Thanks for introducing me to Josh Woodward. That guys hilarious! I found a good playlist on GrooveShark too http://grooveshark.com/#!/playlist/Josh … d/59167417
I've got a couple of collaborative projects running with developers in different time zones. I want to set up a collaborative space for them to share what they are working on with spaces for particular projects. I would also like it to have permission control for pages so some could be private. There would be a maximum of 50 registered users. Mediawiki is probably a little to complex for what I need and I don't feel that wordpress has enough focus on the collaboration. I was considering getting an Open Source Project License Request for a confluence instance but it seems weird having an open source project running on closed course software.
PHP and MySQL would be my preference. Has anyone here setup something similar? Any ideas?
I'm curious to hear to how well various Linux distros work on MacBook Airs these days. I'm not looking to get a laptop at the moment, but I think the 11" Air is perfect (in terms of hardware). I've been very disappointed that none of the Ultrabooks have been able to match them in looks, and the quality of the keyboard, display, and general build quality.
Ubuntu 12.04 is the first distro that has worked natively for me on a Macbook air. Let me know if you want me to test any live boot distros for you mate.
I am glad we have another Mac owner here. If Apple bring out a Mini with IvyBridge and I take the plunge I can ask you dumb questions.
I'm a fan of the mac hardware but the drivers are always an issue. 11.04/10 were a headache to get installed (see below) :s So I was glad that 12.04 booted with no issues. I've got half a dozen desktops installed atm and I'll be trialling them over the next few weeks. Thanks for all your input penguins!
I was impressed that the guys at the mac store were so willing to help. I think I was lucky though, last time I booked an appointment with an apple "genius" I told him I was running Linux and he was very much...
Thank you for the welcome I think the customisability is what I'm missing most. Gnome2 was really mature so it had heaps of options. The main thing I find annoying is the new desktop management and the fact that I can't get rid of panels I'm not using, that strip is a lot of room on a small screen. I think I will take your advice and just force myself to use an alternative :S I should stop being such a hater and just embrace change
I bought a new MacBook Air and I just installed Ubuntu 12.04 (there were driver issues with previous versions). I'm not liking this Unity desktop though I really liked the Mint Gnome2 mix that I had installed on my last MacBook Air (see below). But now Mint is playing with Mate and it is nowhere near as customisable. I couldn't even get rid of the panel at the top. Any ideas for an alternative? So far I've installed KDE, Mate, and Gnome3.
