Tux Machines (TM)-specific
Happy Birthday Susan aka srlinuxx!!! I can't believe you are 39 yet again! Hope you have a great day and a prosperous New Year.
Big oops!!! Leo Laporte delivers technology advice to millions managed to broadcast an explicit Google chat with his lover, exposing the affair he's apparently been carrying on with his CEO.
Looks like someone has been very very naughty! LOL
With Christmas just 10 days away how about putting a little extra something in tuxmachines stocking this year? I know times are tough but if you have an extra 5 or 10 or even 20 bucks it would be a really nice way to say thanks to Susan for bringing us our daily fix of news and information.
Merry Christmas to all!
Took a little break tonight from compiling 64bit PCLinuxOS packages. I took a peek at ChromeOS in Virtualbox. Pretty much the Chrome browser with a login screen and additional settings. Wanna play with ChromeOS in Virtualbox then you can get a vanilla image from the link below.
Firefox product manager Asa Dotzler said today that Mozilla has formed a partnership with Tylenol. This is in response to the business community after complaints that Mozilla's new "Rapid Release" development cycle will cause headaches for IT managers. So starting today all users who download Firefox 5.0 will also get a coupon for a discount off of Tylenol's "Rapid Release" Gel tablets.

PCLinuxOS 2011 - Preview Graphics - http://goo.gl/il3CG
Thanks to the community members who contributed their ideas, time and talent to produce new artwork for the PCLinuxOS distribution.
I wish Linux developers who build libraries for Linux would make their new versions backward compatible with the old version. Also wish they would stop changing their library majors. It is a big pain in the ass to have to rebuild source rpm/deb packages simply to relink a package because of a change with the library major. Every time a developer changes their library major, God kills a kitten.
Just noticed that Angry Birds is now online at http://chrome.angrybirds.com
I was happy to see PCLinuxOS get promoted on the BBC. Below is a link to the video posted on their website. I was told it also appeared on TV so yaaa!
I upgraded the Enlightenment packages post beta 3 for PCLinuxOS which fixes an ordering issue that was present in the beta 3 library release. itask-ng is still acting a bit funky when trying to drag and drop but ordering through the setup menu works good. This update will appear shortly in the Synaptic Package Manager for those who have Enlightenment installed.
I finally got around to getting some torrent links setup for the PCLinuxOS 2010.12 isos. They are currently available at the following locations.
We uploaded some freshly baked ISOS for PCLinuxOS to the repositories. They are gui hot and delicious. PCLinuxOS 2010.12 holiday CDs are now available for KDE 4, Gnome, LXDE, XFCE and Enlightenment desktops featuring the latest updates from the PCLinuxOS software repository. All CD features kernel 220.127.116.11bfs kernel for maximum desktop performance. Nvidia and ATI fglrx driver support.
I finished up packaging Enlightenment E-17 Beta 3 desktop. There still seems to be a few bugs in some of the non-core libs but overall a good release from the Enlightenment developers. This update will appear shortly in your Synaptic Package Manager if you have the Enlightenment desktop installed on PCLinuxOS.
Happy Holidays from Team PCLinuxOS
