  1. Re: What Linux distro do you prefer and why?

    Arch is nice. I ran it on one of my desktops for about 3 years. Took me a while to get everything set up the way I liked it but it was fairly nice once I did.

  2. Re: What Linux distro do you prefer and why?

    I use to be a big Ubuntu fan but for the past few years they have just been making lots of weird decisions I can't get on board with.

    I've decided to bed down with openSUSE these days. I'm a big...

    Re: Steam Linux

    HP's printers run great on Linux. Actually probably better than they do on Windows. HP officially supports Linux with a program called HPLIP (HP Linux Image Printing I think it stands for).

    I finally got around to trying it once it was officially released. I'll probably be more interested in it once more games get ported over to Linux. I did pick up Crusader kings 2 though. I'm...

    Re: replace crome os ?

    Re: The GNOME Situation.

    Re: The GNOME Situation.

    It's been a while and I've kept playing with different DEs.

    I still can't stand Gnome 3. It works fine for some people. But not for me.

    I am looking forward to the release of Mint 12. Mint is one of my favorite distributions, probably number two right behind OpenSUSE.

    Re: The GNOME Situation.

    I've not actually tried the fallback mode. I've heard mixed reviews of it. I've mainly tried Gnome 3 via a Fedora live disk. I'm not sure if one can try fallback mode with it or not.

    Re: The GNOME Situation.

    I'll have to play around with that later this week when I get back home, I'm on the road for business now.
