arstechnica.com: The developers of the open source KDE desktop environment announced the availability of the second KDE 4.1 beta release this week. This version has many improvements to usability and overall robustness compared to the previous beta. I tested KDE 4.1 beta 2 with a LiveCD build of openSUSE 11.
lizards.opensuse: In order to give an answer about “Why this package will be installed and who needs it?” I have added a new Dialog in the QT single package selector. Select one item (pattern, package) in the single selection frame and the result will be shown with this dialog.
linux.com: If you work some of the time on your laptop and some of the time on your desktop box, making sure that your work is updated on both machines is a must. Many tools can help you accomplish this, from command-line tools such as scp and rsync to generic graphical applications like Konqueror or Krusader, to more specific tools like Unison. Komparator and KDiff3, a couple of KDE applications with interesting features, may offer better ways of syncing your work.
raiden.net: Over the past couple of weeks I've been involved in a college class on how to write a research report. It's certainly not the easiest class, but it's been informative. Being a geek myself, I chose for my research topic, the ever volatile subject of "The best ways to market Linux."
oreillynet.com/onlamp/blog: I read about the U.S. government’s USAsearch.gov site using the Vivisimo engine for search federal, state, and local government sites in the U.S. This is the same engine used by the Clusty search site. The first phrase that came to mind to search for was Open Source.
easylinuxguide.com/blog: In my last blog article I talked about how much progress the major distros have made lately in terms of creating much smoother and more usable interfaces for the general new Linux user. One major downfall remained. This article is about Mandriva.
markshuttleworth.com: A distribution occupies a very specific niche in the free software ecosystem. Among other things, we need to accept some responsibility for ALL the software defects (”bugs”) that users actually experience across the entire stack. Most users don’t install their apps from upstream source tarballs, they install them from the packages provided by their distribution.
fsckin.com: Building a carputer the most difficult, expensive and rewarding do-it-yourself (DIY) projects I have ever completed. On the surface, the idea is simple, just take a computer put it in the car. In reality, it is several times more difficult than installing a car alarm.
reddevil62-techhead.blogspot: HOW many Linux users do you know who, once they have installed a new distribution, are so happy with its default appearance that they leave it alone? Once I have a distribution I am happy with, in terms of its performance and stability, I always spend an hour or two getting it to look exactly how I want.
idg.no: Just a week after Mozilla Corp. shipped Firefox 3.0, the open-source developer has proposed ship dates for the next version that, if approved, would produce an alpha release next month and a final no later than early 2009.

Full Circle Magazine Issue 14 Out. This month, we’re proud to introduce a new column, Command and Conquer. We’ll be taking a look at the command line and hopefully how to make it a little less scary for you.
pcworld.com (IDG): Low-cost PC maker Everex this week said it had agreed to be acquired by systems integrator Newmarket Technology for an undisclosed sum. Everex is well-known for the Linux-based Cloudbook, an inexpensive ultraportable notebook computer like the Asus Eee PC.
practical-tech.com: I’ve been getting told that my recent review of KDE 4 wasn’t fair because KDE 4 isn’t really ready for prime time. My response: “When is any program, especially an open-source program, ready?”
This video was from 2001 and a lot of time has passed since then. Perhaps Linus is feeling a bit more positive about the GPL than he was at that time. Perhaps not though, because he doesn't seem very inclined to begin the process of moving the Linux Kernel to GPLv3.
sebruiz.net: My last couple of weeks has been spent focusing on getting cover art back up to scratch in Amarok 2. Cover art really adds a lot of spice and colour into the UI of the application, especially now that we are showing the artwork in the collection browser, context view and playlist.
nvalcarcel.aureal.com.pe: Today at work (where i can’t use linux) i was asked to do a really easy and repetitive task: Take screenshots from an e-learning course and paste it with the content text on a text document. It sounds easy (not fun, just easy), well it wasn’t for several reasons:
