Safari is most likely the biggest memory hog on my Mac. I finally got fed up with it using nearly 1 gig of memory and I’m switching to Google Chrome until Apple fixes this problem.
Apple developers that may happen to read this blog, you have the best browser available, in my opinion, but this memory issue makes me want to never use Safari again and just use Chrome and if I just start using Chrome, Open Office and other open source apps exclusively, like I did at one time instead of your “it just works” products, I might as well go back to buying an HP or a Lenovo laptop and install Linux on it instead of paying for your machines. Please fix these memory issues in Safari and your other products, they don’t need to be that memory heavy!
Google you have doing a wonderful job with Chrome. I use it on both Linux and Mac; I love how there is almost no difference in interface and that it sync’s my bookmarks with my existing google account.
I’m happy to see the installer is fixed in beta 1. I haven’t touched any of the daily builds since the last time I blogged about Ubuntu.
At first glance the rebranding is beautiful. It looks more professional, with a new gnome theme and icons. Every pretty interface. As usual the installer was very simple and installing software after is just as easy.
Ubuntu is could be posed to be a TRUE enterprise desktop. Lets see Canonical put out fully open source desktop management solution for Ubuntu for deploying software and updates.
I’m going to be selling Ubuntu desktops to all my clients from this point forward, sorry Novell but Ubuntu is much better then SLED 11 when it comes to end user usability.
I just attempted an install of Ubuntu 10.04 using the DVD installer, it crashes nearly immediately when entering your username and password. Come on Ubuntu project you can do better then this.
The CD installer is broke as well, I’ll update using apt-get on my 9.10 virtual machine shortly.
