    Re: Feisty - Wil you upgrade right away?

    I'll install it within a couple of days of the final release; my current edgy install is fracked up, but I don't have the time to fix it now, when I know I'm going to want to upgrade anyway.
  4. Re: December 2006 Desktop Thread (Safe for Work content only)

    Just reinstalled with Edgy this week, and it's finals season, so haven't had time to do too much customization, but I'm happy with it for now.

    Intellimouse Explorer 3.0 on my desktop (I know, it's M$, but it's my favorite mouse). Mousepad is a freebie from my school put on top of the included Dell one from an older computer (works fine for...

    Re: Does this make anyone else uncomfortable?

    My computer also isn't connected to the TV I don't own. But if I did actually watch TV regularly, and this could somehow make the ads relevant instead of for things I'd never buy, it might be handy....

    Re: You thought google maps was scary enough...

    I already know where my own house is, I was just using it as an example. It's when I'm looking up things that I don't know where they are that it really matters. And Openstreetmap is easily the...
  11. Re: [Distro] What should be worked on in Ubuntu to make it even better according to you ?

    Easier wireless, better ATI support, umm, that's really about it now (well, consistent flash sound would be nice; works great on one install, no go on the other, no apparant reason why).

    It really just depends on the specific area being looked at. In some, Google Earth (same imagery as Google Maps for the most part, though with unlimited zoom) provides outstanding imagery, in...

    Re: Ubuntu Installer Is Crap

    Is there an easy way for an unexperienced user to install a dual boot system? I guess Ubuntu could try to figure out what partition Windows is on (assuming the whole system isn't just installed on...
  15. Re: Windows XP vs Ubuntu 6: The Average User's take.

    Partly, you're less demanding than some people (you aren't trying to do wireless networking, which is a big source of headaches on these forums). And partly, you just got lucky with hardware that...

    It's more precise and easier to describe using terminal commands. As long as no one makes a typo, exactly what is supposed to happen will happen. With GUI, you have to describe the buttons and all...

    Re: Run installer in normal user or sudo?

    From what I've done and heard about, better to do it normally, otherwise you have to run the program as sudo, which is a pain, and potentially unsafe (I doubt Google wants to hurt your stuff, but...

    Re: Google Earth beta available for download

    Though with Google, it's hard to say what Beta actually means (gmail is still beta, for goodness sakes). But you're right, this is a pretty early beta, and the first on Linux, so we have to expect...
