    In 12.10 they shipped Gnome 3.4 so the base level of other packages needed to be compatible with that Gnome version even though 3.6 was the current Gnome version. I did of course get Gnome via PPAs....

    I'm very much looking forward to Gnome 3.8. I've stuck with fallback mode not because of crappy graphics hardware but because I have two large monitors and lots of the same app open. Taskbars are...

    There was a talk on the whole topic at LCA recently - see the video at http://mirror.linux.org.au/linux.conf.au/2013/ogv/The_real_story_behind_Wayland_and_X.ogv

    Go to the front page - archlinux.org and look at the documentation section on the right. How is anyone supposed to deduce that the Official Installation Guide is the wrong thing to use in preference...

    Note that Canonical's Contributor License Agreement strongly discourages code collaboration. Requiring copyright assignment is pretty rare, and even rarer still when the assignee can take the code...

    I agree which is why I didn't disable it. I was doing this work quite a few years ago. I think back then nothing was logged if there was an SElinux violation which is what made life so much harder....
  7. I didn't, but browsing through doesn't seem to...

    I didn't, but browsing through doesn't seem to show that many packages. It looks like Debian (and hence Ubuntu) has about double the number of packages as standard. Ubuntu's PPAs fill in any...

    It has been a while since I tried Fedora, but the general vibes I get are very short support cycles and that if you have a problem and Google it you will be less likely to find an answer than if you...

    (I do agree with your sentiment - gratuitous differences, not being a member of the community, NIH, CLA etc really are making Ubuntu undesirable.)

    Out of curiosity what distributions do you push...

    I actually appreciate that. I don't really need a choice of 17 system monitors - I just need one that works well. The same principle applies across the whole desktop - pick things and pick them...

    A "slow" drive can still saturate the interface. The drives all have caches on them so data can come from cache really fast. Additionally they can provide a fairly high sequential throughput. Also...

    Do you have a pointer to that? From the mailing list a few issues crop up now and then, but nothing appears particularly popular or serious. (And other filesystems have bugs too.)

    There seems to be a belief that secureboot has no value to Linux users (I'm not saying you share that). However it does have value and I wish I could use it everywhere. You could then be reassured...
  14. Dungeon Defenders

    Sadly Dungeon Defenders doesn't work for me - has a segmentation fault compiling shaders at startup.

    I wish the Humble folks would also hold the Linux ports to higher standards. For example many...

    Sadly it is barely functional. You cannot change the order of items. It also does not bring windows to the front if you do a drag over their button.

    One peeve I have with enlightenment is how...

    Thanks for the tip. Of course I use both the pager and the keyboard so this is a serious problem. (Gnome 3 randomly has it broken too although I suspect Ubuntu is partly responsible.)

    I have been experimenting with E17 (using PPA on Linux) but it is rather strange. There an inordinate amount of configuration settings all over the place. I use multiple monitors, but when changing...

    Other reasons

    My graphics card is just fine for all the 3d wizz bang. I currently use fallback mode with the gnome 3 window manager (mutter).

    I'd love to use gnome shell (and did for a while), but it is...

    Removing read or similar permissions won't make much difference. Files will already be cached based on how long ago they were modified, and it will have no effect on machines that have already...

    Humble Bundles

    I hope they have as good a coverage of the Humble Bundles as they do on Windows. It is currently a rather large pain dealing with the titles, especially for folks who have bought most of them!
