techiemoe.com: This is one OS that pretty much came out of the blue. The last time I looked at Sun Microsystems' Solaris was waaay back when the only free option was Solaris "Express" beta builds.
8ez.com/drsmall/blog: As of Monday, May 4th, 2008, I completely wiped my perfectly healthy Ubuntu installation, where there was no problems, no errors, I had all the software I wanted, everything worked, the system looked beautiful, and overwrote it all with ArchLinux. That was a huge step of fear, uncertainty and doubt…
hehe2.net: In May’s issue of Linux Journal, their segment “LJ Index” featured some tidbits or trends about which countries are actually Googling “Linux.” It is always interesting where Linux is gaining public interest, which countries are falling behind.

jmcg.livejournal: I replaced the Mepis 6 partition with Mandriva One. The laptop is a dual boot with Win XP which I need to retain because of the accounting application I use for my small business. The problem was that the new naming scheme for hard drives has made a mess of what used to be a simple procedure.
ostoolbox.blogspot: openSUSE 11 is currently in beta still, and will be officially released in June. I downloaded and installed it using the KDE 4 LiveCD, but was rather disappointed with what I saw.

linux.com: Which path should you follow? Should you take advantage of Ubuntu's package manager and use it to upgrade your system to the latest 8.04 Hardy Heron release, or should you download a CD or DVD ISO image and do a clean install?
reuters.com: Ninety percent of the users don't need all the functionality that Office provides. More demanding users who don't want to pay may look to Symphony and its cousin, OpenOffice, a package developed by a nonprofit group that includes a database program and drawing software.
blogs.zdnet.com: Samba’s forthcoming version 3.2 release capitalizes on Microsoft’s interoperability commitments while also guarding against patent covenants that threaten the GPL.

junauza.com: Ultra-Mobile Personal Computers (UMPC) are so hot right now that major PC manufacturers are competing to create the lightest, fastest and sexiest-looking portable machines imaginable. Most of these emerging sub-notebooks are pre-installed with Linux, and I wasn't surprised.
