Chris writes, "Hey! Happy new year Just wanted to let you know that I've launched that new website of mine, http://makethemove.net." Make The Move aims to present Linux and open source software as viable alternatives to the system on your computer.

I found myself reading an article on Mainframe.gr explaining how 2006 was another lost year for Linux and I couldn't help myself but write this response in disagreement.

Those that have followed this site for a while know that I occasionally post a book review. There really are a lot of Ubuntu based books hitting the market anymore and many of them really are very good!
