blog.abhishekonline: I wanted to post some screen shots of a kernel compilation, but they have to wait. I did not learn computer science in college or school, it all comes to me due to experimentation, doing mistakes, correcting them and learning from Google. So this post is written from the point of view of a newbie.
bushweed.blogspot: It's no secret that i'm a Linux user. Most of my blog traffic is to Linux related pages. But what makes someone prefer Linux over Windows or Mac? I've debated this with colleagues on many occasions, and there is no clear answer, but there are many outcomes of these debates.
junauza.com: There's no doubt that some people have become a Linux user after seeing a video of Compiz Fusion in action on YouTube or wherever. During the first few days or weeks, sure they will enjoy the experience of having an extraordinary desktop that they can show off to their Vista-using friends. However,
This is a detailed description about how to set up a Fedora 10 server that offers all services needed by ISPs and hosters: Apache web server (SSL-capable) with PHP5/Ruby/Python, Postfix mail server with SMTP-AUTH and TLS, BIND DNS server, Proftpd FTP server, MySQL server, Dovecot POP3/IMAP, Quota, Firewall, etc.
tuxgeek.me: I recently stumbled upon MEPIS Linux (pronounced ‘meh-pis’ — similar to “memphis”), and was pleasantly surprised by how easy it was to pick up and use. I’ve decided to share my experiences with the latest beta of the upcoming MEPIS 8.
thevarguy.com: Attention Ubuntu Linux shoppers: Dell in newspapers today advertised Inspiron Mini 9 netbooks running Ubuntu for the bargain basement starting price of $299. Even The VAR Guy is opening his wallet and buying one.
linuxloop.com: Somewhat unsurprisingly, profanity is a lot more common in open source than in closed source software. Also not surprisingly, some people find it offensive.
happyassassin.net: Well, I was rather expecting this after reading Vincent’s blog this morning, but I have been told that as of December 31st, I’ll no longer be working for Mandriva, as all external contractors are being canned.
lifehacker.com: Dear free software developers: Before we American nerds sit down to our turkey and mashed potatoes today, know that your creations are at the top of the list of things we're most thankful for.
dedoimedo.com: This article is a summary of my four-hour experience with Open Solaris 2008.05. How was it? Well, in one word: good. In two words: NOT good.
opensuse.org: The openSUSE Project is happy to announce that openSUSE 11.1 RC 1 is now available. If all goes well, this will be the last testing release before the final 11.1 public release on December 18th.

linsec.ca/blog: As of December 31st, my contract with Mandriva will be terminated and I will no longer be working for Mandriva. We’ve got a new CEO now, and he’s determined there is to be no remote contractors, and as a result I’ve been booted from the camp.
itwire.com: In short, IBM isn’t scared of Linux, neither is Novell. Oddly, neither is Microsoft, after-all, they actually sell it.
