Installing VMWare in Ubuntu 7.10 was much simpler than I thought.
Open Terminal from the Applications – Accessories menu.
- Update the sources.list file. Enter password when prompted.
sudo vi /etc/apt/sources.list
Add this line with “gutsy partner” to the end of file:
deb http://archive.canonical.com/ubuntu gutsy partner
Save or :wq
- Run an update.
- Now install VMWare.
sudo apt-get install vmware-server
Wait for a little bit for installation to complete.
- After the install, access the VMWare Server from the Applications – System Tools menu and select VMWare Server Console.
- Just select Localhost and Connect.
Please refer to the VMWare documentation how to use VMWare.
sudo apt-get remove --purge vmware-server
sudo rm -r /etc/vmware
I just read the latest WordPress Weekly Digest and this line item grabbed my attention: The introduction of auto-suggest for tag entering. Wow. That is going to be one great feature. I guess it will all depend on what kind of auto-suggestion feature WordPress will implement. The two styles I’m familiar with are Google’s Search box which uses the pull-down menu, and del.icio.us in-line suggestion. See snapshots below. I like the del.icio.us feature because it’s simple, effective and non-obtrusive. It will be a perfect fit for WordPress. Regardless, I’m happy to have an auto-suggesting tagging in WordPress.
Del.icio.us’ feature appears and disappears if there is data in the tag field.
I just released Black-Letterhead 1.4. See it here!

GraffitiCMS claims it is an alternative to WordPress. Charles Stricklin mentioned it his blog. So did Matt. The question is, Is GraffitiCMS really better than WordPress? Let’s take a closer look.

It looks like WordPress wins hands-down. Graffiti claims the installation is faster than WordPress. Ok, I’ll give them that, although I know WordPress is by far one of the easiest software I’ve ever installed. By looking at the installation steps, the steps seem to be identical, perhaps GraffitiCMS even omitting certain steps to appear easier. I’m not about to pay $99 or $199 just to find out if the installation process is really faster than WordPress.
What is interesting is the word Free seems to crop up everywhere in the comparison chart. That’s the bottom line for me.
