Fight for Freedom - Long Live Linux!

Posted 09-03-2011 at 06:22 AM by ThisOldMan

Alright, that might seem to be a tad melodramatic. However it expresses my sentiments quite succinctly. Man was not born to be slaves to other men. Not that other men would not try and keep on trying to enslave other men.

Cyberspace is a realm without borders. Therefor, the way I see it, there is no reason to pollute the virtual landscape with proprietary software. After all, what is the point of living somewhere where the horizon is further than you can see, when you are still tethered...

LXDE: four distributions compared

Posted 08-31-2011 at 10:30 AM by caieng

What is the purpose of LXDE?

One would think, then, that LXDE ought to perform reasonably well, on a standardized test, performing an activity for which older, less powerful hardware is well suited.

Such an activity is internet radio receiver. This task is well...
