CyberNetNews: I noticed today that the Mozilla Thunderbird wiki page had been updated with some of their plans for version 3. There isn’t much information provided, but there are two things they mention that I’m really excited to see in the next release.
iTWire: It appears that Linux and FOSS are two concepts that have yet to penetrate the conciousness of the inner sanctums of key Australian Government agencies. Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer last week met with the Australian Department of Defence, to sign a joint agreement reaffirming the "strong relationship" between the two organisations.

Version 2.2.15 of the GNU Image Manipulation Program is a bug-fix release in the stable 2.2 series. This is the stable branch of GIMP and only bug-fixes were applied.
sportsnetwork.com: Roberto Moreno is out of the race after crashing on lap 38.
Phoronix: We thought it was already clear what graphics processors and drivers work and don't work with Linux desktop eye candy such as Beryl and Compiz, but it seems based upon the number of e-mails we have been receiving along with messages in community bulletin boards that the line isn't so clear after all.
masuran.org: According to the Linux Mint homepage, Linux Mint's purpose is to produce an elegant, up to date and comfortable GNU/Linux desktop distribution. In this review, I will take a look at Linux Mint 2.2 (codename Bianca) and see how the Linux Mint team delivers.
LinuxWorld: So, you've just installed Ubuntu 7.04, otherwise known as the "Feisty Fawn" release of everyone's favorite (for now) flavor of Linux. But wait -- before you dive in too deeply, here are seven steps you can take right away to prevent common headaches and help yourself enjoy your new surroundings.
ComputerWorld: Microsoft’s posturing about its patents being infringed by open source software have received an almost universal reaction of scorn and disbelief. Comparisons were drawn with SCO’s similar, but rather more desperate claims from a couple of years ago.
Tech Trouble?: This reminds me of my initial days with Linux - about 8-10 years ago - when we were forced to configure each and every aspect of Linux configuration to simply work out things.
lockergnome: What triggered my entire thought process on a conspiracy theory is when I read that Dell is going to sell their Dimension series of computers through Wal-Mart and Sams Club. Hold on here!
Penguin Pete: Oh, my God, Linux community! Stop it, just stop it right this minute! This is sickening. Get up, dry that face, and get over here.
Fabrice Facorat: I've just have a look at the Gnome roadmap. The roadmap is giving the expected features of future versions of the gnome platform ( 2.20, 2.22, 2.x, 3.0 ). There are some interesting things to note:
DPotD: A sense of community remains is a powerful feature of Linux. Few tools reveal the power of open source, and none more clearly link this community better than IRC clients. Dozens of clients exist, from the small and powerful (irssi) to the complex (centericq). I prefer a lightweight gui: Konversation.
ZDNet blog: There are a lot of Linux experts on this site. I challenge them to come up with a list of applications that work the best for each of the given functions found in Windows Home Server.
blogbeebe: Remember that iconic scene from the start of Poltergeist, with Carol-Anne sitting in front of a T.V. screen full of static and making that announcement in her high, sweet voice? That odd little feeling of dread? You don't know why, but the warning flags are going up in your mind. That's the way I feel with the official arrival of Dell's Ubuntu systems.
Linux on the desktop: On Linux on the desktop, episode 16, I give a complete overview of openSUSE 10.2 including the installation, setup and configuration and we also take a look at the KDE and GNOME desktop on openSUSE.
/home/liquidat: I tested a release candidate of the new Fedora 7, code name Moonshine. As already pointed out, most big changes were under the hood and are not really visible to the user.

the distrogue: It's well known that Intel's i8xx/i9xx/GMA9xx graphics chips, which are used in several types of laptops, don't bring their own on-chip RAM, preferring to pillage it from the system's memory. For most users, 4 megabytes of VRAM is fine, but gamers will clearly want more than that! Here's how to do it:
linuxondesktop: PCLinuxOS is one of the finest Desktop Linux Distribution i have tried in past few years, it integrates some of the wonderful features of Mandriva Linux and adds a power pack collection of software. I have been a passionate user of Ubuntu and i can safely say if i had to recommend a Linux distro to someone new at computers it wont be Ubuntu but PCLinuxOS.
Ryan Stewart: I spent the past couple of days exploring Ubuntu and since I came away pretty impressed, I wanted to blog my thoughts.
