Linux still nixes dualhead

  • Comment
I did my regular bi-annual Linux installation with the same result as all the last times

Ubuntu 8.10 installed perfectly on a single screen computer and failed miserably on another to cope with a second screen. Not just me but, judging by the pathetic, un-answered on-line pleas for help, rather a lot of other two-screen aficionados too. Hey, not fair, you say. The second screen is a 28inch jobbie. Sure, but the Evil Empire's Windows accepts it as normal. Normal as in 'effortless'.

And while we're talking alternatives, the EE's browser, Internet Explorer, is steadily losing ground to Mozilla's Firefox, which now claims a fifth of the browser market. My current post-Firefox browser, Google's new Chrome, is working just fine. But it's still a beta version and could do with some Firefox-style plug-ins such as RSS feeding.
