blog.linuxtoday.com: Even though I consider myself a fairly advanced Linux user, there are some things in Linux I haven't gotten around to yet. This isn't usually through inability to do something; it's usually a matter of not seeing the need for it. So it is with Compiz.
Mark Shuttleworth: There is (again) absolutely no truth to the rumour that Canonical has done a deal with Microsoft for access to codecs - either in return for money, or for some other quid-pro-quo.
Jim Zemlin: The New York Times reports today a hard rebuke from European Union’s competition commissioner, Neelie Kroes, against Microsoft’s tactics in Europe. Certainly when using any software this matters, but let’s take a closer look at how this advice relates to open source. Evaluate the following statement for accuracy. True or False?
linuxsolutions.fr: The UK UNIX USER Group (UKUUG) looks likely to drop their legal challenge to Microsoft’s controversial international document standard because it doesn’t have the money to see the court case out.
itwire.com: When you think of databases usually MySQL or Oracle or even Microsoft SQL Server come to mind. Yet, object oriented databases have the potential to cut down coding nuts and bolts and speed up app development time – particularly for those migrating to Linux from Windows. Here’s one such compelling SourceForge hosted open source system to do just this.
pcmag.com: Why choose between two operating systems when you can have both in one PC? We show you how to dual-boot Linux and Windows XP in the ASUS EeePC 900.
Mandriva today announces the release of Mandriva Flash 2008 Spring, the new release of its popular bootable distribution on a USB key. This new version uses the new Mandriva Linux 2008 Spring as its base, doubles the key's capacity to 8GB, introduces a new installer which allows you to install Mandriva Linux 2008 Spring to the system's hard disk, and comes in an attractive new white color scheme.
linux-mag.com: All the major distributions including Slackware, Red Hat, SUSE, Gentoo, and Debian have reproduced to the point where the children scarcely look like the parent. Now the children have grown up enough to begin procreating new and exciting distributions of their own for every whim and user type.
linuxjournal.com: One of the biggest arguments used against Linux in grade school level education is that we aren't teaching kids to use the applications they'll use in the "real world". As the Technology Director for a K-12 school district, I've heard that argument many times. After all these years, I still don't buy it.
linuxappfinder.com: I recently installed the KDE4 version of Kubuntu on my laptop using the Wubi installer and was able to start using KWin's desktop effects on my laptop. After installing KDE4.1 beta 1 I started to get curious about battery life.
liquidat.wordpress: One of the most often mentioned concerns at the KDE booth at LinuxTag was the question if Plasma would force the user to have a black panel. While we did have a second machine showing another theme to resolve all doubts it showed that not all users now yet the power of Plasma theming.
techiemoe.com: The last time I looked at PCLinuxOS was version 0.92, which according to DistroWatch was about 3 years ago. I was asked to take a look at it again, so here I go.
raiden.net: About a year ago we reviewed TinyMe when it was still in its beta and test stage. But a lot has happened in the past year, and all of it good. But what makes it so good? Well, in addition to fixing all the bugs and little quirks, TinyMe has become more stable and loads faster than it was in the early days.
blog.davebsd: It has been 41 days since we released GNOME Do 0.4.2, and today I’m honored to present GNOME Do 0.5: “The Fighting 0.5″. Without further ado, here are the main improvements and new features, accompanied by plenty of sexy screenshots.
blogs.ittoolbox: Microsoft has a goal. Apple has a goal. What is Linux's goal? Linux is such a large amoebic entity that it has no clear boundaries. There are no real limits to what Linux can be made to do.
beranger.org: Dear Red Hat, I know it might have been cheaper and definitely shorter this way, and I know your North American users will think you did it right, but it's NOT right!
linux.com: The Linux kernel includes support for performing RAID-1 in software. RAID-1 maintains the same filesystem on two or more disks, so that you can lose all but the last disk and still retain all of your data. This seems wonderful until you consider that an error in RAM, a power supply failure, or another hardware component in the machine can still potentially corrupt your precious data.
jonobacon.org: There has been some discussion recently about the future of GNOME. Although I am an ardent supporter and fanboy around GNOME, and I love the desktop for its simplicity and elegance…GNOME has become the software equivalent of my dad’s comfortable trousers - predictable and reliable.
