Wednesday, November 12 2008 @ 02:40 PM EST
Contributed by: sde

Linux just keeps popping up on many of the popular gadgets that are hogging the limelight nowadays. Some are quite conspicuous about it, like the Android phone that is being developed by a group that makes it very obvious, calling themselves the Open Handset Alliance.

PSPP brings an industry standard statistical tool to Linux Email Article To a Friend View Printable Version 
Thursday, October 16 2008 @ 02:53 PM EDT
Contributed by: sde

Those are the three characteristics that define Ubuntu for the desktop, the Debian-derived Linux operating system which has proved hugely popular with open source enthusiasts. It’s free (as in beer and as in speech), each version has a daft name like Hardy Heron or Gutsy Gibbon, and it has an attractive GUI which makes Windows users feel right at home, making it an attractive choice for companies or individuals considering ditching a Microsoft operating system.
