Penguin Pete: I guess I'll make a Christmas tradition out of posting links to online game sites that I've found enjoyable this year. Shuffle - Nice little board game where you hit opponent's balls off the board while trying to keep your own on the board. The computer plays against you, and it's surprisingly strategic.
arun-prabha.com: I got the Maxtor OneTouch4 500 GB external hard drive during the Thanksgiving deal. Maxtor uses it's own software to access/backup files from/to the external drive.
watchingthenet.com: It's time to get away from your Computer and Internet problems (Ho Ho Ho, hopefully Santa fixed you Computer today!) and enjoy these great Computer parodies of 'The Night Before Christmas'.
iTWire: Five days ago, three members of the free and open source software community finally heaved a sigh of relief and wiped the sweat from their brows after winning a battle they had waged for years.
thetechandcents.com: I just read a post by Lucas Nussbaum, where he complains about the fact, that there are some Ubuntu deviations, which have different names. I find this irrational.
readthisaloud.wordpress: Ok, this time I’ll show you how to make one of these bad boys, an animated banner logo. The first one is actually a bit trickier as it involves a lot more layers than the other one, but I’ll explain that later.
blogs.sun.com: My 71 year-old father has agreed to try Ubuntu on his home PC. He has used Windows for years, but after his XP system became so infected with viruses and other malware that I needed to wipe his system, he's willing to try Linux. I've promised I'll reload XP if this experiment fails.
crunchgear.com: So you’re ready to try Linux but you don’t have a DVD burner or the ability to download large files. What’s a body to do? Well, you can try the Zonbu notebook, a fairly inexpensive Everex laptop with 1.5GHz VIA C7-M and 512MB and 60GB of hard drive space and running Zonbu OS, a Gentoo Linux variant with a full set of open source productivity and gaming apps.
phoronix: In 2005 we started our annual AYiR (A Year in Review) articles for looking at the progress of the proprietary ATI and NVIDIA Linux display drivers over time (NVIDIA 2005, NVIDIA 2006). Now in our third year of doing this, it's time to see how NVIDIA's binary driver has panned out over the past year.
rutsum.blogspot: Now that I'm back on PCLinuxOS, I feel a lot more comfortable with my PC, and my productivity (if I do something productive, that is) has increased 10 folds, as compared to Windows XP, and just about a billion times if compared to Ubuntu Gutsy Gibbon.
iTWire: Jacinta Richardson is one woman who admits to definitely being a geek. But that hasn't got in the way of her being the organiser of the only non-geek event of the 2008 Australian national Linux conference - Open Day.

weblog.infoworld: It's old news now that longtime Red Hat CEO Matthew Szulik is resigning the CEO position and has appointed the former COO from Delta Airlines Jim Whitehurst. However, I've long suspected that Szulik wanted out.
justuber.com: Anyone who has installed an Ubuntu desktop system recently, can’t have failed to realise that Flash is broken, and it’s broken quite badly.
linux-gamers.net: In many forums linux users complain about an odd and nagging bug in the actual NVIDIA gpu driver: While 169.04 BETA worked fine, after installing 169.07 the fan of the graphics board stays at max speed (and max noise) all the time.
the inquirer: XP IS GETTING a bit long in the tooth, Vista is a pig and you don't want to buy a Mac and join the Jobs Cult. So, you're thinking of having a look at Linux, but are bamboozled by the hundreds of flavours and don't want to spend a weekend discussing it with disturbingly intense bearded men in socks and sandals. So here is the Inquirer's guide to Linux: quick, clear, opinionated and unfair.
afifplc.blogspot: My first experience with Linux was 8 years ago, a few years after my Dad bought me my first ever computer. The first Linux OS that I tried was RedHat Linux. Back then I didn't know much about computers. So after a few tries I gave up and decided to stick to Windows until now.
jjesse.wordpress: There has been a lot of discussion in regards to what exactly going on with the next version of Kubuntu 8.04, the Hardy Heron. I am a little disappointed to find out the 8.04 will not be a long term release for Kubuntu due to the nature of KDE4 being released.
nowwhatthe.blogspot: I wrote about the performance of KDE 4 some time ago, and I'd like to revisit it. Now it's possible to have it clean and fast, and I did indeed see an increase in performance when trying it.
linux.com: Joomla!, a popular content management system (CMS) for Web portals, is easy to install and maintain, and has thousands of components, modules, and Mambots for almost every thinkable function a Web site could possibly need. Here are a few extensions that I find indispensable.
