Yes wine does allow some windows programs to run although I have not tried it yet. I have been using Ubuntu for over a week now and I think once you have all your programs set up it will be very easy to use and much faster. Its the setting up of programs that is the hard part.
Making wine work is also hard. You may need winetool and a lot of reading.


Yes that is what I suspected.

my thoughts on headsets:
for DNS, headsets feel very uncomfortable including the emf radiation.
so what I did, was I tried testing out turtle beach headset beyond the one included with DNS 12.
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B006W4 ... 00_s00_i00
for $31. I have to got to say, that that headset was absolutely terrible to buy or own.
it was not even a wireless like what i intended to purchase:
my review on it:
1) i expected it to be wireless, but it wasn't. i must have misread
2) i like how it has a nice ability to turn it off, switch
3) it doesn't feel as comfortable as advertised. esp with my eyeglasses on. could have improved by perhaps creating little slots in the headphone area that allows for eyeglass frame to fit through.

//additional unmentioned thoughts that were not added to amazon review:
i could try to use the mic only on the headset and get not plug the headphone jack in
the mute really doesn't mute the headphone sound, only the mic. i think what i really need is simply a microphone although difficult to find one specifically good enough or able to be wireless. it should have noise cancelling tech. not comfortable wearing this while lying in bed. the headset is designed for privacy. on top of that, headset gives a ton of emf brain pain. I should return my turtle beach headset for refund.

what i did just now, was I modified my original headset from DNS (was it plantronics?). I literally broke off the whole headset until it was nothing but the microphone as in I separated the headphones off and got nothing but the microphone left over.
1) i broke the half way point between the two headphones, with my bare hands, split it into two.
2) i used a wire cutter/scissors from klein tools. cut the headphone wire off, was sure not to cut the microphone wiring.
3) i finished it up to make it look smaller and simplified, by putting the plastic in the hole for the steel frame of my shelving unit and broke the thing apart like a wedge?/fulcrum? simple machine to make the breaking easier.
4) i cut off the corresponding wire that plugs into the headphones slot on the computer. i only have the microphone leftover and I only plug into the microphone component in. It seems to work fine. I do not need to buy a new mic at all!

another issue i hate about headsets, is that it does not let the computer sound get heard on the main speakers built-in on the computer, the sound is only allowed into the headphones on the headset. very irritating because i really don't like having the headset on all the time. thankfully, i can listen to the microphone only now, without the sound going into the headphones. the sound is clearly heard on the main computer speakers

Hewlett Packard makes terrible printers, albeit seemingly desiring in good faith effort.
All of the printers seem to be breaking super fast, and they keep losing their drivers. It could be an opinion though, i don't know.

out of date: http://www.tech-recipes.com/rx/3020/goo ... nt_button/

printer is nicer to have simply as a button on a browser, rather than always clicking to the print location on the browser bars or the ctrl + p.

virtual printers for browsers:
cutepdf
bull printer? not sure
google chrome's built in printer

The other thing:
I feel like I am being stalked and spied on over the internet. Windows 7 sure is not secure.
Like the news groups maybe? Or, the google/youtube ads? It is weird.
I honestly do not feel like buying windows 8 and simply skipping it for the next windows afterward in 4 years. Why bother wasting cash? However, at the same time, it feels like I do not have much choice but to upgrade due to so much clutter on my win 7.
I feel like I have tons of spyware/virus/adware via remote view access hackers.
I play games a lot on pc, so windows is like something I would keep using along with the exclusive software only for this, so yes I will have to buy windows 8 CD for my hard drive.

software is starting to turn incompatible with the OS. I think Bill Gates can be truly greedy sometimes.

i think this is best to be honest. Far cheaper license than windows 8. Will it work though? that is the next question. Will need to test it out and see. If I can simply get a screen recorder working decently and install spybot search and destroy and adaware, i can wait until windows 9 and buy that or maybe not even need to.

update: 4:48 PM
Great. I think it works.
Debut Video Capture Software Pro Edition
Fully featured, single installation license more info... $60 $39.95
however, the button config could be difficult. It has gaming mode too.

This definitely seems like it works way better than camtasia 7 and camstudio and fraps.

record = f5
pause = f6
stop = ctrl + f10

Sysinternals TCP View to see active connection and the software that use the network.

TDI monitor to see the log of network connection.

process monitor to see all active program and service, the application that call it, and the path of the application. Very usefull to identify trojan or virus because they are exe run from user directory instead of program directory.
