linuxplanet.com: I wandered over to the Apple section. You see, I wanted to see what a MacBook Air looked like. As I looked at the screen, I could see my face being picked up by the built-in Webcam. The application doing so is something called Photobooth. I looked at it and thought, "Hey, that looks like Cheese in Linux."

10minutetech.net: I’m a Windows Guy. I’ve wanted to see if I could walk on the Linux side for a while now. I wanted to see if I could really switch over and do all the things I need to do easily. So I decided to give it a try.
Dana Blankenhorn: My first Linux laptop is the ASUS EeePC. This is a sweet machine in many ways. But if you’re a touch typist this is going to hurt.
Matt Hartley: "Software alternatives are just not available for Linux.”
I hear the statement above almost everyday. What makes the statement so ridiculous is that it is completely inaccurate 99 percent of the time. When I hear this coming from schools...I find myself shaking my head in complete disbelief.
