Re: Ubuntu phone.

A lot of people don't even know that Android and Chrome OS are Linux. In the past when I have told people that Android is based off from Linux, they look at me like I'm crazy. A lot of people don't know Linux runs their Roku, ereader, appliance, ect., but those places are where Linux has already su...

Re: Ubuntu phone.

When people first look up Linux, its Ubuntu they mostly come across first. If you go look at all the new comers that come to SolydXK, I bet 75% or more started on Ubuntu, go look at other Linux distros, I bet its the same. Love or hate Ubuntu, it is the Windows of Linux. I agree that's the way it h...

Re: Ubuntu phone.

I hope Ubuntu isn't the face of Linux :-) Canonical is in this for money, not love, and if they ever discover they just can't compete with Android, well, we will see. I think Firefox OS is smarter about this by going very low cost in third world countries. Ubuntu seems to be aiming for the higher en...

Re: Introduction To Linux Mooc

Got the email. It looks like they fund their site by selling verified certificates for $250. Which, if someone wants/needs it for professional certification maybe it's worth having. Otherwise anyone can get the honor code certificate for free.

Re: Introduction To Linux Mooc

Good for you Schoelje! As long as my wife's computer works, she could care less about 'how' it works lol! I think these online courses are great. A friend mentioned them to me awhile back. I looked for something about Linux or coding that seemed interesting, but could find nothing at that time. I do...

Re: Introduction To Linux Mooc

I had actually looked at this course in the past, and was surprised to see it available for free now online. A $2500 Linux course for free is a great deal. Looks like lots of interest in it :-)

Re: Breakages and News tracking Debian Testing

The other day I did something I had never accomplished before. I took a Debian 7 Gnome install, did a dist-upgrade to Testing, it broke Gnome badly, removed GDM, ended up logging in from the terminal, the desktop was a mess with missing icons and features. I then did dist-upgrade to Sid, and that pr...

Re: UP process change

If one is truly worried about getting all these updates ASAP there is always the ability to set sources to Testing or if that isn't quick enough--Sid ;-)

Re: Breakages and News tracking Debian Testing

Setup another Solydx install on a different computer last night with sources set to Testing. It has a minor hiccup when starting up, it hesitates for a few seconds saying: press any key to continue... but then loads up fine. I think it probably has something to do with when I ran the updates and it ...

Re: A question concerning testing

Thanks! I figured it was. I switched my SolydX sources to Testing tonight and had no issues dist-upgrade. I also installed Listbugs as a precaution. I'm curious to see how it runs with Testing sources.

Re: A question concerning testing

Question for you guys running Testing and/or Sid:
Do you have fewer problems with Testing than Sid sources? I'm curious about this regarding SolydXK.

Re: A question concerning testing

Thanks for that info Gene!
May need it. I've got a machine multi-booting 6 distros. I tried SolydK on it it but it would not boot up. No problem with the other distros. Had the issue before with SolydX not booting when installed alongside others.
