Free Ubuntu CDs

Sunday, April 16th, 2006

I've just received my free Ubuntu Linux CDs I requested few weeks ago. It took a long time to travel from The Netherlands to Malaysia. I'm still fixing and configuring my old Pentium III PC for it.

Boot Camp: Macs do Windows, too

More and more people are buying and loving Macs.

Called Boot Camp (for now), you can download a public beta today.

I bet we are not going to get anything similar from Microsoft, are we?
