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

But, this information is completely useless unless we are able to find and understand the relationships and trends hidden in these mountains. For projects involving complex research protocols, high-end statistical analysis tools such as SPSS and SAS are useful, but they come with high price tags and proprietary licenses. PSPP is an open-source clone of SPSS, one of the most commonly used proprietary statistical packages.

Ubuntu Server: Cheap 'n' Cheerful, and Easy to Use Email Article To a Friend View Printable Version 
Monday, October 13 2008 @ 04:06 PM EDT
Contributed by: sde

Cheap n cheerful, and easy to use. 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. Its 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.

Xandros Desktop 4 Professional review Email Article To a Friend View Printable Version 
Thursday, September 25 2008 @ 03:58 PM EDT
Contributed by: sde

To a lot of people, Ubuntu represents the most end-user-friendly nongeek-compatible Linux distribution. But there are other commercial distributions that work even harder to create a desktop experience that is, frankly, Windows-like.
