Another push for netbooks in Africa

,----[ Quote ]
| Usually when Iâm writing about netbooks in 
| Africa, they are coming from OLPC or a 
| local OEM selling Intel Classmates. Now, 
| however, IBM and Canonical (the company 
| that brings us Ubuntu) are bringing a 
| different strategy to the emerging African 
| market. By using cheap netbooks running 
| Ubuntu, coupled with IBMâs cloud computing 
| platforms, businesses that could not 
| otherwise afford computers for each of 
| their employees will have access to really 
| inexpensive computing.


Ubuntu: the complete beginner's guide

,----[ Quote ]
| It looks and feels a lot like Windows (more 
| or less), but, being very lightweight, it 
| runs very quickly, and - especially if you 
| mainly use the computer to browse the web - 
| it's a really great way of giving an older 
| machine a new lease of life.
| We thought we'd compile a beginner's guide 
| to installing it. The main thing is: don't 
| be afraid. It's much easier than you think. 
| And the satisfaction once you've done it 
| is...well, you be the judge. But we were 
| punching the air for hours. 


Customize Ubuntu 9.10's Grub Boot Screen

,----[ Quote ]
| Grub2, the new boot menu installed by 
| default with Ubuntu 9.10, can still look 
| pretty old-school ugly if your tastes don't 
| run with white terminal text on black. You 
| can, however, customize its resolution, 
| images, colors, and other aspects.



Mepis 8.0.10 perfects KDE 3.5.10

,----[ Quote ]
| KDE 4.3 is Great but I would suggest all newbies to try the
| last, KDE 3.5.10 release of Mepis 8 (8.0.10) before it moves
| into KDE 4 world (cos i don't know what will happen then).


If there were not many distros, were would KDE3 lovers go?

Simply Mepis 8 is a nice little Debian-based Linux distro

,----[ Quote ]
| I am now running the latest version of Simply Mepis 8, one of many offshoots
| of Debian Linux and therefore a cousin of the venerable Ubuntu. I am taken
| back a couple of years to the simpler days of the KDE 3.5 interface. KDE 4,
| the current darling, is a work of art by the guys at TrollTech, borrowing
| elements from Apple's Aqua interface, but this old tech favors reliability
| over flash, and as a law student I have little time to expore the wonders of
| KDE 4. Simply Mepis with KDE 3.5 is, in a word, familiar.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
