Re: How to rename 1000+ Word documents in Linux

But if you use Xfce, this is already included by default in Thunar(the file manager), simply select the files you want to rename right click select rename and you get lots of naming templates! Yeah really? And what do you rename the files to if you don't know what's inside and the only thing you ca...

You can get ZFS in various BSD-based distros too. If you want to build a pure storage solution that keeps your data safe, then maybe FreeNAS might be worth a look?

Re: How To: Partition your Hard Drive.

but when someone makes a good working ext4 or btfrs driver for Windows then I'll keep everything on the Linux partitions. You could put your files on a NAS with a set of mirrored disks? If one fails, you still have the other disks. And those home NAS solutions one can buy or build one-self these da...

Re: Oracle Frees OpenOffice

I see Google and Apple as far worse than Microsoft too, like Oracle... :wink: In that case you'd probably even be right, these two are bad. I don't like Google too much because in my eyes they have effectively created a fork of Linux: Android. Nothing against Android phones and that phone OS per se...

a reaction to Oracle buying Sun. An idiocy, after all. I agree with the first part, I strongly disagree with the second part. Oracle is evil evil evil :evil: ... please get that into your head. They're far worse then e.g. Microsoft. Having Oracle in charge of things such as OpenOffice??? Reeeaaaall...

Re: How To: Partition your Hard Drive.

There is an hidden danger in partitioning the hard drive as a lot of space can be "lost for use" due to bad partitioning. In this time and age it is possible to resize the partitions if needed. The current partitioning scheme on my main desktop: Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on /dev/sda5 ...

Yes, even KDE 4 is not a so great change after KDE 3... I understand what you mean ... the first KDE 4.x releases were a joke, yes. You move your mouse a little and ...POOOOOF!!!! ... the GUI crashes. But the current KDE 4.6.2 is stable, I've played a lot with it and I really like it. Just Kubuntu'...

At least in Windows 7 Enterprise the "Classic Theme" is still in there. I don't know about the other releases of Windows 7 though ... I only know the Enterprise version for obvious reasons.
