Anyone else use Cinelerra? I couple years ago it was a bit unstable at times but had some powerful features. It is probably only better now, although I haven't checked myself.
Watch out there. You're drawing an incorrect analogy between Linux and Windows/Mac. Linux is a kernel, not an operating system.
If you asked where to change screen resolution or network settings on Gentoo, Ubuntu, Fedora, or Arch, they all have a single answer. While these answers may not agree with each other, they may be changed by the user if they find that a certain management application offers more comprehensive controls over their settings, or if they are more used to one over the other.
You cannot compare Linux as an operating system.
I'm not sure of the actual mass, they never mentioned it last time I saw them, but they did say that the rover could be operating for a large portion of the "day" on the moon.
It has a footprint of about 7 feet by 12 feet, give or take a foot in each. Two reasonably strong men were able to lift up one end of it when they were positioning it for a movement demo, so it can't be too massive...
When they say permanently shadowed, they mean from directly above. I have seen the rover (I attend CMU), it has solar cells that face toward the horizon, to capture the small amount of energy that comes over the side. Apparently it works pretty well and efficiently, or so they say
This is good news for all hackers and techie people. I personally can't wait to get my hands on one, I've been itching to see how good of a web server one could be by itself.
In other news, the recorder of the video has the same mouse cursor set as me! Jimmac forever!
I completely agree with you, I used KDE 3.5 for some time, but about 3 years ago I happily switched to fluxbox and have never been dissatisfied about my switch. Lightweight, simple, and easily configurable. That's all I could want from a window manager.
I've actually been using the ATI drivers with a 4 year old, but still very reliable, ATI HD3850. I've had no complaints, besides the fact that horrendous screen tearing occurs if you don't have a composition manager like xcompmgr running. I still agree though, they are making the right move. If ATI can't maintain their code or care to improve it, so be it. I do know the next card I'm getting is nVidia for sure. But honestly, I run a lot of games both through wine and natively, and they all run with on average top fps, with highest settings.
Nowadays I wouldn't quite refer to linux gaming as limited, you just can't quite play the latest and greatest games. Although Skyrim worked (almost) right out of the box, and after about 6 months of a game being out there are usually ways of making it work decently
I run KDE 3.5.10 as well, but my Kate does have sessions so....
I was just thinking along the same lines, having also just played through Braid. The game really was much different and introduced unique concepts to the player, but it allowed the player to ease into the situation and feel out how the game should be played. Of course, upon dying for the first time, and having the game indicate to press the "Shift" key, I was momentarily nonplussed when I came back to life. I hadn't seen anything about the game before I played...
Obviously, the lurking variable that the people in Japan MAY just be drawn to a vending machine that talks to them and is technologically advanced could not have possibly been a cause of the pickup in sales....
the only way to prove it's suggestion ability is what draws the people would be to put in a machine that suggests based upon random selection, that is identical to the others.
