    This is the goods: https://www.nomachine.com Need a RDP-style application for Linux? Don't want to fight with XRDP and VNC? This thing takes all of 5 minutes to install and works freakin' great. The sever was just basically unpack the tarball and run the installer, the OSX app just had me...

    Specifically Ubuntu? I've got it installed on my dumbshit nephew's computer, however I have no idea how well it'll run, in comparison to how it ran on his machine when it was Windows 7 (which he infected to high heaven). Hopefully it's fine, because I'm tired of cleaning up his mess on Windows...

    My company runs a few Certificate Authorities for the government that conform to some pretty stringent security standards. Since the standards were written a decade ago, they specifically refer to Solaris and the BSM (Basic Security Module). Solaris is a slowly dying OS at this point--Oracle...

    So, my company has been using Slicehost for a Linux VM that we use for external monitoring. It runs around $40 a month, and was running great, until Rackspace bought them. Now, we've had nothing but network connectivity issues, kernel panics, etc. Can someone recommend a good hosting company...

    I went to upload some new music to my Cloud Player and it told me that it didn't support my OS :mad: I am thinking of switching to Dropbox for music...they promise compatibility with all the things and have been great for my other files. Also, Ubuntu One is a slow buggy mess.

    So, Backtrack 5 is releasing within the next day. I've been using Backtrack since version 2, somehow missed 3 altogether, and have been using the hell out of 4 lately. Changes include: 32 bit and 64 bit architectures ISOs already set up for each of the Gnome, KDE, and Fluxbox desktop...

    I would like to create a CD that installs my current Linux Mint setup. I've never done this before, so I'm not sure if there is an easy tool available to do this, or if I should .tar.gz it up and find/build an installer script and all that myself. I dig the setup that I have, and I would like...

    I want to experiment with creating my own linux operating system from scratch. (For fun, and learning, and stuff). Would I encounter any major issues if I used a VM to do this?

    ...in VirtualBox. Seems pretty sweet so far. I really like the LXDE/Openbox combo. Very clean, very lightweight. Linux Mint itself did not include a ton of "fluff" that I'd have to go through and delete. The only thing I'm not liking so far is the horrid fucking notification OSD popups....All...
  17. Music: Recording Studio
    So before I get to deep into recording again, how is recording with Linux(ubunutu)? Anybody done it? Reason being, I'm absolutely fucking tired of windows and I can't afford a mac. The only real issue I have is that I'm using to using Cubase, Guitar Rig, Amplitube and FL Studio. Are there...

    What does your setup look like? For example, what distro do you use? What software do you use for productivity (office,recording,etc)? What is your favorite method for running Windows apps (different flavors of wine)? etc. It's been a while since I've run linux on the desktop exclusively, so...
