linux.com: Nautilus, the official file manager for the GNOME desktop, can help you perform tasks from browsing the filesystem to accessing Samba shares on your local network or FTP sites on the Internet -- and more. Here are a couple of tips and tools that will allow you to open a terminal window from Nautilus and resize and rotate images without opening any other program.
the inquirer: BEING A BIT OF A GEEK can surely bring you a bit of extra notice in some circles. Not so strange then when about this time last week, a local educator for one of the language programmes rang us up. Her IBM Stinkpad had gone to sing with the choir invisible. Would not boot from the HD.
xubuntu.wordpress.com: Over the past week I helped my sister switch over from Ubuntu to Xubuntu. She had reasons for doing so: she wanted something faster, preferred Thunar over Nautilus, and just wanted it looking nicer. Here’s what impressed her the most:
kernelTRAP: "After posting some benchmarks involving cfs, I got some feedback, so I decided to do a follow-up that'll hopefully fill in the gaps many people wanted to see filled," Rob Hussey began.
Available for download now, OpenOffice.org 2.3 incorporates an extensive array of new features and enhancements to all its core components, and protects users from newly discovered security vulnerabilities. It is a major release and all users should download it.
As you may have noticed, DistroWatch.com is now back up. The attack continues, but Ladislav was able to bring the site back online after ruthless DDOS attacks rendered the site inaccessible for much of the weekend.
linux.com: Russia may have bowed out of the Cold War, but with the release of ALT Linux Personal Desktop 4.0, Russia has become a contender in the Linux arms race. Equipped with KDE 3.5.7, OpenOffice.org, Firefox, a modern infrastructure, and good multimedia support, ALT Linux is a potential weapon of mass adoption.
grumpymole: I have played around with screenlets. Very nice, but nothing functional enough to grab me. But, AWN is something that looks good and I find very useful.
kmandla.wordpress.com: A couple of years ago, when I was just getting started with Linux, I tried Slackware and managed to get a chunky old laptop online with a wireless network card. I wanted Slack to work this time too, but it didn’t happen that way.
c|net blogs: The European Union's Court of First Instance handed Microsoft a major defeat on Monday, slapping down the software maker's appeal in three significant areas of the historic antitrust case brought by the European Commission.

arun.wordpress.com: After sticking with OpenSuSE for a long time (read 2 years), I finally got one of the bleeding edge distros: Arch Linux. Oh and the answers to Why?
Raiden's Realm: A few weeks back I wrote a post on my blog page about this topic, and put some questions to my readers to know what everybody thought about it. I received a number of good responses.
ruminations: On day 9 i tried my hand at KMail. It wasn’t bad, but it wasn’t overwhelming either. Having used Thunderbird for quite some time (with a small collection of extensions) it appeared a bit bare. KMail is a lot faster to load though and that is a boon when you are running everything in a virtual box.
This article shows how you can install and use PDFedit on an Ubuntu Feisty Fawn desktop. PDFedit is a free and open-source editor for manipulating PDF documents.
ExtremeTech: It shouldn't come as any surprise that the first major release in over five years of the most popular desktop environment available is causing quite a stir. Due to be released on December 11th, KDE 4.0 is bringing exhilarating graphical, usability, and functionality improvements to the Unix-like systems it is designed for—and Windows users will get a taste, too.
iTWire: In the past, ITWire has been less than flattering over Microsoft’s OpenXML document format. Microsoft expressed disappointment at our views and said “a better story” would have been the positive benefits OpenXML can bring the interoperability between different operating systems.
FreeSoftware Mag: Fast, small, lightweight—and still a full-featured GNU/Linux: Puppy Linux combines a complete set of applications with great flexibility, yet it requires minimal hardware. This article introduces this increasingly popular GNU/Linux distribution.
In this week's KDE Commit-Digest: Continued work in Plasma, including a KMLDonkey data engine, a RSS data engine and news feed applet, and a Virtual Desktop switcher applet. More interface work for Amarok 2.0, with progress on alternate music service integration.
