Filed under
HowTos

blog.platinumsolutions.com: Ubuntu works great with my Dell D820 Laptop and had no problems with my sound card, video driver, and power management. I was definitely a happy camper so I thought I'd share how to create a dual boot environment with Ubuntu + XP.

Software

njpatel.blogspot.com: Well there you have it, Awn 0.2 has been released! With over six months since the last release, you'd think we were working on something as complicated as Gnome, but I think there are enough new features to show where the time has gone Wink.

SUSE

ariya.blogspot: I know I should be doing something "useful", but the fresh-from-oven OpenSUSE 10.3 is just too good to skip. Thus, I decided to waste a weekend to try it. In short: it's very solid and attractive, without doubt the best OpenSUSE release so far.

As can be inferred from the manager’s website, ROX-Filer is a project aimed to move the best features of RISC OS onto Linux and Unix platforms. Its small footprint and configurability are its unquestionable hallmarks.

Why did GNUstep never really take off?

Filed under
Software

Luis Villa’s Blog: Having had a good week, I’m playing with toys a little bit today. (Sadly, not enough free time to make it to GNOME Summit.)1 Some notes, forthwith, from Fedora 8 test 3, with a few supplements as well from a month old Ubuntu Tribe CD.2

Kubuntu: Nothing much has changed in 2 years

Filed under
Ubuntu

distrogue.blogspot.com: f you're reading this on Kubuntu, then I honestly feel sorry for you. It's not that I hate KDE (in fact, I love it, even v3.5), it's just how badly misused it is in Kubuntu.

Gentoo

o'reilly onlamp: How many open source relational databases can you name? I can already imagine many of you saying “bulls**t”, what about MySQL and PostgreSQL?” (to name just two), but those are just databases, not relational databases.

These may be naff at resource-hungry Windows apps but can be a great Linux machine for no extra cost. But can you check out any hardware gotchas prior to purchase, and be sure the Penguin will run?
