I just recently got a new PCWorld magazine (my mother has a subscription) in the mail. In it was the annual Top 100 list. Here's what I found:

I looked all through the list, and finally found Ubuntu 10.10 at the end of it. That's pretty impressive, but why #100? I would expect more from PCW in all respects. However, the fact that Ubuntu made it at all says that Ubuntu (and Linux in general) is enough to make me excited.

EDIT 2012-02-03/2014-10-11:
In Debian I just discovered "duff". A tool to find duplicate files-.-

I installed PuppyLinux, but the net access was too long (ndiswrapper with the AVM Fritz WLAN usb adapter worked fine).
Now I installed Damnsmalllinux as frugal version on the HDD.
By loading the Win98 and WinXP drivers, error messages came up with ndiswrapper; the wlan is...
