Re: good morning, good night

Yes, it is May, so my seasonal allergies (hayfever) are kicking in as well. Typically lasts until about the first or second week of July. The Willamette Valley is the grass seed capitol of the world, so it can be hell for hayfever here. Looks like a great weekend ahead, though. Sunshine and low 80s°...

Re: IBM/Lenovo ThinkPads

Received the T420 yesterday. Booted it up just fine, poked around Win 7 for a bit, discovered that the DVD drive doesn't work. No big deal, install from thumb drive. Rebooted, and Win 7 decided to auto-update itself, which resulted in Win 7 being hosed. Haha, oh yeah, there's a reason I don't use Wi...

Re: IBM/Lenovo ThinkPads

I just grabbed this very clean T420 for $150. The Windows 7 installation, however, won't last past the first hour in my hands. :)

Re: bones

OK, I admit it. I have become an unabashed fan of cinnamon since using it with Debian, and now Slackware. For a full-featured DE, it is my new choice.

Happy Walpurgisnacht, my friends! :P

Re: good morning, good night

I heard that the rain in Spain falls mainly on the plains. ;)

Here in western Oregon, March really "came in like a lion and went out like a lamb." April has been a mix. Had some nice 70-80°F days last week, now back to normal April weather: 50-60°F with scattered showers.

Re: bones

Debian 8.4 with Cinnamon. Actually, I'm quite impressed. Everything is very smooth and fast, particularly with desktop effects turned off. Bunch of X apps running, including Iceweasel, Inkscape, and GIMP, and RAM usage at 500MB. Not too shabby.

Excellent choice, ivan. I'm keeping my eye on 400 series Thinkpads, too. Currently looking at T420 models.

EDIT: Running live dvd right now. Gnome3, ugh, but surprisingly light and responsive even still, except for Tor browser, which of course is slow everywhere, because security.

Finally got some fixes we were waiting for in this new kernel.
It's been almost a month since 14.2rc1 so we'll call this Slackware
14.2 release candidate 2. Almost there. Get in any last-minute
bug reports quickly. :-)

Re: Linux News
