Is Linux for you?

Linux

domhnallck.blogspot: Some time ago, I dumped Windows for Linux. It wasn't an easy task to do so. Now that I'm pretty well set, however, I see no reason to go with a dual boot, or ever go back to any incarnation of Windows again.

Dell-sapointment

Filed under
Linux

Aaron Seigo: Some of the blockers for mainstream Linux desktop usage are lack of legal codecs, hardware integration and certain types of basic functionality like software suspend not working reliably. This is not news, of course, but rather the typical gripes people have had for years. Even as much of the Free software has reached the point of being true-blue entries in the top echelons of functionality and quality, some of these issues continue to nag at us unanswered.

tuxdeluxe: In the computing world, ISO standards have a mixed record. But standards don't rule the computing world. Microsoft has historically had an ambivalent view of standards. This historical record makes the recent global activities over the "Office Open XML" (OOXML) document format so interesting.

Google scores a win over Microsoft’s OOXML

Filed under
OSS

zdnet blogs: Microsoft’s proposal for the fast track of the OOXML standard was recently shot down by the ISO.
