linuxgeeksunited.blogspot: Let's walk on the support side of the software world for a moment. There is a lot of talk, postulating and plain old FUD about what support is and should be in the FOSS world. Of course, we can break the topic into separate areas of discussion.
toolbox.com/blogs: This is a story of a twelve year old love affair that still has no end in sight. Part of that story involves Linux and how it enabled this blossoming of saccharine emotions.
