Windows 7 - could have been called Vista SE

Filed under
Microsoft

izanbardprince.wordpress: Occasionally I go nuts and decide to see if the people at Microsoft have aped anything good from OS X or Linux, or gotten it right if they did. With all the hubbub about Windows 7, I decided to give it a try, and I was less than amused.

Filed under
Ubuntu

technologytales.com: Part of some recent “fooling” brought on by the investigation of what turned out to be a duff DVD writer was a fresh installation of Ubuntu 8.10 on my main home PC.

Filed under
Gaming

tuxradar.com: We descended back down into the dark cellars below the Linux Format head offices to dig out more gems from the archive. This time we've surfaced with another group test: the best Linux games of the time, which is both fun (we all had fun playing these back in the day) and depressing (Linux games have sadly not moved on that much!) at the same time.

Jargon Jam - Linux

Filed under
Linux

danlynch.org/blog: Someone asked me “should I install Ubuntu or Linux?”, I replied “Ubuntu is Linux” but this didn’t help a lot. There’s a lot of terminology we take for granted. It can put people off and I want to demystify some of it if I can.

  • FOI: NHS Trusts are ransomware pin cushions [Ed: Windows]
