Ive been using Chrome since the early alpha stages of the Ubuntu build & i have to say i never used firefox ever again. I just can do everything i want to with a browser & FAST!! IS time for FIREFOX to do something about their speed. Is Google can do this im sure they also can..
Finally good news! Ive been using the development version of Ubuntu for months & i'm very happy using it every day. Is fast! & work without any prob.
I agree! Linus did a great job starting this, bringing people together. He should get this price NOT for him but for everyone involved in this opensource revolution.
In the Netherlands you have colleges where the teachers tell you to forget about Linux, because only Microsoft counts
I have a friend wanted to make a school project using a Linux server + Apache, his idea was rejected by the IT teacher.
There are also schools where they give stimulation ONLY on using MS products..
i still remember 2 important days.. 1 - the first time i saw linux, at a friend house, he showed me Red Hat (dont remember the version) back in 1999, he told me this is going to be the future.. i was like (what the he.. is that) 2 - a couple of months later i was installing slackware linux, i still remember entering X using startx (those where memorable moments)
i could do the startx thing for hours.. i was amaze how a black screen could turn into a graphical environment...
Ive been using Jaunty since alpha3 & as lot people say, its rock solid! i got a quad core intel machine where running this version of Ubuntu on 64 bits takes my computer to another dimension. Wel done!
Im so tired of hearing this every time.. this has become the most used excuses by IT management to not use linux for common tasks. i little bit of a system administrator can do things with linux for free in 1/2 the time you can do with all of the expensive tools in twice the time. I think personally the problem is you..
THis is why i like Linux... is a about freedom, about doing it your self, about working together about just being different. About not being a company.. about having a nice mascot, about feeling you can do a lot + more.. love the ad..
You've got the point.
If you dont like fast boot on your desktop is a personal thing. I love this, i hate to wait a minuut for a system to star, im a fast computer user & i like computer to be fast (evenbooting) linux booting fast on home desktop is the right direction to go.. off course we've got sunpend & a terrible hibernate that doest work right. But i like to turn my pc off once in a while. About syncking your phone, just getan android & you will never need a cable to sync you phone contacts.. you are right about polishing & integration, that why distros are for, thats why Ubuntu kick every other distro asses big time.
Fedora is like a playground for new technology, i can imagine someone want this on their systems. The funny think is they are not bringing anything interesting for the desktop, i forgot they made a nice wallpaper on f10 & the nicest boot splash ever & a lot of bugs. I a shame Fedora/Red Hat dont do it right on the desktop, they got a nice installer & Red Hat based distros are awesome, in some way i totally dislike Fedora.
YAFBR (yet another fedora-bug release)
this is the post of the year.. thanks for saying the true.
This is so true... Red Hat & Fedora just sucxx on the desktop. Suddenly a young distro out of nowhere comes in & redesign Linux on the desktop out of nothing.. now we talk about cloud computers
