I also use XFCE.
I also use XFCE.
With a large enough resolution widescreen monitor, you can have the windows open side-by-side.
I'm not managing a datacenter here. Just a local web application development shop.
I personally use XFCE, which allows upto 100 workspaces.
Agreed. Zero resistance.
I also use 2x3 on my laptop. It has a 15.6" screen, 1440x768 resolution.
It took my wife a while to get used to it, but now any time she uses a computer with Windows (eg. Her parents), it drives her batty not being able to seamlessly switch workspaces.
Its a sysinternals tool, called "Desktops". Apparently it works on XP, as well. http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/cc817881.aspx
It is very limited, however. You cannot drag windows between virtual screens.
Absolutely they are not mutually exclusive.
Personally I have a 24" (1920x1200) monitor, and do not have any space left on my desk. With that said, I've always believed I can only focus on one screen anyway, so what's the point?
I have often considered a second, much smaller (6-7 inches diagonal), for notifications/system stats/etc, mounted directly above my monitor. But the hassle of trying to configure that would be more work than its worth.
I am aware of this. But if it is not usable by default, I don't consider it native. Just my opinion, though.
I've used workspaces extensively since discovering Linux in the early 2000's. I find it rather interesting Microsoft is
Any time I try to explain it to someone who has never used them, they always ask me "Why would I use/want that?" and then they always jump on the multi-monitor mantra and say "Why not just get X number of screens?"
I personally have 8 workspaces configured. I use them all. I have my pager configured in 2 rows of 4 grid. My window manager is configured to 'skip' to the corresponding workspace by dragging the mouse pointer to the edge of the screen (with a configurable amount of resistance), so its as close to physical screens as it can get without the cost of buying 8 screens, video cards, plus power costs.
I've argued this in the past on Slashdot here, but I honestly don't see the appeal of physical screens. Maybe Windows people will finally 'get it' when Win9 comes out.
Soon the Apple fans will come and show us all how some physics theory about light absorption when you point something at camera from the right angle will make the light bend just so slightly and cause an illusion that makes the phone appear to have no camera pointing out.
Except that these are software renderings...
Not sure if serious...
Most CA's offer free re-issues these days. Allowing you to change your key, and hashing algorithm, and possibly other stuff.
Firefox has a tap to enable, or click to enable for flash plugins now. I believe it is default now, since v3. I think.
Typically we are dealing with IT staff, and Accounts Payable. Titles don't mean much in these area's, so knowing the managers of the departments is useful.
I certainly see your point, though. There are plenty of movers and shakers out there.
Was the domain being used? Or just squatting on it?
If you were actively using it, and it expired, you have a grace period of anywhere from 30 days to 90 days depending on the TLD, when this happened and who the registrar was/is.
With that said, your point is completely valid. Domain names, SSL certificates, and hosting accounts tend to be forgotten. I own a web design/development/hosting company. We actively maintain records of who we need to be dealing with, as well as their managers in the event our contact stops responding. As well, we introduced a fully managed service in which we manage everything for our clients, and we send them a single monthly invoice. Because it is billed every month, their services continue to Just Workâ, and in turn we are keeping consistent contact with them.
We have had the most problems with non-profit organizations. They are typically volunteer run, with a high turn over rate.
I have never, ever had a problem with ASUS + AMD. I'm not a performance junkie, and typically buy a generation behind.
Mu most recent built Nov/Dec last year. ASUS M5A, AMD FX-8320, 8GB Corsair RAM, Sapphire Radeon 5570, ADATA 64GB SSD, and my already existing pair of 2TB Seagate HDD's.
Running Funtoo Linux. Rock solid. Never an issue. Just upgraded to Kernel Version 3.14.
ownCloud or BitTorrent Sync.
I have found both of them to be incredibly useful. Especially since I have a hard time accessing my mobile files via USB since upgrading to an Android 4.x phone.
