stormyscorner.com: First off, there is no ideal company/community relationship. There are lots of different types of relationships between companies and the communities they work with (or don't work with) - and no one way is perfect for everyone.
community.zdnet: I get to hear about the biggest threat to Microsoft's hegemony and market dominance quite a bit. It often goes something like this: "Linux isn't Microsoft's biggest threat, Google is."
crn.com: There's one major decision that hits potential netbook buyers right up front: if the netbook is the system of choice, do they want a system based on Microsoft Windows XP Home or would they rather go the open-source route with a netbook based on Linux?
rg03.wordpress: Some days ago I started a new small project called halrv. It is a very simple Python script that allows you to manage removable volumes from the command line using HAL.
technichristian.net: Having always been a Debian person at heart, I eagerly awaited the latest Debian version to hit the mirrors. When Lenny was released, I downloaded the DVD ISO through torrent and installed it.
blogs.zdnet.com: When will enterprises get serious about contributing to open source projects run by others?
refresh.co.za: Having worked with the system a bit here and there, and now for a few hours today, I’ve truly seen the power and potential of using an Ubuntu system.
workswithu.com: An Ubuntu user published a piece on his blog last week about using .desktop files to deliver malware under Gnome and KDE. But in a world where Linux market share remains negligible, do these flaws translate to a decline in the actual (rather than theoretical) security of a desktop Linux system?
ostatic.com/blog: Ramesh Natarajan is giving out free copies of his ebook, Linux 101 Hacks. Though it targets a more experienced audience than the Ubuntu Pocket Guide and Reference download Sam covered last month, it looks like a handy reference.
I am a great fan of the Gutenberg project, a noteworthy and honorable effort to digitize copyright-free texts. This project has released into the public domain over 20,000 classic books. This article will explain how to integrate this huge body of material with the Ubuntu desktop.
tuxdeluxe.org: People have always made music. Once human beings had computers available, software became just like music. People create software the same way they create music. They really do. You don't do it because you get paid for it. You do it because it's fun. Samba is the equivalent of a garage band that made it big.
raiden.net: Do you know what I love so much about Linux? It's the feeling you get when you stumble upon a distribution that's pure computing gold.
earthweb.com: How much did your computer cost? $500? $1,000? $2,000? How much has it cost you since you bought it? The price of a computer is not a one-time expense — it is rather, an ongoing one. How much you pay for your computer over a year's time, or the entire lifetime of the computer, depends greatly on your choice of operating system.
linuxplanet.com: How many Linux users are there really? It's a darn good question, and there isn't a darn good answer. In one way, we're all Linux users now.
phoronix.com: Nearly a year ago we shared that two new PC action games were being ported to Linux. The games were Shadowgrounds and, its sequel, Shadowgrounds: Survivor. Well, last night we finally got our hands on a beta copy of Shadowgrounds: Suvivor for Linux.
indusbusinessjournal.com: The browser war between Microsoft and Mozilla came to an end in 2001 when Microsoft released Internet Explorer 6. Now it appears that the browser war is back, but this time it is different. There are five major browsers.
maximumpc.com: These days, most people have at least one computer and a large collection of media files. The conventional practice for most people has always been to have redundant copies of their media collection on their various computers. While this system technically works, it is highly inefficient.
aronzak.wordpress: A recent article, How to write a Linux virus in 5 easy steps outlines a vulnerability in KDE and gnome desktops. Unfortunately, the article suffers from a few simple problems:
celettu.wordpress: I did find some quite irritating issues yesterday, when I installed KDE 4.2 the first time. People have pointed out that KDE can hardly be blamed for the difference in looks between GTK and Qt applications, which is true, but the result is still ugly.
