phoronix: There's a problem with Solaris and Sun knows it. The installation experience of Solaris (along with other areas) could be greatly improved. The installer doesn't "suck" as it's easy and known to Solaris administrators, but for a Linux or Windows user it could prove to be a bit challenging.
Wired.com: Hans Reiser is waiting for me, standing on the other side of an imitation-wood table. The room is small, the concrete walls bare. A guard locks the steel door from the outside. There is no sound. Reiser is wearing the red jumpsuit of a prisoner in solitary confinement.
nerdica: For those of us who enjoy using the Gnome desktop environment, we know we want our GUI applications to be easy to use and seamless. But, there’s always that one program that uses the KDE QT library to provide a front-end.
