Oracle and SUN Some of the more experienced among the readers can surely configure CUPS with Samba by editing configuration files with closed eyes. This kind of exercise is useful and fun the first few times, but it can quickly become a mundane task if it has to repeated often. Wouldn't it be nice if we had a distribution that could do it near-automatically? In other words, wouldn't it be nice if we just used Xandros? And despite our natural resistance to use GUI for any kind of configuration, could we still love Xandros? Robert Storey investigates.

"Dolt", "eh?", "Twit", "you are the problem" and "(ugh) even yours. Trust me when I say you'd sound better quiet..."

Now there are some strong argument! Are you from MIT? ;-)

Saying that Linux needs nothing but coders are not arrogant, presumptious or silly. There is a big difference between "Linux" and "Linux users". The Linux 'end user' needs other users. But the Linux coder needs other coders. The people who sell Linux to people who want to save a buck needs the people who wants to save the buck. But does the OS need them? Does the end user drive the system forward? Why is the usefull software free and the "helper" software so pricy?
