This week’s edition of WIG is filled with news link coverage on topics such as Microsoft has confirmed that ‘Blue’ will be free for existing Windows 8 users, Firefox 21 has added support for new services via its Social API, malicious Chrome and Firefox extensions that hijack Facebook profiles have been found, and more.

They should place a "Browser selection" application, as Microsoft was forced.

I'm very disappointed to read that the Week In Geek articles will be discontinued. Honestly enough I actually look forward to the posts every weekend. I basically treat them as my geeky sunday morning news paper.
Sad to see it go

We might replace it with something similar. The fact is that not enough people read the column to spend all that time putting it together.

It would definitely be interesting to see which one people chose during installation if such a 'selection ballot' were included!

High praise indeed. ^_^
As the Geek has said, reader interest in the weekly post has fallen off versus the amount of work that goes into each post. It was simply time to let it go...

R.I.P. Week in Geek. You were my only source of tech news.

It doesn't matter what a distro has as "default apps" on an install. I install what I want, even if I have to compile from source code.

i have my list of apps i like, i try them in every distro even knowing they won't work. the only one i ever seem to have trouble with is truecrypt downloaded from their sight. i get the error "it doesn't seem to be a .tar" package or something. i've even crashed xubuntu removing their aps and installing mine. need to work on that one
