puppylinux.org/community/blogs: I've installed Puppy Linux 4.0 (Dingo). I like it. A lot. It has really impressed me, and I'm difficult to impress. Now, I appreciate the "blind squirrel" phenomenon - a blind squirrel will occasionally find a nut. But this is different.
crashedpips.co.uk: Ubuntu 8.10, the Intrepid Ibex, is starting to take shape. It’s going to be similar in spirit to Edgy Eft (6.10), in that it’s focussed on introducing radical new features, as opposed to polish and stability. Now, I’m all in favour of new features. And, in my opinion, Ubuntu needs a new theme. Perhaps it should be something with a little more colour this time. It also needs a new font.
sizzledcore.com: I started using Ubuntu 4 months back, and since then I’ve been looking for ways to customize and tweak it to make Ubuntu more productive and look good. During my search, I came across many cool themes from various sources that I’d like to share with you all.
wordpress.com: There are times when I want to let my geekiness out and I want the world to know about it. I decided to share with you my favorite collection of Linux t-shirts that you also might like. Please share you ideas for healthy geeking in the comments.
antonywilliams.com: KDE is a Desktop environment like GNOME. Whilst there are some historical reasons for them both existing (KDE was originally built with a toolkit that wasn't free, so GNOME was created), they're both now based on OSS toolkits.

channelregister.co.uk: Ubuntu-based things do pretty well in techie circles. The consumer space is a different beast, as gOS discovered when mega retailer Wal-Mart blamed poor demand from those sporting baseball caps and mullets for its decision to stop selling PCs loaded with its version on Linux earlier this year.
groklaw.net: I put this article from Law.com's Legal Technology page, "Commentary: The Penguin Doesn't Fly, Avoid Linux" in News Picks because I found it hilarious, in the Rob Enderle kind of way. But then I thought I'd look up the author on Google, and lo and behold, I find he said something that appears to be not exactly true.
catswhocode.com: I absolutely love Linux, but in terms of design I have saw better than the default theme of most of the available distributions. Here’s a complete how-to for giving your Linux desktop the look you want and customize everything, from themes to fonts.
linuxplanet.com: The mobile Internet device (MID) space is one of the fastest growing platforms with new concept designs appearing every month. Nokia was one of the earliest vendors with a product (Nokia 770) in this space to ship with a Linux operating system (OS) and continues to see solid sales with the current model 810. New concept designs come in a wide range of shapes and sizes, and many sport a Linux OS.

thunk.org/tytso/blog: This wasn’t one of the things we were explicitly engineering for when were designing the features that would go into ext4, but one of the things which we’ve found as a pleasant surprise is how much more quickly ext4 filesystems can be checked.
stompbox.typepad: I am sitting at a lounge in Detroit waiting for my flight to Argentina for Debconf. They have a printer available, and the guy in front of me is plugged in and got the CD of drivers from the front desk and was wrestling with this thing for like 15 minutes.
theunixgeek.blogspot: Don't get me wrong on this - I love Linux and Ubuntu is one of my favorite distros, but there were some problems that temporarily turned me away.

This week I bring you an interview with the community manager at SourceForge, Ross Turk.
linux.com: Many college graduates are finding it difficult to enter the information technology world with little or no work experience. There is no such thing as an entry-level position anymore, and more and more graduates are finding themselves in a catch-22 situation because of this.
geekeree.wordpress: So here’s a good topic to get into on the geekery, UMPCs. I really like these small form factor laptops. So much I’ve got 2! The machine ships with Vista Home Premium, and as we all know, Vista is a resource Pig. So I fired up the first Ubuntu 8.04 cd I could find.
