    Yeah, I'm curious about this, too. I mean, we already have these toolkits that render window frames and buttons and menus and all that. Why is it preferable to use HTML for this purpose?

    I have a Fire TV and rather like it. So why would I need a Fire TV Stick as a companion?

    Anyone else seeing a problem where the driver thinks you have multiple monitors when you actually don't?

    My ThinkPad T520 has a GF119M (Quadro NVS 4200M) chip. I've disabled the Intel graphics in...

    I tested it for about a minute on YouTube and it seems to work fine. Wrote up some instructions for folks on Kubuntu Forum (where I'm an admin).

    That's an overbroad generalization. Not all PPAs are alike. I've been using the Xorg Edgers PPA for years and it's never been the source of problems.

    The package kdesdk-dolphin-plugins in many distros will add little sqaures on the lower left corners of icons in your Dropbox folder.

    Using 64-bit Kubuntu 14.10, I tried an experiment this evening:

    steve@t520:~$ sudo dpkg --ignore-depends=ia32-libs -i google-earth-stable_current_amd64.deb

    Then:

    steve@t520:~$ google-earth ...

    Hm. Then how do people even get that thing to install? The last Ubuntu release to include ia32-libs was Raring. On Debian Wheezy 64-bit, ia32-libs depends on ia32-libs-i386, which isn't available for...

    I was gonna vote for Wascally Wabbit, but I like yours better :D

    Holy hell, you just summed it up quite nicely there. Not sure if it's worth the time to follow this "news" or even read more comments. Ah, what am I saying? Can't help it...will keep reading ;)

    I am all of these things: geeky, experimental, know how to fix, have backups, report bugs. Also running production systems (my work laptops), am an adult, have a day job, not a lot of free time. But...

    True. But do you think we'll ever see any drives supporting it? I typed "sata 3.1" into NewEgg's search bar and no drives showed up...

    How many here run the various rc kernel releases on a regular basis? Usually I wait until the finished product is available. But if the rc's are of decent enough quality, it seems reasonble not to...

    I've had a Crucial 256 GB SSD in my ThinkPad T520 for over almost three years now; sees daily use about 12 hours per day. No problems at all.


    The consensus seems to be not to do this in fstab --...

    Agreed. It's what I've been running on Kubuntu since 13.10. I'm not perceiving any performance problems here. (ThinkPad T520, 256 GB SSD, LZO compression).

    But Plymouth? What in $DEITY's name for?...

    Wait... you mean it's possible to configure a system without an initramfs? Is this an Arch-only concept, or does it apply to other distros, too? (I'm using Kubuntu now.)

    SSDs are quite durable these days; go ahead and put your swap there, too. If the system has to swap to disk for some reason, let it be fast still :)

    Correct.

    What is sh? Let's look:

    steve@t520:~$ ls -al /bin/sh
    lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 4 May 10 12:46 /bin/sh -> dash
    Thus, anything that calls sh will actually call Dash.
