Looking for Linux, but sold out

Filed under
Linux
Hardware

blogs.the451group: I had an interesting time scouring the Internet for the right netbook for my wife. The biggest hangup was trying to find an Acer Aspire One netbook with Linux on it. It’s not that they aren’t made by the manufacturer, it’s that all the Linux netbooks seem to be getting gobbled up.

It’s All About Community

Filed under
Ubuntu

linuxcanuck.wordpress: When I think of Linux, I think of community. There is lots more to Linux, but it is community that springs to my mind. That is probably because it is like a Second Life for me. I spend much time out there, in the Linux community. But when I think of community, I think of only one thing, Ubuntu.

Filed under
KDE

meldroc.com: Sometime around the end of the month, the KDE developers will unleash the official 4.2 release upon the world, and it will be picked up by your distro creator of choice sometime soon afterwards.

Setting Up the Ideal Linux Desktop

Filed under
Linux

earthweb.com: After years of authorized and -- I admit -- the occasional unauthorized but non-tampering snooping, I'm overdue to offer reciprocity. I'm not naive enough to throw open my machine for everyone to examine online, but, over the years, I have developed several pages of hard-earned notes that I follow and revise whenever I buy and set up a new computer.
