Words sting. The lack of them sting deeper.

There are situations when you just cannot think... no matter how direct the hints are, you always assume the worst case (may be he didn't like it and he said xyz for totally different reasons?? or may be she meant it as friends and I took it the other way?)... there are times when you need confirmation, reassurance... not just hints, but plain crude facts. And when they don't come, it is depressing and annoying and irritating and disturbing and getting to your nerves.

I always thought words would be the poorest form of communication, but now I see they have their own place. They are as important as others are.... Silence is golden, but when applied to the wrong places it can be as disastrous as it is useful.

Switched back to Suse

forget the Suse being microsoft-ed thing.... as of today, suse works for me !!:)

Well. it isn't that ubuntu isn't great... only that getting the developement environment to work for you is *very* tough .... and i don't have that kind of time at my disposal... so sadly, have to switch back to beloved suse!!

may be i'll go back to ubuntu after the project!!....

Switched to Ubuntu

After a long time using suse... finally switched to another distro : Ubuntu

Not that anything is wrong with suse (except that it going to be Microsoft-ed), the reasons were entirely project related.

Now that I am using Ubuntu...here is a brief review
The look and feel is really grand... very easy to use.. you no longer have to care about the horrendous dependency problems and unsupported file formats... Ubuntu automatically downloads support for them when you try to run them!!.... no need to search frantically on all repositories:) ....

On the other hand,
Ubuntu dosen't have a GUI for dial-up connections... so you have to use the terminal to connect to the net.. also, it is not as customisable as suse... the arrangement of menus leaves more to be desired...

all-in-all... if you are only an end-user.. Ubuntu is nice, just that you'll take time to get the hang of it.... but once you do, it is really really really cool... and with compis installed, its time to say adios to Windows!
