  1. This is probably out of left field given I haven't posted here in a while, and this forum is not as active as it was back in the day, but for anyone who is still around: Any of the old heads around here will likely remember that I was a fan of Arch Linux when it first started. However, I've watched the Arch community over the past few years and it's turned into a bunch of unhelpful pricks, with standard "RTFM" replies. As such, I can no longer recommend it. I've watched time and time again as people ask rather simple questions, stating they tried to figure it out on their own and couldn't understand what they need to do, only to be linked to the same wiki page they already read and didn't comprehend. This is the antithesis of what we need in the Linux world today, which is a more helpful community willing to walk people through the steps they need to take. Much like the attitude we've had on these forums. If you, or anyone you know, is looking for a new distro, I recommend steering clear of Arch. There are better options with more helpful communities. Support distros that support their users. Can a mod or admin move this to Everything Linux? I accidentally posted to the wrong forum. Thanks!
  2. I love how the updates over here are all new users asking questions and old users making random comments.

      we still haunt the place :)

  3. I have this running on my Netgear WNR3500L, my only wish is that it be easier to setup a USB drive to share on the network via SAMBA. Other than that, it's much better than the stock firmware.

    A warped sense of humour is required to get most of my jokes :D

    My comment wasn't directed at you and/or Ix, it was just a joke that popped into my head as I was reading through the thread.

    The love in this thread is palpable. It has the texture corduroy jeans.
  7. The Linux sound system is a complete mess. It's not just PulseAudio. Perhaps a petition to simplify and generally fix the state of sound in Linux would be better, and more widely supported. Especially amongst audiophiles.
  8. If it's just echo, that's somewhat typical. You want to watch out for actual feedback (where you get the lovely high-pitched sound) as that can be a problem, not just a minor annoyance. Also...isn't this in the wrong section? Ian? :unsure:
  9. Because making you go through a few pages increases the chance they'll make some ad revenue off your visit. Though, when I clicked the link I was taken directly to the Vote page...*shrug*.
  10. I'm stuck in a box, help!

  11. You are right, but that's sort of the problem. Because they patented the GUI end, which then calls the underlying code, they could potentially use the patent against others who have a similar GUI device - think gksudo or ksudo or whatever they're called, the GUI front-ends to sudo for GNOME and KDE. Although the underlying code is likely different, what the viewer sees is arguably similar.
  12. Widescreen may take away some vertical space but it adds a good bit horizontally. Scrolling vertically is common anyways, even on 4:3 monitors - however, more horizontal space gives more room to run several applications side-by-side (and horizontal scrolling is less natural). That is why I personally prefer widescreen - I've never missed the extra vertical pixels, even when working with images or writing code. As far as the topic...I find the Thinkpads to be pretty nice, as long as you don't buy one of the really cheap models. They're a bit flimsy.
  13. I think a vessel in my brain just popped...*twitch*
  14. Don't need one over here...but thanks for the offer.
  15. The discussion regarding using the term "America" to mean "The United States of America" has been done to death. Get over it. As long as you know what it's referring to, who cares? And obviously all of you do, otherwise you wouldn't have said anything.
