Running as standard at 1.6GHz the Atom processor is designed to be as frugal as possible, while delivering the performance required to browse the Internet, watch videos, listen to music and plenty else besides.

KDE

blog.lydiapintscher.de: So there has been a lot of confusion about the KDE 4 desktop and FolderView lately and some nasty stuff I don’t want to go into right now. In the comments to Aaron’s blog someone said they don’t see how exactly it will be better and help them be more productive. So let me show you.

KDE

aseigo.blogspo: I keep getting interrupted, however, by the continuing fallout from what has become one of the biggest faith-in-the-community destroying events I've experience. Having read a couple more angry FUD filled blog postings on this matter, proving squarely just how confused people are at the moment, I figured a picture might help.

Debian — troubling signs; can Slackware teach us anything?

Filed under
Linux

blog.sillica.com: This article will try to provide a contrast between ‘the Debian way’ and ‘the Slackware way’ when it comes to distribution management. The idea is to really attempt to illuminate people on why Debian, and many other distributions may not be ideal, and why a classic approach such as Slackware still has merit in this world of modern feature-crazy distributions.

kmandla.wordpress: A long time ago I found some Openbox themes that were made by a person named Sebastian Sareyko. All of those sites are abandoned now and I don’t know if Sebastian has another home. I got lucky yesterday and found a few of the original .tar.gz files.

Maybe We Should Charge For Linux

Filed under
Linux

linuxtoday.com: It got me wondering about all the various reasons why Linux is promoted, and how being free is in beer (one would think) should be a huge draw. But, as history shows, while being free (gratis) is an advantage, it has not brought people over in waves. When people come to Linux, they cite other advantages first, and sometimes mention the gratis part only as an after-thought.

osweekly.com: As I sit here looking at my Zonbu(s) (a mini and the notebook), I cannot help but feel overwhelming dismay over all the progress made with "ready-to-go" Linux solutions. My concern is not in regard to the projects themselves, but it’s where Microsoft is trying to edge their way into something that Linux was working magic with first.

Linux Mint 5.0: Usage Points

Filed under
Linux

alternativenayk.wordpress: Unlike my previous review of Ubuntu 8.04, in which I both compared it to PCLinuxOS (which is not fair to both distros) and also criticised it’s GNOME-ic flavour, which I agree is a matter of taste. Instead, I’m focussing simply on my current use of Linux Mint 5.0 and rate my experience (positive/negative).

FAI and Ubuntu

Ubuntu

eyrie.org: My project for the past three days has been to upgrade our etch-based Debian build system to add support for Ubuntu hardy. We're primarily a Debian shop, but we want to use Ubuntu for the public timeshare systems due to its faster stable update cycle.
