  1. For the first time ever, Microsoft will distribute its own version of Linux For you linux users. Hold your nose to stop the stench and read here http://www.businessinsider.com/microsoft-azure-sphere-is-powered-by-linux-2018-4 First they laugh at you. Then they call you names and lie about you. Then they try to be like you. Seeing that Microsoft has been humbled by the Justice Dept and EU. In case you are wondering who Stephenen Walli is. Current project manager at microsoft citation link https://www.crunchbase.com/person/stephen-walli#section-overview It is not your old microsoft corp. anymore , fan boys.
  2. Usually with usb 3 ports and hdmi. You cannot find a low cost deal like this. If you want to learn Linux and have a spare keyboard, mouse, and monitor. For the cost of a raspberry pi. But with intel cpu. Which will run Windows if you know how to install it with a external dvdrw drive or usb or sd card. Anyways. I'd thought I'd share. https://www.ebay.com/itm/LIVA-Mini-PC-Computer-Intel-Dual-1-58Ghz-N2807-2GB-64GB-eMMC-WIFI-kodi/332580074811?hash=item4d6f51353b:g:c50AAOSw0BNajvV~ It has built in wifi, bluetooth also. Might make a good gift to a grandkid even. Or son or daughter. I have no affiliation with this product or seller. I just thought it is a killer deal.

    Translation. No popup window apps working yet. Sounds like apple command line tools are the only thing working so far. From here: https://www.darlinghq.org/faq/ and https://www.darlinghq.org/
  5. That little round grey circle in the r/h corner is my new moonphase icon The above is it's control center. I grabbed it from here https://sourceforge.net/projects/moonphase/ In Antix. Ubuntu, Mint . You can use Gdebi and open the download where you downloaded it to and let it install it that way. Or command line is for more savvy users is cd into the directory the download is sitting in sudo dpkg -i moonphase<rest of name goes here so use the tab key for auto complete of the name> After done installing. You need to make it start up when you boot up. In Desktop Enviroments like XFCE, KDE, MATE, etc............. Look for Session>Startup and hit the application tab in the tool bar. Under Add a new startup. Edit. Command is /usr/bin/moonphase-qt For Window managers like I am posting from right now. ICEWM, FLUXBOX, JWM, etc......... My ~/.icewm/startup file new entry on line 7 is sleep 3 && moonphase-qt & My ~/.jwm/startup file new entry on line 8 is <moonphase-qt &> lastly, my ~/.fluxbox/startup file new entry on line 32 is moonphase-qt & Happy Trails, Rok
  6. You will need curl installed in your linux distro of choice. example in mine $ apt-cache policy curl curl: Installed: 7.38.0-4+deb8u4 Candidate: 7.38.0-4+deb8u4 Version table: *** 7.38.0-4+deb8u4 0 500 http://ftp.gr.debian.org/debian/ jessie/main i386 Packages 500 http://security.debian.org/ jessie/updates/main i386 Packages 100 /var/lib/dpkg/status I got this idea from here by the way https://twitter.com/igor_chubin and here http://www.jointux.com/get-weather-condition-and-moon-phase-in-console-using-wttr/ My commands 1st the weather in my zipcode. Change ending zip code number to match yours. City names work also . First zip code curl wttr.in/79972 Now city curl wttr.in/pecos For moon readout in the USA in terminal do curl wttr.in/moon + usa Not sure for Australia but you can experiment like using aus or what ever. Same for EU or Great Britain. Like I said. I don't know. Oh. for a weather and the moon readout all at once on my box curl wttr.in/79772 && curl wttr.in/moon + usa I include these commands in my hidden .bashrc text file in /home/harry on the very very very end of the file and save it. When I open a terminal. It automatically displays. Happy trails rok
  7. Image credit: Swapnil Bhartiya Do you have an HDMI-enabled dumb TV sitting around that needs a dedicated set-top box or game console to be used? Are you planning to buy a new smart TV? Stop. Here is a tutorial that will turn your current TV into a great Android Linux powered smart TV. At most, you have to spend $30 on it. What you need $29 Pine64 (2GB model) 32GB or 64GB micro SD card Ethernet cable (Bluetooth/Wifi module if you want to play games, or need wireless connectivity) A keyboard+mouse (I recommend getting a bluetooth keyboard with built in trackpad). There are many small keyboards available on Amazon.com that you can try. A 5v power adapter with micro USB (a cellphone charger will work) HDMI enabled TV Now download Android from the Pine64 official page. Make sure to download the version for the size of micro SD card that you’re using. Next, unzip the compressed file to extract .img image and use the dd command to write the image to the SD card: sudo dd if=/path_to_.img of=/path_to_sd_card bs=1M Once the card is ready, plug in the card, connect the HDMI cable to your TV, connect the Ethernet cable, and plug in the keyboard/base. Then, connect the power supply. If everything went well, you will see Pine64 boot screen on your TV, and then the familiar Android 5.x. Original article is here. https://www.linux.com/learn/turn-your-feature-tv-smart-tv-30
  8. Yeah, It is Ubuntu 14.04 Long term support till 2019. Chromixium 1.5 is the current stable version of Chromixium OS and is a Long Term Support release, supported until 2019: Based on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS Stable and secure - updates are applied seamlessly in the background to keep your system secure Includes Chromium Browser and Flash player Google Browser Choice tool allows you to upgrade to full version of Google Chrome Gmail, YouTube, Google Docs and Drive built in Comprehensive Control Panel allows for full customization Supports installation of Ubuntu Linux compatible software eg LibreOffice, Skype, Steam Full offline access to files and applications Supports a wide range of laptops, netbooks, desktops, Chromebooks, PC, Mac, Chromebooks... This release requires a fresh installation. If you are running Chromixium 1.0 32 bit and do not want to reinstall, please install Service Pack 1 which includes many of the above improvements. More service packs may be released in future. https://github.com/RichJack/Chromixium/releases/tag/v1.5-i386-amd64 Biker Linux interpretation from Rok. This Linux distro is made for 32 bit and 64 bit computers depending on which live iso you download. Minimum Requirements 512MB RAM (1GB recommended) for 32 bit; 2GB (3GB+ recommended) for 64 bit 1GHz PAE-enabled processor 8GB free hard disk space Ability to boot from DVD or USB For UEFI and Secure Boot systems, please use the x64 edition.. I always go by recommended specs. Not minimal because minimal leaves some room for error. Due to hardware straining to run the operating system. Kinda like running Vista on a 512MB XP machine. PAE enabled CPU means it won't run like on my IBM T23 Laptop. That Celeron which is a P3 1000 hz cpu has no pae support inside of the cpu. Not like on What I am posting now. code: $ cat /proc/cpuinfo <snip> flags : fpu vme de pse tsc msr pae mce cx8 apic sep mtrr pge mca cmov pat pse36 clflush dts acpi mmx fxsr sse sse2 ss ht tm pbe nx lm constant_tsc arch_perfmon pebs bts aperfmperf pni dtes64 monitor ds_cpl vmx smx est tm2 ssse3 cx16 xtpr pdcm lahf_lm dtherm tpr_shadow vnmi flexpriority code: I have not downloaded and tried it. I have too much going on as it is on computers and off line presently. So other than My Ubuntu knowledge. You are on your own on this one. I will say it looks pretty simple stupid to run and install for someone used to ChromeOS and Ubuntu. You get the best of both operating systems on a 32 bit computer. Pretty slick, If I say so myself.
  9. Lets say you are having a problem and wish to search the forum for previous answers to your problem. https://www.google.com/search?num=50&noj=1&q=windows+10+site%3Asmartestcomputing.us.com&oq=windows+10+site%3Asmartestcomputing.us.com&gs_l=serp.12...8871.15363.0.18294.14.14.0.0.0.0.333.1855.1j9j1j1.12.0.ecynfh...0...1.1.64.serp..14.0.0.qNdt2Q7ZIQE Just substitute Window 10 for lets say Mic, Apple, Linux, blue screen or Windows 7 or whatever your question is. It will save you a lot time and probably teach you something along the way. You can even bookmark this in your browser in a folder named "Search" if you wish.

    Windows 10 on a Stick

    Home Android Desktop/Server OS General Info Hardware Links Training/Courses Submit News/Contact Chinese firm introduces its X1 stick PC Webmaster - It runs on Linux July 23, 2015 Android, Hardware Shenzhen-based electronics firm Pipo introduces its X1 stick PC, which can run either Android, or Windows 10. PiPO X1 stick PC The X1 stick PC was first unveiled at Computex last month. The PC stick looks broadly similar to the ECS PCoS – Intel Compute Stick, which was introduced nearly 2 months ago. Intel built its Compute Stick as a reference for other manufacturers, because Intel believes in its new strategy regarding small computing as it was reported during the Intel Developers Forum in China last April. Other manufacturers, like the Taiwanese Quanta is also working on (prototypes) of a PC stick with the Intel reference platform; the Quanta NH6, as reported a few weeks ago. The PiPO X1 stick PC will use an Intel Atom Z3735F processor, together with 2GB RAM and 32GB storage. It also features a Micro SD card reader, a full sized USB port and an additional micro USB port. An HDMI connector is responsible for the video output. The price and release date aren’t known yet, but probably it will be available this autumn for less the price Intel will ask for its stick PC. Below you can see a video of the PiPO X1 stick (courtesy of Notebook Italia). Note by rok. Here is the url for the video link http://www.itrunsonlinux.com/hardware/chinese-firm-introduces-its-x1-stick-pc/
  11. Have you ever wondered how to turn a spare Desktop computer into a TV receiver like Direct TV or whatever and you don't have Windows or Mac but are using Linux. Most new LCD Tv's have a vga connector on the back or side of the TV like a CRT or LCD Monitor. Other connections are there also like hdmi and s-video. Me. I use the VGA plug. Applications I use in Linux to watch TV are. Miro TV XMBC Hulu Desktop Miro and XMBC should be in Ubuntu, Mint, most any Debian based Distro package manager like synaptic or software center and are just mouse click installs. Hulu is just a download and can be installed with gdebi which is just a mouse click or from command line as root in terminal on a Debian based Distro, Be sure to open terminal in the file/directory Hulu Desktop binary was downloaded to. sudo dpkg -i huludesktop(version you downloaded goes here) [/CODE] example for 64 bit deb package download. For 32 bit. Just substitute the package name that it says it is. [CODE] sudo dpkg -i huludesktop_amd64.deb A good Desktop video card or chip with proper Linux driver helps with playing on bigger tv's. Mine on this box is a old Graphics: Card: nVidia G71 [GeForce 7900 GS] [/code] But works ok on a 32" lcd TV we have. I have it hard wired to Ethernet instead of wireless because it is faster. I can set it up for wireless if I wish though. Just to also elaborate more a bit. My EEEPCs can handle this using Linux also. I have done this with a 22" LCD Computer monitor running wireless on the EEEPCs. They handled it just fine in AntiX. http://antix.freeforums.org/hulu-tv-in-fluxbox-t3475.html Netflix is not a option in Linux as it uses Silverlight and Moonlight does not appear to be a viable option for netflix at this time that I am posting this. Maybe later in the future. Who knows?

    Banana Pi vs. Raspberry Pi

    Banana Pi is a fork of Raspberry Pi project using different components while maintain compatibility as much as possible. The main SoC chip is different. Raspberry Pi has Broadcom ARM11 core chip while Banana Pi has Allwinner ARM Cortex-A7 dual cores. The ARM architecture is the major differences. Banana Pi has more features enabling by ARM v7 architecture and still be compatible to run applications on ARMv6. The physical dimension of Banana Pi is wider than Raspberry. Be aware ! Current box of Raspberry Pi is not big enough to fit Banana Pi. Banana Pi has more hardware components. For example, Banana Pi has on-board micphone, internal SATA connector, IR receiver, OTG connector, power and reset switch. These components are not available on Raspberry Pi. The connectors of LCD LVDS interface and Camera interface are different. Current Raspberry Pi camera module does NOT work with Banana Pi. In addition, Banana Pi may be able to connect external LVDS display but not Raspberry Pi since it never enable its DSI connector. In summary, Banana Pi currently has smaller community size, less documentation and it will need to tune OS distribution for Allwinner SoC and its add-on hardware components. http://www.bananapi.org/2014/05/is-banana-pi-clone-of-raspberry-pi.html The banana pi people have said that they are sold out of boards, but, that they have put in a large order of boards from a factory. I guess they want to compete head to head with the Raspberry pi foundation. They have Allwinner backing them so they should be taken seriously. They are claiming on their site that they will have a target price of $29.99 + taxes + shipping costs I for one will wait and see. Just because it is on the Internet does not mean it is true.
  13. WOOLWORTHS will begin rolling out 8000 Google Chrome OS devices to replace Microsoft Windows desktop computers — believed to be the largest such deployment in the world. The move is the next chapter in the supermarket giant’s “Going Google” story and follows its 2013 landmark decision to go wall-to-wall Google, replacing Microsoft email, applications and PC operating systems that have been in use for decades. “(We’re) about to roll out 8000 Chrome OS devices starting in the second half of the year,” Woolworths program director Deon Ludick told The Australian. “(It’s to) replace a large part of our PC desktop fleet with Chrome OS.” He said Woolworths would rely on a number of providers for the Chrome OS devices. The company is expected to reveal more details in the coming weeks. Gartner research director Gunnar Berger said Chrome OS was a relatively new concept being adopted in a handful of organisations, primarily in the education sector. Mr Berger said using Chrome OS was a “radically different ­approach” aimed at minimising the use of Windows and relying on the Chrome browser for the ­majority of the workload. “Organisations that have moved to more web-based applications may find this approach very attractive,” he said. Mr Berger said one of the biggest advantages to this approach was that Chrome OS was extremely secure — Google has an ongoing competition that pays large rewards to anyone able to hack the device via the browser. And if an organisation such as Woolworths has a Google Apps domain, the Chrome OS device can be easily managed via a web console which requires no software installation. “It’s a compelling solution for an organisation that may be aggressively moving off of Windows,” Mr Berger said. The nascent Chrome OS market is fast gaining traction, with eight out of the world’s top 10 original equipment manufacturers, including Asus and Samsung, dishing out Chrome OS devices. Examples of these include the Chromebox, a computer that runs on the Chrome OS operating system, and Chromebook laptops. Gartner analysts Isabelle Durand and Bruno Lakehal said the Chromebook segment was the fastest-growing part of the mobile PC market last year, mainly in North America and in some emerging and mature Asia-Pacific countries such as Malaysia and Australia. Ovum enterprise IT principal analyst Richard Edwards said ­operating systems per se were ­irrelevant to most users but what mattered was the user interface, the applications that were available on the platform, and the level of compatibility with peripherals, such as printers, scanners and Blue­tooth devices. Mr Edwards said enterprise IT departments had generally “locked-down the Windows desktop and have adopted a browser delivery mechanism for enterprise applications; so, were it not for Microsoft Office and a few specialist line-of-business apps on PC hard drive, Google Chrome OS would indeed be a serious threat to Windows (and OS X) in the enterprise”. He said that adopting Google Apps and using it purely for email changed very little from the end user’s point of view — it was primarily a cost saving/service improvement exercise for the IT department. However, “going Google” or switching from a Microsoft-centric tool set to a Google one was a “big deal” for the organisations that go down that route. “The tools we use have a huge impact on the way we go about getting work done. For some ­companies, the cost of change and the effort required to change company culture may outweigh the business benefits of making the switch, whereas for others it could prove transformative with the right leadership,” Mr Edwards said. He said there were thousands of new businesses starting up every year, and “it is here where going Google seems to produce the most convincing case studies”. Another area where it seems to have appeal is where a business is spun out of a larger enterprise and the new company wants to change the way it does IT, he said. “In cases such as these, new ways of working are often linked with new business models, so switching to a new tool set is just part of adventure and opportunity,” Mr Edwards said. Google has witnessed a spike in interest in Chrome OS, which it believes could be due to the end of support for Windows XP, which powers 30 per cent of desktops. Other organisations that have dropped Microsoft in favour of Google for email, applications or collaboration include Fairfax Media and News Corp Australia, publisher of The Australian, women’s fashion retailer Specialty Fashion Group and Australian Hospitality & Leisure, majority-owned by Woolworths. Fire and Rescue NSW has about 350 Chromebox units at fire stations around the state. Not-for-profit employment services firm MTC Australia has 360 Chromebooks it uses for email and productivity purposes. Woolworths last week revealed it would deploy about 100 Chromebox for Meetings units for videoconferencing. From Here

The original builder and inventor of Puppy Linux. This version was released in 2008. It is built for very old laptop and desktop computers with 512MB of ram or less and a cpu that is Pentium 4,3 or less. Release Notes: http://bkhome.org/blog/?viewDetailed=00518 Distro Watch Announcement: http://distrowatch.com/?newsid=05223 It is only a 95MB download for a operating system. It will run on gear that the newer puppy Linux will not run on. The collection site in the top of my post are Puppy Linux members still supporting 412 and are building current Linux applications still for that much loved release. http://412collection.co.uk/index.php The reason for my thread. I am just showing Windows 2000 and XP users with old old gear another Linux Option That one can choose from many many choices. Choice is good. Just like when buying groceries. Just to show what I did many years ago with a Windows 95 Compaq Laptop. No CDROM boot capability in Bios. Pentium 1 with less than 128MB of ram. http://yatsite.blogspot.com/2008/09/compaq-armada-1540dm-running-windows-95.html I sold that Laptop for 75 bucks back then after I did that. Need a Puppy search engine? http://wellminded.net63.net/
  16. Wait, Canonical actually listened to us? Review The final beta release of Ubuntu 14.04, due in April, is here. Code-named Trusty Tahr, 14.04 will be a Long Term Support release, meaning Canonical will support what you get in April for five years. The idea is it's a solid foundation for long-term development and planning by Canonical and users, particularly partners and businesses, using Ubuntu. It also means this is the first look that more conservative users will get at the direction Ubuntu has been pursuing since the release of 12.04 back in 2012. Ubuntu LTS releases understandably tend toward the conservative end of the spectrum when it comes to new features. You're not going to see Unity 8 in this release, nor will there be any trace of the Mir graphics stack that Canonical is hoping will - one day - support both its desktop and mobile offerings. Rather, this release sees a bunch of small, incremental improvements to Unity and the addition of some long-missing features Canonical had previously rejected. It's the latter that makes Trusty Tahr the most surprising, particularly since, in both cases, Ubuntu developers explicitly rejected the ideas when they were initially proposed. Whatever the reason for the change of heart, many users will no doubt welcome the news that Ubuntu 14.04 will include menus in windows and an option to make apps minimize when you click them in the Unity Launcher. Of all the desktop paradigms Ubuntu upended with the launch of Unity, bumping menus to the top bar was perhaps the most confounding for long-time users. The justification has always been that it saved on vertical screen real estate (it's also more in line with Fitts' Law). With that in mind it should not be surprising to learn that, yes indeed, 14.04 will be adding window level menus, but, instead of adding the menu as a line of options below the window title bar the way you might expect, Ubuntu 14.04 will pack them into the title bar itself to save space. Menu with your window? Sure You might think this would hobble your ability to drag and re-arrange windows, but it does not. Unity is quite adept at recognizing a drag versus a click, and in my testing I never had any trouble moving windows or accessing menu items. While the menu-in-the-title-bar implementation is pretty slick, and plenty stable enough to use, the defaults remain the same - menus are up in the menu bar at the top of the screen, just as they have been since Unity arrived in 11.04. If you want menus in your title bars you'll need to head to the Appearance pane of the System Settings panel where you'll see a new option to "show the menus for a window". Just check the option "In the window's title bar" and you'll have your window-level menus back. Speaking of application menus, Canonical has also reversed course a bit and now includes the full menus for apps like the Nautilus file browser, which once again includes menu items like "File", "Edit" "View" and so on. Another surprising reversal is Ubuntu's decision to allow users to change what happens when you click items in the Unity Launcher. Unlike the typical desktop dock/panel, double-clicking an item in the Unity launcher just gives that application focus (pulling it to the front in most cases). This behavior mirrors what you'll find in Apple's OS X, but is different than what you'll find in Windows, GNOME, KDE, XFCE and most other desktops with some kind of "dock". Page 2 is here Comment by Rok. Just posting the info for those that wanna know.
  17. Based on lupu-5.2.8 . For the Homesick Windows XP users switching to Linux. But. Puppy Linux (read the link) Downloads at http://archive.org/details/Puppy_Linux_lupu-528-yet-another-xp-puppy
  18. NanoPC launched a $69 mini-PC and $67 SBC based on a quad-core Samsung Exynos4412 SoC, with SD, HDMI, USB, camera, and Ethernet, and running Linux and Android. In many cases, there’s not much difference between a single board computer and a mini-PC based on the same SBC. In the case of the fanless, Linux- and Android-ready NanoPC-T1, the difference is worth about two bucks. The open source SBC costs only $67 while the mini-PC costs $69. The SBC ships with its own 5V/2A power supply, designed as a default for U.S. customers, as well as a power adapter and a USB cable. Both prices do not count shipping and handling from NanoPC’s Chinese headquarters. Individual customers and resellers are both said to be welcome. NanoPC-T1 with case (click image to enlarge) The 100 x 60mm NanoPC-T1, which is not to be confused with Foxconn’s $465 Intel Core i7 based, NanoPC AT-7700 , or with AMD’s ultra-thin new Nano PC home theater media player, is the first product from NanoPC. NanoPC points to the Odroid-U3 as its closest competitor. Both products offer Samsung’s quad-core Exynos 4412 system-on-chip, but the Odroid-U3 uses the faster 1.7GHz 4412 Prime instead of the NanoPC-T1′s 1.5GHz 4412 SoC The Odroid-U3 also offers twice the RAM of the 1GB T1, provides four USB ports rather than three, and throws in a heatsink. Two detail views of the NanoPC-T1 (click images to enlarge) Like the Odroid-U3, the NanoPC-T1 provides HDMI, Fast Ethernet, and audio ports. It has a touch-ready LCD interface, which does not appear to be listed for the Odroid. Although the Odroid-U3 costs $7 less than the NanoPC-T1 SBC, that price is only for individual units sold for personal use. The U3 case costs $4 instead of $2. (They both appear to be made of plastic.) Bonuses for the NanoPC-T1 include its 4GB of eMMC flash compared to an empty socket on the Odroid-U3. It also adds CMOS and MIPI camera interfaces, and for those who care, it supplies a full SD slot on the flip side of the board instead of a microSD slot. The NanoPC-T1′s FAQ has an unfinished section that has questions, with no answers, including one about a camera board. Presumably, this ribbon-cabled option is coming soon. In addition, a NanoPC resources page lists schematics for LCD displays, which presumably will become available as options. These include 4.3-, 5-, 7-, and 8-inch displays. Wireless 3G, WiFi, and Bluetooth modules will also be offered as options. NanoPC-T1 with typical peripherals (click image to enlarge) The NanoPC-T1 is supported with source code for Linux + Qt, Ubuntu Linux 12.04, and Android 4.2.2, both onsite and on a DVD. Full hardware schematics are said to be coming, and there’s already considerable documentation, as well as forums.

  19. WiFi for the World from Outer Space Unrestricted, globally accessible, broadcast data. Quality content from all over the Internet. Available to all of humanity. For free. By leveraging datacasting technology over a low-cost satellite constellation, Outernet is able to bypass censorship, ensure privacy, and offer a universally-accessible information service at no cost to global citizens. It's the modern version of shortwave radio, or BitTorrent from space. What Problem is Outernet Solving? There are more WiFi devices in the world than people, yet only 60% of the global population has access to the wealth of knowledge found on the Internet. The price of smartphones and tablets is dropping year after year, but the price of data in many parts of the world continues to be unaffordable for the majority of global citizens. In some places, such as rural areas and remote regions, cell towers and Internet cables simply don't exist. The primary objective of the Outernet is to bridge this global information divide.

    Slimboat Browser

    Slimboat is an interesting variation on Chrome and it has some useful extras that aren’t in the stock browser. Read our Slimboat 1.1.29 review to find out more. Read more: http://www.pcadvisor.co.uk/reviews/internet/3444360/slimboat-1129-review/#ixzz2kjwKgcwF SlimBoat is a free internet web browser that is fast, secure & loaded with powerful features. It is fast to start up and fast to open your favorite web sites. SlimBoat helps you surf the internet safely and securely by incorporating multiple layers of strong protection measures. SlimBoat also includes tons of powerful functions and flexible options so that you can reach your favorite destination on Internet in the most convenient way while avoid unnecessary distractions and annoyances. https://apps.ubuntu.com/cat/applications/precise/slimboat/ We like trying different Web browsers, so when a browser that's actually more than a Chrome or Firefox clone comes along, we're definitely interested. Though it's not radically different in appearance or performance, FlashPeak's lightweight, cross-platform SlimBoat stands out from other browsers by integrating many of the capabilities that the others add on with extensions. It's built on QTWebkit, but all you really need to know is that it's fast and safe. SlimBoat gives up nothing to other browsers when it comes to features and capabilities, either; it inclusdes tons of features such as a form filler, ad and pop-up blockers, a download manager, a YouTube downloader, and integration with Facebook, Twitter, and other social media and Web sites. SlimBoat is free, too, with versions available for Windows, Mac, and Linux. The latest release extracts MP3 audio from YouTube downloads and is Windows 8-ready. SlimBoat can import data from IE, Firefox, or Chrome. In layout and looks, SlimBoat resembles other modern browsers, nearly all of which use those design elements that work best, such as tabs and bookmark toolbars. SlimBoat also takes design cues from other browsers, such as Netscape's draggable toolbars (and even the little dots like finger grips). But we could change a lot about SlimBoat's looks from the View menu, including its Application style, and from the Settings dialog box. And SlimBoat doesn't just go with the flow, either. It's got plenty of nice touches of its own, like an integrated display of local weather conditions that we enabled and configured by clicking Weather in the Settings. SlimBoat offers a plethora of other options, plus tools such as the Ad Blocker and Popup Blocker. We could translate languages and change the interface language from the Languages menu, though the languages pack is an optional download for those who want to save space. SlimBoat is a speedy craft. It launches and loads very quickly and handles well in direct comparisons with other browsers, though it couldn't beat the current champ, Chrome, in bandwidth tests. In real-world Web browsing, though, SlimBoat feels distinctly crisp and fast. Slimboat has earned its place in our browser fleet.

    Dream Desktop

    Animated Desktop Wallpapers are becoming the rage in the Linux Comminity. You need a strong rig to run it though. My gear is inadequate (dual core will struggle with it). Cpu intensive stuff going on here. http://www.jarzebski.pl/projekty/dreamdesktop.html It's a Polish site so Broni or Google Translate has to take over from here.
  22. I read this 1st. Found it is not what I wanted. I have the knowledge to use Clonezilla or the "dd" command with the "tar" command to make a backup image using Linux but I don't want to make a complete backup image of the Vista operating system because the recovery disks for the Acer Desktop my wife has with Vista on it has already been burned/made. All I want to do is backup all those MB of Windows Vista updates to install off line. My internet connection which sux, demands this course of action. So. Being a Linux user. I travel a different road, and have a different mindset than you Window Operators. http://www.h-online.com/security/features/Do-it-yourself-Service-Pack-747193.html Vista is mentioned in the above page and quote. I have not tried this yet and this will be like my Blackberry Phone thread as I figure this one out over time. http://www.wsusoffline.net/ Being German Linux software. It ought to be good though. I posted this in Vista section even though this is a Linux script. VLC, Firefox,Google Chrome are all Linux based also so no harm no foul. All of this came about because I am single again for the next couple of weeks. The wifes desktop is downloading and installing 140MB of Vista updates as I type this and I wondered. "How do I back this crap up?" The Windows people say it can't be done on the net and it's true, this script requires downloading all updates again and installing to pendrive or cd or dvd. But. I like the offline part of it after that. Download part To create update media, start the self explaining UpdateGenerator.exe application (see the video "Download for Windows 7"): Installation part On the target computer, start UpdateInstaller.exe and select update installation options (see the video "Installation under Windows 7"): Click "Start" and your system will be updated: All pictures and stuff from the Documentation part of http://www.wsusoffline.net/docs/ So before asking me questions about Windows 7 or 8 or whatever. I supplied forum links and doc links and have not even tried this out yet. Windows is a bitch for me so maybe Broni or NK or some other knowledgeable Windows member can answer any questions relating to Windows with this application. All I did was find it. Meh, I'll throw this in here also http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/windows-vista/use-ubuntu-live-cd-to-backup-files-from-your-dead-windows-computer/ http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=58305
