I love this magazine and look forward to it every month. John Knights comments on why piracy hurts open source software are so appropriate and needed. Nicholas Petreley is absolutely correct on how we should let manufacturers know why we are buying someone elses product. Michael J. Hammel is correct in saying "Hogwash" to those who say that GIMP is too hard for scrapbookers to use. My wife is a professional scrapbooker who runs on Windows and was looking to purchase a photo editing package in the $100 to $500 price range. I convinced her to let me load GIMP so that she could see what features and options she would need the most in a commercial package and she found it so easy to use that she would not change now if you paid her! Several of her customers are now using GIMP as well. If we can use GIMP, Open Office Org and other such packages to introduce windows users to how good open source software is, we can slowly turn the tide.

congratulations!

I wish to extend my congratulations on achieving this milestone for TUX Magazine. I have enjoyed reading all three issues thus far, and I am really looking forward to many more in the future. :)

I recently added Linspire Five-0 on my DFI-based desktop system (on a separate HD) and I am now dual booting with Linspire and Windows XP Pro. Works like a charm! After a week of running Linspire, I decided to wipe Windows XP Home Edition off of my HP Pavilion ZV5340US notebook. Also works like a charm! My wife liked Linspire so much, she asked me to wipe the HD on her COMPAQ R3440CA notebook and install it.

The Linspire Linux distribution is what is really needed to push "desktop" Linux to the masses. A lot of computer users, like myself included, are fed up with Microsoft and Apple. Linspire, Inc. also lets you install the OS on any number of computers within your household, unlike Microsoft with their overly paranoid product activation keys. :) I tried Red Hat Linux a couple of years ago, and I really did not like it that much. Linspire has changed all of that thinking regarding Linux... Thanks Linspire! :)
