linux devcenter: The third release of Xubuntu, the variant of Ubuntu with the lightweight Xfce desktop, appeared last month. Feisty Fawn (version 7.04) uses the final gold code of Xfce 4.4.0 rather than the release candidates in Edgy Eft (version 6.10) and Dapper Drake (version 6.06). I had very positive experiences with both Edgy and Dapper so I had very high expectations for Xubuntu Feisty Fawn.

Information Week blog: It's always informative to look at our most heavily trafficked stories to see what topics you're most interested in. No, it's not a scientific survey, but it certainly provides pretty powerful anecdotal evidence of what technologists are currently buzzing about.

Raiden's Realm: At some point in time, every new user to KDE will find themselves in need of of a way to access at least one, if not several different internet services. KDE comes with a built in selection of some of the most basic internet tools to allow you to do the things you need to do. Here's a short list.
Pimp Your Linux: One of the major things that people request here on Pimpyourlinux is for better fonts on Linux. I’ve done some research on the subject, and it is quite possible to make your Linux Desktop look great, even if you have a flat panel monitor.
rangit.com: Below are 8 addictive 3d games for linux users to fill their time with. These games are really good and some have won awards or have been featured on magazines. Most of it is cross platform and free. You don’t have to use ‘Wine’ to be able to play as they come with Linux installers.

Free Software Magazine: When we enter the world of “free and open source software”, most of us will choose one or the other philosophy. This choice is usually made easy by the people that guide us when we enter this world. We are at a point where the philosophies behind free software, which have been heralded by Richard M. Stallman and others, are threatened.
Debian-Administration: In our previous introduction to Puppet we covered installing the client and server, such that a small LAN could be configured centrally. Here we'll demonstrate some of the things that can be done with such a setup.
the inquirer: We can remember the times gamedevs were telling us, "DirectX? Us using it? Not in your wildest dreams." "Microsoft's puppet?" And so on and so forth, only to see them changing the tune when DX9 came along and became more a usable API than OpenGL.

Vincent Danen: I've never really played with Solaris before. I've looked at it once or twice, briefly, but that was about it. The other day I downloaded a vmware image for Nexenta GNU/OpenSolaris, one of these OpenSolaris-based distributions that apparently uses a lot of GNU software.
