Have you ever seen the disbelief on Windows users faces when you tell them there aren't any viruses for Linux? They're so used to it, they think it's completely natural for an operating system to have viruses. But it's not. The question isn't why Ubuntu doesn't have the same default keyboard

Hello everyone. There are a few games that comes with the default Ubuntu install, mosly card games and snakes. I was thinking that too could use an upgrade. Chromium is a really cool and addictive game, that is easy to play and has abit more graphics. With regards, Jo-Erlend Schinstad

Video to Accessories or System Tools though. Backing up data doesn't have anything to do with sound or video, even if it's possible to backup music too. Jo-Erlend Schinstad -- ubuntu-desktop mailing list ubuntu-desktop@lists.ubuntu.com https://lists.ubuntu.com/mailman/listinfo/ubuntu-desktop

time you log in. I see _no_ reason why we should have an application as default, that people doesn't use. We should have sensible defaults, not defaults that everyone has to replace when they first install the system. Jo-Erlend Schinstad -- ubuntu-desktop mailing list ubuntu-desktop

Well, I do see your point. However, the number of features isn't the most important aspect, I think. Many of the more modern clients have alot of different settings, that people also doesn't use. What I liked best about Transmission, was the small number of sensible configuration
