Mark Pilgrim again : I looked at Automatix (even installed it while testing off a Live CD while waiting an interminable length of time for Lenovo to ship me my computer) but ended up going with EasyUbuntu because I only need like 1/10th the stuff that EasyUbuntu does and 1/100% of what Automatix does. But either way, who could resist getting their software from a group that calls themselves the Penguin Liberation Front? Not to be confused with the Penguin Freedom Front, the Penguin Front of Liberation, or the Liberation Front of Penguins. Fucking Penguin Front of Liberation. What a bunch of wankers. Remembers me of the Comparison of Automatix and EasyUbuntu. More on Automatix is ‘not-so-good’ here.

Dive into Ubuntu
Cory Doctorow: on Boing Boing : Mac guru and software developer Mark Pilgrim recently switched to Ubuntu Linux after becoming fed up with proprietary Mac file-formats and the increasing use of DRM technologies in the MacOS. True to his reputation, Mark says Ubuntu is an ancient African word meaning âcanât install Debianâ?.
See here his list of add-on’s (including his firefox extensions). Sample:
- digiKam + Kipi plugins. Itâs just like iPhoto except it calls albums âtagsâ?, exports to Flickr for free, exports to HTML that validates, stores my important metadata in a SQLite database, can be operated entirely with a keyboard, and doesnât suck;
- k9copy. Itâs MacTheRipper and DVD2OneX all wrapped into one. Really;
- MPlayer (and MEncoder). Compiled from source, yo. Itâs the only thing Iâve felt the need to recompile, or indeed compile in the first place. Because a major new release came out about a week after Dapper shipped, and I wanted to try it. Also, I wanted support for more video codecs than the prebuilt binary included
- Free and Open Source Internet TV Platform Democracy TV
and 14 others.
Among the Firefox extensions: NextPlease, NoScript…
And I thought Mark was diving in family now…
