linuxlove.org: So many distributions, so many available choices.. Why such endless variety? Wasn’t Linux supposed to make things easier for the former / future ex Windows user? How can this scenario be good in any way?
tuxtoday.wordpress: Which menu-applet is the best? I cannot possibly give an answer to this that will apply to everyones taste, but what I can do is give an overall review of the three contestants and tell you what I feel is the good, and bad, things about them.
davestechsupport.com: So you went to Ubuntu.com, downloaded the latest Ubuntu Live CD ISO file from their website and burned it to a CD. You booted from that CD, waited for the desktop to appear, and double clicked on the Install icon. 40 minutes later, your hard drive is partitioned and ready to boot Ubuntu for the first time. Congratulations! But now what?!
linuxlove.org: Whenever you click a http:// or mailto: link in KDE, by default, Konqueror and KMail will open. I’m not saying these are bad apps, just that if you have Firefox and Thunderbird installed, why wouldn’t you want to use them fully?
phoronix.com: It was a year ago that AMD had replaced its aging FireGL Control Panel inside its Linux driver with the AMDCCCLE. The nvidia-settings utility on the other hand, has been around for a few years and has not seen a major rewrite.
crunchbang.org: I had some spare time yesterday and I decided to spend it playing with compositing under Openbox. I'm not normally too fussed about having eye-candy on the desktop; however, a few people have mentioned 3D effects, in IRC and on the forums, so I thought I'd have a go at configuring xcompmgr on one of my systems.
tuxtoday.wordpress: Brainstorm is the place to go to give your thoughts and ideas on what Ubuntu should be. However, apart from the nice ideas being proposed, there is a trend that really worries me.
pctonic.blogspot: Can you think of any changes that will take place if Linux dethrones Windows and Microsoft goes broke? Well, I just thought it over and these ideas came to my mind.
This document describes how to set up a two-node load balancer in an active/passive configuration with HAProxy and heartbeat on Fedora 8. The load balancer acts between the user and two (or more) Apache web servers that hold the same content.
kmandla.wordpress: Keep an eye on IceBuntu (and its dedicated forums here), because it’s steadily improving. This isn’t a one-time, just-for-fun, let’s-see-if-we-can-roll-our-own distro effort.
samiux.wordpress: We can do PHP programming by any text editor, such as vi and nano. However, a Integrated Development Environment (IDE) is good for debugging. However, we should install some server programs and do some configuration before using it.

blogs.cnet.com: The Seattle Post Intelligencer has collected and ranked the all-time worst (read: most incriminating) Microsoft emails of all time, and a dandy list it is, too. Perhaps my favorite of the bunch is Jim Allchin's 2004 blast against Windows...and in favor of the Mac:
phoronix: Back in November we started sharing some of the exciting features planned for the GNOME 2.22 and 2.24 releases, and now that the first GNOME 2.22.0 Beta release is planned for later this week, we have taken another look at the packages set for inclusion and the changes that have actually been made.
olpcnews.com: The purpose of my visit was to see the Elonex One which was launched on Wednesday. I had emailed in advance to check they were OK with me bringing along an XO and an Asus EeePC. Not only were they OK with it, they were delighted to see the other Linux based laptops.
antirez.com: When I saw the 100$ laptop... My first thoughts was cool! this is going to be a huge hit in the developed countries, apart from its future about a cheap laptop for childrens in poor countries.
phoronix.com: Pidgin, the popular IM client once known as GAIM, has flown out of the coop today with a new release. Pidgin 2.4.0 is the first update in about three months, but it brings a number of features.
