linux.com: Nowadays, everyone uses Ubuntu, most people have used Fedora, and many folks have tried openSUSE. SimplyMEPIS ... not so many.

ariewijaya.blogspot: About four years ago, I tried to free myself from the oppression and misery of running Windows XP by installing Linux on my PC. Ever installed the Linux operating system? It’s not for the faint of heart. So, when it was recently reported that Linux-based netbooks are being returned at a rate four-times higher than their Windows-based brethren, I can’t say I was surprised.
esr.ibiblio.org: I predicted years ago that what would eventually do Microsoft in was white-box PC makers defecting because they needed to claw back profit margin as the Windows license became the largest single item in their bills of material. And here’s the confirmation.
maketecheasier.com: The most commonly asked question by new Linux users is often “Which Linux distribution is the best for me?”. With hundreds, possibly thousands of different Linux distros out there, it is really a tough job deciding which is the one for you.
