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 […]


Dear readers!

Welcome to the readers coming over through StumbleUpon, Digg, VistaSucks and LinuxToday and everybody else! With the guide I started a rough draft for a way to get Linux mainstream and I would love to develop this idea further so at the end there could be a complete roadmap.  What do I need? I need […]


Well I promised it somehow… here it comes: https://peterpparker.wordpress.com/the-guide-to-100-linuxkde-success-the-linux-manifest/ (or click on the top the tab “the guide to”) Well worth a read and yes it’s long but it includes a lot of ideas so read it and comment on it and spread the word!

Welcome in the world of tomorrow. That was the background of my last story. I put up on how Dell was going to use Linux to be more efficent in money making and just the day later they announce that they will fire 10% of their workers, 8000 people on the street, to make even […]


Welcome in the world of tomorrow. While Steve Jobs and Bill Gates are hanging out together and having a great time on stage, we see Linux move foward to – whatever – nothing. The guy who brought Linux on the Dell finally got that done but where is the Linux world really heading? Nowhere! Nothing […]


So I started more on the Ubuntu/Kubuntu side and now moved more to a general Linux view, thats where I will stay, but I still want to have a good look at the most-popular distro at the moment, Ubuntu, and Kubuntu, because its KDE and shows diffrent approached, and then will put that together as […]
