    Many gamers build their PCs from scratch using carefully chosen components, so the more expensive the PC, the smaller the relative cost of a Windows licence.

    For businesses, the cost of a PC with...

    Just to be clear, in this context updates = bug fixes, updates != new features/upgrades.

    There are many advantages to upgrades: better performance, it can take a while before drivers are...

    I either use XFCE or KDE; the latter particularly when I have a high resolution display and want to be able to tune the sizes of the UI to be the right size. I've stuck with KDE since 3.x, and yes,...

    I would like one of the android and linux tech sites to try and interview Imagination and ask why they are clearly hostile towards linux. If any organisation deserves Torvald's finger insult it's...

    I have a Fujitsu U820 aka U2010, a lovely ultraportable, with a nice Atom Z530 processor in it. The only shame was the use of GMA500. I had the pre-unity Ubuntu Netbook remix for a long time on it...

    your life mirrors mine... long ago at a previous job I had a windows desktop and the hard drive failed. Part of my job was administering unix and linux servers, and a colleague used linux as his...

    I don't think it's that. I could see the edit button for the comment you replied to, but now it's gone, and it's been a fair time; the previous comment is also uneditable too.

    Ah, if I click on...

    tee hee.

    I use Swype on my phone and I usually spot when it autocorrects things, and add common technical jargon to its dictionary. I missed it correcting ReactOS to reactors. I will go edit.

    On the one hand I think reactOS is a cool and clever idea
    On the other, if the time didn't developing it was costed at legal minimum working salary then they could probably have bought Windows...

    I've had to many bad experiences with AMD/ATI cards, both drivers and bundled apps, even with Windows, to ever buy one again.

    OK, a closed binary blob is a political fail for OSS, but at the end...

    what they need to do is a password which switches in a dummy near-empty file system which contains a bit of soft pr0n so as to give plausible deniability.

    some people may mock, but there are...

    It'd be a real shame if this was abandoned, it would be cool if you could run a full version of Lightroom or Photoshop on Linux just by way of example.

    These kinds of compatibility layers can be...

    I was being serious. When I troll, you know you've been trolled.

    oh dear, I've been trolled.

    shrug.

    but Fedora can have all the virtualisation stuff on it too, and then you're not living with an antique operating system as a "desktop".. I just fired up an RHEL7.0b1 virtual machine with near zero...

    unfortunately comments like this devalue phoronix's forums and useful commentary on the situation. if pro-linux people aren't mature about these issues, they will not be taken seriously by anyone.

    p.s. you can grab a copy here without having to go through a sales droid.

    someone else posted the link previously I think.

    sorry if I'm being dumb, but why do you need a GUI on a server? I guess it's handy for managing virtualised guests?

    I'd hope you don't need to.

    long ago I used port knocking, but once I found openVPN, I'd never go back.
