    Re: An ideal Ubuntu Store (DRM)?

    Books with DRM illustrate my point exactly about DRM. If some author can't be bothered to care about exact word choice, then I can't possibly be expected to care about their words as a reader. By the...

    Poll: Re: Your thoughts on Ubuntu.com without Community?

    If a job is too big for one person, then you delegate parts of it to subordinates, or is that concept too difficult for the people who are in charge of Ubuntu? Are you indicting them of that absurd...

    Poll: Re: Your thoughts on Ubuntu.com without Community?

    There's your problem right there. "When issues get brought up..." You're reacting. You know why that's happening? I'll tell you: It's because PR isn't doing its job and keeping us informed. Whether...

    Re: Why all the Gnome Shell Hate?

    To refute argument, you'd have to first make one. So far, the only thing you've asserted is that everyone except people who agree with you are wrong. That isn't logically coherent enough to even call...

    [xubuntu] Re: Doubleclick to maximize not working

    I use 400 ms. That default of 250 is a little nuts.

    Re: Why all the Gnome Shell Hate?

    If I wanted to kludge together a desktop, I think I'd start with Openbox and work my way up (like the way Crunchbang works). I don't want panels at the top and bottom and then have some huge sidebar...

    Re: Why all the Gnome Shell Hate?

    The only thing this statement succeeds at is in convincing me that Gnome Shell proponents are seized by what Mark Shuttleworth called tribalism.

    Re: How is Ubuntu so great?

    Ubuntu is great in that they developed upstart and put together the first distribution of Linux that came together in a nice way for desktop users. Ubuntu remains great in that it offers most of the...

    Re: Why all the Gnome Shell Hate?

    Nice. A thread about "Gnome Shell hate" displays so many more hateful words towards those who offer criticism than toward Gnome Shell.

    I've tried it, and I find it extremely inefficient and...

  12. Re: Why doesn't someone do to Linux what Apple did for Unix?

    What a tidal wave of nonsense!

    Macs are well built? :P

    Macs are actually built on Mach + Unix + a bunch Mac stuff, not just Unix.

    Universities mostly use Windows, not Unix. Unix is mostly...

  14. Re: What do you recommend if watch my DVD movies on Microsoft Surface tablet?

    Interpreting whether usage is infringing or fair use is also technically illegal (i.e. impersonating a lawyer). With that in mind, I would only say that if you fear that you are violating the law,...

    [SOLVED] Re: Connecting to a PPTP VPN

    I think DNS is set in IPv4 or IPv6 settings, the same as normal, only the traffic is routed (mostly) through the VPN.

    It's not so much that calculators are normally wrong as much as they normally assume that you're immediately performing some operation. For example, if you punch in 2 + 2, a normal calculator will...
  19. [SOLVED] Re: Backup files (*~) visible on Xfce/Xubuntu desktop.

    Interesting use case. I think most people don't see that because they put documents into their ~/Documents folder rather than their ~/Desktop folder. The thing is, if I were to put all my documents...

    [SOLVED] Re: Connecting to a PPTP VPN

    VPN gives you an open connection to the internet, so you should be able to find anything that its DNS lets you find. If you're using UFW (or any form of firewall), double-check your settings to be...

    Poll: Re: Should I buy PS3 or Xbox 360?

    I love how Xbox fanboys read the first four words of my reply and ignored the rest. I was speaking of DURABILITY. The Xbox 360 is infamous for its lack thereof. The PS3 is far better designed in that...

    Poll: Re: Should I buy PS3 or Xbox 360?

    PS3 is better hardware, so it's more value for your money. If you don't mind having to buy new hardware every couple years, then I guess Xbox would be fine.
