ariewijaya.blogspot: About four years ago, I tried to free myself from the oppression and misery of running Windows XP by installing Linux on my PC. Ever installed the Linux operating system? It’s not for the faint of heart.

itwire.com: I'm not one of those highly vocal GNU/Linux users referred to by my editor Stan Beer a few days back. But then I am definitely one of the "tinority" because I do use the operating system on my desktop - and anywhere else that I need computing power. So you can call this a tinority view.

weblog.obso1337: The open source operating system experience exists in pieces, scattered across a world of projects and technologies. Distributions exist because they attempt to create a unified experience from the bits and pieces of open source functionality out in that world, while establishing themselves as a vendor their users can trust.
