    I went cold turkey many years ago, without knowing ANYTHING about Linux. I loved it from the start, never even thought of going back or having a dual-boot (whatever for?).
  5. Poll: Re: "Sent from Ubuntu" poised to become default Evolution signature in 10.10

    I don't see what the big deal was. You could easily turn it off, and the harmless bit of promotion is the least we can do as users of this fantastic, free OS.

    Re: xfce4-mixer and ALSA

    I may have gotten ahead of myself.

    The mixer again shows only OSS-Mixer and I again don't have sound.

    What's worse is that I can't get alsamixer to open. Now I get the following message:

    OK, if I can get past the boot-up, I'll try that.

    No. Can't. I tried with an older kernel, and made to X, but it broke down right away.

    Hi guys. I just updated from 9.04 to 9.10 (it's a long story, and I still can't go beyond 2.30).
