"Before jumping into this, let me say that's what
popular isn't the same thing as what's important. So, I'm giving
you a twofer list. The first is the most popular of my stories, and
then there are the stories, which I think are the most important
for Linux's future. OK? OK! 2009's Most Popular Linux Blogs
"1) Ubuntu to make Linux application installation idiot
"The headline said it all. The program arrived in Ubuntu 9.10, a
distribution I like a lot. The Ubuntu Software Center has proven to
make installing software on Ubuntu much easier.
"2) A first look at KDE 4.3
I really, really disliked the first versions of the KDE 4.x desktop
series, but by KDE 4.3, they finally got it right.
"3) Who writes Linux: Big Business
For some reason, people still think that Linux developers live in
their parent's basements. So, so wrong. As I pointed out in this
piece, Linux is actually written by professional programmers
working for major companies."
