(19:03) ( scott_ev) My personal experience using it has been great and I've learned quite a bit while exploring 
                    this new way of helping other Ubuntu users. My main focus is Spanish and English. I've asked my 
                    local team members to take a look at this but I don't expect much activity before school is 
                    back :D Right now in summer most everyone I know here in Quebec is out catching some sun.

(19:04) ( scott_ev) Why Ubuntu Linux Is a Good Business Choice
(19:04) ( scott_ev) Ken Hess, PC World discusses Ubuntu as a good business choice.
(19:04) ( scott_ev) One of those choices is Ubuntu Linux, a greatly enhanced Debian-based Linux distribution that 
                    installs easily, has the familiar Windows look and feel, and operates well on older hardware 
                    (expensive upgrade not required). Linux fans tout the positive attributes, often at high 
                    decibel levels, of Ubuntu Linux, which is perhaps the world's most popular Linux distribution. 
                    But, is it business worthy?

(19:05) ( scott_ev) toddc is giving one away this week
(19:06) ( scott_ev) haha...not
(19:06) ( scott_ev) Farhad Manjoo discusses how Ubuntu can be used on older hardware - Well, I think they've done 
                    it. I made a second foray onto Ubuntu's shores a week ago, and so far, I like it quite a bit. 
                    The OS has progressed a great deal since I last checked in (in 2008 I installed version 8.04; 
                    now I'm running version 10.04). I found Ubuntu quick to install, speedy to do pretty much 
                    everything, and, thankfully, very easy to figure out. There were so
(19:06) ( scott_ev) dit all of that make it through?
(19:06) ( soldats) seems like it did
(19:06) ( toddc) k
(19:07) ( scott_ev) nice
(19:07) ( Doorman352) Lost you are There were so
(19:07) ( scott_ev) There were some rough edges; for instance, Ubuntu's designers ought to make some of its error 
                    messages more comprehensible to newbies. While installing Skype, I was informed that a "later 
                    version is available in a software channel. You are strongly advised to install the version 
                    from the software channel, since it is usually better supported." I'm pretty sure that could 
                    have been translated to, "Click 'Next' to install a newer version 
(19:07) ( scott_ev) how abouyt that?
(19:08) ( Doorman352) newer version
(19:08) ( scott_ev) dealing with it.
(19:08) ( Doorman352) buffer overflow.....
(19:08) ( soldats) i think it should still say what it says but give the option to auto install with a button 
                   making it easier for new peeps
(19:08) ( scott_ev) ok, I'll redo that paragraph in small pieces
(19:08) ( scott_ev) Farhad Manjoo discusses how Ubuntu can be used on older hardware - Well, I think they've done 
                    it. I made a second foray onto Ubuntu's shores a week ago, and so far, I like it quite a bit. 
                    The OS has progressed a great deal since I last checked in (in 2008 I installed version 8.04; 
                    now I'm running version 10.04).
(19:09) ( scott_ev) I found Ubuntu quick to install, speedy to do pretty much everything, and, thankfully, very 
                    easy to figure out. There were some rough edges; for instance, Ubuntu's designers ought to make 
                    some of its error messages more comprehensible to newbies. While installing Skype, I was 
                    informed that a "later version is available in a software channel.
(19:09) ( scott_ev) You are strongly advised to install the version from the software channel, since it is usually 
                    better supported." I'm pretty sure that could have been translated to, "Click 'Next' to install 
                    a newer version of Skype."
(19:09) ( scott_ev) For the most part, though, Ubuntu has broken free of technical mumbo jumbo, and if you've got a 
                    little bit of tech savvy, you'll have no problem dealing with it.
(19:09) ( scott_ev) how was that?
(19:09) ( Doorman352) perect
(19:09) ( soldats) way better
(19:09) ( Doorman352) unlike my typing
(19:10) ( scott_ev) good
(19:10) ( scott_ev) So Ubuntu is good. But why should you use it?  Farhad Manjoo continues with - "To me, it's the 
                    perfect way to give an aging Windows PC new life." Want to learn more about this writers

(19:11) ( scott_ev) Using ALSA to Control Linux Audio
(19:11) ( scott_ev) Carla Shroder discusses Using ALSA - Last week I wrote how to configure PulseAudio on Ubuntu so 
                    you could easily stop and start it when you wanted to, instead of being stuck with it being on 
                    all the time, or having to remove it just to get it out of your way.
(19:11) ( scott_ev) Today I'm going to show how to use ALSA, which has been the default Linux audio subsystem for 
                    many years. ALSA has its limitations, but it's perfectly fine for controlling both playback and 
                    recording volume.

(19:12) ( scott_ev) Try Out Opera Mini In Ubuntu
(19:12) ( scott_ev) Anurag Upadhaya discusses how to run Opera Mini in Ubuntu - You must have seen plenty of ways 
                    to run Opera Mini in Windows XP or Windows 7 (yes, we are not talking about mobiles here).
(19:12) ( scott_ev) Want to experience the same thing on Ubuntu? The process to run it on Windows and Ubuntu is 
                    almost same with the same software application required for emulation, but still we will take 
                    you through the required steps.

                         work elsewhere
