Computer Business Review, March 13, 2015

"Interested in the open source OS but unsure what to try?" asks Jimmy Nicholls in Computer Business Review.

"Linux has always been the outsider's operating system. Even more hipster than Apple's iOS and completely off the radar of most Microsoft Windows users, the open source OS umbrella covers an ever increasing collection of mutations and flavours, known to its users as distros (short for distributions).

InformationWeek, February 24, 2015

Charles Babcock writes in InformationWeek, "Here are seven things we bet you didn't know about Linux and why it remains a software project of historic proportions.
