Zero Reply Threads: Addendum

Posted 12-31-2009 at 02:32 PM by ofaring (Debian, This That and the Other)

I'm writing this because when I read over my previous rant, it struck me as too harsh and reactionary. I won't take it down, because I believe it illustrates a valid point, but I need to add clarification.

This subject interests me because I've always believed that it's better to learn why the formula works than to just memorise the formula. Back a couple of years when I was in high school, I worked much harder at sciences than mathematics. Consequently, I got to the point...

I'm hoping to get more work done on Lusus during the last two weeks of

Java Applets: The Adventure Continues

Posted 12-30-2009 at 09:46 PM by CoderMan

Marketing to home users.

Posted 12-30-2009 at 10:39 AM by rich_c

I've been wondering of late what can be done about stepping up the marketing of Linux to home users. Probably the only company that would have any interest in doing this is Canonical. The other big Linux players aim themselves more at corporate use and those large organisations that do supply Linux PCs to home users no doubt have pressure put on them to keep it low key from Microsoft.
