    Poll: Re: Fully functioning linux laptop?

    Look up "ThinkPad SL500" on the forums here if you want a good mid-range laptop where it works out of the box with almost no problems. I've wrote about it already, and it's listed on the laptop...

    Re: I stoped testing W7.

    Windows 7 will be a waste of money. I'm going to tell people I know that: Lenovo ThinkPad SL500 + Ubuntu/Vista dualboot = awesome. (Even better without Vista, as I have discovered). Bluetooth and...

    With the default shutdown button I think there's always a prompt. If you want a crappy work around then you could do your own init script which could be run without the need to enter your password...

  11. Re: Enlightenment In Ubuntu 9.04 - Sexy and fast

    That looks pretty snappy. I've seen Gnome, KDE, XFCE, and also Fluxbox... but not Enlightenment. Thanks for sharing :)

    Yep, same. Something is certainly crapping out today.

    [ubuntu] Re: Want to create a shutdown script

    A copy of the home folder would back up most of your application settings (for your browser, email, desktop environment, etc). So yes it's not a bad idea... but I would personally choose to backup...
  14. [ubuntu] Re: Is my laptop too old to run Ubuntu?

    Xubuntu with Epiphany might just be usable. If not, then install Xubuntu and then add Fluxbox (it's kind of annoying at first, but it works well when you customize the menus).

  16. ATTENTION: Laptop testing wiki page is horrible.

    Everyone who has a laptop should update the pages. There are plenty of tests, but they're with old versions of Ubuntu. I see all this old stuff on the community contributed pages - there is still...

    I've used Epiphany before and it was really reliable. The spacing problem might be caused by changes to themes and fonts. Otherwise, it could be the application itself. You may want to change your...

  23. [ubuntu] Re: old or new version better and stable ?

    Using an old version is potentially dangerous, because older versions are no longer supported. If you want something really stable then try Debian. But in saying that - 8.04, 8.10, and 9.04 are all...
