This might not sound like a big deal, but mice actually have pretty advanced brains in the grand scheme of things. Once they have the capacity to simulate an entire mouse nervous system, I'd like to see if they could somehow create a "postmouse".

Kubuntu 7.04

I've got Kubuntu 7.04 running on the laptop, so now I just need to upgrade the desktop. I still need to set up my laptop media keys (those didn't work in previous versions either) but otherwise it's all set up. I think it's a WAY better release than 6.10, but this time I just reinstalled and copied over my home directory instead of upgrading.

The big pluses I've noticed so far:
  1. The Wi-Fi support doesn't suck cocks any more. There's a simple and effective internet connection thing on the bottom right, and WPA support.
  2. Now, when I want to install MP3 support (or apparently other codecs) I don't need to install weird programs or jump through hoops... it just asks and installs automatically.
  3. You can configure Wine with all the other stuff in System Settings, instead of having to use the painful winecfg program.
