    Pathetic?

    Some of us don't need to have the highest performing chip on the planet. Some of us just want something better than we had, and don't want to break the bank doing it. Since AMD came...

    The second-to-last time I did a Gentoo install (on my just-wiped-clean Thinkpad), I did it from a Kubuntu livecd. The last time I did a Gentoo install, it was soon after I assembled my new tower and...

    Glad I wasn't the only one put off by that remark. When I read it, all I could think to myself was "huh, I didn't know they died. Especially since I installed it a mere three months back on one of...

    Maybe it was a little vague. What I was getting at is the following:

    1) regardless of the toolkit/libraries used, the Moblin UI is substantially different than Gnome. Even the "normal" Ubuntu...

    I don't know what, exactly, it is that you did with KDE 3.5, but as of 4.2 (to say nothing of 4.3) the vast majority of the functionality is back. Just because things are accomplished in a different...

    Yay! My overlay is finally out of limbo! (the kde-testing overlay has been looking for 4.3.0 tarballs since 4.3 was tagged, even though all the mirrors had 4.3.98)

    My brother and I just bought GeForce 9400GT's, and they work beautifully. The pragmatist in me forgives the closed-source blob on the grounds that I didn't have to fsck with it. The idealist in me...

    I was planning on going AMD when I went AM3 anyway (nevermind that they're practically the only game in town for that), but this is icing on the cake.

    @Zhick

    I saw that on the Gentoo wiki, but I also noticed I had to unmask Portage to use the split packages. That seemed a bit too adventurous for me. Maybe in another couple days I'll give it a...

    I wouldn't mind checking it out, if only to see what how it performs. Gstreamer (via Dragon Player [Phonon] and Elisa/Moovida) couldn't handle DVD playback on my AthlonXP 2600+. Maybe an "official"...
