5 Linux features I miss when on Windows.

,----[ Quote ]
| Always on top
| The ability to keep any window on top of all 
| the others at any given time is a blessing 
| Linux that I am yet to see on Windows. It 
| comes in really handy when you need to have 
| more than one window visible to get things 
| done or when you want to be working but have 
| VLC lurking on the lower part of the screen.
| [...]
| Multiple desktops
| On a typical day, I have about 6 worksheets 
| open, with Google Chrome, Firefox, 
| Thunderbird, and some other folders open. On 
| Linux, in order not to clutter my desktop, I 
| just move some of he open windows to another 
| desktop and all is well with the world. 
| Windows? Well I do not know of any such 
| function.
| Reboot, Reboot and reboot
| Again, lots of applications I install tell me 
| to reboot before the installation will be 
| complete. If I make an installation of 5 such 
| programs, it means for 5 times I have to 
| reboot my system. Linux? Sudo-apt get install 
| XYZ and bam, its done.



Ubuntu Cola vs. Windows Cola

,----[ Quote ]
| I just found out that there's a brand of soft drink
| with the same name as the popular Linux distribution.
| For those of you who don't know this yet, let me
| introduce you to Ubuntu Cola. Also named after the
| African philosophy, it is made in the United Kingdom
| and with a key ingredient that is Fair Trade
| Certified.
| Ubuntu Cola's sugar came from Fairtrade worker
| cooperatives in Kasinthula, Malawi and Kaleya,
| Zambia. Farmers who are members of the Fairtrade
| cooperative at Kasinthula receive an income of $4 a
| day, which is really good considering that it is six
| times bigger than the national average income.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
