This article will look at making your GNU/Linux machine look beautiful.

But usually, I'm not all that interested in those fancy ultra mobile devices everyone is supposed to buy these days. But the EEE PC is running Linux, so my interest was piqued. Great for Linux? Wait... where IS Linux?

Matt Asay: The rising generation of programmers isn't being fed .Net and Windows. It's growing strong on Linux and its associated LAMP stack, as Robert Guth of the Wall Street Journal notes. Microsoft thinks it has an answer to this trend toward Linux. It is very telling how far from reality Microsoft is by its response:
internetnews.com: For more than 20 years, GCC has been at the heart of free and open source software development as the compiler of choice.
