I have written another review of Blag, this time of 50k.

You can read it there. Please feel free to post comments if you see something out of line, if something needs to be corrected, or if you liked the review.

If anyone feels inclined to do so, please submit the article to news web sites.


Thanks.

It was good, but I'd prefer a more traditional review. Still, it shed plenty of light into blag50k. :) Just my opinion though.

Thanks,
Stephen Clement

I was in a weird mood, and I thought I'd try something a little different. Glad you liked it, though.

yeah, it's a good review... it has a different feel to it, and it's a good change after reading the (sam old) technical reviews...

I liked it. It was weirder to read (different) but got the job done.

I thought it was good, considering the folks that don't appreciate the rationale behind free software. BLAG is just one of a handfull of distros that are 100% free on the CD and in the repositary.

Also it's nice to have a "non-technical" or geeky review. Not every one wants to know what compiler is included. How do I play music, write reports and browse the net? That was all covered nice and simply.

Actually I couldn't. I received a "Page Not Found" error. :^(

Yeah, sorry about that. I was threatened numerous times about my weblog, people telling me that I was stealing content, which was not true.

They spooked me enough to make me pull my site. Sorry about that. I'll have a "real" review of Blag 50001 up as my next post.

No worries. Check the Google caches to see the "old" 50,000 review.

My site is back up, anyways. FREE SPEECH!!!

Yeah, I liked the review because many of the Qs are what lots of people ask and they were answered in a clear no technical manner.

It was differnt and good.....just like Blag ;)
