linux-noob.com: My eldest son is ten years old. He has been using computers in one way or another since he was 4, and he has already seen Linux because I had installed Ubuntu and SLED 10 on his XP computer some years ago. The month has passed and I wanted to see what Christopher thought about using Linux daily.
daniweb.com/blogs: Any list of best or worst will have its opponents and proponents and I foresee that this list of worst Linux distributions will be no different. There were, at last count, almost 300 Linux distributions and they all can't be great.
mybroadband.co.za: In February this year a group of South African developers announced a new Linux distro project Kongoni. First stable version of a new Linux distro, Kongoni version 1.12.2, launched on July 12th 2009.
