The universe of UNIX tools changes constantly. Here are 10 tools—some you may have overlooked and some new—to tinker with.
patrick-nagel.net: Did you ever hear sentences like “Linux/Unix filesystems are superior, to stuff like NTFS, let alone FAT32 - you don’t even need a defragmentation tool.”?
pcworld.com: I take a live-and-let-live approach to computers that aren't mine. But this changed a few days ago when my father got a new laptop that had Vista pre-installed. He asked me to set things up for him and, to cut a long story short, he got Ubuntu 9.04.
itwire.com: Does GNU/Linux need a cult figure like Steve Jobs to spread the word and convert the doubters? And does FOSS lend itself to the development of such egos, where technical merit alone does not count?
sutor.com: Now that Microsoft is evidently going to try to ship Windows 7 for the late 2009 holiday season, I see this as a challenge to the Linux comunity.
celettu.wordpress: One of the best things about any Linux Desktop Environment/Window Manager, is the ability to have as many virtual desktops as you like. Funnily enough, whenever I put a Windows user on a Linux system, this is the thing they struggle most with.
daniweb.com: I wonder if the Linux Foundation is prepared to go to task for us, the Linux users, the Linux supporters, the Linux developers and the Linux Foundation members?

linuxplanet.com: Before Ubuntu there was Mepis. At that time it one of the most user-friendly Linux distribution available. Despite being overshadowed by the popularity of Ubuntu in recent years, SimplyMepis is still one of the most friendly desktop distributions in the Linux landscape.
blogs.telegraph.co.uk: The Linux movement is traditionally viewed as a bit archaic, elitist and closed to anyone with an IQ lower than MENSA's finest. I'm pleased to say that this culture is dying out and instead a new era of acceptance is seeing the doors opening to everyone.
