bmc blogs: An old friend here at the office was working late, and I was there working on IT360/Linuxworld. He dropped by my designated work area, and we got to talking about Linux. He was asking (in essence) why I like Linux. The reason he was asking was that he had tried to install SUSE as his first Linux.
ITtoolbox blogs: In this series I am going to be travelling around the /etc directory on a linux installation and explaining what some of those cryptically named files do. In these cases I will be using Kubuntu/Ubuntu as an example but the files I will explain will generally be present in all distributions. The first file I will cover is the "inittab" file.
the jerusalem post: While Linux is an alternative to Windows, it is not cheap Windows. Linux has its own strengths, and users should want it because of those strengths and not because it's a cheap copy of Windows."
Free Software Mag: When considering moving a Small to Mid-size Business (SMB) client over to GNU/Linux or talking to someone who is considering the same, there frequently is a “but” somewhere during the process. The hesitation is one that is rarely talked about, or one that I have rarely heard; the lack of specialized applications from Independent Software Vendors.
internetnews.com: Sun Microsystems today will announce it's released a fully buildable Java Development Kit (JDK) for Java Platform Standard Edition (Java SE) under the GNU General Public License (GPL) version 2. Sun is planning a formal announcement today at its JavaOne conference in San Francisco.
eWeek: Ubuntu 7.04—also known as Feisty Fawn—shines for its excellent software management tools and large catalog of ready-to-install free software applications.
nbc11.com: The trial of computer programmer Hans Reiser on charges that he murdered his wife Nina Reiser was delayed for three weeks today because his lawyer is busy with another case.
Forbes: Dell became a hero to Linux fans worldwide when it announced last week that it would begin selling PCs loaded with the Linux operating system instead of Microsoft's Windows. But a week later Dell may have blown that good will away.
Seopher: I wrote on New Years day that 2006 was not a lost year for Linux and most people happily agreed. It's May now so we've had a third of the year so how has the situation progressed? Well, it's all good news.
LinuxPlanet: The 2.6 Linux kernel has been one amazing roller-coaster ride of excellent new features and changes coming faster than you can say "git along now, little patchies." Hardware detection and management, and removable media management are probably the most obvious changes to users.
LinuxJournal: If you have a nifty macro or a nice Writer template you want to share with other OpenOffice.org users, publishing them on the Web along with detailed installation instructions is probably not the best way to go. Fortunately, OpenOffice.org supports extensions-small installable packages that provide added functionality.
After several delays, the Gentoo Release Engineering team is proud to announce the release of Gentoo Linux 2007.0, code named "Secret Sauce".

nixcraft: If you’re serious about music or DVDs, at some point you cross the threshold of having more than you can keep track of easily. The box full of index cards has served its purpose; it’s time to move on to storing information about your CDs and DVDs in a database.
Raiden's Realm: Welcome to part 6 of our series on the KDE 3.5 Control Center. Today we'll be covering the Power Control section of the Control Center. This area is most important to laptop users.
Dana Blankenhorn: The use of lawyers to go after open source frontally, with copyright and patents, has not worked, so many in the open source community are under the mistaken impression that the war is over and they won.
Linux.com: One of the great features of the current version of OpenOffice.org is the support for extensions, which allow you to add to the office suite's functionality. Every day this week we'll look some of the most useful OOo extensions available. Today, we'll look at ways you can improve the way the office suite handles templates and AutoText.
TuxDelux: On the Novell website, there is a page dedicated to the company's Distinguished Engineers. One of these is Michael Meeks. Daniel James met him just prior to the announcement of the Novell/Microsoft agreement, and opened the interview with his favourite opening question to any free software hacker...
How-to-Geek: Ubuntu has an option for adding a Trash Can icon to the desktop, which might be a comfort for those of you migrating from Windows.
Pegnuin Pete: It's all well and good that Adobe did get the Flash plug-in for Firefox/Linux going, but what we don't (and perhaps will never) have is an Adobe-supported way to create Flash animations on a Linux box.
