Linux Corner

Intro :

Commentators are Greg Jetter (aktrapper) and William Raymon (Buzz).

Please  take a moment  to  let Joe and the  gang know where your interest in Linux  lies. As  Linux is a Very large topic and we  want to focus in on issues that  you listeners  would like more information about. I and Buzz both could talk about  Linux all day long if allowed.

The state of Desktop Linux :

some links :



The Linux desktop has evolved , it's getting better and better each day , that  is what happens when you got thousand of  programmers working on a  program .

E-mail ., web browsing ,  writing a  document or  creating a spreadsheet, you cant beat Linux ,  Linux provides the basic services most people want.

Is there too much choice in Linux and is that a bad thing or a good thing?

Some Desk top  Linux distro  that specialise in user friendly/windows type of desk tops

Freespire ,
Freespire 1.0 is Linspire's free Linux distribution. It was originally a Debian-based desktop Linux operating system

A good starting point is the website : , contains a list of popular distros that  strive to  present a  easy to use  desktop.

Computing Stuff:

What is Cloud Computing ?

this is what wikapeida says
Some successful cloud architectures have little or no centralized infrastructure or billing systems whatsoever, including peer-to-peer networks such as BitTorrent and Skype, and volunteer computing such as SETI@home.

So  Cloud computing basically is  a peer to peer   type of service.
Because cloud computing does not allow users to physically possess the storage of their data (the exception being the possibility that data can be backed up to a user-owned storage device, such as a USB flash drive or hard disk) it does leave responsibility of data storage and control in the hands of the provider.
