it probably will. if your worried that it wont, you could try the netbook version, which is less resource intense.

I have an extremely old PC that runs Xubuntu at the moment but I find it rather inconvenient to use. Will Luci Lynx rum on 128RAM and Integrated graphics card and a nameless (crappy chinese) CPU?

It's like a friendly version of Robot Wars which I LOVED.

There was one robot that has hydraulic stinger like a scorpion that it could use to pierce opponents or extend to right it's self. I can't remember it name but it should be listed as a UK contestant here

Can't wait to see some more vids!

Welcome to the competition, from Team 2590's captain (http://rhs2590.org or http://www.thebluealliance.net/tbatv/team.php?team=2590)

Not too shabby for your first year of competing, glad to see that you liked it! Sadly, I'm a senior and on the out, but maybe I'll run across you in my journeys as a FRC Mentor next year as I attend college~

Have fun at any offseason events, if you decide to go to any! They're a great time~

From 8.04 version I use Ubuntu. But every distribution is nicer from some closed-source crap ;-). Come on, who uses Windows or Mac? :D You can't even do the copy-by-selecting-text-by-mouse-and-paste-it-by-pressing-mouse-middle-button combo. You can't move windows around by holding Alt and dragging them. In terms of usage, they're crap to me.

I forgot about: "you can't just aptitude/yum/emerge/whatever install firefox" to get a supported and tested version of Firefox.

i take it you like Linux? :D what flavor? i use ubuntu sometimes when im not using OS X, or windows.

caching is really too aggressive and often makes you reading OLD content

i agree on this one, not really a problem for me or you, but the average use wouldn't probably realize what was happening and have no clue on how to fix it. also, the image compression makes images kills the look of site sometimes…

thanks for the input :D

EDIT: ha ha, lol :D i see you commented on that firefox bug

Firefox is really cool when it comes to number of extensions. It's outrageous. But it has two main problems:

  • speed (especially on Linux, Windows and Mac versions of Firefox are much faster than the Linux one)
  • reliability: entering web sites can crash your browser!

The Flash thing is actually a Flash issue, but the browser ideally should be resistant to plugins crashes just like Google Chrome.

Opera is really fast! Really really. Blazingly. But has a few problems as well:

  • caching is really too aggressive and often makes you reading OLD content
  • lack of some CSS3 things
  • JavaScript is slower than in other browsers (when testing with some benchmarks), but probably not noticeable in real world
  • it's hard to make Opera look natural in Linux environment, you need to actually find a skin that matches your desktop, such a "zero-skin" using the native GUI look should be the default one IMO

Safari not mentioned at all, because no Linux version is available.

Chrome seems veeeryyyy nice thing! It lacks extensions, but it seems this problem is quickly being solved by many many extensions being created last times. Other than that you need to manually enable native-GUI look, but it's quite possible (in contrast to Opera). The problem may be memory you need to run 30-80 tabs, but as long as you have much RAM Chrome may be the choice of many.

IE whatever version is not mentioned of course. Not Open Source, not even available for Linux, zero standard respect. Plenty of hacks to do in order to "support" this "browser".

That is my experience in browser area.
