At last upgraded (re-installing) to Linux Mint 9. I wanted a clean install so I opted to take the backup manually and re-installed my official Toshiba Satellite Pro A300. Sadly so like the version 8, version 9 also didn't find my inbuilt Bluetooth adapter eventhough that doesn't bother me much. I will try may to recognise the adapter sometime may be. What I feel improved is the Software Manager which lets you install even Skype (which is not officially downloadable in UAE). It is a total make over which was very friendly and became more friendly now. It even has a rating system. I have installed OpenBVE which is a Train Simulation game which I liked and wanted to install on Linux Mint 8 but was not able to due to some library issues. My day to day official usage is mainly email and word/excel documents for which I use Evolution email client and OpenOffice.org. I can use TaskJuggler and Planner for project management. It is a Friday (holiday for US GCCians) and wife is cribbing, so I will put more details later.
Tell the world's governments you support a free and open web at http://www.google.com/ takeaction . Starting December 3rd, the world's governments are meeting behind closed doors at the ITU to discuss the future of the Internet. Some governments want to use this meeting in Dubai to increase censorship and regulate the Internet. Tell the world's governments you support a free and open web at http://www.google.com/ takeaction . Then spread the word with #freeandopen. It is ours and it is free. A free and open world depends on a free and open web. And a free and open web depends on me.
