Submission + - Free slogan anyone?

stoomart writes: The other day, one of my fellow IT workers (who loves M$ so much you'd think they're putting his kids through college) asked me why I liked Linux and other free software so much, to which I replied "If it's not free, it's not worth paying for". Enjoy

Submission + - Dell offering Ubuntu XPS, featured on front page

stoomart writes: When going to www.dell.com today, I was surprised to see their Ubuntu product line staring at me. After clicking on the link, another surprise was that they are now offering an XPS 410 N with Ubuntu.

This is very cool to me because it seems that they are actively trying to validate their other products to run Ubuntu. Hopefully this leads to a choice between MS Windows and Ubuntu when choosing any product.

Submission + - Suggestions for Linux-friendly digital camcorder?

stoomart writes: I've never had a camcorder before but now that my wife and I have a new baby girl, I want to start capturing her life in digital videos along with the mass of digital pictures we already have.

Here are the only criteria I'm looking for.

- Able to directly connect via USB or Firewire (preferably USB but not required)
- Use non-optical storage (flash or hard drive)
- Be compatible with Linux/OSS
- I would like to stay around or under $300

For everything else, I'm up for suggestions.

Thanks, Stoo
