itwire.com: In the last few weeks and months, there have been some very interesting articles and discussions on iTWire about Linux, Windows and Mac OS and their relative merits. Here's my take on why I think that Linux will ultimately succeed.
computerworlduk.com: There is something rather curious about software companies operating in the open source world. Although they may be competitors in a particular sector, the open source licence they employ means that they are also partners: they can generally use the code of other companies if they wish.
linuxloop.com: If Ubuntu announced that a radically new theme would be included in Ubuntu 9.04, would you believe them? After promising exactly that in 8.04 and again in 8.10 without ever delivering, I would not.
linux.com: Over time, people tend to accumulate a large number of messages in various email accounts, most of which they never bother with again. The problem is particularly acute for administrator accounts that receive routine notifications of events that are viewed, if at all, no more than once. The archivemail tool lets you easily archive these old messages and thereby free up some disk space and improve your mail client's performance.
SystemImager lets you create images of your Linux installations. To do so, you need an image server (should have enough disk space to store your images) and a so-called golden client (i.e., the system of which you want to make an image). This means that you have to install some software on your image server and on your golden client in order to run SystemImager.

linux.com: Attorney Andrew Updegrove specializes in technology, intellectual property, and standards. While other lawyers can make the same claim, few have his credentials -- maintainer of an online repository about standards consortia, former board member of the Linux Foundation, and progenitor of a major open source license.
umpcportal.com: The crossover is finally happening. The smartphone CPU designer is moving into the PC market while the PC CPU designer is moving into the smartphone market.
mozillalinks.org: Mozilla has released Firefox 3.0.4, the fourth update to Firefox 3, released last June. As usual, this release brings several stability and performance bug fixes, as well as, according to the release notes, some security patches.
geek.com: I’ve been a GNU/Linux user for about a decade now. Back then, GNU/Linux absolutely deserved a lot of the criticisms it received: it was hard to use, it was a pain to configure, and interoperability with more mainstream protocols and file formats was a crap shoot at best. Enter Hackett and Bankwell.
blogs.computerworld: Microsoft CEO and President, Steve Ballmer was happy as a clam today at his WindowsWorld keynote in San Francisco's Gates Center. "Nothing can make me happier to tell you that, Larry Page CEO of Google," a niche AOL search engine, "has agreed to run their search engine on Windows Server 2004."
polishlinux.org: Dolphin is the default file manager for KDE4. It is very powerful, offering many functionalities. The developers have focused on the functionality of Dolphin - being a file manager. As a long-time user, I can say it is a very proud substitute for its older brother, Konqueror.
blog.makezine.com: This is a visualization of a linux boot sequence where each function is a node and each edge represents a function call, direct branch, or indirect branch. Nodes are laid out using an unweighted force-directed layout algorithm, where each node is simulated as if it were electrically repulsive and had springs between nodes.
linuxcanuck.wordpress: Windows users are familiar with fragmentation. When you have fragmentation, it means that it is time to do some drive maintenance. With Linux it takes on another meaning, since Linux drives are not as prone to fragmentation. To get fragmentation in Linux all you need to do is put two users in the same room.
cnet.com: Google is tight-lipped about the Linux version of its Chrome browser, but the company's programmers have proved a bit more forthcoming with a brief announcement that they have a crude version of Chrome working on Linux.
tuxgeek.me: Released in June, Google Gadgets for Linux provides about the same functionality of Vista sidebar or Mac OS X dashboard. While other solutions like ‘gdesklets’ are pretty popular within the linux crowd, Google’s’ platform provides compatibility with both gadgets written for the Windows version and the huge repository of web-centered gadgets. Let’s take it for a spin and see if it’s worth installing.
dedoimedo.com: If you're using Internet, there's a fair chance you're using some sort of instant messaging, voice, video - or both - telephony or other communication tools to stay in touch with people all over the world. Web cameras play a big part in Internet communication. The crucial question is, can you use these devices on your laptops, should they have Linux installed on them?
junauza.com: After installing the latest KDE flavor of Ubuntu last night, I am supposed to write my initial impressions about it today, and I expected it to be good. Unfortunately, something unexpected happened. Kubuntu 8.10 "Intrepid Ibex" failed miserably after the installation.
