Links of the Day


Linspire have finally released a free distribution of their Linux operating system. This is an interesting move, which could see them moving away from being a z-list box shifter to being the iTunes of consumer software through CNR.

There is lots of tired Gateway and Dell boxes out there that could be given a new lease of life and installing Freespire provides a good way of removing and helping proof against malmare targeting the Windows platform.

It would be especially attractive in wi-fi enabled homes were computer access is at a premium as kids and parents currently duke it out over two or more computers.

For any tech-heads passing its based on the Debian distribution like Linspire.

AOL promises that it is releasing a MySpace product for the rest of us that will be 'kick-ass' according an AOL spokesperson quoted over on a Business 2.0 article at CNN Online. Looks like they've finally figured a way to leverage their huge instant messenger user base.

Apple have released a 17-inch version of the MacBook Pro, but it isn't really news as the rumour sites had it down pat for a few weeks now. Over at Crack Unit Iain Tait has been talking about life with his new MacIntel companion.
