Ubuntu may be headed to mobile devices and TV’s (aka “Smartscreens”). That means another derivative of Linux will enter the market. Will Ubuntu disrupt the market?
The big news in the Linux world last weekend was the release of Debian 6, named “Squeeze.” It’s been in the works for two years. (Debian releases are named after characters in the original Toy Story movie.) Debian is one of the three granddaddies of Linux (the other two are Slackware and Red Hat); most […]
Saturday night, I decided to upgrade my Ubuntu laptop, having seen that the release version of Ubuntu 10.4 was available. The online process was easy. (If I used the Gnome desktop, a notification icon would have appeared in the notification area; since I use a simpler GUI, I check for updates every week or so. […]
I heard that Ubuntu 9.10 (“Karmic Koala”–I take no reponsibility for Mark Shuttlesworth’s choice in names) was out, so I decided to upgrade my laptop. I started the Update Manager, ran the update routine to make sure I was at the latest version of Ubuntu 9.04 (“Jaunty Jackalope”), then clicked the “Upgrade” button, which had […]

I have been a rabid Opera fanboy since Opera v. 3. I now have gotten Opera on the netbook that I discussed here. Here’s how I did it (hint: it worked the same as if I were on regular laptop or desktop):
Netbooks seem to be the newest hot thing. I saw my first one a week ago, and it was slick. It was an XP box, but the user was running Ubuntu Linux under Wubi (we talked geek for almost an hour). Windows is promising a stripped down version of Windows 7 adapted to netbooks. In […]
If you want to try Linux, here’s how to get it. Some may think this post is very elementary geek, but I have two thoughts in making it. We were all newbies once. Even the most experienced and expert Windows home user may have never installed an operating system from scratch.
The original article on the station:WKOW – ‘Woman blames Dell for missing online classes’. Maybe an antagonizing title as it brought many Dell and Ubuntu users online to blast the TV station and the woman. And why did Ubuntu users do this? Well – this person wanted Windows instead of Ubuntu. The story starts out […]

Great Show – Talked about a lot of stuff. Ubuntu, Top level Domains, iPhone, Digg, Sim cards, energy efficiency, IT certification, Microphones and Green Tea. Also, Hour 1 was the 100th recording on uStream. Pretty cool stuff!
This week I pulled out an old PC to see if I could use it for a project. It was an HP 800 mHz Celeron with Windows 98 on it. I turned it on and went through the screens and played with the old Operating system. Then it occurred to me: There are probably people […]
