Windows Vista hasn’t been the most successful operating system. Since day one it has been plagued with poor support, dwindling sales, and even users who are downgrading to XP after forking over the cash for Microsoft’s latest blunder.

According to Ballmer, Linux and open-source software users currently violate 235 patents that he claims […]
Have you ever been talking to another geek, and they mentioned on Operating System you hadn’t heard about, or you just wanted to prove how geeky you are by listing a large variety of operating systems and its variants? Well, this post will help you fill your brain with OS’s. I won’t be covering every […]
By Fred Roth, Contributing Writer, [GAS] As of this month, the first round of Windows Vista Ultimate Extras have been sent out to customers “lucky” enough to have purchased the highest caliber of Microsoft’s newest operating system.

Lenovo, the fourth biggest computer manufacturer in the world, is making a poll asking YOU, the consumer, which distribution of Linux should run on their systems. If this kind of thing interests you, go ahead and vote. I’m going to put another poll question up asking which Linux you all would like to see offered. […]
