I've been using FreeBSD since I dumped Linux six years ago at a friend's suggestion. I quickly learned to appreciate its intelligent design: a bare /etc where you can find only necessary system files, good use of /usr/local (most Linux distributions leave this empty and concentrate on filling /etc and /usr/*bin instead), an application system called Ports, which contains a set of scripts that download, install, and patch any program found in the /usr/ports directory, and a very good handbook.

Pamela Jones unfairly raked Linspire over the coals with this article, Freespire: A Linux Distro For When You Couldn't Care Less About Freedom. PJ, when you're right (which is most of the time) you're awesome, and when you're wrong you're awesomely wrong. Here is why.
The last time I did a review of a browser beta, I'm embarrassed to say I got it wrong. My apologies to Opera 9 fans. Your favourite browser is lightning fast - I just didn't wait for my cache to catch up. I still prefer the Firefox interface and I reckon the speed is comparable. Oh that's right, this article is supposed to be about the latest Internet Explorer 7 beta. In my opinion, it's a dog. It's slow and I hate the user interface.
