    I spent the previous 4-day holiday weekend trying to install Ubuntu on my system. Finally, on Monday, it installed, and I even booted into it. Since I had other committments that required Windows,...
  2. Poll: Re: A true photoshop alternative....No not GIMP!! "PIXEL" actually

    Re: Cross platform development

    Re: Cross platform development

    I just started a project to convert a 500,000+ line C++ project to be cross platform. I chose wxWidgets because it's fairly MFC-like, so I understand the basic structure of the framework. It also...

    Re: IDE, QT, and other stuff

    The "difference in eye-candy" factor is one of the biggest problems with Linux, as I see it, and you're right, I was already aware of the visual problems when trying to write apps that are...

    IDE, QT, and other stuff

    I've been a Windows C++ programmer for about 15 years, and I want to start coding for Linux. I prefer the Gnome desktop, and I want to use QT (because it's similar to MFC), but I don't want to...

    Re: The ultimate ubuntu desktop

    For your information, I don't see it either. Our IT department blocks personal pages and most image hosting pages, and whatever you used is one of them.

    Re: Directx = linux's biggest enemy?

    OpenGL is not supported by MS. If ATI and nVidia provide OpenGL drivers, they do it on their own.

    Poll: Re: Linux Desktops for human beings

    I think the article is pretty close to the truth. Linux's biggest weakness is the variety of package managers. Add to that the occasional need to use the commandline to get stuff installed, or even...

    I installed azureus before i saw this. In any case, it still took 8 hours to download after restarting with azureus. IMHO, performance of this torrent stuff really sucks.

    This is a freakin' joke. I downloaded the CD ISO's in less than 15 minutes. With Bittorrent, it's taken me 1 hour 10 minutes just to get the first 90mb. This is no faster than freakin' dial-up.

    Nascar Racing 2003 Season. Why would that matter?

    For what it's worth, I installed it under Wine a few days ago, so I know the CD works.
