Life without Windows or OS X

GNU/Linux is quite possibly the most important free software achievement since the original Space War, or, more recently, Emacs. It has developed into an operating system for business, education, and personal productivity. GNU/Linux is no longer only for UNIX wizards who sit for hours in front of a glowing console. Are you thinking about switching to Linux and want to learn how to use it? Have you been using GNU/Linux for some time and want to learn even more? This is the place for you.

No O.S. just Virtualization

Today in 2006 the choice of operating system is a critical one. People really use computers for applications, not the OS. An OS is only as good as its ISVs (Independent software vendors).

I had a crazy thought...what if we had a world of virtual machines. It's a technology that allows you to run multiple OSs simultaneously on one computer. In other words in a few years your choice of operating systems could become like Web browsers is right now. Many people Web browser have 2 or more installed on a system. AMD and Intel are shipping CPUs with hardware support for virtualization making virtualization run smoother and faster than ever before. Mac Linux or Win as we know today I feel will be for different.

something to think about.....
