Why Linux Sucks?

Filed under
Linux

feelwindows.blogspot: Linux has been there as an operating system for a long time and even though it's free, it has not been able to take a sizeable market share out of the Windows operating system. I tried to find out what are the main reasons behind this.

Why does Apple get a break?

Filed under
Mac

Steven J. Vaughan-Nichols: Want to know a dirty little secret? We, Linux and open-source users, love Apple's devices. Of course, that's not true of all of us. I'm sure Richard M. Stallman wouldn't be caught dead with an iPhone in his pocket.

The paradox of FOSS projects supporting Windows

Filed under
OSS

blog.linuxtoday: FOSS applications for Windows don't seem to get the same respect and support that their Linux counterparts do, even when they are genuine 100% GPL or BSD or whatever a person's favorite license is. Some say they are good introductions to FOSS; some think they're tainted and nasty and prop up the evil monopolist.

Spinmeisters taking over the Linux world

Filed under
Linux

itwire.com: There was once a time when the now-defunct Open Source Development Labs, then the employer of Linus Torvalds, used to style itself as the centre of gravity of Linux. Not long after, the edifice toppled under its own weight - probably the force of gravity shifted. Or maybe the restructuring it had to undergo in 2005 and 2006 was the cause.

Nepomuk and KDE to introduce the semantic desktop

Filed under
KDE

linux.com: If you follow technology trends, you have probably heard of the semantic desktop -- a data layer for annotating and sharing the information in your computer. But what you may not be aware of is that the semantic desktop is not a distant goal, but scheduled to arrive at the end of 2008. And, when it does, the idea will probably be implemented through the work done by the Nepomuk project, and, most likely, by KDE first.

Filed under
Moz/FF

mozilla.com: You’re writing an email to invite a friend to meet at a local San Francisco restaurant that neither of you has been to. You’d like to include a map. Today, this involves the disjointed tasks of message composition on a web-mail service, mapping the address on a map site, searching for reviews on the restaurant on a search engine, and finally copying all links into the message being composed. Enter Ubiquity.

linuxfud.wordpress: It is interesting to see the tides turning though. The press used to be full of “Microsoft Does It Again!” and “Is Linux Really Ready?” stories. Now, it is Microsoft’s turn.

The FLA Gets Some Traction

Filed under
OSS

ostatic.com: Have you ever heard of the Fiduciary Licence Agreement - the FLA? No, it's not an alterative to other free and open source license agreements that you're probably already familiar with, like the GPL, Mozilla License, and BSD License. Rather, it's an adjunct to any copyleft license.

Filed under
OS

bogs.techrepublic.com: I have been around the Linux community for more than 10 years now. From the very beginning, I have known that there are basic differences between Linux and Windows that will always set them apart. This is not, in the least, to say one is better than the other. It’s just to say that they are fundamentally different.

The problem, which also manifests itself on some versions of the Fedora and CentOS Linux distributions, means that some programs will take more than 100 (yes, one hundred) times longer to execute under Red Hat than other distributions.

How To Make Good Use Of 'grep' Command
