiens, so most of the time I can't do it.
A couple of days ago for instance, I sent a report that was part of a greater report (so it had to be editable), and I arbitrarily sent it in xml format (open document). Five minutes later, I got a mail saying "only .doc please, Word won't open it. Are you using Vista?". Jees.
Six months ago, the same thing. I was working with my boss in a paper and I sent her a .txt file with the text, along with a nice formatted .pdf (so that she would knew how it could look). She never even considered opened the .txt file, and tried to select, copy and paste the pdf content in MS word, with really poor results. Bottom line: had to send her a .doc file.
The other day I gave a little rant at work about this, and everyone looked at me as if I was crazy (xml? what's that?).

I work on collaborative projects with friends (and not-so-friends) at school quite often. Generally, we use Google Docs so that we can edit the same document in real-time together, with chat available.

I use HTML for writing my own personal papers (both at school and at home).

EDIT: Actually, since most online word processors just use HTML anyway, I could easily import my documents into Google Docs or Zoho. However, the live chat while working is too useful for me to do that often.

That's nice, but for some people Google Docs is just as alien as learning that documents of different formats can be opened from within an application (as opposed of just double clicking the thing and waiting for something to happen). And you *can't* do it any other way than theirs, they are too worried with real world issues are not in the mood for anything new.

Sorry for the off-topicness...

Sorry for having you (or anyone else) think that. I didn't mean to divert this very nice thread. It was just some random ranting. This document format thing gets in my nerves.

I thought the mods are thinking this is a spam thread... Because I've been seeing the "read first the rules before posting" (you know, the green banner(?)) when I open it.

Thanks again. And post links too if you want. And comments... to make the thread lively. :)

And do you really think Mac OS and Linux will be any safer if they gain enough market share to become relevant and get the full attention of hackers?

What, don't you?
Well, i guess if Fire fox in Ubuntu was (like Internet explorer) a direct link to for Vira to go into the root files i, you're right. but it doesn't seem that way


I use Mac OS X occasionally and have dabbled in Linux, and I've found nothing that makes me want to switch to either. Even if I liked Macs, which I don't for mostly subjective reasons, there's got to be a good reason they have such a pathetic presence in the enterprise.

I think some one forgot where Mr Gates got "his" fantastic Idea for windows from...

Also:
Other Vista components available for XP include Media Center, Internet Explorer 7, Media Player 11 and Windows Defender.

oh yeah, windows defender that fantastic application that blocks all kinds of connections, and prevent me from ruling over my computer. absolutely genius... (not)

This sounds like most people from my class.. but almost makes me laugh, some people has some idea about; the more expensive the better.

And for the Vista part:


Why is Vista the best operating system? The interface is a good place to start. Vista has a straightforward elegance, featuring transparent windows that niftily whoosh into and out of place when you minimize or maximize themoh really??? i always dreamed about that!!... no wait, i forgot its real and its called compiz-fusion, and it has a lot more to it than just one damn effect!


Don't like the way Vista looks or works? No problem; change it. From the transparency of windows down to almost every level of the operating system, there's a way to customize it. And there's plenty of free and cheap software for further tweaking. "sigh" Yeah, but its still pretty much the same, Vista will prevent you from customizing the way it should operate, there's a lot of things thats totally "#$%. for an example, on my computer, i have the user with the most rights. But I'm i the Administrator?? ohh no.... also, from a guest user It's Actually possible to make yourself administrator, does that suck or what?


Do you need to run enterprise software at work? Don't try it with Mac OS X or Linux -- most likely they won't work. How about games? Again, Windows rules. There simply aren't nearly as many games that run on the Mac or Linux. The same holds true for many other kinds of software.
just, lets not forget the great great instability of windows. If all games were made for Linux, It would be way to play, no interruptions in the middle of a game because you get some message about the program suddenly stopped working, or your graphic driver screwed your computer.


With its built-in firewall, antispyware and antiphishing features, Windows Vista is far safer than XP. Making it even more secure are its under-the-hood features such as Window Service Hardening, which stops malicious activity from taking place in the file system, the Registry and the network to which the PC is attached. Similarly, Network Access Protection (NAP) stops an infected computer from making a connection to a network, ensuring that it can't infect other PCs.

again, I'm sorry, i haven't EVER experienced a system which went down with more ease than vista because of malware, or just the some virus it cought while it was just updating or something...


As for Linux, if you're a fan, feel free to fly your uber-geek badge every time you boot up -- but don't expect to run your company's enterprise software, much less mainstream software and games. And do expect to become very familiar with the confusing vagaries of the specific version of Linux you've installed.
I'd say, if you're willing to work a bit for it you can make everything run, and if your enterprise software is not made for Linux, I'm sorry, its just not the best then.





If you want a safe, modern operating system that will run the software you want on reasonably priced hardware without requiring an advanced degree in geekology, Windows Vista is the only way to go.

nah, im fine with my Safe, Modern operating system that runs the software i want on reasonably priced hardware without requiring an advanced degree in geekology, called linux :D thank you

(i didn't say anything about MAC because i don't know much about it. even though, i do know that its better than windows, a lot of my friends has it, but what isn't?)

BTW, if you want to read good articles about Linux, Windows and MAC or other software i suggest you go to
wikipedia the free encyclopedia (http://wikipedia) Because its fairly neutral articles you find in there written and directed, mostly by people who know something about it.

you will find a lot of articles which are worth to read.

BTW thanks for the OS Smackdown: Linux vs. Mac OS X vs. Vista vs. XP (Pcworld link (http://www.pcworld.com/businesscenter/article/147262/os_smackdown_linux_vs_mac_os_x_vs_vista_vs_xp.html )

it was great fun :D hope you all enjoy Linux!

As for Linux, I've been hearing it's "ready for the desktop" for years now. Well, it's not ready. It's getting better (market share doubled recently -- to almost 1%) but there are too many distros, packages, ISOs, GNUs, Gnomes, awks, GREPs, flavors, kernels, KDEs, licenses and modules.

Ungh, I wish you hadn't linked half of those. They propagate the misguided advice that using noatime somehow speeds up the system. Nevermind that Ubuntu, as far back as I have checked, mounts partitions relatime. Noatime = don't modify access time at all. Relatime = modify access time only when the file is modified. IE, if we're already touching the filesystem to change the file and we're touching the inode to change the modify time then, and only then, modify the access time.

Anyone who believes they can detect any speedup from noatime over relatime is suffering placebo effect, plain and simple. The heads are already at that sector, the write is measured in ns. It is imperceptible. Furthermore noatime can cause problems with applications which utilize atime for locking. IE, it is hazardous! Relatime does not suffer from a similar problem.

What makes this so frustrating is that some of those blogs even tell you to replace relatime with noatime so it is clear that they're aware it isn't noatime but obviously have no clue what they are replacing. Quite frankly if it is that obvious they're clueless on something like this I would not trust the advice they're regurgitating.

Thanks for the comment. Comments like this help disperse proper information. :)

Honestly, I applied almost ALL of them, including noatime and nodiratime. Also, I have relatime and noatime and nodiratime enabled at the same time.

Currently, I am experiencing no problems. Thanks for the comment; now I know what to do.

Having been a PC World member myself, and personally being temporarily suspended on grounds of Linux zeal (and using screenshots of Black Screens of Death as links to an .ISO download of Ubuntu Linux) at the moment, I think their leadership and main editors are great. However, their other users (with weird usernames) either are zealots of Mac OS X or Windows, but nothing open source. I did, however, see one thread where about 10 Linux users did come in - but nowhere else - and they still get good reputations. I think PC World Forums needs your help.

Pardon? please clarify.

What I am really doing here is posting links that, I think, will interest people. Sorry if the thread title is misleading.

I too have a PC World subscription, but I have not read almost all of them recently (due to the lack of a decent internet connection). So I am just posting some "outdated" (basically, old) links for others to browse through. Of course, you are free to add your own. :)

Of course, this thread is not only limited to PC World links, but also to other (interesting) web sites (no prawn, please).

Due to "trademark infringement" to MS, Lindows was renamed Freespire, then Linspire. Currently, AFAIK, Linspire is owned by Xandros, and is "proprietary" (in the sense that you have to pay for it before you can install it, just like Windows).

I did made your day, right? :)

There is also Zero Install (is that the name) available for Linux now, right? It enables applications to be installed without root privileges.

Erm, that's always possible, install it in your home directory. *shrug*

That the article misses, and why root is so important, is because while one can infect a single user's directory through such a method the entire machine is not compromised. Another account on the same machine can easily clean up the mess. Generally in Windows this is not true.

Thanks for that *shrug*. :) Completely missed that point.

AFAIT, the article raises the security vulnerability posed by launchers. Anyway, the reasoning that "Another machine can clean up your mess" is, I think, not that attractive an option.

My professor in operating systems said that desktop operating systems can only attain C2 status in the orange book (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trusted_Computer_System_Evaluation_Criteria#Divisi ons_and_classes). Because anything higher than that would cause user headaches, since everything would require mandatory protection.

And come to think of it: MS is happy that its Windows Vista and later are now at C2 level, the level long before enjoyed by *nix systems like Linux and BSD.

I didn't say another machine. I said another user on that machine.

If my account, Greyed, is compromised, my wife's account is not, root is not and most importantly the shared executables on the machine are not. With a simple user change on the same machine and my account can be cleaned up in relatively short order. I should know, I've had users on my machines have their accounts compromised. All I did was disable their account, clean up the mess, reset their password to something a tad harder to crack and that was the end of it.

Windows, on the other hand, still has problems with the admin account and the machine as a whole being compromised. At that point you cannot simply switch to another account on the machine to clean up the mess. You have to reboot to a rescue disc (which is most often based on Linux (http://greydmiyu.wordpress.com/2009/06/07/another-point-for-open-source/), go fig) or move the HD to a non-infected machine and try to clean it up from outside the system. The latter is not really an option as more people turn to hardware and software raid(-like) features (striping) to gain HD performance. I've had to deal with several Windows infections in my lifetime. Not pretty in the slightest.

But then, it is till the same, right? (Of course, machine!=user on that machine, but then, when substituted, the statement still becomes true).

Top 10 Linux Distributions for 2010 (http://www.compukoko.com/2010/07/21/top-10-linux-distributions-for-2010/)

Top 10 Linux Distributions for 2010 (http://www.compukoko.com/2010/07/21/top-10-linux-distributions-for-2010/)

Note: "Best Distro" recommended for different user segments.

Thanks for the link. I tried reading it (as in thoroughly), but my head started to hurt because of the grammar and the typos.

And I would also like to point out some things:
1. Fedora: best for experts?
I beg to differ. I think Gentoo gets the upper hand here. And Arch. But not Fedora.

2. Ubuntu: antidote for everything?
I think not. But then, the author does make a point with regards to reducing the number of candidate distros out there, but besides Ubuntu, I think Linux Mint and Crunchbang Linux would be a more "better" antidote than Ubuntu. And, oh yeah, there is Puppy Linux too and Mepis.

3. PCLinuxOS: the best disto for windows migrants?
This also is a good point, but I would rather recommend Linux Mint for Windows migrants. And maybe DSL too.

4. Puppy Linux: best for old hardware?
Yeah, Puppy Linux is great, but IMHO is NOT the best for older hardware. For one thing, there is DSL, and also Tiny Core Linux. But then, I think the priority here is "User Friendliness", which is a VERY subjective topic, so the choice of Puppy Linux.

5. Linux Mint: the best desktop distribution?
Hmmnnn... seems like contradicting statement #1. But then, a desktop for beginners is not necessarily the best distro for the desktop. But then, as I have already said, this is a VERY subjective issue. For example, Arch Linux is the best distro for me now because it lets me configure all things the way I want.

6. UNR: the best netbook distribution?
I don't really have too much to say in here, because I for one don't have a netbook. But I think there are more better choices than UNR, such as Meego (as the article recommends also) and maybe other lightweight distros such as DSL.

7. Debian: the best distro for sysadmins?
I think many would like to differ here. For one, many would say Slackware. And RHEL would also be a viable option, aside from SuSe Linux.

8. OpenSuSe: best for the desktop?
Hmmnnn... same as #3. I wonder which really is the best.

9. CentOS: best server distribution?
CentOS is really good for the server, but I think more seasoned sysadmins would say Slackware does the job better than CentOS or RHEL. But then, these distros are really good for servers, no doubt about that.

10. Ubuntu Studio: best distribution for multimedia?
I think there are much more better alternatives than Ubuntu Studio. dyne:bolic is one such distro.


Disregarding grammatical mistakes and some typographical errors, I think this article is a great read for beginners and for people looking for which distro is to install. But I do advise them to read more articles and not just to rely in this one.

6. UNR: the best netbook distribution?
I don't really have too much to say in here, because I for one don't have a netbook. But I think there are more better choices than UNR, such as Meego (as the article recommends also) and maybe other lightweight distros such as DSL.

Pretty much any distro designed for a Netbook is an automatic fail. Being designed for a netbook seems to mean "Let's create a crappy full-screen launcher and force all programs full screen upon launch." Which is dumb. Why?

My Mini 10v's resolution is 1024x600. Not to long ago the standard resolution most manufacturers shipped was 800x600. Did we have cutesy crappy full-screen launchers and forced-full screen programs? No. So why have that on a screen which is wider.

I know, I know, the Mini's screen is 10" and back in the days of 800x600 15" CRTs was the norm. They're compensating for the missing 5". But it really doesn't improve anything and causes some annoying side effects. Like Thunderbird's configuration screen being forced full screen. It also ignores other problems. Like the plethora of configuration screens for programs that have a minimum height of 650 pixels and no vertical scroll bar (Something in GNome in this case, I forget what). Kinda makes it hard to hit the "Apply" or "Ok" button at the bottom. ;)

The best netbook release is a stock release of something else. Mint or [K|L|X]Ubuntu.


7. Debian: the best distro for sysadmins?
I think many would like to differ here. For one, many would say Slackware. And RHEL would also be a viable option, aside from SuSe Linux.Them's fightin' words.

No thank you. I don't know how a closed source client became the leader of bit torrent software, but unless it suddenly decides to go full FOSS I'd like it off of our OS. The terrible thing is that people new to linux who haven't realized the wealth of free software out there would use it a lot more than free ones like transmission or ktorrent.</free software zealotry>

About the uTorrent issue, I checked their faq page and as of now they recommend the Windows binary running under wine. In short, no native Linux version yet (and no plans, according to their faq, of making it open source).

I think the reason why people want utorrent in Linux is because it is only a single, small binary, unlike Linux BitTorrent clients out there that are somewhat bigger and has dependencies. Please correct me here if I am wrong.

Nah, transmission comes preinstalled, no new dependencies to download.

That is a silly argument. That's like saying that just because IE comes with Windows it isn't bloated!

The fact of the matter is that transmission does have dependancies:
Depends: libappindicator0, libc6 (>= 2.11), libcanberra-gtk0 (>= 0.2), libcanberra0 (>= 0.2), libcurl3-gnutls (>= 7.16.2-1), libdbus-glib-1-2 (>= 0.78), libevent-1.4-2 (>= 1.4.13-stable), libgconf2-4 (>= 2.27.0), libglib2.0-0 (>= 2.23.5), libgtk2.0-0 (>= 2.16.0), liblaunchpad-integration1 (>= 0.1.17), libnotify1 (>= 0.4.5), libnotify1-gtk2.10, libpango1.0-0 (>= 1.14.0), libssl0.9.8 (>= 0.9.8k-1), zlib1g (>= 1:1.1.4), transmission-common (= 1.92-0ubuntu2)

The fact that it comes preinstalled doesn't change that. The fact it is preinstalled doesn't mean it is going to be used. I certainly don't use it though I do use the other one mentioned (ktorrent).

As for why someone would want uTorrent when transmission is available that is a no brainer. Go try uTorrent and compare its feature set to that of transmission. Transmission is a bare-bones, barely above-the-reference-bittorrent client. KTorrent is closer to uTorrent in features.

However as the other poster pointed out, uTorrent is far tighter than what we have currently. Back when I compared some torrent clients uTorrent in wine had not only the smallers footprint (including wine in the deal) but also the smallest CPU usage.

Granted, FOSS advocates might boggle at the idea of people wanting closed (albeit free-as-in-beer) source software on their machines. I don't. I fully understand that sometimes practicality trumps purity. Especially in matters of entertainment (games) or performance. This, clearly, is the latter.

Nice argument. That's why I dumped Ubuntu [and Windows] and shifted to Arch.



Come on, HURD shouldn't have made the list even at eight. Sure it's stalled, but we need developers to take initiative, not be scared away by such labels.
Those were all the ones that interested me, the hoaxes were just the usual social engineering, and the linux kernel that natively runs windows apps would also natively run windows viruses. Wine can be uninstalled if you're paranoid.

Then, why Stallman insists on calling Linux as GNU/Linux? Because personally, I find it awkward and ugly to call it as such.
