raiden's realm: Most people who do backups use expensive backup software and/or hardware to do their backups while others use somewhat clumsy, selective backups through manual methods. Those are alright, but I've got something better.
channelinsider: So, you just delivered that new PC to your customer and gave them a quick tour of what's new and then watched their eyes glaze over with confusion. This leaves just two choices: force your customers to learn and use Vista or offer something else, which doesn't add any costs.The answer lies with the open-source community and more specifically, Linux.
computerworlduk: Microsoft may not have beaten French Linux vendor Mandriva in a large deal to supply Nigerian elementary schools with laptop computers and software after all.
Dana Blankenhorn: Microsoft has extended its cheap software for education plan, aimed at strangling open source in its crib, to Russia. CNews, a Russian IT publication, reports Microsoft is working with Intel and a Russian charity on a plan to double the number of PCs in Russian schools.
iTWire: I've been a full-fledged Ubuntu Gutsy Gibbon user for more than a week now, I'm completely off Microsoft Windows and I couldn't be happier. For some reason, however, I keep getting emails and posts urging me to try other supposedly superior Linux distributions for newbies - PCLinuxOS and SimplyMEPIS, among others. Intrigued, I have decided to check this out for myself. Is Ubuntu the best or merely the best backed distro?
Debian Administration: Users of Debian's unstable branch, sid, will have noticed that their systems haven't been updated over the previous few days. This is because one of the core Debian machines is unavailable.
gameinfowire.com: Electronic Arts Inc. announced the company will donate the original SimCity — the blockbuster 1989 game credited with giving rise to the city-building game genre — to each computer in the One Laptop per Child (OLPC) initiative.
yalb: Imagine a world where you were told how to think, feel, and act. You were told what to buy...told what not to buy. We’re not as far off as you may imagine.

linux.com: Linux Mint is a derivative distribution of Ubuntu. Its purpose, according to its Web site, "is to produce an elegant, up-to-date, and comfortable GNU/Linux desktop distribution." Unfortunately, it falls short in at least one of those areas, and suffers from several other disappointing shortcomings
ubuntu geek: For all those who are beginners in any linux(ubuntu) find hard to find the package files of their distro and end up in finding an source package(which is either in tar.gz or .gz). lets now see how would you be installing source files in ubuntu.
Also: A fallback installation routine?
You probably know this: you power on your machine, and immediately after you have logged in you manually start your two or three favourite applications. Why not have the system start these applications for you automatically? This short guide shows how to accomplish this under GNOME.
Don't you get the feeling that Microsoft isn't all that serious about interoperability to begin with, and everything they do has a catch behind it all?

nitevilla.net: I have been a big supporter of Ubuntu over the last few years and I have been using Ubuntu for many, many releases. I noticed beginning with the last release of Ubuntu that the distro was becoming a bit heavy. In my opinion this eye candy stuff is quickly destroying what was so great about Ubuntu.
adventuresinopensource.blogspot: This time around I decided to try out another distribution I'd never used before in the shape of MEPIS. I started off with simplyMEPIS 6.5 which seemed a bit dated but luckily it was pointed out to me that 7.0 is due out very soon.
kororaa.org: Although most people have probably already assumed this due to lack of activity, I would like to formally mention that I do not intend to make another Kororaa release. I will soon take down the forums, wiki and eventually this web page.
zdnet: As I’ve been poking around with Mandriva Linux for the last week or so, I’ve been impressed with it’s apparent ease of use, quick installs, and out-of-the-box feature set.
techiemoe: Many times on LinuxForums I've come across folks who wanted to run Linux on an Apple computer. Most of the time the first question I ask of them is "If you have an Apple computer, why not just run OS X?" Until this past week, I could not have answered this question.
polishlinux: Detailed and proper documentation of source code and programs is the milestone of Unix culture. The first application on Unix was the platform to prepare documents. Usually the first and most basic information source about a given program are man pages.
