    [ubuntu] Re: Does Ubuntu have this Windows 7 feature?

    It does indeed have this feature. At least in 11.04 (Natty Narwhal). It is safe to presume it is in other versions too

    Re: New To Linux, Using C++

    I also use code::blocks. Like you I used it on Windows 7 and was just used to it.

    I also have the problem that it seems to be all concept now. I can't find a video of the system that doesn't look like it's trying to sell me something (which is the purpose really but you know)

    Sure Graphics aren't everything but still, to me it just seems like a tablet built like a console. I want to support it, but I don't have the money to be an early adopter only for it to fail

    I want to support it, it looks awesome. It sounds too good to be true however. I just can't justify paying 99 euro ($99 + shipping) for something which is an android tablet on a TV, albeit probably...

    Re: C++ pointers

    A few years ago I asked the same thing.

    Pointers aren't very useful in very small programs (the type used to illustrate concepts of C++ or any language) so declaring variables is easier.
