Ubuntu 12.04 LTS Won't Fit On a CD

ani23 I am gonna start my own ask slashdot thread (488 comments)

Practically speaking and forgetting every small petty argument. What would it take to make ubuntu (Or any other linux Distro) a mainstream desktop OS. (Highlight DESKTOP) If you were in charge of it or could give it direction what would you do to make it work, accepted and profitable. I am hoping this will be an interesting exercise.

Authorities Seize Duqu's C&C Servers In Mumbai

ani23 Is this thing seriously not yet reverse engineered (53 comments)

or is the government just letting it thrive. I cannot imagine that software could be so self aware that upon being aware of its presence competent people cannot figure out a way to stop it once and for all or at least secure vulnerable systems from it.

Ask Slashdot: How Do You Choose a Windows Laptop?

ani23 Re:Latitude or Thinkpad (898 comments)

while i agreed with latitudes for a while some of the ones i have recently seen in our firm like the e5500 have sub par build quality. the lid has become wobbly already and many have run into multiple issues. not that thinkpads dont have these at all but latitudes just dont seem as solid as before.

Ask Slashdot: How Do You Choose a Windows Laptop?

ani23 Re:Nobody ever got fired for buying IBM (898 comments)

this.
when i buy windows i go lenovo. the machines are still built like tanks and work fantastic.
i actually convinced my boss to let me buy a lenovo in a company of dells. mind you others are or may be better but lenovo just works perfectly for me. my x61s has been running solid for 3 years now and i just got the x201 which should tide me through for another couple of years.
if in the ultra portable space try the x220 (to be released soon) otherwise try the T series. u cant go wrong with either option.
For the AC above. checkout the x220

Horizontal Scaling of SQL Databases?

ani23 Re:Relational stuff scales (222 comments)

Partitioning does complicate backups and HA/DR scenarios as the entire system is dependent on all machines being up and running. Also in most commercial db's (I know about db2) this feature takes you to the enterprise tier of software which is usually very expensive.

ani23 true (854 comments)
