The future of Linux netbopoks and the price of Windows

Posted 07-03-2009 at 05:18 AM by erlik

Last week I made a summary of the current state of the Linux netbook market. Today I will show you that Linux netbooks are at a crossroad. They can reach a bright future and a significant market presence through 3 different paths: the smartbook path, the cheap path and the power path. On Tech-no-media I explain how each path will lead the Linux netbook to market dominance in a specific niche.

Also this week I wrote an article pointing out that Windows 7 boxed copies have become quite expensive...

I don't know what to make of it...

Posted 07-03-2009 at 03:49 AM by Shingoshi

But I've been a bit surprised by what seems to be the number of people who have clicked on my first (original) two posts. Mind you, I don't know how many are actually reading them. But even though I wrote them first, the amount of clicks that separates them from the rest seems significant. I am kind of disappointed though, that no one (except psychicist) has answer my threads. I was expecting to get a lot of criticism. But instead, I've gotten nothing. I guess that's ok. I just wouldn't mind having...

Reinstalling Linux due to a slip up Part 2.

Posted 07-02-2009 at 03:53 PM by Seph64 (Seph64's Lair)

It's been months since my last posting. But I finally got around to reinstalling Linux.

I went ahead and reformatted the windows partition to lower it's max capacity by 18GB (for Linux).

The home dir is binded to the Windows partition, specifically, the Users folder. So the Linux user home directory is shared with the Windows User directory. So there's no need to back up both places, since they are shared. This is accomplished by NTFS-3G.

18GB should...

Non-authoritative scan results of BitDefender, ClamAV and F-prot

Tags antivirus

Like before here's some results of running BitDefender, ClamAV and F-prot on over 11K of files containing Rootkits, LKM's and other goodies. Because of what I do most of the files are GNU/Linux related. (I run AV like a pentester would run metasploit against a networked entity.) I'm well aware of the AV-on-GNU/Linux-yes-or-no debate and this is not the place to go into that: search LQ or open up a thread if you need to discuss validity.

The commercial AV market is kind of an odd...
