Ask Slashdot: Why Aren't You Running KDE?

Master Bait Re:fwiw (818 comments)

Old 3.5 Kmail -> mbox,

New Kmail -> akonadi -> neopunk -> mysql -> database.

It's simply a stupid waste of electrons. Just think of the extra carbon footprint if KDE was running 1 billion computers.

Choosing a Personal Printer For the Long Haul

Master Bait Re:Your current printer. (557 comments)

I used to have a 1200dpi Lexmark printer I had bought new sometime around 1994. It was PostScreipt and I eventually setup Ghostscript on the server to do the rendering and shoot out the resulting bitmap to the printer. That made it so much faster, that I gave it an extra couple of years of service before I sprung for a new $129 Samsung ML-2570 PS printer.

Apple's Macworld Looking To Corporate Users

Master Bait Re:Apple won't go anywhere unless (287 comments)

Shops that embraced Active Directory and Outlook and the rest of Microsoft's proprietary stuff are stuck with Microsoft. Sorry.

Master Bait Master Bait writes  |  more than 11 years ago In two years, when I can get one for $75 or so, I'll be getting a single Opteron. This Fall will bring me a $75 Barton 2500+.

Seems as though this Opteron architecture will commoditize the 4 and 8-way space. Good competition for the pathetic 2.0ghz XeonMP which sells now for about $3,500 apiece. What a joke!

We have $20,000 Xeon 4-ways, $35,000 4-way Itanics and $40,000 4-way SPARCs.

By this time next year, how will the carnage look?


I Like StarOffice

Master Bait Master Bait writes  |  more than 13 years ago And need to fire it up if I want to post or even read on Slashdot. I'm still using KDE/Konquerer 2.0.1 and for some reason, Slashdot poops out bigtime. Seems most of the SO naysayers are worried about 'converting' Word files. How come they don't complain when Micros**t comes out with a new version of their monster and it doesn't convert well? THey live with it.


AT&T is Poised to Poised to Take Over Excite@home...

Master Bait Master Bait writes  |  more than 13 years ago for a song. They won't put another penny into @home because they stand to gain all their subscribers and last-mile infrastructure if @home defaults and files Chapter 11. We'll see what happens Friday.

They survived!


I think AMD is having Yield Problems

Master Bait Master Bait writes  |  more than 13 years ago With their Palominos. They keep pushing back the intro date for the 1.5ghz Athlon 4. Now they say October.

Some pundits say it is because AMD is facing a capacity crunch, but if that was so, they wouldn't need to lower their prices so drastically. Imaging a 1.4 Athlon for only $115.
