  • Re: Wine 1.1.14

    I believe the problem had to do with accessing the friends list/chat inside of a running game. I never used that feature myself, but I understand a lot of other people were missing it.

  • Wine 1.1.14

    I just saw that Wine 1.1.14 was released, and it looks like they fixed the Steam Friends feature! I'd install it, but I'm backing up my system at the moment so that I can test the latest Kubuntu alpha installer and rebuild everything as Ext4. www.winehq.org/announce/1.1.14

  • Re: Which Linux Do I Need?

    All linux distros let you type commands in terminals (the command prompt you're referring to). In Ubuntu, go to Accessories|Terminal from the Gnome menu. Alternatively, there's a cool feature where you can use one of the six full-screen terminal sessions that are automatically started in the...

  • RE: Windows 7 Up Close and Personal

    Calculator Plus looks like it was created with MS Paint and VisualCobol. Anyone that wants a really good calculator should try SpeedCrunch ( http://speedcrunch.org/en_US/index.html ), which is freely available for all OS's and is the default calculator in Kubuntu 9.04.

    [quote user="bob_on_the_cob"] Like Steam [/quote] Steam doesn't require IE6 to be installed under Wine. I have IE6 installed to a completely different prefix than the one I use for Steam.

  • RE: IE, Windows Market Share Take Hits in 2008

    When I was still using Windows, I preferred Opera (more compatible than FF), but that was quite a while back. On Linux, I prefer FF for 99.9% of things. I only have Opera installed for compatibility with the local ISD school-website (wife's a teacher), which insists that it won't work with Firefox...
