--geometry is only standard for X Toolkit based applications. Gnome applications have no support for this.
I beg to differ. I've never had the opportunity of working for Sun (been detached to Oracle back in 2000) but I've switched from Linux to OpenSolaris about a year ago and I will miss it dearly.
There is definitely an OpenSolaris community and those who want to continue building on OpenSolaris legacy will contribute (or, more modestly use) IllumOs.
I've been a Linux advocate myself for over 10 years. The truth is, OpenSolaris is much more of a professional OS.
A very good point indeed! Somehow, the more things are supposed to change, the more they stay the same. We (in Europe) had big hopes that Obama would break those privacy intrusive agreements with the UE. That did not materialize, probably because the man is not advised by the right people.
Well I also enjoy reading the NYT from time to time. But I left the US 6 years ago and I'm not gonna sign up for a paid up subscription. The occasional curiosity about what's going on in Jersey does not justify a business case.
I guess I'll have to revert to more open options like the Star-Ledger. Is USA Today still free?
To me, it really seems like OpenSolaris has a huge future.
IPS is more reliable as an upgrade system as anything else
I've seen so far. Granted, coming from Slackware, it's not
that relevant. Still, OpenSolaris is a really great system.
