I don't mind windows 8 to be honest.
If I want to open something I can press the windows key and start typing and it appears.
I did however show this to my uncle at the weekend as his XP laptop is getting near it's end and he was a bit unsure.
The only thing that irritates me is Chrome, for some reason I can't get my taskbar to appear unless I minimise the window and I can't run it in windows 8 mode as then I can't seem to have 2 sessions open at once.
Other than that I have no real gripe.
Never seen that before to be honest, I think it's a nice idea.
There are downsides I suppose but I like it.
I'll wait till it's been released and I can have a look before making a judgement.
I have an IPAD 2 and a cheapo bluetooth keyboard and I use it daily, It works for the things I wish to do on it.
(Although the battery life seems to have decreased since IOS 6 which can be annoying)
The change of dock connector though is annoying.
Was it this one that had the stand up comedian on stage complete with rim shot after the jokes.
Or am I thinking of a different game?
i'm on Orange
I wonder how long we will have to wait for their customised version?
The message of 11.10 seems pretty clear: Unity is here and you're either going to love it or leave it.
And that is a shame, I tried unity for a while and I hated it.
I'll have to look into XFCE next and see if I can configure that to my liking.
Do you guys have any desktop suggestions?
My 3G is off at the moment (im in the Manchester area) , although I agree when it is working its very very slow.
I did speak to CS about it but all they could do was get me to perform a network reset on the device.
I had to endure..
Endless nights of my stupid neighbours shagging at 1:00 in the morning and waking me up.
Not to mention the partys till 4:30 / 5:00 in the morning.
Why go to bed at night (and sleep) when you have no job to get up for and can sleep all day???
I was glad when the scrote bags could'nt pay thier rent and got evicted.
I have a lot of sympathy with the neighbours of this loud mouth
is it to much to ask?
I would prefer it if they could put more money in to hiring programmers to sort out the issues with the Linpus install on my aspire one rather than spit out another "new" model.
I know I could always change the install to <insert distro here> but I dont really want the hassle, I just want it to work. is it to much to ask?
Re:Guilty as charged
I have not read all the comments so apologies if this has been replied to already.
I have the aspire one running Linpus (modded though to get a desktop rather than the 4 windows thing)
They have some software now called mobile partner that handles 3g dongles,you can get it by doing the live update.
I have a '3' 3g usb dongle and it seems to work ok.
The only real annoying thing for me at the moment is that Linpus does not remember my WPA key unless my SSID is broadcasting.
I have also tried other distro's (I was running ubuntu for a long while but decided to return to the original linpus install)
Paris : Because my dongle seems to work ok when I look at her videos.
I still have a sealed box....
Of Windows version 3.0.
It says on the box "New! Breaks the 640k memory barrier. Unleash all the power of your PC"
"Microsoft. Making it all make sense"
Ahhh the good 'ole days
I will be voting with my feet I think.
First they make friends with Phorm and now they are all friendly with the BPI.
It seems like they are on a mission to piss everyone off....
Mines the one with the new ISP signup contract in the pocket.
