Richard Stallman: To pay so much attention to Bill Gates' retirement is missing the point. What really matters is not Gates, nor Microsoft, but the unethical system of restrictions that Microsoft, like many other software companies, imposes on its customers.
stormy-subbu.blogspot: Well It is not about which is a better OS overall, but which suited me better. PCLinuxOS(/Ripper Gang) did a really nice job in giving a very polished setup and collecting very good packages for PCLinuxOS 2007.
web4beta.com: As a mentioned in my previous post I spent a little time last night installing PCLINUXOS on my laptop. I installed the MiniMe version of the distro, the Live CD of which weighs in at just over 200MB. It’s meant to be just enough to get get everything up and running so you can then, through ATP or Synaptic, install just the software you want.
linuxtoday.com: There has been a lot of vitriol lofted towards the KDE 4 development folks lately, with calls for forking and the questioning of the need for users getting lobbed back and forth between the two sides of the argument. Emotions are running high, and there seems to be no way of resolving the issues that have gotten people so upset.
practical-tech.com: Recently though several KDE developers came right out and asked, “Does KDE even need (certain) users?” Unrau’s opinion was quickly seconded by another KDE developer, Jason Harris, who said, “KDE, like many other open-source projects, doesn’t really need users at all. In the end though, KDE has ended up with at least one less developer.
isriya.com: This story has begun by a blog post from a man called Steven J. Vaughan-Nichols. The reason why I don’t use KDE is obvious: Paradigm. (or perspective, way of thinking, approach).
junauza.com: Because Pardus 2007 left a lasting impression on me, I have been eagerly waiting for its next release. So when the stable version of Pardus 2008 came out just recently, I never hesitated to try and test this promising distro from Turkey once again.
ostatic.com: I use a ton of software applications, but a major portion of the time I spend using a computer goes to writing, and creating documents. In this post, I'll cover six free applications--five of them open source and one freeware app--that can help you create eye-catching documents.
linux.com: Easy PDF editing is coming to OpenOffice.org, but you'll have to be patient for a few months. Recently posted to the OpenOffice.org Extensions site, the Sun PDF Import extension (SPI) is only in beta, and only works with recent developer builds of OpenOffice.org 3.0, which is scheduled for September release.
phoronix.com: A week ago we looked at the brand-new ATI Radeon HD 4850 graphics card under Linux. This graphics card launch was unlike any in ATI's history. Today we're publishing our complete review of the new ATI Radeon HD 4870 512MB as well as delivering additional benchmarks from the Radeon HD 4850 under Linux, of course.
tectonic.co.za: Lately, there has been quite some bitching on the fringes of the KDE project about KDE4 and the direction it takes. Some people go as far as saying: “Give us back our old desktop!” I beg to differ.
linuxplanet.com: Sidux is a new Debian derivative that's still just a baby, born in January 2007. Sidux announced a brand-new release on June 26, Sidux 2008-02, so we're going to kick the tires and take it for a drive, and see what sets it apart from other children of Debian.
labyrinth.org: Well I know compared to most people I am writing down my opinion of the latest OpenSUSE release a little late but…I wanted to try it out a bit, kick the tires before I put anything on here about it. And I am certainly glad I did.
inatux.com/blog: Fedora 9 with default installation, starts you with the Gnome Desktop Environment, but all of us here at InaTux personally prefer KDE. So, we went through the installation process once more and changed "Customize later" to "Customize now."
linux.com: Kismet is a wireless "detector, sniffer, and intrusion detection system," and one of the growing list of essential open source tools for computer network security professionals. Kismet runs on any POSIX-compliant platform, including Windows, Mac OS X, and BSD, but Linux is the preferred platform.
freesoftwaremagazine.com: Home Automation is anything that your home does for you automatically to make living there more enjoyable or productive. It covers many areas, including remote and timed control of lights and electrical home appliances, distributed media services, and communication. In this introductory article, I will carry out a high-level review of a number of these projects to see what is already available.
opsamericas.com: Ok, so you know that currently SLED (SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop) 10 defaults to GNOME as the desktop, a move that garnered a few cranky folks from the KDE [KC]amp. openSUSE 11.0 doesn’t force such a choice, you have several options, none is selected by default.
theinquirer.net: That Xandros is preloaded on Asus Eee PC netbooks is perhaps its only real support, and that might be the only reason this acquisition happened, instead of both of these unevenly integrated and struggling, third-tier wanna-be consumer Linux distributions simply failing.
