"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."
