madgreek65.blogspot: Last week I wrote the first part of this series which discussed the installation of Mepis, Kubuntu, OpenSuse, and Freespire on my laptops. Now that I have had time to play with each of the operating systems I would like to discuss my impressions of the different distributions.

server watch: While the Linux and Unix universes have always provided a wealth of high-quality, powerful servers for all occasions, putting all the pieces together has traditionally been a task for the seriously geeky. Ubuntu entered the pre-fab server stack parade back in version 6.06 (Dapper Drake), and has been refining it with every release.
Reuters: A computer developed for poor children around the world, dubbed 'the $100 laptop,' has reached a milestone: Its price tag is now $200.

Linux Planet: There's an enormous difference between your average PC consumer and the hardcore computer enthusiast. One of the key differences is how much time someone is willing to expend on a system. The hardest of hardcore abandon the mainstream world of Windows and Mac and have switched to a Linux distro.
linux.com: Most streaming audio and video on the Internet is disseminated in proprietary formats such as RM, RAM, WMV, and ASF. Fortunately, the open source application MPlayer can play and even record streams in almost any format.
arstechnica: Colin Walters of Red Hat chaired a FOSSCamp session about Hotwire, a unique and innovative graphical shell environment designed to improve the command-line user experience. I've been testing Hotwire releases for some time now, so the opportunity to see Walters present his invention in person seemed too good to pass up.
linuxquestions.org: The folks here at Dell France simply cancelled my order, pretexting that it was just a time-limited one and that systems with Ubuntu are no longer shipped, whereas their site still boasts of offering "AT LAST and BY SPECIAL REQUEST" open-sourced systems ! Now, WTF is that ?
desktoplinux: When I downloaded Freespire 2.03 for review, I wasn't sure what I was going to get.
