linux.com: Our colleague Joe Barr sometimes described himself as a doddering old geek. Many knew him as a Linux evangelist; others knew him from his ham radio activities. And those of us who worked with Joe knew him in all of his sometime irascible, often funny moods. Joe was always one of our favorite people, and we are devastated to report that he died at home, unexpectedly, last night.
ostatic.com: After a long search, the Linux Foundation has found its community manager for its LSB Developer Network. The Linux Foundation has tapped Brian Proffitt, longtime managing editor of Linux Today, Enterprise Linux Today, AllLinuxDevices, LinuxPR, and JustLinux.
theregister.co.uk: The world of open source gets the equivalent of an Oscar awards ceremony later this month when code-host SourceForge announces the winners of its second-annual vote on the community's top projects.
techworld.com.au/blog: Two years. Can you believe it's been two years to the day since IBM first released a native Lotus Notes client for Linux? Where did version 7.x go in that time? Pretty much nowhere. With an installation process like this, I wonder why.
beranger.org: There was a recent discussion on the French Mandriva forum, about a possible free LTS version of Mandriva. Someone mentioned the Corporate Desktop and Corporate Server line — a paying one, à la RHEL and SLED/SLES. The only problem is that Mandriva Corporate Desktop is dead. It was killed using a silencer though.

computeractive.co.uk: Miniature notebooks, which do all the jobs of full-sized ones but with slightly less power, seem to be the order of the day in 2008. The One looks smart, with a white case and shiny black bezel around the 9in 1,024x600 pixel screen.
linux.com: SliTaz is a new micro GNU/Linux live distribution designed to run from RAM (a recommended minimum of 128MB) and installable to a hard drive or USB device. The current version, SliTaz 1.0, weighs in at a light 24.8MB and provides a nice selection of applications that run on a lightweight desktop.
adventuresinopensource.blogspot: Well it's review time again and today's candidate is Linux Mint 5. I say today's candidate but really I should say this months candidate as I ended up spending a lot more time on Mint than I'd planned. I really liked Mint 4 and gave it a rave review last year, so this new version would have to work hard to impress me, after 3 weeks with it on and off how does it stack up? Here goes...
Whether you are online or offline, freedom matters. Like good health you never think about it or miss it until it is under threat or actually gone. If you love freedom, you probably love free software and it has given us some terrific tools with which to defend freedom. In this article I will give an overview of some of the available resources (Freenet, Wikileaks and Tor) to protect dissident opinion, facilitate whistle blowing and promote the safe and anonymous development of free software.
codingexperiments.com: “Foresight is a desktop operating system featuring an intuitive user interface and a showcase of the latest desktop software” The question is, is this the case? Does it fulfill its goal? As it turns out, the July issue of Linux Format shipped with it a copy of Foresight Linux 2.0. On a whim, I tried that out.
opera.com: We are still doing polishing on Kestrel and have some more crashfixes etc for you all to play with. Please look for regressions since 9.50
raiden.net: One thing I hate above almost anything else is when a vendor tells you what you can and can't do with your software. That drives me bonkers. So what brought on this little bout of ranting and bitterness?
softpedia.com: Mandriva announced last night the second alpha release of Mandriva 2009, which brings KDE4 (default desktop), GNOME 2.23.4, and support for the newest NVIDIA and ATI/AMD video cards. The development cycle of Mandriva 2009 will continue until the final release in early October, 2008. With the 2009 edition.
compiz-fusion.org/~cyberorg: …some useful some not so, these are the new plugins available in compiz-fusion-plugins-git packages from openSUSE Build Service repository.
glatzor.de: In which package can I translate this message/dialog? What is the difference between these two po files? How can I access the translation page of a package in a faster way compared to clicking through the whole website tree or manipulating the url? Where can I get the automatically updated language packs?
arstechnica.com: Linux distributor Canonical is putting a price tag on packaged Ubuntu installation CDs and making them available for purchase on shelves in retail stores. The question, however, is whether the package delivers enough additional value to justify the cost. The answer, according to Canonical, is the ValuSoft startup support.
jaysonrowe.wordpress: One thing that does irritate me is bickering between different camps in the Linux community. Each thinks that their distribution is the best, and should be used by every living, breathing and eating human being – ’nuff said. I really feel that this is a dangerous attitude, and I feel that this is an attitude that is going to continue to hurt Linux over all rather than help.
toolbox.com/blogs: Whenever I have conversations with people about windows and Linux they always ask me what is so good about Linux. They see something that looks pretty and gives them a wow factor but it is not enough. I can talk about Linux's superior multitasking and hardware support or security against virus's and spyware and I get the gazed donut look in pretty short order.
