I've contemplated the direction of Linuxlookup for quite some time now. Though the decision was a difficult one, I assure you this is only short term. As of today, hourly news updates will cease. All man hours wil be dedicated to another Linux community project which will be launching soon. A redesign of Linuxlookup is also in the works.
- New Linux News site: LinuxLeak.com
- New Hardware Review site: Coming soon.
- Two undisclosed projects: Coming soon.
More details available in the coming weeks, check back for updates.
We'd like to wish all of our viewers around the world a safe and happy holiday season. We'll be spending time with friends and family until Wednesday, Januarary 2nd 2008. This means hourly news updates will continue in the New Year.
Yet another OS but on the ASUS Eee PC, this time it's Windows Vista. Check out the video.

IBM tried for the business market and had about as much luck. But Microsoft went after the home market.

The high price of international bandwidth using Satellites and it's negative performance due to high altitudes are also reviewed and how a third world country like Nepal is trying to improve them.

More and more open-source developers these days are employees of companies, paid to work on open-source projects, rather than independent programmers doing it for fun. The change raises issues for projects, programmers and employers alike.
