Okay, I'll admit the title was a bit harsh. Don't know why now I used that... Would you have read it though if it were called "nghost's uniqueness" ? maybe... The link actually doesn't bash on windows frontends, it just points out core differences. I don't think that windows frontends suck, actually most of them cover more of the features than nGhost does. I would like to see other frontends innovate (then I can steal their ideas and use them to take over the world...)
Tidder, you are correct that you can use nGhost with any distro you prefer. There is a package for ubuntu on the sourceforge download page: http://sourceforge.net/project/showf...kage_id=249517
you can get automatic updates if you install it from the nghost ubuntu repo:
It won't override any apps that you already have.
NeonDev, I believe you are right. I really feel bad that I was harsh. It is a noble cause to develop a frontend for the sake of learning to program. And it's quite satisfying to post it up here and get feedback. That's exactly what I did, in fact, if I hadn't of decided to try and do it on Linux first (or if visual studio wasn't so expensive), I'd probably have done YAWF (yet another windows frontend). I'm glad I stuck with Linux though, the knowledge you gain from learning Linux is definitely empowering.
I'm a jerk
