Excellent Linux Article

We’re back and getting ready to publish the final head-to-head battle between MEPIS Linux and PCLinuxOS. However, to keep everyone occupied in the meantime, I’ve stumbled across a really fantastic article published in the MIT Technology Review. If you can stand to read all 6 pages…you’ll thank yourself. The author brings out some really nice points and touches on many things that have been echoed by a couple people at Lxer.com and even a few I haven’t heard yet. Take a gander at that article and let us know what you think.

We’ll have the final results to our experiment sometime this weekend. For those of you who haven’t voted on the badge/icon to give to the winning distro, head over to the forums and cast your vote. Thanks again for reading Linux-Blog. I should be able to get back up to speed by next week…moving really stinks. Actually, unpacking boxes after moving stinks :p

    Unpacking is indeed a pain. I have unpacked boxes in the living room, the garage, the ceiling etc. Thanks for your commitment regardless of your personal duties.

    Gee…just read that article a couple days ago and was wondering “now where have I heard these things before…?” Oh yeah…from people like Devnet, myself, Texstar, Josh…glad to see the rest of the community catch up. I think this is the most frustrating part of being “part” of the Linux Community…it is increasingly difficult to get your ideas implemented. I sincerely doubt efforts like YALB and Lobby4Linux (L4L will go online 6/1/05) will be able to meet our individual and joint goals of an 18 month frontal attack on M$, but that won’t stop us from trying. The 18 month figure is an estimate of the time “we” have to take advantage of the Longhorn delay and the infighting going on with IE7. I may have been a bit over-optimistic about our impact, but what the hell…damn the torpedo’s, full speed ahead
