Filed under
Linux
Microsoft

OSWeekly: I hear this too often - Windows is easier to use than Linux.

Filed under
Linux

Serdar Yegulalp: Back when Everex's Linux-based "Green PC" hit stores courtesy of Wal-Mart, I wasn't all that excited about it -- I saw it as being an also-ran to a much more exciting product, the Asus Eee subnotebook (also Linux-based). That said, the gPC is apparently selling like mad -- and now I think I see why: it's the Linux version of the Mac Mini, sort of.
