Linux There's always a lot of excitement when a major Linux distribution has a new release - there's the clamour for the release notes and changelog, as well as the insatiable urge for screenshots and the search for the torrent for the ISOs. The release of Xandros Desktop 3.0 last week was no exception, with OS fanatics everywhere curious just what was in store. Read on for details.

Civil Discourse
by Chris Dunphy on Mon 13th Dec 2004 08:25 UTC

The level of civil discourse on this website is taking a sharp nosedive. Eugenia... it's getting pretty bad these days, which is a shame because you have put together a great site with many interesting articles and reviews.

I don't think the reviews are as bad as Kevin indicates, and even if they are not of professional quality, it doesn't matter, they can still be (or should be) discussed and debated in a friendly manner. You don't have to be an English major to be a nerd and review on OS on a site like this. I for one like the fact that pretty much anyone can post a review, it is one of the reasons I come here, its refreshing to get so many different perspectives.

The posts on this site are almost becoming unbearable however. They are slowly but surely ruining the reputation of this website and making it far less rewarding to participate. That is a shame. I wonder if a more aggressive form of moderation is needed? Weed out those who just want to cause trouble, or those who simply are unwilling to be civil or reasonable.
