Linux [Format] Ready For The Desktop

Postby Erin » Thu Aug 18, 2005 1:06 pm

Dear World,

Who says Linux [format] is not ready for the desktop? Here it is with a waffle iron Mini-ITX based PC here.

Is this the open-source answer to Bill's dream of Windows for Toasters ?

Judging by the October LXF which came through my letterbox this morning, Linux Format is definitely not ready for the desktop.

Mine was mullered by the Royal [sic] Mail. Who do we complain to? Do we let LXF know, if so who, so they can give the RM grief or who do we contact on the RM?

As an aside, can the DVDs be fixed longways up the magazine to stop those wonderful posties twisting the mag to force it through a bog standard letter box?

Cheers, Erin
