Linuxfr, THE french linux news website, announce today the latest
We can read :
"Ubuntu a encore beaucoup à apprendre de SuSE et Fedora (félicitations
à Máirín Duffy"
About artwork : "Ubuntu still have a lot of things to learn from SuSE
and Fedora (Congratulations to Máirín Duffy)".
It's worth to notice that it's certainly a Ubuntu user who wrote
So... once again, congratulations Máirín.
(I'm so sorry for those who can't read french)
I'm just putting this interview up now, but I'm having trouble putting
the pictures up to go with it....
Is there some trouble with the wiki today?
If not, would somebody else mind adding the attachments if I forward them along?
"Join Us in the Third Annual Desktop Linux Survey
-- Linux Foundation Desktop Linux Workgroup
Have your say on what desktop Linux really needs! Please Join us in the
Third Annual Desktop Linux Survey, at:
The survey will take only few minutes of your time, and your feedback is
essential in helping us to focus our development efforts and accelerate
the global adoption of Linux desktops and clients. For example, past
surveys highlighted the need to address printing and wireless issues, so
we set up focused workgroups and conferences to help developers and
vendors work out common solutions to these requirements."
When I use Fedora a lot more for my own uses, I will write more about it,
since I chose it for my main Linux OS. Right now, I am trying to hook up
with other writers, I am not a Programmer,
just a Super User, looking for alternatives to ALL of the apps I used to use
on Windoze and what
I use on my MAC as well. My mission is to convert regular folks who don't
know Windoze, MAC,
or Linux, and convert them into Linux Users, IT guys can help me out with
this task! Onward and forward!
All of your points are well in good but Public Awareness is still not
out there for Fedora.
What I define as BETTER : The UK's Linux Format comes out with
Book-Like Magazines for every major Linux Distro with a FREE DVD
needs it's own Book-Like Magazine published a month after a release at
every newsstand at every Borders/Barnes & Noble/Wal-Mart/Target store
in USA! That is one way to get out the Public Awareness, another is
encouragement for every linux club in USA to set up a monthly event
highlighting what linux can do for their community be it a church, a school,
a store, or a small business (kind of like a job fair kind of thing.)
I will be
going to a lot of linux user groups online to drum up ideas for how to promote
linux AND my linux blog/future linux magazine as well. This is a worthy crusade
for me since I am not just a fan of Fedora, I am also a Writer who
loves to write/
speak up about issues important to me. Fedora is one of them!
Why I created linuxglobe.wordpress.com : I am tired of Windoze being
so dominant everywhere I go. When I was overseas, a month and a half
ago, I saw so many PCs with just Windoze on it. There were only two
stores that I been to that did sell Apple Computers. The only
magazine out there promoting Linux was the UK's Linux Format, I know
the UK has been publishing other Linux Magazines. But NO U.S.
Magazine is doing so, that is why I want to convert my blog into a
magazine with experts on Linux teaching me and others the benefits of
Linus Torvald's masterpiece : Linux!
I can go on and on, but my blog will have more to say...
Continue the hard work and make Fedora much more than just an OS, make
it a movement!
"While idling, Ubuntu 7.10 was consuming the most power with 41 Watts
while Fedora 8 Test 3 had consumed the least amount of power at 38
Watts. Both Windows XP and Vista were consuming 39 Watts while idling.
As this system was using SiS Real 256 graphics, Compiz Fusion was not
enabled by default for Ubuntu 7.10, yet it had consumed the most power."
