Ubuntu 10.10 Day 2


Like anything in life it was ups and downs today with the new operating system.? There was no chance to use during work today, but afterwards, I took some time to get the docking station and huge monitor working.? It actually worked for a while, but in the end, I could not get it to dock and undock with the big monitor on my desk at work.?

The ups- bluetooth support in Ubuntu far exceeds XP!? It just worked right out of the box, no new drivers to install, no updates - something that my XP configuration is still dealing with, and still not working right.?

We are making screencasts at work for Drupal education.? Tonight I installed 'recordmydesktop', and was able to start making screencasts in about 5 minutes.? That's a terrible name for a software program, but it's simple and it works well.? I made a 2:30 video in ogv format, and the file size is just 13 mb.? Too bad free formats are - well - free.? If nobody can be taken advantage of, these open platform technologies get left behind.? That's why you never heard of ogg theora!
