    XQbABnY, It would be cool to revive the idea. I don't have much time to play around with scripting but I think there are a ton of people that could benefit and we could make some pretty cool/useful...
  2. [ubuntu] Re: Which kind of processor is better for my requirements...

    You should get the k55a with the i3. If you want to go to the i5 you could do that if you can afford it but the i3 should do everything you want.
    If you ever want to try out kvm then the i3 will be...

    Bash is a scripting language is it not? From my knowledge I don't really see how you would create a user interface for it. Do you want an interface to create bash scripts? I can't see the use of that...

  9. [lubuntu] Re: Dell 450MHz Pentium II 1GB dog-slow with Lubuntu 10.04.4

    Agreed with mastablasta, don't use 10.10, go with 12.04. It shouldn't run any slower if setup right and def go with server edition and if you need a gui use openbox, icewm, flux, or something like...

    Re: Do I need a Graphic Card?
