As above. I have heard that cinepaint has been used professionally. Does anyone know of any other open source software that has made it into the professional world?
Operating systems used in movies
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 28, 2008
I was wondering if anyone else watches movies and wonders what operating system these people are supposedly using. Mission Impossible is a great example. The hackers in these movies are using some monochromatic OS that looks more like UT2003 than any os i've ever seen. I think i've looked at all the linux desktop and none look like that. Has anyone else wondered about those OS's or tried to create the desktop? I'd love to see screenshots of these computers if anyone has them or see how big of a list of movies we can make with a fictional operating system.

Where is the config file used by the networkadmin tool in Heron ?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 15, 2009
The new network configuration tool that 8.04 uses, network-admin, is pretty cool, but i'd like to know where it stores all the settings and changes that I make to it. For example, where does it store information such as WPA passwords that I have associated with each ssid? I don't see anything in /etc/network/interfaces
Also, is there a way of telling the roaming network manager which channel to listen to? Or does it scan all frequencies when showing you the list of available channels?
Where is Linux used in business?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 25, 2010
I need recent, reputable articles about Linux being used in businesses in any way, and/or used in "the industry" in any way.
The reason is because I want to go for my RHCE, and RHCT certs, but my family is saying that it is useless, and that if I really want a job I need to get the Microsoft equivalent, and while I accept that there are more jobs for windows over Linux, I need to show that there are still plenty of space in "the industry" for Linux sysadmins.

Name a movie/tv show where you have seen Linux being used!

Name a movie/tv show where you have seen Linux being used, or the Tux logo. I for one (and I know I'm not alone) have seen it many times, I cannot recall where immediately, except for:
"The Social Network" (amazing movie!)
Some BBC documentary (I think about space)
Could somebody explain the pros and cons of some of the most used file systems?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: December 10, 2008
I'm interested in learning about different types of file systems, things I have gathered so far areFAT12 and FAT16 were used by windows but you could only have files THISLONG.EXA so they made FAT32 and then vFAT or something. Most people seem to dislike the FAT system
NTFS seems to be the best system if you want to run on both Windows and Linux or just Windows (so NTFS would be a good format for your USB memory sticks, because you'll probably use them on computers,-not-linux right?)
EXT2 and 3 seem to be the best formats for Linux
...I don't really know any other, maybe XFS which seems to be good for Media storage/transfer or something
If somebody knows anything about other file systems, anything more about those whom I mentioned or anything I was wrong about? Thank you
Where is all my RAM being used?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 21, 2011
I have a server that is running Ubuntu 8.04 TLS server 64 bit. It has 26 GBs of memory in it. The server hosts vmware server 2.0.2 (I'm suspecting this is somehow the culprit) and runs 7 guests consisting of Windows 2003 servers and some Linux distros. They are set to use 14 GBs of memory. However, something is slowly using up all the available RAM on the server and I can't figure out what. If I run top I get this:
This is slightly hard to read in this format so I bolded the memory %'s of the top few

Deluge Where is the "forced start" option?

Deluge -- Where is the "forced start" option?
It is a nice bittoreent client. Vuze is absolutely rubbish! But it would be even better with the "forced start" option.
Edit: Also I would like to know if it is possible to group the torrents in Deluge
