    [ubuntu] Re: everything is so slooooow

    Your hardware, video driver, and swap clearly aren't a problem then.

    Could you describe in more detail what exactly is slow - just the Web browser or the rest of the OS as well? Are only some...

    Poll: Re: I don't think Linux has 1% market share.

    I take all conspiracy theories very seriously, as long as they are grounded in at least some degree of reality. Microsoft does not control the 6+ billion people in the world who do not work for...

    [ubuntu] Re: wubi vs dual booting

    I disagree with the terminology used on this thread. Wubi is a way to install Linux for multi-booting with Windows (dual, triple, or otherwise). The alternative to multi-booting is installing only...

    Use a utility like EnvyNG (which also comes with a Qt GUI) to see if it recommends a different video card driver. If the changes recommended by envyng don't work, you can run it in console mode to...

    [gnome] Ubuntu spills the pr0n

    These aren't what you'd call normal privacy or usability flaws, but nonetheless something to consider:



    Ubuntu could use an equivalent of the Windows CCleaner utility, which in addition to...

    [ubuntu] Re: How to view webpages without pictures

    Maybe a text-only proxy like via proxify.com would be an ideal solution?
  9. [ubuntu] Re: Anyone know of any good audio players to keep an eye on?

    I'm keeping an eye on the idea that your Web browser will soon also be your ideal media player thanks to HTML5's use of Ogg Vorbis / Theora codecs.

    This means you'd be able to play...

    Re: browser wars!

    A piece of software loses points on my "Software Freedom Scale" for any reliance on government force (in addition to the obvious things like DRM, EULA that forbids copying, etc). That means Public...

    You seem to be confused. You're the one arguing for government force here, except of course for your own benefit. How can you expect to use government force for your benefit (GPL) and not have the...
