[News] Advanced GNU/Linux Distribution Targets Developers

Hash: SHA1

Workbench Linux distro is a workhorse for software developers

,----[ Quote ] 
| Workbench is based on Xubuntu, the Xfce-powered Ubuntu flavor, but unlike 
| Xubuntu it doesn't fit on a standard 700MB CD. With all its development tools 
| and productivity apps, Workbench weighs in at 1.4GB. You can download the 
| distro from either a low-speed direct download server or BitTorrent.   
| [...]
| For eye candy, Workbench includes the fancy Cairo-dock launchbar, and desktop 
| widgets via the screenlets project. 
| Workbench is a good distro, especially if you are into software development. 
| It isn't an everyday distro for a desktop user, but rather a desktop distro 
| for everyday developers.  



Guess What? Fox News is Responsive to the Linux Community.

,----[ Quote ]
| Mr. Denis also stated that most of the Fox News developers use Ubuntu.


Vista's big problem: 92 percent of developers ignoring it

,----[ Quote ]
| Such appreciation for history is not likely to warm the cockles of
| Microsoft's heart, especially when Linux is getting lots of love from
| developers (13 percent writing apps for it this year and 15.5 percent in
| 2009).


Coders Tell Why They're Avoiding Vista

,----[ Quote ]
| Microsoft Corp. undoubtedly wanted to avoid its current predicament. It has
| been publicly talking up features in Vista since 2003 -- half a decade.
| But such "overmarketing," as Krasowski calls it, can rebound. Experienced
| developers have become jaded towards the third-party apps Microsoft trots out
| as exemplars of Redmond's latest technology -- "demoware," he calls them --
| that sparkle with flashy animation and video.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
