"Best reasons to stop complaining that Word doesn't run on Linux: NeTraverse's Win4Lin Desktop 2.0 ($90 boxed, $60 for the downloadable edition) and VMWare's VMWare Express ($80) both let you run Windows from inside Linux, so you don't have to leave your favorite Windows apps behind."
"Product that ends your Mac OS X envy: Eazel got attention last year when it brought together members of the original Macintosh user interface team to create a new graphical shell for Linux. That shell, dubbed Nautilus, is described all too often as a file manager. That's like calling a classic Harley Davidson a "bike." Nautilus represents a new way for users to think about their data, and adapts to meet the user's needs in ways we haven't seen before."
"Best free office suite that keeps getting better: If you ask us, Sun's StarOffice 5.2 is one of the best office suites around: It's free, runs on Linux, and offers greater file compatibility with Microsoft Office than any other suite under Linux (or Windows)."
"Most awkward moment for a kernel creator: During the Golden Penguin Bowl, a quiz-show event, it fell to Linus Torvalds to define "BogoMips," a term he himself invented. When the judges ruled his answer insufficiently specific, the look on his face was absolutely priceless."
