Can't give you a citation. I don't recall the tech, but the digitizer always misread finger touches. Worked fine with a stylus. And no, it was not a Wacom digitizer. I know those (used to have Motion Computing tablet), and besides which they add too much cost to be used with a cheap tablet..
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
I've seen the site. Believe it or not, I know how to use Google.
Show me where it says why the distro exists.
Jesus Hieronymous Christ on a Pumpkin! Are you arguing with me or your imaginary friends? Because nothing you're saying has anything to do with my post. Which was about the fact that distro announcements never bother to explain why the distro exists. What are its goals? What are its special features? Why should I take the time to evaluate it?
Again, arguing with something I didn't say. I did not say that Linux Mint was a sucky distro. I said that if people want people to try it, they should explain why it's so hot.
Speaking of old people with outdated vocabularies, can anybody explain to me why "suck" and "screw" no longer have any sexual connotation? It's just weird.
How is that when people speak their mind it is labeled "racist"? Isn't there a freedom of speech?
It's funny how trolls (and aren't racists a kind of troll?) always get all mad about their freedom of speech being violated, just because somebody points out that they're trolling. As if the 1st amendment covers saying things that are offensive, but it doesn't cover telling people that they're saying offensive things.
So you're saying all racists are assholes? If I were a racist, I'd be offended by your stereotyping!
almost ALL black people are racist.
LOL. I mean jeez, the irony! You obviously have no idea how racist that statement is.
Can you read? I didn't ask why we should care about Linux, I asked why, out of all the gazillion Linux distros, we should care about this one?
The worrying think here is you have posted 8 times
Yeah, nothing wrong with your writing.
And that's relevant because....
You know, I can't make a whole lot of sense out of your writing. Which fits. You can't be bothered to express yourself clearly, so you just throw a blob of words at me and expect me to puzzle out what you're trying to say. And by the same token, you think I should just install the distro and waste a lot of time trying to figure out whether I like it or not. Thanks, no, I got better things to do.
Yeah, I bought a cheap non-name Chinese Android tablet too. There are small outfits importing them to the U.S. As in your case, the build quality sucked, Plus the screen wasn't a touch screen! (You had to use a stylus.) Many video apps didn't work, including Netflix. And the glass broke real easy.
I think it's safe to say that $200 is the current lower bound for a 7" tablet that isn't crap.
OK, they're not using Kickstarter. But the fact remains that the crowdfunding mechanism is a stupid way to buy stuff. If you think the project is unbearably kewl, by all means donate some money. But if you think "buy it in advance so we can get the money to develop it" is a reasonable way to buy stuff, I have a Nigerian prince who wants to talk to you.
If this is just about the user interface, why is this a distro and not a shell? A decent distro makes it easy to change the shell.
