  • FirstLinux.com: SuSE Linux Professional 7.3 Review (2001-10-30 21:11:22)
    "We would want to test this distribution for a longer period before recommending using this to be used in a corporate environment; many of the fundamental components are the latest versions. But from the limited tests carried out it functioned perfectly well as an Intranet server running Apache, MySQL and DB4Web. Overall this is SuSE's best ever distribution and looks like being our favorite Linux distribution, at least for now."

  • LinuxDevices.com: Open source MyLinux PLW project is scuttled (2001-10-30 16:03:51)
    "The response to MyLinux was strong in terms of vocal support, but fell quite shorter than anticipated when it came down to putting money in front of the mouth. My intended goal and purpose for starting MyLinux was to give back something to the Linux Community. In my opinion it has been a complete failure. I may have been better off by donating the MyLinux development money to the GNU project."

  • The Register: Win-XP vs Red Hat 7.2 (2001-10-30 05:55:00)
    "But alas, if XP is dumbed-down to unbearable depths, 7.2 is still bitchy, unpredictable and high-maintenance. It's still stuck in the realm of advanced users. Damn."
