is that umbuntu? I think I might try that out. does it require a special theme installed to do that? where might I get umbuntu and the theme for it?
I have pclinuxos and if you want transparencey, this does an ok job of it. the problem is that it uses more of a screenshot of the desktop, which causes to not seem like as much depth because you cant see other windows behind it, but it is much nicer and faster than windows.
and it can run on almost any computer. like a windows 98 computer might be able to do it.
Torvalds was contemptuous of Microsoft's claims and has asked Redmond to name the patent infringements so that their veracity can be challenged and workarounds found.
"Naming them would either make it clear that Linux is not infringing at all (which is quite possible, especially if the patents are bad), or would make it possible to avoid infringing by coding around whatever silly thing they claim,"
"So the whole 'We have a list and we're not telling you' should tell you something. Don't you think that if Microsoft actually had some really foolproof patent, they'd just tell us and go, 'nyaah, nyaah, nyaah!'?"
