What's the Linux Holdup?

Giving desktop Linux a larger market share? To be honest, this can be a touchy subject for me, personally. Much of the reasoning behind my "rough feelings" on the matter stem from the fact that I disagree with much of the Linux and Microsoft camps in general. That's right, I think that large numbers from both groups are wrong, and it's because of this that each OS is experiencing so much trouble now in the press.

World Domination – Finding Linux Everywhere

In the march of the penguins to World Domination, I have seen Linux become more and more commonplace. Back with my first attempt to install Slackware Linux from 3.5” floppies onto my Packard Bell 386 Legend with its 40MB hard drive, 1x CD-ROM and S3 video knockoff, I never did get X to run with any resolution higher than 300x400. It was horrible – the desktop was so large that my screen couldn't contain all of it. The window manager, as I recall that day in 1994, was VWM. As I wasn't so interested in a GUI environment, and really just wanted an UNIX-like PC so I could practice things like shell scripting, it was “Ok” for me. It was not “good enough” for my girlfriend though. She had her Mac Performa and what I used didn't matter.

Swimming in the Global Talent Pool

When he was a 16-year-old student, Jeff Kiiza would never have imagined that 10 years later he’d be writing code in Perl, PHP/MySQL and AJAX for companies in the U.S., Canada, Australia and Spain — and that he’d be doing it from his home in Cordoba, Argentina. “Back then, it would have been a dream or science fiction,” he says. “But the availability of greater free-flowing bandwidth and companies turning to the Internet have allowed it.”
