    Yes, osctatic has a lot of reviews and other useful info about open source software, but I consider that is too general to include it in a top 10 linux sites list. Anyway, thank you for the mention.

  13. I see that


    promotes Microsoft products and services, eg:

    “See how Novell and Microsoft are making Windows Server 2008 and SUSE Linux Server Enterprise work better together. Request a Novell/Microsoft Deployment Kit.”

    Flash ads for Microsoft VOIP solutions also appear there.

    I would not give this site any credit as a linux web site.
