adventuresinopensource.blogspot: Well it's review time again and today's candidate is Linux Mint 5. I say today's candidate but really I should say this months candidate as I ended up spending a lot more time on Mint than I'd planned. I really liked Mint 4 and gave it a rave review last year, so this new version would have to work hard to impress me, after 3 weeks with it on and off how does it stack up? Here goes...
Whether you are online or offline, freedom matters. Like good health you never think about it or miss it until it is under threat or actually gone. If you love freedom, you probably love free software and it has given us some terrific tools with which to defend freedom. In this article I will give an overview of some of the available resources (Freenet, Wikileaks and Tor) to protect dissident opinion, facilitate whistle blowing and promote the safe and anonymous development of free software.
codingexperiments.com: “Foresight is a desktop operating system featuring an intuitive user interface and a showcase of the latest desktop software” The question is, is this the case? Does it fulfill its goal? As it turns out, the July issue of Linux Format shipped with it a copy of Foresight Linux 2.0. On a whim, I tried that out.
opera.com: We are still doing polishing on Kestrel and have some more crashfixes etc for you all to play with. Please look for regressions since 9.50
raiden.net: One thing I hate above almost anything else is when a vendor tells you what you can and can't do with your software. That drives me bonkers. So what brought on this little bout of ranting and bitterness?
softpedia.com: Mandriva announced last night the second alpha release of Mandriva 2009, which brings KDE4 (default desktop), GNOME 2.23.4, and support for the newest NVIDIA and ATI/AMD video cards. The development cycle of Mandriva 2009 will continue until the final release in early October, 2008. With the 2009 edition.
compiz-fusion.org/~cyberorg: …some useful some not so, these are the new plugins available in compiz-fusion-plugins-git packages from openSUSE Build Service repository.
glatzor.de: In which package can I translate this message/dialog? What is the difference between these two po files? How can I access the translation page of a package in a faster way compared to clicking through the whole website tree or manipulating the url? Where can I get the automatically updated language packs?
arstechnica.com: Linux distributor Canonical is putting a price tag on packaged Ubuntu installation CDs and making them available for purchase on shelves in retail stores. The question, however, is whether the package delivers enough additional value to justify the cost. The answer, according to Canonical, is the ValuSoft startup support.
jaysonrowe.wordpress: One thing that does irritate me is bickering between different camps in the Linux community. Each thinks that their distribution is the best, and should be used by every living, breathing and eating human being – ’nuff said. I really feel that this is a dangerous attitude, and I feel that this is an attitude that is going to continue to hurt Linux over all rather than help.
toolbox.com/blogs: Whenever I have conversations with people about windows and Linux they always ask me what is so good about Linux. They see something that looks pretty and gives them a wow factor but it is not enough. I can talk about Linux's superior multitasking and hardware support or security against virus's and spyware and I get the gazed donut look in pretty short order.

eetimes.com: Though not the first open-source robot, iCub underscores a trend that is poised to increase the productivity of artificial-intelligence (AI) researchers, in the same way the open-source movement has enhanced work in other sectors of design.
planetoss.com: After nearly a year of hard work, Sabayon team has released their new Gentoo based Linux, SabayonLinux 3.5 on 1st July 2008. Sabayon is the most successful project in making Gentoo beginner friendly.

liquidat.wordpress: At the GNOME conference GUADEC plans were presented how the transition to the new Gtk and GNOME is supposed to happen. The basic idea is to make the transition as smooth as possible by first cleaning up everything and introducing new concepts later on.
cnet.com: For the most part, on this blog, I try to convince readers to do something defensive on their computers - like a parent nagging a child to eat their vegetables. Only once have I put my foot down, so to speak, saying unequivocally last year that all Windows XP users should employ DropMyRights. Now, another emphatic endorsement - all Windows users should have a Linux Live CD, and, know how to use it.
blogs.pcmag.com: Every year or so, there's a new Linux distro darling. Last year's was Ubuntu, and I've lost track of what this year's favorite penguin might be. But a lot of newcomers to Linux seem to get the impression that a new distro is better than an older package because there'll be more attention paid to new technologies and easier user interfaces. In fact, pretty much the opposite is true.
phoronix.com: It's been 234 days (or just shy of eight months) since Unreal Tournament 3 had shipped for the PC. Most would have thought the Linux client for this title from Epic Games would have arrived by now, but sadly it hasn't and there is no sign of when it will arrive.
