at least remembering what I forgot when I installed the last time.
KDE. I hated it. I had messed around a little with other distros/environments but not enough. Then my ex-boss had a
project he wanted me to work on in the last few weeks of my ex-company's operations. He wanted it on Ubuntu with the
default Gnome flavor. I was empressed, things were easy and everything seemed to work. I installed and started to dual
boot with it at home and very quickly it became my OS of choice. If I had any questions I thought the forums were very
friendly and helpful.
I dislike Gnome3/unity, I was ready for something else. I tried Fedora but not enough and felt Debian was the next step in
the evolution. I don't think Debian people are as friendly as the Ubuntu crowd.
Although I must admit I am beginning to warm up to GNOME Shell.
lot of older versions of programs such as GIMP and VirtualBox. Those I am not happy about wish it
game with the latest versions of those programs.
then Debian should.
I wouldn't run a debian stable on a desktop.
testing usualy is stable enough (unless the first 2 months after stable is released...)
there are also backports, if you like to install more modern software on the aging stable stuff.
dependency that was needed.
Feh, maybe I should just get away from the Debian style and move on to something else.
"known problems" list doesn't make me happy.
cute, with sata connector. and a little more steam then the pi.
Why don't use install Android x86 on your desktop? They also have a live version. I have it running on my old Dell laptop although I
can not get the broadcom wireless to work.
Hint for the wise if you are going to install Android x86, don't allow it to install grub, it doesn't look for other OS if you do. It
uses GRUB 1.x. Say "no" to install grub and you need to install it manually into your current grub file. (/etc/grub.d/40_custom)
should read "and you need to add Androidx86 manually into your current grub file."
or... get a linux kernel > 3.4 and try running the android userland next to your traditional linux userland
I can't sign on. "Wireless unavailable" I don't know why the browswer finds the bridged lan but nothing else will.
The multi-boot stand alone version of Android doesn't connect at all. The laptop uses broadcom chips and many people are saying they can't
get Androidx86 and broadcom to play nice.
However, the one feature of Android that makes an adaptation possible is the fact that it has pluggable launchers. A group of developers serious about bringing Android to the desktop could build a desktop friendly launcher.
However, I think the real opportunity would be to build an Android stack that seamlessly merges itself into a conventional operating system. Android apps could appear in the system menu alongside native apps, and share a filesystem and other system resources. Considering that Microsoft is trying to blur the line between its monopoly desktop and its shitty phones and tablets, the rest of the world should do the same.
(Apple could do the same with enabling iOS apps to run on a Mac, but that doesn't sound like the kind of thing they would do.)
since whomeveer I pass over my netbook these days (be it with pics displayed, or some browser) starts touching the tft and wipes over it (regardles of the (un)-technical background of that respective person)..
I guess the acceptance factor of Machines without at least some sort of direct screen content manipulation will quickly decline.
So either camera/kinnect like interfaces or touchscreens will shurely take over the pc-world in the next two years or so.
And I guess "we" (yes, me and you nerds) are also going to work with these devices in our spare time more and more.
Maybe some booring workstations remain mouse/keyboard only, but BYOD also brings these touch devices massively into professional environments.
I'd give 5 years here for that change to happen.
No, Microsoft aren't early to that party... and... yes, as in the browser they did pretty much to get it right and win that battle... and yes, their approach is clumsy... but I guess they will have at least some success with it. And... while apple has multitouch input devices available for their notebooks/desktops, its not yet point/touch screens.
