Journal Journal: Switched to Ubuntu fully a month ago, and quite pleased. 1

I recently switched to Ubuntu from Windows on my computer, and haven't looked back. Amarok, Openoffice, and my old time favorite Firefox keep me company, and I must say, everything keeps me happy. Everything just works for once, uptime's great, and I can do a lot of new things. I should have switched earlier; I never knew it could be so simple yet so powerful!

Journal Journal: Recently installed Ubuntu, now what?

So I recently installed Ubuntu on my server computer, but since I'm horrible with Linux, I'm not too sure what I really want to do with it. Maybe I'll host a web page on it, but all it's doing right now is running BOINC. What do you think I should do with it?

Windows

Journal Journal: Windows has Autoplay enabled for the C drive by default?

I recently installed TweakUI to disable Autoplay, and what do you know: It's enabled by default on the C drive. Yes, apparently, I'm going to insert a new C drive like I do CDs. Brilliant, Microsoft. Just brilliant. That's not asking for an exploit or anything AT ALL.

Contents of the email are as follows.

Seems something screwed up.

Journal Journal: Microsoft using Google Adwords? 7

Recently I was browsing a site, and noticed something odd in the Google Ads.

Linux Comparison Get The Facts: Windows vs. Linux. Read The Independent Analysis Now. www.microsoft.com/getthefacts

Last I checked, Microsoft was in competition with Google. So why are they paying Google to advertise instead of going through a different company?
