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.

A new browser to look out for. Change is good right?

It is called Google Chrome (how did they come up with that name). The people at Goggle believe they can add value for users and help drive innovation in the net world. The new browser features a process manager which means that each individual tab can run separate processes. If one crashes it will not affect the running of the other tabs. The search giant say that they are making all of Chromes code open source.

While it seems that Chrome is in a show down with IE and Firefox, but the target maybe really be the Windows OS. With Chrome you can search, chat, email and collaborate in a browser. Sounds like a neat idea. With more and more computing moving online, net browsers are the most critical piece of software on our desktops.

Will there be a Linux port?

“We're hard at work building versions for Mac and Linux too, and we'll continue to make it even faster and more robust.”
