greentechgirl.com: I’ve been using Linux Mint instead of Ubuntu for a while, and overall I’m pleased with it. However, since upgrading from Linux Mint 5 (Elyssa) to 6 (Felicia), I’ve actually been a little less happy with it. A few irksome problems:
thunk.org/tytso/blog: Last night I managed to finish up a rather satisfying improvement to ext4’s inode and block allocators. The ext4’s original allocator was actually a bit more simple-minded than ext3’s, in that it didn’t implement the Orlov algorithm to spread out top-level directories for better filesystem aging.
dedoimedo.com: In this article, we will talk about Protech, a high-end hacking toolbox for the enterpreneuring system administrator. It is a young, new distribution, based on Ubuntu and running an extremely streamlined, lightweight Fluxbox desktop.

Linux provides a generic driver for SCSI devices and an application programming interface so users can build applications to send SCSI commands directly to SCSI devices. In this article, the author introduces some of the SCSI commands and methods of executing SCSI commands when using SCSI API in Linux. He also provides background on the SCSI client/server model and the storage SCSI command.
blogs.zdnet.com: Oh sure. Microsoft loves open source. If your open source company is willing to admit Microsoft owns Linux, acknowledge the legitimacy of its proprietary standards, and put “whatever Microsoft wants.”
kev009.com: I hate Ubuntu. I immediately lose respect for anyone who runs it, and especially those who advocate it. Here’s why:

earthweb.com: When you are a free and open source software (FOSS) supporter, life often seems black and white. What you decided would say a great deal about your reasons for supporting FOSS.
maketecheasier.com: What do you get when you put a stable operating system, an innovative desktop manager and plenty of eye candies together?
workswithu.com: A representative of Red Hat told a reporter recently that will indeed be pushing the Linux desktop again. Such a move would presumably present a challenge to Ubuntu, which has dominated the desktop scene for a long time. Or would it?
zdnet.co.ukVMware will release future versions of vCenter, its flagship virtualisation-management software, in Linux versions as well as for Windows.
opensourcereleasefeed.com: Kongoni is a completely new distribution to Linux, who is behind this and please give some background on what got you to this place.

jintoreedwine.wordpress: I have been using KDE 4.2 on both my Gentoo systems (laptop and desktop) since about a week after it was released. I still run it now and plan on running it until the next big release of KDE.
danlynch.org/blog: Today’s candidate is the latest release of a distro I first looked at some time ago, Sabayon. I’ve had mixed feelings about it in the past. I wanted to see how it had developed now they’d reached version 4.0, so here goes nothing…
mindstab.net: I haven't really touched my Gentoo desktop in over a year. If I wanted to stay with Gentoo, I'd have a day or two of compiling a head of me, and then who knows what integration head aches as programs and config files change.
phoronix.com: Due out tomorrow is the fifth alpha release for Ubuntu 9.04 (the Jaunty Jackalope). Ubuntu 9.04 is now in a feature freeze so there isn't much to expect in Jaunty Alpha 5, but there are a few items worth highlighting.
thunk.org/tytso/blog: I came across the following from the ext3-users mailing list. The poor user was stuck on a never-updated RHEL 3 production server and running into kernel panic problems. He was advised to try updating to the latest kernel rpm from Red Hat, but he didn’t feel he could do that.
