  1. Let's aim for Google Chrome start-up time for all apps

    One of the things I like about Google Chrome on Linux is its start-up time. It takes about 1-2 seconds on IBM T23, PIII-era laptop.

    Why is so fast compared to Rhythmbox, Gedit and other GTK apps?...

    Re: Proprietary Software - Philosophy

    Reasons for not porting to Linux:

    * no platform as such exists, it is just a bunch of libraries put together

    * Linux users generally prefer free software, that is both gratis and libre. Adobe...

    Good rant, I completely agree.

    Re: Package Management Idea...

    Use case:

    Install firefox1, firefox2, firefox3 on the same system using debs.

    Is not easily done.

    Could easily be done with eg. Zeroinstall. Debs are not the answer for everything.

  9. Re: When Ubuntu can't even upgrade without hassles,how can we rate Ubuntu over Window

    Nice to see a mature and thoughtful response.

    Yes, I agree that it does help to be honest about the shortcomings of Ubuntu. That's why I don't "convert" anybody to Linux. They need to ask for it...

    This project doesn't mean a damn thing.

    There are already projects for installers. We need binary compatibility but the distros won't do that. That's why users are having a hard time.

    Re: What happened?

    If you have lots of problems with compiz, just turn it off.

    I agree with you though, that they shouldn't have put it in. Only put in when it's ready.

    Also, I think it is a bit naive to go...
  12. Re: When Ubuntu can't even upgrade without hassles,how can we rate Ubuntu over Window

    No, that's not possible with arch.

    With Arch you are upgrading the OS and apps all the time, just like debian testing or debian unstable.

    I meant an OS (kernel, X, Gnome) stable, not touched...
  13. Re: When Ubuntu can't even upgrade without hassles,how can we rate Ubuntu over Window

    I have a lot of breakage when upgrading from one release to another.

    This is not only caused by using 3rd party repos, it is also caused by the lack of quality in Ubuntu. I came to this conclusion...

    Re: Linux Needs a GOOD photo management app

    Blue Marine could be a nice contender for a good photo management app:

    It still needs some work but it seems better thought out than any of the other apps.

    IP? Does that stand for Intellectual Property?

    If so, then this is a term invented by Microsoft and does not exist.

    Correct terms are: patent, copyright, trademark.

    Have you tried opensuse?

    They have better X configuration tools than Ubuntu.

    I also had to fight with xorg conf to get decent refresh rates on Ubuntu 7.04.
