Tut, tut Reg. Can't believe you missed this one: Auntie Beeb have brought out a new version of the AIR-based iPlayer download manager now that AIR has been released for Linux.
Ubuntu version numbers aren't as you'd expect - rather than being "real" versions, they're based on the release date. Hardy is 8.04 because it's released in forth month of the 2008, not because it's version 8 of Ubuntu.
And on the subject of Hardy - I've been using it since the last beta, and it's fab.
I'm quite peed off that ndiswrapper doesn't work properly any more, though - my laptop's built-in wifi, which has worked perfectly with ndiswrapper since 6.06, is now useless for anything other than an unsecured network.
Hopefully they'll fix it soon...
"Make holding a driving licence mandatory [...] to prove your age"
Why not substitute the words "driving license" for "ID card"?
I don't understand how anybody would bother with Google Desktop for Linux - don't Beagle and Tracker both other the same (if not better) functionality?
Google Desktop for Mac OS X makes equally as little sense, as OS X already ships with Spotlight.
