usalug-org.blogspot: It is difficult for me to say that these are my four favorite distributions, period, without any qualifications. On the Ubuntu project alone, I am always torn between the XFCE based Xubuntu derivative and the KDE based Kubuntu derivative, and the 8.04 release is no exception.
linuxplanet.com: HP's entry into the sub-Mini-Notebook arena comes in the form of the HP 2133, a sleek-looking, brushed aluminum finished, lightweight but well built beauty. You can see the attention to detail in the engineering when you first open it up.
- Movin' on Up
- openSUSE is my new Ubuntu
- OpenSuSE disappointments
reddevil62-techhead.blogspot: I CAME quite late to the Fluxbox party, and now I am here I wish I had arrived earlier. Fluxbox is a lightweight window manager for the X window system used by Linux distributions. When I say “lightweight”, I mean it is not resource-hungry, so If you like your desktop cluttered with icons and shortcuts, or enjoy fancy 3D, Compiz-driven eye candy, then Fluxbox may not be for you.
cookingwithlinux.com: I was first introduced to Linux in 1998, when it was, perhaps, entering “puberty”. When I was introduced to Linux, I was interested in learning about it. In those days, Linux was harder to use and if you didn't have a love of computers you might have given up. Linux has come a long way since then. Since I wanted more control of my system, I was interested in Gentoo.
jonreagan.wordpress: In a recent article published on CodingExperiments.com, it was noticed that the search term “Ubuntu” was coming closer to passing the term “Linux” on Google’s search engine. Many wondered why and several complained that Ubuntu was becoming “Linux.” So, why is this? Here’s why:
serverwatch.com: Computer filesystems are a surprisingly passionate topic. You can't get anyone excited about Emacs vs. Vi anymore, but start comparing filesystems and you'll have a fast and furious debate in no time. The current dominant filesystems for Linux are Ext2/3, ReiserFS, JFS and XFS.
itwire.com: There are some idiots I've encountered in my time but none so crazy as the guy who wants to define what a Linux review should comprise. His qualifications to offer such a definition are perfect - he has never written a review himself but he has read plenty of them.
linux-mag.com: Linux Magazine spends some time with the man who made Ubuntu, arguably the most popular desktop Linux distribution, possible. Kristin Shoemaker finds out what makes Mark tick, and what’s going on with the Shuttleworth Foundation.
linuxgeeksunited.blogspot: I saw yet another article posted by someone who apparently has nothing better to do than beat dead horses. The view espoused by so many bloggers and other 'writers' who cannot come to terms with the number and volume of distros available, that somehow there are 'too many', is akin to that of a child who complains in a candy store that because he or she cannot make up their mind.
- Postfix Configuration for Ubuntu, CentOS and OpenSuse
- Create and Delete windows shares from Linux
- Variable MultiLine Spacing With Sed On Linux Or Unix
internetling.com: I hear the former CEO of Linspire said it’s going to ruin the company, because the shares will become worthless. But for us users, what we’re going to see, is a new direction for the not-so-popular Click ‘n’ Run and maybe even a new, merged distribution?
wsj.com: MYSQL chief Marten Mickos isn't afraid his rivals in the database-software industry will ever overtake him. "Let them try," he says. "Our secret is in the way we operate our culture, and I'm convinced others cannot imitate that."

thevarguy.com: Two small Linux companies are merging. What does it mean to Linux market leaders like Red Hat, Novell and Ubuntu — and Linux customers? Here are some clues from The VAR Guy.
itwire.com: The fact that organising Australia's national Linux conference is fully a year's work has been brought home with the announcement by the organisers of LCA 2009, or linux.conf.au as it is better known, that ideas for papers can be submitted.
linux.com: Alternative Find and Replace for Writer (AltSearch) has the ambitious goal of replacing and enhancing one of the most basic pieces of OpenOffice.org functionality. It's undermined by a chaotic interface, but if you have the patience to continue past first impressions, you will find AltSearch comes far closer to fulfilling its promise than you might initially imagine
blogs.zdnet: Retailers and contract manufacturers in Taiwan say that novice PC users there, like students and housewives, tend to buy the Linux version of the Eee PC701, while geeks go for Windows XP. Does that sound backwards?
chris.pirillo.com: I don’t use Linux as my operating system, but I do have several Linux live CDs. The problem that I always have with live CDs for Linux is that when they’re built, they include things I would never include. Or, they don’t put in things that I feel I should have. At Custom NimbleX, you can easily create your own customized version of Linux.
pcworld.com: Making the switch from Windows to Linux will incur some costs as employees and support staff adjust to the new system's configuration settings, utilities, and applications. Even so, the savings in future hardware and software upgrades could be huge.
