I'm a geek who loves Linux. I do my best to help other Linux users, but oftentimes, I'm the one who needs help.

My personal favorite software:

  • Chromium
  • VLC
  • TrueCrypt
  • 7-Zip (or p7zip)

I've recently switched from Ubuntu to Arch Linux, and I'm absolutely loving it. I really appreciate the control it offers over your system - instead of trying to stop a user from installing software just because it doesn't have the "correct" license, it lets you decide what software you do or don't want on your system. (It's yours, after all.)

@Prarobo nope, no DNS involved at all.

comment What's the difference between Google Chrome and/or Chromium? What are the advantages/disadvantages to each?
Chromium may lack the built-in Flash/PDF, but since they run off NPAPI, if you extract them from Chrome, Chromium will happily use them after a bit of configuring. (On Windows, this doesn't matter a whole lot, but while Flash is stopping their Linux builds at 11.2, Google managed to convince Adobe to package updated versions with Chrome.) Anway, it's not a huge point, but I thought it worth noting since none of the answers mentioned it.

Just found out our connection is 6 Mbit. This makes the wireless adapters seem even wore pathetic.

Thanks! I thought I must have been doing something wrong; I didn't think to check the taskbar icon itself -_-
