I don’t know where I’ve been, but I missed this great writeup on Coding Sanity: Review:WINDOWS XP . I also upgraded to XP. I may try Vista again if I get a beefier machine. — and that’s a sad commentary on the amount of hardware you need to run just an OS!!
Okay.. I’ve come to the decision that I’m going to be using MS Live Writer for my main blogging tool. It seems to have all of the features I’m looking for – except for being cross-platform. No worries, I came up with a game plan that would allow me to use Ubuntu as my main OS and still use Live Writer.
Ran into an interesting problem today on my Gusty Gibbon installation that I thought was important to share. I saw an article on Virtualbox software and I thought I’d give it a try. So the first thing I always do when installing something on Ubuntu is to see if there is an official package for the software in the repos by using Synaptic Manager. Synaptic Manager allowed me to log into the interface, but then core dumped. Ugh!
