geekzone.co.nz: A recent thread in our Geekzone discussion forums illustrated a couple of interesting points about the way Linux proponents talk about their favourite OS and about the way other (non-Linux) users tend to react to this. This is about perception and also about an apparent disconnect between those two user groups.
freesoftwaremagazine.com/blogs: I just saw my first Christmas lights a few days ago. Do you know what that means? It brings a very special time: decorating your GNU/Linux-based PC.

Richard Koman: Today the effort moved to the world of consumer sales and philanthropy, as OLPC’s Give 1, Get 1 program launched. And it appears that by the end of day the website was saying there were only 12 days left in the sale. That’s confusing because OLPC has said there will be no limit.
linuxmovement: So a little while ago I made my first webrunner app. Webrunner was a program used to bring web applications to the desktop. It was very confusing and not all that easy for the average user. Recently Webrunner has now become Prism. The initila code for Prism is being taken from webrunner. So I decide to use webrunner again and noticed they update the code a bit, and now the files are actually called Prism and its extremely easy to use.
arstechnica: Skype has released a new beta version for Linux that finally adds long-awaited support for video chat, the single most requested feature for Skype on Linux. The Skype 2.0 beta, which is available for download from Skype's web site, includes a number of other minor feature improvements in addition to the new video functionality.
arstechnica: The latest version of Fedora—codenamed Werewolf—was released last week. According to statistics released this morning by Red Hat, Fedora 8 has been already been installed over 54,000 times in only four days.
polishlinux: PDF documents are at present the most popular form of distributing documents throughout the Internet and a presentation tool at the same time. They owe their popularity not only to well defined standard embracing text, pictures and hyperlinks, but foremost to the fact that once created they can be read under nearly every operating system and its underlying platform. Of course, to open a PDF document one has to have an appropriate application.
softwarebattle.com: I’ve been using Ubuntu for some time now, and it’s really grown on me. At first, I booted into Vista more often than not, but since the release of 7.10, I’ve noticed a lot of major changes–most of them for the better.
blogs.techtarget.com: For some time now Linux has been the dominate operating system in high performance computing. For everything from IBM, with its rockstar status supercomputer Blue Gene, to NEC or U.S. HPC players SGI and HP–the bulk of the leading HPC clusters today are Linux-based.
cybernetnews: As expected Google released their Android Software Development Kit (SDK) today. It provides all of the tools needed to start creating applications that run on the next generation mobile operating system, and Google is getting their checkbooks out to help ensure that Android won’t be a flop…
I was glancing through the top searches for my site and noticed one string I thought I'd try to answer it. That search was openSUSE vs Ubuntu. Now, I've avoided formally comparing Ubuntu to other distros such as openSUSE or Mandriva before because in my book it's like comparing apples to oranges, but for the sake of those searching, I will try.
opseast.wordpress: It’s been a whole year since the ground-breaking Novell-Microsoft Collaboration Agreement was signed and announced. Despite the noise in the press, MANY customers have decided to take advantage of the many benefits that the agreement brings to the table. Here’s a list of all 46 of the customers.

smspillaz.wordpress: So, being bored as I usually am, I decided to fix my installation of KDE 4 and try out KWin 4 with Composite bling. Unfortunately, after beta 2, it appeared that openGL based desktop Compositing broke for most people but I managed to get XRender output working.
iTWire: One of the most curious things about Linux distributions is the markedly different way in which one or the other behaves when it comes to installation. This has been brought home to me over the past week as I've been trying to get a Fedora Core installation sorted out.

Fabrice Facorat: Since I upgrade my auth and file server from 2007.0 to 2008.0, I noticed severals issues with my NFS server. Indeed, at one time, my client will just hang when accessing the NFS server.
roy's: OK, a few people have been saying that Gentoo is falling apart, they will leave Gentoo too and the world will end as we know it. I can assure you that this is all lies.
phoronix: Back in March we had compared the performance of Ubuntu and Fedora as we tested Ubuntu 6.10 and Fedora 6 along with development versions of Ubuntu 7.04 and Fedora 7. During those benchmarks, Ubuntu 7.04 Alpha 5 had a slight lead over Fedora but the race was extremely close. Now with the release of Fedora 8 last week, we have run a new set of benchmarks comparing it to the month-old Ubuntu 7.10.
opensourcelearning.info: DesktopBSD uses the KDE desktop and since that desktop has the reputation of being a paradise for the customizer I started the task of fine tuning my desktop with an optimistic mindset.
