Well there's the Ubuntu category:

http://cogizio.org/category/op…..ems/ubuntu

It simply holds all the posts I've written about Ubuntu though. 

Good things include: Ubuntu Tweak, Using Adobe Air (an application platform), running Windows apps in Ubuntu with WINE, getting Microsoft's fonts, and my initial (long) review.


Hey thanks locutus. He doesn't use the netbook edition but I am sure some of these things will be helpful for him. Especially how to run Windows programs from Wine. I have never had a linux system so it is good for me to have the info in case I ever switch. A free OS is a big deal. If it is good.Laugh

@Jyo

Yes it had a 1 year Manu. Warranty which resets to a brand new 6-month warranty after every repair.

I mean their last model, since this happened they have moved on to a brand new model (which looks pretty slick).  Im kind of hoping to get a refund, since what I payed for back then will get me a better laptop now (*shifty eyes*). 

 

Favorite linux distro -> Linux Mint.  It is the pure spirit of open-source community based software.  At least the proprietary-software-free version is. Wink

-.- Thanks for taking a second look Ashraf. But the spam here is generally a lot longer, has more pictures and less quotes… and isn't written by an admin.  Yell Wink


Actually now I have limited how many links users can put in a post, so now spam will be a lot shorter Wink.

That said, enough off-topic – sorry OP!

Right.  “Let's take the most popular consumer Linux distro and put a pretty skin on it!”  “Ooh, and then let's make a fancy site and stuff!”

That's what Mint is, In My Humble Opinion.

Oh, the site that was :(

Hmmm… you all do know that FreeBSD is the only worthwhile OS, right?

It's me

Yes, for the most part that is all it is.  However, the entire development process is heavily influenced by the community and, for a large part, even performed by the community.  Ubuntu does not do this.  They have a developer-developed roadmap.  So the whole OS and all its features are molded by what the users want instead of what the devs think they want.  It also has a better package manager and is designed to handle media better (built-in codecs).  And yes, it does look much better then Ubuntu. 

I never really paid much attention to Acer computers.  I had never heard much of them and their computers really did not look that special.
