Well, here’s another spectacularly geeky cartoon from xkcd:

X11

I’ve just been playing with the beta release of Ubuntu GNU/Linux 11.10 (Oneiric Ocelot, if I have the spelling correct), due for release this week – tomorrow if memory serves.  I had some issues with screen resolution, so this cartoon resonates with me.  If there’s one thing I hate, it’s trying to sort out screen resolutions that haven’t been detected.

Incidentally, the latest release of Ubuntu seems to me to have sorted out many of the issues I’ve had with the Unity desktop, and I have new-found enthusiasm for it.  Perhaps I’ll write a bit more about Ubuntu 11.10 later this week
