    I was gonna vote for Wascally Wabbit, but I like yours better :D
  2. Holy hell, you just summed it up quite nicely...

    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 ;)
  3. I am all of these things: geeky, experimental,...

    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...
  4. True. But do you think we'll ever see any drives...

    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...
  5. How many here run the various rc kernel releases...

    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?...
  8. Wait... you mean it's possible to configure a...

    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.)
  9. SSDs are quite durable these days; go ahead and...

    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 :)


    I'm not sure it's possible to get a machine...

    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.

    What is the login...

    Hm...here on Ubuntu 14.04 it would appear otherwise...


    steve@t520:~$ cat /sbin/dhclient-script
    #!/bin/bash

    # Explicitly set the PATH to that of ENV_SUPATH in /etc/login.defs and unset

    I've always used the Xorg-Edgers PPA to get updated drivers and newer X stuff. Never had any problems on the three laptops I've used: ThinkPad X1 with Intel graphics, ThinkPad T410 with nVidia, and...

    What? Equal pay for equal work is discrimination against men?

    Probably more than you think.


    Do you have a private network connection -- and I mean physical, built from your very own copper or fiber -- from your current physical location to every web server...

    Ellison got his rant all wrong. He admits he doesn't know jack about cloud, and proves it whenever he opens his mouth. Cloud doesn't replace SaaS -- SaaS is type of cloud. Cloud deployment models...

    http://lmgtfy.com/?q=viber


    I use it every day. Most of my friends have it. Hundreds of millions of other people do, too. Nice alternative if you don't want WhatsApp by Facebook.

    Like some others here, I prefer a KDE native browser, too. I had to give up on Rekonq because it would crash a few too many times. And the crazy bug where the address bar can't keep up with typing...

    Wow. I'd have thought most people here would prefer to ditch Plymouth -- I find scrolling boot text to be rather reassuring.
  20. That might have been true years ago, but is...

    That might have been true years ago, but is certainly not true anymore. Kubuntu's focus now is to be as vanilla KDE as possible, and to work out of the box. Give it a try.

    Full disclosure: I'm a...
