redmond developer: Any developers who thought Linux Foundation Executive Director Jim Zemlin's recent advice to open sourcers to stop bashing Microsoft signaled some kind of rapprochement between the rival OSes should think again.
International Herald Tribune: Adblock Plus, an easy-to-use free addition to the Firefox Internet browser that deletes advertisements from Web sites is still a niche product for the niche browser. But it is potentially a huge development in the online world, and not because it simplifies Web sites cluttered with advertisements.
CLICK: I can't believe I didn't think of this before. When the GUI text editor Geany wouldn't cooperate with the X setup on my Debian 4.0 laptop, I took the advice of all the users of self-described "crap computers" at ubuntuforums.org and went for the smaller, faster Leafpad editor. Problem solved.
just uber: I set up a desktop the other day which I intend to store some files on. The problem is however, I usually use my laptop, and I’m too lazy to walk upstairs to the desktop. I’ve always just used ssh to administer servers through the command line, but in this case, this being a desktop, I wanted a GUI.
This article describes how to set up PC-BSD v1.4 beta. PC-BSD is released under the BSD license. PC-BSD is a desktop operating system based on FreeBSD. It uses KDE as its desktop environment.
PCLinuxOS Magazine, September 2007 Issue is available to download. Some highlights include PCLinuxOS - A Walk Down History Lane, KDE User Guide - Part 8, and Ubuntu's Hype is Misleading.
pinderkent.blogsavy: I was disappointed today to hear that the release of KDE 4.0 will be delayed by two months. The delay is caused by the insertion of two extra betas. But this isn’t a bad thing at all.
matt asay: Consider: a large population of users who can report virii. Many people with the same "itch" (to be free of virii). A subsegment of both communities with the aptitude and interest in killing these virii. Should be a perfect market for open source, right?
binstock.blogspot: I have long felt that desktop Linux would become a reality only when you could go to a Linux gathering and find no more than a third of the attendees at the command line. Earlier this summer, I was at O'Reilly's Ubuntu Live conference in Portland, and the Ubuntu tribe were almost all using the GUI interface.

kernelTRAP: Linus Torvalds released the fifth release candidate for the upcoming 2.6.23 Linux kernel noting that he was on his way to Cambridge, England, for the 2007 kernel summit. The invite-only kernel summit has been hosted in Ontario, Canada the past five years, the being the first year it has been hosted in Europe.

cio today: In the U.S. vote for Open XML this week, IBM strongly argued against approval of Open XML, and Oracle joined IBM in voting against it. Voting in favor of the Open XML format were Hewlett-Packard, EMC, Intel, Sony Electronics, Lexmark International, and Apple, as well as the Defense Department, Homeland Security, and NIST.
Ubuntu tutorials: I thought today I would outline a few tips on network security with tcpwrappers or, as you’re probably more familiar, the hosts.allow and hosts.deny files. How you can use them?
Linux by Example: While executing commands that needs root permission, I rely on sudo. Sudo provides me a very convenient way to execute root privilege commands from my user account provided with my user account password.
opensourcelearning.info: One wisdom in the realm of Linux says: “If it isn’t broken, don’t fix it”. Well, after a year of playing with Ubuntu Dapper Drake it was time to move ahead. It was getting broken.
Martin Ankerl: Linux has an abundance of excellent terminal applications. Interestingly, I could not find any decent comparison of their text display performance. Since I use the command line a lot, I want text output that is as fast as possible.
People Behind KDE releases the third interview in its series of four interviews with students who are working on KDE as part of the Google Summer of Code 2007 - meet Leo Franchi, Juan González Aguilera, Andrew Manson and Marcus Hanwell!
only ubuntu: PowerTOP is a Linux tool that finds the software component(s) that make your laptop use more power than necessary while it is idle. However... there are many things that can ruin the party, both inside the kernel and in userspace.
kmandla.wordpress: I’m going out on a limb saying it, but here’s my brief prediction: Xubuntu’s push toward Gnome applications is going to marginalize the distro.
