I used to have Ubuntu Edgy on my laptop along with XP. I used it more for testing of Perl stuffs, and the occasional Windows rebellion. At some point, my hard drive zorched itself, and I lost Ubuntu. I was able to recover XP enough to commit uncommitted bits and move on with surfing the web.
I finally got bored and reinstalled Ubuntu, this time the Feisty release. What a difference that was. My Dlink wireless card (650-G Rev B3) worked right out of the box this time. The network config tools overhaul is a huge improvement.
Desktop effects/driver worked great (except I have to manually force 1600x1200 due to a low mem old laptop).
SciTE works again. SVK is installed. I think I can finally use Ubuntu now as my full time thing, aside from Quicken and paying the bills once a month.
I'm having to ween myself off of point-n-click TortoiseSVN and back into command-line SVK. That's not too bad, aside from some quirks.
For example, 'svk propset propname propval *' never worked on win32, but works great on *nix for recursive wildcard prop sets.
I still don't understand why 'svn cp remotetrunkuri remotetaguri' works, but why 'svk cp removetrunkuri remotetagsuri' isn't allowed.
And just for giggles, 'svk pull *' will cycle through all subdirs in a folder and do a pull on each one. So does 'svk up *'. Of course, 'svk push *' doesn't work. Go figure.
