Hardware And Software Bonanza Coming Up

Filed under: computers,gadgets,linux,open source,windows vista,wishlist — vagus @ 10:08 am

A bunch of new GNU/Linux distributions’ releases are coming up and will coincide with my plans to buy a new desktop and a new tablet PC for home use.

OpenSuse 10.3 is coming October 4th, Ubuntu 7.10 (codename: Gutsy Gibbon) is coming October 18th and Fedora 8 is coming November 8th. I plan to install and play with each one and decide on which distro to settle. My current preference is Ubuntu even though I like KDE better than GNOME. I’m currently running Ubuntu “Gutsy” Beta on my home desktop and “Feisty Fawn” (Ubuntu 7.04) on my work desktop and am very impressed with things.

Instant Messenger and E-Mail Etiquette (and Flamewars)

Saw this post on the “mobile help” (John Kennedy) blog. Doesn’t mention those cute emoticons. ;-p
The comments has a link to some 25 e-mail etiquette rules.

Reminded me of a recent article on why flamewars happen.
