blog.freeside.fr: Almost 5 years have passed since I erased my Microsoft Windows partitions to switch to Mandriva Linux. However, I try to keep myself informed of what happens in the Windows world, just to be able to help relatives when they're in trouble. Yesterday, I had a Windows box to cure. Here's what I was painfully reminded:
phoronix.com: Following our article looking at the state of X.Org (along with announcing the release of X Server 1.4.1), we proceeded to share the contributors behind the X Server. What we hadn't looked at in that analysis was the people and companies behind the work on Mesa 3D, or the OpenGL component used by X. In this article, however, we have these statistics to share.
freesoftwaremagazine.com: Quite a long time ago (maybe in 2000), people started talking about the Slashdot effect. Being Slashdotted meant (and still means) that a truckload of computers online suddenly decide to access your site. The results on your servers used to be disastrous. I think I ought to attempt something brave: I would like to coin a new word: the Groklaw effect.
arstechnica.com: The relationship of mutual benefit that exists between mobile device makers and the open source development community on which they increasingly depend presents a unique paradox. Specifically, advancing the development of free software sometimes necessitates compromises that limit software freedom, particularly when it comes to providing open-source support for technologies like DRM.
blogs.gnome.org/lucasr: Ok, now that I’ve already made my point about our great achievements, it’s time to talk about the big questions. People have different expectations and perspectives about GNOME and hence they define the “decadence” and, consequently, the possible solutions, in different ways.

celettu.wordpress: I’ve seen a lot of articles lately about the release of Banshee 1.0, the Gnome music player “written in C# on the Mono platform using GNOME technologies.” I do get curious however when people claim that Banshee will replace Rhythmbox as the default Gnome media player on their system. I’ve used Rhythmbox. It’s pretty good. I was curious what Banshee had to offer.
daniweb.com/blog: Yes, it's Sunday again and you know what that means--Crystal Ball Sunday and new predictions for Linux and Open Source for the coming months. This week I probe application and operating system interoperability.
cooltechzone.com: We all know what each offers, but which one best fits different type of users? In this article, I hope to better answer that particular question. And of course, all platforms will be considered, not just Linux.

freesoftwaremagazine.com: Every field has its own key individuals who donated much of their time to the ideas they believed in. Their work affects large chunks of the world’s population, and bring amazing changes to the way we see and experience the world. The free software world has its own heroes.
hydrapinion.com: To me, web browsers are like operating systems – the sooner we don’t have to care about them the better. The day they just sit in the background and let us do what we need to do, quickly and efficiently, will be a happy day indeed.

This tutorial shows how to set up an Ubuntu Hardy Heron (Ubuntu 8.04 LTS) based server that offers DNS services using BIND. This article is written for the 32-bit version of Ubuntu 8.04 LTS, but should apply to the 64-bit version as well.
madpenguin.org: Realizing that "What if" articles tend to bring out the best and worst in people, I thought it was worth exploring this mindset again, just for kicks. In this piece, I want to explore what if the power players in the corporate Linux world actually bothered to make their interests in Linux an all or nothing type of game.
sabayonlinux.org: After months and months and months of hard work, I am happy to say that Sabayon Linux 3.5 final will enter the final beta testing stage within 48 hours and will stay there for a couple of weeks.
linuxinsider.com: Firefox has risen from humble beginnings -- it was assembled from the scraps left over when Netscape was left for dead -- to become a real thorn in the side of Microsoft. Now, as it prepares to go live with its third version, the open source project's leadership promises more innovation.

polishlinux.org: In this article I’m going to show the benefits of storing the photos in RAW “format”. I’ll be also decribing GNU/Linux tools that can help you with processing such images.
quintinriis.com: I’ve used prelink in the past on Ubuntu in an attempt to speed up application loading, but I’ve never actually done any benchmarks to test the results. I decided today to run some simple benchmarks to gauge the performance increase of using prelink.
