polishlinux: It may be a brave opinion but I predict that Ubuntu Linux and Windows Vista are going to be the two operating systems that will take over the largest chunk of the desktop OS market during the next couple of years. This comparison is based on my experience with both systems during the last couple of weeks on two different computers.
techrepublic: You might remember me covering Zonbu’s Zonbox recently. The Zonbox was a nice piece of hardware that had its limitations. Zonbu understands that and has come out with another product to raise the bar. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you the Zonbu Notebook. Now naturally I want to put this piece of hardware through the wringer to see if it is worth the $279.00** dollar price tag.
distrogue.blogspot: 2007. What a year. Ubuntu cranked out two more solid releases, sub-$500 laptops flooded the market, and 3D desktop effects continued to improve. The DistroWatch charts were invaded by Texans, and several new distros appeared on the scene.
kmandla.wordpress: After two or three installations and probably as many, if not more, kernel recompilations, I’ve come to the conclusion that CRUX Linux isn’t what I want.
dmartin.org: I bought a Asus Eee. It's a really nice machine. The interface is simple and easy to use, as best you can expect in such a confined space. The desktop isn't terribly pretty but, it really is a nice device.
In this HowTo I will explain how to install and use KVM for running your services in virtual machines.

alexeiz.blogspot: I wanted to try this OS on my computer over the weekend. So I downloaded and burned a CD and shoveled it into the CD drive hoping for a quick and easy install. I was wrong.
velocitywebdev.com: I read a recent post called “Why I Won’t Be Recommending Linux to Family this Holiday Season.” Th author makes a few good points about the various applications that family members use, but forget to tell you about. Things like the Sims or other games that don’t run well under Wine. Things like music under iTunes. The funny part is, the real reason…he doesn’t want to take the heat for telling them to use Linux and have something go wrong! Wimp!
Serdar Yegulalp: After my last post about how "failed" open-source projects aren't really failures at all, a colleague of mine provided me with more perspectives on that situation. The very way open source works, he claimed, is like an amortization of risk against failure in software development.
Want to try something a little different, build a FLiMP box it'll be faster and use less resources. I didnt want to run LAMP and i couldnt find an easy to follow guide on how to get a similar setup but using FreeBSD and Lighttpd my favourite os and webserver.
dot.kde.org: The KDE Release Team has decided to release KDE 4.0 this coming January. The release was originally planned for mid-December. The KDE developers want to solve a couple of essential issues before releasing.
cybernetnews.com: It’s December, and with the holidays just around the corner it is time to spruce up your browser to help spread the Christmas cheer! What you need are some Christmas Firefox themes to get the ball rolling.
radian.org: This week, Uruguay became the first-ever real, non-pilot deployment site of OLPC XO laptops. And I was there to hand out the first one.
it.gen.nz: I’ve been fiddling with Linux for a decade now. And, frankly, back then it was a total bear to get it working - you had to really, really, want to. How things have changed!
ubuntuguru.wordpress: Add some secret ninja power to your Ubuntu system today with Easy Crypt. With only a right click you can open or close a ‘top secret’ file, protected by military grade encryption (AES 512-bit Whirlpool). Easy Crypt is a cute little menu which brings the power of TrueCrypt to your system tray. No terminal commands necessary.
ubuntukids.org/blog: My kids (ages 7 and 11) do like to play games a bit and I encourage it on Ubuntu as a way for them to become familiar with the operating system and familiar with computing in general. So what is a father, teacher, Ubuntu user and not overly pro-game person to do? Enter Grubby Games.
ultramobilegeek.com: It's that time. Linux vs. Linux. 800x480 vs. 800x480. Mobile vs. Mobile. Slider slate tablet vs. Clamshell notebook. Fight! The first thing to address: Are these two devices truly competitors? The answer is yes - but only to consumers who don't know what they REALLY want.
