Information Week blog: It's always informative to look at our most heavily trafficked stories to see what topics you're most interested in. No, it's not a scientific survey, but it certainly provides pretty powerful anecdotal evidence of what technologists are currently buzzing about. And judging from our numbers, you're rather obsessed with Linux--Ubuntu Linux, to be precise.
Raiden's Realm: At some point in time, every new user to KDE will find themselves in need of of a way to access at least one, if not several different internet services. KDE comes with a built in selection of some of the most basic internet tools to allow you to do the things you need to do. Here's a short list.
Pimp Your Linux: One of the major things that people request here on Pimpyourlinux is for better fonts on Linux. I’ve done some research on the subject, and it is quite possible to make your Linux Desktop look great, even if you have a flat panel monitor.
rangit.com: Below are 8 addictive 3d games for linux users to fill their time with. These games are really good and some have won awards or have been featured on magazines. Most of it is cross platform and free. You don’t have to use ‘Wine’ to be able to play as they come with Linux installers.
Microsoft Watch: If Microsoft isn't the Evil Empire, what should be? It's the 30th anniversary of Star Wars and easy enough to cast Microsoft as destroyer of the Republic. But what if Microsoft were the Republic?
Linux.com: The lead developer of the Hugin panorama-stitching application, Pablo d'Angelo, has proposed a new open database for collecting camera lens information that could be used to correct systematic distortion in photographs.
Mozilla Links: Firefox has memory issues. It's undeniable. Keep Firefox for a few hours with some 15-20 tabs opened at a time, minding you own business and you will get Firefox to grab up to around 150MB. You may notice this or not depending on how much memory you have.
ONLamp.com: The GNOME Users And Developers European Conference, a major European free software conference is open for registration for its seventh year. O’Reilly Media is a sponsor. The schedule lists a mind-boggling range of projects.

Linux.com: gFTP is a complete, easy-to-use file transfer tool for the Linux desktop. In spite of its name, gFTP can transfer files using more than standard File Transfer Protocol; it provides several features that make it more than just another FTP client.
Free Software Magazine: When we enter the world of “free and open source software”, most of us will choose one or the other philosophy. This choice is usually made easy by the people that guide us when we enter this world. We are at a point where the philosophies behind free software, which have been heralded by Richard M. Stallman and others, are threatened.
Debian-Administration: In our previous introduction to Puppet we covered installing the client and server, such that a small LAN could be configured centrally. Here we'll demonstrate some of the things that can be done with such a setup.
the inquirer: We can remember the times gamedevs were telling us, "DirectX? Us using it? Not in your wildest dreams." "Microsoft's puppet?" And so on and so forth, only to see them changing the tune when DX9 came along and became more a usable API than OpenGL. And now, DX titles are predominant on the market, even with the old-school gamedev teams.
Vincent Danen: I've never really played with Solaris before. I've looked at it once or twice, briefly, but that was about it. The other day I downloaded a vmware image for Nexenta GNU/OpenSolaris, one of these OpenSolaris-based distributions that apparently uses a lot of GNU software.
This article shows how you can configure a Debian Etch system that has the webhosting control panel ISPConfig installed so that ISPConfig can be accessed on port 80. By default ISPConfig uses port 81 which is a non-standard port and is blocked by some firewalls and ISPs. By using Apache's mod_proxy module, we can avoid this problem.
USA Today: But you can also keep those old boxes and make good use of them yourself. You can install Linux, for example.
Planet Cyprix: For the last month (and a bit) I’ve been running Mandriva 2007.1 Spring PowerPack on my Toshiba Satellite 2410. To avoid people having to skip to the conclusion, I’m sticking with Mandriva Linux Spring on my laptop permanently!
grumpymole: If changing kernel boot parameters sound scary, it isn't. None of the boot parameters that I have come across are destructive in any way. The worst result could be that your machine hangs until you restart it.
I, Cringely: Google is an amazing entrepreneurial petri dish. Yet at the same time, it is doomed to disappoint nearly every entrepreneurial type who works there. This is key: Google is sowing the seeds of its own eventual destruction. It can't help doing so.
