ostatic.com: Let's face it, open source software runs the Internet. Without it we wouldn't have basic services like DNS, or even the web server that's sending you this page. I've been thinking about what life would be like without open source software.
blogs.ittoolbox: In part 2 of the "Get rid of your Linux bloat" series I talked about removing excess packages from your chosen distribution and only having installed what you actually need. In this final part we are going to go into territory that, if it were a store bought item, would void your guarantee.
linux.com: After I reviewed Alien Arena last year, some readers criticized my choice of that first-person shooter (FPS) as the best free software game I had played. Several suggested Nexuiz would have been a better choice. At the time, I had not played it. Now that I have tried Nexuiz 2.4, it has become my favorite free software FPS.

techradar.com: I’ve been using the Windows OS ever since version 3.0. I also own a MacBook running OS X, so I know how intuitive Apple's OS is in comparison. I'm intrigued to see if 2008 is really the year when Linux is ready for prime-time.
itwire.com: Used in the right context, statistics can often illuminate and point the way. On the other hand, these days, given the degree of spin around, they are more often used to confuse and blur an issue.
laptopmag.com: This $549 mini-notebook addresses its predecessor’s drawbacks by including a larger, higher-resolution 8.9-inch screen and more storage space. We tested the Linux-based version, which comes with a 20GB solid state drive. Add in an improved 1.3-megapixel webcam and a multi-touch capable touchpad, and you have the makings of a successful, albeit more expensive sequel.

penguinpetes.com: In "Does Microsoft impose a prisoner mentality?", I speculated that years of using Windows seems to do something to people. Something kind of creepy. It seems as if it steals their intelligence, or their will to learn, or... In many cases, the person is scared. And fear is an emotion! Not something you can cure with a man page.

progbox.co.uk: When I first started using Cinelerra, I was put off by the look of the interface. It was dated and old. I also tried importing a few video clips and got very different results. One played just fine, the other played at about 2 frames per second. I was not impressed.

penguinpetes.com: Now, the three computing republics, Unix, Apple, and Windows, had different approaches to autonomy. In Unix, they teetered cheerfully on the edge of anarchy. There was only very little attempt to reign in the free spirits there. In Windows, no stepping out of line was tolerated, but it was necessary to maintain perfect order and the people there loved it.
