Ewww.. buying GNOME or KDE? No :) that's free software heh..
In my opinion, Paradigm shifts can be good..
The computer industry needs to continue to learn that Microsoft is not the
only solution.

Slashdot has not posted too much non-intel news.. this is true. Besides
PPC news, I'd like to see whats going on with Linux on Alpha, Sparc, etc..

Right now, when people think Linux, a lot think x86.. and Red Hat.

By the way, take alook at no fancy graphics just lots
of news.
