pocket-lint.co.uk: Inside the Elonex Webbook you get a 10.2-inch screen, 1.6GHz VIA C7-M processor, 80GB hard drive, and 512MB of memory. The Webbook comes with the option of two operating systems - Windows XP or the Ubuntu variant of Linux. We tested the Ubuntu version.
schoollibraryjournal.com: So what is open source software (OSS)? It’s software that is free in every sense of the word: free to download, free to use, and free to view or modify. Most OSS is distributed on the Web and you don’t need to sign a license agreement to use it. In fact, you’re probably using OSS and may not know it.
phoronix.com: For years MythTV has been regarded as the best media center application for the Linux platform and is extremely popular with HTPC enthusiasts. However, MythTV now has a new competitor and that is Boxee. Boxee is a "social media center" that is based upon the Xbox Media Center (XBMC) with versions for Linux, Windows, and MacOS X.
ostatic.com: Israel, where I live, is known for its large number of high-tech startups. But when I moved here in 1995, Linux and the idea of open source software was virtually unknown, even among programmers. It was thus a delight to spend this (Friday) morning with 250-300 other open-source advocates, at the annual "August Penguin" conference.
kmandla.wordpress: I have a problem, and I admit it. Every time someone whines — and yes, I’m using the word “whine” deliberately — about the graphical design in Ubuntu, I tune them out.
osgeex.blogspot: Two weeks ago I bought a Acer Aspire 7220 laptop. Based on a AMD Semphron 3800, Nvidia Geoforce 7000M, 2 GiB DDR2 RAM and a 80 GiB HDD. Everything I could ever wish for is included, except for a webcam.
opensource.org: Michael DeHaan has an excellent post entitled "How Open Source Is Your Open Source?". I dare say it is his best post despite getting in a few (Linux) distro biased comments. He proposes a set of community standards that determine the real health and openness of Open Source. In my opinion, a major problem with OSI at the moment is that it perpetuates (mainly indeliberately) that a mere license makes something Open Source.
pthree.org: “Linux users use Linux because they hate Windows. BSD users use BSD because they love Unix.” I can’t emphasize how true that statement is. I’m subscribe to several mailing lists, I subscribe to hundreds of RSS feeds, I visit forums semi-regularly, I’m on IRC 24/7 in plenty of channels. You want to know what I see?

blog.flameeyes.eu: So everybody says that CMake is great because it’s faster. Of course CMake achieves speed with an approach different from the one autotools have, that is, they don’t discover features, they apply knowledge. Hey it’s a valid method as any other, if you actually know what you are doing, and if you can keep up with variants and all the rest. Another thing that it does is to avoid the re-linking during the install phase.
theinquirer.net: LINUX HAS MADE headway in Microsoft's UK heartland, the PC sales channel. The number of machines shipped with Linux preloaded on them has multiplied a whopping 28 times since Microsoft launched its Vista operating system in January 2007.

itwire.com: A total solar eclipse will begin in northern Canada early Friday morning, and sweep through Greenland, the Arctic, Russia, Mongolia, and China. A partial solar eclipse will be seen in the northeastern parts of North America, and much of Europe and Asia.
redhatmagazine.com: Here’s the final installment of Bill Nottingham’s series based on the talk he gave at this year’s Red Hat Summit. Find out about the latest and greatest Fedora™ developments… and the future of Red Hat® Enterprise Linux® from this experienced engineer.
bmighty.com/blog: When you work online, words are like clothes: Use them carelessly, and you might as well show up for a business meeting in dirty flip-flops and an "I'm with stupid" T-shirt. Fortunately, Firefox makes it easy to spruce up your online "wardrobe" with all sorts of language-enhancing features.
scienceblogs.com: We can assume that Shuttleworth is being optimistic and pro-Linux because he is so invested in it. So I won't write off what he has to say, but we will not be surprised at his exuberance. Vaughan-Nichols bothers to make a comparison between the Mac system and the Linux system and bases his conclusion on that. Sorry, Stevo, but that's dumb.
secretengineer.wordpress: I just installed the Twitter client TweetDeck on my Ubuntu laptop (Fiesty Fawn v. 7.04). In the short time I have played with it, it seems to be working as robustly as my window-based app. The Adobe AIR framework is in alpha for Linux and so it is anyone’s guess what ultimately will happen.
liquidat.wordpress: Recently Daniel Phillips announced that he is developing a new file system, Tux3. It plans to be a modern file system on level with ZFS and the currently also still in development Btrfs.
linux.com: Yesterday I presented Bonnie++ and IOzone benchmarks for a solid state drive in a client machine and discussed the relative merits of purchasing an SSD over a set of hard disks costing the same money. Today I'll look at deploying and taking advantage of the extremely fast seek time of the SSD on a server.
linuxgeeksunited.blogspot: There are certain situations I can agree virtualization can be useful and efficient. It is a concept called "planned obsolescence" and was generally made notorious by AT&T after Ma Bell broke up. The same technological snakeoil is sold by computer and electronics makers today.
