Like anything in life it was ups and downs today with the new operating system. There was no chance to use during work today, but afterwards, I took some time to get the docking station and huge monitor working. It actually worked for a while, but in the end, I could not get it to dock and undock with the big monitor on my desk at work.
The ups- bluetooth support in Ubuntu far exceeds XP! It just worked right out of the box, no new drivers to install, no updates - something that my XP configuration is still dealing with, and still not working right.
We are making screencasts at work for Drupal education. Tonight I installed 'recordmydesktop', and was able to start making screencasts in about 5 minutes. That's a terrible name for a software program, but it's simple and it works well. I made a 2:30 video in ogv format, and the file size is just 13 mb. Too bad free formats are - well - free. If nobody can be taken advantage of, these open platform technologies get left behind. That's why you never heard of ogg theora!
