iTWire: It would be rather funny if, after all the brouhaha Microsoft has made recently about patent violations, the company is found to be violating the one thing which it passionately hates - the existing General Public Licence.
Mozilla Links: PONG!, the video game that signaled the entrance of digital addiction to homes all around is now available as a Firefox extension, developed by Captain Caveman (yep, who'd have thought).
CRN: With increasing chatter about whether 2007 will be the "Year of the Linux Desktop," you hear considerably less about whether it's time for the Linux Office. But business desktops aren't just islands unto themselves. In a networked world, the desktop is just a piece of the office puzzle.
Wired.com: In an effort to rally support for the underdog media format, the Free Software Foundation has launched PlayOgg.org, a website promoting awareness of the Ogg format.
Texstar and the Ripper Gang are pleased to announce the final release of PCLinuxOS 2007, featuring kernel 220.127.116.11, KDE 3.5.6, Open Office 2.2.0, Firefox 18.104.22.168, Thunderbird 2.0, Frostwire, Ktorrent, Amarok, Flash, Java JRE and much much more.
dot.kde.org: In this week's KDE Commit-Digest: User-visible functionality added in Plasma. Support for animated SVG images in SuperKaramba. Kanagram becomes the latest application to adopt a scalable, SVG-based interface. Initial code imported, as a statement of intention, to support interaction with Exchange servers and the Akonadi PIM data store.
All about Linux: Recently while visiting a friends house, I ran into a situation where I had to use his computer. His computer is a rather old one which he has seldom maintained properly. That was when I felt the need for a solution where in I could use a standalone version of my favorite applications.
Mary Jo Foley: So why go public with an alleged number of violations? Hilf told IDG News Service (IDGNS) in an interview late last week that the decision to share the numbers was motivated by a call for “more transparency.”
Software Reality: My story is a common one: I tried GNU/Linux a few years ago (and a few years before that, and even a few years before that), and each time grew excited by the possibilities. However I had real work to get done. So each time, I resolved with heavy heart that I would return to Linux later.
eWeek: At CERN, the PCs, CPU servers and disks are linked on a 1G-bps network provided by Hewlett-Packard ProCurve switches. CERN itself will contribute 10 percent of the total necessary processors for the job, including 3,500 PCs and the rest single- or dual-core processors all running a version of Linux called Scientific Linux CERN.
/home/liquidat: Some hardware firmware updates need a DOS environment for executing the flash tools. There are free DOS versions available to accomplish this task easily.
CyberCapital.Org: You can easily double the joy of using Firefox by knowing these essencial Firefox tips. Feel free to comment your Ff tips!
MDLog:/sysadmin: If you will run today yum (or up2date) on a Centos 4 system you will notice that there are many updated packages available. This is happening because Centos has released the 5th update of Centos-4 a few days ago and now this update is appearing on Centos mirrors.
Tux Love (PCWorld): I've become so used to wobbly windows now that whenever I use a regular machine I end up feeling cheated if I drag one and it doesn't display a certain sticky inertia. And if I feel positively deflated if I hit Ctrl + Alt + [any arrow key] and a glorious desktop cube doesn't flip me over to the next display face. What am I talking about?
Linux-Tip: NoMachine NX is a Terminal Server and Remote Access solution based on open source technologies. It makes it possible to run any graphical application on any operating system across any network connection as if you were sitting in front of your computer.
Kristian’s blog: One day I’m writing about all these changes I want to make in Beryl, and the next day Beryl is merging with the Compiz community. So whatever happened to my vision? Was it just talk? No, it wasn’t.
Phoronix: Today we have the SMC SMC2870W 802.11g Wireless Ethernet Bridge. This wireless bridge is capable of turning any wired networking device into a wireless node and can also act as an Internet Access Point along with a built-in 802.11b/g repeater. What category of righteousness does this product fall into? Well, for Linux users, the SMC bridge is falling down.
ComputerWorld: Palm's announcement earlier this month of the Palm OS Treo 755p provoked some questions regarding whether this would be the last Palm device to run the Palm Garnet OS, now that Palm is embracing Linux.
Matthew Garrett: As the number of people using Linux in mobile situations increases, the need to reduce power consumption also increases. While some of these power savings are obvious (like turning off hardware when it's not being used), others are more subtle. The combination of recent changes to the kernel and some small adjustments to existing code can have a significant effect on your battery life.
Linux Insider: We're now seeing Microsoft's true stripes. The performance of the products is a charade, an unfortunate cost of doing business in a once competitive market. The real means to profits and market share are really about legal positioning, but in essence necessitates a military posture. For what are laws and lawyers but a means to avoid violence and warfare in lieu of a day in court?
