no, but virtualbox itself offers a debian/ubuntu repo with the proprietary version.
hm, actualy the non free version is free to use for pretty much everything (even on cooperate environments), unless you're doing it in large scale deployments (ala roll it out on every workstation at your company etc.) so why not use that one?
Unless by non free version you mean the non usb version. I use the usb version so maybe that isn't there in the non-usb version. But I thought the lack of USB support was the only difference.
I've tried Chrome....but I can NOT live without ABP. Adblock Plus. It blocks out 90% of those stupid little ads that don't interest me anyways. I don't thin Chrome has anything like that. I can't see Google wanting anything like that as they get all of their revenue through ads.
Easiest re-install ever......after I jettisoned any hint og Ubuntu 10. Grub2 does not like my hardware AND apparently there is a bug in the version of gparted that ships with the latest release. I had to boot a live CD of Ubuntu 9.?? to actually edit the HD they way I wanted it.
Good news though....I was able to simply copy my configuration files for Thunderbird and Firefox. Usually I have to mess with things.
well, unless you need windows/bsd vms I think vserver / virtoutzo is the right choice.
You're not a traitor, you're innovative!
(I too have switched to Chrome on all of my linux machines... and windoze machines...)
yahoo is dead in the whater as is nokia.
both of them just have the chance of somebody else being interested enough to purchase them before microsoft does.
I think since its going to take nokia another year to produce smartphones with the only microsoft supported arm silicon : qualcom.
Nokia never used qualcom cpus, so its a complete redesign.
Otoh, we have HP here with the palm os, which definitely is a very good thing, plus based on a linux kernel.
I'd put hopes into the direction of HP buying nokia, so they can enter the smartphone biz in a bigger scale.
but nokia would need fo first get rid of that microsoft drone on the captains seat.
Alas for contractual reasons they couldn't force all prodigy.net (and other legacy sbc/at&t domain) email users to go to yahoo, they just begged and pleaded and sent lots and lots of email suggesting you switch. I think almost everybody did, their webmail was a lot better than mine, I stopped working on it in 2002 or so.
The people who didn't switch of course were prodigy alumni (and there are still some who are in this barely supported legacy state) I am a special case. I got my email address onto a list of special email addresses that have to do with monitoring and AT&T starts a project up every once in a while to get rid of it, but nobody knows what most of the addresses are for, so they can cel the project because they're afraid of breaking something, so I still have my prodigy.net address, but it's not handled by yahoo or AT&T, it just gets forwarded to me directly.
But the other prodigy.net alum still use the legacy system. And they maintain a few machines just to handle it as far as I heard last.
Right before I left there was a secret project, I forget what it was about, but I remember there was one because everybody knew about the secret project, but nobody knew about the SUPER secret project.
And that was to prepare to yank the plug on yahoo and go with yet another system.
But don't tell anybody, it's super secret.
Not sure what happened, if they stayed with yahoo or went with something else. I guess they stayed with yahoo if that's what you're seeing.
You should see if we can get the Prodigy domain names back from AT&T;
they don't appear to be using them anymore. There's enough brainpower
When I first tried to do this it was a matter of politics, and I lost being a nobody.
Now it would be impossible simply because it's owned by the machine, and they probably don't have the ability to get rid of it.
Thu Mar 03 2011 03:59:55 PM EST from IGnatius T Foobar @ UncensoredAh, I see that the new AT&Tigy webmail portal *is* Yahoo. That explains why they look identical.
It was about time. The only way that AT&T could get around the whole "public utility filtering my email content" debacle was to outsource the actual handling of their high speed internet customers' email to a company that wasn't a public utility.
From Ars Technica: "Ubuntu founder Mark Shuttleworth has announced that version 11.10 of the popular Linux distribution will be codenamed Oneiric Ocelot. As per Ubuntu's usual six-month schedule, the release is due to arrive in October of this year.
The word "oneiric" describes a dreamlike state. Shuttleworth says that the name Oneiric Ocelot is intended to represent the innovation process, which he characterizes as a confluence of daydream and discipline."
Please, somebody stop Shuttleworth before he alliterates again.
Meanwhile I really want to get a hold of the prodigy.* domain names, I know it's silly but I still feel like the bunch of us could do a better web portal than most of the crap out there.
carla schroeder laid off from linux today...
This is a great DNS/DHCP server for a home network, but it would also serve nicely at a branch office.
Little by little I'm simplifying my home setup. I doubt it'll ever get to the point where my family can maintain it if I get hit by a bus, but it's simpler than it used to be. We're all enjoying the benefits of having a file server and in-house VoIP, so those are still in place.
On the other hand, gone are the days when I meticulously put a static IP and a little Dymo label on every computer in the house. And I've ditched nearly every server except the main one and an identical cold spare. Virtualization makes the roomful of machines a thing of the past.
