earthweb.com: For most people, computing comes down accomplishing their daily tasks with as much time saved and cost efficiency as possible.

celettu.wordpress: I’m a big fan of Arch. It’s the Swiss army knife of Linux distributions, with the possibility to install as little or as much as you want. However, I’m also a fan of Ubuntu and when I install Linux on the PC of a friend who wants to try it, that’s the distribution I’ll use.
tech-no-media.com: One of the questions that some beginners do worry about is "from where do I get Linux?" After all most people received their current operating system preinstalled with their computers or purchased it in a box at a retailer such as best buy or office depot.
blogs.computerworld: The Windows' fan club likes to point out that Windows is far more popular than Linux. The reason for that has nothing to do with quality and everything to do with monopoly. Nothing shows that better than the semi-annual TOP500 list of the world's most powerful supercomputers.
linuxfoundation.org: MIDs are not the desktop. So, to say Linux is making strides on the desktop because it is making strides on netbooks, phones, and the like is inaccurate in my opinion.
ghacks.net: So you’ve been reading about Linux on ghacks for a few months now and you’ve noticed plenty of screenshots or images of applications in action. Now it’s time you found out just how those images are taken.
phoronix.com: Now just a mere six months later, we have Alien Arena 2009 and it brings more graphics improvements along with many other technical improvements and new game content.
h-online.com: David Miller has stepped in to maintain the IDE subsystem, but plans to make it maintenance only, with no major development work. On Friday, one LinuxTag venue will be dedicated entirely to the Linux kernel.
computerworld.com: Ever since Palm unveiled the Pre and its brand new mobile operating system, webOS, in January at the CES 2009 show, Palm's smartphone has been the talk of the Web. That's for good reason.
