Being that the Gutsy beta was released yesterday, I decided to download the beta and test it out. I like that the windows aren’t as thin as before and are regular again. Apparently popular demand caused the “Elephant” wallpaper to appear in the beta. I like it better over the default “Simple Ubuntu.” Go to the testing page, select the beta, and download!
Yes. I have done it again: an OS in Flash. Now not only can you move around the window, you can open up the start menu!
This isn’t really a review, just a quick blurb. Rawhide’s coming along, so I decided to test it out. In my opinion, Fedora 8 is a step back from Moonshine (Fedora 7). There used to be folders in home saying “Documents,” “Pictures,” etc. Now there’s just a Desktop folder. No more OpenOffice.org either. Just GNOME office. I hope it’s just during the test releases. Anyway, I like the new Nodoka theme.
Ok, this is only a dumb little ActionScript flash thingy, but you can move the little IE window in this little Windows XP written in Flash I made today.
I’ve tried various programming languages and have had fun with all of them: QBASIC, Python, Visual Basic-like languages, C, C++, and a tad bit of Objective-C. Now, I’m going to try Java. I’m going with Java for several reasons: it’s cross-platform, object-oriented, and is also web-based. I’m trying it out with the NetBeans IDE and am following these tutorials. I suggest you also try it out. Enjoy!
- So they go try to use a live CD and end up burning the ISO file to the CD instead of the image itself and gives up.
- The person is finally able to boot from the live CD and is playing around with Ubuntu. In his opinion, it’s better than the old OS he had on his machine, but still wants to keep the old one for work reasons. Everything in the installer is going fine, but he has no idea what the partitioning is, so he accidentally wipes his entire HD.
