Debian

Posted 03-15-2011 at 03:53 PM by drask

Okay, my Ubuntu install has been getting raggedy over time. I've upgraded it a couple of times and that's always iffy, plus our network engineers have been busily tying our shares to both our user and computer active directory entries, which worked for a while under Ubuntu using Likewise-open, but then stopped and I haven't had time to figure out why. So baby with the bathwater style, I decided it was time to jump ship and try Debian. I've always heard good things about that distro even before Ubuntu...

Formula to calculate video bitrate
