Click ‘MORE’ Please n Read… This is Xgl/Compiz(now known as Beryl Project) running on my secondary comp which is an old (2002) dell with 2.4 ghz P4 proc, Nvidia 6600 GT gfx card, and only 512 megs of RAM. The music is Sidology Ep 2: Trinity, By Machinae Supremacy. This Linux install was SuSE 10.1 and I now use Sabayon Linux. Which you can get here: www.sabayonlinux.org Three versions include Mini CD install, Full x86 32bit install and Full x86 64bit install DVDs! The theme is a custom theme; which unfortunately I lost when my main hardrive died on me. However, you can get the wallpaper I used from my box.net account here: www.box.net A few other cool backgrounds here: www.box.net www.box.net The original backgrounds I downloaded from www.caedes.net; a great site which has many many more awesome backgrounds. The cubecaps are from art.gnome.org. Go here for ‘Powered by Free Software’ cubecap (this one was downscaled from the original using gimp to 1280×1024 to work with my res) art.gnome.org and here for ‘Linux – Rided The Wave’ cubecap. art.gnome.org The skydome can be found here. It, along with several of the others below, I made myself by splicing a mirrored version of the original and modifying it slightly so the two sides don’t appear as perfect replicas of each other. www.box.net A couple other cool skydomes: www.box.net www.box.net www.box.net enjoy 😀
These Linux, Mac & PC ads are great!
Novell Marketing Video for Linux playing on the popular Mac vs PC videos. What is Linux? See: en.wikipedia.org Some points for Linux off the top of my head: – Free (as in speech). I have the freedom to tweak the system as I wish. – DRM Free – Superior method of software updates, installation – Solid stability (servers I run have been up for 1+yrs, my desktop 1+ month) – Can scale down to very old/obscure hardware (I have a Linux file server running an old 266, 24MB ram – Virtually Spyware/Virus free – Variety of system tools not available in Windows. Extensive programming interface. – Very cool eye-candy ahead of other Operating systems. Youtube search “compiz”, see the upcoming KDE, see the current version of Gnome. – I know exactly what my computer is doing. Can’t say the same thing with Windows, OS X – Although I agree gaming is lacking, I personally don’t game on PC but what I do see is the amazing benefit of being able to have access to the thousands of OSS packages out there. – Luxury of using technology backed up by contributions and usage by companies such as IBM, HP, Sun, Google, many governments, military orgs, NASA, universities, super computer research. Outside the desktop Windows presence is not the greatest. – Constant updates to all my software. You can choose to run cutting edge or run stable. – Ability to decide what to install and what not to (can’t say the same thing about XP) – Freedom of not depending on one single vendor.

twitter.com – facebook.com – My thoughts on Ubuntu… hah! I think it’s a Linux distro. I don’t have any issues with the operating system. As far as Linux distros go, it’s likely the easiest to use.

A parody of the Apple Mac vs. PC advertisements. It’s a Novell advertisement.
