I have this acer laptop with Mandriva 2008 on it that I got for the price of a few beers a few years back. I'd like to use it for simple things (running IDEs, reading PDFs and a few more things), but I can't get into it. it prompts me to enter a user name and a password, neither of which I know. is there any way i can get into it anyways? it has a disk drive, USB sockets, all that good stuff if your solution requires that sort of thing. there's really nothing wrong with it, i just …

My "[URL="http://www.daniweb.com/news/story229382.html"]10 Best Linux Distributions of 2009[/URL]" list drew a bit of disdain from some of my readers, so I thought I'd make it up to them by posting a list of Linux distributions that [I]they[/I] like to use. Since I have no way of knowing which of these distributions is better or worse than the others, I've place them in alphabetical order instead of any real ranking based on quality, community, development cycle or other criteria. I want to show you, faithful reader, that I do indeed read your comments and take your feedback seriously. You have a voice …

As I've written before ([URL="http://www.daniweb.com/blogs/entry2335.html"]here[/URL] and [URL="http://www.daniweb.com/blogs/entry4177.html"]here[/URL]), the Linux desktop in danger of extinction. If operating systems could be placed on the Endangered Species list, I'd lobby for it. Perhaps this is a legitmate task for the [URL="http://www.linuxfoundation.org"]Linux Foundation[/URL]: Preserve the Linux desktop. I'm not quite ready to give up on Linux as a Desktop operating system--though I feel that I'm in the minority on this topic that grows mootier by the day. I think there's still a glimmer of hope in the unlikeliest of places: [URL="http://www.linux-mag.com/id/7181"]Schools[/URL]. I know it might sound crazy but it's true. Schools are notoriously cash …
