[News] Growing Realisation That GNU/Linux is There and It's Better

Tech Break: It's Linux Time 

,----[ Quote ]
| The bottom line: Windows and OS X aren’t the only operating systems out 
| there. Take the summer to check out a version of Linux or two; pop in a CD or 
| set up a virtualized install of your favorite distribution (Ubuntu is a good 
| place to start) and play with it. You’ll be surprised how great a system you 
| can get for free. As an added bonus, it’s one very legitimate reason to use 
| that shiny new BitTorrent program you...uh...just downloaded. You watch all 
| your movies from iTunes and Hulu, right?      


Eight Reasons Your Next Computer Should Run Linux

,----[ Quote ]
|    1. Freedom of Choice
|       Linux distributions are available for several computer platforms, 
|       including most Macs and PC’s. Find the computer you like best and 
|       install Linux. It’s getting easier every day to find equipment from the 
|       OEM’s that is compatible with Linux. Don’t feel like doing the research 
|       or installing Linux yourself? You can find computers with Linux 
|       pre-installed from vendors such as System 76, Dell, and Hewlett 
|       Packard.      
|    2. Stability
|       There’s a reason the some of the Internet’s biggest players, (like 
|       Google) base their infrastructure on Linux. Linux is known for rock 
|       solid stability. You won’t ever see the Blue Screen Of Death unless you 
|       install the BSOD Screensaver.   



Linux s'il vous plaît: French Gendarmie say oui to Ubuntu

,----[ Quote ]
| The Gendarmie Nationale – France’s national police force – has been slowly
| introducing open source software to its 105,000+ policemen since 2005. In
| 2008 the decision was made to use only Ubuntu for all new workstations. A
| year on shows this has been a great success with happy users, a better
| network and cost savings of over seven million euro per year.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
