for February 9, 2009 is out. "The netbook market is not
just limited to the Eee PC any more, now every major manufacturer has a
netbook of some description. The software arena hasn't stood still either
with many custom distributions having been created to accommodate these
little machines. Intel sponsors the Moblin project which has just released
a new alpha, and we take it for a test run. In the news section, the
creator of Puppy Linux explains his new project called Woof, Mandriva
finalises the structure for their new Assembly, things heat up in BSD land
with new releases on the way, the unofficial Fedora FAQ provides updates to
version 10, Fedora causes a stir after disabling the popular 'kill X'
feature, and a new online Slackware package finder is made public. Also in
this issue are links to two interviews - the first with a KDE developer and
the second with the creator of Xfce.
