Hardware

blogs.techrepublic: Recently I came upon a company called System 76 promising to bring pre-installed Linux hardware to the masses.

Conversation With Jonathan Thomas of OpenShot

I think my initial fascination with Linux was based on rebuilding all my old, broken computers laying around my office/garage.

She answers questions thoughtfully, with carefully chosen words; even though I’m sure I’m not the first journalist to ask her some of the below questions (maybe not even the first one this week), she had no canned responses, and she never veered off course to discuss her own agenda. There were no preset talking points; simply, I asked questions, and she answered them. Read more
