gregdek.livejournal: If you've been interested in working on OLPC, but have no idea how to get started, consider becoming a tester of activities. Check out the Activity Testing Matrix.

linux magazine: No doubt you've heard the prediction before — "this is going to be the year of the Linux desktop." At the risk of being repetitive, though, I'm going to go ahead and say it: 2008 really could be the year of the Linux desktop.
techtarget.com: Early testing has shown that Ubuntu, when run as a virtual guest taking advantage of the new paravirt-ops paravirtualization interface, delivers as promised: it runs faster and more efficiently that it would as an unmodified guest.
linuxworld: Oracle Wednesday said that 1,500 companies have signed up for its Unbreakable Linux discount support program since it was announced one year ago
linux-watch: Ubuntu is extremely popular on the desktop, but it's made comparatively little progress on servers. That's about to change. Dell is expected to announce in the first quarter of 2008 that it has certified Ubuntu Linux for its server lines.
infosyncworld.com: We finally get a close look at the One Laptop Per Child XO laptop, and though nobody could explain the interface, the hardware was pretty cool.
kernelTRAP: "Ceph is a distributed network file system designed to provide excellent performance, reliability, and scalability with POSIX semantics. I periodically see frustration on this list with the lack of a scalable GPL distributed file system with sufficiently robust replication and failure recovery to run on commodity hardware, and would like to think that--with a little love--Ceph could fill that gap."
Debian Administration: User management and the related cryptographic authentication infrastructure is a major hurdle in deploying scalable, manageable VPNs (Virtual Private Networks). Two major pieces of FOSS (Free and Open Source Software) for VPNs are OpenSWAN and OpenVPN.
LinuxInsider: When it comes time to upgrade to a new version of proprietary software -- take the Windows OS, for example -- many users are less than thrilled. Upgrades can mean an added expense for anything more extensive than a bug fix or minor feature upgrades.
gnuski.blogspot: Yesterday we looked at the basic "Keep Above" and "Keep Below" options within KWin. Today lets get a bit more technical -- permanent identification. When you right-click on that title bar and select Advanced, you get the options:
linux.com: You can think of Kile as an IDE for the LaTeX document layout system. Instead of requiring you to learn a considerable amount of markup language, as LaTeX itself does, or providing you with a graphical interface that hides you from the complexity, as Lyx does, Kile automates the process of working with LaTeX while keeping the markup visible.
beans.seartipy.com: There were some excellent suggestions about very good blog editors for the GNU/Linux platform provided in the comments section of my previous post Five Desktop Blog Editors for GNU/Linux Users. So much so that I have decided to compile a second list.
iTWire: Just as as I was getting comfortable using Ubuntu on my desktop, enthusiastic readers have assailed me with stories about how I should give other Linux distros a try - particularly the KDE pair PCLinuxOS and SimplyMEPIS. I'm lucky to have four different computers at my immediate disposal so I tried the live CDs of the three distros on three of them to see how plug and play they were for wireless networking. The results were quite surprising.
Paul Murphy: It appears that the big changes in the server version focus on ease of use, particularly with respect to network setup, and on getting along in a predominantly Windows environment. When you compare MacOS X server to Linux, however, the key advantage for small businesses isn’t capital cost, it’s ease of setup and use.
This tutorial shows how you can enable Compiz Fusion on a Fedora 8 GNOME desktop.

In this week's KDE Commit-Digest: Resurgent development work on KDevelop 4, with work on code parsing, code completion and the user interface. Support for converting the KVTML XML-based format to HTML in KDE-Edu. Support for the much-wanted feature of multiple album root paths in Digikam. Various continued developments in Amarok 2.
junauza.blogspot: SLAX is a minuscule version of the well-known Slackware Linux distribution. It is a LiveCD operating system that does not need to be installed on a computer’s hard drive as it can boot and run from either a USB or a CD drive. There is also an option to run SLAX from RAM. It is now time to take a microscopic look at this tiny distro.
tuxtoday.wordpress: I have gone distrohunting again. This time it’s for my recently inherited Compaq Presario 2100 Laptop. This isn’t an impressive machine, it came with Windows XP, and OH MY GOD! Was that slow or what? I thought, what distros are nice and fast. And there it was… Arch Linux 0.8.
iTWire: Today we’re going to take it further and give our site a theme, add in useful Google webmaster tools for statistics, cut out spam and even try to make some money out of it. Beyond the domain name itself, every step is free, open source, code with not a cent to pay despite the excellent quality.
