Downloadable Mandrake == Adware

Mandrake has started a new program in which ads will be placed in the installer, bookmarks, and screensavers in the downloadable version of Mandrake Linux 9.2. Apparently they felt that the company was not in enough financial trouble. If they want to make sure that fewer Linux users use their distro, this is a great way to do it. Thanks Slashdot.

Linux and USB Flash Drives

ExtremeTech posted a little HOWTO, showing how to use those USB flash drives with Linux. Actually, it was much easier than I thought it was going to be. I was debating buying such a drive that Best Buy had on sale a few weeks ago. I didn't want to get anything and then wonder if it would work with Linux. No fear, apparently.
