10 Basic Linux Questions, Answered – The Easy Way

Almost all my friends use Windows or Mac. (not many of them are geek like me.) And when I talk to them about Ubuntu (sometimes) they ask various questions.
I am trying to answer some of these questions in this blog post thinking that other Windows users might also have similar questions.
What comes out of these interesting discussions from various people who use Windows or Mac that they are in fact a little afraid to give Linux a try. And many of them just use Windows because they don’t even know that there can be a computer without Windows on it.

Disqus Blogger Comment Sync

@DISQUS Blogger native comment sync is one of the many things which I think is stopping lot of potential users to use DISQUS. Almost everyone using DISQUS wants to have this feature badly. All of them have been requesting this feature for as long as you can go back in history of DISQUS.
I don’t know why they are not able to achieve it already or why is it taking so much time, considering the fact, that other company (JS-Kit) has achieved it long back.
Till now I have been happy with DISQUS and just waiting for some of these feature. But the only reason I am not yet moving to JS-Kit is because I somehow don’t like the way comments look on blog using JS-Kit. Otherwise JS-Kit is a feature rich service which no other service has achieved so far.
Also, there is no feature which JS-Kit doesn’t have but others do.
So for now, I guess, I am just giving DISQUS some time before making a final decision. Just wish, the company doesn’t test the limit of users patience.

Thanks for your inputs as well Hugh.
