Ubuntu and UUID

Filed under

wolfger.wordpress: Ubuntu mounts devices with something called UUID. I’d never heard of it before, but it “just worked”, so I left it alone. It wasn’t a problem. Until I installed Gutsy Tribe 5 on my other partition. Gutsy decided that it needed to format my swap partition for some odd reason. Formatting it, apparently, gives it a new UUID.

Alpha road test - Gnash 0.8.1

Filed under

FOSSwire: Flash is everywhere on the web nowadays. From YouTube (and the myriad of other video sites), to corporate websites, to online portfolios, a web experience without Flash Player installed isn’t really a complete web experience. For some time, the GNU Project has been working to build a free replacement for Flash Player.

Vista SP1's delay is Desktop Linux's good news

Filed under

DesktopLinux: Vista's been something of a flop. I know it. You know it. Even in Bill Gates' secret sanctum hidden underneath his mansion they know it. Businesses, in particular, aren't about to touch Vista for corporate desktops until they get SP1. Guess what? They're not going to be getting it anytime soon.
