A Linux LiveCD is indeed a very useful tool, but there are some things that it can't do to save a corrupt Windows partition that a proprietary tool can.  Sure, the latter costs money, but...  arrr....  ;)

Not that is an irrefutable argument...

That abused swastika. It was funny to still see them used in Japan for maps, to show the locations of temples and shrines.



Argumentation by graphic is an old and venerable tradition amongst those who would appeal to emotions rather than intellect, right brain rather than left brain.

From Slashdot -- Microsoft Tax Dodge At Issue In Washington State --

Quote
With Washington State facing a billion-dollar biennial budget deficit, the spotlight again shifts to Microsoft's software licensing office in Reno, Nevada.

"Although the majority of its software development is performed in Washington State, Microsoft records its estimated $18 billion in licensing revenue per year through a corporate office in Reno, Nevada where there is no licensing tax. Just by enforcing the state's existing tax law from 2008 onwards, we could reduce Washington's revenue shortfall by more than 70 percent. Alternately, we could pursue the entire $707 million from Microsoft's thirteen years of tax dodging and cover most of the expected deficit going forward."

We have discussed Microsoft's creative capitalism in the past.


The linux commies are out for blood...

From Slashdot -- Firefox To Replace Menus With Office Ribbon --

Quote
Mozilla has announced that its plans to bring Office 2007's Ribbon interface to Firefox, as it looks to tidy up its "dated" browser.  "Starting with Vista, and continuing with Windows 7, the menu bar is going away", notes Mozilla in its plans for revamping the Firefox user interface.  "[It will] be replaced with things like the Windows Explorer contextual strip, or the Office Ribbon, [which is] now in Paint and WordPad, too."  The change will also bring Windows' Aero Glass effects to the browser.




Firefox, indisputably the most successful open source user app in history, runs faster and looks better on Microsoft Windows.  :D

The aforementioned interface changes are slated for version 3.7 scheduled for around May-June 2010.

Opera was good back in dial-up days. Wait a hot second... That quote says that they are bringing the glass aero effect to firefox, yet it has always been there. I can wave my firefox browser around and see through the transluscent borders.

Opera is far better now.  In every way.

Here's my problem.  I have an Acer Power 1000 (piece of crap) that keeps shutting down for no known reason (blogs claim it's overheating, but I installed speedfan and watched the temps and that's not it) but I discovered it will run for days in safe mode without crashing.  I figured this was a good candidate for my return to Linux so I installed Ubuntu 9.x and it was working great.  Then I wanted to play a .flv file that I downloaded so I used the movie player and requested the correct plugin to run .flv files.  It went through the search and download and now my movie player is "dedicated" to playing this same video clip of a girl with a laptop (never downloaded it) and I cannot use it to stream GCN anymore.  Malware for Linux??  I thought this kind of hijacking is a windows exclusive...

Any ideas or do I just need to re-install Ubuntu?

Are you sure you were watching the right temps?  (CPU and not the HD.)  I'm not saying you're stupid, but there things happen.

Also, which Linux player were you using?  Ubuntu typically makes non-kosher codecs fairly easy (sudo apt-get install ubuntu-restricted-extras w32codecs mozilla-plugin-vlc etc).

Probably bad video memory.

I have to agree and wonder just what player has been "hijacked", xine?  vlc? mplayer? Aviplayer? Noatune? Dragonplayer?

If one is having trouble, does another work?

The Linux distribution environment is far more modular than Windows. It's very, very rarely required to "reinstall" when what you're having trouble with is an application. First I'd say see if another player is also effected, before we go getting extreme.
