    Only Amiga, Windows 7 and iPad TouchMe games count, because this is Linux.

      Never, and it would require me to learn a new programming language. I can and do translate text strings and if you are using Norwegian language then you probably see those strings all day long.

        what's wrong with Gentoo anyway ?

        *subscribes*

        I gotta tries this ppa in the near future

        until now I had seen a decline of quality of *buntu releases (on the one hand) and on the other hand I was really happy that lots of stuff works better than ever (e.g. out of the box)

        but, e.g. take an Upgrade from 9.10 to 10.04 - which totally screwed up a system I had to manage so it kept on (hard-)locking on and on

        when the proprietary drivers are involved it's still more of a PITA than, e.g. on Windows, Gentoo, or other OSes

        call me paranoid but who guarantees that the PPAs are safe - are they maintained by members of Canonical ?

        also - bug-management is quite bad in ubuntu - it's understandable when thousands and thousands of noobs post the same error message but they at least should appoint some community members to *nix those duplicate bug-entries ASAP and go to fix bugs ASAP - sometimes it really takes ages - even when it's (potential or real) security usability, etc. issues

        anyways: it's good for managing


        @FunkyRider:

        do the negative, zoom, Expo and Wall plugins work ?

        I'd really like to try out Ubuntu for some time and see whether it is able to save me time - this always had failed for me in the past due to needs not being met (e.g. drivers-versions, up-to-date software [specific libraries, etc.], etc. etc.)

          call me paranoid but who guarantees that the Arch Linux mirrors are safe with no package signing whatsoever...

            that's the reason why I stopped using Arch & besides that some packages were seriously outdated (e.g. fluxbox from 1-2 years ago (!))

            but we're getting offtopic here


            anyone has experience with the OSS drivers and flash ?

            is it fast enough for flash-videos to work (e.g. Youtube)

            how is the stability for everyday work and compiz ?

              HD5xxx should be at the same level as HD4xxx now.

              I watch youtube all the time. Even fullscreen, no problem.

              Of course, if you stream 1080p stuff, you have the same software decoding issues as always.

              Other than the annoying KWin crash bug (which has been fixed), I haven't had any stability issues whatsoever, in a long time.

                Should be...now.
                Which means that you got to wait for some time till the drivers hit your distros repo - unless you want to go using something like xorg-edgers (for Ubuntu) which is unstable, untested, buggy and will crash on you.
                For Ubuntu people, that means wait till they hit Debian sid, get stolen by Ubuntu, slept on for 6 months and then get shiped through a release. You waiting for the next next release, at least, which I believe is code named Orgasmic Octipus. Or was that Horny Hippo?

                  why you are so full of hate?

                  you also can use the ubuntu 11.04 beta release and in 3 month now its stable.

                    Or you could switch to a distro which packages the drivers.

                    Or you could complain on an internet forum.

                    I'm going to play some open arena, you keep complaining here, let's see who has more fun
