Lin-dependence day!

,----[ Quote ]
| On Friday I was honored to sit in front of a 
| group from the Techrepublic community and talk 
| open source. The driving force of the debate 
| was open source vs. proprietary software. The 
| ever-present subtext of that debate is Linux 
| vs. Windows. The audience was pleasantly 
| surprised when the debate never turned sour. 
| Why is that? So many asked. The answer, 
| although one-sided, is simple.


The Advantages of Using Linux

,----[ Quote ]
| Every now and then, I receive emails from 
| people who are asking me to explain the 
| benefits or advantages of using Linux. I just 
| answered them with a link or two to articles 
| that could give a good explanation regarding 
| the subject matter. But since I realized that 
| it would be better if my response were based on 
| my own experience, I finally decided to write a 
| simple list that I could use to answer those 
| who want to know the benefits of using Linux.


10 Misconceptions about Linux

,----[ Quote ]
| Linux is not an OS, it is actually a kernel 
| which is the middleware between your Apps and 
| Hardware! The Better the Kernel, the better the 
| system responds! and better error handling!



Who Should - or Shouldn't - Use Linux?

,----[ Quote ]
| Independence Day may come only once a year
| here in the land of stars and stripes, but
| the topic of independence is one that's never
| far from Linux bloggers' minds.


'Lindependence 2008' aims to Free Felton from Microsoft Windows

,----[ Quote ]
| "We're trying to get as many people as possible to switch to Linux, because
| the main thing is most people don't use computers for fancy things, so
| they're wasting money," said Ken Starks, a Linux advocate and owner of HeliOS
| Solutions in Austin, Texas, which strives to create technologies and provide
| cost effective products to its customers.


Lindependence 2008 -- An invitation

,----[ Quote ]
| Lindependence 2008 introduces Linux to the town of Felton, California --
| about 6,000 people who live at the foot of the San Lorenzo Valley in Santa
| Cruz County, California. The plan behind Lindependence 2008 involves
| assisting those wishing to declare their digital independence for an entire
| week -- starting on Independence Day 2008 -- by using their choice of distro
| and FOSS programs.


Linuxy Declarations of Independence

,----[ Quote ]
| It's almost the Fourth of July, and few things represent the freedoms we
| enjoy as Americans more than open source software. Now, if only the
| proprietary world would open up their drivers, quit violating the GPL and
| abandon copy protection, we'd all be a lot happier.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.10 (GNU/Linux)
