aplawrence.com: That was a real question, asked by someone considering buying a new computer. It surprised me: I've been seeing more people asking if they should consider Mac or Linux, but this question goes way beyond that. It made me pause; the answer is complicated.
toolbox.com/blogs: The domino effect. This means that when one part of an electronic component fails, the surrounding parts also fail. Just like a row of falling domino's. The same thing can also happen in software. Linux does not have this problem due to the nature of the operating system.
writemsg.blogspot: First lets start with the good news. The gui is much more responsive. Interacting with the sidebar is a smoother experience. Not only has the underlying code obviously been reworked but the look and feel has been overhauled too. It fits in with my GNOME desktop better than before.
raiden.net: Microsoft has apparently changed it's mind about it's lineup of versions for Windows 7. So now, instead of a "netbook" version, they will apparently be offering their "starter" edition instead on notebooks. While they haven't said that verbally, their actions have spoken volumes about what they think of netbooks.

blogs.computerworld: In case you haven't guessed by now, I like desktop Linux. I admit though that Linux is stuck between a rock and a hard place when it comes to dealing with proprietary media formats. There are answers though to this problem and that's one of the reasons why I like the Linux Mint distribution.
linuxdevices.com: An educational software organization in Germany is pilot testing an educational software system based on virtualized Debian/KDE desktops, letting students and teachers access their desktops from home or school.
kmandla.wordpress: Everybody knows what a console application is like: Sparse. Unfriendly. Terse. Mute. Spartan. It’s part of the code of console applications. It has to be this way. It is the law of the jungle. That’s why we, as computer users, can no longer allow a program like calcurse to exist.
ghacks.net: If you work in a business environment then you know the value of the office application. And if you have ever thought about using Linux in your office you know there are boundaries to adoption. The good thing is those boundaries are growing smaller and smaller with every year.

linuxplanet.com: In a day of laptops and remote systems, it's often impractical to keep the same ssh session going to a specific server indefinitely. Screen is great for letting you start a terminal session, walk away from it, and then come back later.
linuxdevices.com: Access China and NEC Electronics are developing a "price sensitive" smartphone reference design incorporating the "new" Mini version of the Access Linux Platform (ALP) mobile stack.
blog.eracc.com: Recent articles I have read by people complaining about how things on Linux do not work like they do on Microsoft led me to coin the phrase Microsoft Trained Brain Syndrome (MTBS).

heise-online.co.uk: The volunteer organisers of the "Free and Open Source Developers' European Meeting" (FOSDEM 2009) demonstrated the fine art of scalability with a very well organised event. 250 talks for 5000 developers arriving from all over Europe, were held with very few problems.
danlynch.org/blog: I decided earlier this week I needed to rip a DVD and looked around at the available options on Linux. I’d heard a while back that the popular program Handrake had now released a Linux version with a GUI (Graphical User Interface) and it seemed a good idea to try it out.
makeuseof.com: Linux has a wealth of utilities to help you monitor what your system is up to. You can run commands, use the proc file system and get the exact state of your system. All this information is of little use if you cannot display it efficiently. You would need a system monitor right?

xenstreet.com: I must admit that I have not played any kind of computer games that seriously for a while. But Warzone 2100 has completely changed that for me. This game is something special. It seems I cant get enough of it.
saigonnezumi.com: Finally, I got Funtoo Linux, a derivative of Gentoo Linux, installed on my desktop. Funtoo is a distribution created by the founder of Gentoo, Daniel Robbins.
