I just received my boxed set of Xandros Desktop Premium Home Edition. The box was heavy. I thought to myself, "the box is heavy!" That's because it contains not only the sealed packet of 3 cds, but also a quick start guide and a rather thick User Guide. I beta tested an early early version of Xandros years ago, so my memory of it has all but faded. I do recall that at that time, it wiped out my entire disk. I'm hoping it has a partitioner this time. A little older and wiser now, I thought I could avoid catastrophe even if it doesn't. So, how did it go?
When you're hardcore about tabbed browsing, Tabbrowser Extensions is the way to go. When I'm writing or researching, I often have 20 or 30 web pages open. My desktop would be in chaos and my productivity overing near zero without tabbed browsing.

Renewed interest in alterntives to Microsoft coupled with big headlines for Ubuntu means many new users are examining Ubuntu when they evaluate (or re-evaluate) the state of Linux. This being said, I have 5 Tips for New Ubuntu Users that you won't hear anywhere else.
In the introduction, Scott says: "While man pages are useful, they are often not enough, for one simple reason: They lack examples." So, how did Scott do? Very well, I think: I liked this - a lot.
In my previous article I examined the first of two options available to people who currently use Windows 98, Windows 98 SE, or Windows Millennium and face a potentially tough decision following Microsoft's decision to retire these operating systems. In this continuation I set the stage for purchasing your new machine and encourage your consideration of buying a Linux computer when buying a newer more powerful machine.
Free/Open Source Software has always been about innovation. We have come from resolving dependencies to unique point-and-click package management, from text-based installations to graphical ones that are easy to follow, from a lack of desktop-oriented applications to a surplus. But the desktop and window managers still feel like they did initially. Does the buck stop here? Not if SymphonyOS can help it.
Following a beta release on June 9, Nokia has released a highly anticipated Linux operating system update for the 770 Internet Tablet. The "Tablet OS 2006" update is now available for download by 770 owners on Nokia's website.
European Union regulators are "studying" a consumer complaint that Microsoft Corp. forces computer makers to sell machines that are preloaded with Windows, excluding other operating systems such as Linux.
Ubuntu's desktop install provides a bunch of useful software for desktop users, but it doesn't install a firewall by default. Luckily, it's really simple to get a firewall up and running on Ubuntu.
Intel's Core Duo T2400 has a maximum operating frequency of 1.83GHz, 65nm process, 2MB of L2 cache, and 667MHz FSB; however, how does this dual-core component fare under Linux? We have taken a look at the Intel Core Duo T2400 in conjunction with the Lenovo ThinkPad T60.
The KDE4 build system is now centered around CMake. If you are a developer, CMake will be much easier to learn, handle and maintain than what you are used to so far.
The Portland Project, the collaborative venture of Linux vendors and developers to simplify the process of porting and integrating applications for Linux desktops, has announced the beta release of its first application tools for the Linux desktop's GNOME and KDE environments.
Have you wondered what's really behind Microsoft's web-based Office 2007 demo beta? I did, and what I found was more than a little interesting.

Though Microsoft might disagree, open source software in many cases can be a real cost saver. It can also save your neck. Literally.
I lately updated my dapper box to edgy eft. Has edgy eft is unstable and had just been started up, it happens to get surprise. Today, update-manager stopped to work.
Well, I have used LOTS of window managers... KDE, Gnome, XFCE, FVWM, Windowmaker, etc... So recently I decided to try a new one, of a new kind to me: ratpoison.
