Subject: Half-Life 2 On Wine Is Faster On AMD R600g Over Catalyst

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Here's an interesting finding: at least when running under Wine, Half-Life 2 is faster on the open-source AMD Radeon Linux driver than when running on the proprietary Catalyst driver. There are also some other similar results where these Windows games have the advantage when running on the Gallium3D open-source driver.

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

In my opinion, the login sound of Linux Mint is quite annoying so I believe many people would want to disable or change it. Although the method to disable login sound in Ubuntu 12.04 does not work in Linux Mint 13, there is another very easy way to do the task.

Subject: Welcome To Ubuntu's Penguin Bar - How Can I Help You?

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Though it’s not likely to happen, there is a possible way, however, to make Linux the next “big thing” in consumer computing. It would require a lot of money, thought and work – and the stars would have to be aligned just right – but if executed properly might just give Tux some lasting traction on the desktop. What if a commercial Linux distro with deep pockets, say Ubuntu, decided to become an OEM and follow the Apple model? What if Shuttleworth decided the best way to sell Ubuntu was on his own machines? After all, right now he can’t really sell the desktop version of his operating system at all, he has to give it away. But if he packages the OS with an impressive Ubuntu branded computer, there might be some money to be made.

If you just dropped in from outer space, Apache OpenOffice, or what used to be called OpenOffice.org, was a Sun Microsystems-sponsored project. It was at one time, the most popular office suite, as it was pre-installed on almost all Linux and BSD desktop distributions.
