Ubuntu alpha hits a snag (Download Squad)

Sep 29th 2008 3:37AM I'm not going to blame you because you don't seem to be a software developer but you are a journalist and I believe it's your responsibility to research things beforehand. In my opinion this is pure stupidity as Ubuntu releases an aplha so bugs can be found, they give you a disclaimer saying they don't care if you install the aplha and it fries your machine or it makes your computer try to kill you. They give you their thanks in return though. That's the way it goes.

I suggest you don't blame Ubuntu for their response because that's asinine. You can by all means WARN people about it though. This is akin to making an article on how the user switcher applet kept on crashing for me in Ubuntu Aplha 6 and it's Ubuntu's fault for not pulling that pesky network manager from the aplha and saying sorry to every Tom, Dick, and Harry because they didn't like it. I'm just giving you friendly advise even though I'm just a random person on the internet so you can do as you please with the little knowledge I have that I've given you.

The Ubuntu developers may not seem to care but I know that as a developer it's irritating when I have someone complaining about something in an aplha instead of just filing a bug report and leaving me to my work. No matter what you do with this text you read though I hope you have a nice day.

Flipping the Linux switch: Xfce, the hidden gem of desktop environments (Download Squad)

Apr 28th 2008 7:26PM I installed and am running Xubuntu on my old computer that became too old to run WinXP. It's very nice, just as good as Ubuntu but should really be used by those who have systems that don't have many resources.

Credit card sized MP3 player ups your street cred (Engadget)

Sep 25th 2007 7:06PM I agree ssuk 2GB and is as small as a credit card, I think we've just found some bleeding edge technology unless i'm just so behind times that this was available a long time ago but i was too busy under my rock.
