GNOME Yelp makes for a great GTK+ 3 man page reader!

Press <Ctrl>+L and use the URI format: man:[page_name]
Or you could hit <Alt>+F2 and type: yelp man:[page_name]

Nice one. Character encoding seems off, though. I use
man -Hfirefox [man-page]
instead.

Windows just failed hard for me today...
I have a Radeon HD 6700 series graphics card. It has three outputs. On Linux I can use triple monitor setup beautifully, out of the box. On Windows, I went through the painful process of installing it and all the drivers for my rig before discovering you can only enable two outputs at a time. WTF?

After hours of scouring the internet and asking on forums, turns out I need to fork out money on an "active display port adapter". My card doesn't even have a display port!!!

+Michael Heyns There is a difference between needing an adapter and it not being supported. Either way, the limitation isn't the fault of Windows. If anything, it is the fault of AMD/ATI.

Gnome-Disks claims SMART is unavailable for device. Smartmontools disagrees... Worth reporting?

+Sunny Sigara Wrong: gnome-disk-utility still has the SMART dialog. Just press Ctrl + S.

+AMD I have been using three monitors beautifully, out of the box and with Catalyst drivers, on Linux for years. Windows will only allow two outputs at a time. My HD 6700 series card does not have a Display Port output. How can I get all three to work in Windows. Please resond.

When somebody tries to tell you Linux is invulnerable or immune to viruses, show them this. Jellyfish is a rootkit malware that runs off your GPU.

However, Linux makes it extremely difficult for malware to propegate and spread on its own. Be careful which scripts you run, kiddies. And don't use sudo unless you know what you are doing!

BTW, the authors of the code have started working on Windows and Mac ports too.
Proof-of-concept malware may pave the way for future in-the-wild attacks.

Events of late regarding the ownership of names.. really have altered my perspective. If the word didn't have so many bad connotations then I would say it had radicalised my views on freedom.

I guess it comes down to something quite simple, how do you feel when the shoe is on the other foot? I've definitely worn and lost that shoe now.

Witnessing first hand how broken the system is really is motivation enough. The question becomes simple: How do I work towards entirely libre solutions? My single dependency of any encumbered format, etc, revolves entirely around multimedia. That's a large segment to tackle..
