    Hey there

    I rescued an iMac G5 from a dumpster a few weeks back. It worked fine in OSX, but I want a real OS, not one that looks like it was designed by Crayola.

    I've installed Lubuntu 12.10...

    If 16gb were written, it's a 16gb card. Are you sure you didn't lose the files due to corruption or a mistake?

    Crunchbang is essentially Debian. It uses apt-get.

    Poll: Re: Ubuntu Community Laptop/Netbooks

    We don't know if it's actually customized, of if they've just squirted vanilla Ubuntu on there. Chances are, with the hardware it's got it will work with any modern OS, so it's just vanilla ubuntu.

    Poll: Re: Ubuntu Community Laptop/Netbooks

    surely if it comes with ubuntu and you want to put something else on, it's the same as having no OS? since you're going to wipe it anyway, and theres no such thing as a 'linux tax', heh.

    3.x are tablet-oriented releases, they won't be great on a netbook like this.

    What you quoted answers all your questions - it explains what to do, and has working links for the files you need.

    Someone who knows python (probably the easiest language to learn) could modify the OS incredibly easily, I guess?

    In the old days there was cshell, where the syntax was similar to that of C. What about pyshell, where the syntax is similar to that of python, for scripting?

    Re: Unity MEGA Thread

    I'm going to say it again, if something is licensed at GPL, it cannot be made proprietary. Now, the MIT and BSD licenses are different, but Unity is mostly GPL.

    Um, do you actually understand the GPL? Under the GPL, all derivative works must be released under a comparable license.
