blogs.zdnet.com: OK, so over the past few months I’ve grown from being a Linux skeptic into being quite a Linux fan.

That said, there are a few aspects of Linux that do annoy/frustrate/anger me/make me hulk out.
jonobacon.org: Today we announced that we have decided to call it a day with LugRadio. Our last show will be LugRadio Live UK 2008 on the 19th and 20th July 2008 at The Lighthouse in Wolverhampton.
cybernetnews.com: Video tutorials are one of the easiest ways to figure out how to do something and for many people making the switch to Linux is one of the hardest things to do. So, why not make a bunch of video tutorials for Linux to make things a little easier?
