    2. If you stick with the pre-installed netbook remix, everything just works, but...

  7. Poll: Re: Epiphany or Firefox default browser for Feisty?

    It seems abundantly clear to me that the "great unwashed masses" that Ubuntu might reach have only ever heard of two browsers - IE and Firefox. So, if you want to reach these masses, Firefox is the...
  8. Re: Howto Install 32 bit Firefox with Flash w/sound and Java for AMD64

    I did try this, and it seems to work - I get Iceweasel with the expected plugins - but the mplayer plugin doesn't seem to work. If I select a movie trailer, mplayer buffers to 99% and then hangs.

    The products appear to be excellent, if a little pricey. The only thing missing from my standpoint is Kubuntu since I'm not a Gnome fan.
