snergebut, like I said, the only thing I do on windows is gaming, I barely browse for game patches and such ...
gotta love feisty
pollyosnerge: I've started to get my uncle and his family to browse in ubuntu/linux for the most part.
snerge: If I could find a lexmark driver for them they would hardly have the need for windows
snergeyeah, so you don't have to clean spyware every month :P
and/or format
pvhshi question about wine. i have version 0.9.5, i need to upgrade to the latest, but i need to save all configs. im a noob. somebody else told me to do cp ~/.wine ~/.wine.backup and then upgrade and then rename the backup as ~/.wine.
pollyosnerge: I had to wipe the entire system for them. I ran anti-spyware and the count was in high and then a virus scan over 150 infections.
pvhsit would be a problem if my programs stopped workign with a newer version of wine.
snergepvhs: I don't think upgrading wine make you lose your settings, but yes, you can backup ~/.wine and restore it only if needed .....
pollyopvhs: I would imagine it that it would have to be a major upgrade to break the settings in wine. A backup of settins is always suggested when upgrading anything.
pvhssnerg: thanx. it just worries me, because im running breezy. i need to update. but i really cant right now. but i need to update wine. and sometimes my apt-get installations dont work quite right...so yea.
snergepvhs: like pollyo said, a backup is always a good thing
pvhsok
thanx
snergeI wish I would backup stuff more often myself ...
haha
pvhslol
pollyosnerge: Isn't it one of those do as I say not what I do type of things. <grin>

pvhsyea
i like the portage
pollyoI'm not very familiar with the various distros.
snergebut I like apt-get better (nothing scientific her, personnal opinion)
here
pvhsah
pollyo(K)ubuntu is the only modern distro I've used. (Last time I looked at Linux was about 10 or more years ago)
snergeI've had less problem with apt-get than portage but I haven't used gentoo in at least a year
pollyo: running feisty ?
pollyosnerge: Yes. I'm very happy with it so far as well. I installed RC5 if I recall correctly.
snergek

pollyosnerge: I've had it running a few days shy of a month.
pvhsgrr
