The need to Ubuntize people!

,----[ Quote ]
| Anyway, my conclusion here is that people is starting 
| to realize that there are other alternatives than just 
| sticking with one operating system, and that the best 
| thing of all is that they wonât have viruses. However, 
| they are really not aware that Linux exists. This 
| clearly shows that thereâs a huge market were Linux, 
| and specially Ubuntu, can kick in, becauseâ they are 
| paying companies for virus free solutions, such as Mac, 
| while they are not aware that this is not their only 
| solution.. From my point of viewâ most of these people 
| only uses their computers to edit documents, listen to 
| music, and browsing the Internetâ and this is something 
| that they could do with Ubuntuâ without a problem! So, 
| letâs start Ubuntizing people!!


Ubuntu OS can Save Energy

| The point I would like to drive home with this blog 
| post is that E-waste is a HUGE problem in our society. 
| And I would highly recommend anyone view a documentary 
| called "Manufactured Landscape" to learn more about 
| what I am talking about. We can all do simple things, 
| but please remember that when you throw electronics 
| away, that YOU are contributing to the decline of our 
| environment. Their are recycling centers everywhere 
| that will help recycle your old electronics and in some 
| cases re-use them as well.

Vista gets slated - by the Greens

,----[ Quote ]
| The Green Party has slammed Microsoft and it's forthcoming operating
| system, Windows Vista, in a withering attack on the company's "monopoly".
| Microsoft not only takes criticism for allegedly environmentally
| unfriendly policies, but for attacking civil liberties.
| The party claims that "Vista gives Microsoft the ability to lock
| you out of your computer," and that "Microsoft are determined not
| to play fair" in the video content market.
