My favorite distro, PCLinuxOS, had just released early this week its long anticipated 2007 version. Linux.com has one of the early reviews.
Meanwhile, DSWD Bicol is set to adopt this distro. Cool.
This site provides free (as in Freedom) ‘executables’ that make it easy to sew your own soft-toy Tux — the Linux penguin. They have sewing patterns and a community to sew your own soft toy or stuffed Tux.

IEs4Linux is already a few months old, but I’ve just come across it just recently. Previously, I’m running IE6 by using winetools on wine20050524. This time, with the advent of Wine 0.9x, somebody made the effort of creating a script for installing multiple IEs on Wine. Works with PCLinuxOS with Wine 0.91, though with some small problems initially.
