velocitywebdev.com: I read a recent post called “Why I Won’t Be Recommending Linux to Family this Holiday Season.” Th author makes a few good points about the various applications that family members use, but forget to tell you about. Things like the Sims or other games that don’t run well under Wine. Things like music under iTunes. The funny part is, the real reason…he doesn’t want to take the heat for telling them to use Linux and have something go wrong! Wimp!
Serdar Yegulalp: After my last post about how "failed" open-source projects aren't really failures at all, a colleague of mine provided me with more perspectives on that situation. The very way open source works, he claimed, is like an amortization of risk against failure in software development.
Want to try something a little different, build a FLiMP box it'll be faster and use less resources. I didnt want to run LAMP and i couldnt find an easy to follow guide on how to get a similar setup but using FreeBSD and Lighttpd my favourite os and webserver.

ubuntukids.org/blog: My kids (ages 7 and 11) do like to play games a bit and I encourage it on Ubuntu as a way for them to become familiar with the operating system and familiar with computing in general. So what is a father, teacher, Ubuntu user and not overly pro-game person to do? Enter Grubby Games.
ultramobilegeek.com: It's that time. Linux vs. Linux. 800x480 vs. 800x480. Mobile vs. Mobile. Slider slate tablet vs. Clamshell notebook. Fight! The first thing to address: Are these two devices truly competitors? The answer is yes - but only to consumers who don't know what they REALLY want.

kmandla.wordpress: A common misconception on the Ubuntu Forums is that people directly involved in its development aren’t common visitors.
