Mandriva Linux 2009 Release Candidate 2 (Gnome)

Filed under
MDV I've previously reviewed Mandriva 2009 Beta 1 using KDE 4 as the window manager. I didn't like what I saw. This time, it's the Gnome window manager and this is the last development release before the final version hit the download mirrors on the 9th of October 2008. Hopefully they've got everything right.

Even When Linux Fans Win, They Lose

Filed under
Linux Linux fans have been arguing - very loudly - for years that we should all be using Linux. There are quite a few *nix fans that say if you use Ubuntu, it’s a “for noobs only” OS. It is this attitude that pisses me off about the Linux community as a whole.
