    Re: How do you pass time on the Internet ?

    Reddit is probably my #1 go to now that G+ is dead. After that I like reading random crap on Wikipedia and I also love the old-school telnet BBSes. I'm also a lover of old tech, so reading old tech...

    Re: Low activity ?

    Yes it's been nice seeing Pop OS grow in the last few months, I got it pre-loaded on my S76 laptop, but it's still new enough as are their latest models that there's lots of conversation to be had. ...

    Low activity ?

    Hi all. 10 years ago when I bought my first System76 laptop this forum was very active, and a nice community of S76 users cropped up to chat about their systems. Now it's only a hand full of posts...

    Re: Where have all the users gone?

    Your post is about 8 months old, but I was actually going to ask the same thing. I used to frequent this forum daily for lots of active chat, but it and most of the other areas on UF's are kinda...
  7. Can the Kubu run with the cover closed with an external monitor?

    Hi all. First, it's been a while since I visited Ubuntu Forums, and lots of crickets in the S76 forum... it used to be hopping! Anyway I'm looking at the Kubu laptop, and i'm just curious if it'll...

    Just passed my 10th year on UF

    I just noticed in one of my posts that I joined Ubuntu Forums in February 2007. I haven't been as active as I once was, seems like Cafe has really gone sparse in resent years, but still great to see...
  10. Anyone else looking forward to the new Gazelle?

    Hi all. I've been a happy System76 customer for about 7 (or maybe it's 8, can't remember) years since I got my PanP5 many moons ago. it's rock solid and still runs like a top, though I'm running...

    Re: Battery for PanP5

    Thanks. This does look like the battery, so I'll compare the numbers and see if they match. Also $45 isn't bad, when I first priced a new battery about 3 years ago it was closer to $100.

    Battery for PanP5

    Hi All,

    Does System76 or someone else still sell batteries for the PanP5 Laptop? I bought it in 2009, and it still runs great except the battery lasts like 10-15 minutes tops. Thanks.

    Max RAM on PanP5

    Several years ago in 2010 I asked this question, then it got resurrected again in 2012. The thread is here. Today I ran across a PDF I saved from the System76 site on March 2009 which I assume is...

    Hi, I'm dualbooting my PanP5 with Xubuntu 12.04 and Windows Server 2012, which works rather well by the way on the 4 year old laptop. It's using the stock Microsoft audio driver for the audio device...

    [xubuntu] Re: Installed Xubuntuy 12.04

    Hardware can go out with any vendor, so honestly don't take this as a hit against S76. I hope to buy the latest and greatest PanP later this year since my laptop is going on 4 years old. It still...

    Yup, I've been told by a few folks at S76 that the PanP4 and PanP5, which is what I have, max out at 4 gigs of Ram. Sad since I really need more ram, but oh well.

    Which PanP do you have? My PanP5 is running Xubuntu 12.04 and the SD card works without a hitch. One thing I'd suggest is booting from one of the Ubuntu or even the Xubuntu live CD's and seeing if...

    Re: How Old Were You When You Started Using Linux?

    Just age is kinda misleading since a 13 year old could say he'd used Linux since he was 11 and sound like a boss :)

    For me I started using Linux around 1996 or 1997, can't remember exactly, and...
