LCD Monitor Recommendation

I have been on a 3 year quest to dump my old Sony CRT monitor and replace it with an LCD monitor, but I keep getting sidetracked. I am looking for suggestions (recommendations really) for a high end/quality LCD monitor. Resolution must be 1920x1200 or higher (NOT 1080), and most likely 24in display. It would be really nice with dual-inputs so I can add both my desktop and laptop. A built in USB hub would also be pretty useful.

Wikipedia Migrates from Fedora to Ubuntu

The admins running Wikipedia are almost complete in migrating their servers from a mix of RedHat and Fedora to Ubuntu. The primary reasons behind the switch, according to Brion Vibber (Wikimedia CTO), were personal preference, Ubuntu availability on the desktop and better support/stability compared to Fedora. As a server, one might think that an enterprise option like RHEL or CentOS might make for a better choice, however both of these lack the appeal of Ubuntu and the flexibility in support.

After spending a good deal of time configuring Fedora 9 I thought I would take this opportunity to provide my thoughts and feedback.

This has been missing since Fedora 7.

Resuming USB after F7 ACPI Suspend

As mentioned in my Fedora 7 Review, there were some ACPI regressions in functionality. The basic problem is as such: Before I hit ‘Suspend’ my mouse is working fine, however the mouse fails to activate after the computer is resumed. To get the mouse to work again, I must run the following, after which the mouse works perfectly. [mirandam@charon ~]$ sudo su - [root@charon ~]# modprobe -r ehci_hcd [root@charon ~]# modprobe ehci_hcd How do I know which module to pick?

Fedora 7 Review

I have been using Fedora 7 for 2 weeks now and feel I’ve setup and configured almost all of the software and hardware as I would like. The following are my observations and assessments of this release. Installation: Media Many people have complained that the methods for installing Fedora 7 (F7) were poorly thought out. There are 2 types of ISO’s available for download: Live Images and basic DVD Installs. The Live Images boot to a useable instance of Fedora in memory and provide a method to install the contents of the disk onto the drive.
