blog.vivian-lee.net: Yesterday I continued my search for a new Linux distributions by burning a ton of LiveCDs to try out many popular distros. After playing around with most of them for an hour or two (and installing some), here is the verdict:
indlovu.bundublog: Much has been said about the so-called “user-experience” in Ubuntu, which drastically needs to be improved if it is to compete with mainstream operating systems like OSX and Windows. It’s a nefarious term and depends upon how one defines “user” and what kind of “experience” the user requires.
racerraul.blogspot: Many people feel that making the switch to Linux is difficult. And in all honesty it does require a bit of effort and willingness to adapt to a new Operating System and its applications. But in reality, it is no more difficult than learning to use a computer for the 1st time.
computerworld.com: The open-source faithful are lambasting a proposed overhaul of OpenOffice.org's user interface, with critics saying it would "ape" Microsoft Office's controversial Ribbon layout.
mozillalinks.org: Namoroka roadmap has been updated and it shows the focus will be on making it feel snappier when performing some common tasks like opening a new tab, launching Firefox, scrolling a web page, getting autocomplete and location bar suggestions, etc.
Adam Williamson has made available a repository containing a full set of packages to install the driver for Intel Poulsbo (GMA500) graphics chipsets (found in the Dell Mini 12, Sony Vaio P and other systems) on Fedora 11.
internetling.com: I heard about Linux Mint numerous times and even tried out a few releases. The major “selling” point of Mint is its main focus: to provide a ready-to-go, user-friendly desktop.
infoworld.com: Jeff Haynie reached a crossroads last summer. Haynie, CEO of Appcelerator, a firm that develops open source cross-platform application development software, made a decision filled with implications for his company's future. That decision: to toss away his upcoming product's Gnu General Public License (GPL), the best-known and most popular free software license, in favor of what he viewed as a more business-friendly alternative.
phoronix.com: OCZ Technology has introduced the Agility SATA 2.0 Solid-State Drives. The Agility is designed to fill OCZ's mainstream SSD offerings with models up to 120GB in size, MLC flash memory, 64MB cache, and slightly better prices. In this review we are testing out the OCZ Agility 120GB Serial ATA 2.0 SSD under Ubuntu Linux.

After running into Problems with Mandriva 2009.1 with my sound cutting out and making static sounds and sometimes not working at all I decided to give PCLinuxOS a try.
knowliz.com: Almost all my friends use Windows or Mac. (not many of them are geek like me.) And when I talk to them about Ubuntu (sometimes) they ask various questions.
royal.pingdom.com: The truly great thing about laptops and netbooks is that you’re not bound to your desk. You can bring them with you anywhere. Some people are taking that to the extreme, bringing their laptops with them to places where most of us wouldn’t.
stormyscorner.com: People doing everything in their browser scares me not because I think everyone should use the desktop but rather because I don't think the browser is the best user tool for doing all those things.
kdenews.org: Since KDE 4.3 has been released, various reviews have appeared on the web. The DOT had a look at some of them.
raiden.net: Pardus Linux is a distribution that likes to put a lot of "roar" in the user experience. Hailing from Turkey, it's a distribution that looks to make your desktop user experience exciting. So what does Pardus offer you that others don't? Well, let's have a look.
jdeeth.blogspot: How many computers is too many? According to me, I have a 16 port hub and I still have slots left. The flexibility of Linux means you can install a full-featured desktop, or a minimalist system.
