internetling.com: As promised, today we’ll take a look at the various interesting window managers for the X Window System which aren’t (necessarily) a part of a certain desktop environment (that means Enlightenment DR 17 doesn’t count here people, sorry, please take a look at the desktop environment guide).
zerias.blogspot: If you haven't heard yet, Linus Torvalds got a little vulgar when describing BSD development and attitude. I'm still tossed on whether or not the metaphor Linus used was the best or worst metaphor I've ever heard.
ruminationsonthedigitalrealm.org: Mandriva 2009.0 installs KDE4 with the classical KDE menu, a decision I can only applaud. It isn’t decided yet whether this decision will stand until the final version. The Mandriva Community seems to be running into a tie, as the votes for either the new Kickoff menu or the Classical menu are virtually equal.
linuxgeeksunited.blogspot: We read columns, articles, blogs all the time, telling us where companies should be adopting GNU/Linux, tossing out other OS's and using Open Source software to reap maximum savings.
mozillalinks.org: As announced before, tab switching is getting a dramatic update for Firefox 3.1 in both visual and behavior.
itwire.com: Computing is on the verge of a major paradigm shift with the modern rise in prominence of virtualisation. Fuelled by big corporates interested in the consolidation and energy saving potentials, improvements in virtualisation have hit the point where Linux could be a casualty. Here’s why:
linux.com: There's no dearth of Linux distributions for desktop users or even for running high availability servers. But if you are a do-it-yourself computer user, your choice of Linux distros is fairly limited. You can build Linux from scratch with Linux from Scratch or compile your own set of packages with Gentoo. But if you want a distro that teaches you the basics of Linux as you set it up; is well documented, lightweight, and zippy; and has a dependency-resolving packaging system, you need Arch Linux.
thedullbulb.blogspot: Today we will focus on Ubuntu. I really like Ubuntu. It was the first Linux distro that I used and I really think it is intuitive and very similar to Windows XP. Ubuntu does all the basic things you would expect from an OS and with style.
pcworld.com: Multimedia software maker CyberLink sees a lot of opportunities in the fast-growing netbook segment of the computer market, from online access to files stored on home PCs to multimedia software made for Linux OSs.
linuxinsider.com: AbiWord is an open source word processing program that offers basic functions without getting bogged down with unnecessary features, writes Los Angeles Daily News columnist Steven Rosenberg. While OpenOffice offers a more full-featured alternative to Microsoft Office, AbiWord is slim and loads faster, especially on slow computers.
opensuse.org: There has been a report looking at package management security on various distributions that IMO was rather condensed in its summary report and therefore raised some false alarms for various distributions including openSUSE.
jldugger.livejournal: Nick Ali, author of the Ubuntu Weekly Newsletter (among other things), writes that Ubuntu doesn't get a fair shake in a Pingdom report on update site availability. Microsoft had a measured 100% response to pings, Apple a 99.9%.
technologytales.com: It’s the sort of sight that causes you to fear the worst, an unchanging black screen with a flashing cursor. That was what started greet me in recent days when I tried to fire up a Windows XP guest in VMware Workstation.
debaday.debian.net: If you’re a frequent downloader and comfortable on the command line, then you need to try out aria2. aria2 is a cross platform download utility, similar to graphical download managers except that it uses less system resources.
siliconrepublic.com: Microsoft Windows remains the standard operating system (OS) for most personal computers throughout the world but advocates for the open source Linux-based OS Ubuntu are pushing its benefits for personal, educational and organisational uses, not least because it is free and community developed.
linuxloop.com: Like it or not, one of the most important features of any Microsoft Office alternative is being able to read Microsoft Office files. With the recently released OpenOffice 3.0 Beta adding support for importing Office 2007 files, I decided to test.
