This is an overview of five essential add-ons which every Firefox user should take a look at.
planet-geek.com: I've been using Ubuntu Intrepid Ibex as my desktop platform of choice for a few months now. As part of that changeover, I also switched to Gnome. I have to say, after my initial "ohh, look, this just works" with Gnome, the shine has certainly come off.
smashingmagazine.com: GIMP is the favorite graphics editing program of many designers and graphic artists. It has a wide array of features, as well as plug-ins, filters and brushes. Documentation is primarily available in online communities, as well as through extensive add-ons.
kabatology.com: In the browser war, I switch my browsers according to my needs. When it comes to social networking in general and Facebook in particular, I give it up to Flock.
workswithu.com: I don’t keep regular backups. If the hard drive in my laptop was to fail I’d have a serious problem. I would be faced with the very real risk of losing weeks, maybe even months worth of work. What I need is a backup solution.
makeuseof.com: To have or not to have a dock in Linux is really dependent on individual preferences. While popular Linux distros such as Ubuntu and Fedora do not come with a dock by default, there are plenty around.
rudd-o.com: Amarok 2 is regrettably worse than unusable (it actually causes data loss) for people coming from Amarok 1. Worst part is, Fedora ships it as "stable" software since its tenth release.
tuxarena.blogspot: Next is an overview of the best audio players available in Linux. I will only review the GUI players, leaving tools like mp3blaster, mpg123 or ogg123 for some other time. To begin with...
arstechnica.com: The Fedora project has announced the availability of the Fedora 11 beta release. Fedora 11 includes several compelling new features such as support for kernel modesetting, Ext4 by default, and faster boot time.

"I'm a Mac" ... "I'm a PC" ... "We're Linux" ... Why???
itwire.com: The idea that Microsoft would buy Novell isn't exactly that far-fetched. Events on April 1 have proved this.
dedoimedo.com: When someone asks you to name a small Linux distro, under 100MB, names like Puppy and Damn Small Linux come to mind. Now, the featherweight category has another candidate, a 25MB fighter called Slitaz.
raiden.net: MoonOS is one of those elegant distros, where it focuses a lot on eyecandy and looking good. And it definitely has a lot of good things to look at. Sorta like something that comes by and catches your eye in a way that nothing else can.
zdnet.com.au: After first being discussed at the GUADEC conference back in July last year, the GNOME project is moving forward on its plans for GNOME 3.0, with a new user interface planned.
junauza.com: As some of you may know, Linux is not the only Unix-like operating system available. For my own reference and for those who are also interested to try BSD, I've listed five BSD distros that are considered by many as the best:
news.cnet.com: If you've ever struggled to play a file you downloaded from the hinterlands of the Web, you clearly didn't try opening it with VideoLan's VLC media player, a free, hugely popular, and open-source media player.
The Hungarian government will issue a tender within days for 12 billion forints, which is the same amount they can spend on Microsoft products, to acquire open source software. Read More Here
