I have about 19 tabs open right now, reading an article on one site, seeing an interesting link and opening it up in a new tab to read later. Happens so frequently within 5-10 min of browsing i usually have between 10-15 tabs. (middle mouse click is my best friend) Tabs are the best thing to ever happen to a browser imho.
i remember the first computer in my house, Some packard bell that ran Win95, i think we got it around 95. I first discovered linux 2001, i was eleven years old, It was a copy of SuSE in the depths of my dads desk drawer, i installed it on my amazing Pentium III running at a whopping 900Mhz. I think i played around with that, not really knowing what i was doing until a friend of mine gave me a copy of Ubuntu when i was in 7th grade, maybe 2002 ish. Thats when i really started learning it, got my first game server up and running on linux, reading a whole bunch of tutorials and getting familiar with the terminal, yes i know i was born a geek don't make fun. Since then ive been fascinated with linux, if ran everything from debian, suse, fedora, centos, gentoo, and currently Arch. Im now 23, 12 years later still using linux, Arch linux to be exact, and its been running amazing on my desktop for the past 2 years. I love linux, ive taken classes in college, im trying to get certified, and hopefully one day land a job as a Linux SysAdm. Theres just something about the open source community that i feel fits who i am perfectly, i love all things free and open, and i love to share these things with the rest of the community. I plan to use linux for the rest of my time. i use windows when i have to, thats about it, ive got my A+ and MS certs, thats good enough for me.
This is cool and all being that linux is slowly starting to take off in the world of the gamers. But my bigger concern is, what is dell/alienware doing about the IvyBridge switchable graphics? I have an Alienware M14x R2 with the 3rd gen i5 and a nvidia gtx650. BIOS doesn't let you enable just the video card you must run ivybridge at all times, so how do they plan to implement Bumblebee or maybe their own type of driver? I have ran ArchLinux on my alienware for a few months now, and i have barely been able to get bumblebee running nicely. Ive even switched my laptop over to Ubuntu at one point just to see if it was a difference in distros, which it wasn't. Unless nvidia has secretly been working on some kind of driver for the Optimus cards that i dont know about, then i would say this might be a bad move right now imho.
Its so true, ive been doing this for quite a few years now, im still in college finishing up my CS/IT degree, and to be honest i have been seriously thinking about switching my major to something unrelated to CS or IT. Ive been working in the field for at least 5 years now, ive done work in data centers, tech support (in house and phone) and when i just started i worked in a computer shop fixing pc's. Im only 23 and i can barely deal with the stress and b.s. that comes with the job(s). Computers are what i know best and always have, but really because of the work environment and people you work with, I really don't think this is what i want to do for the rest of my life.
Am i the only one that feels "Hard-Coded" should be the word in quotes, not Left and Right.
This seems dumb imho. I run a CentOS server, I like to install a desktop interface onto it because there are a few things i use the server for that do require a GUI. and its also nice to be able to just open a web browser quickly if i need to test my internet connection after making changes since the server and my switches and modem are all in the same room. First thing i always do is install chrome, i was so happy to see it available for CentOS.. But now its gone. I guess ill just switch back to Chromium.
I wish there were more events on the east coast. I live in NY, i rarely get to see many events out here. I've never been to a Linux event before, something i would like to do one day. But traveling across the country is not something i can really afford right now (broke college student). Maybe next time around there will be something closer
Its called pre-paid. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_United_States_mobile_virtual_network_operators this is a list of every pre-paid carrier in the US, and what carrier they mooch off of. So if your so called "only" carrier in the area is on this list as an MVNO carrier, then you can take your unlocked phone to that provider and pay WAY WAY less than any on-contract carrier.
So will these drivers be available on linux systems too? i think im still using Catalyst 12.9
My java is still enabled, I only have disabled icedtea-web for the browser side of java. it still is telling me its out of date.
So lets say on the odd chance my new playstation dies in a fire or implodes or something these new fancy consoles like to do, and i am forced to replace it with another. Technically this is another console, so are you saying i have to buy the same games i already own again? Or is this going to be more similar to Steam. Using keycodes with the disks that are assigned to a users account, so all they need is a user id and password to play their games anywhere. Next question is, would you still need to have the disk to play it once its been registered to you? Honestly i this this idea is DUMB. You will put gamestop and game rental companies out of business. People will eventually find a way past the DRM so theres no use in even trying. Plus i still like to trade games with some of my friends for a few days to see if i even like the game before i buy it. Leave the DRM bullcrap and game linking to the PC world, this sort of thing doesn't belong on a console. Sony, IMHO if you want to restrict people to what they can and cant do on a gaming console, not many people will buy your console, this is a very bad move.
I still wont switch to KDE. I just don't like it. Gnome 2.X is still my favorite or just keep it simple with LXDE.
Do the ones at the Gym count too?
I have a Lenovo x120e running Fedora 17, its a pretty small but not too small laptop. they are built nicely and can take the abuse from elementary school kids. another good laptop is the Latitude D & E series (D630, D680, E6400) all of them run ubuntu pretty well, and lenovo and dell both offer linux drivers on their website so you know everything should be supported
yup, Nokia Lumia 900. I love it
