bloggernews.net: So now I have a collection: My US DVD’s, my VCD that need an Asian codec to run, and your computer will only let you play one country. I also have a few downloaded films from Google or other libraries. My grandson told me the way to get around this.
thestar.com: Music fans and video gamers alike can rock out – for free – with a clever Guitar Hero clone downloadable for your Windows, Mac or Linux-based PC.
linux.com: I recently received a new MacBook Pro running Mac OS X 10.4 from our corporate headquarters. The choice of platform was deliberate, driven by professional requirements for applications not available on Linux. To see how others felt, I asked a local LUG mailing list:
the inquirer: TWO VERSIONS of a truly open Linux mobile phone, the Neo, have gone on web sale in the US, made by FIC of Taiwan.
searchenterpriselinux: Everyone in the IT industry is concerned with security, especially Linux administrators. In this article, I will either introduce you into iptables for your first time, or help you become more efficient with iptables if you've worked with them in the past.
Linux Online: Alexander Wolfe has left his den again and given us his latest anti-Linux piece. Of course, when you read his piece, he reveals his reason for thinking about it in this way. It's more about fear than any other thing.
kernelTRAP: The Xen virtual machine monitor was recently merged into the upcoming 2.6.23 Linux kernel in a series of patches from Jeremy Fitzhardinge. The project was originally started as a research project at the University of Cambridge, and has been repeatedly discussed as a merge candidate for the mainline Linux kernel.
Ken Hardin: As I kick the tires further on the GNOME desktop and applications, I’ll be doing so with one key question in mind: Would this result in a call to the help desk from a typical Windows user? If the answer is yes, that’s a bad thing.
desktoplinux: The Pyro project has launched its "Pyro Desktop," a new Linux application with the lofty goal of "true integration between the Web and modern desktop computing." Pyro offers an interesting new approach to deploying Web-based applications on the Linux desktop, reminiscent of Opera's and Vista's widgets.
freesoftware mag blogs: If you’re a GNOME user I expect you’re more than familiar with the panels that come as standard with your desktop; if you use openSUSE you’re probably also familiar with the slab menu that Novell have developed. There are, however, several other applications out there that can extend and beautify your Gnome panels.
Linux Today: For quite a few pundits out there, the fact that there are so many Linux distributions is a bit troubling to them. I am not sure why this argument keeps coming up, but it goes something like this: there are X Linux distros out there, which is too many to choose from for users, and creates a strain on developer resources.
linux.com: Battle for Wesnoth is an amazingly addictive 2-D turn-based strategy game with some role playing game elements thrown in for spice. It runs under Linux, Windows, and Mac OS X. Wesnoth can be played solo, using one of the several single-player adventures (campaigns) available, or over the Internet with other people.
At Opera we truly want to make the best browser. We would like to know which features you want us to add to make your Opera experience even better. We will be doing this using blog tagging.
FOSSwire: A nice short and sweet command line tip today and it’s to do with finding out information about the version of the kernel you’re running. You might be asked for this information if you are asking for help somewhere or you might be messing around with your kernel.
desktoplinux: Wal-Mart will sell a sub-$300 "back-to-school" PC this fall pre-loaded with Microsoft Windows Vista and OpenOffice.org productivity software. The Everex GC3502 PC is based on a 1.7GHz Via C7-D processor, and will be available later this year preloaded with Ubuntu Linux.
wired blogs: There are two big open-source software gatherings happening over the next week, as both Ubuntu Live and O'Reilly OSCON descend upon the Oregon Convention Center in Portland (which even has a moat!).
junocake: The initial plan was to create a RAID-0 array (striping for performance), re-install Debian, copy all data, and remove the older drives for noise and heat reasons. With two of them PATA drives, they could stay in the system easily copy straight to the new array.
desktoplinux: On July 5, Microsoft quietly released a "Covenant to Customers" to clear up how it is handling its patent deal with Linux distributor Linspire. Instead, it did little but puzzle and annoy members of the Linux community.
Reuters: Nigerian schoolchildren who received laptops from a U.S. aid organization have used them to explore pornographic sites on the Internet.
