shinywankenobi.wordpress: I’ve tried just about every Linux distro you could mention over the years. In my partial boredom I decided to flip through Distrowatch’s pages and see what I could find to play with. I want something different. Zenwalk… Zenwalk, where the Hell have you been all my life?
reddevil62-techhead.blogspot: USING a mobile phone to access the worldwide web has rarely been a pleasant experience. But then along came Oslo-based Opera with their Mini 4.2 browser - and all that changed.
