IE 7 and Firefox: Who Wins Now?

I downloaded the Internet Explorer 7 public beta this week and installed it on a couple of my Windows XP machines. Here's the short review: IE7 is a superb piece of software. If Mozilla hadn't caught Microsoft sitting complacently on its corporate butt, Firefox would [may] never have had a chance against this product.

Even so, Firefox still has one advantage, achieved with the help of its high profile and market momentum during the past 15 months, that will keep Internet Explorer stuck on the B-team.

New Vendor Interview: MadTux



The MadTux is a new Linux vendor with a mad idea for pushing Linux out to the wild. At present with wide pipes on their end, download speeds are limited on the client side only by the potential capacity of the users' ISP. The fees are modest, but you no longer have to wait at the mailbox looking for the latest distribution if it matches one on the MadTux list. In the interview we try to understand what attracted them to Linux and why they see this business as providing an important service to the Linux community.

Open source Windows Server, Microsoft's next poisonous pill?

When Microsoft launched its first shared source initiative, Eric S Raymond called it a 'poisonous pill'. His opinion was, anyone who ever saw the 'shared' code, could be sued by Microsoft if the viewer ever wrote code that even looked like the shared Microsoft code. The latest Microsoft initiative to 'open source' parts of the Windows Server to settle with the EC may be one of the latest of Redmond's poisonous pills.

French Cops Use Open Source for Variety, Consistency

Paris: France has two national police forces, each reporting to a different ministry.

Both are turning to open source software to achieve their aims.

Degunk Linux and debunk FUD

  • Mad Penguin; By Christian Einfeldt (Posted by VISITOR on Feb 4, 2006 7:16 PM EDT)
  • Story Type: Reviews; Groups: Community
I met the most amazing San Francisco Muni Bus driver the other day. Let's call him Ralph Kramden. (Not his real name). I took the bus to work. Ralph was the driver. He and I chatted. Ralph wants to partition his Windows XP hard drive, but XP won't let him. I suggested Linux. Did Ralph freak out? Did he veer the bus into on-coming traffic? No, Ralph never flinched. He wants to give it a try.

What Linux distribution do you use as a desktop?



I don't believe the reports from IDC and others on desktop Linux use. I keep fiddling with statistics and I get a higher figure. Now, I'm counting more than Novell's Linux Desktop and the Red Hat desktop. I'm curious if IDC even counts Linspire. But, if you start looking at downloads and do a scatter chart, the percentage runs higher than people say.

So, I started a thread in Lxer's Linux Meta Forum to get a feel for what people use.

Please go to that thread and let me know what you use. Please, also tell me why you use that distribution, if you have any annoyances with it and if you'd like something added.
