Filed under
Moz/FF

mercurynews.com: After the official demise of the Netscape browser back in 2003, it seemed as if Microsoft's Internet Explorer would dominate the browser market, well, forever. It was hard to imagine how or why anyone would invest time and resources to create a new rival. But they did.

Filed under
Linux

hydrapinion.com: A week or so ago, one of the online shopping sites I frequent was selling Eee PCs on the cheap. Out of the box, it's easy to use and has almost all the apps one needs to be productive. My plan is to use the Eee PC in meetings, interviews, for the odd Skype call (Skype is included without any need to install extra software) and in my studies. This is where it starts to get annoying.

Also: Asus EEE-PC 900 completely misses the point
