blogs.computerworld.com: There's no such thing as perfect security. There are no programs that give you absolute software security. After all, security is a process, not a product. Linux's security process, though, is outstanding, which is one reason why it has great security. Here's an example.

Rhythmbox is the default audio player coming with the GNOME desktop environment, featuring a clean, typical interface which is so common for GTK audio players. I could say that Rhythmbox has little missing features and it is rather complete.
zdnet.co.uk/blog: By sheer chance and very good fortune, I now own an ASUS N10J netbook. Or notebook. The N10J came preloaded with Windows Vistaster Business, it should be no surprise to anyone that it runs like a terminally ill DOG. I have installed a variety of Linux distributions on it.
