deviceguru.com: Lenny (aka “testing”) appears poised to displace Etch as the popular Linux distribution’s “stable” branch next month. To see how Lenny was coming along, I loaded the latest preview (beta 2) of its KDE system image onto an available Thinkpad, and took it for a spin.

Paul Murphy: As we saw yesterday the much vaunted Unix skills premium over Windows is pretty small - 15% or so in an overheated market and less than that elsewhere. Notice, however, that this information pertains only to larger organizations.
