Why I Will Recommend Linux To Family This Year

Filed under
Linux

velocitywebdev.com: I read a recent post called “Why I Won’t Be Recommending Linux to Family this Holiday Season.” Th author makes a few good points about the various applications that family members use, but forget to tell you about. Things like the Sims or other games that don’t run well under Wine. Things like music under iTunes. The funny part is, the real reason…he doesn’t want to take the heat for telling them to use Linux and have something go wrong! Wimp!

Filed under
OSS

Serdar Yegulalp: After my last post about how "failed" open-source projects aren't really failures at all, a colleague of mine provided me with more perspectives on that situation. The very way open source works, he claimed, is like an amortization of risk against failure in software development.

Some Grubby Linux Games

Filed under
Gaming

ubuntukids.org/blog: My kids (ages 7 and 11) do like to play games a bit and I encourage it on Ubuntu as a way for them to become familiar with the operating system and familiar with computing in general. So what is a father, teacher, Ubuntu user and not overly pro-game person to do? Enter Grubby Games.

Filed under
Linux

Adventures in Linux: Linux evolves so quickly that all sorts of nifty new feature/function that Linux Desktop users would probably love to have is also probably only in the newer releases.
