MA: "I assured her he was fine. But this system was able to befriend a child, and converse with her to the point that it began to create a working knowledge base of who she was and what she dreamed would be their future. It communicated & understood her."Amazing that Armstrong had Artificial General Intelligence so long ago when the rest of the world still has made no progress.

I've noticed some people who aren't IT people, who surround themselves with IT people, use the lingo as if they were. Ultimately they're speaking above their station, but they think they know enough to speak with confidence. It's possible MA works with lots of programmers and so he feels he has more knowledge than he has.

My son wants to learn Linux and accepts his friends' advice that he would learn best with Gentoo, a metadistribution. I think this is a recipe for frustration and disappointment. Any experience of Gentoo?

No but there are so many distributions, it's hard to keep up. What makes you think this will be a mistake?

It seems to require compilation of the kernel which is a bit of a fetch for someone with no real IT experience.

I have Mint, Ubuntu and Puppy on various old machines so am trying to encourage a more gentle learning experience but youth will not be told

Erewhon888, It depends how much he wants to learn, recompiling the kernel in Redhat 4.2 is where I started. If he's got a friend to help him learn the unix shell and build up Linux it can be quite rewarding.

It's good if you want to learn how computers work, which is probably nothing a mac user is interested in... :whistle:

Or not as the case may be, wake me up when you can get Adobe software for linux. :roll:

Pixel8r, Adobe works perfectly in a VM on Linux for the 25th time! :D

Not from all the stuff that is posted all over the web, old versions of PS run slowly by all accounts.

Pixel8r - Tue Jul 22, 2014 12:05 pm
The problem is that a vm linux can only run 32bit PS, which makes it really slow and not able to access much memory

The web is wrong, it's full of idiots with half ideas. I've said before with the virtualisation extension to chips, the hardware is shared and that's why it's native, the guest and the host run at the same speed, it's effectively shared hardware. Type 1 hypervisors were different.

I'm pretty sure you can run 64bit Adobe, I can't see any reason why not unless you have a compelling link.
