reddevil62-techhead.blogspot: IS it OK to be superficial sometimes? The reason I ask is that I was drawn to Granular 1.0, a Linux distribution based on PCLinuxOS.
phoronix.com: Mesa 7.3 was only released a few days back and then the branch for the stabilized Mesa 7.4 created, but new work for Mesa 7.5 has already hit Mesa's Git master branch.
kdedevelopers.org: Using KWin without the KDE desktop is perfectly possible. KWin is actually a KDE application like any other (well, more or less) and so just like other KDE applications it can run in GNOME, Xfce or even standalone, as long as the KDE libraries are available.
blogs.computerworld.com: In a recent story, I wrote about the best three ways to pick up desktop Linux. Many users need more than just a running Linux distribution to get up to speed. What these users need is a good introduction to Linux.
Aaron Aseigo: So apparently Linus is using GNOME right now. On Slashdot, the entire six page interview was boiled down to "Linus Switches From KDE To GNOME". Let me address the "Linus issue."
newlinuxuser.com: If you’re looking around for a good distro to use for your computer, it will probably take you several installs and months of usage (maybe even years!) to decide if you’d stick with what you have or switch to another.
blogs.zdnet.com: The bonds of the FOSS community go far beyond software. Case in point, Arjen Lentz is stepping outside the bounds of the comfortable realm of software and launching bluehackers.org.
toolbox.com/blogs: All the Linux bashers use this as an excuse/reason why Linux is not suitable as a desktop operating system. You should never have to use the command line they say. I personally don't think the command line is bad at all.
So here we are, entering another year — and no doubt at some point during this year, more than one person will declare it the “year of the Linux desktop”. Of course it won’t happen and those who consider themselves free software opponents will soon let us know.
linux-hardcore.com: I am going to review one of those distributions that have as a mission to be minimalist and without frills, but just trying to be effective. It's called CrunchBang and I was very surprised, we see why.
ddj.com: Often, a developer's goal is to create software that runs on many different operating systems, while giving users the same experience no matter which operating system they happen to be using. Virtual machine technology lets developers run multiple operating systems each installed in a VM, which should save them time and money -- if the VM performance doesn't suffer.
tuxarena.blogspot: Not long ago I reviewed Songbird 0.7.0, and in the meantime version 1.0.0 was released. What are the new features Songbird comes with and what improvements over the previous releases features 1.0?
freesoftwaremagazine.com: I was window shopping in a high street electronics store a few days ago. I was delighted to see a shelf display full of netbooks from vendors like Samsung, Acer, Dell, Advent and Asus (of course), to name a few. It looked like the Asus EeePC had launched an idea whose time had come and in the process possibly heralded the long withdrawing roar of the live CD.
blog.lib.umn.edu: MS Office is a pain. It's not the worst word processor in the world, but I find that Word actually makes it more difficult for me to create and edit my documents. It's much easier to do the same work under OpenOffice.

linuxshellaccount.blogspot: If you haven't had a chance yet, and you're the type who likes to mix your religion in with your work (oh yeah, and you're Christian), this Unique Ubuntu Distribution may be for you!
linuxloop.com: Whatever you might want to say about Microsoft calling Silverlight “crossplatform” and not making a version for Linux, you have to give them credit for what they did leading up to Obama’s inauguraiton.
ldn.linuxfoundation.org: Well, I'd have to say that for January, these past few days have certainly been chock full o' Linux news. And not just any news: a big Linux conference, a significant licensing shift for a big-name Linux library, layoffs in Redmond, and--perhaps most earth-shattering of all--Bdale Garbee got his beard shaved off for charity.
introducingkde4.blogspot: I can't truly comment on how much it improve, since I didn't use Kontact in KDE 3.5.x, however, what I can say is I'm completely amazed by it. It works well, it has a overall good interface (with some, from my point of view, little mistakes here and there).
linuxtoday.com: Linux advocacy is caught up in a race to the bottom, and this is understandable, because for those who wish to dethrone Windows, diving to the bottom appears to be the most direct route to the throne. But appearances are deceiving.
