13.0.782.14 Beta (Jun 13, 2011)
More convincing than previous releases. Still feels like "something" is missing but overall a good, no-frills web browser.
11.10 (Oneiric Ocelot) Alpha 1 (Jun 13, 2011)
Unity as desktop manager...
I would have rated 5 stars if they marketed it as an ad to persuade users to switch to Linux Mint!

Can't stand it. Too invasive, and it's just insane organizing own music files in that way.
4.5.3 (Jan 24, 2011)
KDE 4 (4.5.3 too) is such a disaster, a miserable failure, a bloody mess, a death blow to GNU/Linux community in the wider sense (and to credibility of KDE 3) that no one should never, ever think to use or watch at it.
I bothered to use it on various distributions, from earlier 4.0 to now, it was simply disgusting.
It completely mises the point to be usable, even if compared to Windows 3.11's desktop environment.
It is all a matter of bells and whistles, cpu-wasting effects, with no real usability.
Plus, it is still unstable and slow.
Please KDE team, KILL the 4 line and release a KDE 5 at least on par with Windows 3.11 NOW!

I love PHP, so I cannot be neutral... but now 5.x rocks.

And he did not even took in account the best advice: free himself from Google AdSense revenue!
What's the point in discussing about being able to live without Google on a tech blog fueled by Google AdSense? (hint: the point is in generating page views...)
In first place give to charity all the money you get from Google if you want to try how is it life without Google.

5.3.3 (Jun 20, 2011 - 6:52 AM)
It's more like a race where there is no real end line.
You may sprint and stay ahead competitors for a while or for years, but you are never done.
Tomorrow it can be the day you are last or out of business, but today you can win being ahead and selling more than others.
iPad has sold a lot, generated a lot of revenue, generated even more hype and return of investiment in terms of image and mediatic exposure for Apple, and in this sense is already a winner.
But tomorrow there will be new consumers, and old consumers replacing old units, and iPad will need to stay ahead competitors again in terms of tecnology, price and image in order to win again, or else tomorrow will have a different winner.

iPad has already won important battles and brought big cash to Cupertino.
I don't see market as a war, it does not have a clear end as even if your name is MS and you dominate a segment of the market for 15 years you still have to whatch your back and try to run after newcomers that comes out of the blue with great ideas that exposes your products and strategies to critics (security, not admin by default > Linux / apps marketplace > Apple / ARM & tablets > Apple, Android / better integration with the web services, online advertising > BigG).
iPad was a winner in those years, Android is an interesting alternative, Win8 is a possible future opponent: it is never done for the winner.

If you really want to evaluate how your life will be without Google there is no need to look to small things like Android, Chrome, GMail etc.
Start from what really sums up: just say to BetaNews "Pay me as you were not indexed on Google, so you have maybe 1/2 of the page views, and you have no revenue from Google Adsense and its partners"
Then, go out and see if you can buy the same amount of bread in the supermarket.
If you are happier in this way, then you can also start to sandpaper away smaller things like YouTube, GNews and so on and keep us informed what your "as a webmaster of the 90s" life experiment goes.
