    Re: Unity MEGA Thread

    Did I ever say that ubuntu was 'to blame' for gnome 2.X being discontinued? Nope.

    All I said is that ubuntu could have picked up gnome 2.X and kept developing it. But they wont, for various...

    What the GPL says doesnt matter, in this case.

    If someone (not canonical) wanted to use the GPLed code they would have to release the new code under th GPL. But like I said above, "Since...

    The 'K' versions are also slightly crippled as far as virtualisation goes.

    Not a huge amount in it, but the x1600 is slightly faster than the x1300. I'd probably run the x1300 though, fan noise isnt something I like.
