Is I.E. 8 the end for explorer?

Posted 11-16-2009 at 01:17 PM by pereb

I've heard through the grapevine that IE8 is the last version of the IE browser. Is microsoft throwing in the towel?

They've got to be coming up with a replacement. Some are claiming that Microsoft will go with WebKit, which, thanks to the popularity of Apple's Safari browser and also Google's Chrome, is rapidly becoming a standard for all non-IE and non-Firefox implementations.

Others say that that the whole WebKit story is merely a feint and that Microsoft will...

Linux is a lost cause!

Posted 11-14-2009 at 06:40 AM by jaymarting (The messy world of technology)

This is the quote I was told earlier this week by a colleague. "Linux is a lost cause."

HAS LINUX LIVED UP TO ITS PROMISE?

I don't for a second agree that Linux is truly lost but I do certainly agree with my friend and colleague that the promise Linux fortune tellers made has not come to pass. As we close in on 2010, I harken back 10 years to promises of a nearly dead Microsoft and a world run almost entirely by Linux. Good, bad or otherwise that just has...

Windows 7

Posted 06-08-2009 at 11:24 AM by pereb

Yes, I realize this is a Linux site, but I just have to talk about Windows 7 here for a minute. Anyone else tried it? I’m sure a lot of you have. I’ve been playing around with the release client on my old spare machine, and even though it’s running on some old technology (Pentium 4 3.02 GHz, 1 GB ram – basically the minimum Microsoft recommends) I have to admit I’m pretty impressed with what I’ve seen so far.

As much as I generally am not a fan of Microsoft’s OS, dealing with it...

Bing- A Microsoft Decision Engine - My 'Try It'

Posted 06-01-2009 at 08:41 AM by Mr. ameya sathe (Tantra Yantra Swatantrya)

Today is 1st June 2009. I have fired up the ‘Internet Explorer 8’ – a Microsoft web browser offering. I type just ‘slackware.org’ in the address bar. The circular motion on the tab started. More it takes time to load the page; more I dread. I dread the live.com search engine web page. Even; if you type the complete web page link given by live.com, say for example slackware.org; its still going to return live.com web page L.
OOPS!! I strayed away. Instead of being represented with...

Why I came to use Ubuntu

Posted 11-16-2008 at 05:32 PM by Avoura
Updated 11-16-2008 at 05:38 PM by Avoura

I started using Linux back in the late 1990s. Back then it was dialup on Windows 95, and I was getting fed up with Windows 95 and its constant crashing and other problems, so I read about Linux somewhere, and downloaded Red Hat Linux, and installed that.

However, there were a number of problems with that, including no support for my Creative soundcard nor the modem, and it did not automount the hard drive partitions other than root, and I did not know how to fix that. So I gave up...
