Linux It is not too surprising that Ubuntu came in first in's 2007 Desktop Linux Market Survey, or that Firefox was the topmost browser by far. More interesting is that for the first time ever in the site's annual surveys, GNOME surpassed KDE among desktop environments (45% over 35%), with Xfce a solid third (8%).

RE: On virtualisation

May I ask what you need?

I tried to install/start various operating systems with VBox (I tried Win98, Debian, ReactOS, Ubuntu) and I couldn't get anything running. There always were strange problems and I can't say what exactly. Most of the times the program just stops and nothing happens anymore.

Maybe it's a case of PEBKAC with me, but if I can't get anything running with the GUI then there seem to be some serious problems. VMware works flawlessly.

And no, I didn't forget to enable important (emulated) hardware.

Edit: I should add that these tests were a few months ago. Maybe it got better?!
