cybernet: I was just over at the OpenOffice site browsing through some of their marketing materials to see if there was anything interesting. I came across a presentation and it walked through some of the most notable features that are expected to be released in the next big OpenOffice milestone.
PCWorld: This week Microsoft Corp said it would patch Windows to reduce the risk of a new kind of Web-based security vulnerability, but security researchers say that other operating systems are probably at risk too.
Serdar Yegulalp: After reading colleague Alexander Wolfe's piece about a Linux distro called "Vixta" that apes the look and feel of Windows Vista, I confess to having mixed feelings about the whole thing. Mostly negative ones.
pinderkent.blogsavy.com: Kubuntu 7.10 RC was announced as available several days ago. While other articles will no doubt focus on the many benefits that Kubuntu 7.10 will bring, I’d like to look forward into the future. Namely, this is because of the upcoming release of KDE 4, which is currently planned for December 11, 2007.
bloggernews.net: I have spent the last week in Windows hell, I have been the victim of virus writers, and indeed a victim of Microsoft themselves, I believe they call the program “Windows Genuine (DIS)advantage”. When I saw the Press Release for Linspire I was skeptical to say the least. Generally speaking Linux requires a PHD in Astro Physics just to log in. It then requires a double PHD just to browse a web site.
torgodevil.com: Gutsy FINAL isn’t due out until October 18th, but they’ve released a “Release Candidate” version that’s probably going to be the final version baring any major fuckmuppetry. Since the command to upgrade was LITERALLY one line of short code, I figured “What the hell?
linux.com: On October 11, 2005, proprietary software maker Xara announced its plans to open the source code to its flagship vector graphics package Xara Xtreme, and with the help of community developers port it to Linux. Today, two years later, the project is stagnant and on the verge of irrelevance, primarily because the company couldn't figure out how to work with the open source community.
jensonsblog.blogspot: These are some various linux/unix problems I've encountered over the years, but which I was not able to find a solution for online. Hopefully this will save you the trouble I had.
ubuntu.com: Today we soldier on to Desktop Effects with Compiz Fusion. It can be safely said that few features are as keenly desired as Desktop Effects. Ever since Compiz was announced XXX years ago, users and developers have been playing with the bling-tastic effects and wondering when it will hit a desktop near them.
matt asay: Why sue two companies with nonexistent desktop businesses when Microsoft provides the biggest potential jackpot of all? (After all, this same company sued and settled with Apple earlier this year.) Unless, of course, it is Microsoft funding the whole thing?
aspir8or.com: Having read that PCLinuxOS had taken over the leaderboard from Ubuntu at Distrowatch as the most downloaded distro, I was keen to try it out. PCLinuxOS2007 is a solid and eyecatching option and it’s easy to see why it’s battling with Ubuntu for most downloaded status at Distrowatch.
itbusiness.ca: Freemind is a free mind mapping application written in Java that will help anyone who plans projects, for example: developers, writers, conference presenters, and students. Beyond planning, it can be used to assist decision making, organize information, and aid problem solving.
Linux Today: For the record, (and I realize that I might be opening myself to calls of "naive") I am not 100 percent convinced that this pioneering patent infringement lawsuit is a direct result of Microsoft's planning.
junauza.blogspot.com: A few days ago, Ubuntu announced the Release Candidate version 7.10 of Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Edubuntu, Gobuntu, and Xubuntu codenamed "Gutsy Gibbon". I downloaded Xubuntu Gutsy RC right away to see what’s up with the new version. I then tested it to find out if it’s compatible enough with the old laptop. So after playing with the Gibbon, here’s my quick assessment.
kdedevelopers: So I replaced Kubuntu with openSUSE 10.3. All I can say is wow. I couldn't follow its development as I did with previous releases and tested only after the final version appeared. First I upgraded my desktop from 10.2 and it wasn't a pleasure as it made the system unbootable and I had to fix using a rescue console. But after having it running I was quite satisfied with it.
