blogs.computerworld: Before charging out the door to buy one, though you need to think this through. You don't want to just rush out there and grab the first cheap machine you see. For example, if your ring size is '11,' than a 7" display netbook isn't going to be for you at any price.

siltala.net: This article is a humble opinion piece of a GNOME user who wishes to stop using communication software and just be in touch with people. I want to write mail to, chat with, talk to, and have video conferences with real people without worrying about applications and technology.

linux.com: Nowadays, everyone uses Ubuntu, most people have used Fedora, and many folks have tried openSUSE. SimplyMEPIS ... not so many. That's a shame, because this relatively obscure Debian-based desktop distribution from Morgantown, WV, is an outstanding desktop operating system. With SimplyMEPIS 8 at beta 5 and closing in on release, I tested the distribution and found it to be a keeper.

ariewijaya.blogspot: About four years ago, I tried to free myself from the oppression and misery of running Windows XP by installing Linux on my PC. Ever installed the Linux operating system?
