Tom's Hardware Dissects Ubuntu 11.4's Interface and Performance

ExKoopaTroopa give Canonical a chance for changing things up (272 comments)

( sorry for repeat, did not mean to post as anon ) I consider myself to be a power user ( been running Ubuntu since dapper, installed and run it on many desktops, laptops, netbooks and even a few servers ), and am a developer by trade. I was highly skeptical at first, ready to switch to Mint when I first heard that Unity was going to be the default, but just like the "window buttons on the left-gate" of the previous version I was willing to give Canonical a chance. I'll admit the first hours were an exercise in frustration, mostly due to having to unlearn many old habits. The one thing I did to alleviate that frustration was to prevent the launcher from auto-hiding. After a couple of days of daily use I realised that it had clicked for me, and now I wouldn't go back. Looking forward to see more possibilities of customisation in the future, but as is, I find that Unity really works.

Largest-Known Planet Befuddles Scientists

ExKoopaTroopa Re:Language is a funny thing (385 comments)

Beware the pedant brigade ... Although your interpretation is correct, as a French speaker I will add that "fort" has other meanings, including indicating a person has a large build ("il est assez fort" ~= "he is quite large", but depending on the context it could mean "he is quite strong"). This would be even more appropriate, however the whole joke falls flat because in French a "four" is an oven
