the dot: We received many great submissions from community members with very different backgrounds from around the globe. In the end, with generous approval from KDE e.V. Vice President and Treasurer Cornelius Schumacher, we have decided to fly out two contestants:
pinheiro: Vlad from http://www.vladstudio.com was one of the contestants to enter the great oxygen wallpaper contest, and one of his submitted wallpapers got in.
phoronix: With its lime green theme, the appearance of Foresight 2.0 Alpha 1 is certainly distinct from most other desktop Linux distributions. However, it's color theme is not all that's unique about this new development release.
ruminations: Just like real candy. If you have to prepare the candy from scratch, you loose you appetite along the way. How easy is it to change the look-N-feel of the KDE desktop?
liquidat: Smolt, the distribution independent hardware data collection tool reached another mile stone: it passed the 200.000 entries mark. Almost all machines are still Fedora machines by now since other distributions haven’t picked up the tool - yet.
iTWire: As I've mentioned in previous articles I currently have all the applications I need on my Ubuntu Linux desktop so I never need to use Windows. However, there are unfortunately still plenty of applications that some users need which are not available under Linux and have no equivalent. Luckily for those users there are at least three options that will allow them to run the software they need.
softpedia: Although Fedora 8 just got released, the developers are thinking about the features which are going to be included in the next release, Fedora 9. There are no approved features yet, but the community is working on providing material for developers to choose from.
linux.com: Damn Small Linux is tiny Linux distribution that John Andrews originally created in 2002 to see just how many applications could fit into a 50MB system. The project has grown over the years to include many other contributors working on hundreds of packages and applications. Last month's release of DSL 4.0 brought many updates and changes, yet it remains a special-purpose distribution for older hardware because it lacks support for many modern features.
o'reilly onlamp: I went down to the Cambridge, Massachusetts lab of One Laptop Per Child today to find out what they’re doing with mesh networks. A One Laptop Per Child system has limited value on its own. Its most innovative and powerful features lie in its participation in a mesh network with other laptops. So get your neighbors and workmates to buy them too!
Carla Schroder: Last week we looked at Ubuntu Server's documentation, discussed hardware requirements, tried to figure out what sets Ubuntu Server apart from Ubuntu Desktop. We're taking such a deep dive into the very bowels of Ubuntu Server that this is expanding into a three-parter, so hold on to your hats and enjoy the ride.
popularmechanics.com: To give a little something to the rest of our geeky readers out there, we’re also posting its operating system on the Popular Mechanics Web site for free. We received permission from Ubuntu to dress up the OS with a Popular Mechanics skin and post it on our site.

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.
