Speaking the language of the Web - Building Android apps with Java and XML tools
jjtcomputing.co.uk: Ultimate Edition is an ‘improved’ version of Ubuntu. Unlike Linux Mint, which contains modifications to the source code, Ultimate Edition is simply a lot more packages added to Ubuntu and then made into an ISO using reconstructor.
lunduke.com: After yesterday’s post on how I think Fedora is screwing up royally, I thought I’d follow that up with taking a look at the experiences of someone else.
electricpig.co.uk: So the great moment has arrived. But how do I make the switch? I have horrible memories of struggling with new partitions, running into special bits of Microsoft code designed precisely to make it tough to switch to another operating system … Maybe there is a better way?
softpedia.com: The third Release Candidate build for Firefox 3.5 is on its way. Mozilla repeatedly stressed during the development process of the next iteration of its open source browser that it was aiming to produce a single RC for Firefox 3.5. And fact is that it came extremely close to doing so.
blogs.computerworld: As I pointed out recently, open-source software in schools isn't just a good idea, it's becoming a financial necessity if we're to keep enough teachers for our kids in classrooms. So, it's particular good timing that Sugar Labs and openSUSE have released free Linux distributions expressly designed for education.

linuxsysconfig.com: As you all know Crossover Linux 8.0 was announced a few days ago. New and “exciting” features such as IE7 and Outlook 2007 support are presented as “major development” by the company’s CEO. Sorry, but I have to strongly disagree.
informationweek.com/blog: You might remember Bryan Lunduke from his extremely pointed "Linux Sucks -- Let's Fix It" presentation of a few months back. Now he's aiming fighting words at Fedora over F11, and from that I've gleaned a few larger questions about what is the real role of any given Linux distribution.
toolbox.com/blogs: There are too many times that I have heard this phrase. "Windows is good enough which is why they have the market share." I saw it again today and this time it has flipped the switch between my brain and my fingers.
raiden.net: CentOS is a "Community Enterprise OS", hence it's name. It's designed with the business user in mind, both on the desktop and in the server room. Since the last time we reviewed CentOS, it's under gone some changes, and seen a minor version upgrade to improve a number of features.
taragana.com: Its imperative to have a comprehensive backup and recovery solution that would enable the recovery of Linux servers, helping you to get back to business and minimize the downtime.
tech-no-media.com: There has been a lot of talk about the success or failure of the Linux netbooks recently, to the point that it is now a very controversial topic. I think that it is time to go back to the facts.
techradar.com: Mozilla recently released the second release candidate of Firefox 3.5 and is due to launch the final version before the end of the month. Here's your one-stop guide to the key new features in the latest version.
