HeliOS Project Brings Linux Technology to the East Side

,----[ Quote ]
| The 4 distros for this particular install were Ubuntu Ulitimate, OpenSuse, 
| Mint and AntiX. The main room center will more than likely be uniform 
| installs of Ultimate Ubuntu. That will make teaching classes a bit easier and  
| lessen confusion.

Linux installation fistival in JUST..

,----[ Quote ]
| Yesterday was a great day. We, the open source group at Jordan University of
| Science and Technology were holding a Linux installation festival to teach
| people about FOSS and to show them the path to their freedom. There were four
| distros: Ubuntu 8.10, openSUSE 11.1, Mandriva, Fedora 10 and PC BSD.


5 Best Linux Distros to Convert Windows Users

,----[ Quote ]
| Despite Ubuntu continuing to tear up the headlines as the most likely Linux
| distribution to bring in Windows users from the proprietary OS nightmare, it
| should be noted that there is a Linux-newbie- friendly world outside of the
| one created by the Ubuntu distribution.
| In this article, I'll highlight the best of the best. Some of these
| distributions may be based on Ubuntu code, while others could not be farther
| from it. No matter what though, in the end, each of them can survive without
| any help from the Ubuntu community.
| Mandriva
| Like most RPM-based distributions, I have had a love/hate relationship since
| the distribution's days as Mandrake. But packaging choices aside, make no
| mistake, Mandriva is a distribution to be reckoned with.
| For people unfamiliar with it, Mandriva is sort of like a Euro alternative to
| the now Americanized SuSE Linux distribution. Both are available for sale in
| boxed form, but Mandriva does very well in the EU ever since Novell took on
| SuSE as their own product some years back.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
