kmandla.wordpress: I do my best to contain my emotions when I run across something on the forums that irritates me. What has gotten my goat lately (aside from the random nitpicking over default themes), is the constant attempts to earmark command line use as some sort of detriment to Linux altogether.

nathive.org: Finally packages and portable versions of Nathive 0.810 alpha are ready to download. I hope you enjoy testing and coments me your impressions.
arstechnica.com: The developers behind the increasingly popular Ubuntu and Fedora Linux distributions announced the availability of new beta releases last week. These betas, which offer users an opportunity to get an early look at the functionality that will be included in the next major versions, are already highly polished and showcase the growing maturity of the desktop Linux software ecosystem.
Reading Lisa's and Don's stories remind me of my Linux roots. Many of their thoughts and experiences reflect my own and got me to reminiscing. My path was a bit more convulted and sometimes I chuckle, but I'm here now and I'm staying.
I was a techno-dinosaur, resisting the call of the computer with all my might. Finally on January 1, 2004 I took the plunge, bought a computer with Microsoft XP. Since then, Don has become interested in building computers and installing Linux distros on them.
I never liked Windows. Maybe that's why Linux captured my interest and imagination from the first time I heard about it but I was reluctant to just jump in and give it a try because it was difficult to imagine how anything free could truly be any good. Things started to change when somebody gave us a Ubuntu live CD.
beranger.org: Observed by Planète Béranger, as a protest against the low quality of the distributions built around the Linux kernel. All of the mainstream GNU/Linux distributions fail to provide with acceptable quality, usability, trustworthiness and proper support, being it paid or not. For the current week, Planète Béranger will ignore whatever is related to any known Linux distro.
itwire.com: In our modern, and busy, world the separation between home computers and home entertainment systems is fast fading. Linux makes it a cinch to build your own PVR, allowing you to watch, pause and record live TV broadcasts.
Glyn Moody: All around the world, it seems, people just can't get enough of this amazing free office suite, which is now turning in serious market shares in some countries.
headshotgamer.com: I'm a gamer and I'm a Linux user. Yes, this puts me in a very small group of people in the world. The mass majority of gamers are either consolers (Wii, PS2/3, Xbox 360) or Windows gamers. They do often ask “What games can you play on Linux? Isn't it just a command prompt?”. You can game on Linux and you have quite a few options.

sakana.fr/blog: I’ve recently switched to the Gentoo Linux distribution (mostly to experiment with this Linux distro) and I don’t regret it so far. This post is about my first impressions about Gentoo.
