Re: What's the deal?

Very well said! I completely agree with you!

The adamm's custom kernel is the fastest one, so you should try it out as I'm sure you won't experience the problems I had (Wireless home network not being recognized).

The default Kubuntu/Ubuntu kernel is quite fast too though, I've had no problems using it this far.
Even KDE boots up fairly fast. (Note that KDE 3 boots faster than KDE 4 on hte Eee 900 at least).

I have Ubuntu Eee 8.04 installed on my Eee, without the adamm's kernel as it didn't recognize my wireless network at home. I don't know what went wrong for me, but I did however notice the faster boot times and other quite signigicant improvements!

Your are indeed right about Songbird, I love it, it's my favorite audio player. But what I mean by saying that I "need" iTunes is that I have to have access to the iTunes store, not only to download music but also artwork. Now I know you'll recommend gtkpod, but I've actually tried that as well, and with that being an OK solution, it's far from perfect. It's really not very efficient having to add album cover for each and every song, as opposed to iTunes' solution where it fetches everything automatically, and yes I also know this can be done in Songbird, but then again, I woldn't be able to transfer pictures or videos to my iPod, I'd need iTunes for that.

Goddamn you Apple and your fascist point of view, haha!

I really don't understand why Steve Jobs is so ANTI-Linux... I mean they make iTunes for Windows and not Linux, come on, that's just not right!

Hey no worries, until Linux becomes able to do EVERYTHING the Windows can, I'm sure many people either dual-boot XP and Linux, or have another HDD with XP installed, 'cos as you said, there's not that many games that will run well under Wine as of yet, but who knows? :p

Re: Re: Re: Linux is Linux...

Well then that statement was somewhat nonsense... or at least incomplete.
But if the GNOME programmers chose to ignore their users' thoughts and tips, I think the fair thing to do would be to call the programmers for idiots, not its users.

(Just FYI though, I'm not calling anybody an idiot, I love both GNOME, KDE and whatever).

I agree that GNOME is easy to use, and that's great, but I cannot say the same about doing more complex stuff, I've done quite a lot with my laptop since I installed Linux on it, and I've had no problems using GNOME for anything.
With KDE I still manage to do stuff, but then again it takes more time (for me) because I'm so used to GNOME.
But as long as I can manage to do what I want with my computer using GNOME, I wouldn't call myself an idiot. (Nor anybody else).

So like I said, each is own.
I like all DE's ecause they all have their ups and downs.

And I totally agree on the flamewars issue, they're as dumb as the people starting them!

Re: Linux is Linux...

Well said! You just said everything I'm for, haha.

It's not the fact that Linus prefers KDE that bugs me, but if he called GNOME users for "idiots" (I don't even know whether that's true or not, is it, TheRob?) then that's what bothers me. Because I don't have anything against KDE, Xfce or any other DE, I'm just happy being a Linux user, and I couldn't be more thankful to Linus for creating the kernel!

I really can't picture myself Linus calling Linux users who use GNOME for idiots, so I hope and believe that that statement is nonsense.

I use GNOME because that's what I first used when installing Linux on my machine so I've gotten used to it.

I'm against Microsoft and Windows, so I'm sad to report that I need Windows XP through VirtualBox to manage my iPod with iTunes, I tried installing iTunes in Wine but I had no luck getting the iPod to sync with it. I'd like to be completely independent from Microsoft, but as long as Apple stays stubborn and refuse to release iTunes for Linux, I'm stuck with XP through VB.
