linux.com: The GIMP -- the GNU Image Manipulation Program -- is one of the flagships of free software. On October 1 the project released version 2.6, with many new and improved features. Most of the user-visible features are just polish; the real changes are lurking under the hood.
blogs.computerworld: Adobe Flash is still a proprietary program and I, and a lot of other open-source people, wish that it wasn't. That said, the latest Flash Player 10 on Linux is a lot faster than the last version and it opens up the doors to a lot of Web-based video content.
brajeshwar.com: Irrespective of the operating system, intrusion is one of the key concerns for computers connected to a network. Firewalls, as a matter of fact provide a resistance to this, if not a fool proof protection.
linux.com: It is good practice to use a different password for each Web site you need to log in to. Good passwords tend to be long and contain a wide selection of characters. That can make remembering all your passwords difficult. But you can make things easier on yourself by storing passwords for various Web sites in an encrypted file on your computer.
hehe2.net: When the compositing capabilities of Spiftacity merged into the Metacity trunk, it caused a fair bit of stir among GNOME users. Included in version 2.21.5 of GNOME, though hidden from casual users, the compositing showed a lot of promise but remained just something to play around with.
Glyn Moody: Last week I noted that the release of OpenOffice.org 3.0 seems to mark an important milestone in its adoption, judging at least by the healthy – and continuing – rate of downloads. But in many ways, success teaches us nothing; what is far more revealing is failure.
opera.com: Hot on the heels of 9.60, we had to release Opera 9.61 to address problems in Opera Link. Alone, each issue we discovered was miniscule and shouldn't have caused any problems, but together, and coupled with some server issues, it turned out to be more serious than we thought.
dthomasdigital.wordpress: I was told today that if I’m lucky my budget will only be cut by 10%. Being that I work for State government you would think that I would be more worried than I am. Then why do I think this is a great opportunity for me?
Imagine that your football team wins the championship the last years and it has completely crashed all competition. Would you be happy with the way your team played with no competition at all? It would surely play crappy, because it wouldn't need to try any harder.

computerworld.com: OpenOffice.org 3.0 was downloaded 3 million times in its first week, with about 80% of the downloads by Windows users, an official with the group said in a blog post on Monday.
mandriva.com: In order to bring Linux to new users and present the new features and technologies available in Mandriva Linux 2009, Mandriva is mobilizing its network of Linux User Groups (LUGs) to coordinate a worldwide Installfest on November 22nd, November 2008.
earthweb.com: You can categorize most GNU/Linux distributions as either community or commercial. Community-based distributions like Debian, Fedora, or CentOS are maintained largely by volunteers and donations of services or money, while commercial distributions like Suse, Red Hat, or Xandros are backed by a company and compete directly against proprietary operating systems such as Windows and OS X.
law.com: In his highly acclaimed best seller, The World is Flat, Thomas Friedman hails open-sourcing as one of 10 "flatteners" of the world. Nevertheless, many enterprises have included open-source code in their proprietary software without fully understanding the risks.
blogs.zdnet.com: With only ten days to go until Ubuntu 8.10 is released I decided to take a look at the latest beta to see what the new release has to offer. Oddly enough, “Intrepid Ibex” feels more like a service pack to me than a new release.
itwire.com: At a time when economic problems dog the world, people's thoughts generally turn to saving. It is not surprising, therefore, to find many technology writers beginning to recognise that GNU/Linux and other open source software can reduce the amount that companies spend on IT.
eeextra.com: Every major distribution generates a lot of hype at launch, and the new Mandriva 2009 did not depart from the rule. After completing the installation, I have used the new system for a few days and would like to share my first impressions.
polishlinux.org: Cheap notebooks with preinstalled Linux distributions conquer Western markets. Polish hardware distributors did notice it and one of them launched a new subnotebook in the Polish market. They call it: Airis I-Design IL-1 Nanobook.
blogs.techrepublic.com: Sooner or later, you’re going to get the urge to switch distributions — maybe for a change of pace or maybe out of more practical considerations. Here’s a look at some of the most common reasons users feel compelled to make that jump.
eweek.com: The OpenOffice.org 3.0 desktop database application offers new features that make it better than previous versions, but it still lags behind what Microsoft Access offers. Among the key concerns is OpenOffice.org Base's limited filed support for Microsoft Access database files.
