O'Reilly Radar: I've been doing a little prep for my keynote at Ubuntu Live next week. In the course of my homework, I took a look at the various web tracking sites to see how Ubuntu is doing against sites for other Linux distributions. Here's how Ubuntu, Red Hat, Debian, Fedora, and OpenSuse stack up in terms of site visitors according to Compete.com, Hitwise, and Google Trends.
polishlinux: I’ve already written two Pardus reviews — 2007 Beta 2 and 2007.1. So it’s time for a review of 2007.2 Caracal release. In this article I will focus on the key changes and my personal thoughts concerning this interesting distribution.
Another day of lotsa links not used, but not ruled out:
Linux In Novell’s East Region: There are many great new features in the SP1 release SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop and Server. The purpose of this article is to outline the methods available to upgrade from the FCS release of SUSE Linux Enterprise to SP1
kernelTRAP: The recently merged Completely Fair Scheduler changes how the Linux kernel handles scheduling priorities set with the nice command. Ingo Molnar explained that each level of nice adds or substracts 10% of CPU utilization, "the '10% effect' is relative and cumulative.
C|Net Blogs: We should look for another version of Windows in about five years. And while I agree there should be another version of Windows and Office, I will disagree with the business model. Forget about paying a couple hundred dollars for an operating system that is riddled with problems, the next version of Windows should be open source!
iTWire: The last time I looked at Slackware was nearly seven years ago; version 7.1 was thrown my way by a magazine and I was asked for a review. My usage of the distribution had ended early in 2000 when I moved to Debian after using Slackware 4.0 and then 7.0 for about a year.
information week: Microsoft says software that's licensed under GPLv3 is not covered by the patent protection deal it recently signed with desktop Linux distributor Linspire.
effiejayx’s blog: I have seen tons and tons of screenshots of Ubuntu screenshots on the web. So I decided to set up this little evolution for the Ubuntu desktops…
Also: ubuntu installation
Dana Blankenhorn: Intel has a new mobile Linux project dubbed Moblin (right). Sounds great until you realize there are a ton of other, similar frameworks under development. Nokia backs Maemo, Trolltech has Qtopia, and you’ll remember we profiled OpenMoko just a week ago. So what gives?
Also: Intel's Mobile Linux Initiative Misses Vendor Mark?
Linux Update: Fedora 8 is currently under development and is scheduled for release in November of this year (2007). This is a quick overview of the proposed features. As these are proposed features and it is still about 4 months from release some of these will change.
LinuxWorld: Forget software politics for a minute -- what does the new Samba licensing mean for the version you're actually running, and for the distribution that packages it for you? Samba maintainer Jeremy Allison explains.
gnomedesktop.org: The GnuCash development team proudly announces GnuCash 2.2.0, the new stable release of the GnuCash Open Source Accounting Software. With this new release series, GnuCash is available on Microsoft Windows for the first time, and it also runs on GNU/Linux, *BSD, Solaris and Mac OSX.
linux-watch: There's been no major improvements in Dell's Linux software support, but there have been small, but handy, improvements in Dell's support offerings. For Dell Ubuntu laptop users, an important addition is the availability of the Conexant modem driver for the Inspiron E1505n and 1420n.
Isotype: I have made a simple standard-dvd-video with a custom basic menu, using only free software on Ubuntu (Feisty) for pc i386. Ubuntu is a free operating system that, differently from Windows and MacOS has no licensing costs. Let’s make a comparison:
ubuntu-tutorials.com: Recently I’ve been on a GPG kick and have been interested in collecting, signing and using the GPG system more and more. One limitation that I was surprised to find in KGPG is that of the “Export Public Key : To Email” option.
Matt Asay: Roy Russo wonders if all open source companies are de facto monopolistic. Like many others that I respect (Dave Rosenberg, Lonn Johnston, President Bush, Oscar the Grouch), Roy believes that any market only has (ultimate) room for one purveyor of free (as in software).
FOSSwire: Hard drives are fragile and complex devices that do not have an infinite life span. Modern hard drives can however tell you quite a bit about how they’re doing and show you some statistics about themselves.
howtogeek: Let's say you have a directory with hundreds of files with the wrong file names, and you'd like to replace every filename containing test with prod. We can easily do this with the "for" command in bash.
oneopensource.it: Q: Does Linux infinge Microsoft patents? A: As far as we know, the answer is a resounding “no”, and it’s all just MS trying to counter-act the fact that they have problems competing with Linux on a technical side by trying to spread FUD.
