I keep looking for new uses for GNU/Linux but searching is difficult. There are so many uses and it is hard to pick one out to discuss. For example, today, I typed in “linux” to the Google search window and chose past 24hours and order by date. Almost every minute of the day has one or more entries… Popular finds are
- job ads
- forum posts
The first 260 hits just gets me into the third hour.
Here are some gems:
- Gnome3 â€“ Slow death of the linux desktop, a rant on the way GNOME is going…
- Linux: We’re All In This Together, Right?, a rant on civility in forums about operating systems.
- Any LInux operating system for sale, an ad for GNU/Linux CDs in Bangalore, India.
- Linux Operations Team Leader, an ad for a GNU/Linux guy for Â£75000 per annum + Bonus and Benefits
- , yet another desktop image for GNU/Linux
- Dell Vostro 2520 Laptop (3rd Gen Ci5/ 4GB/ 500GB/ Linux), an ad for a notebook with “Linux” being the first “key feature”…
- www.linuxexpres.cz a GNU/Linux magazine that recommends OpenOffice.cz and Mandriva GNU/Linux.
- Linux MAO, a French site for musicians using GNU/Linux
- X-system not for Linux, a review of a digital camera system that has a RAW file format not open to GNU/Linux. The file-format wars are alive and well in digital cameradom apparently.
That’s just a sample from the first 4 hours. Imagine the goodies that are in that search. This little experiment shows the ubiquity of GNU/Linux in every part of the world in any time-zone on any subject in IT.
