FOSSwire: Hard drives are fragile and complex devices that do not have an infinite life span. Modern hard drives can however tell you quite a bit about how they’re doing and show you some statistics about themselves.

linux.com: In the last two months I've been traveling a lot. During the same period my main desktop computer went belly up. I would have been in trouble without rsync at my disposal -- but thanks to my regular use of this utility, my data (or most of it, anyway) was already copied offsite just waiting to be used.
tectonic: In May this year Microsoft's Bill Gates showed off his expensive touch-sensitive table called Surface. Now the Linux world has a similar project under development and has released videos of it in action.

simplyjat.blogspot.com: This is one really good themed distribution. I like the fact that distributions bring just more than technology to user, they bring an experience with them. It just takes a small amount of time to, change the wallpaper, choose a good icon set, customize menu a little bit, its just awesome.
The Linux Movement: So I just installed Screenlets 0.0.8. I decided to get it up and running cause my old version of Screenlets was very broken and had me super frustrated and it just wouldn't work anymore.

linux-watch: Intellectual property may be off the table, for now, but it sure seems like Red Hat and Microsoft are still dancing around coming to some kind of partnership relationship.
phoronix: While the Avivo driver doesn't yet contain 3D functionality or support a number of features found in the official fglrx driver and the community Radeon driver, it is making steady progress despite its age. As we have begun to receive messages from those interested in this driver wondering about the performance capabilities, we have carried out a brief GtkPerf test.
