    You just bought a uk keyboard, well done
    EDIT: Are the oreos ok?


    No they did not. It is actually the standard QWERTY layout. Above someone posted the ANSI layout what the OP is probably used to.

    Buy a new keyboard they are cheap expensive keyboards for most people are just have a bunch of gimmicks.

    If you are expecting to use the GUI then I would recommend against Ubuntu, some of its derivatives that run LXDE would be fine. Use 14.04 there should be no problems with it.

    CMD -> ipconfig /all

    Check if DHCP is assigning an IP address for the NIC in use. If it's a 169.x.x.x address, DHCP isn't working, otherwise the default gateway may be wrong or there may be conflicting IPs on the network.


    Not that you should ever have that address an internal network but whole 169.0.0.0/8 block is not reserved for APIPA only the 169.254.0.0/16 block is.

    posted a message on If you could design and build your own case, what would it be?
    I got a friend who has been working on a wooden case for a while now I guess I can see the appeal of it.

    Would love just a simple black case lots of fans ect. If I was wanting a case to show off a one with old looking metal and rust on it built correctly might be cool.

    Dual channels allows you to use two channels to access memory at the same time. It increases bandwidth by enabling you to access both sticks at the same time.

    posted a message on Best free start menu replacement for win8?
    There is really no reason to replace the startmenu. Most replacements for it I have seen don't work properly and do not bring the Windows 7 style interface back.

    I recommend getting used to it having everything hidden in menus is really not a good UI design. The Modern UI for the Win8 start screen I can actually access a number of software very quickly without looking in menus.

    posted a message on What Internet Browser do u use?
    Firefox for work related things all others except IE have no way to be managed for a public user in the capacity I want.
    Personal use it syncs with my phone properly and I have all the addons I want on mobile.

    IE is great because it can be centrally managed using group policy. Firefox I use for addons and I trust Mozilla not to spy on me more so then Google.

    posted a message on If you could own any phone for free, what would it be?
    My current phone I have no reason to want anything else. If Moto makes a new MotoX with at least 64gb of storage and a better screen then the S4 would be the only thing I could consider over my S4.

    I thought the Pi version was written in C++?


    Heck if I know I just know there should be no reason a person couldn't get the full desktop version running on it and assumed they were talking about that.

    But they did take time to make it for rasberry PI

    What about raspberry PI. I bet that dident have java, or OpenGL


    There is a Java virtual machine for ARM processors and Rasberry Pi can run a full Linux distro that OpenJDK can be installed on it and it supports OpenGL.

    With how small it is I can only assume it will not work for the majority of people who would even want to use it.
    Upgrade your computer if it is really too much for you grab a light weight Linux distro Xubuntu or Lubuntu should do just fine if you really want to keep using an outdated computer. That or just run WinXP I doubt most of you are doing anything on your computers that would be a big deal if lost due to malware.

    nah, I'll just wait for some computer genius's to come along and outsmart all of you.


    Like who the FM you seem to worship, the fact you and other rely on people like FM to form opinions on things for you shows exactly why this section went down hill.

    Do you think we are wrong if so why?

    +1 for linux and win 7. win 7 is what i have on my main. linux is a good os


    If you are going to tell people to switch to Linux at least bother to name a distro.

    Why do you think this distro is a proper replacement for WinXp and how you expect people still on WinXp to switch when the vast majority are less tech savy persons or business who simply can't.
