Linux Well, it's been a while since we've opened this particular jar (box is not historically accurate) owned by Pandora. Desktop Linux... Yes, that ever elusive readiness of the desktop that is Linux-powered. Some story on ComputerWorld argues that the desktop Linux dream is dead, and apparently, the story is causing some stir on the web. Well, paint me pink and call me a lightbulb, but of course desktop Linux is dead. However - who gives a flying monkey? Linux is being used by more people than ever!

I recently bought a Toshiba T135-1309 with Windows 7. The first thing after opening the box was to format the entire drive over to ext4, save for a swap partition :-)

Ubuntu 10.10 is much better than XP ever was. And I use redbox too. Meaning, I am willing to stay behind curves to enjoy freedom of choice!

Ubuntu has been delivering new versions twice a year for years now. Their support and community is vibrant as ever. This artical was a total slam on desktop computing... Which will never die.

It's funny how hard they are pushing for cloud computing. Boy they really want everything there is to know about you.
