Submission + - Ron Paul Wants To End Federal Student Loans (boston.com) 4

The_THOMAS writes: Rand Paul wants to end Federal student loans stating that the Government involvement artificially inflates the cost of a college education and that once the government is out of the situation, students will be able to work their way to a college degree. What do you think? Also, how many students on /. consider themselves Libertarians AND have Federal student loans and how do you rationalize that?

Submission + - Ask Slashdot: Linux Laptops? 5

conner_bw writes: I'm an OSX user looking to switch to a Linux laptop. I like the Unix/BSD aspect of OSX. Simple things like when I close the lid the laptop goes to sleep, the sound card works out of the box, long battery life, minimum cooling fan noise, and a comprehensive but relatively straightforward backup system and "AppleCare" package are important to me. What all-inclusive model of laptop and distro would you recommend?
