Linux ( or ) is a Unix-like computer operating system assembled under the model of free and open source software development and distribution. [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Linux]
XBMC is a cross-platform software available for Linux, Mac OS X, Microsoft Windows operating-system, as well as the original Xbox game-console. I am using it since 2003 on my XBOX
XBMC is currently available for Ubuntu Linux, Mac OS X (Intel-based Leopard and Tiger), Microsoft Windows, and the original (first-generation) Xbox. We are currently at Beta 1 for our upcoming release code named Atlantis. It should be noted that XBMC requires OpenGL 1.4 support, at a minimum, to function. We do however recommend OpenGL 2.0 to fully experience XBMC. Check your graphics drivers to see what version of OpenGL your GPU (graphics processing unit) supports.
Vista/Mac OSX has raised the bar in the area of good looking desktop, but openSUSE is now also able to fight back, just look at the screen shots below for getting an insight in the new openSUSE 11.1:
Upon logging into your openSUSE desktop, you’ll be asked to send some hardware information to the Smolt Project. I like the idea of submitting real hardware profiles to developer so they can really concentrate on real hardware support requirement. In the same area, I would like to see a post mortem process crash agent like in XP/Vista so real statistics can be made and bugs corrected faster...
Debian will powered for sure my next Internet root server, and I am currently giving it a try for my Monster NAS (instead of OpenSuse, Opensuse being still in use on a HP NW9440)
The Debian Project is pleased to announce the official release of Debian GNU/Linux version 5.0 (codenamed Lenny) after 22 months of constant development. With 12 supported computer architectures, more than 23,000 packages built from over 12,000 source packages and 63 languages for the new graphical installer, this release sets new records, once again. Software available in 5.0 includes Linux 2.6.26, KDE 3.5.10, Gnome 2.22.2, X.Org 7.3, OpenOffice.org 2.4.1, GIMP 2.4.7, Iceweasel 3.0.6, Apache 2.2.9, Xen 3.2.1 and GCC 4.3.2. More...
I use the hard way, free but a bit more difficult as it require a rooted device, I personally use “Android Terminal Emulator” with granted root permissions (after typing su a prompt will appear)
su (enter) mount -o rw,remount /system (enter) rm -r /system/app/FILE-NAME-HERE.apk (enter)
This application got installed without my knowledge by a Samsung update as a System App that CANNOT BE UN INSTALLED!
First before I forgot: Go to hell Samsung and Intelligent Apps GmbHIf either of you continue in that direction, installing software without my prior permission, the next update to my Samsung Galaxy S3 will be CyanogenMod 10
Back to the removal of MyTaxi, Samsung did hide taxi.android.client_v2.5.1.apk under the name /system/app/samsung_ch.apk
To remove it
su (enter) mount -o rw,remount /system (enter) rm -r /system/app/samsung_ch.apk (enter)

I have never used or been familiar with a SuSE product before as I've only used Mandrake, Red Hat, and a bit of Debian. After using Red Hat for a while I decided to evaluate SuSE and I am now sorry for not having tried it sooner." more

18/01/2004 "The subtitle of this review could so
easily be 'a tale of two operating systems.' That one of
them is good and the other bad should not be surprising;
that they are both the same operating system might raise
more of an eyebrow." more

Featuring 2.6 Kernel SuSE LINUX 9.1 Personal and SuSE LINUX 9.1 Professional
http://www.madpenguin.org/ First Look at SUSE LINUX 9.1 Professional "With the upcoming release of SUSE Linux 9.1, I thought we'd take a few moments out of the day to look at their Personal release, including the Live CD that comes in the box, which will allow users to take their SUSE Linux desktop anywhere they go and be able to feel right at home on any PC with a CDROM drive. Is it worth the lowered $29.95 price tag? SUSE is a great desktop distro, but will the features stack up? We'll see..." review 1 and review 2
Suse 10 linux I've done right now the migration to Suse linux 10 on 2 computer
Novell has killed the SUSE pro version and now offer:
Note that all 3 versions above share the same source code base (open source kernel and extension developped at www.opensuse.org)
As usual, if You want to try for the first time a linux distribution, I recommend You to try the live DVD version (both 32 bits and 64 bits cpu version is available).
