    even if directx now runs on linux, openGL is still superior. the only advantage of X is it runs on (direct)xbox

    you really should do more then just ubuntu. not everyone likes that distro and you really should be more open minded when it comes to linux. fedora redhat funded has put tons and tons in to linux 2000% more then ubuntu has. I love you guys but you really should be more open minded whenit comes to linux.

    You should talk about your experiences with the Ubuntu “software centre store” on your blog, Bryan. I’d rather you hit slashdot ten days before release than some Linux hater on the day of release. Don’t worry about being unfair to Canonical in the timing: like you said: they should have published a press release about it a month ago.

  7. Mukitu Says:

    Man, you are both so right. Don’t get this store out in the wild until it’s ready! Especially since it’s Canonical. And one app is really sad.

    I’m really interested on your opinion of Arch. Even though I don’t want to infect your judgment but I have to say I hated it. I used it for almost a year and it didn’t get better. Once you set it up it was working quite slick but bigger updates (kernel, Xorg, drivers or KDE ) it totally kicked my machine and I had to work on it for the next three days to get it working again. Maybe I’m not born for Arch but from my point of few it totally sucks.
    The Idea is great. I also like the idea of AUR (even though it doesn’t always work) but after all I would never use it again. At least not on my main computer.

    Maybe you come to a different conclusion. That’s why I’m so excited.

    So if you have had an AMI server, would you call it MyAMI ?
