    Re: Getting ready to jump ship?

    Well, I'm currently test-driving Linux Mint 10 on my alternate root partition. My biggest hassle was the loss of my wireless network on the initial install. It's a known issue with the initial kernel...

    Re: Getting ready to jump ship?

    I did think about that. It has been a while since I test-drove XFCE.

    My concern here is that with the push for Unity over both GNOME and KDE, that Xubutnu may also fall by the wayside.

  9. [gnome] Archive Manager (File Roller) won't handle tar.gz??

    I'm mostly a CLI geek, but every now and then I use nautilus and run into a major annoyance with file-roller aka archive manager.
