[News] Newbie Raves About the Latest Debian GNU/Linux

Hash: SHA1

New Debian GNU/Linux Update

,----[ Quote ]
| A new Debian GNU/Linux Update was released a few weeks ago - well, actually 
| one and a half new updates, to be precise. I just got around to giving it a 
| try, and I'm pleased and impressed.  
| The new release is 4.0r4a, and it incorporates security updates and bug 
| fixes. At the same time, they have released what they call 
| an "etch-and-a-half" release, which adds support for new hardware to their 
| current stable release, largely by updating to a newer Linux kernel (2.6.24 
| instead of 2.6.18). Given that Debian tends to be VERY conservative about 
| updates to stable versions, this is a big step forward.

Feeling the heat at Microsoft

| If I ask you who is Microsoft's biggest competitor now, who would it be?
