freesoftwaremagazine.com: In my last article, I talked about using the powerful gedit text editor. But no program is perfect, mainly because too many features imply too much bloat. That’s where gedit’s plugins come into play. In this article, I’m will explain how to install and use some of my favorite gedit plugins.
itmanagement.earthweb: To outsiders, software whose source code is freely distributable is open source software. However, as soon as you become involved with the community that centers around such code, you quickly find that it is also called free software -- and that the two terms are far from synonymous.
desktoplinux.com: I had really thought that Vista SP1 would be an improvement. I didn't think it would be a big improvement, but still that it would be more competitive with Windows XP and the modern Linux desktop. I was wrong.
linuxowns.wordpress: I have about 100 movie dvd’s and I like to back those up to my hard drive. When you just have a load of .iso it’s quite hard to pick a movie just by it’s title. Cstar is a free open source application for managing your collections.
Associated Press: The man who co-created the game Dungeons & Dragons and helped start the role-playing phenomenon is dead.
ubuntulinuxhelp.com: One of the people who switched to Ubuntu Linux recently, phoned me asking what kind of antivirus they should have installed. Quite frankly, I’ve never given that a thought. I’ve used Ubuntu for some time and have never had any virus issues, ever.
junauza.blogspot: Increasing number of software applications are going the free/open-source way these days. Here are some of the most notable software packages which were published under a proprietary software license but later released as free and open source software.
tech.blorge.com: Everex makes a lot of low-cost systems these days; including the CloudBook. This laptop is a full-size 15.4″ model running gOS Linux version 2. It’s specs are relatively unimpressive but at $400, it’s hard to complain.
I did not seen any reasoning or logic for creating Shift Linux. What the project website describes as need is the need for gnome/KDE/fluxbox theme, not an Ubuntu derivative. I tried really hard to find at least some other difference but failed. Shift Linux just provides an additional theme, and as a matter of fact, an ugly theme.
pcadvisor.co.uk: Asus is showing off a new version of its low-cost Eee PC at Cebit which features a larger screen. The Eee PC 900 sports an 8.9in screen.
linux-exploration.blogspot: Linux Mint 4 "Daryna" is a unique distribution. It is based off of the popular and powerful Ubuntu, and uses GNOME for its window manager. These two things make GNOME look great. Or, I should say, makes GNOME look like Windows.
reuters.com: IBM has teamed up with partners in Austria and Poland to offer Microsoft-free personal computers for the eastern European market, IBM said in a statement on Tuesday.
linux.com: Slax, a Slackware-based modular Linux distribution, released version 6.0 last month. This release brings a new tar install format along with a new donation request, but also includes some noticeable bugs.
distro-review.com: I've toyed with DreamLinux before (2.2) so I felt inclined to give the RC1 of DreamLinux 3.0 a go. I've always had an interest in DreamLinux because of the interface; I like the OSX feel they've deliberately aimed for and I appreciate there are a lot of users who also like this theme.
brighthand.com: Starting at a mere $400, the Everex CloudBook marks the latest entry to the expanding world of UMPC-type subnotebooks at affordable prices. With a 7-inch display, 1.2 GHz processor, and 30 GB hard drive, the CloudBook certainly doesn't make a very good desktop replacement computer, but it does look like one impressive little road warrior.
press release: The Linux Foundation today announced that Texas Instruments is joining the Foundation. With its new membership, TI will help foster the growth of the Linux platform and collaborate with industry leaders who define both technical and operational best practices around open source software.
Glyn Moody: I am of the view that the Asus Eee PC represents both a new class of ultraportable, ultra low-cost computers, and a huge opportunity for GNU/Linux. For the first time, a system running free software has really caught the imagination of the public - just look at the comments on this user forum to get a sense of the real enthusiasm of Eee PC owners.
