Still using Debian GNU/Linux and very impressed with how well it works as compared to Linux Mint and Ubuntu. The new Ubuntu, as I have said before does not impress me and I will stick with Debian. The new graphical installer was easy to use even though my USB mouse would not work for some reason so I had to use the keyboard, but that was perfectly doable and not a problem was had at all. The USB keyboard worked perfectly and I finished the installation easily and quickly. As described in a previous posting, using the Debian unstable repositories other software possibilities are opened up to you such as the Enlightenment E17 desktop I am using now. That one is better than using Lxde and Xfce, with more eye candy and some good looking themes and animated wallpapers. That is one thing that bloated desktops like KDE do not have yet. The situation in Japan is only getting worse, but is being blown out of proportion by the mainstream media which is scaring the public into turning against Nuclear power. There are alternatives to nuclear power, but coal power is polluting the environment and since China are building even more and more coal fired power plants, the reserves of coal must run out sometime. I was watching the new series of “V” and they mentioned sabotaging a power plant to make the public afraid of the blue energy and start protests against the new visitor technology. That sounds just like the real life situation in Japan with the nuclear plant that was damaged by the tsunami.
The tsunami caused the catastrophe, not the quake and that needs to be remembered by the public who are all frightened by the media scare campaign against nuclear power, the coal companies that have vested interests in continuing the status quo of coal power which is very hazardous to your health.
