@ John A.

I agree with the article on one thing............micro$oft is persistant
interesting to note that asus  ( I THINK , I need more coffee) ,is promising tablets , one for windows , and one for linux..........

Interesting article, and I agree with one of the respondent's suggestions of spiffs and merchandising the name rather than the software..T-shirts, mugs, etc....Community coordinator could engage the community with contests and even possibly have community programming contests for open source projects in Pardus.

The key being to engage the community in a proactive manner and to bring excitement to the community and product.

BTW I am not a fan of the white on black installer...it's drab.

The new Linux Mint will have a interesting solution with the Gnome 3 issues:

@anglophony

although a bit off topic:
yes, my 1-bit switched from 0 (no connection) to 1 (yes, i understand). so, that covers the binary part nicely Grin

what do you know: just read john irvings 'twisted river' which is partly set in toronto, where he resides himself too, some of his time. he also mentioned canada being bi-lingual (can i say it that way? actual it's multi lingual, if one respects the native tongues too, but that's just imho, again)

till recent even had family in your country: in calgary, alberta. she went to canada during ww II and joined canadian forces.

to stay on topic a bit: linux from scratch and arch linux are both canadian afaik? i often take look in the wiki from arch. a real recommendation for those who like penguins (nah, no real penguins in canada...)

Technically Bilingual, in practice a smorgasborg language wise, since we are a very cosmopolitan country
As for indian languages : http://forums.xkcd.com/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=4953  Grin

Not sure on LFS or Arch , but  here was STORM (debian) , Corel linux  ( now Xandros a debian distro ) ....

and hat we lack in penguins , we make up for with polar bears , and Inuit Tongue

maybe we should start a topic called 'canadian penguins' (and yes, they both derive from canada), owiknowi would thrive well over there...

nice article john a, nice contradictions too (in the article that is).

like quote blog: "It doesn’t do multi-tasking well (you can’t see opened windows, system tray icons, etc..)" and a little further it goes "... and is developing a better way for us to interact with our computer"

right, who is 'us' and what is that about 'our computer'? are we going to implant them (may i have a yellowish-blueish-bright-black one)? or share one big cuddly computy thingy worldwide? no, lets start a commune with them!

and who would ever want a computer to be multi-tasking? we are multi-taskingable ourselves!
we can write letters and draw something by hand, meanwhile stare at the clouds or stars, and listen to music too, mind you...

who needs a functional computer these enlightened days? lets abolish the computers! starting with the software (the little leds are still pretty neat).

to the artists who are so concerned with new desktops, i would suggest: look up the words usability and computers in a paper dictionary.
