A Linux Experience

http://www.5thwind.com

when I loaded the live CD six months ago, it was more a case of having a couple of hours to kill. Anyway, I was surprised to find that everything worked…just like that.

http://www.groklaw.net

Groklaw member Tyche got a Dell Inspiron 530N with Ubuntu Linux and when I saw him post that he'd ordered it, I asked if he'd please write up a quick review after it arrived. He has done so, and as you will see, he found getting online so easy he had nothing at all to do to make it happen. Just poof.

Fedora vs. Ubuntu and Target Audience

http://poelcat.wordpress.com

It is not unusual to see people comparing Fedora to Ubuntu or pointing out how Ubuntu is gaining “mind share”, more hits on google, etc. I question the validity of these comparison. Sure, any two or more things can be compared and one can garner more attention than another, but that doesn’t mean one is better unless you have common criteria.
