Tux Machines (TM)-specific
zdnet.com: Some days, it’s just not fair. You know you’re going to post something that’s going to have the fanboys heads spinning. True journalistic integrity requires you light a flame and watch it burn.
dodonov.net: At request from my friends from ROSA Labs , I was using a mac os x-based machine this week, to get a feeling on how it works, feels and looks like. As I had never used a mac before, it was certainly a nice experience, and I think I managed to extract the feeling of what is fundamentally different.
junauza.com: Apple claims that OS X Lion has over 250 new features; however, only a handful of them are truly Wow!-worthy. If you’ve been a long-time Ubuntu-user, you must have noticed how inspired it is from Mac OS X. Well, if we’ve got a similar UI, then why not have some common features?
datamation.com: Over the years, I've come very close to giving OS X serious consideration for replacing my existing Linux PCs. Recently I decided to look into my mindset a little more closely.
macworld.com: When the weekend comes, Macalope likes to put his hooves up and enjoy some alfalfa and a grain-based beverage. Is that too much to ask? Apparently it is, according to PCWorld’s Katherine Noyes. Why else would she have so thoughtlessly decided to write this insipid piece—”Post-MacDefender, Linux Looks Better Than Ever“—about Mac and Linux security?
linuxinsider.com: It's been just a little over a year since Linux Girl last raised the "pad" question with Linux bloggers, who were noncommittal at best back then. Now that we're on to the next iteration, she couldn't resist checking back to see if their opinions have changed.
petur.eu: Linux is, without doubt a good operating system, although I feel more needs to be done to de-alienate it for the average user. I’m going to list 5 things i feel OS X does better than Linux, or should I say Ubuntu Linux to be more specific?
lockergnome.com: Every once in a blue moon, the opportunity to re-evaluate exactly which OS is best for a given user comes along. And this can come into play on a number of factors:
sharms.org: A common trend among many of the best developers is to see them posting screenshots running OS X. Many of the best developers, some my personal ‘developer heroes’, have made the switch to OS X.
muktware.com: Heavy usage of adjectives seems to be the keyword of Apple's guideline for press releases. The company has over-used words like magical, revolutionary, reinvents and advanced so many times that they have lost their meaning.
gnuski.blogspot: At today's Apple conference, one of the big roll-outs is Apple's new Mac Store. Basically, its a way to use aptitude on OSX, for paid apps.
pcworld.com: I think the success of the Mac is mostly a matter of marketing. Whatever your own personal beliefs, though, there's no denying that there are certain things Linux clearly does better than Mac OS X. If you're trying to decide on a platform for your business, these factors are worth keeping in mind.
asinen.org: Mike has ditched Linux for Mac OS X. His blog post and most of the comments are quite measured, which is nice. A lot of Mike’s criticisms are probably quite valid too. However, he is comparing quite different things.
zdnet.com: It’s an in-depth analysis from Florian Mueller, whose FOSSPatents remains fiercely opposed to all software patents. It’s something of a follow-up to a May piece in which he considered the idea of a Fair Troll.
computerworlduk.com: The museum now has the source code of two software components from the original Macintosh available for your download and study with Apple's blessing.
