[News] GNU/Linux Saves the Presentation When Windows Collapses

Hash: SHA1

Ubuntu Linux Boot CD - don’t leave home without it

,----[ Quote ] 
| Come presentation time his Powerpoint slides didn’t display properly. After 
| each click he had to wait up to 30 seconds for the next slide to appear. Very 
| disconcerting to him and his audience. He tried putting the setting back to 
| the way they were, but to no avail.   
| If he had a Ubuntu boot CD with him, he could have recovered this situation 
| in about 2 minutes. All he had to do was insert the boot CD in the CD drive, 
| ensure that his notebook’s BIOS was set to boot from CD, then go for it.

| business applications, like my co-workers and myself, or getting ready to 
| ship off to school.

Parking with Windows

| Windows.
| One can't even park anymore without getting the Blue Screen of Death.
| Incidentally, the parking attendant couldn't figure out why I wanted to take 
| a picture of the payment machine. For my part, I couldn't figure out why he  
| wasn't running a real operating system. :-) 


Who Knew... [Musical instruments crash]

| Who knew that even musical instruments could experience Microsoft’s Blue 
| Screen of Death. I didn’t until I went to Seattle’s Experience Music Project 
| last week.  


Trouble Shooting The Blue Screen of Death

,----[ Quote ]
| Fortunately since Windows 2000 this has become less of a common occurrence, 
| or so it seemed. Working late last night at a client’s office on a handful 
| of problems already, Windows Vista (Brand new machine, only a week old) 
| decided to show me otherwise. While copying some vital files to the 
| machine, it restarted windows. After a rebooting to the login screen, 
| it then repeated the process of halting and restarted, nice!


Would You put Your Life in Vista's Hands?

,----[ Quote ]
| While on a visit in Romania, where Bill Gates participated in the 
| celebration of 10 years since the Microsoft branch has been running 
| there, and the launch of Vista, declared that, with the right amount
| of administration, the new Vista could run life support systems in 
| hospitals.
