Evolution Of A Linux User

Filed under
Linux

linuxcanuck.wordpress: I don’t consider myself anything more than a Linux user. As such, I am not much different from many others. I have been around personal computers since its early days, so in that sense I am a bit of warrior. This is a personal account of how I came to use Linux.

Should We Boycott Microsoft? Can We?

Filed under
Microsoft
OSS

linuxjournal.com: I want to discuss something quite different: whether the open source community should be boycotting Microsoft, and if that is even possible. In part, the trigger for this is Microsoft's recent behaviour during the approval process for its OOXML document format. Now, it seems, Microsoft just can't snuggle up close enough to those cute little open sourcies.

Do You Really Need Anti-Virus Software?

Filed under
Security

maketecheasier.com: When a seasoned Windows user first migrates to Linux, the first question is always “where is the anti-virus?” I have been asked this question countless time and were always given the “you are lying to me” kind of look when I told them that they don’t need anti-virus software in Linux.

Quick look at Fedora

Filed under
Linux

laserjock.wordpress: Lately I’ve been messing around with Fedora. I’ve been using and developing Ubuntu for over 2 years and I decided to take a little break and try something different. Fedora 8 was really pretty nice. I was very pleasantly surprised to find in Fedora 8 a quick and responsive OS.

Get rid of your Linux bloat. Part 2.

Filed under
Linux

blogs.ittoolbox.com: So in part one we disabled unwanted or unneeded programs from starting up when we turn on our computer. However those programs are still installed and taking up space.

Red Hat's (and Sun's) missed SUSE opportunity

Filed under
Linux

Matt Asay: I posted a (substantiated) rumor last week about Red Hat getting first dibs on buying SUSE and ultimately passing on it. As it turns out, all sorts of people have come out of the woodwork to give me more information on Red Hat's near-miss on acquiring SUSE.

AJAX World - Who Will Win the Next Battle for the Desktop?

sys-con.com: The computer desktop today is what the television was to people in the 1980s. It’s the single most important channel for consumer entertainment and information. The computer desktop – as was the case with newspapers before there was radio and radio before there was television – has become the high ground from which empires are built.

OpenOffice.org and ODF adoption in Malaysia - thumbs up!

Filed under
OOo

bytebot.net/blog: In an interesting twist (interesting for Microsoft and their OOXML apologists), about a month ago, MAMPU, decided that they were going to go OpenOffice.org and go ODF, and dump Microsoft Office by year-end 2008. Now, you can hold them to their word.

Microsoft arguments against Linux are bollocks

Filed under
Linux
Microsoft

itwire.com: Microsoft PR threw down the gauntlet; “see how Windows Server 2008 stacks up versus Linux,” they say. There’s a “Get the Facts” URL being promoted with claims of direct comparisons between the two operating systems. Anyone reading the headlines alone could be fooled into thinking there’s substance to be found.
