VMware Fusion 1.1 Email Article To a Friend View Printable Version 
Sunday, June 01 2008 @ 10:57 AM EDT
Contributed by: sde

Until now, if you wanted to run an occasional Windows application on a Mac, you had to install Apple’s very own Boot Camp and select which OS you wanted to boot into after you powered on. But VMware changes all of that with the VMware Fusion, an application that lets you run Windows (or Linux for that matter) within the OS X environment on any Intel-based Mac.

Linux examined: Fedora 9 Email Article To a Friend View Printable Version 
Thursday, May 15 2008 @ 02:35 PM EDT
Contributed by: sde

For many of us, our first painful introduction to old-school Linux installs came from installing early versions of Red Hat. Like most early Linux installs, it was a highly technical, highly finicky process that was best left to the experts.

Tuesday, May 13 2008 @ 02:56 PM EDT
Contributed by: sde

Fedora 9, the latest release from the Fedora Project, goes up for download on Tuesday. The ninth release of Fedora ushers in a number of changes aimed at making the venerable distribution a more newbie-friendly desktop, but longtime users needn't fear a great dumbing down; version 9 packs plenty of power user punch as well.

Contributed by: sde

Nexuiz runs on an improved Quake engine called DarkPlaces. The engine has been undergoing on-and-off development by Lord Havoc, the game's creator, for several years. On icculus.org, Lord Havoc says he developed a custom OpenGL-only engine for DarkPlaces, and other modifications that "support Windows WGL and Linux GLX and have greatly improved graphics and image quality."

Review: HP's Mini-Note Rivals Apple's MacBook Air Email Article To a Friend View Printable Version 
Thursday, May 01 2008 @ 02:38 PM EDT
Contributed by: sde

One thing missing, though, is a CD/DVD drive. With Linux, all your software is available over the Internet, so you may not even need to read or burn discs. But you can always add an external drive for around $50. An extra $50 gives you double the memory and a traditional 120GB hard disk drive.

Asus Eee PC 900 Linux Edition Email Article To a Friend View Printable Version 
Friday, April 25 2008 @ 02:17 PM EDT
Contributed by: sde

The 701 was first shown in June 2007 and was launched the following October. It quickly won plaudits for its compact, highly portable size and its low cost. We loved it, but like most Eee users we found the screen to be just too small. The sub-notebook's battery life also left much to be desired.

HP 2133 Mini-Note PC (Via C7-M 1.2GHz, 1GB RAM, 120GB HDD, Suse Linux Enterprise Desktop 10) Email Article To a Friend View Printable Version 
Thursday, April 17 2008 @ 02:12 PM EDT
Contributed by: sde

While the Asus Eee PC and Intel's Classmate and Netbook platforms have convinced us that low-cost, low-power laptops can be genuinely useful, we still long for something a little more upscale than the plastic construction of those systems. HP's bold entry into the mininotebook market comes in the form of the 2133 Mini-Note PC, a 9-inch laptop with a tailored look and magnesium alloy chassis that starts at $599 for Windows (or $499 for Linux) and tops out at $749 with extras including Bluetooth, a Webcam, a 7,200rpm hard drive, and 2GB of RAM.
