    All the article links are Flash... preventing an "Open in New Tab". This is certainly a weird way to do rollovers on links.

    they unloaded it on unpaid labor who do all the work for them and they just control

    But all RedHat does is steal work from these poor programers just look at the end of this comment. They contribute more than any other single entity, dedicating 1/5th of their income to R&D. If anyone deserves a "free plug" certain Red Hat is one of those companys.

    You can get around this:

    1. Hold down shift
    2. Hover the link, and press Ctrl+C
    3. (Still with shift held) Press Ctrl+V+T

    You can do it pretty fast once mastered

    Keep using yum, or install apt. For security and general updates, stick with up2date, or just use "yum upgrade". There are many many repositories out there with thoushands of applications. Just have to add a line to your yum.conf or apt sources. Here are a few of my favorites:
    FreshRPMS []
    Dag []
    Livna [] []

    Some repositories play nicer with each other then others, i.e. Livna is maintained to be compatible with the repo. Dag has a huge selection of applications, as does FreshRPMS. You should read each site and see which you think is best for you. Personally, your best and easiest bet is to just use the yum.conf [] provided by You may want to uncomment some additional repositories, but if you leave it how it is, you should be fine. is also a good site for general Fedora information. If nothing else, go in #fedora on irc, everyone there is usuaully always friendly and willing to help.

    What crack are you on?
    For Gnome:Open a terminal window and run the command gconf-editor. When the GConf editor window appears, open the apps folder, then the metacity folder and finally click on the general folder. Find the variable called reduced_resources and click the check box next to it.
    For KDE:Open a terminal window and run the command kcontrol. When the KDE Control Center window appears, click the "+" symbol next to the Desktop menu item to expand it. Then click the Window behavior menu item. Under the Moving tab, uncheck the options Display content in moving windows, Display content in resizing windows, and Animate minimize and restore.
    That is fair and unbiased. and both use a gui.

    Also how up to date is Debian's distro? It is very stable (and I use it on certain servers), but a lot of the packages are somewhat behind.
    A lot? Isn't this is the distro that never made a release during the entire 2.4 kernel series? The entire distro is behind.
    Anyone using debian these days is living in the past ... in more ways than one. Debian is about as current as yggdrasil.

Matter cannot be created or destroyed, nor can it be returned without a receipt.
