Last night, I wrote down the additional programs I had installed on my workstation, then blew away the Ubuntu 8.04 installation and installed Ubuntu 8.10. I did not touch any of the data on my home partition, though. The install was quick and easy. Then I had to reinstall all the extra programs I use. I never realized how many of those programs were huge.

Installing things like Tellico (which I use all the time) causes most of KDE to be installed. When I installed the Eclipse IDE, I got all of the Java SE JDK. When I installed the Lazarus IDE, I got all of the Free Pascal install. So, at 10pm last night I decided to call it quits. I will install the rest of the programs tonight. It all seems to be working fine, at any rate. More on this later.

Silly sign of the day:

Free/Open Source Software


Stupid Patent Tricks, Copyright and Other IP Nonsense

Liberty and Security/Our Rights

Other News/Public Stupidity
