Internet & Networking The Goodbye, Microsoft website has been a good source of Linux information for five years, focusing on issues like compatibility, mature computers, performance, applications, light distros, and reviews. The site just posted its Big Board of Linux Distributions, a list that gives you quick info on Linux distros sorted by hardware requirements. Here's to hoping this useful non-commercial website is with us for the next five years.

I've said it before and I'll say it again, the problem with Linux in a nutshell is the "Busted Toilet dilemma" which is thus: For every job that is fun, or exciting, or interesting, you have 100 jobs that are about as pleasant as cleaning up the puke at the Chuck E Cheese. Apple and MSFT pay hundreds of millions to get those jobs done but in Linux? they simply don't get done.

Red Hat, Novell, Suse, IBM, Oracle, Ubuntu etc.
You have said it before and you were probably corrected then too.
Sadly unless and until the license is changed so companies like Canonical can get paid for fixing all the messes Linux will ALWAYS be an also ran because in this age of Win 7 and OSX Lion "80% complete" just isn't gonna cut it for the masses.

Firefox, Android, Websites
GPL doesn't prevent you from finding a successful business model. Software as a product is shrinking. Software as a service is booming.
