Reading Lisa's and Don's stories remind me of my Linux roots. Many of their thoughts and experiences reflect my own and got me to reminiscing. My path was a bit more convulted and sometimes I chuckle, but I'm here now and I'm staying.
I was a techno-dinosaur, resisting the call of the computer with all my might. Finally on January 1, 2004 I took the plunge, bought a computer with Microsoft XP. Since then, Don has become interested in building computers and installing Linux distros on them.
I never liked Windows. Maybe that's why Linux captured my interest and imagination from the first time I heard about it but I was reluctant to just jump in and give it a try because it was difficult to imagine how anything free could truly be any good. Things started to change when somebody gave us a Ubuntu live CD.
beranger.org: Observed by Planète Béranger, as a protest against the low quality of the distributions built around the Linux kernel. All of the mainstream GNU/Linux distributions fail to provide with acceptable quality, usability, trustworthiness and proper support, being it paid or not. For the current week, Planète Béranger will ignore whatever is related to any known Linux distro.
itwire.com: In our modern, and busy, world the separation between home computers and home entertainment systems is fast fading. Linux makes it a cinch to build your own PVR, allowing you to watch, pause and record live TV broadcasts.
Glyn Moody: All around the world, it seems, people just can't get enough of this amazing free office suite, which is now turning in serious market shares in some countries.
headshotgamer.com: I'm a gamer and I'm a Linux user. Yes, this puts me in a very small group of people in the world. The mass majority of gamers are either consolers (Wii, PS2/3, Xbox 360) or Windows gamers. They do often ask “What games can you play on Linux? Isn't it just a command prompt?”. You can game on Linux and you have quite a few options.

sakana.fr/blog: I’ve recently switched to the Gentoo Linux distribution (mostly to experiment with this Linux distro) and I don’t regret it so far. This post is about my first impressions about Gentoo.

downloadsquad.com: There are plenty of things to love about a modern desktop Linux distribution like Ubuntu 8.04. But there's one thing I absolutely hate.
blogs.techrepublic.com: Recently I had to write an article on Linux green computing. During the writing of that article I was sent on yet another quest to get some form of hibernate and or suspend working on a Linux laptop. This quest had me digging through nearly every configuration file and every package I could. I was surprised at what I discovered and the results I came up with.
davestechsupport.com/blog: Ubuntu 8.10 (Intrepid Ibex) Beta was just released and it is a routine event that precedes the fast approaching final release of the next major upgrade to Ubuntu Linux. A lot of hype has been generated over the last 6 months about what new features and changes would be included with Ibex.
reddevil62-techhead.blogspot: AN interesting new Linux project released in the last week, Omega 10, cuts through the old debate about free/proprietary software with a solution I am sure many will find appealing - and just as many will abhor.
amumtaz.wordpress: A few months ago Mark Shuttleworth, founder of Ubuntu Linux, called upon open source developers to surpass Apple and their wonderful MacOS-X based user experience. Well, gOS release 3 could be close to doing just that.
linuxhaxor.net: Atmosphir is a third person, 3D, platform/adventure game that not only allows you to explore through diverse levels and challenges, but also gives you the tools to design your own levels and upload them for others to play.
linuxjournal.com: Free minix-like kernel sources for 386-AT, was the subject of Linus Benedict Torvalds post to comp.os.minix on October 5, 1991 -- seventeen years ago today. Linus didn't know what he was unleashing.
jaysonrowe.wordpress: I’ll be the first to admit it - when it comes to Linux, I am a habitual “Distro-hopper”. I don’t like being a distro-hopper, and I haven’t always been a distro-hopper.
