blogs.computerworld: Vista has been, to be kind, a flop. For several months now, Microsoft has been hinting that the next version of Windows, Windows 7, will be the answer. I'm beginning to wonder, though, if Windows 7 will be little more than Vista rehashed.
celettu.wordpress: There’s no good GTK burning application. Well, at least for me there isn’t. I don’t know what it is, but neither Brasero, nor Gnomebaker or Nautilus CD Burning work well with my Philips CD burner. Enter: Recorder.
mashable.com: The market of applications managing various Internet-related tasks is divided generally into three parts: Windows-based, Mac OS X-compatible, and Linux-friendly. Some function across all platforms, or perhaps the most mainstream and consumer-centric of the two. We’re going to do Tux a solid today and see what’s up in the land of “Net apps” to save you from having to search the open source galaxy yourself.
arstechnica.com: Earlier this week, we looked at a collaborative project by Nokia and Mozilla which aims to port Firefox to the Qt development toolkit. Nokia's decision to fund Firefox development despite already having a strong investment in WebKit raises some intriguing questions.
raiden.net: One of the things that Microsoft has been silently beating Linux over the head with for the past couple of years is that, since Linux works so well on older, and lower end PC's, it is an inferior, obsolete, and outdated OS. I find FUD like this to be a bit annoying, as the inverse is true of Windows.
community.zdnet.co.uk/blog: A new Debian GNU/Linux Update was released a few weeks ago - well, actually one and a half new updates, to be precise. I just got around to giving it a try, and I'm pleased and impressed.
junauza.com: The latest series of the K Desktop Environment now utilizes Plasma, a new desktop and panel user interface tool. If you want to further enhance the look of your KDE 4 desktop, I have here a list of some of the most beautiful Plasma themes available
penguinpetes.com: Summer's going too fast, man. The kids are almost back in school, already, which makes this the perfect time for the grown-ups to huddle back to their simulated DOS directory and play at some goofy, childish fun. So once again, we crank up DOSBox and grab random stuff off the abandonware buffet. Sometimes for nostalgia, sometimes for thrills, and most of the time just for the endorphin rush from the masochism.
vizzzion.org: Last night Nvidia released a new beta version of their binary driver. This one has some new features, where especially a couple of RENDER pathes are now hardware accelerated. I've installed the driver on my desktop machine on a rather clean OpenSuse 11 and a 7600GS and tweaked it.
freesoftwaremagazine.com: I’m not sure why it bothers me: I use the word “Free” when I’m talking about “Free Software”, and “Open” when I mean “Open source”. I’m very particular about my words, that way. But that’s just me. I don’t expect another religion to follow the rules of my own, or vice-versa.
linux.com: According to its past and present marketing, Foresight Linux has three claims to fame: Its user-friendliness, its use of the Conary package management system, and its role as a showcase for the latest in GNOME. In practice, its latest 2.0.4 version is not more user-friendly than any other GNOME-based distribution -- if anything, it is slightly less so.
tokoe-kde.blogspot: Some weeks ago, one of our customers asked for a nice feature that was requested 4 years ago. He wanted an option to set a maximum size for the users trash like you can do on Windows or MacOSX to avoid situations where the trash fills 50% of your hard disc.
gutsblow.blogspot: I would like to discuss about it's potential I see coming in the future. Though it is based on Debian Linux, Ubuntu was first released in 2004. The progress it achieved in four years is really phenominal. So let me take you a a brief overview of how things changed so significantly.
softwarefreedom.org: The Software Freedom Law Center (SFLC), provider of pro-bono legal services to protect and advance Free/Libre and Open Source Software (FOSS), today published a guide to effective compliance with the GNU General Public License (GPL) and related licenses.
softpedia: Ever since the release of OpenGEU 8.04 Beta a few days ago, I felt I needed to see for myself what it brought new and to take a closer look at the praised E17 Desktop shell.
ubuntuproductivity.com: If Ubuntu Linux had not won me over yet then it certainly has now. Ubuntu Netbook Remix is a fantastic set of tools for running Linux on small screens and boosting productivity in a limited workspace.
Today we have hundreds of distributions out available. Ubuntu, Fedora, openSUSE, Debian and many more. Many of them are based of each other. Ubuntu for instance is based on Debian, while OpenSUSE is based on Fedora. Despite the fact that they are all under the name of "Linux", most of these Operating Systems are leading their own development.
linux-foundation.org: The fifth Open Voices podcast installation features a conversation with Mozilla Chairman, Mitchell Baker, and the Linux Foundation Executive Director, Jim Zemlin.
