serverwatch.com: Many see Linux as the hero that can save us — save us from continuous hardware upgrades with each major software revision, confusing licensing programs, hidden costs and fees and vendor lock-in. With that said, is Linux our hero? The obvious answer is yes, but is it a true hero or just the hero of the month?
masshightech.com: Just two weeks after announcing layoffs and salary reductions, One Laptop per Child is donating 5,000 of its XO laptops to Palestinian children in the Gaza strip.
dedoimedo.com: In this article, I will show you a pair of highly useful programs that can help you backup and synchronize your data: Karen's Power Tools Replicator for Windows and Unison File Synchronizer for Linux.
news.cnet.com: It's nice to read what open-source vendors think of open source: it's easy, cheap, and quite possibly the cure for cancer. (That last one is my personal hope.)
Also: Intalio planning '8 to 10' open-source acquisitions
bits.blogs.nytimes: If the French National Assembly gets its way, the open-source Linux operating system will take over the governments of Europe, seizing on a weak economy to displace Windows.
cfergeau.blogspot: The good news is that I started working at Mandriva 2 weeks ago. I'll be working on the core distro to (partially) replace pixel which means I'll hack on urpmi and bootloaders among tons of other things.
scott.sherrillmix: I installed OpenSuse on my work computer and I’ve been really happy with it so far. Recently, OpenSuse came out with a new version 11.1 so I figured I would upgrade. Since this was my first time updating, I turned to google and the first result for “upgrade opensuse 11.1″ is this page about zypper. It sure sounds easy.
technewsworld.com: Maybe the biggest adjustment one has to make to use a netbook is the physical tininess of the keyboard and touchpad. HP's Mini 1000 makes good use of a small space and delivers a passable keyboard, but the touchpad still puts the buttons off to the side, which is much less comfortable.
blogs.computerworld: I was reminded yesterday that just because I know something, doesn't mean that everyone knows it. This time it was some friends who really didn't like their current fonts in Ubuntu and OpenSolaris respectively. So, I suggested that they try Red Hat's open-source Liberation fonts. To my surprise, it turns out they didn't know about them.
linuxgeeksunited.blogspot: While we love to hammer at proprietary companies like Microsoft for "dumbing down" the interaction for users, it's something of a shock when we realize that some Linux distros are doing the exact same thing.
raiden.net: For those looking for yet another reason to switch to Linux, I offer you this simple fact. CD's and DVD's burned on Linux tend to be processed faster, are more stable, better quality.
toolbox.com/blogs/locutus: In these hard times I am seeing businesses dropping like flies. Even the big boys are talking about and acting on the laying off of thousands of workers. As always in these sort of situations what is a disaster for some is an opportunity for others. What is one mans pain is another's pleasure so to speak.
computerworlduk.com/blogs: Interoperability has always been at the heart of the Open Solutions Alliance. There was, it is true, a slight blurring of the focus, as reflected in the name: Open *Solutions* Alliance, not Open *Source* Alliance.
therantzone.blogspot: So I finally made the plunge. I've long wanted to be part of that geeky elite who broke from the crowd, stepped aside from their fellow computer lemmings and took a different plunge - instead of off the cliff, but into an alien and poorly understood (by the masses) computer operating system - Unix.
itwire.com: For the last four years, the pony-tailed Jonathan Corbet, kernel developer and editor, has presented what he calls the kernel report at Australia's national Linux conference.
apcmag.com: Want to know what happens if you suggest a way to fix Linux that might solve a major difficulty, but also introduce new problems? To quote Linus Torvalds: " I laugh in your face!"
oneopensource.it: Daniel Holbach works for Canonical where is involved in the Ubuntu Community, taking care the relationship with the MOTU team, the Ubuntu developers. Daniel gave us an interview where he speaks about his own work.
computerworld.com: It's one of those perennial age-old battles that can never be resolved. Coke or Pepsi? Chocolate or vanilla? Linux or Windows?
thelinuxblog.com: CD Ripping with Linux doesn’t have to be the labor intensive task that it once was. No longer do we have the days of writing a hundred character command to rip a CD with the perfect options. Here are some utilities aimed at making your life of ripping your collection of CD’s to a digital format you can actually use.
news.bbc.co.uk: The secret to a more secure and cost effective government is through open source technologies and products. The claim comes from Scott McNealy, a co-founder of Sun Microsystems.
