Re: When is Elyssa Kde coming out?

Well since the release out currently is beta, expect to wait until at least the full 'stable' version is out, and then possibly a t more, since its a community edition, not the standard linux mint release (which uses gnome). Thisquestion might be better asked on the kde edition community support are...

What do you folks make of THAT? (Since I know a few of you have some Stallman esque leanings--(see people bashing gnome because of .net compliance in the form of mono)

Virtualbox installs

when I install a distro in virtualbox (in this case, debian sid), does it recognise all the hardware that I have on my pc at the moment (in terms of graphics cards and processors)? I ask, because I thought it might be quite handy if I installed partition image, and after an install I could just rest...

Re: Knoppix Install...

just to clarify then, sidux is essentially debian sid, but with a live cd install, and so no matter what the install date, I would effectively have an up to date system (like arch linux or similar). DO you think it would be possible to edit sid like I would be able to edit knoppix? Sidux looks very ...

Re: Favorite compiz feature?

I personally like desktop wall smooth transition between workspaces, since I have a 1240x1028 desktop, and it gets filled pretty quickly. I also have expo enable, so I can see whats happening on what desktop at any one time. I also like the window previews and writing in fire on desktop. Just to nan...

Re: HOW DO YOU SAY LINUX?

Best way to say it?
Probably I'd use
-stability
-free
-easy (but NOT for copmlete newbs...YET!)
-free

:D

also, the correct pronunciation of linux is "lin-ucks" (thats how linux says it so I'd presume thats how it's meant to be said)

Re: Firefox Crashes Randomly

OK, it would help when you make requests like this to post up the output from the program when you run it from terminal. In this instance, open up the terminal and type 'firefox'. This will start firefox, and when it crashes, there will be some sort of message on the terminal where you typed the com...

Re: Any other distros to recommend?

nearly all distros are based on ubuntu Not technically true. Ubuntu has shot forward people's perceptions linux, it's not just a geeky toy now (as debian, slackware and Gentoo are, as well as Redhat/Fedora, which are the 4 roots of all distros today, since ubuntu is debian based) and it doesnt have...
