- Review: Pardus Linux
I wonder why Pardus is such an unknown distribution. It is easy to install, has a great configuration center, and a good package management system with plenty of packages to fulfill most peoples needs. The people behind Pardus have spent a lot of time to create a distro that looks good and is stable. I believe my granny can work with Pardus without problems. No messing with config-files in any way, just install it and start working with it. I will continue to use Pardus and have advised others to give it a try.
Good job, Pardus team!

PCLinuxOS, the hottest Linux distribution of 2007 have gone quiet for more than a year now. At the moment, a lot of PCLOS followers are probably anxiously waiting for their favorite distro’s 2008 version (if there is any). –There’s no definite release schedule, so we are left guessing.

Where’s the FUD? For years, Windows zealots have denounced Linux for being arcane, hard-to-use, and backward. Heavy reliance on the CLI for administration was cited as a failure to progress (through obstinacy, ignorance or both). Now, it appears that Microsoft is admitting that a powerful shell is indeed useful, forcing its fanboys to dine on crow tartare.
- Drivers? Don’t talk to me about drivers
Yet again, I butted up against the supposed ease of installation and configuration of Windows (in this case, XP). I passed a ThinkPad T40 on to a friend of mine and, because he’s all thumbs when it comes to computers (except for using certain software), I offered to help him install XP.
