laserjock.wordpress: Martin Owens recently asked the question “Why do you like Microsoft?” It’s a pretty brave thing to ask an free/libre/open source Linux community like Ubuntu. While some have taken up the challenge, it made me pause and think for a minute.
linuxforu.com: The war has begun. Quite literally. We laid our hands on the RC (release candidate) available for free on Microsoft’s website, and took it for a spin against Mandriva 2009.1 Spring. Who won? The results are most surprising!
techcrunch.com: Okay, it’s not exactly the Camp David Summit that took place in 2000 between the Israelis and the Palestinians, but sometimes the littlest gestures can go a long way.
betanews.com: Our subject today is full-disk encryption, that useful security tool that keeps data on your hard drive safe even if the drive itself is in peril. We'll compare the Windows approach to the problem with that of a leading Linux contender.
doctormo.wordpress: I have no interest in dealing with Microsoft, no partnerships, no trust, no respect, their name is dirt to me and socially they are a pariah. Not because of some fundamentalism or because I have an unwarranted grudge; But because they do harm to my communities.
zdnet.com: Their underlying architectures are quite a bit different, Gnome looks different than the 7 UI, etc., but to an average 17-year-old, there just wasn’t any meaningful difference between the two operating systems.
toolbox.com/blogs: Those of us who remember the word Netscape will also remember the browser wars. Then microsoft spliced internet explorer into its operating system and set itself up for one of the most publicised antitrust cases of this century.
maximumpc.com: That shiny new netbook is light and portable, plays music and movies, and cost less than an iPhone (with service). Problem is: you might be ready to chuck it off a bridge. The answer to the netbook dilemma is: find an alternative operating system.
blogs.computerworld: Anyone who was ever fool enough to believe that Microsoft software was good enough to be used for a mission-critical operation had their face slapped this September when the LSE (London Stock Exchange)'s Windows-based TradElect system brought the market to a standstill for almost an entire day.
profarius.com: I run Ubuntu. I recently upgraded to 9.10 and then decided to drop back to stable. This involves reinstalling. My sister complained about her system being incredibly slow. I decided to reinstall both at the same time to compare the time it takes to do them at the same time.
