    Poll: Re: XFCE vs KDE vs GNOME

    ok so somewhere there's a commonly accepted definition that says modern means 3 to 4 years old? think not. To some people a modern computer is means only this year's, to others it means anything with...

    it matters if the user sits there feeling annoyed and bored cos it's taking 10 seconds to open a browser or 5 seconds to open a simple file manager. This stuff gets noticed much more than a 5 second...

    Poll: Re: XFCE vs KDE vs GNOME

    agree Xubuntu != Xfce, but Feisty Xubuntu was one of the best Xfce distros I've used, being fast, light and with sensible default apps. With Gutsy it kind of went off the rails imo with perfectly...

    yes, no problem. Install the package xubuntu-desktop; this is a meta-package which means it describes all the packages necessary for Xubuntu default desktop. You just select xubuntu-desktop and...

    Re: Software you MOST wish was open source

    those games are probably great on wine if you don't mind a huge perfomance hit and unexpected behaviour. I bought Call of Duty when I had Windows. Have tried it on wine and the wine interface...

    Poll: Re: amd or intel, nvidia or ati

    I'd go for Intel CPU and either Intel or nvidia graphics. I'd also be very careful to find a laptop with Intel wireless. In the last year I have run 3 laptops with various distros and set up my gf's...

    Re: xfce vs. gnome

    On a really decent PC you won't notice too much difference in performance comparing Gnome and Xfce but as soon as you're not using AMD 64 or Intel Core 2 Duo you'll see differences. Gnome is...

    There probably aren't many individuals who can write their own device drivers, and even those who can are often going to be stuck at the point they ask the vendor for hardware information and get not...
  14. Re: What would make Ubuntu win the Desktop War? This.

    No, that isn't true. There's no implicit correlation between monetary cost and freedom. If there's some free(dom) software you want but everyone who has a copy wants you to pay for a copy then you...

    Re: Why do you really want it to be open?

    I want the software open so I can share it with a clear conscience. It's possible to get "freeware" for Windows but unless it's also open source then who knows what it contains? I don't want to share...
