    I don't understand what you mean by saying "I have used linux and using linux". I am a user of linux for a long time I hesitate to use other OS now a days. You can find from archives that I become a full time user of linux (in office) some 3 years back. Today 90% of our office user are under linux and 100% the servers are. Nobody have any complaint, everybody is happy with what they got. Earlier there were many breakdowns because of virus / blocking server because of spam (DSS), etc. Now there is no such issue, the systems are running without any glitch.

    I don't know what peculiar problem you are facing. I am very sure that it is not because of linux.

    Because Linux is based on design philosophies (going back decades to the design of Unix as a multi-tasking system) where the operatating system protects itself and other programs from the action of a rogue or hung program, hangs and crashes are rare. That is, rare as in rare not as in impossible. I have certainly experienced a couple of Ubuntu crashes over the past year or so.

    It's just a theory, but for anyone who thinks their system has frozen that their desktop has frozen. If that user's technical knowledge doesn't go any deeper than the desktop (and there is no reason that it should. An operating system should not have to be a hobby!) then it is about equivalent to they system freezing.

    If you can handle a command prompt, ps and kill commands, it is possible that this situation can be rescued, and sometimes without the loss of all your unsaved work in different programs on that desktop. In Ubuntu, CTRL-ALT-F1 to F6 will give you dumb terminal logins CTRL-ALT-F7 give you your desktop.

    There are also key sequences that allow a machine to be safely shutdown.

    [There is a C "one-liner" (and one line is about as far as my C knowledge goes) that can slay some *nix machines. Roughly: main() {{ while ( 1 ) { fork(); }}. I just tried it. My Ubuntu system is a bit wounded, but still alive! ]

    [ps ... it does nothing, but it takes up 100% resources with an infinite number of threads, all doing that nothing.]

    Cool audio drivers?

    apt-get update && apt-get install alsa-base alsa-utils bluez-alsa:amd64 libasound2:amd64 libasound2-dev:amd64 libasound2-plugins:amd64 libsox-fmt-alsa:amd64
    for 64 bit and
    apt-get update && apt-get install alsa-base alsa-utils bluez-alsa libasound2 libasound2-dev libasound2-plugins libsox-fmt-alsa
    this should do the trick for all arch including i386 or arm or mips, check if your sound card is isa or pci or usb

    What I see here is that, as the name of the thread is "How many Linux users here? ", people using windows get least attracted and more linux users end up putting their vote ?
    Just a logic from my side for more number of linux users in poll; where as in practice more number windows users are here.

    I was using Linux before but then found it too much work to get simple things done so removed it. I am looking for an easier option. I also need to use a wifi usb dongle with it. Any idea?

    Also does any one have any experience using a server like a desktop computer remotely? with a GUI? I looked here and there but cannot find anything. I would appreciate any help in this regard. I dont want windows so any linus distro with some plugin that lets me do that would be great.

    You could use CentOs linux, based on Fedora, it can be used both as a server and a Desktop. In fact, it was developed as a server edition.
    A review here : http://www.dedoimedo.com/computers/centos-6.html
    I have used CentOs as only a Desktop, it was rock-solid,never crashes, etc.,
    But to use it as server, you need to do some research, as I have never had a server.

    Using Cent OS for the server is not a problem and all my servers and VPS infact run on Cent OS6. That is not what I am looking for.

    This is what I want :

    I have a server that I can use with plenty of resources and bandwidth and I want to use it like a remote desktop sitting at home. I want to install applications like we do on a desktop and be able to use them remotely like we use a desktop at home.

    Arch user here, not a fan of GTK+ framework. I like QT lot more, hence I use KDE as my desktop environment.
    GNOME ain't bad either, it has improved a lot in last few iterations.

    I was a bit too busy with work for the last year and a half or so. The project I was working on is finished now and is in production so it is more like keeping the engine oiled as opposed to building it I have a lot of free time on hand now so I am going to spend more time pissing people off around here ( That includes you)

    I have been visiting crazyengineers for over a year but havent got around to create an id for myself. There is an IQ check before you create an id and thats where I get stuck at every time Hopefully one day.

    The IQ question is introduced to avoid bot spams & dumbnut human spams .Plus, anyone can be part of community, even non-engineers.
    I am going to talk with other MODs for your query about IQ questions during registrations, thanks for feedback.

    For spam protection you could get in touch with Admin here as he has been doing a very good job keeping spammers and even spam registrations away from this board. I honestly do not have any idea what the answer to those questions is. For example it said 5X+15 = 20 and I was asked what is X I have spent two years in each class after 9th class and I still dont know the answers ha ha ha I should have spent more time I guess.

    That's if they let you in. My question is Solve: 2x + 4 = 10, So x = ? I used all the powers bestowed in me by the lord almighty and still couldn't get it right. I probably don't belong there. Is this forum full of retards then and that place full of intelligent people? I like to believe that I am not too dumb This registration problem makes me think over my beliefs in this regard

    Sorry algebra isint my specialization unfortunately. I majored in drag racing with my dad's maruti 800 and I was good at it. My dad still hates me for screwing his cars tyres every 3 months back then.

    Do let me know if you would like to know more about drag racing It is good fun. I dont do it with a maruti 800 any more though!

    Shall we take our spam to the off topic discussion please? This thread is sending out e-mails like crazy and I dont think members that are subscribed to this thread are interested in our jibbrish. Please open a new thread some where if anyone want to carry on spamming.

    Howdy, junta!

    Abhishek informed about this discussion and I thought I'd chip in. I'm the administrator at CrazyEngineers. It's so nice to know that you all have been visiting CrazyEngineers. Allow me to add my Rs. 1.2 :-

    We don't have an IQ check. If you are referring to the small equation we ask people to solve - then I admit that we've had pretty complex ones for a short period of time. Since then we've changed them to simple calculation. I'd not say they help in keeping the spammers away but they're far better than reCAPTCHA. We'll however turn those questions into something very simple or just eliminate them.

    We switched to XF on December 01, 2011. We did have all the redirects in place; but sudden change in URLs sitewide was hated by Google and we suffered few several months. The bigger impact was when we ditched WordPress and went 100% XF. But I'm happy we've managed to survive.

    We've a much broader perspective towards engineering - anyone (irrespective of their engineering degree or certificate) interested in engineering, technology and science is welcome. We'd be happy to have you on CE.

    Not really. You just have to solve a simple equation. We'll fix those equations and implement an easier mechanism.

    We do multiple checks even after the initial registration. However, it's almost impossible to ban the human spammers.

    Do let me know which one of you got their answers correct without calling up a techie friend over the phone for help with answering those questions
    Oh well, any success so far? We've already noted the feedback and are working on it.

    Thread is still not closed and I take it as an invitation to post a reply.

    Drag racing ? Yes. Can I take the passenger seat while you drive some day? Is this a weekend hobby or something? I have only seen drag races in US. Did not know people had enough money in India to indulge in such activities in India or interest whatever suits your imagination.

    Is the seat booked for me for a race? Hope your wifey wont mind!

    I converted to xenforo and you could see the graph at alexa coming down from that point. I waited for a long time but rankings never recovered. Used to be 10000-12000 alexa rank before I crossed path with xenforo. I converted back to vbulletin last month and things have started showing signs of life once again so hoping we would be back on our feet in two months or so.

    Me and a few friends get together once a month or so but we dont really drag drag drag race so to speak but we do burn some rubber and some of us go turtle as well in the process so if you are up for some adventure then most welcome. Have yourself insured though.

    Wifey doesnt need to know she hates this forum any way so not a chance of reading this post.

    All the best with that! We ever got our earlier traffic back; but we're super happy with XF. Now that we've got a lot of things developed on the top of it; there's no way we're going back. I really hope the vB software is maintained. vB 5 turned out to be a disaster!

    How long did you stay with XF?

    I think a little over a year. Admin must remember the date.

    We had it for over a year.

    Shani goes direct in Libra on the 21st and Rahu is going to be out of Libra and that will bring back the old glory so another 10 days to go before we take off like a multi stage rocket again

    I dont plan to use vb5 ever. VB4 will be good for another 4-5 years I hope. I love xenforo otherwise and use it for some other forums but this one was a different case. Other conversions to xenforo went very smoothly without a drop in traffic.

    Hello! I'm a Linux user since this Sunday (2 days ago)! And I'm pretty happy with this operating system, currently I'm using the last version of Lubuntu, 15.4 if I'm not mistaken! Very light and user friendly, I would recomend it to everyone that is thinking of trying Linux OS! :P

    No, it means that either I uninstalled windows OR I installed Linux and Windows in a dualboot system. And yes it's the second chance, I have Windows 8.1 and Lubuntu installed on my PC. Although I'm only using Lubuntu right now. And I don't regret it.

    Do you want to keep the 2 Operating Systems or you just want Linux? And what distro do you want? You have loads of distros, I would recomend Lubuntu if you are new to Linux OS, and I didn't understand you last sentence :S you need to donwload Linux of course, and if you uninstall Windows you will need to have a Windows Copy to install it again....
