Recently I purchased an eeepc 1000H and was quite impressed with the new and different operating system. I hail from a windows only background and anything apart from the Microsoft offerings I have left well alone, until NOW.
ostatic.com/blog: Now here is an open source (or at least partially open source) project that may have a strong chance of drawing legal action from Microsoft: ReactOS.
lovehateubuntu.blogspot: The first step to learning Linux is actually installing it. There are some pre-requisites to installing it yourself, as there would be with installing any operating system: you need some computer know-how.
Caitlyn Martin: During the holidays I received some Hanukkah gelt from family specifically earmarked for buying myself a new computer. I ordered the one that seemed to give me the most power for the least money in a very small and lightweight case: a Sylvania g Netbook.
arstechnica.com: Yesterday, while looking through the Comdex news feeds, I stumbled across a Mini Mi 1000 HP product announcement from HP. What caught my eye on the product page wasn't the description of the GUI, it was what followed on the next line. Preceded by "Please note" in bold, the HP page states "the Linux command line interface is disabled on this edition."
blogs.the451group: I wrote last year about how 2008 would be the ‘Year of Non-desktop Linux’. As we embark on 2009, I have a similar view, but in keeping with all of the turkey and ham and leftovers from the holidays and to present a more appetizing analogy, I envision the ‘2009 Linux Sandwich.’
Dana Blankenhorn: It’s what every red-blooded capitalist with a Microsoft button most fears, and rails against here and elsewhere, especially when we talk about open source in the developing world. Mandate open source?
meandubuntu.wordpress: I thought I might make a list of ways to contribute to Ubuntu (or Linux in general), and provide my thoughts on them. I’ve tried to list them in rough order of “difficulty”, from easy to hard, where difficulty means how much effort it takes.
blogs.zdnet.com: Is there anyone NOT making netbooks these days? ViewSonic, best known for making monitors, digital picture frames and projectors, has hopped into the netbook game, launching the VieBook.
blog.mandriva: Pixel will be leaving Mandriva on February. We would like to take the opportunity to thank him for his commitment and endeavour whilst at Mandriva and we wish him every success in his future activities.
lwn.net: 2008 proved to be an interesting year, with great progress in useful software that made our systems better. Of course, there were some of the usual conflicts. Here is LWN's eleventh annual timeline of significant events in the Linux and free software world for the year.
phoronix.com: GParted is not exactly the ideal program for new Linux users to familiarize themselves with if all they want to do is format a USB drive or external storage device. Fortunately, a new GNOME utility has come about that is designed to be simple yet powerful.
vwbusguy.wordpress: I am a fan of the gnome desktop. I respect KDE, but don’t use it, and to be fair didn’t try the KDE version of openSuSE. Since OpenSuSE ships gnome 2.24, I had assumed my UI experience would be somewhat similar.
pcmech.com: Didn’t get enough games in part 2? Here are some more!
maketecheasier.com: This is an updated version of my previous post Turn Ubuntu Hardy into Mac OSX. That post was written six months ago and many things have changed during this period of time.
earthweb.com: Is OpenOffice.org (OOo), the popular free office application, "a profoundly sick project," as developer Michael Meeks alleges? Or are his comments a poorly concealed effort to promote Go-OO, Novell's version of OOo, as the anti-Novell lobby suggests?
bmighty.com: Linux support and documentation sites are a dime a dozen -- and some aren't worth much more than that. Here are a few sites that really give you your money's worth . . . or at least they would, if most of the content wasn't already free.
- Artwork for Ubuntu Jaunty Already Impressive
- Jaunty Jackalope - New Volume Control Applet
alternativenayk.wordpress: Enough is enough. After numerous attempts to get openSUSE 11.1 working, including many many reinstalls, I finally erased everything in favour of Linux Mint 6 (Felicia… whatever that means!).
