From: Lisa Type [mailto:<REDACTED>] Sent: Thursday, July 17, 2014 9:37 AM To: <REDACTED> Subject: Synergy Hi <REDACTED>, Your Synergy trial has now expired. Please could you advise feedback and if you require a quote? :-) Kind Regards, Lisa Type Enterprise Specialist Synergy Software US: +1-650-265-2044 UK: 020 3598 3068 synergy-enterprise.com I’m sorry Lisa, but I’m really uninterested in paying for this software. Synergy does a wonderful thing, and I use it all the time but I can’t call it great software. I’m afraid that Nick’s ability to test code and predict corner cases is abysmal at best. Frankly, I spend about as much time fixing Synergy as I spend using it. I expect more from software if I’m going to pay for it. I appreciate Synergy (and Nick’s effort) a lot, and I’ve already donated money to support continued development. I’m willing to take some shit with the shine for Free software, but if Nick wants to turn this into a business he needs to seriously reconsider code quality and his release process. A wonderful case in point (and you can add this to your bug tracker) is an endless loop of “license expired!” alerts after the enterprise version trial period is over. I was forced to kill the application manually because the alerts blocked input. It made uninstalling the enterprise version a very cynically validating experience. --- Hovis submitted by hovissimo

Reddit: SSD partitioning for dualboot Win/Linux

Thursday 17th of July 2014 02:53:38 PM

Hi all,

As the title says I want to buy a SSD (most likely the 250GB Samsung 840 Basic) that I'd like to use for dual-booting Windows (Win 7 64-bit) and Linux (Xubuntu 14.04).

For Windows I'll have to take NTFS, Xubuntu will be installed on ext4 file system.

Now I'd like to know if anyone has been running into issues with a similar setup, whether with the bootmanager (grub 2) or something else?

Any input is highly welcome!
