theinquirer.net: BUILDING YOU OWN computer has gone beyond nailing a few off-the-shelf components together and overclocking the RAM with the announcement that Via will be offering CAD files of its Openbook laptop to anyone who's interested.

workswithu.com: Over the years, I’ve developed a generalized theory about the relative cost of getting things done in Windows versus that of Linux, and as something of a corollary, the reason a lot of people say Linux is too hard, or “not ready for the desktop.”
abzone.be: Years ago I already played a bit with Linux (It was Redhat 5.0 on my 386). At that time I thought the operating system wasn't yet ready for the desktop. Things changed when Ubuntu 5.04 was released. So then I started searching to a nice and user-friendly lightweight distribution.

Welcome to this year's 3rd issue of DPN, the newsletter for the Debian community. Steve McIntyre sent a new Bits from the DPL mail. A serious issue in Debians OpenSSL package has been fixed recently. Debian is discussing about an archive strucure for huge packages.
gregdek.livejournal: The problem: if you don't actually have a physical XO unit, it can be a real bear to get a version of Sugar up and running. It's been possible for a while to run Sugar under emulation, but if you don't quite understand the right incantations, that can be pretty tricky as well. The solution: a customized Live Image based on Fedora 9.
celettu.wordpress: I want to draw some attention to a hidden gem I’ve discovered not too long ago: EmelFM2, a wonderful two-pane view lightweight file manager. Personally, I need two panes. Everything I download goes into a directory in my /home, unsorted, to check them out. Two-pane managers are great for this.
liquidat.wordpress: KDE4Daily, a virtual machine image of KDE 4 with daily updates was released for KDE 4.1. This gives anyone the opportunity to test the newest KDE 4.1 sanely inside a virtual machine.
blue-gnu.biz: Jeff Moe is a 37 year old self-employed father. Better known as jebba, he is the main developer behind the 100% Free distribution BLAG (for BLAG Linux And GNU). He is also leading a couple of other Free software projects. He kindly agreed to give Blue GNU an interview.
lawyersweekly.ca: Many open source licences are only two or three paragraphs long and read more like a manifesto than a traditional software licence. The simple but unorthodox nature of open source licences, along with the fact that the software is provided “free,” has lulled many into a false sense that these licences must surely be unenforceable and that the use and redistribution of open source software will have no consequences.
Josh Saddler: In the first article of this series, I test-drove three lightweight distros: Fluxbuntu, TinyMe, and SliTaz. I took Linux Mint 4.0 Fluxbox Community Edition for a spin yesterday. How did the second Ubuntu-based distro do?
channelinsider.com: Late last month, Ubuntu 8.04 arrived on the scene, right on time, right on its six-month refresh cycle and readily available via a simple ISO image file download. While that may have been big news for the Linux community, the question remains, what if any impact will this latest release have on mainstream computer users?
saleem-khan.blogspot: I am PCLinuxOS KDE fan, I like slim and customized installation and desktop. Openbox is a small and configurable windows manager. TinyMe has adopted this small and fast windows manager.
hertenberger.co.za: My usual euphoria at running Linux on any machine I can lay my hands on has been radically diminished. As geeks and fanboys, we are constantly thriving to run the latest and greatest. If a new distribution is made available, we can’t wait to download the ISO, burn it to a disc and install. Primarily, my disappointment is directed at the release of new kernels.
gamasutra.com: With the release of Windows Vista, which has had some much-publicized issues (whether press-exaggerated or not) of late, we wondered whether it might be ushering in more of of a Linux renaissance. That’s why we thought now might be a good time to have a chat with Bob Zimbinksi, who has run the Linux Gaming Tome for around nine years now.
linuxjournal.com: apt-get, up2date, yum, pkgtool, dpkg, rpm -- we have lots of ways to avoid compiling programs. For the most part, I don't think that it's because we don't like to compile programs, but rather because most of the modern package management tools take care of dependancies, versioning, etc.
Matt Asay: A friend called me on Friday to ask what I thought about Novell. "Does it have a chance?" he asked? The answer is increasingly, "Yes."
itwire.com: Why would anyone try to introduce an operating system into the existing glut unless it pays off in spades? What can a new entrant give us that the multitude of Linux distributions, the Mac OSX and old, hoary Windows hasn't?
linux.com: Recently, I wrote a review of the note-taking application Tomboy. Though I find Tomboy exceptionally useful, I had a minor issue with the inability to create new notebooks from within a note. Within hours of the review appearing on Linux.com, Boyd Timothy, one of the app's developers mentioned in the article's comments that my idea had merit and said he would add the feature to an upcoming build. True to his word, he did.
