tectonic: The Ubuntu desktop may look a little brown and boring to first-time Linux users but beneath that conservative skin lurks a powerhouse of desktop features just waiting to come out, if you are using Compiz Fusion. Here we look at five of the better Compiz features that actually make us more productive as well as looking good.
raiden's realm: Welcome to part 2 of our short series on exploring the /bin directory. Today we'll be looking at another set of tools that are useful to you, including the ever well known and commonly used pwd.
onlamp/blog: The stereotype of the computer programmer with Aspergers Syndrome is overblown, although many programmers have the feeling their people skills haven’t kept up with their technical mastery. How does free software development work so well, then?

linux.com: Do you have some mundane task that you have to do regularly through a Web browser? Are you a developer who wants to automatically test the interface of your latest Web application? Maybe you want to log into all of the sites you visit on a daily basis with one click. If you fall into any of these categories, you should check out the iMacros Firefox extension.
abhay-techzone.blogspot: In KDE4 they have changed the KControlCenter and named it System Settings. I found it to be easy to navigate and very intuitive. Lets start the visual review.
ruminations: Another day at the control center. I am impressed with the scope of tasks that can be executed via one tool. Earlier I mentioned Webmin and the control center shares quite a few characteristics with that tool (though the functions are different, of course). Let’s continue digging deeper.
OSWeekly: Recently the BBC had a bit of a wake up call regarding numbers and how many Linux users were really out there. Why does any of this matter?
mozillalinks.org: Synovel Techologies has released Spicebird 0.4, the first public release of its open source Mozilla-based personal information manager that integrates Thunderbird, Lightning and XMPP to deliver email, calendaring, instant messaging and other communication tools on a single product.

beranger.org: Released on Jan. 8, DARKSTAR Linux 2008.1 is still difficult to download, as the server is overwhelmed. This torrent might be your best choice. I initially downloaded the DVD image in the night of Jan. 10 to 11, using the torrent. I have however only tried it yesterday.
downloadsquad.com: First, a little experiment. What are the first three applications you think of when someone mentions text editors? If you can only answer Notepad, Notepad and Notepad, there's help for you yet.

Frederik's Blog: This week-end, I tested Mandriva Cooker 2008.1 KDE. The procedure was the same as last week: a default KDE network installation via my local FTP mirror (only main) in a Virtualbox virtual machine. Here are the issues I noticed. I submitted the most important ones to Bugzilla.
iTWire: Possibly reflecting increased supply of its popular subnotebook, Asus has announced the Eee PC will be available through mass-market outlets.
Also: ASUS Eee PC goes on sale almost everywhere Down Under
PolishLinux: I don’t like Slackware. No, please! Do not stone me right away! Slackware is a very good operating system. It’s just not “compatible” with my nature. If one would like to select reasonable software, have it installed, then configure it carefully, and finally burned it as a LiveCD… Yes… and have the logo of a green clover added just for luck… Wow, that’d be something!
LinuxInsider: The project repeatedly hit snags. Unforeseen production costs nearly doubled the projected price of $100 per machine, hindering poor nations from purchasing it. A Nigerian-owned, Massachusetts-based firm, Lagos Analysis, is suing the foundation for copyright infringement of its laptop keyboard design.
merlinsminute.com: Realizing that this in no way will cause masses to defect to Linux, my intentions here again are to show that there is a definite advantage in running Linux over Windows especially these days.
beyondart.wordpress: That is Mint’s slogan and in my opinion it suits them well. Mint was my very first experience with Linux. I installed it from a DVD found in Linux Format Magazine. I was so enthralled with Linux that I started searching for other distros - maybe something even better.
