Black Friday in the Linux Blogosphere

Filed under

So Turkey Day has come and gone for another year here in the good old U-S-of-A, but what comes next might be even better -- at least from a geek's perspective.

That's right, it's Black Friday once again, and the tech shopping deals are ripe for the picking.

Who has time to worry about Novell (Nasdaq: NOVL), Attachmate, Microsoft (Nasdaq: MSFT) or all those vulnerable newly acquired patents? And that next round of the ages-old "Year of Linux on the Desktop" debate will just have to wait. There's shopping to be done!

Linux Girl is considering an excursion into the netbook waters this year, and is now gathering her strength for the adventure down at the blogosphere's Broken Windows Lounge.

It might take more than a few Peppermint Penguins to make that happen, of course. In the meantime, she couldn't resist asking her fellow geeks what their own shopping plans entailed.
