The ASUS Eee Linux PC from the outside in

Filed under

iTWire: I have one. I’m just one in ... well, quite a few thousand, really – but nevertheless, their supply has been surpassed by the demand. Yes, I’m talking about the ASUS Eee PC, the diminutive priced highly popular subnotebook which has brought Linux to the masses. Here are my complete first impressions and experiences, from the box through power on.

Emacs: undying hatred

Filed under
Software I spent a good six hours today using Emacs. It's by far one of the most infuriating pieces of software I've ever used.

Paludis, Gentoo and Ciaran McCreesh uncensored

Filed under
Interviews A lot of seasoned GNU/Linux users prefer using Gentoo in production, mainly because of Portage. Despite that, Portage does have a series of issues that hinder its further development; one solution that can substitute Portage and offer a viable and far more robust alternative is Paludis.

Trolltech and KDE collaborate on Phonon

Puppy Linux 3.0.1: King of the Seamonkeys

Filed under

techiemoe: Puppy Linux is one of several lightweight distributions I've used in the past, and I remember being quite impressed. It is with much disappointment that I find this latest release of Puppy no more useful than Damn Small Linux when it comes to practical, offline concerns. Allow me to expand on that.

Comprehensive Linux System Services List: Explanation and Recommendation

Filed under

7 Yr Anniversary with Linux

Filed under
Linux . In the early days Linux may have been a drag on my businesses, diverting time away from making money - today I consider using Linux and Open Source as a competitive advantage. We now do things faster, better, cheaper.

Back in the fold

Filed under
SUSE So a couple months ago I mentioned that I was running Fedora again as my primary desktop due to some problems I was having with OpenSUSE 10.3 But that I would try it again after a couple months hoping that patches will have addressed my problems. Well here we are a couple months later and I’ve installed OpenSUSE 10.3 on my primary AMD64 machine. This time through things worked the way I had expected them two a few months ago.

Ukufisa? or is it True Love?

Filed under
Ubuntu I am in love. Not the typical, usual, I "met her at the club and she swept me off my feet" love. No this was far from that. I have seen this apple of my eye around for a long while. I thought nothing of her at first. However, for many a years I kept hearing about her.

Good ole Gentoo. Where art thou?

Filed under
Gentoo I remember when I first started using Gentoo (back in the Gentoo 1.4 days), the community activity was just amazing. Each and every day or week, there was always something new and exciting going on in the Gentoo community.

Debian GNU/Linux on a Sony VAIO SZ680

Filed under

jonbernard.blogspot: I just acquired a Sony VAIO SZ680 and I felt like sharing my experience getting Debian installed on this thing. I wouldn't call it a "walk in the park" by any means, so hopefully someone else will find this useful.

What Windows Does Well

Filed under
Linux The Linux community does not understand that computer users, as a rule, really don’t care about the operating system. They just want it to do its job and stay out of the way. Any real involvement with it makes them nervous. That description fits perhaps 97 or 98 percent of users.

Linux isn’t worth the trouble any more

Filed under
Linux This post is about Linux, and the problems I’ve been dogged with since making the decision to upgrade to the latest versions of Ubuntu (7.10) and openSUSE (10.3). You can find all sorts of glowing reviews of both distributions without too much trouble, but the problem with these reviews is that nobody seems to be really doing anything non-trivial with them before they write their reviews.

GPL vs BSD, a matter of sustainability

Filed under
OSS Both licensing models have been around for a very long time. I don’t know which predates which, but it really doesn’t matter. The spirit behind both licenses is very similar: free software is good. But they realize this idea in different ways. Weekly Wire #2 (video)
