Zenwalking Away From Ubuntu

Filed under
Linux

routecafe.com/david: Ubuntu is one of the most popular distros right now. Yet, it has lost its touch in matter of speed and performance for me and my machine. Now, why would I chose Zenwalk over Ubuntu? Lightweight, XFCE adaptation and friendly community.

Free software alternatives: What good is choice if you don't use it?

Filed under
OSS

freesoftwaremagazine.com: Look through a list available packages for any free OS and you’ll find a sometimes bewildering choice of browsers, mail readers, editors, desktops and tetris-clones available. Despite this many will just blindly install the first one they’ve heard of. Is this a good policy? What good is all this choice if we don’t use it and what are those choices?

Ubuntu and the coming Linux popularity contest

Filed under
Linux

cnet.com: It's just a matter of time before Ubuntu is crowned "enterprise ready" by one of the major ISVs. Will it be able to maintain its popularity once it is popular with enterprise buyers?

OSS

tuxtoday.wordpress: To be honest, there isn’t a discussion to be had over which os is better between the major Linux distros or Vista. It’s so obvious that you have a lot more functionality in, say Ubuntu or Suse. Linux is good enough, and that’s the key.

Can Linux Be This Good?

Filed under
Linux

linuxcanuck.wordpress: I had an epiphany the other day. It happened this way. I was using Ubuntu, my Linux operating system of choice, when I found myself looking at my screen, mindlessly twirling the Compiz Fusion cube and painting fire on the screen. I was restless. And then it struck me.

Filed under
Linux

blogs.techrepublic.com: I can’t begin to tell you how many people over the years I have consulted with about choosing a Linux distribution. And even with my own personal loyalties to one distribution or another, it always amazes me how certain distributions are better suited to various users and needs. So when I set out to write a 10 Things article, it only made sense that my first one be related to choosing a Linux distribution.

Mark Shuttleworth: Playing nicely with Windows

Filed under
Linux

markshuttleworth.com: Windows is a very important platform, and our justifiable pride in Linux and the GNU stack shouldn’t blind us to the importance of delivering software that is widely useful. I believe in bringing free software to people in a way that is exciting and empowering to them, and one of the key ways to do that is to show them amazing free software running on their familiar platform, whether that’s Windows or the MacOS.

Review: PC-BSD 1.5

Filed under
BSD

raiden.net: PC-BSD, a strong contender for the top desktop distribution out there, has once again grown, going from version 1.3 to 1.5 in just under a year. In that time it's grown, prospered, and had it's fair share of growing pains as well. But version 1.5 is only one subversion up from the previous version 1.4 that we reviewed. So what makes version 1.5 better than its predecessors and worth a look from us? Well, let's have a look.
