raiden.net: One of the hallmark Linux distributions for new users that we've been very pleased with has been Linux Mint. As I've said before, it's built on Ubuntu and is essentially "Ubuntu done right". With the introduction of version 5, Linux Mint has upped [the] level.
csmonitor.com: In South Africa a “free” download here can end up costing almost $100. This is where the Freedom Toaster comes in. “What if open-source can really be open-source, even here?” he says, scrolling through a menu of possible downloads on the happy orange screen.

hydrapinion.com: A week or so ago, one of the online shopping sites I frequent was selling Eee PCs on the cheap.
