So people said that 2004 is the year for Linux. Surely there have been a significant number of developments that the fruits of are now just being seen. Things from Kernel 2.6, Novell buying Suse and Ximian, and IBM's involvement are a few of the bigger things to have happened to Linux over the last year. Other companies are now coming on board to the Linux way of thinking and millions if not billions of dollars are now being dumped into Linux to develop it as the premier business and home computing solution. Microsoft has finally taken notice though they're not following the traditional business model of make a better product they've just fallen back on the usual FUD of how Linux costs more and is less secure. Personally as a worker in the computer industry (My paying job) I've seen that Windows each month has less of a leg to stand on.

gave my presentation "KDE 3.2: A User's Perspective" to my local Linux User Group last Tuesday night as previously announced. The talk was well received, and left some people (even KDE users) overwhelmed with new information. It just goes to show that I wasn't the only one who knew KDE was a great environment, but hadn't even scratched the surface yet! My presentation 'slides', a collection of over 3MB of screenshots of KDE in action. click here

Linux kernel 2.6 introduces improved IO scheduling that can increase speed -- "sometimes by 1,000 percent or more, [more] often by 2x" -- for standard desktop workloads, and by as much as 15 percent on many database workloads, according to Andrew Morton of Open Source Development Labs...compelet story
