Steve Jobs To Keynote WWDC iPhone Announcement

g00set Re:Great. :( (484 comments)

Jobs is going to loose the smart phone wars just like he lost the PC wars.

I don't think Apple believes this needs to be a "war" where victory is determined by market share. They have nice margins, continuous growth year over year and plenty cash the bank ($50 Billion USD) all with a relatively small market share.

IMO Apple eats their own dog food and is going to continue making devices it wants to make, which at the moment aligns nicely with a profitable set of established and satisfied customers.

Meteor Spotted Yesterday Over Midwestern United States

The video clearly gives "balanced coverage" (poke at the advertisement) of the meteor event. Not sure how to describe the looping ;)

Why Slackware Still Matters

g00set Slackware for the Web surfer (313 comments)

A long time friend of mine needed a computer for web surfing/shopping and email. Specifically a computer connected to the *Internet*. The one she had was a 600 Mhz eMachine from college, 64MB RAM, WindowsME.

I wanted to help her out but did not want to do computer support. I have used Slackware almost exclusively since switching to Linux in 2000 so I loaded 9.1 onto her old machine, added 128MB RAM, and a $70 USD GeForce video card from BestBuy.

The machine ran Gnome/Firefox directly connected to the Internet for 190 days before she moved. It currently connects to wireless router via a Linksys Gamers adapter (recommended by the way if you desire a OS and hardware independent device). Photos are also now loaded with gPhoto
