ubuntumini.com: One of the sacrifices I had to make when choosing to install Ubuntu 8.10 was that there would be no way to turn off wifi and bluetooth. The battery would drain faster because I would have to keep them powered when not using them. Recently it was brought to my attention that there is a Aircraft Manager .deb.
phoronix.com: The Linux 2.6.28 kernel was released this past week in time for the holidays. This quarterly update to the Linux kernel brought the stabilization of the EXT4 file-system, the Graphics Execution Manager, a host of new drivers, and a variety of other updates. For some weekend benchmarking we had tested the latest Linux 2.6.28 kernel.
tycheent.wordpress: My wife gifted me with a TomTom ONE 125 GPS navigator. On charging it up and connecting it to my computer, I discovered that Microsoft had struck again.
computingtech.blogspot: X-windows is a system that divides the labor up quite a bit. An X-windows application draws and controls only the area "inside" the window, the so-called client area. A totally separate program, called a "window manager" paints the borders and controls (such as resizing edges, maximize, minimize, and close buttons).
molkentin.de/blog: This christmas, Santa brought an Acer Aspire One (A110L) for my mother, a not so techy person. It's supposed to be simple and useful. And at first glance, that's true: It comes with Firefox, OpenOffice, etc. Unfortunately, there is also a downside.

valdyas.org: I thought it'd be a tolerably good idea to celebrate boxing day with installing OpenSUSE 11.1. After all, given that this laptop is a Thinkpad X61t with built-in tablet, installing a new version of any distribution tends to be interesting.

aronzak.wordpress: Today, in Ken Hess’s Linux Blog, the top 10 Distrowatch distros are listed as ones to try out by downloading and burning them to disc or virtualising. What annoys me is that Damn Small Linux (abbreviated DSL because it’s a bad name) got into that list, but not Puppy Linux. Why?
Aaron Seigo: The calendar in my Plasma panel says that soon we will have gone through all the days allocated for 2008 and will start in on 2009. While a rather arbitrary line in time, calendar year-ends are a convenient time to look both back and forward. KDE sits between two great years in its history and therefore there is much one can reflect upon as well as look forward to.
jcornuz.wordpress: For a long time I wanted to do an interview with one of the GIMP developers. Then I came across Martin Nordholts (aka enselic) website. I decided he was the man and bugged him for an interview.
