PCLinuxOS Magazine, January 2008 (Issue 17) is available to download. Some highlights include Common Information Commands, How to repair kdeinit problems, and It's Magic!
techtarget.com: New Linux tools and updates kept IT security hacks at bay in 2007. That said, new problems -- such as security risks in virtual machines -- cropped up last year. Here's my round-up of the big Linux security events, software releases and controversies that cropped up in 2007.
Aaron Seigo: Now that 4.0.0 is tagged and out and that bit of worry and concern is behind me for the moment, I wanted to take a moment to talk really bluntly about 4.0. In particular, I'm going to address some of the common memes in fairly random order that i see about kde 3.5 and 4.0. I'm going to speak bluntly (though not rudely) so prepare yourself
linuxsolutions.fr: Linux is a very well known operating system for the computer. This operating system lies on the Unix family and it can be said that LINUX is graphical user interface or GUI version of the Unix.
Matt Asay: I wasn't very nice to Jim Whitehurst when I heard the news that he had been named the new CEO of Red Hat. What could a Delta Air Lines COO have to teach about open source? Plenty, it turns out.

wired blog: Our favorite almost-there media player, Songbird, has reached another milestone with version 0.4 and a new push to port your favorite Firefox extensions over to Songbird.
terminally-incoherent: This is the first real post in the in my immersive WoW review. I know that there are countless reviews of this game out there, but this one is mine.
linux.com: Many Linux distributions try to be visually appealing. Some use Beryl-Compiz for cool 3-D effects on resource-laden boxes, while others turn to desktops like Enligtenment for a little bit of gloss at the expense of functionality. Geubuntu is a new distro that combines the best of those two worlds, equipping Enlightenment with bits from GNOME and Xfce on top of Ubuntu.
ruminationsonthedigitalrealm: I have used the GNOME desktop for most of the time in the last year and a half, but the series about PC-BSD and DesktopBSD did a lot to build up appreciation for the KDE desktop. PCLinuxOS is running the KDE 3.5.8 desktop (after updates) and let’s see how it is organized and what applications are delivered by default.
arstechnica.com: Vast legions of open-source software enthusiasts and industry analysts eagerly proclaim every twelve months that the elusive Year of the Linux Desktop is finally upon us. Although these prophecies have obviously yet to be fulfilled, the open-source OS is rapidly gaining immense traction in the mobile and embedded space.
computerworld.com: Intel's resignation from the One Laptop Per Child Project's board of directors will have "no impact" on the group's operations, since the chip maker contributed little to the project since joining last year, OLPC President Walter Bender said in an interview.
Also: Is OLPC in trouble?
linux.com: You might imagine that a utility as simple as a multiple clipboard would have become standard on the GNU/Linux desktop. Although at least six multiple clipboards are available, choosing which to use is a matter of trade-offs that depends partly on your desktop environment and partly on which features you want.
tectonic.co.za: Mark Shuttleworth, founder and head of Canonical, the company backing Ubuntu Linux, has been named among the top ten people to watch in 2008 by online publication TechWeb.
c|net blogs: It didn't take long after installing Canonical Ltd.'s Ubuntu 7.10 version of Linux for me to decide I liked what I saw. A quick tour of the Applications, Places, and System menus indicated that converting from Windows to Linux would be relatively seemless. The only fly in the ointment was my inability to get any of three wireless adapters to work with the OS.
forum.mandriva.com: I had a somewhat difficult time getting Mandriva 2008 to work on my HP dv6113us, and given the lack of posts regarding this particular laptop series (despite its popularity), I figured I'd document what steps I took to get a FULLY FUNCTIONING Mandriva install.
maketecheasier.com: Firefox is a great browser that you can easily customize to suit your browsing needs. I have compiled my list of the 12 best Firefox add-ons below:
dedoimedo.com: If you are a beginner Linux user looking for a simple, friendly distribution, you might want to look at Linux Mint. In this article, I'll demonstrate the classic GUI installation, but also a few things more. It should not be boring.
