  1. 120 lei pentru 1x4Gb ? am deja 4Gb in laptop si mai mult de 8Gb nu imi suporta...
  2. singura problemape care o poti intampina este din cauza procesorului single core, dar din moment ce iti ruleaza Windows 7 SP1 o sa iti mearga si Windows 8.1 x32 fara probleme. De ce Windows 8.1? -> consuma mai putine resurse decat 7 (atat CPU cat si RAM) -> are timpii de start-up/shutdown mult mai mici decat 7 -> arata mult mai bine decat 7 (just my 2 cents) Poti descarca Windows 8.1 x32 de aici: Windows 8.1 AIO 20in1 x86 & x64 Preactivated Nov2013 L.E. @lauryca ai grija ca inainte de a face instalarea sa verifici compatibilitatea componentelor hardware ale laptopului cu Windows 8.1 == drivere L.E.2 Ce anume mai astepti? ) In momentul de fata ai Windows 7 si din moment ce ne-ai intrebat cu ce alta versiune sa schimbi inseamna ca 7 nu iti place. Singura ta alternativa (pe care toata lumea ti-am recomandat-o) este 8.1 ca doar nu te intorci la Windows XP :rofl:
  3. [TABLE=width: 727] [TR] [TD=colspan: 2][/TD] [/TR] [TR] [TD=colspan: 2]More and more people are looking towards the release of Ubuntu 14.04 LTS (Trusty Tahr) as the natural Windows XP replacement, so we'll try to present the pros and cons for this decision. A lot of Windows XP users are looking to make a change after their operating system will cease to receive security updates from Microsoft, in April. Like most people who are migrating to Linux, they have a lot of questions about various aspects, regarding its use and its capabilities. The truth is that probably Windows XP users are more scared than they should be, as we will show right now. Installation If you ever installed a Windows operating system, you will know how to install Ubuntu or any of its flavors. It uses a very simple and straightforward installer that doesn't bother the users with difficult choices. The only drawback is that if you want to partition your system you might encounter some names that are not familiar, like swap or EXT4. The good news is that it’s unlikely that you will ever need multiple partitions. Drivers Windows users also need to install drivers for new components, like Webcams for example. Some are supported by the operating system, other need manual installation. The only driver that you will have to worry in Ubuntu is the one for the graphics card. It’s not quite clear from where you can change it at first and installing a newer one might take some adjusting. The good news is the when you will learn how to add a PPA or how to upgrade your packages, everything will seem a breeze. Main interface Ubuntu is somewhat different from Windows XP in terms of the general interface. Although it’s intuitive, some users might not want to invest the time to learn how to operate a new OS. The good news is that Ubuntu has a lot of flavors that are a lot more similar with the way Windows XP looks, like Xubuntu or Lubuntu. Both are based on Ubuntu and feature pretty much the same software. Applications and security Installing applications in Windows XP seem easy, right? Double click on a package, hit next a couple of time (agree to an EULA agreement you don't actually read), and everything is set. In Ubuntu things are a lot easier. Just open Ubuntu Software Center and search for the application you want. Click install and you're done. Installing applications in Windows XP could be very dangerous, especially after Microsoft will pull the plug and end the stream of security patches. On Ubuntu you will never get viruses or malware, and the number of viruses for the Linux platform is extremely small. Whenever a problem appears, it only takes the developers a short while to fix it. The only drawback on Ubuntu is that you might not find all the applications you were used to on Windows XP. Most of the bigger apps are cross-platform, but on Ubuntu you might need to search for alternatives. Gaming Windows XP might seem a better platform for gaming, but the truth is that most game developers will soon stop to make their software compatible with a dying OS. Valve is putting a lot of effort towards the Linux platform and they are pushing the gaming industry in this direction. Steam for Linux got more than 500 games in just one year and there is no sign that they are going to slow down. In the next couple of years, the Linux platform will surely be on par with any Windows OS. Adopting Ubuntu now and getting used to it, if you are a gamer, might a great idea. Conclusion If you are a Windows XP user and you have doubts about adopting Linux and Ubuntu, you might want to think twice about your decision to upgrade to Windows 7 or 8. Linux has it all and there is no good reason not to want an operating system based on it.[/TD] [/TR] [/TABLE] Sursa: Ubuntu 14.04 LTS vs. Windows XP: Pros and Cons L.E. Nu stiu de ce textul nu face break la sfarsitul randului In cazul in care este vina mea (si sigur este) un admin poate edita.
  4. For a while Ubuntu 14.04 LTS was looking like it would be launching a few features short of noteworthy. As a ‘Long Term Support’ release that would’ve been an understandable, if disappointing, decision. But over the last few weeks that expectation has punted into the distance as a bunch of long-requested desktop features have finally been fixed up and patched in. From the headline-worthy introduction of locally integrated app menus to subtle tweaks like antialiased corners and a faster way to lock the screen. Perhaps we should’ve had more trust in the Tahr. As the following list shows, it has turned out to have quite the kick in its step… #1: Smaller Unity Launcher You probably already know that you can adjust the size of the Unity Launcher through the slider present in the System Settings > Appearance pane. But, until this release, the minimum size was fixed and could only go so far; you weren’t able to make the Launcher really small. That’s not the case in Trusty. The Unity Launcher can be resized to a minuscule 16px wide, down from the default setting of 48px wide. I’m not entirely convinced that this teeny-tiny width is all that useable; you’d have to really want to have a stack of icons to hand to use it. Still, it’s great to have the choice. #2: Raise Volume Past 100% Whether your laptop speakers are rubbish or the media you’re trying to listen to is insanely quiet, there are often times when pumping the volume up past 100% is needed. Without the need for hacks or extra apps, Trusty ships with support to increase the system volume past the 100% level. Wisely, this feature is not enabled by default, you have to manually check the ‘Allow Louder’ box in System Settings > Sound to take advantage of the change. Of course, cranking the volume past max won’t do anything for quality or clarity, but, at the very least, should put something into earshot. #3: Locally Integrated Menus If I asked you to list some of the more controversial changes Ubuntu has made over the years there’s a good chance that the decision to punt application menus into the top of the screen would make your cut. A lot of people are going to be happy with Ubuntu 14.04; the oft-requested option to show application menus in app windows has finally been implemented — albeit not in the way most people would’ve expected. To maintain the justification for removing them in the first place (i.e., space) the LIM appears embedded in the window title bar, and not, classically, as a separate menu bar beneath it. This may sound like it will get in the way of moving and adjusting windows, but some clever interaction heuristics mean it’s surprisingly swish in use, as the following GIF shows: #4: Full Menus A glut of Ubuntu’s default GNOME apps, including Nautilus and Rhythmbox, have had standard menus reinstated. The need for this comes as GNOME developers are tailoring their apps to suit their own direction, one that dispenses with traditional desktop metaphors, with many apps having their menu offerings pruned and condensed into two separate menus: an overarching ‘file menu’, and an in-app ‘cog’ menu. With Ubuntu using many of GNOME’s applications it inherited this change of approach. Panic is over though as a number of applications (though, I might add, not all) have had their familiar ‘File’, ‘Edit’, etc. menus patched back in. #5: Antialiased Windows Thanks to the introduction of GTK3 CSS-themed window decorations for Unity 7, all app windows now have antialiased corners. It’s a trivial but noticeable change. The ‘Decor’ Compiz plugin used to draw window borders in previous releases wasn’t able to handle this, resulting in the app frame corners sporting a slightly ‘stepped’ look (right side of image) If there’s a downside to be found it’s that, owing to the switch, window controls can not be moved to the right without first switching to a different theme or window decorator. #6: Faster Lock Screen Shortcut One of the first things I do after installing Ubuntu is disable automatic screen locking. I know, this is bad from a security POV. But as someone who is easily distracted it gets annoying to have to continually reenter my password after getting distracted by a playful cat or sudden influx of WhatsApp messages. On the flip side, as someone who also works out of a coffee shop a few days a week screen locking is something I do have need for. Trusty brings me a great compromise in the form of an easy screen locking shortcut. Where previous releases would require finger gymnastics, or muddling through menus, 14.04 requires a simple prod of the Super+L key combo to shutter my desktop from prying eyes. #7: Live Window Resizing While not strictly a ‘new feature’ it is a ‘new default behaviour’: live window resizing has been turned on in Unity 7 on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS. Adjusting the size of a window on Ubuntu at present will show a semi-transparent box of the intended ‘target’ dimension. Letting go of the mouse then sees the app window snap to the new size. While this was (indeed is) helpful, it’s not quite as helpful as actually seeing the result affect the app in real time. Sursa: 7 Improvements In Ubuntu 14.04 LTS That You're Going To Love P.S. Data de lansare a noilor versiuni Ubuntu este "ascunsa" in numele versiunii. De exemplu: Ubuntu 13.10 a fost lansat in luna octombrie (10), anul 2013 (2013) Ubuntu 14.04 va fi lansat in luna aprilie (04), anul 2014
  5. @sleed pai Ubuntu este creat pe baza Debian, ceea ce inseamna ca ambele folosesc pachetele "apt" deci nu vad de ce ar fi probleme
  6. We have seen Android apps that lets you remotely control Banshee, VLC, Amarok etc. But how about a more holistic approach? Linux Remote Control aka LRC is a WebApp that turns any device with a web browser (that has HTML5 support) into a full-fledged remote control for systems that run any Linux based distros. Tested it on Ubuntu 13.10 and I have to say I'm impressed! Here's how you install and setup Linux Remote Control in Ubuntu. How to install and setup Linux Remote Control in Ubuntu? Download the LRC deb package and install it. For that, simply follow the steps below in your Terminal. Instructions here are specifically for Debian based distros like Ubuntu. sudo apt-get install node nodejs-legacy wget http://www.linuxremotecontrol.com/lrc.deb sudo dpkg -i ~/Downloads/lrc.deb sudo apt-get install -f The fourth command above is optional. Run it only if the second line resulted in some error. Done. LRC installation is complete. Now, you need to move the "lrc-client" directory to your phone (can be your external memory card as well). For that, open Nautilus as root first ("sudo nautilus" in Terminal). Cut-paste the "lrc-client" directory to your phone. Afterwards, start the LRC service in your Ubuntu by using the following command. node /opt/lrc-server/lrc.js And finally, launch the lrc-client from your phone. Goto the "lrc-client" directory in your external SD card (which you copy-pasted earlier) and launch the index.html file in your favorite browser (Firefox beta for Android in my case). For me, the functionalities that worked perfectly include the brightness level adjuster, shutdown/restart buttons as well as lock/unlock buttons, and multimedia pause/stop/play buttons. Things that worked not-so-well include the touchpad controls and some aspects of multimedia controls. More info and instructions here. Thanks for reading.
  7. @kznamst nu se vorbeste despre sistemul de invatamanant in articol. Ideea principala e ca pe cei de la Google ii doare in castravete ca tu ai absolvit MIT, vreo darapanatura de facultate de care nimeni nu a auzit sau care nu are nici o certificare sau nu ai absolvit deloc. Acest lucru se aplica si in Romania, si anume o persoana care nu a absolvit o facultate are sanse egale sau chiar mai mari sa obtina locul de munca decat una care a absolvit UniBuc sau Poli P.S. Asta in cazul in care treci de pitipoancele de la HR )
  8. Google has spent years analyzing who succeeds at the company, which has moved away from a focus on GPAs, brand name schools, and interview brain teasers. In a conversation with The New York Times’ Tom Friedman, Google’s head of people operations, Laszlo Bock, detailed what the company looks for. And increasingly, it’s not about credentials. Graduates of top schools can lack “intellectual humility” Megan McArdle argued recently that writers procrastinate “because they got too many A’s in English class.” Successful young graduates have been taught to rely on talent, which makes them unable to fail gracefully. Google looks for the ability to step back and embrace other people’s ideas when they’re better. “It’s ‘intellectual humility.’ Without humility, you are unable to learn,” Bock says. “Successful bright people rarely experience failure, and so they don’t learn how to learn from that failure.” Those people have an unfortunate reaction, Bock says: “They, instead, commit the fundamental attribution error, which is if something good happens, it’s because I’m a genius. If something bad happens, it’s because someone’s an idiot or I didn’t get the resources or the market moved. … What we’ve seen is that the people who are the most successful here, who we want to hire, will have a fierce position. They’ll argue like hell. They’ll be zealots about their point of view. But then you say, ‘here’s a new fact,’ and they’ll go, ‘Oh, well, that changes things; you’re right.’” People that make it without college are often the most exceptional Talent exists in so many places that hiring managers who rely on a few schools are using it as a crutch and missing out. Bock says: “When you look at people who don’t go to school and make their way in the world, those are exceptional human beings. And we should do everything we can to find those people.” Many schools don’t deliver on what they promise, Bock says, but generate a ton of debt in return for not learning what’s most useful. It’s an “extended adolescence,” he says. Learning ability is more important than IQ Succeeding in academia isn’t always a sign of being able to do a job. Bock has previously said that college can be an “artificial environment” that conditions for one type of thinking. IQ is less valuable than learning on the fly, Bock says: “For every job, though, the No. 1 thing we look for is general cognitive ability, and it’s not IQ. It’s learning ability. It’s the ability to process on the fly. It’s the ability to pull together disparate bits of information. We assess that using structured behavioral interviews that we validate to make sure they’re predictive.” A behavioral interview, in contrast with those that ask people to figure out how many tennis balls fit into a tennis court, might ask how you’ve reacted to a particularly difficult problem in the past. They can also help find people who fit the company’s definition of leadership. It’s not about leading a club at school or an impressive prior title, Bock says, but the ability to step up and lead when it’s necessary.
  9. pisamas pe fosilele alea de profesori....toti cauta sa faca rost de licente de windows si de antivirusi sa le dea mai departe pe la rude si cunostinte..... acum vreo 2 ani, liceul unde am invatat eu a primit donatie vreo 30+ calculatoare (monitor, unitate, periferice) destul de performante, de la o facultate. Cateva dintre calculatoare rulau XP SP2 iar restul nu prezentau sistem de operare, insa timp de vreo 2 luni toata lumea a fost multumita. Dupa ce s-au linistit apele si s-au vazut cu sacii in caruta, "diferiti" profesori (directoare, directoare adjuncta, profesoara de informatica...cei cu ceva influenta in liceu) au inceput sa dea zvon prin scoala ca sistemul de operare e prea vechi pentru performanta calculatoarelor si ca au nevoie de licente de Windows 7 pentru a le "revigora" pe cele cu XP si punere in folosinta pe cele goale ) Long Story Short: Inainte de a incepe perioada bacului sau in vacanta de vara au primit ceva licente de la Inspectorat, dar pe care si le-au impartit intre ei profesorii mai sus enumerati. In prima saptamana a noului an scolar eu si un coleg am fost chemati in biroul directoarei si rugati sa facem o favoare liceului si anume " puteti sa faceti voi rost de windows 7 din surse proprii si sa il instalati pe toate calculatoarele din noul cabinet de informatica? " Legat de reportajul de mai sus, nici macar unui elev nu au luat interviul, probabil le era ca spune vreunul ceva care sa ii dea de gol
  10. It’s abundantly clear that technology plays a huge role in education these days, as we’ve already seen with the Samsung School initiative and the increased used of online media for teaching. Whereas most other schools look to Windows and Mac for their student computers, one American high school is taking an entirely different direction: an open-source direction. Every student at Penn Manor High School has been given an Acer TravelMate laptop loaded with Ubuntu 13.10. That’s over 1,700 laptops being distributed to the student body and, what’s more, all of the students are being provided with full sudo access to their computers. What this means is that they are granted effectively superuser level security privileges to do as they will with their TravelMates. In fact, the school is encouraging students to “install software and lift the hood of the system to better understand what makes it tick,” said district technology director Charlie Reisinger. “Linux offers so many opportunities to explore computing, programming, and the arts.” While this move could prove to be something of a hindrance for students when they need to transition back into a more mainstream computing environment, the experience and knowledge could be great for students who move on to careers in IT, like systems administration or work related to web servers. By encouraging them to tinker, students may be better equipped at solving their own problems, as well as collaborating with a larger (open source) community. It’s not too shabby that the district stands to save at least $360,000 in licensing fees alone either. Sorce: High School Goes Open Source Mi-a placut mult de tot partea asta "all of the students are being provided with full sudo access to their computers". Sa vezi ce rup elevii cd-urile si usb-urile cu Ubuntu LiveUsb sa repare GRUB-ul
  11. @bajetzashu89 pentru o tara care plateste 8 Milioane de euro pentru un website ar fi chiar culmea sa fie folosit ceva FOSS
  12. @Cril, etc) au cunostinte ca in "real-world" treburile stau ceva mai diferit, sunt invitati sa participe la discutie, insa fara a-si baga salamul in frigiderul meu )) Concluzia Finala: Apucati-va de Linux de pe acum, o sa va prinda foarte bine ceva mai tarziu

Sectorul Dreapta a comunicat c? nu are încredere în pre?edintele Ucrainei, Viktor Ianukovici, avertizând c? va continua lupta împotriva regimului de la Kiev, informeaz? site-ul agen?iei Interfax Ukraine. "Revolu?ia na?ional? continu?", a declarat Dmitro Iaro?, liderul organiza?iei radicale Sectorul Dreapta. UPDATE 17:05 - Parlamentul ucrainean a votat revenirea la Constitu?ia din 2004 Parlamentul ucrainean a votat vineri, cu o majoritate larg?, în favoarea adopt?rii Constitu?iei din 2004, care acorda pre?edintelui puteri mai pu?in importante decât Constitu?ia actual?, relateaz? AFP. Acest vot a avut loc în urma semn?rii unui acord de ie?ire din criz? de c?tre pre?edintele Viktor Ianukovici ?i reprezentan?i ai opozi?iei. UPDATE 16:51 - UE îndeamn? Guvernul ?i opozi?ia ucrainene s? pun? în aplicare acordul de la Kiev Pre?edintele Consiliului European Herman Van Rompuy a îndemnat vineri Guvernul ?i opozi?ia din Ucraina "s? treac? de la vorbe la fapte" ?i s? pun? în aplicare acordul de ie?ire din criz? pe care l-au semnat în prezen?a mediatorilor europeni, relateaz? AFP. Acest acord "este un compromis necesar în vederea lans?rii unui dialog politic indisprensabil" care s? permit? Ucrainei s? ias? din criz?, a apreciat Van Rompuy. "De-acum este rsponsabilitatea tuturor p?r?ilor s? fie curajoase ?i s? treac? de la vorbe la fapte", a ad?ugat el, citat într-un comunicat.
