No wallpaper sums up my feelings about vista as much as this one. Sweet.
Well.. maybe this mod of it 🙂
Dvorak nails it on this column. But a couple points: I look forward to the day when I read an install review without any minor glitches (yes, they are far and few between – but there’s still work to be done). Secondly, when you take his advice and you hit a snag. Don’t give up.. Buzz me or ask in the Ubuntu forums. You’ll find the answer.. now back to Dvorak’s comments.
I’m tired of dealing with Windows malware, patch Tuesday, and the never-ending deterioration of the OS as it clogs up like a drain in a greasy-spoon restaurant. I can’t take it anymore.
And there’s something else that always bugs me about Windows. I have an iMac that I use at the office, and a few times every month Apple has some patch that it sends out. With few exceptions, each time a patch is installed with the Mac OS, the performance of the machine improves. With Windows, the performance always declines.
I don’t think Microsoft has ever sent out a patch that improved the performance of the machine. Ever.

To my mac lovin’ pals: Read with an open mind. 😉
It may sound strange, seeing as how OS X is based on a Linux variant and is widely considered to be the most user-friendly operating system available, but Linux does a number of things better than everyone’s favorite iOperatingSystem. Before you shun the thought, read on. You might be surprised at your resulting opinion.
I installed (upgraded to be exact) the Beta of Ubuntu 8.10 and it’s by far faster and “just works.”
Yeah! My video in Skype (still waiting for Skype to get serious about Linux, or find an alternative) now works (so I can see that my cam is not showing my head) 🙂 Also working without extra effort: NVidia drivers and Broadband Wireless.
More updates when I have a little more time. If you have played around with it and find it better (or worse) than a previous version post away… oh and the new “DarkRoom” theme is McAwesome!
I imagine when the news that Microsoft first signed Jerry Seinfeld for 10 Million dollars to push Vista, that Steve Jobs and Co. at Mac had this “oh, this can’t be good” feeling in theirlower intestinal regions. Well the ad is out.. and it is just bizarre.
Ad-man-super-genius, Roy Williams, has often said, “know what to leave out.” But in this case It’s almost like an admission that Vista does suck.
That wind ablowin’ is a collective sigh of releif from Mac.
Cup of Ubuntu anyone?
If you stop by here often or get my feed, it is probably no secret, I like Ubuntu. One of the great things about Linux is that it comes in other flavors and even people using the same distribution (“distro”) as you may have loaded a theme or customized it (see my last post) so that it look very little like your own.
If Ubuntu is not your thing, that’s fine. But don’t give up on Linux because of one experience with one distro. E-Linux.it has some (4) good Ubuntu alternatives they like along with the pros and cons they saw.
