Why I Love Linux

... ever since I got my Macbook and have been using OS X, my life feels a little different. Just last week, I had to pay for software, and this made me feel a bit uncomfortable. No, I don't steal software licenses -- I've been using Linux for the past two years and got used to just downloading free and open source software.

I won't try and convince you that Linux is something you should try. I've had many of these discussions and the fact that we promote it through Five Minutes to Midnight is enough for me.

Instead, I'll just say this: setting up an FTP server on Ubuntu is so easy it makes me smile. In fact, I set up two today, just for kicks. Thank you, ProFTPd, for making my file transferring easier today.

I'm Susan, of the TechnoSnack's team and I wish to inform you that we are opening a new blog aggregator about Computers & Internet news.
We put it on-line some hours ago and the link is:

The main objective of this project is creation of a "virtual dashboard" of posts coming from many specialized blog and information about Computers & Internet world, with news about Linux, Windows, Mac, Open sources, Security, Graphics, Symbian and more on...

The key feature is that news come directly from blogosphere. We wish to show a preview of posts, with a link "Read more..." to signed blogs. If users are interested in news, they are redirected to your blog and can read entire post directly from your blog!

So, the different signed blogs can increase their visibility and reach more visitors, all over the world!

We think that in a little of time it can send more visitors to re gistered blogs, contributing to diffusion of know-how about Computer and Technology world.

I visited your blog and I think it has very interesting and useful posts!

So, are you interested in this idea, with your blog?
If yes, then you can register your blog, using the specific "Registration Form"!


The only thing we ask to you is to insert TechnoSNACK banner in your blog to promote this project. Or, if you prefer, you can insert a link in your blogroll.

If you like (we whould be happy, but it is not mandatory :-), you can write a post regarding TechnoSNACK project in your blog, to promote this idea.
