desktoplinux.wordpress: In this post, I describe how I compared 4 distros to run on the old family desktop. I’m presently auditioning for a new distro. PCLinuxOS 2007 has been the family favorite for the past year or so.
blog.isecore.net: Linux is Free Software. Generally the average person tends to think of “Linux” as simply one operating system, but it’s rather a family of systems. A few minutes ago I found this (swedish-language) thread about why Linux-distributions have such silly names.
news.cnet.com: Free-to-play games are looking more and more like open source products as commercial entities behind the development and operations figure out ways in which to add value and monetize their user base.
blogs.computerworld: While HP was slow in supporting Linux on the desktop, HP has long supported Linux on the server. HP currently supports RHEL (Red Hat Enterprise Linux), Novell's SLES (SUSE Linux Enterprise Server), Oracle Enterprise Linux and even the community's own Linux, Debian on its server hardware. Now, HP is about to start supporting Ubuntu on its ProLiant server line.
tech.blorge.com: While open source development isn’t as prevalent in the gaming industry as it is elsewhere, there’s still a number of freely available open source games that cater to all types of gaming.
ericsbinaryworld.com/blog: I reviewed Linux Mint 5 Light back in July 2008. Since I wasn’t using VirtualBox at the time, I only tested it as a LiveDVD and that may have been the source of some of my problems testing the software installation. Plus this time I can review the installation process.
dailynews.com: The free Linux operating system doesn't reveal its charms easily, but charms it has. You just have to know how to make the software work for you.
The Ubuntu Weekly Newsletter, Issue #129 for the week of February 8th- February 14th, 2009 is now available. In this Issue: Ubuntu LoCo Teams Meeting, New MOTU’s, Rockin’ LoCo Docs Day, Ubuntu Hug Day, and much more.

artipc10.vub.ac.be: Yesterday, I updated my system at home from Mandriva 2009.0 (with lots of personal backports, such as GNOME 2.24.3) to Mandriva Cooker, which rougly corresponds to beta 1 now.
ivan.fomentgroup.org/blog: First I would like to point out that there are two new Plasma themes on kde-look. Well, at least two *my* new themes. Apart from fixing bugs related to the Qt 4.5, there are some new cool things in Lancelot and its theming mechanism.
downloadsquad.com: I've gotten several comments since I started writing for DownloadSquad from readers that want to know what Firefox theme I'm running in my screenshots. Since I had some spare time on my hands, I decided it was time to put together a selection of my favorites to share.
community.zdnet: Well, after considerable struggle, it has been a successful weekend. I've been trying since the first day that I got my HP 2133 Mini-Note to get Ubuntu 8.10 installed on it. I decided to bite the bullet and use the text based alternate installer.
Linux brings the power of Open Source Unix tools to the S/390 mainframe. All the current versions of standard Unix services may run in a Linux partition gaining the advantages of mainframe hardware.
sdtimes.com: In the earliest days of computers, just about everything could be considered free software. Along the way, software developers change their attitudes and move away from openness toward the proprietary. It was this shift in the hacker culture, as he called it, that eventually led Richard Stallman to strike out on his own in 1983.
kmandla.wordpress: Sixteen megabytes is a pitful amount of memory, and I sometimes have to remind myself of that. And yet these Awesome-based console-application systems are regularly using up less than half of the 12Mb htop says I have left to use. How does it all fit in under 16Mb?
bigbrovar.wordpress: Bluetooth support has always been shaky in gnome. The default bluetooth manager is often very basic and unintuitive. "You cant always have it all” that was my attitude to the whole bluetooth problem till i found out about Blueman.
debaday.debian.net: localepurge allows you to remove unnecessary locale data you have on your system and prevents installing unneeded locales when installing new packages.
