Hello,

Fairly recently I've really been learning about the Linux community and the "human part" if you will of the GNU\Linux world, from the businesses like Canonical, SUSE, and Red Hat to the Debian social contract and LSF. Also, I've read up on the future of Desktops and Handhelds and examined Linux Desktop distros from the deep past (remember DemoLinux?)

Smartphone that I may buy...

Posted 10-21-2011 at 09:36 AM by nenpa8lo

  • merriam webster dictionary
  • dasoertliche.de german inverse phone number search
  • ssl
