http://ubuntuforums.org – Hey, just would like to know people's opinions here. I've never bought a laptop before, or a pre-built computer (only ever built my own towers), so I have a few questions. 1) Is it worthwhile to mess with Nvidia graphics drivers and graphic card switching, etc..., on a Linux laptop? Is the performance increase huge, hows the battery life, etc... (Hardware)

Uncertainty about Current DE/WMview story

http://crunchbanglinux.org – This is kind of a strange home-coming. While I've occasionally checked the crunchbang site and forums, it's been years since I actively used it (ie. 8.10 release).Back then, I wasn't thrilled about the direction that Ubuntu was taking, so I bailed ship for Debian a little before corenominal's announcement that crunchbang would be doing the same.

[Fedora] Out of patience with Ubuntu; help me pick my new OS?view story

http://ubuntuforums.org – For some reason, it seems that Ubuntu and I just weren't meant to be.

http://crunchbanglinux.org – So I was quite busy the las couple weeks and missed all the drama about the supposed death of slackware.Good to read that in the end those claims seemed to be a bit premature.It however got me thinking, partly because of boredom as well, how much "sense" does it make to follow one of the smaller distros (BSD or Linux)?I for one have somewhat gotten hold of my distrohop urges and these da (HowTos)

Support MP4 Woesview story

http://androidforums.com – Hi, I just got this machine and although it looks the part, and feels great especially the keyboard, I'm having a problem.

Or is there an app. (General)

Should I use Java, Java3d, Python or another languageview story

http://ubuntuforums.org – I am starting my dissertation and need some advise. I have a massive amount of 3D spatial data in spreadsheets that could be put into a database if needed. This data is coordinated for vertices of 3d polyhedrons. I need to manipulate the data and see the results in real time. A more detailed explanation is that I need a 3D State Model Engine. (Hardware)
