Paula Rooney: Novell’s Mono project has delivered its first Integrated Development Environment (IDE) for Mono as well as a beta version of the next Mono platform.
phoronix.com: Introduced in Ubuntu 7.10 was install-time encryption support where using the alternate installer one can fully encrypt their disk in an LVM using dm-crypt. Using Ubuntu 8.04 Alpha 6 we have looked at the performance cost of this encrypted configuration on Ubuntu Linux.
planstoprosper.org.uk: Having been round the houses with Linux systems I've eventually ended up back with Linspire. Recently I've tried openSuse, PCLinuxOS, Fedora, Sabayon, Ubuntu, Mandriva, Xandros, Elive and Dreamlinux.
wiseup88.blogspot: At the end of last year, I tried Linux Ubuntu 7.10 Gutsy Gibbon. Two words to fully describe it; Super Duper! I seriously am looking forward the next release Linux Ubuntu 8.04.
kdedevelopers.org: It has been over a month since the last version and it's still a month until KDE 4.1 Alpha 1 so it seems a good time to create a new Live CD with the openSUSE KDE 4.0.66 snapshot packages.
singularitybe.blogspot: Next to Fedora 8, I plan to try out Centos 5 because it is supposed to be more secure and stable. It appears I can reuse the kickstart file I created for Fedora 8, since the installation went ok. But then come the problems.
tycheent.wordpress: In my last post I mentioned Free Libre Open Source Software (FLOSS). Many people don’t know what FLOSS is, but it’s really quite simple.
rktoday.blogspot: Sometimes a little ingenuity and a simple approach beats a high-tech solution. Tonight, I thought I would get fancy and try out Compiz-Fusion. I changed one setting that hosed the display. All I could see was a black screen with a few white blocks here and there, along with the mouse pointer. Uh-Oh!
ubuntuland.nireblog: The Burgner project aims to be a complete free burning suite, totally rewritten from scratch: it does not include any code from cdrtools (cdrecord and mkisofs) nor cdrdao, and is not a front-end for these tools.

africanxpression.co.za: I have been a Linux nut for many years and have tried many, many distro’s from the early Red Hat versions to Ubuntu, Mepis, Knoppix, Fedora and of course Suse.I have been impressed with Linux as a server platform for many years but as a desktop platform is has been a long, hard road.
Carla Schroder: This brand-new Linux user, this refugee from the Redmond wastelands, was stretching her wings and trying to fly. She edited xorg.conf all by herself, though not quite the right way. Now how many new Linux users can even find xorg.conf, let alone have the boldness to muck with it? Or even experienced users? The Ubuntu forums are cram-full of command-line fear and loathing; the very sight of a text file drives them into seizures.
progbox.co.uk: The OSCS is supposed not to govern or provide a barrier-to-entry for projects. It is supposed to be a way to enhance the experience of new contributors by giving them all the information they need to get started, from contacts to process flows. How many people here would like to know just exactly how a package gets into main, or universe for that matter.
makeuseof.com: One thing you hear often about Linux is that there’s no software for it. This is simply not true. There may not be much proprietary software for it, but there is some, and there are plenty of free alternatives to what most offices use every day.

screenage.de: So just before the first beta I finally updated my production machine to Hardy after feeling bad about not giving enough effort in testing for the last weeks. In one short sentence: It worked! In a longer sentence: It worked quite well, but…
johnlpreston.co.uk: Why more people don’t use Linux? It’s a pain to get set up correctly. For example, I was trying to show off Kubuntu to some friends last Tuesday, and because Kubuntu doesn’t contain any proprietary software, I couldn’t play MP3s or video.
talesoftech.blogspot: I find I'm recently getting inquiries from various friends and business associates who say they want to try Linux. So I thought I'll post about it here. So far I've used three Linux distributions (or distros): Xandros, Ubuntu and Gentoo.
sathyaphoenix.wordpress: There’s one big factor in why Linux isn’t popular on the desktop. Linux is free. I know this sounds like complete dog’s bollocks, but hear me out before judging my sanity.
