  1. FUD article (with comment area) on Google News

    Just saw this on my Google News page -- the author is parroting old FUD claims without doing any personal research:

    [ubuntu] Re: Ugh!

    But only if the person has backed up their user data, I assume? Giving the entire disk to Linux without backing up first could make for a very freaked-out angry newbie when they go to access their...

    [ubuntu] Re: Switching Screens

    I ran into similar issues when I first started -- Ubuntu isn't identifying the monitor's resolution correctly, and it's probably defaulting to 1024x768. The first thing to try is to go into the...

    Hi Amin --

    I was wondering the same thing a few months ago, and found this really useful old forum post after a lot of searching:

    Poll: Re: How do you pronounce the word "been"?

    That's bizarre... I've always lived in the SF Bay Area, but assuming "bean" rhymes with cream or dream, I've never heard of anybody pronouncing "been" that way. Maybe it's one of those unusual...

    Poll: Re: How do you pronounce the word "been"?

    I'm from California, and all three sound distinctly different when I say them (I just tried each one several times to be sure):
    been --> like enter
    bin --> like inter
    bean --> like screen
  7. Poll: Re: What desktop enviorement/window manager do you use?

    I switched to GNOME & XFCE a few weeks ago, after messing up the KDE 3.5 install I had enjoyed so much. (Ooops.) I figured that since 3.5 isn't being continued and I'm not a real fan of 4, I might as...

    Poll: Re: Honda vs. Toyota

    My car for the past few years has been a 1993 manual Toyota Corolla, and I've been surprised at how much I like it. :) Aside from good mileage, it has amazing acceleration (powerful engine in a...

    [ubuntu] trial-and-error, here we come ;)

    On the off-chance that it works, try editing it as root. To do that, you'd call up a console/terminal window or the "run" command from the menu, then type:

    sudo gedit (if you are in Gnome)
    sudo...
  11. Poll: Re: To boldly split infinitives which no person has split before

    I picked the "not if you want to look intelligent" option because it reflects reality... In everyday conversation, most people don't notice or care, but if you're writing an academic essay or legal...

    [all variants] Re: Please stop the CRASHING!!!

    No, they're pretty much universal in web-based forums these days, as it's built into most of the common software for running one. They're used by people with all kinds of skills -- so is Windows, for...

    If you can't get out of the loan, perhaps you could (as some students did at the university I attended) buy the computer they want you to, copy & submit all receipts/paperwork, then return it for...

    I don't think so. There's quite a bit of pollution produced at all the stages of production of wood as well, including creating the tools needed for all those stages & transporting them all to the...
