[News] Tour of Puzzle Games for GNU/Linux

Hash: SHA1

Linux Puzzle Games

,----[ Quote ]
| There are Linux games for every taste: first person shooters, board and 
| arcade games, strategy games. But if you prefer to train your intellectual 
| skills instead of blasting monsters or conquering the world, there are a few 
| high-quality puzzle games, too. In this article we will take a look at some 
| of the best puzzle games for Linux.    



The last Linux adoption barrier is marketing

,----[ Quote ]
| IBM gave us the Linux boy” ads. Like all IBM ads, they are convoluted and 
| make little sense. Frankly, those ads would have been better suited for 
| Wikipedia. A little boy swiftly absorbing the wisdom, advice, and information 
| of the ages? Yeah, Wikipedia ad, but at the end of the ad, I would have no 
| idea what Linux is.    



GNU/Linux on the desktop: a modest business proposal

,----[ Quote ]
| GNU/Linux is a great project, with fantastic underlying technology,
| but its name conjures up images of geek humor, stuffy Unix-like
| machines from a 1970s university, and--worst of all--servers. Not
| desktops. Therefore, I propose we set up a business that will
| fork the kernel into a new project, let?s call it MegaOS, and
| install that onto a set of new machines, each branded with our
| corporate MegaOS logo.


[Opinion] Switch to Linux? No. Get a Mac Clone.

,----[ Quote ]
| I'm a marketing guy, and I look at everything in my world from a marketing 
| perspective. From that perspective I think this whole "Switch to Linux" 
| thing is unnecessarily hard work - so I take an easier approach to help 
| people move in that direction.
| [...]
| And to finish this article, Kudos to Linux. I get two reactions when
| people look at the desktop on my Laptop and Desktop. One is.. "Er.. is
| that a Mac?" and the other is "Why don't you just buy a Mac?". Well
| kudos is due, because I don't NEED to buy a Mac. I can get the Mac
| look and feel, which I like, and the massive productivity boost of
| the desktop cube ( and enjoyable extras ) even on my three year
| old HP laptop.


IBM updates Power server, Linux marketing

,----[ Quote ]
| To that end, IBM also plans to announce a marketing program at
| the Open Solutions Summit, an open-source conference in New York.
| The plan, a new element to its "migration factory," is intended
| to woo customers using Linux on x86 servers running the popular
| "LAMP" stack of Web server software--Linux, the Apache Web server,
| the MySQL database and the PHP scripting language to create Web
| pages on the fly.


Open Source, Linux and the importance of marketing and public perception

,----[ Quote ]
| Almost all of our interviewees found Ubuntu Linux easy to use (no
| surprises there). Most of them were truly astonished as to how much
| punch Ubuntu packs in a single CD. A large portion of the interviewees
| were actually willing to try it, especially if the BSA threatened to crack
| their businesses down (that they were using pirated software is, of
| course, not a surprise as well). Just a single person, who seemed to hate
| computers, did not find anything to like about Ubuntu (and this person
| fits the reproductive learning profile -- she memorized procedures instead
| of learning concepts about computer usage).

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
