- Cuba Opts for Linux to Guarantee Technological Independence
Assistance with the understanding and expansion of the Linux computer operating system was the main outcome of the Free Software Festival of the Youth Computing Club, which took place in the central Cuban province of Cienfuegos
- KDE 4.2 is flat out going to rock
That’s my prediction. Of course, the truth of the matter is that KDE 4.2 (trunk) flat out rocks today. Seriously. I have never been more excited about the Linux desktop than I am right now. And this, 2+ months out from our actual KDE 4.2 release. I’ve been running OpenSUSE 11 for a couple of months now, and thanks to the awesome nightly/weekly KDE 4.2/trunk packages, I’m thoroughly enjoying pretty-darned-bleeding-edge 4.2/trunk packages, but with half the carbs, and I am loving what I’m seeing!

- How to ensure that your distribution gets rave reviews
Companies which sell GNU/Linux distributions could increase the profile and sales of their products in one way: install them on top-tier laptops, tune them up so that everything runs like a dream and then hand them out to those who write about GNU/Linux.
It’s time for Linux companies to start using such tactics – and it doesn’t matter even if the previous version of any distribution was canned.
One reason why GNU/Linux distributions get reviews varying from very good to miserable is because the reviewers use their own hardware. And each person wants GNU/Linux to run like an F1 on his/her hardware.
Supplying the distribution on a single platform will solve that problem. Nobody will be able to say they encountered problems – indeed, they would feel a sense of guilt if they did point out problems after having accepted such an expensive gift.

Like many companies United National Breweries (UNB) took a decision some time ago to lease its IT equipment instead of buying it outright.
In line with that decision UNB’s national IT manager Kevern Upton says that its primary IT suppliers for its financial systems were Unisys, who took responsibility for the server hardware and operating system, and Proteus, who took care of the financial system and the database that supports it.

- Review: Dell Inspiron Mini 9 netbook with Ubuntu Linux
Where the Mini 9 really scores, however, is with its 1024×600 resolution, backlit 8.9inch display, which is bright, sharp and colourful.
All in all, this is a well made, well-implemented netbook and I particularly like the way Dell have customised Ubuntu to work with the device. But would I buy one? Probably not for me, but my kids might find the Mini 9 useful – and that keyboard would suit their eight-year-olds’ hands.
