Subject: Using Ubuntu To Create An Illegitimate Referral Based Profit Center

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

Dirty Deeds, Done Dirt Free. As we near the release of the biggest consumer-oriented commercial software to ever hit Linux, some negative realities from other platforms may make a nasty appearance in Ubuntu.

I am sure that my first experience with the original Postal was very much the same as it was for many of the other people who have decided to give it a go over the years. Having by that point been finally convinced to play and thoroughly enjoy the game's much more infamous and elaborate sequel

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

What is new in ROSA Desktop 2012? I believe there was a huge work for the "under the bonnet" stuff. But this is not so much visible to users. The interface changes are more likely to attract the attention.

We talk a lot about what might be done to fix the problems of software patents, but not much about abolishing them. What would that look like? Could abolishing software patents all together be the solution to our patent problems?

In a presentation at Ubuntu Developer Summit currently going on in Denmark, Drew Bliss from Valve said that Linux is more viable than Windows 8 for gaming. Windows 8 ships with its own app store and it is not an open platform anymore.

Subject: Windows 8: Does Microsoft’s Split-Personality OS Make Sense?

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

“The requirements of small-screen mobile devices are incompatible with those of large-screen fixed devices,” Norman says. “Windows 8 has a problem. The real business workhorses of Microsoft Office are not well supported by the mobile apps. So Microsoft had to provide a backwards-compatibility mode, which provides the necessary power, but makes things even more confusing.”[Not FOSS, but still of interest to LXer readers]

Subject: BackBox Linux 3 review

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

Because it is based on Ubuntu, its installation program is Ubiquity, Ubuntu’s graphical installer. But the version of Ubiquity in BackBox 3 is the pre-Ubuntu 12.10 version, so full disk encryption and automatic LVM configuration are not supported.

Subject: Review: Ubuntu 12.10 Desktop (DistroWatch Weekly #480)

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

After a day and a half of using Ubuntu 12.10 it was an internal struggle not to wipe my hard drive and just find another distribution to review. During the first twenty-four hours Ubuntu spied on me, provided performance which was distinctly sub par, the interface regularly popped up errors (sometimes so frequently the first pop-up wouldn't have faded out of view before the next one appeared), the update notification didn't work and it wasn't possible to turn off accessibility features through the graphical interface. Adding insult to injury, the Unity dash kept locking up or losing focus while I was trying to use it and the operating system crashed more times than not while trying to shutdown or logout.
