Probably between 1000 and 100,000,000 civilizations in the galaxy.
The dimensions of thumbnails are as pertinent as the file size itself. The clutter-free look is very attractive in a world where every other forum has animated gif avatars, large colored signatures and superfluous use of !!!!
It is akin to how people post to mailing lists with the entire thread quoted. It's just bad netiquette.
The cb-welcome script starts by updating your sources list, then prompts you, by category, if you would like to install that category, or [s]kip. It's an interactive method for running a bunch of predefined apt-get install commands, this includes printer support, Libre Office, development tools, the Liquorix kernel, and some more. Nothing fancy yet simplicity rules.
Essentially it is is Debian + Openbox, albeit with some preconfigured, sane, defaults that runs tint, conky and compositing. Under the hood you can reliably use all the Debian tools you love.
I believe #!'s target audience is the person who already knows what they want, who enjoys or wants to learn how to tinker with the system, and who wants to help others do the same. And the forum certainly reflects this, brightly I might add
You are correct. The existing system will stay intact.
This is not aimed at changing packages that are already part of the
Ubuntu archive; for the most part our existing system works well for
those, and they tend to have non-trivial dependency structures. We'll
continue to use dpkg and apt for building the Ubuntu operating system,
syncing with Debian, and so on. There's no point developing a packaging
system for apps and making it have the full panoply of features needed
for the Ubuntu archive: it'd just be second-system-effect on top of our
current packaging system. So the scope of what I've been considering is
purely leaf apps built on a fixed "base system", which in the case of
the initial target of the Ubuntu phone/tablet work would be the run-time
part of the Ubuntu SDK.
Ditto. It will save your sanity too!
Wrong. They need *community support* like so many Linux distros have. I have never had better help from the community than I ever, ever got through paid support.
This will never happen though! These people bought, along with their licensed "rentals" of Windows, a sense of indignation that stops them from entering and contributing to a community support structure. It requires a certain level of humbleness.
$ apt-get moo
A pity they drew the "gamers" slip and not "tech support clients" when they drew from the "target audience" hat.
The ratio of pirate copies vs bought copies may be obscured by platform.
Looking at past Humble Bundle stats (games _without_ DRM management) it shows that even though piracy is still as abundant, the same amount of people are still willing to pay. Even more interesting, though Windows buyers ouranked 75% of others, Linux users payed the most on average.
I used The GIMP for commercial design work, many times over. No problem. The fact that people can't reuse their pricey or stolen PS plugins makes them deluded that GIMP is not on par.
Similarly MS Office macros are the biggest culprit in crossing over to Libre.
Openshot video editor comes to mind, there is AVIDemux, ffmpeg or mencoder.
Visual Studio 2012 sucks compared to my Gedit or Geany, seriously. TFS integration lags the interface, the treeview is buggy: it randomly does not show build context menus. Intelli sense breaks randomly while the project seems to think I am still working on checked-in files which only VS restarts can cure. There is negative space all over, it was designed by drunk 5-year-olds.
These are just tools, the process starts with you. If you rely on a specific tool to be good at your job, you are nothing more than a replaceable ant.
Don't be an ant.
Will test some more with various settings. Thanks for this
Also that implementing and using encryption for personal use is more techy than the average being can handle. I'm hoping that https://silentcircle.com/ can approach this issue. Extra points for taking note of the founders...
Yup, those sugary and fatty foods provided sustenance for those periods when food was scarcer, when your body relies on fatty deposits.
Super markets eliminated the need to hunt for food interspersed with periods of shortages, but the latent craving for those sugary, fatty treats still remained.
Indeed, they might not care at all, but they act like they may give an iota of a crap.
But, the commission said, Google did not engage in illegal wiretapping because the data was flowing, unencrypted, over open radio waves.
I concede this means little regarding moral privacy, I mean they did it anyway, right?!
It was a wake-up call to people who are too ignorant or lazy to secure their networks. People need to learn, good for Them!
It falls in line with a campaign to raise awareness about what information you put out there.
