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.
Just a kind reminder that our donation drive is still underway to fund the purchase of a new server.
Just a heads up that we'll be publishing our review of the TurboLinux Wizpy tomorrow at 12 noon EDT, be sure to check it out.
Our data center has been experiencing intermittent DSN issues the past few hours. Regular news updates will resume Tuesday morning.
Now is a perfect time to remind you that Linuxlookup is seeking individuals interested in contributing back to the Linux community.
Millions of websites are plagued by outrageous claims and humorous news articles every April fool’s day. Rather than sifting through the junk looking for legitimate articles, we've decided to join in on the foolery this year too. Most individuals clue in pretty fast as to what's going on, others just take the bait. Yesterday's Microsoft post was a joke!
Big things are going to happen with Linux in the next few years. Especially now that Beryl has changed their licensing to allow its inclusion in Ubuntu and Debian, and Dell offering a pre-installed distribution in the near future. This is just the beginning of the OSS takeover.
The Microsoft thing was all I could come up with in 10 minutes, next year I promise to be a little more creative on April fools. Thank you to everyone sending in emails questioning my mental health. Truthfully, I am launching two more projects soon and may be willing to sell off Linuxlookup under the right circumstances. For those of you with legitimate inquiries regarding business, please feel free to get in touch.
Now back to our regular scheduled programming.
I never thought I'd ever say this, but we're going to work for Microsoft and Linuxlookup.com is up for sale!
Though I've spent the last 11 years as a Linux/Open Source advocate, Microsoft has recently made me an offer too good to refuse. Our agreement forbids any promotion of Open Source Software in any fashion so I'm hoping to pass Linuxlookup on to an individual or organization that can take it to the next level.
As I pack my bags... Linuxlookup is being auctioned on eBay.
Viva la Microsoft!
