Dell & Ubuntu's mighty Mini 9

Dell & Ubuntu's mighty Mini 9 Want a great Linux netbook for a great price? Then, give Dell's Ubuntu-powered Mini 9 a try. I like netbooks. They tend to be small, powerful and you can easily get them with Linux. Not all netbooks are created equal, though, and some are clearly better than others. One of the best is the Dell Mini 9.

In the not even two years since Asus changed the laptop world with the first true netbook, the Eee PC 4G, I've used many netbooks, such as the ASUS Eee 1000. My new favorite though is the Dell Inspiron Mini 9.

It starts with the look and heft of the device. Some netbooks feel like their prices: cheap. Not, the Mini 9. It feels solid and well-made.

The Licensing and Compliance Lab interviews AJ Jordon of gplenforced.org

So basically Bradley Kuhn gave a talk at FOSDEM '17 about GPL enforcement and I was like, wow, it sucks how many companies and people think that enforcing the GPL is a bad idea. I mean, if you disagree with copyleft that's fine (though I personally would argue with that position), but then you should use a suitable license. Like MIT. The very idea that we shouldn't enforce the GPL just doesn't make sense to me because it suggests that the text of the license is watery and unimportant. I don't know about you, but when I say I want my programs to respect users' freedom, I mean it. So GPL enforcement is important. It seemed to me that there are probably a lot of developers out there who want to support GPL enforcement but don't have a good way to voice that support. gplenforced.org is essentially a quick and dirty hack I wrote to make that dead-simple.
