What you will find

This used to be the place where I wrote stuff I was thinking about while working on the Mozilla project.

Maybe in the near future I'll start to update it again as I'm involved in a couple of new open-source projects - updates pending...

Ubuntu vs. Source Insight

Why did I reboot?Posted by Mike Kristoffersen 01 Apr, 2009 10:44:17
I'm one happy man right now :) as you know if you follow this blog, I have been using Scratchbox under Ubuntu (Linux) to compile for the Nokia device - now I quite like Linux but I also like visual and userfriendly GUI tools :)

My main tool when looking in code is Source Insight, I haven't found any other tool that helps so much when trying to understand code - but guess what I now have it running in Linux by the help of wine, it was just so easy:

sudo apt-get install wine

Then I went to the homepage of source insight, downloaded the windows version... well, the only version... it installed, and fired up - that's it - a few minutes to create a project and scan the files, and I was ready to go - maybe later I will try with Beyond Compare the best compare tool - like the new 3-way merge they have made :)

Now I'm seriously considering kicking Vista out from my private desktop and using Linux for everything :) - might do a dual boot for the rare ocasion where I want to play a game.
