Now, I use Chrome all the time, it's just lighter and faster than Firefox. For graphics, Gimp is amazing. Same for vlc for video playing.
Actually I haven't found yet a player able to play correctly every possible dvds (with ***menus*** I mean) and that's really a problem because it makes people coming to linux think it's not that good...

Hi,
Do you have online weather forecasts in 3D (like the addon AniWeather in Firefox) for selected cities around the world (the town/city you live and some other that you are interested in).

And talking about Google I have installed Google Earth and it seems to work pretty well under Linux.

I have problems only with the Flash Editor.
The f4l editor goes in the dimension 'X' under f11, notwithstanding the fact that I have flash codecs all over the computer (online, offline, with the media player, with the movie player, flash viewer, etc,).

I have installed Adobe Illustrator (SK1) for vector graphics, but it is not the same.

Regards,
Christo Petkov

Have you tried kaffeine ? It plays all my dvds, also those that have a menu. kaffeine can also connect to a dvb satellite card and play and record tv shows.

Thanks, I just installed kaffeine and will try it. I know dvd menu problem is just about non-free plugins. BTW vlc too can play tv channels on my computer (with freebox = adsl box from french ISP free.fr) And Google Earth works fine too...

Thumbs up I'm jumping ship

Well....Mmmmm. Seeing all the entries proposing MINT I thought I would try it and it is good, infact it is VERY VERY GOOD.
Have used several distros over the years and thought that Ubuntu closely followed by Fedora were the best but now I only have eyes for MINT glorious MINT.
Hope you get the message!!

In my view if some distro works pretty well - just don't touch it.

Thus for example, on my Desktop PC (at present I am on Fedora 11 i686) I have installed all the top five pieces of software, rated by CNET TV for 2009:

5. GIMP (works reliably)
4. HandBrake
3. Firefox (with all the Add-Ons stuff)
2. OpenOffice (with spell checkers, additional MS fonts installed, etc.).
1. VLC Media Player (supplied even with a flash codec)

Not to talk about Google Earth, Scanners, QCAD, SK1, binary driver plugins for printers, etc.

I do not see any reasonable ground to change my OS and definitely I do not advise you, if everything works properly, to do this.


Best Regards,
Christo Petkov
