debian-administration: Many people here use GNU Screen, and I've not seen extensive coverage of the things you can do with the status-line in the past, so I thought a brief overview of a couple of visual settings wouldn't be amiss.

iTWire: As many of us who watch the Linux market know, the past week has seen the announcement of two markedly different plug-and-play Linux computers. I was excited by one and not the other. To my surprise, the one that didn't interest me has taken off like a rocket to the moon while it is still too early say how the other will do. The good news, however, is that desktop Linux has finally gone mainstream.
tectonic: The problem is that modern laptops often have very aggressive power setups by default to, theoretically, guard against damage and reduce power consumption. But in doing so they may cause your disk drive to load/unload at more regular intervals than is reasonable.
martin.ankerl.com: I have been using Ubuntu for quite a while now, but one thing I really dislike is that all the themes are huge space wasters compared to Windows XP. This finally got me angry enough to create a customized version of the Clearlooks theme.

linux-tip.net: NoMachine NX is a Terminal Server and remote access solution based on a comprising set of enterprise class open source technologies. NX makes it possible to run any graphical application on any operating system across any network connection at incredible speed.

techtarget.com: Device drivers can make or break an operating system. The best engineered kernel is useless if applications running on it cannot interface with the outside world or if device manufacturers cannot readily support it with their wares.
nytimes: If the effort succeeds, it will be the most drastic challenge to date of the assertion by Microsoft — the godfather of the desktop PC — that Google and other members of the so-called open-source world can imitate but not innovate.
bangkok post: Firefox is known as the quintessential free browser. Users can not only download it free of charge, they can also expand its abilities in almost unlimited ways. A dedicated developer community makes this possible by programming and updating special extensions called add-ons.
interopnews.com: Why does Red Hat tolerate CentOS? The Community ENTerprise Operating System is an identical binary clone of Red Hat Enterprise Linux (minus the trademarks), compiled from the source code RPMs that Red Hat conveniently provides on its FTP site. It is also completely free, as in beer.
eWeeks blogs: At the heart of the rift between the Foundation and the rest of the ODF backers--led by Sun and IBM--lies a dispute over the proper strategy for achieving round-trip document fidelity between Microsoft Office and ODF-consuming applications, such as Sun's OpenOffice.org or IBM's Lotus Symphony.
FOSSwire: Remembering things. It’s something that a lot of us aren’t all that good at, without having something to trigger us. KAlarm is an application which is designed to allow you to set certain things to happen at certain times.
polishlinux: You already know Pacman, the Archlinux software manager. Now it’s time to meet AUR and yaourt, the extra tools that can bring a fistful of apps on your desktop within just a few console commands.
iTWire: After several weeks of anguish I've finally recreated my Windows XP file backup regime under Gutsy Gibbon, overcoming my fear of the Linux command line in the process.
anurag.acespace.co.uk: Although I wasn't the first one to download the latest version of openSuSE, I was still one of the first to do so, believe me. SuSE was the first Linux distribution that I used to fix my roots in the Linux world. So, I've an attachment with this flavor of Linux in particular. But I won't be partial in this review, not even a bit. I'll present my review on Novell's openSuSE 10.3 in an easy-to-understand manner, that is, topic-wise:
the inquirer: Microsoft is complaining that "the Linux desktop including OpenOffice" infringes some 235 Microsoft patents. An objective comparison between the whole Linux desktop and Microsoft's Windows desktop shows that it has a good point; there are many resemblances, from trivial to profound.
technocrat.net: Duke Nukem Forever and Linux on the desktop... To understand the markets you have to know something about magicians, and how they work.
phoronix: This past Friday we had delivered benchmarks comparing the performance of the open-source Radeon driver against the new closed-source fglrx driver from AMD. In addition to these Compiz benchmarks, on the same system we had also ran some additional benchmarks to see for gaming and 2D rendering how the two ATI Linux drivers compare.
ruminations: Let’s continue with software management. I expected to wake up with a completely updated system, ready to receive further instructions in order to become a fully usable open source desktop. What I got was a system that had halted at 75%. Various updates hadn’t finished successfully. Today I spend most of my time playing with that.
