Review: jQuery Cookbook

http://www.linux-tutorial.info

I love jQuery. It's not like there aren't other JavaScript libraries out there, but jQuery was the first I became involved with and so far, it's solved every web design problem I've encountered. Of course, I usually go searching for a jQuery solution on the web when I have such a problem. That's why I was looking forward to O'Reilly's jQuery Cookbook.

Distro Review: Linux Mint 8

http://danlynch.org

Today I’d like to talk to you about Linux Mint 8, AKA Helena. I’ve said this many times before, but the codenames still sound a little tacky to me. The distro itself is anything but tacky though and it’s been one of my firm favourites in the past. How would this release stack up?

Poor review with heartwarming community response

http://proyvind.net

I read this poor review of Mandriva Linux 2010 (the only poor review I’ve seen so far actually), which I got a bit provoked about, not that much because I’m taking things personal, but it’s rather more about stupid people pisses me off!

Xubuntu 9.10 Review - Unremarkable

http://www.dedoimedo.com

Xubuntu is a member of the Ubuntu family, furnished with the lightweight Xfce desktop environment, on top of the standard Ubuntu stack. So, that means that it should be as easy and convenient to use as standard Ubuntu, right?

Review: Slackware 13.0

http://server.ericsbinaryworld.com

When Slackware 13 came a few months ago on the LXF magazine, I decided to throw it into Virtualbox to see how it has changed. One difference this time around is that I now have the dual core machine so I am running Slackware on that machine.

Distro Review: Fedora 12

http://danlynch.org

Today I’d like to talk about my experiences with Fedora 12 over the last couple of weeks. I’ve been running it as my main desktop and really getting a feel for how it ticks. Fedora is the community release from corporate Linux giants Red Hat. I’ve used it on and off since its inception back in the early 2000’s, it’s fair to say there have been big highs and lows in that time.

Review: Coders at Work

http://jfm3-repl.blogspot.com

"Peter Seibel has given me a sneak peek at his new book Coders at Work. Allow me to beat my colleague Xach to the punch by saying This book is dead sexy. When it comes out, you should definitely get a copy. Seibel is a good writer and a good programmer, and I'm a big fan of his last book Practical Common Lisp. You should get that book too.

Review: SimplyMepis 8.0

http://www.raiden.net

SimplyMepis, or Mepis for short, is a distribution targeted towards new users that has the intended goal of providing a good distribution that is easy to use. Version 7.0, which was my first experience with Mepis was pretty good. But past success means little if the newer version doesn't deliver. So let's see how SimplyMepis 8 does.

GoboLinux Review

http://linuxphilia.blogspot.com

GoboLinux is a Linux distribution I heard about from a friend who said that it looked interesting for its flagship property - a simpler file structure. I decided to check it out. I downloaded the distribution ISO from their website, which was easy enough, and booted up VirtualBox with that ISO mounted as a drive.
