Viper550troy_s, hello02:24
troy_sViper550: Well well well...02:24
troy_sViper550: If it isn't a matured Viper. How goes it sir?02:24
Viper550Still good. Still unfortunately not using Linux as a primary OS (but still uses OSS whenever possible)02:24
troy_sViper550: Is it unfortunate, fortunate, or moot?02:25
Viper550Moot, since I know even with how much development Ubuntu has had lately, I still don't think Windows will be topped as the king of desktop computing02:26
Viper550However, I am impressed at how much Linux has been gaining traction on portable devices02:26
troy_sViper550: That would also be a cue to trigger the "Viper is delusional" bell.02:26
troy_sViper550: Last time I checked, MSFT was surfing downward at 219B market cap, Google upwards at 199B, and Apple upwards at 330B.02:27
Viper550And, I moved to Saskatchewan last year02:27
troy_sViper550: To me, it reeks of someone that isn't paying attention.02:27
troy_sViper550: Congratulations!02:27
troy_sViper550: Good Canuckville.02:27
Viper550and I mean, Android = most popular smartphone OS02:27
troy_sViper550: Really, the whole comparison blah blah blah is a moot point. This has nothing to do with where we are.02:27
troy_sViper550: And everything to do with designing where people are going. Specific people. Specific cultures. Specific needs.02:27
troy_sViper550: And wrapping all of that in a desirable experience.02:28
Viper550while my new school board seems to have a flagrant M$ bias (Office 2007, Windows 7, freaking Exchange), at least there's still some Linux here and there02:28
troy_sViper550: Linux is about as suitable for usage as OSX is for medical instrumentation panels or MS is for nuclear submarine control.02:29
Viper550my computer science teacher (where we learn *gasp* VB.net) wanted me to install Ubuntu 10.10 on an older laptop02:29
troy_sViper550: It always has been, and always will be, about usefulbility.02:29
Viper550and the server that houses the school websites runs some sort of RHEL 402:29
Viper550however, my plan to install Habari as a CMS for the school website has hit some obstacles so big, an IT department ''leader'' is coming to have a meeting with me on Tuesday.02:30
troy_sViper550: The question is whether or not you can create a compelling experience for that person. Good luck with that.02:30
troy_sViper550: Forcing issues where issues are complex will likely result in a bucket of failure.02:31
Viper550However, http://schools.cornerstonesd.ca/~wcs/02:31
troy_sViper550: Cut to the chase - so you succeed. Who cares? What is gained? Does it matter?02:32
troy_sViper550: Bigger questions.02:32
Viper550I live in a small town. If I can make any change towards the better here, it will feel like an accomplishment02:33
troy_sViper550: Better is a relative word my friend.02:35
Viper550I mean better as in, not looking like a stereotypical Geocities site02:35
troy_sViper550: Erm... well isn't that a question of aesthetic?02:37
Viper550thenagain, our school board already utilizes a whole batch of web apps (Blackboard, Home/TeacherLogic), so being able to apply the principle to school websites could make it easier to keep them updated/maintained02:39
Viper550and also, Unity is an interesting desktop02:40
troy_sViper550: You are all over the map. You are supposed to be four years older.02:41
troy_sViper550: How are you finding Saskatchewan?02:42
Viper550Snow, snow, and more snow.02:43
Viper550the provincial government operates its own phone company, SaskTel02:51
Viper550thankfully their internet service isn't that bad02:56
