I’ve been a Gnome user ever I started using Linux a little over 2 years ago.
Sure I’ve flirted with other WM and DE but Gnome always stayed my favorite.
When KDE 4 came out it looked promising but I was not impressed with it at all.
It was slow, had lots of bugs and not much going for it really besides it’s looks.
KDE 4.1 was more of the same, still not impressed.
That all changed when version 4.2 came out a little while ago.
I now use KDE 4.2 and haven’t looked back.
Why? Keep reading.
A lot has happened since Firefox 3 launched and other browsers were catching up to the all powerfull open source browser, but it’s back.
Firefox 3.1 beta 2 is out and boy it’s fast.
Tab switching is faster and it has “private browsing”, read more about the new features here.
Download the beta here.
If you need help installing, keep reading.
After a long beta period Flash player 10 finally hit it’s final version.
And this time the folks at Adobe were so kind to make a .deb file for Ubuntu.
Download the .deb here.
Before installing it, run this command in a terminal (applications -> accessories -> terminal)
sudo apt-get remove libflash-mozplugin libflashsupport flashplugin-nonfree
Remove the libflashplayer.so file in /home/username/.mozilla/plugin.
Now double click the .deb file to install Flash player 10.
Flash player 10 is in the Ubuntu 8.10 repo’s now. Together with the better ATI drivers the performance is impeccable for me now.
