Yes, me too. But I find the fact that so far them shipping the binary Nvidia drivers on their ISO managed to remain undisturbed and unnoticed by Greg and others quite interesting :D

The grey area is not so grey for Kororaa since they removed the drivers from their live cd. Ever heard about Sabayon Linux ? Give it a try, it's very nice, and also a very nice way to get a Gentoo installation without all that typing and manually editing. ... And yes, they ship with all the binary ...

I always thought the Swiss flag was like the Swiss chocolate. Really nice but not big enough :) You know the difference between the Swiss flag and Swiss chocolate? You can eat both until you get sick, but the flag won't make you fat :lol: Talking of the Swiss flag ... there are some really stupid T...

You can also install the codecs,etc with similar fashion but that is not the point of Mint. I think Clem wants a button or menu option that is in the line of "Setup 3D" so it is a one-stop click option. Aaaah ... cool 8) You don't even have to go to apt-get as it is found in Synaptics for both nvid...

Most licenses are very confusing and written in legal-speak. I find the language of the GPL very clear. Especially since it's available in many other languages too. The only effort it takes is to to actually read the darn thing and not post stuff about things one didn't even care to read. Tenshu un...

Tenshu made this allegation because he thinks, for some obscure reason, that the GPL forbids a distribution to include proprietary packages and GPL ones on the same CD. It is not clear to me what Tenshu exactly thinks or based this allegation on... and it is not clear either if Tenshu ever read the...

Respecting the law isn't a choice it is a duty Whose law? Yours? And no, you are wrong: What is one's "duty" and what isn't ultimately is a choice too. :D If good or bad is another question and mostly depends on the question if you got caught or not and if yes, by whom? :lol: I were comprehensive i...

Scorp 123, What I would do the next time you do a full install is manually partition your HD. I am a Linux user since 1996. Trust me, I know my way around :D It's just that I'd have preferred to do a simple dist-upgrade instead of reinstalling everything. So, right now I am going to stick with Barb...

dist-upgrade possible?

Would it be possible to apt-get dist-upgrade to Bea from Barbara? Can anyone from the dev team give us some clues to that please?
