deja vu

Postby llivv » 2007-05-02 02:16

I just heard about compiz today which brought back memories of java desktop in it's beta stages.
So I went to double check it to see if there are still any similarities to what it used to look like and what compiz screenshots show. {no deja vu yet.}
I'm just getting carried along with the tide here, and don't know didly about progeny except what I read about it in debain history. But, I have also done a bit of reading on the mandrake issues that seem to run "similar" paths as least as far as "things that can go wrong when mixing free/commerical versions of Linux .
Just weird kinda timing deja vui things all day!
In memory of Ian Ashley Murdock (1973 - 2015) founder of the Debian project.

Progeny is when Ian went over to the dark side. :D
The man gives *birth* to one of the greatest ideas and then somehow fell off the wagon....
Now him and ESR are buddies on the spire-train....

I know I am silly!
