Linux is a lost cause!

Posted 11-14-2009 at 06:40 AM by jaymarting (The messy world of technology)

This is the quote I was told earlier this week by a colleague. "Linux is a lost cause."

HAS LINUX LIVED UP TO ITS PROMISE?

I don't for a second agree that Linux is truly lost but I do certainly agree with my friend and colleague that the promise Linux fortune tellers made has not come to pass. As we close in on 2010, I harken back 10 years to promises of a nearly dead Microsoft and a world run almost entirely by Linux. Good, bad or otherwise that just has...

Windows 7 - the gap is closing

Posted 09-19-2009 at 05:52 AM by AGer (Void cries or bashing time)

When Windows 2000 was out I had poisoned some thread with the observation that the window of opportunity for Linux was closed since MS finally had an OS that worked. Looking at the "Linux desktop" years later, was I correct? Not totally wrong for sure. Now we have Windows 7 and my impression is that the gap between Linux and Windows is closing together with another window of opportunity.

Slackware 64 Rocks!

Posted 07-10-2009 at 09:25 PM by stureedy

When I saw the announcement on Slackware.com that Slackware64-current had gone public, I had to try it. (I've been running Slackware as my primary OS--both desktop and server--for years.)

I downloaded the kernels, isolinux, and the slackware64 (packages) directories and begin reading.
