| 2) Operating System: Ubuntu
| Unless you're buying your laptop second-hand, it's going to come with the OS 
| pre-installed. If you haven't yet made your purchase, you may want to 
| consider one of the many models that uses Ubuntu Linux. It uses dramatically 
| fewer resources than Windows (the other most common operating system option 
| on low-cost laptops) and it's generally considered more secure. In addition, 
| Ubuntu includes many of the most popular open-source applications, such as 
| OpenOffice.org, Firefox, and others.

| Even if you purchase a Windows-based laptop with Internet Explorer 
| pre-installed, you should consider switching to Firefox. It's more secure 
| (which helps if you're using a laptop that lacks security features), and it's 
| fast and easy to use.

| deeper into Open Source project’s etymologies. Indeed many readers already 
| suggested that. Sadly I got sidetracked and put the whole idea on the back 
| burner.

| Let’s face it: Without a good set of office applications, your workday will

| Spring (formerly known as TA Spring or Total Annihilation: Spring), is a full

| The standard installation comes with a range of prepackaged mods, some which

| Spring’s core game engine is licensed under the GNU GPL.
