What an excellent page informing about what one will face if he decides to migrate to Linux from Windows.
I installed as service (the recommended way) and it works.
I had to edit permissions so I could WRITE to httpd.conf file (and fill in the admin mail)
One of the best videos that came lately from Channel 9
I’ve visited many times http://www.microsoft.com/windowsvista/
The site just rocks (great design and colors in general, and amazing human touching text). I was reading Perfomance when I ran into:
Although too many carbohydrates might slow you down after lunch, your computer slows down for different reasons.
After Blue Screen of Death in Windows 98, now we have this cool new feature (and it actually works) called Voice Recognition. Watch it yourself if you don’t believe me. It is amazing.
Or as a Windows Setup would say: “Sit back and relax. Windows just got better.” instead of saying: “Please don’t read what I have to say, afterall you’re gonna format and reinstall so many times, you’ll have the chance to read it the second or the third or the n-th time”
Just tried Gaim2 beta3. Apart from the fact that I had to use GTK2.6 (GTK2.8 bug in GIOChannel) I was happy to see they *somehow* cleaned up the UI. IMO Chat window stills looks like 1998, and the avatar of the person you talk to, in the top left really sucks as design.
But the good stuff are stuff like mouse over activity in gtktextview for links (aka. hover), smooth scrolling and better organized places for settings and plugins and plugin settings. Also account management, signing in etc seem 2006 instead of 1998 (Gaim1.5)
I hope GTK 2.8 stuff is fixed soon on GTK, so they can take advantage of GTK 2.8 only stuff (like the urgency hint, which you can enable via the GaimWindows Only Plugin only for Windows..). In fact even GTK 2.10 when is out, would provide so much more out of the box (f.e. trayicon [with let's hope] popdown of menu automatically on "focus-out").
Iif you are a Gaim1.5 user, go 2beta3.
PS. one idea I liked but is done P O O R E L Y in terms of good looking UI, is the connection error as button. At least I hope in GNOME that looks better, though I doubt it would look more nicer. F.e. this should be done as sticky ballon type tooltip on the trayicon. OTOH, I'm not sure if ever in Linux we could see such a tooltip (without the need of notification-daemon) [or at least, a happy trayicon API to add such "user must see, and can click for more info" tooltips"]
Windows won't do larger than 32GB fat32 anymore!! It seems the only way to do a FAT32 without a Linux LiveCD is via Acronis Disk Director Server program.
I bet they just forgot to mention those new features in the great experience heading.
UPDATE: I don't know how but I suddenly thought, of CMD (after reading that SETUP wouldn't do it). I created the partitions without formatting them and assigned driver letters to each raw partition. So I did format H: /FS:FAT32 /Q and in the end saw it wasn't supported! LOL LOL LOL. Then I found out about this GPL tool, which did the job in less than 2 seconds.
