ericsbinaryworld.com/blog: It’s time once again for a Linux distro review. This month, Antix 7.5 was included on the LXF DVD. It’s another light distro, so I will use the same metrics I used in the Lightweight Linux Throwdown. Antix is based upon Mepis which is, in turn, based upon Debian.
arstechnica.com: A new release of the venerable GNU Image Manipulation Program (GIMP) is now available for download. Version 2.6 offers a variety of new features, user interface improvements, and is also the first release to include support for the Generic Graphics Library (GEGL), a powerful, graph-based image editing framework.
gdickinson.co.uk: I’ve been a Red Hat Linux user for years. As soon as my chosen hardware arrived–a Dell Optiplex 755–I popped in the Fedora 9 DVD, and installed the OS. It happened that at the time, one of my colleagues’ laptops needed to boot to a usable OS. Rather than create a Fedora 9 boot disk, he went with Ubuntu, and reported ATI drivers which worked out-of-the-box.
tech.blorge.com: The browser debate continues, as a shift in market share for all the “big guys” continues to hold strong. While Internet Explorer still accounts for over 70% of worldwide browser usage, its market share continues to take a nose dive now that steady competition from the likes of Safari and Chrome are looming.
hightechsorcery.com: The ext3 filesystem supports write barriers which are designed to allow a filesystem to take advantage of a disk’s write cache without fear of compromising the ingetrity of the filesystem on a power failure or kernel panic. I’ve seen reports that ext3 write barriers have a significant impact on performance.
The new TASK_KILLABLE feature is generally an improvement over the existing options—after all, it is another way to keep from getting stuck with dead processes.
ivan.fomentgroup.org/blog: I have seen the proposals to replace the default Kickoff menu with Lancelot on a quite a few places now, the latest triggered me to write my stance on the subject.
Also: KDE 4's artwork is really a giant leap forward on all fronts
blog.linuxtoday: Because of Linux I hardly have to lift a finger anymore, and because of it my health is suffering. I rarely hop up and down in a fit of temper, I don't have to drive to the store to buy software, and I don't get the aerobic benefits of spending hours on the phone with tech support, breathing hard and accelerating my heartbeat.
blogs.computerworld.com: I'm not sure why the silly notion that "Only .10068% of Linux kernel developers are paid" keeps circulating, but it does. So, let me just say, once and for all, Linux is written, for the most part, by paid software engineers and programmers from major American corporations.
smallbusinesscomputing.com: It seems that every year is supposed to be "the year" for Linux, but nobody ever manages to define what "the year" really means. You can find statistics on Linux adoption from a variety of research firms but all seem skewed to represent whatever agenda that firm is pushing-whether that is Linux adoption rising, falling, or stagnating.
blogs.techrepublic.com: Does Linux have what it takes to meet the needs of the corporate desktop? Jack Wallen thinks so. Here’s his list of office apps that can handle everything from word processing to project management to data backups.
opera.com: We now have an RC so please look out for any regressions since 9.52. Changes include Fixed error pages when entering unknown protocol, Fixed an issue where custom search engines would not get a favicon, and Fixed an issue where text with specified size suddenly disappears on Qt4 builds.
snuxoll.com: I left openSUSE 3 years ago, and for good reason, it sucked. It was buggy, bloated, slow, and horribly unfriendly to use. So let's skip ahead 3 years to the present, openSUSE 11.0 is out and I'm ready to forgive past mistakes and give them another shot.
groklaw.net: I'm thinking that we need a few fun classes on the Bill of Rights to the US Constitution. No. Really. If you'll try to pay attention, I'll try to make it enjoyable.
itpro.co.uk: Documenting the development of open source software is key to keeping it easy to use, but some disagree on its necessity. More often than not, documentation is an afterthought, and is what happens when the interesting bits of a software project are over and done.
don-guitar.com: A couple of weeks ago I made a deal with Susan Linton of tuxmachines.org. Lisa and I will write a two part article on why we're using Linux and why we've chosen the distros we use in return for having Susan write the Linux section of our ezine for one (possibly two) issues.
junauza.com: After recommending those excellent real-time strategy (RTS) games for Linux, let's move on to this other type of strategic gaming referred to as turn-based.
insanelyabsurd.com/blog: We’re all pretty familiar with the how popular Ubuntu has become since it first started, but believe it or not there are actually still some people out there who choose to instead bash it because their distro flat out sucks. I’m not going to go into any of the names of the distro’s.
