When I opened the local Fry's ad circular, one of the first things I spotted was the ad for a complete PC for $159. As you might guess, this PC for tightwads doesn't run any flavor of the Gatesian OS, instead the system ships with Linspire. We took the plunge and bought one, just to find out if it really could be a viable option.

It's a clever little thing - I had a hard time putting it down after picking it up. The mockup I saw was about the size of a large paperback book running a customized Red Hat distro to the processor and hardware specifications of the machine.
The Free Software Foundation (FSF) has announced a new annual award that honours the use of free software in "the service of humanity".
In November of 1990, Tim Berners-Lee, a researcher at Europe's CERN Particle Physics Laboratory, invented the very first web server and web browser. The web developed in a unique fashion, due to conditions unlikely to be repeated today.
