So he turns to TV for help and for guidance
A lot of his virtues he picked up from Linus
Fonzie taught him what it means to be cool
From Doogie he learned that he must go to school
Three's Company taught him that just acting gay
Could lower the actual rent he would pay
Cops showed beating your wife and your neighbor
Could immortalize you and your double wide trailer
You're wrong, because there are plenty of gimp users who have never used photoshop more than a handful of times.. I dont see any appeal in photoshop whatsoever, gimp does everything I need, and I LIKE the UI. I've never found it to be confusing or unintuitive, it works quite well, I probably wont even use single window mode when 2.8 comes out, it just wouldn't be all that useful to me, the current setup works quite nicely.
Not everyone is a recent windows convert who needs to make their linux install function like their windows install used to. I haven't touched in a windows box in 5 or 6 years, I dont miss any of the software I used to use over there.
i did a clean install on my laptop (non-essential machine and a clean install goes a lot faster). The process was very quick and painless, by far the most pleasant ubuntu installation yet. the only issue I've had, which seems to have cleared itself up, with some updates, was that ctrl+C wasn't working in my terminal,it wouldn't do anything at all...
overall i think the improvements in karmic are more significant than many of the previous releases, everything looks and feels better. thumbs-up to the chocolate brown color, the orange was starting to get played-out. a friend of mine was here when I did my reinstall, when it booted up to a beautiful, fully functional desktop just 20 minutes after I started the install, he was so impressed he took the live CD home and installed it for himself.
Its been 3 days and I've yet to have a single question or complaint from him.. everything is working including his sound card, which wasn't working under windows. he even figured out how to get mp3/xvid support all by himself. I'm both proud of him and of ubuntu. things have come a long way.
No amount of careful planning will ever replace dumb luck.
