Too not much enough coffee happens to all of us.
Yes, SSDs are a bit more costly these days.
Ten times or more is not "a bit", twit.
Based on the performance gains, it's usually worth the investment.
Wrong as a blanket statement. For some specific usages, maybe. For a lot of others, no. Just no. Not worth 10X more $; often not worth ANY more $.
Maybe eventually SSD will replace mechanical storage, but not until you can go to a store and get a 3TB external for like a hundred bucks.
Don't be silly, people aren't going to buy 3TB disks once SSDs become affordable in the 1TB size.
Absurd non sequitur, AC. It doesn't matter a whit what the size of the SSDs is; what matters is the total cost of storage device plus driving hardware per GB.
1) And when will that be when 1TB SSDs reach 1/3 the cost of 3TB HDs, eh? They are currently over 3X, and it has taken a long time to come from 5X to 3X. I currently have ZFS storage in several RAIDZ2 pools on a total of 18 3TB HD's. It cost me about $2200 for the drives. Yeah, I could have used 54 1TB SSDs (plus a hell of a lot more SATA ports, which would mean a vastly more expensive motherboard plus more expensive HBAs) instead, but that would have cost me at least $27,000.
2) People who have a clue about endurance and data retention and need a lot of both are going to use HDs even if the cost of SSDs ever reached parity. It is ignorant to suggest otherwise.
Is that per month? It seems expensive. It depends on your needs, of course, but as I'm a light mobile user I end up paying about $60 AUD per year for my mobile service. For my usage it's a really good fit. Sadly the plan I'm on is no longer offered to new customers.
Does your plan give you unlimited texts, unlimited data, and 300 minutes of talk? I thought not. For most users, VM at $35 is a good fit.
Calligra Flow is definitely the most useful of the apps in the sense of being irreplaceable.
Well, it's utterly irrelevant for server use, so it can't be THAT important, but it is definitely right up there for Desktop linux, which COULD potentially have a whole hell of a lot more penetration than it does now.
I wonder, how does it relate to compositing engine? Ain't surfaces already drawn using GPU accelerated function when using GL-based compositing ?
I would like to know this too. And not just with megabuck megawatt GPUs, but with something reasonable like Intel HD2000, 3000, and 4000.
That means LibreOffice Impress is fine, right?
But I do know
It's easier at 30 than at 40.
Which is easier than at 50.
Which is easier than at 60, since no one has done it at 60 yet.
Stupid people and people in loser countries do, evidently. The rest of us are on no-contract Virgin Mobile.
I think I can describe what was behind my rather rude description. The only reason I mentioned it is that there isn't that much to find fault with in KDE.
I compare the applet to the GNOME2 weather applet, which to me is perfect.
GNOME2: everything I care about is right there. Current temperature, wind speed and direction, dew point, whether it is fair or stormy. A nice succinct text forecast that includes expected snow accumulation if relevant. Weather radar. I think that's pretty much it; I haven't seen the thing in six weeks now. So I don't have to click anything at all to see the current temperature, and the rest is all available instantly.
KDE: it shows nothing at all until I click on it; just a huge yellow ball. When I click, all I see is cryptic numbers. Top line, "Day", "Night", "28" and "1". I assume the first two are for today and the last two are the upcoming two days. So far, so good. Second line, 4 pictographs showing sunny, dark, cloudy, etc. Nothing wrong with that line. Third line: 4 temperature figures. The first two look like today's high and low. The last two seem, forgive me, to be pulled out of someone's ass. I want to think they are the predicted highs for the upcoming two days, but they aren't even close. Last line: 4 more temperature figures. The first two I can't figure out what they are for. The last two seem, lacking insight, seem to be more ass-pulling. They bear no relation to the expected lows of the upcoming two days.
My phone actually shows me much more right on the main screen, without even running anything discretely.
P.S., maybe I have the wrong weather applet installed in KDE. It's the one that says "powered by wetter.com". It's kind of hard to say which one I installed, becauser there is no "Help, About". It's the only one I happened to see without maybe going to a lot of trouble.
Not quite sure what you're on about. I was pretty careful not to put any hate whatsoever into the comment. I'm past anything like that, personally. I didn't (and don't) even recommend that no one else use it, or touch on any pros and cons. All I said is I am done with it. It is irrelevant to me.
It's not faith. It's necessity.
You could say this is quibbling, but you can't "keep contained" that which has been wildly uncontained for 3 years. The phrase does not make sense. Rather one should say "contain further release of contamination within specified boundaries, and specify what is to be done about the vast contamination which has alrteady escaped those boundaries, at least some of it to the 4 corners of the earth's oceans".
I don't care what happens with GNOME at this point. I will be using either KDE or Xfce. I have been GNOME free for long enough to know that I am not going back. I evaluated Xfce long enough to know that it is quite satisfactory, if not as perfect as GNOME2 was. Now I have been on KDE for five weeks. I have issues with the control over icon placement on desktop and taskbar, and the putrid weather applet - otherwise, absolutely no issues whatever.
I'm afraid the MATE DE is not yet good enough to live with. I evaluated it; it is very promising; I support the effort, but it's no replacement for GNOME2 yet. I'm not sure anything will ever be, but that's life. No car is anywhere near as perfect as the glorious 1978-1982 Audi 5000 either, and nothing has come along to equal the late Icom IC-R75.
