Not a Programmer? Linux Needs You!

,----[ Quote ]
| Inspired by a comment I received yesterday 
| explaining the problems with non-
| programmers getting involved in helping 
| Linux projects, I have decided to give a 
| little guidance on how to help out if you 
| are not the code monkey type.

Opinion: Why Linux Should Not Get a Free Ride

,----[ Quote ]
| I refuse to review a distro and say âooh a 
| nice distro that I really liked and looks nice 
| and you should try itââ without making sure 
| that I compare it to the best out there. The 
| teams behind each and every Linux distribution 
| deserves our respect, and by comparing them 
| with the best we show that we admire their 
| effort enough to expect the best from them.
| 
| Butâ Donât We Get What we Pay For?
| 
| We get more. Over the past years Linux has 
| come along in leaps and bounds. And it has 
| been hard going. Only within the last five 
| years have Linux become really mainstream. 
| Sure you could have yourself a desktop OS with 
| minimal fiddle since the days of Mandrake 
| Linux that came in those blue boxes, and who 
| featured the venerable Drake the Wizard to 
| help you through the new experience.
| 
| Now you get the most full featured and best 
| operating systems around only a download away. 
| You get the best desktop compositing that 
| money will not buy, you get the most stable 
| kernel that is used on high end servers across 
| the world running your netbook. You get 
| security, features, stability, looks, 
| compatibility and speed â at no cost.

Android opens door to IC open source 

,----[ Quote ]
| The backers of Android point to the benefits of an open-source model: more 
| innovation as more companies develop solutions, faster time-to-market, lower 
| price points and even better utilization of the sheer power of the 
| applications processors. Indeed, Texas Instruments and Qualcomm hope their 
| participation in Android will spur design wins and make it easier to 
| incorporate their chips into the wave of Android handset introductions the 
| market is likely to see later this year.
