Simple and Useful Ways to Optimize GNOME for Netbook Displays

,----[ Quote ]
| GNOME is highly customizable and can be tweaked to suit every user’s needs. 
| That’s why I think its versatility makes it a perfect desktop environment for 
| Linux netbooks.  
| Since netbook displays are small, desktop space should not be wasted. I have 
| here some tips that I hope you will find useful on how you can optimize GNOME 
| for your netbook’s diminutive desktop area.  


Microsoft has a new fraudulent meme about Linux being "locked down" (see below
for truth).


Netbook users: Microsoft says three apps is enough

| It makes sense in pure business-school 101 terms, but I think our culture is
| turning away from such heavy-handed business strategies as this. Social
| media, participatory communities and the current financial crisis is giving
| strength to those companies, brands and individuals who make a fair, honest
| and authentic contract with their users. (Just look at our recent
| Presidential campaign.) I’m not sure a pop up window saying, “Sorry, You
| Can’t Launch Excel Right Now. Please Close Firefox or Upgrade Today” really
| creates that impression. But is that enough? Will Linux really be able to
| compete against Redmond? I think this policy may make it slightly easier, but
| honestly it’s a difficult challenge. David, get out your slingshot of
| computing freedom.


Netbooks Open Linux Window at BETT

| On the same stand a large screen showed off the design appeal of the latest
| Ubuntu. This includes multiple windows rotating or rescaling. As this is
| better understood some Netbook users may return to Linux. Asustek Chairman
| Jonney Shih has predicted that about 60 percent of Eee PCs to be shipped in
| 2009 will have Windows XP.
