Operating Systems and Market Share Statistics

http://jeffhoogland.blogspot.com

Did you know that 55% of statistics are made up on the spot? (or maybe it was 68% I don't recall) If you have ever taken a statistics class you know that data is everything, but it's not just about the data itself.

OpenSource Operating Systems

http://elevenislouder.blogspot.com

Well, I figured that I should take an opportunity to introduce a few opensource OSs that really haven't been in the lime light much. We all know about Linux and many of us also know about Darwin and BSD. Still some know about OpenSolaris. Which ever ones you know or don't here's a chance to get the scoop.

The Great Fallacy of BSD Unix vs. Linux

http://sob.apotheon.org

Linux is just a kernel." It's a commonly heard refrain amongst the arguments put forward by BSD Unix aficionados, and it is a true statement, but it is all too often abused to try to make a fallacious point.

My operating system is better than yours.

http://it.toolbox.com

It's all over the intanut tubes. The endless fights between windows and Linux advocates never seem to end. Both factions accuse each other of being FUDmunsters and zealots and both factions defend their own actions aggressively.

Again, Linux is not an OS

http://www.nuxified.org

Linux is not an OS. Besides the typical point that Linux is just the kernel my basic point was that what we typically call "Linux" is not really a single coherent operating system, but rather a framework for developing them or an ecosystem which spawns them.

A CLEAR new OS concept.

http://it.toolbox.com

The product? The new release of the beta version of their latest ClearOS(5.1). I was expecting just another fork of another Linux distribution. You know the standard Ubuntu, Debian, SUSE, RedHat type of thing. One thing was evident was that these people were definitely thinking out of the box.

OpenSolaris vs Linux

http://www.tuxradar.com

So you've been playing around with alternative OSes for a while and you reckon you've got this Linux thing mastered. Maybe you're tried Mac OS X and found it a bit too restrictive (or expensive); perhaps you've kicked the Hurd's tyres and thought you'll come back to it when it's something more than just a clever name.

Google's Chrome OS Threatens Linux, Is Good For Microsoft

http://ostatic.com

One thing that both Google and Apple share is that almost the instant that they announce a new product, the public loves it. That's partly because they tend to deliver winning products, but they don't always do so. Google has shuttered a number of projects from its labs, and its productivity applications are popular, but haven't come close to toppling Microsoft Office.
