earthweb.com: I'm an old-school horsepower junkie. Brute acceleration when I push down on a gas pedal, monster trucks, and triple-engine-blown alcohol tractor pulling all rank way up there in the cool department, as far as I'm concerned. Oddly, I have the same addiction with laptop hardware.
linuxplanet.com: Power and space saving computers are in, and Shuttle has a winner with the XS29F. This little gem really skimps on the power consumption. The size is right, too.

blogs.computerworld: Like it or lump it, the major reason that determines whether any given online story will get read or not is how much play it gets on news link sharing sites and social networks like Digg, reddit, and StumbleUpon. That sounds like democracy in its most basic form, but in practice what it really means that stories can be buried from sight by abusive users with an ax to grind.
linuxgeeksunited.blogspot: I am really liking what I see in the "Linux for schools" category. I am curious though, what about the other people in the school that may not be teachers or students?
latimes.com: Farrah Fawcett, who soared to fame as a national sex symbol in the late 1970s on television's campy "Charlie's Angels" and in a swimsuit poster that showcased her feathery mane and made her a generation's favorite pinup, died today. She was 62.
Low-cost, energy-efficient Userful Multiplier desktops running on Novell’s SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop have transformed the way SASSA officials capture and process social grant applications in rural South Africa.
makeuseof.com: Sharing files on a network generally requires some amount of configuration, know-how and time. Things get even geekier when you have different machines running different operating systems.
h-online.com: Just over two weeks after the release of Linux 2.6.30, Linus Torvalds has released 2.6.31-rc1, the first release candidate of Linux 2.6.31.

sherman-on-security.blogspot: One of the pleasures of Linux is that you can try out different distributions to see which one works best for you. Some worthwhile distributions, however, don't get as much attention as they deserve. So, here's my list of five great distributions that you might want to try.
oneclicklinux.com: In my last blog post an anonymous reader asked a friendly question in the comments area, "What took you so long? PCLinuxOS isn't exactly a well kept secret..."
softpedia.com: Though only four months passed since the previous release, Ultimate Edition 2.2 was a highly anticipated upgrade by fans all over the world, especially for the fact that it would almost certainly use the Ubuntu 9.04 (Jaunty Jackalope) base.
This tutorial shows how to combine four single storage servers (running Debian Lenny) to one large storage server (distributed storage) with GlusterFS. The client system (Debian Lenny as well) will be able to access the storage as if it was a local filesystem.
linuxfud.wordpress: While going through some old notes, I was reminded that there once existed a website dedicated to explaining the differences between Unix and Windows NT.
linuxloop.com: Tony Mobily published an article in Free Software Magazine discussing software installation, specifically end-user software installation, on Linux, which he calls broken. I agree that the system is flawed, but it is not broken.
