the inquirer: XP IS GETTING a bit long in the tooth, Vista is a pig and you don't want to buy a Mac and join the Jobs Cult. So, you're thinking of having a look at Linux, but are bamboozled by the hundreds of flavours and don't want to spend a weekend discussing it with disturbingly intense bearded men in socks and sandals. So here is the Inquirer's guide to Linux: quick, clear, opinionated and unfair.
afifplc.blogspot: My first experience with Linux was 8 years ago, a few years after my Dad bought me my first ever computer. The first Linux OS that I tried was RedHat Linux. Back then I didn't know much about computers. So after a few tries I gave up and decided to stick to Windows until now.
jjesse.wordpress: There has been a lot of discussion in regards to what exactly going on with the next version of Kubuntu 8.04, the Hardy Heron. I am a little disappointed to find out the 8.04 will not be a long term release for Kubuntu due to the nature of KDE4 being released.
nowwhatthe.blogspot: I wrote about the performance of KDE 4 some time ago, and I'd like to revisit it. Now it's possible to have it clean and fast, and I did indeed see an increase in performance when trying it.
linux.com: Joomla!, a popular content management system (CMS) for Web portals, is easy to install and maintain, and has thousands of components, modules, and Mambots for almost every thinkable function a Web site could possibly need. Here are a few extensions that I find indispensable.
movingparts.net: Okay, well, I mean, it’s always been cool. I’ve been using it for a few days instead of Firefox and it’s nice to see some of the new things in the Opera camp since I had last used it.
linuxondesktop.blogspot: A Few weeks back Adobe released the new version of their popular Flash Player( Adobe Flash Player 9 Update 3, version identifier 9,0,115,0) on the Linux platform. To install Flash Player in Ubuntu 7.10 type in the following command in the terminal window:
paul murphy: I was thinking about the future of Linux when it occurred to me that one path for its future can seen as a simple consequence of what we mean by “winning.” In other words, asking whether Linux will still be a winner in ten years leads first to the question of what we mean by “winner” and then to an answer about where Linux is going.

adventuresinopensource.blogspot: I've been running Zenwalk 4.8 almost a week now and it did give some me more time to get a feel for it. I'd been told it was Slackware without the hassle, I'd even been told it was good for new users. Could this be true? Here's how I got on in my week with Zenwalk...
topicalmatt.com: Problem is, Ubuntu 7.10 Gutsy Gibbon comes with an unstable version of Firefox 3, in the form of a “firefox-granparadiso” package, and it’s only Alpha 8, which doesn’t have the features and stability of the past few releases. There’s a simple way to upgrade this package, keeping all links, etc. intact.
kmandla.wordpress: It will sound snide, but I realize that the reason it was so funny to me is that people still think Xubuntu is intended for older hardware. The fact that it’s even discussed should be a clue to the contrary.
blogs.pcworld: I've received word from the OLPC folks that shipment of the XO
$100 $200 laptop I'm entitled because I paid for one for a child in a developing nation has been delayed.
apparentlymart.livejournal: I've just recieved my Dell Inspiron 6400 with Ubuntu preinstalled. Almost everything worked flawlessly out of the box, but there were two oddities:
“This is the answer from Hoang le Minh (Vice director of HCMC Post & Telecom service - Government) to a reporter from Echip questioning him about the Classmate PC project from Intel and the possible choice of Hacao linux as operating system (instead of Windows). In summary : the CMPC has some physical limitations (256 MB Ram, 1 GB Flash memory) which prevents it from effectively using Windows operating system.
mepis.org: MEPIS has released SimplyMEPIS 7.0. Some of the important packages included with the 7.0 release are: an updated and security patched 188.8.131.52 kernel, Xorg 7.1.0, KDE 3.5.8, OpenOffice 2.3.0, and Firefox 184.108.40.206.
economist.com: Rejoice: the embrace of “openness” by firms that have grown fat on closed, proprietary technology is something we’ll see more of in 2008. Verizon is not the only one to cry uncle and reluctantly accept the inevitable.
pintooo15.livejournal: I tested the live version of sabayon linux 3.4f mini edition (CD) 64bit on my dell inspiron 1501 with AMD Turion tl-56 dual core. Key components are sata hard disk, ati onboard graphics accelerator, broadcom ethernet and wifi and other untested parts
stuff.techwhack: amaroK is the ultimate music management software, and for a casual music buff like me, it’s the best you can get out there. What separates amaroK from the other popular players in the market are its features which are targeted to make music management and playback easy, and a pleasing experience. Here, I’ve highlighted some of the key features of amaroK.
itmanagement.earthweb: There are two things that I know with absolute certainty to be true; that Elvis is dead and that Linux poses no immediate threat to Microsoft’s business model.
