Buy the phone for the hardware and replace the launcher. Replacing TouchWiz with Apex works fine.

By 2045 'The Top Species Will No Longer Be Humans,' and That Could Be a Problem

diebels Re:More leisure time? (564 comments)

Of course, you can add solids and change the temperature or pressure. However that doesn't change the fact that the glass remains full. Even in a vacuum chamber the glass can keep containing low density gas.

diebels Re:More leisure time? (564 comments)

The glass is always full. When you insert liquid into the glass you displace some of the gas, but the glass remains full of fluid.

Ubuntu Gnome Seeking Long Term Support Status

diebels Re:I want Ubuntu 8.04 back. (26 comments)

I haven't managed to like running gnome3 or unity on non touch screens computers, and the classic session does not seem very classic. Gnome2 is still alive and well though (not broken just yet), I have it running here with some useful compiz effects. Just install gnome-session-flashback and some extras for compiz; compizconfig-settings-manager, compiz-gnome, compiz-plugins-extra, and you're good to go.

Nvidia Removed Linux Driver Feature For Feature Parity With Windows

diebels Re:Removing feature for parity with another platfo (237 comments)

Anyway, if i'm right, optimus support under linux is not on par with windows. Are you nvidia going to fix optimus on linux, or "for feature parity" are you going to make the optimus support worse on windows too?

Directly quoting someone from that thread because this was exactly what I was thinking of.

That's a bug, not a feature :-p

Looks like 2012 was the year of Linux on the phone then.
Is Linux on my Android phone? The terminal emulator app seems to think so:

Linux localhost 3.0.31-cyanogenmod-g7556d0b #1 SMP PREEMPT Tue Nov 13 06:45:01 PST 2012 armv7l GNU/Linux

The Pirate Bay Files Suit Against Big Media

diebels Re:legality (422 comments)

It's privating. And it's legal in Norway as well as Sweden. Sharing copyrighted and Digital Restricted Management content with friends, family, Linux, libdvdcss2 and ipod is all legal in a sane part of the world.
