i'm at school. the computer had a black screen. it was on, plugged in right, and the screen was on. i rebooted. it took ages and had some error, so i hit F2 to continue. finally the login thing comes up and it says it's in maintenance mode, so the mouse won't work. i reboot. ages again, same error. maintenance again. so i leave it. it reboots by itself and works this time. it all took at least 15 minutes.

BLAAAUURRRGGH!!


you should move to Linux immediately because there is no point wasting time with Microsoft(c) Windows(tm), they just wont support old computers. for them, NEW COMPUTERS are welcomed. Thats why the appearance of Ubuntu Linux that could be 99.95% same as Windows 7 whilst just require a VGA, 256 Mo of RAM, intel pentium 3 or better. AND, you can still customize it! Meanwhile, Windows 7 just wont support such old computer. AND DON'T BE SAD!!!!! Linux always giving a warm welcome to both old and new computers.

"Linux, because a 486 system is a terrible thing to waste."

"If microsoft would gives you Windows, Linux could gives everybody the whole Home"

despite being angry with the old computers, please install Linux and you'll love it.

version of OS for old PCs
Microsoft: The older the better
Linux: The newer the better

version of OS for new PCs
Microsoft: The older, much faster whilst newer version is not as fast as older version
Linux: Both new and old version of OS is much better.


Everybody loves Windows, yeah, everybody loves it because of its fresh air, and hell, I love my door also...

actually, the windows 7 rc ran pretty decent on my wifes 8 year old (maybe older) dell dimension 8400 with a p4 3ghz single core, 1gb 533mhz ddr2 and an nvidia fx5500 256mb card that is at best a mediocre video card. I am not defending windows, I am just saying that it _will_ run decently on older hardware..i consider 5 - 8 year old hardware old...just like MS does...sure they want you to keep spending money on upgrades and new hardware...im sure they get a piece of the money you spend on the hardware upgrades..but it ran fine on my wifes old hardware. The newest piece of hardware in my wifes machine was the FX5500 nvidia card.

Who's the idiot? Re-check your dicitionary. To sell means to give full ownership over a goods in exchange for money. Full ownership means full control. If I bought a product I want full control over it. If I sell a product, I give up controlling it, the new owner do with it whatever (s)he wants. That is what selling and buying is all about.

In the case of Windows7, you give money, but Microsoft keeps the ownership over every single compy of it. How do you call that? Fair trade? I wouldn't say so...

Which means you are actually buying the EULA, not the product that comes with it. They are selling permissions to use Windows under specific terms, not copies of Windows itself.

A month has passed since the blackboard servers in my university have gone down. But the fun twist in the story, known as per yesterday, is that they crash due to an unknown error in their M$ exchange database! The assistance Blackboard team worked with the university's IT team, and though they managed to get blackboard working, the database is still borked. Now they are talking about REBUILDING THE DATABASE FROM SCRATCH (and don't come with the crap "there's a solution", they've been a Month looking for one). Thank you, M$, for helping me get educated in getting out of your products.

GNU/Linux makes a decent desktop, and depending on the distribution ...a decent server. Redhat 6 is old as sin, why would you even want to run that? If you must run linux on a server, use debian or slackware. Otherwise...my personal favorite for a server is FreeBSD. Youll get much better performance out of freebsd. FreeBSDs SMP support has been beating the crap out of the linux kernel since FreeBSD 7.

Yeah, it's not a word, but everyone says it. Whatever. Let it go. You can't complain to everyone who says it. Besides I've never seen anyone use "pown" ever.

Also - it's IRC. Not mIRC. mIRC is just a crappy IRC client for Windows.

I just purchased an eeepc 1005hab from best buy that came with win 7 starter. What a piece of junk. You cant even change the background on it! Not to mention its just the regular windows interface that is not very useable on a netbook. After 2 days I decided to make a bootable ubuntu netbook remix usb key. I am no ubuntu fan, i hate ubuntu, but it damn sure makes the eeepc much easier to use and its alot snappier. Damn Microsoft, chop off a feature that for sure everyone will notice and want, just to make you pay for an upgrade after you just paid for the netbook with the POS chopped up version of windows on it! I cannot wait until EB4 comes out (formerly eeebuntu but will be debian based as eb4). Thats what my eeepc will run when it comes out!

hi Dear,

I pretty do not understand you. Why on earth buying an eeepc with Windows7-Starter on it??
And why do you hate Ubuntu?? Ubuntu is just the best Linux-Distro that one can get!!! It supports so much Hardware and it is opensource.
Then most Windows-apps have been turned into real Linux-apps and work fine unter Ubuntu 10.04.

OK, there have been problems the last days. But the developers are doing their best to cleant up the mass, that is caused. Look into Launchpad if you have greater difficulties or come over into our forums like this one: http://ubuntu-forum.de . There you will receive real help.

So please explain your hate against Ubuntu. This is not fair and it is no fair way of treating Ubuntu.

Greetings
Karmicbastler

propriatory drivers?? what??

I do not need any propriatory driver for my hardware here on Lucid!! All my drivers are opensource!!!

Cups for my Multifunctions-machine (printer/copier/scanner in one machine),
the opensource-driver for my WLAN-Stick as well as the Ubuntu-driver for my Typing and mouse.
Also my Monitor (Acer Flatscreen) is wellsupported by Ubuntu.

So I do not need any drover from anybody.
So why using propriatory drivers?? Which Hardware has he got?? Then perhaps I could help him getting this running in Ubuntu.
I just need more Details for his hardware. Perhaps he can send me a comment in the mentioned forum.

I am willing to help him.

you hate ubuntu because some people make that kind of wallpaper more for ubuntu than other distros?

ubuntu itself is pretty good, imo.
u don't have to use wallpaper like that. it's not even default.

read the whole thread, I gave plenty more reasons that I dislike ubuntu than just the dumb wallpapers their stupid community makes.

Well, the man has the right not to like Ubuntu. I am using Ubuntu, too, but I don't tend to make a cult of it. It is not anything sacred. I am a free software and free culture supporter, not an Ubuntu fanatic. There is a LOT of GNU/Linux distros, and also a lot other different free operating systems. Why force anybody to like one better than the other? It is a matter of tastes and specific needs. I like Ubuntu, but I don't find that people who dislike Ubuntu and rather use, I don't know... Gentoo to be some kind of enemies, nor unenlightened people living in ignorance. They just have their choices. Windows users mostly are ignorant, not users of other GNU/Linux distros. :-)

Actually, I was thinking of switching away from Ubuntu lately, too. But I think I will still install Lucid when it comes out stable... I am still a bit hesitant... But if I switch, it will be Sidux or Debian testing. I somehow like Debian-based distros best.

I run debian testing (squeeze) on my desktop, my wifes desktop, and I believe eb4 (formerly eeebuntu) will be debian based, so that is what my eeepc will be running when it comes out.

I would recommend sidux though, everytime i test a release of sidux..its a plain bitch to keep upgraded... apt-get upgrade breaks it everytime ...

I guess you wanted to say you would NOT recommend Sidux, if it brakes every time you do an apt-get upgrade...
I don't know. I tried out a little bit Sidux Xfce some months ago, and it seemed pretty stable to me. But I wasn't upgrading it...
Well, when I become bored enough with Ubuntu, I guess I will give it a chance. If it fails, I will most probably use Debian testing release.

Can you explain a bit your experiences with it? I mean, how stable is it? I know there is Lenny, the stable release, but its software is a bit old, which is why I am considering Squeese, or any latest testing release. So I am interested in its practical stability. How up-to-date is it, compared to other distros? It has a two-years release cycle, if I am correct, is it an issue for people who like to use the latest stable software out there? Is the switch from Ubuntu a smooth experience for an intermediate Ubuntu user?

It is. Eb4 beta is already Sid-based. My girlfriend uses Eeebuntu3 on her EeePC, she is waiting the new stable release, too. The beta seems to look very promising. But she prefers to stick with the stable releases, as she needs stability and reliability on her netbook. Which is why she chosen this distro. And I guess Eb4 will be great stuff.

Ah, well, Im not to hot on debian sid, in my experience, debian testing is much safer to use. Debian sid gets alot of broken packages and "paper bag" errors. So I may have to look for something other than eb4 for my eeepc. Debian testing (squeeze) gets regular application upgrades everyday...without the problems Ive experienced with sid. As for sidux, the first thing I do with any distro is upgrade its packages , after an apt-get update and apt-get upgrade, its broken the desktop just about everytime. If you want to run sid, Id just install debian lenny, change my /etc/apt/sources.list to reflect the sid repos and do a dist-upgrade. But I would recommend using a daily netinst iso of squeeze personally.

Well, actually, Squeeze is Sid-based, too, and you are happy with it. Why not give a chance to Eb4?
Most ambicious deb-based distros are Sid-based, as Sid is the development release of Debian, and what is in development is unstable.
It just doesn't make sense to build a house over a house that is already stable, am I right? Sid is the foundation and the bricks to build new "houses", which is why all ambicious deb-distros are built upon Sid, including Ubuntu, Eb4, OpenGEU (is swithing to Sid, too) etc... Other distros, based on other stable distros, like Linux Mint, Elive or BLAG are just a work of decoration and furniture choice and placement.

The fact that the Eb team has switched to Sid, means they decided to get serious and walk on their own, without bothering about others' releasy cycles and other annoyances. I wish them luck, and hope for a great Eb4 release.

Ill sum it up real easy, and just imagine me speaking REEEAAAAL slow so you can understand. And I'll be hoping you can add.

debian unstable snapshot+debian unstable pkg repos = ubuntu = profit for ubuntu!

I would call "walking on their own" building their distribution from scratch, like debian did. Ubuntu and none of its respins "walk on their own" seeing as how they just use a debian unstable snapshot. So really eb4, OpenGEU, Sidux, and the others you are mentioning are just riding on the back of the debian development team for the most part :)

That is why Debian (especially Sid) is called also a "meta-distribution", a distribution of distributions, because it is the base for making other distributions. Eb4, OpenGEU, Ubuntu, Sidux and others are part of the Debian "family". They are all contributing to each other. Besides, most developers of deb-based distros are also active developers of the Debian meta-distro.

Are you saying you are not an autonomous human being, just because you have a family?

And then again, keeping your logic, Debian and other meta-distros are "just riding on the back of the Linux kernel and GNU development teams for the most part".
And, returning to my human being metaphore, I never heard of a human-from-scratch. :-)

It is always a combination of already existant elements that makes a new thing. This fact is one of the basic ideas of free software, free culture etc. movements. If you don't understand this...

What is your motivation for using Debian? Being damn cool in front of average Windows users on your job? Bitching around Ubuntu users? Using Debian makes you feel as a cyber-ubermansch motherf*cker?
Grow up!

...and read a book for a change! ;-)

First of all, I openly recognize the fact that Linux is not an OS at all if you paid attention to my signature, moron. Otherwise it wouldn't need to be called GNU/Linux. (Figured Id go with something a little more subtle than motherfcker, sorry I wasn't aware that was your mom).

What made you break out the name calling? The fact that its true that maybe 20 % of 300 active distributions actually "walk on their own" by my definition, or the fact that You couldn't come up with something more intelligent than "motherfcker" to use?

Lets see, my motivation for using real debian has nothing to do with what others use. I could care less what you use, you asked for my opinion, and I gave it. Good to see you were able to keep it civil :) (That was sarcasm in case you are to ignorant to pick up on that). Maybe its because Ive been using it since ..oh..around 97. Im also a Slackware and FreeBSD fan :)

For the sake of this group, I'll ignore anything you have to post from now on, since you start name calling like a pissed off fourteen year old stepchild if someone doesn't agree with you.

You should learn to read texts more carefully...

First of all, you say Quote:

I never put that in question... I was just trying to point out that nothing comes out of nothing, neither Debian.

And second...
When exactly did I explicitly call you a motherf*cker? I did use that word, but not in the sense of calling you so. It was part of the phrase "cyber-ubermansch motherf*cker", in a question about your motivations. And "motherf*cker" is not always an offensive term... And I certainly did not use it in its literary meaning, as you were seemingly assuming. The question may be insinuatory, sorry for that. But even if my last questions were an overreacted insinuation, it is just the product of the impression you left on (not only) me with your other posts and your profile. You give the impression of being prepotent and a bully. You started with calling an entire community to be stupid, you are calling people "stupid shits that think Linux is an operating system" (although I agree it is not), you have a man with a gun as your profile picture, you confirmed all of what I am saying right now with your latest posts on this group...
Treat others as you would like to be treated. Otherwise, don't complain.
