A year with Ubuntu Linux

,----[ Quote ]
| Finally, I want to give a big thank you to everyone who has contributed to 
| all the OpenSource software that has allowed me to break free of the 
| Microsoft treadmill. Ubuntu is defiantly “Ready for the Desktop” and the more 
| people who make the switch the more support we will get from the Software 
| industry.    


QOTD: Have You Replaced Windows with Linux?

,----[ Quote ]
| There are many users out there however, who feel that they belong on a Linux 
| installation. Whether it's for the sheer aspect of "power-using" a PC with a 
| Linux-OS' comparability or just to try something new, Linux operating systems 
| are definitely gaining ground. Many MIDs and netbooks are shipping with Linux 
| operating systems.    
| The question of the day is: Have you replaced Windows with a Linux distro?


The Microsoft-sponsored Web statistics show Linux rising by like 30% this month

Some Mac users ditch OS X for GNU/Linux as well.


The end of my love affair with Apple?

,----[ Quote ]
| I, for one, have become reacquainted with Linux and its incredible
| flexibility on a wide variety of hardware. Linux allows me to have a “real
| computer” inside some very inexpensive hardware, whether netbooks or
| extremely cheap desktops. Even if Apple starts dumping their remaining white
| MacBooks on educational institutions, we’re still going to be looking at $800
| a pop. Their more interesting products climb quickly.
| [...]
| Apple is losing its luster for me. I’ll always feel warm and fuzzy inside
| walking into an Apple Store, but the other night we were talking about how to
| meet the computing needs of our family of six. Three out of four kids are
| using computers all the time for school now (and are far more likely to pop
| onto a computer than watch TV, a trend that I welcome happily). My youngest
| rarely “needs” a computer for school, but can easily make use of one (and is
| frequently bumped from a computer by his older brothers who actually need
| them to type papers, create presentations, conduct research, etc.).


Apple fanboy defects to Linux

,----[ Quote ]
| SELF-CONFESSED Apple fanboy Christopher Dawson has decided that it is too
| expensive keeping his addiction to the hi-tech toys going and has defected to
| Linux.


Ask Apple to Support Ogg on iPod/iTunes

,----[ Quote ]
| Please ask Apple to support Ogg on their iPods, iPhones, and iTunes! It
| wouldn't hurt to also sign this petition (and maybe this one), though I don't
| know how strongly they'd influence Apple. Here's why, as good news and bad
| news.


Jobs Health Rumor Hits Apple Stock

,----[ Quote ]
| Apple's stock fell abruptly on Tuesday, but later recovered
| some ground, after an online report said CEO Steve Jobs
| bowed out of next week's Macworld Expo keynote address
| because of declining health.
| In a report it labeled "rumor," the gadget blog Gizmodo
| quoted an unnamed source as saying Apple "is choosing to
| remove the hype factor strategically" by holding the
| keynote without Jobs, whose "health is rapidly declining."
| Gizmodo said the source had been correct in the past,
| though only about Apple products and not about Jobs. Apple
| did not comment for the Gizmodo post and did not
| immediately respond to IDG News Service requests for
| comment.
