LM Debian is supposed to be the future.
Guess the future isn't here yet...  cheesy

LM 13 Maya Cinnamon is supposed to be built on latest Ubuntu.
Is that stable enough?

The installation process automatically assigns the amount for swap.

The fun with Windows 7 is that it just works.
You can tweak it to your liking after but you don't have to look in 50 forums before you get an satisfactory answer.

For sure, if some billionaire would come around, things would change,
but then i suppose it would become somebody else's monopoly.

BTW, my Windows 7 works just fine.
Never an unexpected delay for any program.

I could have said, "Is Linux for real?!"

I've spent some considerable time over the last week trying to get into Linux,
especially with LinuxMint which seems to be the second best after Ubuntu.

Decided to give the recent 201204 Debian edition a spin (learning steep is high) and it was hard to get it installed (dual boot).
My major problem with it was opening programs like Firefox, OpenOffice (oops! LibreOffice).
Thought it was bad on my Windows7 but they take forever to open even on Linux!
And... you can't press ctrl+shift+Esc to know if they're runnin' or not.
And then Firefox jams.
You click on the exit button, nothing happens.  mad
Again, you can't ctrl+shift+Esc to see if it's going tilt or not.
And yet, i gave this Debian edition all the juice (and more!) that was required on installation.
Besides, many pages in Firefox never look as good as on Windows.

Then i decided to give LinuxMint's latest Maya Cinnamon edition a try.
Same problem.

Heck, my friend has Firefox running on an old XP and it performs twice as fast as on my system!  embarassed

What gives? I don't know.

Running here on Windows 7 Home Ed. Intel Duo ; 2.52Ghz ; 4G memory with 500G hard disk.

One of the main advantages of the CintaNotes paid version is the ability to create new database files.
The ability to sync with Dropbox (or others) makes it an interesting program to have.

Phew! Looks like you've tested them all!  Cool

Personally, i really liked NoteZilla and was willing to keep on payin' for upgrades but they've been idle for quite some time now.
Ubernote is fast like the name says but it too has been sitting idle for quite some time too. Don't want to invest in that now do we?

There's EssentialPIM that offers a "stickies" kind of option but my overall feel for the program is lukewarm.

I like CintaNotes for its simplicity, ease to configure, small footprint, good support and promising future.

Well, the html file is really basic. All in one with all the hyperlinks you had in CN intact.

Of course, the program in itself is really simple but when you can capture a url + text in one click and then search your whole database super fast without worrying about where you saved it, that is pretty darn good for me.  Kiss
I remember a friend who would place all his paper work in one pile.
He knew pretty well where everything was much better than myself who tried to keep things "tidy".
IMO, the tagging part of CN helps to satisfy that "tidy" part of people (me included).

This program is right next to FARR on my list of must programs to install.

Although we take it for granted, Opera's wand is still pretty "magical"!  Kiss

In the line of wish lists for the New Year...
Feedly and CloudMagic would be nice additions.

-btw, is there anyway to file new notes to a default folder or any other of personal choice?

136  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Opera: The web browser I have been dying to love on: December 29, 2011, 11:11:10 AM
Josh,

I too have same feelings as you.

But! Opera's 12 Wahoo version is really good!  Thmbsup
The new mail client revamp is fantastic, the browser usually uses less system resources than all the other browsers (except for IE9) and it is snappy as can be at startup and page rendering!  Kiss

Extensions wise it's still lacking but a few like
http://www.moonlight21.com/opera-internal-pages
and http://www.similarsites.com/similarweb/
and the ability to add new search engines to the search box,
that, and little programs like http://www.clicktoapp.com/ i think i can be happy.
137  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Is Smilebox safe? on: December 29, 2011, 11:01:56 AM
A few friends of mine use this Smilebox service:
http://www.smilebox.com/
recently acquired by hum... Incredimail:
http://www.imaging-resour....com/NEWS/1312233180.html

I am weary about this Smilebox stuff since a friend recently caught a trojan of sorts.
My hunch (i could be wrong) is, she was invited to click on a link (via Smilebox?) and it got her.

Anyone have experience with this service?

I've read so much negative things about Incredimail, that anything that has to do with them i stay away from.

Is this negative attitude justified?

140  DonationCoder.com Software / Clipboard Help+Spell / Can CH capture text + url in one shot? on: November 19, 2011, 12:30:13 PM
Is there a way to configure CH to copy text + url from any browser in one click?
Similarly, can it do the same for a text from file (text + location on pc)?






BTW, IE9 identified CH as dangerous stuff!   Sad

Word "dangerous" wasn't there (sorry!)
142  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: FARR not a commonly downloaded program? on: October 15, 2011, 10:17:53 AM
Oh! oh!   Cry

IE9 must be getting oversensitive these days.
I should have taken a snapshot but i was still in the process of installation.
Nevertheless, i did see with my own eyes words in a long phrase with "dangerous" and "not commonly downloaded" in it.

Sheeshhh!
143  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / FARR not a commonly downloaded program? on: October 15, 2011, 06:46:10 AM
This is a good one!

After doing a fresh install of my good ol' Windows 7 Home,
i took IE out for a stroll to download one of my top 5 favorite programs (FARR).
After waiting a while for it to finish downloading,
IE tells me that it could be a dangerous program for it is not commonly downloaded?!
I couldn't install it straight from IE but did manager to find the Download folder and install it.
Of course, this happened prior to installing my AV program but still! What a... shinanigan!

Long live Firefox!  Thmbsup

Goccha! Diigolet isn't that bad!
Of course, Firefox was their first baby so it's hard for them to replicate their toolbar for every other browser (though they seem to be courting G Chrome quite a bit lately).

btw, i've also got a diploma in philosophy; not sure what that's worth these days.
146  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Opera 11.5 Released on: July 01, 2011, 05:03:38 AM
@MilesAhead - pardon my ignorance, but what exactly is this "auto-wrapping" of bookmarks?

@urlwolf - "kb" shortcut for Diigo?

I only have my grade 12 diploma.
147  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Opera 11.5 Released on: June 30, 2011, 07:46:32 PM
Don't know if that happens to you, but until recently, i'd get not just those "lame bookmarks" that MilesAhead spoke of, but also a whole slew of duplicates (sync online process). With latest versions, the sync process seems to have improved.

Wonder why Opera installs those "lame bookmarks"?
Are they getting money for this publicity?

Ya, of all places!  Grin

Reminds me of IBM who had come out with a super performing computer a few years back.
Apparently it could make impeccable weather forecasts.
The next day, an unforeseen wet front came in, dumping in plenty of rain that the new computer failed to pick up.

We do our best but computers will never be perfect.
