Linux has come a long way since we saw that first shell prompt, even if we still love using the command line. Now we have GUI desktops with stunning graphics and a multitude of GUI applications.
If you thought you had only two GUI desktop choices, you need to read our article on Xfce. If you're a GNOME user, learn how to use your desktop more efficiently with GNOME Do. Or, are you looking for a browser alternative for your desktop? If so, read our review of three alternative browsers (alternatives to Firefox, of course).
And, just when you were getting comfy with that desktop, read about Adobe Air on Linux and see how it may make your desktop irrelevant.
