    How does one search this forum by poster?
    I've been getting these New Friend Requests but I don't make friends that easily. I would at least like to see what the person has been posting on this site. The search functions on this never find anything. Why not??? (Try searching for anyone but yourself and see).

    RE: Honeycomb anyone ?

[/quote] It is unlikely someone here is involved in it. It is a fork of a fork of Linux. There is little benefit flowing back to Linux, and the development environment is extremely Java-centric.

This is usually for legal or ideological reasons, or both.

    RE: Trouble with Ubuntu
    The linux drivers for NVIDIA's integrated graphics tends to lag, even for the proprietary drivers (that do not come with the bootable CD). Sometimes, its just the combination with the monitor, so try swapping in another monitor. The easiest solution is to just stick any old ATI graphic card in the machine (presuming its not a laptop).
