A few weeks ago, I finally got my hands on a Linux-based Koobox Mini PCs. The Mini is a full PC in a very small, quiet package, and well worth a look.
During last week's column, I made mention that for reasons seemingly beyond my control, I needed to install a new Linux distro on my main production machine. Since it was literally lying on my desk in the pile of stuff brought back from LinuxWorld, I chose to try Freespire.
Frank J. Ohlhorst of CRN recently published “Advice To Linux: Kill The Penguin,” which may seem in line with my recent comments about product and project naming. Ohlhorst is missing something hugely important, but he does raise a solid point or two.
I like Sabayon Linux, I like the development team, I like how it looks, how it smells in my cd-burner …

The first release candidate of Mandriva Linux 2007 is out : "Mona, or Máni, God of the Moon, has been unleashed by Warly and the team. On the race to Mandriva Linux 2007, it's the first release candidate. Now that Tyr was put to sleep, there have been some changes.
PCLinuxOS has a lot to offer desktop Linux users, despite the fact that it suffers from an "incredibly boring name," suggests a newly published review at ExtremeTech. "It's a shame that so much utility has to be obscured by a bland name," reviewer Jim Lynch writes.
In the May 2006 issue of TUX, I covered the basics of newsletter creation with Scribus. In this follow-up article, I dig deeper into Scribus and choose a couple topics to explore further. The last article attracted good publicity for this powerful desktop publishing program (DTP). So, based on that input, I decided to focus on the most frequent requests.
Back in the day when GUIs weren’t in favor, and I had to walk up hill, both ways to get to my computer, a wonderfully powerful utility was born in the Unix world. This utility was and still is top.

In the course of my day, I generally use a wide variety of desktop environments. Although I spend most of my time in KDE, I do use GNOME, Microsoft Windows and Apple's OS X on an almost daily basis. When using these other environments, I realize just how much I've come to depend on Konqueror to simplify my work flow. I try to type fish:/ URLs into Apple's Finder. I am momentarily confused when a quick Alt-F2 media:/ fails to work as expected in GNOME. I feel downright lost in Windows without help:/. I guess I need to accept the fact that I'm addicted to KIO.
Oh sure, the following tests aren’t as scientific as putting all the browsers in a ring and seeing which one is left standing after the fight, but it’s close.
