Read it and give me your comments. It’s rewritten, shorter and I think stronger then the first version. Enjoy reading! Read it here: https://peterpparker.wordpress.com/v20-the-guide-to-the-100-linux-desktop-revolution/


For the people reading the commit-digest.org from last weekend (http://commit-digest.org/issues/2007-07-22/) already noticed what was posted by mail: No, I don’t think we are ready for a beta release and the API + Feature Freeze that goes with a beta release. I think we should tag an Alpha3 on 25 July and extend our freeze dates […]


I was gone for some days. Nothing happened here. Well there was a storm over the blog when the 100% guide appeared and I’m going to continue this project. For now there is something ahead what I want to touch first: the (100%) Kubuntu Review. I’m probably going to start with Kubuntu, Ubuntu maybe to […]

It seems that the Canonical people are keeping up the good fight for now together with Red Hat but you never know. Therefore I would like to express that I want all these cooperations to know that […]


It has bugged me from the beginning that KDE was going to be the little sister of big brother GNOME in the Ubuntu distro. That’s why I began to state the whole issue by just referring to the website of both of the projects. A reader commented on this post and made me feel even […]


Just an interesting note. A lot of people who enter this blog and find it with google, … come here with the terms “ubuntu broke kvm feisty” or “bcm43xx issue” or something similar. I haven’t checked the situation lately but this makes me seem that they put out an release that had two significant problems […]


Okay, I have to admit I love the word drop in my latest blog entrys so here we go again: Ubuntu went to 7 like Kubuntu and the other ones too and ubuntu.com was turned into a shiny new website (well I don’t like it that much and I don’t think it gets the user […]
