What?!?! Two posts in one day!
I’m watching TWIT-TV- a great Internet TV “channel” for your inner geek. Anyway, I wanted to watch the July 3rd edition as Jerry Pournelle – who I have read since his early Byte magazine days – was on that show.
I plugged my Mini 10v (the original 1011) into my 47LG70 LCD television via the VGA cable. Lo and behold – unlike my Windows 7 installation that I killed off for – Ubuntu recognized it better than Windows 7 did! It won’t do 1280p (likely due to RAM issues) but it runs 720p quite well. TWIT-TV works just fine with its HD display. Display selection seems to work better than Win7.
Ubuntu, Firefox, Thunderbird and OpenOffice (despite it being now owned by Oracle – time will tell…) is good enough it seems.
