Flipping the Linux switch: Text editors for new users (Download Squad)

Jan 15th 2008 2:43AM Kate rules. GEdit is #2. Cream is a dressed up Vim. And Vim and Emacs are for uber-nerds.

Lastly, for quick editing of config files, I vote for Nano.

I shouldn't have to read a book just to figure out how to use a text editor.

Obama most popular with tech savvy voters (Download Squad)

Jan 15th 2008 2:35AM I don't get why so many on teh Internets are so gaga for Ron Paul. I've not been impressed myself.

I'm 47 and quite tech savvy and I'm for Barack Obama.

Please God, let us get a Democrat back in the White House!

Jan 4th 2008 8:18PM I'm a fan of OpenSource. That's reason #1 for me.

#2. Extensions. You can duplicate the built-in features of Opera and go well beyond that.

Yes it's slower (especially with extensions) but I put up with it.

Jan 4th 2008 8:15PM There are security issues with that version. That's one reason not to use it. If you want to stick with "lightweight" I'd recommend Foxit reader.

Jan 4th 2008 8:11PM I abandoned Outlook years ago. I tried out the 2007 version only to find it more bloated than ever.

And frankly Thuderbird has a number of features I find important that Outlook has always beeen lacking.

Not to mention there is NO comparison between Outlook's and Thunderbird's spam filters.

Thunderbird's is top-notch. Outlook's is quite the opposite.

Jan 4th 2008 8:09PM I agreed with you re Adobe reader till version 8. I've found it runs much faster than 7 (My PC has an Athlon 64 3500 CPU and 2GB of RAM).

Foxit reader may be nice, but there are actually some nice features in Adobe Reader 8 that don't exist in Foxit.

And the latest version of RealPlayer is a VAST improvement over the previous crap.

From a user standpoint, IE 7 is vastly superiour to 6, but my biggest complaint is that you still get more features in Firefox (thanks to extensions) or Opera.

Frankly the best "feature" in IE 7 is that its GUI looks great in Windows Vista. The other guys "suck" by comparison.


Which Windows Vista will you run? You have 8 choices. (Engadget)

Jan 23rd 2007 8:14PM They did. Windows Vista Ultimate. Take Windows Vista Business add Windows Vista Home Premium and a few extras and Voila!
