PC-BSD and Ubuntu on the $0 Laptop

Sure Zenwalk was doing all right on the $0 Laptop (Gateway Solo 1450, 1.3 GHz Celeron, 256 MB RAM). But I had Partition Magic, and it was time to divide the / partition in half to dual-boot. My first test was PC-BSD 1.3 (I've had the CD for a few months.) It's the first BSD I've ever been able to boot. ... Big surprise: Unlike Zenwalk, PC-BSD has some kind of laptop power management implemented. The fan finally fell silent, only turning on occasionally.

BIND 9 DNS Administration Reference Book

This book comes to me in an unusual way. I received an email from the publisher and editor asking if I'd be willing to review BIND 9 DNS Administration Reference Book. Ok, that's not unusual. In fact, it happens to me all the time. What is unusual is that I'd never heard of Reed Media Services before. One reason is that they seem to be a smaller publishing house that was originally started to "print newsletter publishing, online publishing (including related software design), and providing related internet hosting services". The other reason is that they've only produced two books thus far (The OpenBSD PF Packet Filter Book is the other one).

Office shootout: Impress vs. Microsoft PowerPoint, round 2

How does the current version of (OOo) compare with Microsoft Office in its ability to produce slide presentations? The last time I tried to answer that question, two years ago, both OOo Impress and Microsoft PowerPoint had features that the other lacked. To see how the two programs compare now, I installed Microsoft Office 2007 and 2.3, and went through the process of designing a slide show from start to finish. To my surprise, the results were more decisive than in my last comparison. They're not enough to award a knockout victory, but, even based on points, the winner is clear.
