Azarbokey: I understand many people have different views about what a PC should be and, the vast majority were brainwashed by ms that a PC should run all errands in a home, cook, make coffee, play your fav music, movies.. and so on.
holycowwell sure but anyway i was just kinda talking about Ki11Bi11 poitn about ms being the big guy in the marketplace because of their ease of use and other justifications
which of course is bunk, they were never about that
solemnwarningHas anyone here tried running multiseat X.org using options like -sharevts?
holycowand still arent if you define your target audience well enough
abrotmansolemnwarning: tried asking #xorg ?
ki11bi11also their driver support
PingFloydif it was about ease of use, macs would be killing everyone
holycowwhat driver support?
microsoft HAS NO driver support
abrotmanPingFloyd: i don't find them easy to use
holycowits the manufacturers that write the drivers
solemnwarningI tried setting up multiseating between my normal dual-headed X11 and the TV out on my card, but X crashed I had to hard reset
holycowdamn dude c'mon
_kaiser_anyone know how to change the PATH for sudo?
Azarbokey: for me a PC is a PC and what am I expecting from it? help me write documents, help on calculations, access the net and read information, and interact with other people via forums, irc.. etc. And ofcourse play some games.
PingFloydabrotman: what's hard about plugging something in and flipping the switch?
solemnwarning#xorg should be name #even-deader-then-##posix
abrotman_kaiser_: you want it to match the user path or the root path ?
ki11bi11PingFloyd, thye would if they dropped their prices to compete with ms
abrotmanPingFloyd: it's not that easy for all tasks
_kaiser_abrotman: user
maddashanyone?
bokeyAzar, I like Saurbraten. what about you ?
abrotman_kaiser_: what is special about your user path ?
solemnwarning: #freedesktop ?
rahulfor me, a PC can do anything concievable
actionsolemnwarning tries it
solemnwarningtries it
PingFloydmaybe not the sort of the things that would interest you or I, but the stuff the average users cares about, it's no brainer with.
_kaiser_abrotman: well, I actually did change the root PATH, but sudo doesn't even use the same path as root, or the user
Azarbokey: Saurbraten mit was ?
_kaiser_abrotman: I just can't seem to find a way to modify the path for sudo
Azarmaddash: I am not sure if 2.6.19 is already packaged
bokeyAzar, cube. Can't r/w german.
Azarbokey: cube as in the game?
bokeyAzar, yeah.
holycowPingFloyd, you are right the purchasing decision is complicated overall. my interaction with the microsoft demographic is that its about two things: a) cheap and b) stick with what they know, learning is too much work
Azarbokey: I have some good games here that keep me happy , and if I want more I could get a console and play away to my heart's delight
abrotman_kaiser_: there are options for sudo
holycowPingFloyd, the neat thing is that its not a permanent state tho, you can modify it over time
