pcworld.com: Now that I've been using my Acer Aspire One laptop for two weeks I can share a few more thoughts about it. Do I still love the laptop? Most assuredly. Have I discovered some small areas for improvement? Yes, that too.
community.zdnet: There are a number of different photo management programs available for Linux - more than I have either the time or interest to look at, honestly - and of course different versions of Linux have different programs available. I'll try to give a brief overview of both of these areas.
itwire.com: Not everyone who uses Linux today has done so because of carefully reasoning that it is a better operating system than the others on offer. People enter the Linux fold due to different reasons and those who stay there go through several stages of growth.
thevarguy.com: Novell today claimed to have more certified software partners than rival Linux providers. Novell’s chest pumping represents a thinly veiled attack against Red Hat. But take a closer look.
Also: Novell needs a recount: Red Hat still leads in certified applications
linuxdevices.com: Binary-only Linux drivers will never work for the majority of Linux users, Harald Welte told hardware developers at a Taipei conference. The Linux kernel's lack of an ABI and intentional lack of stable APIs make binary drivers a losing battle.
theunixgeek.blogspot: A few days after Ubuntu 8.10 Intrepid Ibex was released, I decided to give it a test drive in my trial of VMware Fusion. I was hoping for an awesome new experience, but I got just a Featureless Ibex.
computerworld.com: Migrating from high-end Unix-based systems to commodity x86/Linux platforms has been a popular idea for the last few years, at least in theory. But it turns out that not everyone thinks going full-on with Linux is the best solution -- at least not yet.
infoworld.com: In the real estate world, the mantra is location, location, location. In the network and server administration world, the mantra is visibility, visibility, visibility. If you don't know what your network and servers are doing at every second of the day, you're flying blind.
the-gay-bar.com: I love music. When I moved to Linux I started out with XMMS, a WinAmp Clone, no surprises there, things worked as I was used to. Along came the "Library based" players that offered so much more.
arstechnica.com: Sometimes an idea so simple, so brilliant, so obvious crosses your path and you think, "D'oh! Why didn't I come up with this several decades ago?" This morning, I once again experienced that sense of awe and shame, when fellow staffers Ryan and Clint pointed me to lns.
blogs.techrepublic.com: On October 13 of this year, OpenOffice.org 3.0 was released. This highly anticipated release provides a number of enhancements. Vincent Danen shares some of the best new features.
jdeeth.blogspot: Microsoft dominates three big branches of the computing experience: the operating system, the browser, and the office suite. At the top of the ticket, the operating system race, Microsoft wins in a landslide with about 90 percent. The Mac is at around 8 and Linux is pushing toward 1.
davestechsupport.com/blog: Yesterday while I was browsing Ubuntu Forums I came across a thread posted by someone named EssexJames. He recounts a recent experience with showing his 10 year old son Ubuntu. “Daddy, what’s Brainf**k?” he said.
news.cnet.com: Though SCO still has the option to appeal, a federal district court judge Dale Kimball has now effectively written its death sentence in the form of a somewhat blistering final judgment, as Groklaw reports.
earthweb.com: Any release of a GNU/Linux distribution marks a milestone in a continuous cycle of software development. However, Fedora 10 promises to be a larger milestone than most, both for its development community and users, according to Paul W. Frields, the Fedora leader and chair.
blogs.techrepublic.com: Today I read an article on Slashdot about a software maker concerned that open source software was causing a “race to zero” (as in the price of software). His problem was that his company produced a piece of software worth $5K one year and, because open source developers were creating the same tools and giving it away, the next year the software was worth $0.
linuxlock.blogspot: The computer user and the operating system are melded into one, once he or she sits down at the machine. It is the user that makes an operating system successful or not. If you care to disagree, let's take a look at general public opinion.
