All things considered, Sabayon 3.25 really is a mammoth distribution. The developers have obviously spent a lot of time and effort improving not only the look and feel, but also the functionality of their offering. And it was worth it.

I want to tell you a little story. One that involves: love, greed, selfishness, guilt, shame and finally—confession. A torrid little story this is.

I’ll be playing the part of the geek, Ubuntu will play the part of free software.

Kubuntu is a distribution which takes Ubuntu's base packages and adds to it the KDE desktop and a set of KDE applications. Although the two distributions are similar in many ways, their desktop and default set of applications are extremely different.
OpenOffice.org expert Solveig Haugland has published a massive new manual called the OpenOffice.org 2 Guide. This 520-page tome will be useful both for OOo newbies and power users who are interested in learning arcane features of the office suite.
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!
Out of curiosity, I downloaded and installed Looking Glass 3D 1.0. This stuff is pretty sweet. It reminds me a lot of the early days of Compiz, in the sense that there’s an enormous sense of potential, waiting to be tapped.
I finally got some time to write about Sun’s Project Looking Glass. You might have read my earlier article about installing Project Looking Glass on Ubuntu. Once installed, it creates an option in the login window as a session.
