Todd I am sorry but I have found it hard to follow your opinion about it all. You have gone from preaching Linux to suddenly believing the web browser is the answer to prayers and now the latest inspiration comes from the "cloud". Apart from that I am not sure what the relevance of your link is? Is...

I have been working on a mobile website. You can find it http://www.toddrichardson.com/test/ . This route seems, to me, to be the wave of the future. Using your cell phone, you can access your cloud applications. Google and MSN both have mobile versions of their web portals and, in turn, their cloud...

There are two markets. In the PC market, Microsoft "Rocks". I love Microsoft. In the sub-PC market, however, Linux is shinning. What do I mean by sub-PC? Netbooks are a good example. The only Microsoft product that can run on their limited resources is Windows XP. This is true whether you look at De...

The rest of the world. . .

Though the United States doesn't seem to want to embrace Linux, I believe, that for our Church to become a truly worldwide church, we need to embrace it. Those reading this thread are the vanguard. Wine and Java are not the answer. Recompiling PAF for Linux would be. I would also throw in a version ...

I posted elsewhere the same idea and now I find a forum for it. Great! I'm interesting to an LDS/GNULinux distribution. I tried to run PAF with Wine having bad results.

LDS Linux

Building a distribution from source would not necessarily be a requirement. It should, however, be small enough to fit on one CD. As well, it should have PAF and other important LDS software. It should have LDS themed wallpaper and lds.org as it's browser homepage. It's software should be vetted so ...

LDS Linux

Believe it or not, I have looked up the domains ldsos.org, ldsos.net and ldsos.com and they are owned by a gentleman in the Provo area. However, I believe an LDS version of Linux is a good idea. I have been part of the Puppy Linux community for about a year and, during this time, have maintained my ...
