20 Jun 09 Enjoying Awesome Dual Monitors

Few months back I tried Vertical Monitor Setup and it was great. Last month, I turned it back to normal as I wanted to try something else, the Dual Monitor Setup. In office, we have Dell 22″ Widescreen LCD monitor for our Linux box and Compaq 17″ Normal LCD monitor for Windows pc.

I tried the setup on these two monitors, but did not like it because of small 17″ Campaq monitor. Then I took the 22″ Dell Widescreen monitor from one of my team mates who is on vacation (ofcourse, with her permission) and had setup the Dual Monitor with the two 22″ widescreen monitors for Linux Box. Found a cool wallpaper at this link when I googled for dual monitor wallpapers. Now its just looking amazing. Check the below image and screenshots. I will enjoy this awesome setup atleast till my team mate comes back from vacation :)

21 Feb 09 Kubuntu 8.10 with KDE 4.2 – Rocking Combination

I installed Windows Vista on my Home PC when I bought it last year. It was running fine on my PC but it could be because of high-end configuration of my system (Intel Core 2 Duo processor, 2GB RAM and Nvidia GeForce 8600GT 256MB Graphics card).

But couple of weeks back, I asked myself “Am I depending more on Microsoft?”. Being Microsoft hater, I decided to completely remove vista and install Linux. Then I installed Kubuntu 8.10 (Intrepid) 64bit edition. But I could not completely avoid using Windows because of some windows-only software. So, I installed Windows XP using VMware.

Kubuntu (Ubuntu with KDE) is the best User-Friendly Linux distribution available for PCs. I feel even linux newbies can start using it right away very easily. Kubuntu 8.10 came with KDE 4.1 and I upgraded it to KDE 4.2. It has cool Plasma effects (similar to Aero in Vista).

I am not new to linux, but its the first time I’m using it for everything (almost ;) .. Check out few screenshots of rocking combination Kubuntu 8.10 and KDE 4.2 on my Home PC.

24 Jan 09 Turned My Monitor Vertically

In office, we have Dell 22″ Widescreen LCD monitors for our Dev machines which have Oracle Enterprise Linux installed. I love this Linux box because of its high-end configuration and big monitor.

Few days back, I came to know that we can change the alignment of this monitor and make it vertical. At home, I have Viewsonic 19″ Widescreen LCD monitor but it cannot be rotated physically.

Yesterday I tried to turn my office monitor’s display vertical. And guess what, it was superb. I need not scroll much to view web pages or to view the code. And then I have set “Aishwarya Rai’s Jodhaa” wallpaper which made it look more beautiful. I may revert it back after few days, but for now.. I’m loving it ;)

Check out the pic of the my monitor and few screenshots of the desktop…
