About the post you're talking about...
It was just explained why you should bother with the rest of it. When read in full... the first sentence is not in error.
I see now that you're going after little things (/posts/post/).
Typical strategy of one whose argument is flawed.
Omg dude... I thought OCB was anal retentive.

You take the cake.

All this time, I've been talking about that post of yours that started with "Light's speed is constant."

There was only one post of yours that started with that particular sentence.

That was the only post I've been referring to.

I know it sucks to lose, but you just did.

OS/2 was my favorite system. You could customize the hell out of that, all built in. But it died. No support.
Too old and tired to want to play with these things any more.
Ubuntu and all of it's derivatives suck. You also do realize that any media player on a Linux system can play any format that the others can play, correct? Totem, like MPlayer and all the others, are called front ends for a reason.

Uh huh.

I assume you like Scientific Linux. That's Red Hat.

Totem is a nice and simple interface for music and videos. Very well supported. I like the Goom visualization, also.

Not all can play everything. Depends on your sound system and libraries.

Tough shit if you don't like Ubuntu. I do. That's all thats counts.

This would play hell with atheism. Would point to something larger than our individual selves.

Of course, you would then get atheist apologetics, saying this universal consciousness sprang from stellar shit.

Actually, I prefer Suse, it's smaller and has better legacy support as well as nice flavors. Works well with Xfce and doesn't mess up when running Blender every 5 minutes like Ubuntu does. Ubuntu's choices for memory management force many people to add in other repo systems to make the computer work well, that's not a "well maintained" repo/system.

As for Totem, it's great for quick video tests, but the interface is lacking, MPlayer's interface, called SMPlayer, is far superior in that it offers more control and tweaking.

Back in “the day”... on the one hand... things were simpler... because there were fewer choices to be made.

On the other hand... the choices that were available were geared for enthusiasts, by enthusiasts.

Today... things are just the opposite. That's one way of looking at it, anyhow.
Ubuntu is well maintained and does about everything out of the box. Just a few tweaks is all it needs. The Unity is something they are going to for commercial purposes, some lens thing to search for specific products. Ubuntu wants to wind up on other platforms, too. I do like the window closing on the left once I got used to it.
Again... Ubuntu's a fine distro. You'll not hear me say anything bad about it.

On this little T61 (close to 6 years old now), Fedora 7 was my OS of choice... for the reason you point out with Ubuntu >>> With a little tweaking here and there, everything worked. F7 stayed on it for 5 years... 3 years after that version reached EOL. Fedora 17 works out of the box... everything... albeit a bit sluggishly. >>> Too much bloat. I have heat issues to contend with and F17 doesn't help. The laptop's been brought back from literal death 3 times now. I think I told ya about it when it happened the first time. >>> Mobo reflow in kitchen oven. I'm really attached to this laptop... kinda like a doctor to a patient.

Slackware's actually already installed on a separate partition... it just isn't getting used. I need to take a day or two and make the cross-over.
Kubuntu eats up too much resources with that KDE fo me. Too much like Windows. I like the simplicity of Gnome. I LOVE Totem. Plays everything, and I like Goom. Just wish I could come up with a file script to enqueue that survives release changes.[QUOTE]

I like a KDE for its “tweakablity”. I also like several of the resource friendly desktop environments >>> LXDE, XFCE, Fluxbox, etc.

The fact that it (KDE) is similar to Windows is the reason Kubuntu is recommended for those wanting something besides Windows. Most of the people I install it for are really just looking for a dependable way to access the Web, check email, office apps, etc. It works well to those ends provided the machines aren't antiquated.

Haven't messed with Totem too much. If it works, stick with it. For me, it's VLC.

[QUOTE]OS/2 was my favorite system. You could customize the hell out of that, all built in. But it died. No support.[QUOTE]

It's a shame too. I have a copy of OS/2 Warp 3, floppy disks, that's never even been installed.

I'm getting there myself. But, just imagine if Linux didn't exist and there was nothing to play with.
