[News] GNU/Linux Pushes Macs and Windows to the Curb

The Linux Home Office: What's In Your Cyberspace?

,----[ Quote ]
| What does your home computer lab look like? Do you have a dedicated office, a 
| corner of the living room, a lounge-in-bed setup? Maybe you're set up more 
| like an old-fashioned terminal server, with a big workstation in a closet and 
| several remote PCs. Maybe you have whittled your computing herd down to a 
| single sleek laptop.    
| Every time I help a friend with their Mac or Windows computer it's a good 
| reminder of how restricted those platforms are. Every little thing is a big 
| hairy deal, and the only flexibility you have is do you want to pay through 
| the nose now or later, and how many times do you want to hear "No, you can't 
| do that"?    


Macs In the Enterprise Are Dead (and Chrome OS Killed Them)

,----[ Quote ]
| So here's the problem: Apple is essentially a hardware company, yet fancy 
| hardware becomes irrelevant when all you need is something simple which can 
| run a browser. Why would an enterprise spend $2499 on a Mac Pro or $1499 on 
| an iMac that looks like a table lamp when a $200 Linux netbook will run 
| Firefox or Safari just as well? These days netbooks come in white, anyway,    



Deploying KDE [and Debian] to 52 million young people

,----[ Quote ]
| By the end of this year 29,000 labs serving some 32,000,000 students will be
| fully deployed and in active use.
| By the end of next year (2009) those numbers will have swelled to 53,000 labs
| serving some 52,000,000 students.
