The computing world is pretty much divided into three unequal slices of Π. The turtlenecked sweaters, two piece suits and the all sorts. I am of course referring to Apple, microsoft and Open Source Smile Each class, so to speak, looks upon the other with some measure of disdain and each believes that their leavings have no olfactory residue. I know for a fact that that is not true as anyone visiting the little room after me can testify Smile

From what I can gather, it comes down to microsoft people believing that open source people are only out to suck each others blood for free and that they are no more than pirates turned hippie. They believe that the Apple crowd are brainwashed into paying more for machines that do less and lull the "Joblets" into a mind dead hand held stupor.

The Apple crowd think that microsoft people are nothing more than plebeians who wouldn't know a real operating system if they were smacked around the head a few times with it.

Distro Development: Rescatux and Bodhi

  • Rescatux 0.40 beta 9 released
    Many code in the grub side and in the windows registry side has been rewritten so that these new features could be rewritten. As a consequence it will be easier to maintain Rescapp. Finally the chntpw based options which modify the Windows registry now perform a backup of the Windows registry files in the unlikely case you want to undo some of the changes that Rescapp performs. I guess that in the future there will be a feature to be able to restore such backups from Rescapp itself, but, let’s focus on releasing an stable release. It’s been a while since the last one. UEFI feedback is still welcome. Specially if the Debian installation disks work for you but not the Rescatux ones.
  • Bodhi 4.0.0 Updates and July Donation Totals
    Late last month I posted a first alpha look at Bodhi 4.0.0. Work since then has been coming along slowly due to a few unpredictable issues and my own work schedule outside of Bodhi being hectic over the summer. Bodhi 4.0.0 will be happening, but likely not with a stable release until September. I am traveling again this weekend, but am hoping to get out a full alpha release with 32bit and non-PAE discs next week.
