I'm listening right now to Ronei Jorge's debut album. Great great music. You don't see a debut album this good everyday, so it's such a pleasure when you find one... can't stop listening to it! This band has a promissing future.

Everything you wanted to know about games in Linux but didn't know who to ask.

Soon they'll also be selling all videos on DVD.
BTW, you need Xiph.Org's codecs to watch it. I managed to watch it with VLC.
Sun, 4 Dec 2005 15:10:38 GMTdm rant
We Linux users are so proud of our multitask/multiuser system. We love having a separate /home partition for user data, and we love that each user in the system has his own little space in the system.
We put up telecenters where lots of people are able to remotely connect to a machine, and they all share the same server as if there were actually many computers running.
Now, why is it that we can't simply do:
It does seem like it's so simple, doesn't it? MacOSX and WinXP have this figured out years ago, and we multitask/multiuser Linux people can't do it.
No, the gdm "Start new session" doesn't count because you actually can only execute that before you lock the current session. You can't do it if you've locked the session already. Which totally misses the point of it, IMHO.
And yes, there are hacks. But they're just that, hacks... each one of them i've tried has some kind of annoying usability problem.
Phew... after spending hours playing with gdm/kdm/xdm/mdkkdm to get this working, i had to put this out, sorry.

Andrew, also take a look at Autopackage. These guys have been doing lots of research about all issues concerning distributable linux binaries, and what's great is they're producing lots of documentation, not to mention some nice tools to make your life easier.
And for crazy/interesting thoughts about software deployment in general, read this "dream" Mike Hearn had of having some kind of linux desktop platform.

Here's a new planet you should watch on your agregator: Planet Autopackage! Yay!
Thu, 17 Nov 2005 12:48:39 GMTTango and Oxygen
Apparently there are some nice similarities between Tango and Oxygen... both apply this outline to icons, and they seem to use almost the same color palette (Oxygen's palette has a few more colors). A very Firefox-ish thing. One interesting thing in Oxygen is that they have a "normal" color palette, and a "vibrant" color palette. Maybe that's an interesting concept.
Oh well, i just hope these folks shake hands and would create a unified (in one way or another) icon set for the free desktop.
Sat, 12 Nov 2005 14:31:22 GMTBuy CONISLI t-shirts
The folks that organized CONISLI are going through a financial situation. The company that was helping make it happen decided, few days before the event, that they wouldn't do it anymore.
So some folks took the responsability of making it happen, pay the bill. You can buy t-shirts and bags to help them. They need to sell 300 t-shirts and 100 bags to raise R$7.000.
