GNOME 3 released, ushers in an interesting amalgam of iOS and OS X (Download Squad)

Apr 7th 2011 6:48PM This is why I love my rolling release Arch. Loving GNOME3.

ChromeLite: experience the ASCII Web of yesteryear (Download Squad)

Apr 4th 2011 5:06PM I don't think it is any faster, and I know it is not nearly as fast as elinks, which is my browser of choice. I only use chrome when I need to use Java.

Classic Shell now makes Internet Explorer 9 look like IE8 (Download Squad)

Apr 4th 2011 5:01PM I love this, I've used it for about a year now. I have my Windows 7 look exactly like Windows 2K does out of the box. I switched all the logos, the wallpaper, the icons, everything about the OS is exactly like 2000.

From Windows 1 to Windows 7, and everything in between, in just 10 minutes (video) (Download Squad)

Mar 3rd 2011 5:47PM I'm still trying to force myself into believing that XP, Vista, and 7 didn't come out. I have an 2010 computer with Windows 2000 installed.

'Apple just f***** over online music subs for the iPhone' -- Last.fm co-founder on Apple's 30% cut (Download Squad)

Feb 17th 2011 5:42PM Apple's products are the best in the industry: easy to use, elegant, beautiful, etc. The only thing holding them back is their policies: 30% cut, no jail-breaking, rejecting every app they can, etc.

Ask DLS: What's your primary Web browser? (Download Squad)

Feb 16th 2011 4:46PM I actually use elinks. It's nongraphical: no pictures, no GUI. All black and green. And I bet you it could load faster than any of the browsers listed in the survey.

Z-Type is a fun way to learn to touch type (Download Squad)

Feb 12th 2011 5:51PM @Erez Zukerman I've known qwerty for 6, Dvorak for 2, and Colemak for 1 1/2. I prefer Dvorak for it's grouping of vowels, and the position of period, comma, and quotation marks.

I also use a TypeMatrix keyboard so cut, copy, paste buttons are right near where the xcv keys would be. It also has straightly aligned keys which I haven't decided if that helps typing, but it's great for occasionally playing Half-Life, or Portal.

Feb 12th 2011 4:37PM Erez, you should have anchored that Wikipedia article at Dvorak so you could see the Dvorak and Colemak layout. I can touch type QWERTY, Colemak, and Dvorak. I think that Dvorak is definetly the superior.

Internet Archive Wayback Machine introduces new beta version with calendar view (Download Squad)

Jan 23rd 2011 11:41AM I used this to look at the old Download squad. Before switched engulfed it and what-not. I miss it. By the way the beta website has the coolest error page I've ever seen.
