blogs.computerworld: Recently, the Free Software Foundation announced its latest additions to its listing of open-source purist distributions.

blogs.zdnet.com: I have been a proponent of the Linux operating system and Open Source for quite some time. I’ve been using Linux on a day to day basis. However, I have never been able to use Linux as my exclusive operating environment.
linuxlock.blogspot: I along with about every other Linux blogger got all bunched up over Microsoft "training" Best Buytm, Office Depottm and Staplestm in the art of besmirching Linux.
everyjoe.com: We must learn to research further when someone writes something like 3 reasons why we should not use Linux. Many people already responded to the post and have told the blogger the things that debunk his/her arguments. The blogger was too general about his/her comments about Linux.

elevenislouder.blogspot: Recently, I stumbled upon a new Linux distribution aimed at the x86, general use, desktop microcomputer. Naturally, I had a bit of an urge to groan, moan, and otherwise throw a temper tantrum. The predisposition to loathe new Linux distributions is not based in a dislike of Linux distribution plurality, but more of a dislike for redundancy.
