  1. Anyone using Fedora 16? I'm loving it. I have been on Ubuntu for years (grew up on old school Red Hat and Slackware) and made the switch over the F16 a bit ago. It's everything Ubuntu USED to be and then some.

    Been using Sabayon Linux and PCBSD w/ XFCE here. Tried the alpha for Fedora 17 recently but thought BTRFS was going to be standard so waiting till 18 to try it again.
  5. I have never tried Sabayon. I did play around with Mint recently for my girls netbook

    Hahaha!! You got that right!

    When was your first server crash, and how did you recover?
  10. Ugh lets not even talk about data loss. Sore subject lol

    Fedora is nice, but I still prefer Kubuntu. I'm a KDE kinda guy. Fedora says you can run KDE, but it still looks like Gnome, so I don't like it for a desktop. I do like it for a server, but my only present server is a Mac.

    I really miss my SuSE. Novell has done nice things with it since they bought it, but I miss how well it worked and how nicely it all came together. I still have a few customers that are using a SuSE client/server setup I did back in the day.

  13. No I mean future, the awareness of Linux and the number of users has been steadily increasing for years now.

    KDE is ok, but I'm a Gnome guy. Gnome3 has taken some adjustment.

    In my case, too much. I know it's a powerful interface, but I just don't care for it.
  15. The big differences for me:

    Ctrl + Del to delete. I'm not an idiot, i don't need safety features. If i did i would use windows. As sheldon from big bang theory says "Windows 7 is more user friendly than Vista......I don't like that."

    No "System" up by App and Places
  16. Question for my fellow nerds

    I have a netbook that we no longer use running on Ubuntu. It is an asus eee....something. Anyway is it possible to use this to extend the range of a connection? I want to log it onto my home network in the basement and then broadcast a signal for my other laptop to grab onto.

    I cannot plug it in via cable because my routers ethernet ports dont work. I'm too cheap to replace it.

    I have an older version of Ubuntu on my HP laptop. I have never used any other distro except the pendrive version so I could take it with me wherever I went. I will have to check out Fedora. I have a Mac, and I use Ubuntu on my HP. Only when completely necessary do I use Windows haha. The reason I have not used any other distro is because it took countless hours getting my wireless card to work on Ubuntu haha. I guess I'm just being lazy.
  19. Broadcoms and kernel upgrades never mix. upgrading to 3.3 knocked mine out for a bit.
