blogbeebe.blogspot: The website Planete Beranger recently published an interesting post "Wrong ways to promote the FOSS", from which the title of this post was taken. The core observation is no such thing as a "troll". This is a word invented by the most puerile of the FOSS aficionados.
bulletspawn.wordpress: I’ve tried many user friendly distributions such as Ubuntu, Mandriva, Mint, Pclinuxos… but there’s always been a reason for me to switch. In absence of Pclinusos 2008 I decided to try Pardus 2008 exactly one week ago…
earthweb.com: When browsing the net, I’m safest when I’m using Mozilla’s Firefox 3.0 browser—at least after I’ve tweaked it just a bit. Yup, I have absolutely no doubt about it. But instead of just taking my word for it, let’s take a closer look at why I believe this to be true. First, let me describe the contestants.
debian.org: Welcome to this year's 6th issue of DPN, the newsletter for the Debian community. Some of the topics covered in this issue: DebianDay 2008, DPL-initiated teams survey finished, and Bits from the testing security team.

freesoftwaremagazine.com: Recently a blog post entitled “Why Desktop Linux is its own worst enemy has come across my feed-radar a few times. It’s yet another in the long line of “Linux ain’t ready yet” jeremiads and it doesn’t really say anything new yet it got on my nerves. Why?
workswithu.com: About a year ago, I installed Ubuntu on the laptop owned by a friend of mine who lives back east. Here’s her Ubuntu story … back in 2007, and today.
ittoolbox/blog: In the past ten years Open Source software and its poster child, Linux, has expanded quite remarkably. It has changed from a rebel without a cause to an entity that even the tried and true establishments have sat up and taken notice. Yet Linux and open source seems to have hit a glass ceiling.
manilastandardtoday.com: ACER will be rolling out the Aspire One mini-notebook this week in Manila, its answer to the ground-breaking Asus Eee-PC. When it was introduced at the Taipei Computex last month, Aspire One seemed to be the most credible challenger to the Eee PC. But in a rapidly growing market, what’s hot is a fast-moving target.
blogbeebe.blogspot: Here's a proposal I throw out to the world: Who would work with me to 'fork' KDE 3 and rebuild it with QT 4.x (4.4 at this point)? This would be the entire KDE 3 environment. I'm curious to see if anyone would step up and work with me to establish a new branch, porting KDE 3 to QT 4.4.
