Currently, I'm looking at VirtualBox which runs on all the OSs, but this is not true of them all. Also thinking I will make Linux the base OS since I have more confidence in its security and insulation from threats and that will be the OS most used for internet etc.-Dormouse (November 21, 2007, 05:38 PM)
For example there has been / is still a hot debate going in the Linux community because it was suggested the kernel needed DRM measures for this very same functionality. Unless I've been mistaken.-justice (November 22, 2007, 09:09 AM)
But that is not what I wanted to discuss in this thread. Ranting about how software protection is a load of shit, isn't answering my question.-tinjaw (October 04, 2007, 08:13 AM)
You have to decide what line of business you are in:
1. Are you making games to sell to honest people?
2. Are you making free puzzle games for crackers?-app103 (October 02, 2007, 01:17 AM)
Exactly, a car can be compared to a computer in that, the longer you keep it, the more it costs to maintain. For a computer, the longer you keep it without upgrading, the more of your TIME it takes to maintain.-Josh (September 11, 2007, 07:36 PM)
I had a few apps that did not play well, I cut them loose after a reasonable amount of time after Vista's launch. Reasonable being 2 months.-GHammer (September 11, 2007, 06:26 PM)
Get on down the road, take the time to get familiar with Vista, spring for new hardware if what you use is not supported in Vista. But get with the 21st century.
I'm searching a tool, which acts like a "email-filter-rules" but on the filesystem level.-crono (August 31, 2007, 09:35 AM)
For me, the perfect world would be windows + linux in something like parallels, so that i could take the best of both worlds.-jgpaiva (August 11, 2007, 09:27 AM)
I'm not sure when Nick is going to get back to TopStyle. He said that he's been away from it for a while but wants to get back to it as soon as he can.-Renegade (July 29, 2007, 09:27 PM)
i.e. They want you to buy Dreamweaver...-Renegade (July 29, 2007, 05:38 PM)
I used to use Allaire HomeSite as an HTML editor.-Jimdoria (July 27, 2007, 09:30 PM)
I have just installed and am now running version .125 alpha. I am getting similar behaviour - when I double click on a name in the main display the Find and Run application goes to the small window and stays - I have to press the close 'X' in the upper right corner of it's window. It launches the program correctly, and I do NOT get this behaviour when I use a function key to launch or cursor down to the program name and press ENTER.-JeffC (July 08, 2007, 09:00 AM)
Why use VMWare when you can use colinux?-tonsofpcs (July 17, 2007, 05:52 PM)
can you work on a project (the same files) using both unix and win then ? (cygwin can)-vixay (July 17, 2007, 07:30 AM)
Summary for quick review, understanding & implementation: (your post is hard to scan quickly for info)
- Get a PC (with >1 GB RAM)
- Install Windows XP SP2 (Vista untested)
- Install VMWare (workstation or server)
- Install Ubuntu/Your flavor of unix in VMWare
- Setup VMWare networking correctly (How?)
- Install X-server for windows (xming)
- Setup your win X-server to use VM ubuntu (How?) (this is the innovative part!)
- Install KDE Kicker? to launch apps from windows-vixay (July 17, 2007, 07:30 AM)
So is that all correct? Any better ideas? or want to flesh it out more... to make it like a guide...
Anyway after reading your post i revisited powerpro & tlb...
didn't see anything very useful with TLB... maybe i just don't know how to use it or how it is better than the default quick launch
as for powerpro, it interferes with stroke it... and it's cumbersome and complicated to use... i am sure it's great once setup correctly, but setting it up correctly takes ages!
Feel free to take this post, expand on it and put it in the 1st post
Also i had a question about your setup then.... where do you install the applications you want to use? in the VM or windows?
and what is the real benefit? can you work on a project (the same files) using both unix and win then? (cygwin can)
Why not use a dual screen setup? With Linux on one and WinXP on the other?-vixay (July 11, 2007, 11:45 PM)
Another interesting setup would be to have th LiveCDS boot in windows itself, so you can have risk-free linux when you want.... and if on flash drive then you can save data too...
Why bother with SSH encryption when you're running the X server on the same machine as the VMware guest, though? Why not just connect directly?-f0dder (July 11, 2007, 06:41 PM)
Something that looks very interesting is parallels coherence...
Ooh.. nice. I may try this sometmie! Though I do like Compiz Fusion alot and I doubt it would work this way.-Laughing Man (July 11, 2007, 12:23 PM)
Could you help the ignorant among us and tell us how you set up running Linux and Windows on the same desktop.-Carol Haynes (July 10, 2007, 12:49 PM)
i changed a couple of things that could have revived this problem, but the absolute easiest way for me to fix it is if someone knows an older version that doesn't exhibit this behavior.-mouser (July 08, 2007, 09:02 AM)
after double clicking to launch a result?-mouser (July 07, 2007, 10:38 PM)
does it matter if you are launching a file result or an alias?
remind me again the details please
v2.00.125 is now up with a lot of bugfixes.
bugfixing will continue on the way to official public release this month.-mouser (July 07, 2007, 04:52 PM)
