And now for 2010

| 6. Linux Mint goes upscale: Having gotten 
| tired of the minty freshness and looking to 
| appeal to more cosmopolitan tastes, Linux 
| Mint will change over the course of the year 
| to something a little more contemporary. It 
| becomes Linux Merlot, with a bouquet that 
| resonates from the north side of the vineyard 
| slope. The distro will go a lot better with 
| most cheeses.
| 5. Also, Linux Mint forks into a smaller 
| distro: Linux Mint developers who donât drink 
| wine, or anything else alcoholic, will fork 
| the distro and make a version that will only 
| run on thin clients, making it . . . say it 
| with me . . . Linux Thin Mint. Monty Python 
| fans continue to roll on the floor at the 
| mere reference.



2010 - A Linux Odyssey.

| My Linux Odyssey for 2010 is going to be two
| pronged. One, as the control op here at the
| Linux Journal's Virtual Ham Shack, I am going
| to start the process of converting my few
| Amateur Radio programs to Linux. One of the
| first programs I want to dive into is Xastir,
| the APRS program. My training is as a
| geographer, with a focus on cartography, so
| anything maps is right up my alley and I look
| forward to leveraging the abilities and
| capabilities of Xastir. Second, I am going to
| continue my focus on Linux, particularly in
| business, as we move through the year in my
| occasional posting in this space.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
