    Time to say goodbye

    After again having had to make the experience that forum staff are neither willing, nor able to address misconduct of one of their own, but instead will focus on harassing and threatening the one who...
  4. Poll: Re: Poll: Gnome vs KDE

    At the moment I really enjoy using KDE on my main desktop machine. I think the main reason for this is that I feel that Kubuntu is finally in a usable state.

    In the releases prior to dapper it...

    Poll: Re: To Ubuntu or not to Ubuntu...

    Well, I don't think it's really an eithor or situation. I'd recommend setting up a dual boot. This way you can stay with XP and at the same time explore Ubuntu.

    If we are not allowed to flame you, can we at least ridicule you, Applefanboy? :twisted:

    Just joking and I'd also be interested in hearing about your experiences.
  7. Re: How come MEPIS, PCLOS, can support mp3s? (Legal perspecitive)

    Ah, of course it was me who was rude and insulting, not the moderator. As we all know, on this forum mods never make mistakes and by definition they don't insult others. So, where exactly was I rude...
  8. Re: How come MEPIS, PCLOS, can support mp3s? (Legal perspecitive)

    AFAIK both Suse and Fedora don't come with mp3 playback.
    Also, I think the main problem is that it's a legal grey area, so many distros choose the safe route of not including mp3 playback by...
  9. Re: How come MEPIS, PCLOS, can support mp3s? (Legal perspecitive)

    It's patent encumbered, exactly, but the actual decoders are still open source.

    And no, I did not know what you meant. I simply did understand what you wrote differently from what you seem to have...
  10. Re: How come MEPIS, PCLOS, can support mp3s? (Legal perspecitive)

    No, mp3 support is opensource, that is, you can get the source code of mad, lame, the gstreamer stuff from fluendo.
    The problem is entirely a legal one as there a patents on mp3 that also are...

    Re: Sorry everybody! The forums are great!

    Well, looking at your original thread, I don't think you have to apologize for anything.

    However, others should apologize to you, though I doubt this will happen.

  14. Re: initial thoughts on Ubuntu/Linux and what need to be improved

    First off, hi and welcome to the forums. :-D

    1. I agree. I don't have any way of testing this, as I don't have a windows partition, but if Ubuntu really doesn't do this, this certainly is an area...

    Re: Does Compiz replace Gnome or KDE?

    I think you have a few things mixed up here.
    First off, Gnome is a desktop environment. As such it uses metacity as its default window manager. The only thing the window manager really does is,...

    Re: Does Compiz replace Gnome or KDE?

    No, it replaces the window managers they use, that is metacity and kwin.
    However, afaik both metacity and kwin will take advantage of XGL/Aiglx in the future, so you won't need to run compiz to get...

    If an OS was only secure because it isn't used by many people, then it really would be a ****** OS and one shouldn't use it in the first place.

    The difference is that you don't need to setup wine or anything else, you just have to install a deb.

    Re: Picasa for Linux released!

    Another false assumption I think. Just because you release your app under a free license does not narrow your target audience to only linux users, let alone linux users who care about such things.
