beranger.org: Now that GoblinX 2.6 RC1 is out and that Caraibes suggested that I should try it, well... I tried it. And this reminded me why I decided to drop it after having tried GoblinX 2.5 RC1 "Mini" sometime in October.

geekzone.co.nz: I think this is a temporary offer only, and I don't have many more details than what is in the product page, but it looks like Acer is making a limited laptop series available now with Ubuntu Linux pre-loaded.
junauza.blogspot: File sharing typically follows the P2P model, where the files are stored on and served by personal computers of the users. Generally, people who engage in file sharing on the Internet both give (upload) files and receive files (download). There are plenty of excellent free/open-source P2P file sharing software available today. Here’s my list:
earthweb.com: How do you produce a major update of a popular desktop for GNU/Linux? Following the release of KDE 4.0 last week, I talked with Wade Olson, the press contact for KDE in North America, and a member of KDE e.V., the German non-profit organization that is the financial and legal arm of the project.
Also: KDE 4.0.0 release rocks the Linux world
opensource.org: I just read an excellent summary of the top 10 SE Linux stories of 2007, and it reminds me that I owe the world a blog posting about the amazing vision and accomplishments of the SE Linux project.
kernelTRAP: Michael Meeuwisse started Project VGA in September of 2007. The project aims to develop a simple, low budget, open source, VGA compatible video card available this year. In this interview, Michael explains his inspiration for the project and talks about the first development cards that will be functional by the end of the month.
computerworld.com.au: Lead artist from Elephants Dream speaks about what it is like to make your own open movie using open source tools and the power of the community.
ruminations: I am enjoying these days with the control center, but it’s time to wrap it up and move on. There are plenty of other things that need attention.
Glyn Moody: We have found our hedgehog concept. It is enterprise Linux and enterprise management as the two key areas required to bring together the open source world and the world of proprietary software.
This morning Christina Fullam states that it was decided just before Christmas to cancel the 2007.1 release and roll all the effort into Gentoo 2008.0 since there was little possibility of getting a well-tested 2007.1 release out before 2008. In other posts the status of Gentoo Foundation and the weekly newsletter were discussed.

desktoplinux.com: I remember when getting a decent PC would set you back at least a grand. Then it was $500. Now, it's $150!? That's the story that small vendor LinFX wants you to buy along with its PC with pre-installed Linux.
opensuse-announce (Adrian Schröter): I am sorry to inform you that we have currently a bigger hardware failure of the raid system, which provides the content of ftp.opensuse.org and stage.opensuse.org.

From an user's perspective, it makes sense to only review 3 or 4 parts of KDE 4 and complain about them, and ignore all the other brilliant pieces of work in there, right?
