cnet.com: "[Insert year here] is the year of the Linux desktop!" That has been the Linux community's refrain since at least 2001. Yet it never comes true.
linuxcanuck.wordpress: “From each according to his ability. To each according to his need.” The above is often given as the socialist credo. However, it is much older than socialism. It actually appears in the Bible in the book of Acts. How many times have you seen Linux websites ask for donations?
This tutorial shows how you can set up a Linux Mint 6 (Felicia) desktop that is a full-fledged replacement for a Windows desktop, i.e. that has all the software that people need to do the things they do on their Windows desktops.
itwire.com: An article has come out claiming (yet again) that 2009 will be the year of Linux, and bases this prediction on the fact that low power ARM processors will be in netbooks which won’t have enough power to run Windows, but then says these new netbooks will be geared to “web only” applications which suits Linux perfectly.
techiemoe.com: Although technically an off-shoot of Mepis Linux (which is in itself an offshoot of Debian, then Ubuntu, now Debian again I think) AntiX bears little visual resemblance to its parent.
heise-online.co.uk: More than 500 of the commits in the main development branch for 2.6.28 alter the code in the Video 4 Linux/DVB subsystem, offering several new drivers and numerous improvements – for example a gspca driver for the ALi M5602 chip and a major update for the t613 gspca driver. During configuration, it is now possible to select which of the gspca subdrivers will be compiled later.
meandubuntu.wordpress: Another look at a non-Ubuntu distro … this time it is Gentoo!
kev009.com: I’ve heard the comparison between Linux and other UNIX like OSes a few times in the past. Of course it is a bit hard to compare “Linux” - which is a kernel - and the others which most often are complete operating systems. Many times they even share a lot of GNU userland tools, so I will disregard userland.
informationweek.com: It sounded like a wild hook for a story, to put it mildly: In 2009, it is said, Linux will ship on more PCs than Windows. So I sat down with Jim Zemlin of the Linux Foundation to explain his reasoning behind such a statement.
informationweek.com: GNU guru Richard Stallman sent me an e-mail the other day complaining that we erred by saying that the Free Software Foundation, of which he's president, promotes open source software. "We have never supported the idea of 'open source' because that idea denies the importance of users' freedom," he writes.
techiemoe.com: Linux Mint is a spin-off of Ubuntu with some different visual polish and the inclusion of *gasp* useful multimedia codecs. I've been impressed by it in the past, so as you can imagine this release had a lot to live up to.
freesoftwaremagazine.com: Some of us will find some kind of alleged spare time on our hands over the next few weeks. Certainly, there’s often some kind of break from “work” over the festive season.
blog.mandriva.com: We are pleased to announce you the launch, by January ‘09, of a world wide Mandriva Community Steering Committee whose main targets will be to:
linux.com: If Parkinson's Law for computers holds true, then no matter how much disk space you have, it will get used up. If you're already feeling a pinch, consider using a disk space analyzer tool to see what's eating your space.
dedoimedo.com: In this article, I'm going to present a whole variety of Linux games, across a range of genres. I'm going to review several titles in detail, complete with screenshots and grades.
raiden.net: One of the things I've found that new users tend to have trouble with is disk partitioning. Even some professional computer repairman have issues with it. That's why I was glad the day I stumbled onto Gparted. But that had its issues. That's where Parted Magic is so nice.
heise-online.co.uk: It's not just the audio drivers which have seen important changes during the second half of the development phase for 2.6.28 – there have also been significant developments relating to the various architectures supported by Linux, and in virtualisation technologies and memory management.
itwire.com: Contrary to some recent reports, senior managers at Acer and other leading vendors have confirmed that Microsoft Windows XP now dominates the emerging sub-notebook market with more than 90% of new sales.
