In this week's KDE Commit-Digest: Configuration and layout work in Plasma. A whole load of Plasma backports from trunk to the KDE 4.0 branch (for KDE 4.0.2). Plasma applets begin to be ported to use WebKit from Qt 4.4. Color blindness simulation for KMag. Optimisations in Kalzium, Amarok, and KGet.
rad-box.com: Another year has passed in the Open Source Community and there has been many Successes. In this review I shall pick my top 2 (out of the 23 tested) worst Linux Distros for 2007.
outflux.net/blog: Apress was kind enough to send me a copy of their new book “Beginning Ubuntu Server Administration: From Novice to Professional” by Sander van Vugt. Overall, I was very impressed with this book — it was well written, filled with applicable examples, covered a wide range of topics, and provided background for people new to Ubuntu or Linux in general.
aralbalkan.com: Both the Eee PC (at least the 4GB model I have) and the N800 have internal web cams and WiFi. So, budding video bloggers, grab your N800s, connect to Seesmic, and start vlogging away. Not so fast. They're a slight niggle.
onceupondesign.com: I know that this subject has been hacked up by people all over the internet, but now it’s my turn. I’ve been using Ubuntu on my laptop for a few months now and I think it’s great. I had to ask myself, “What’s holding desktop Linux back?”
crunchbang.org: I've released another version of CrunchBang Linux, my remastered version of Ubuntu featuring the lightweight Openbox window manager. Version 7.10.02 is the version that was never meant to be; however, as soon as people started downloading and using the original I realized I'd better try to clean up the distribution and start to attempt to fix any issues/problems.

blog.nixternal: After working on some bugs, testing Alpha 5, and playing around with the new Alpha 5 CDs in Windows Vista, I ran across quite a few things that could be listed as “The good, the bad, and the ugly.” So lets start off with the good.
mozillazine.org: Today marks ten years since Netscape Communications Corporation launched mozilla.org to coordinate the open source development of the Netscape Communicator 5.0 source code, an endeavor that would later become known more broadly as the Mozilla project.
kmandla.wordpress: PCMan’s file manager has hit a stable 0.3.6, and I compiled one in Arch just to see it in action. This is still one of my favorite file managers, regardless of the system.
Dana Blankenhorn: Linden Labs, whose Second Life is so cool yet so lacking in profits it’s been lampooned in an IBM ad, sent out an e-mail alert this week boasting that open source is giving the company, well, a second life.
blogs.cnet.com: Much is rightly made about the quality of open-source software like JBoss and Red Hat Enterprise Linux. These, however, are arguably not the source of the quality of the businesses behind them. Their networks were/are.
bi03.co.uk: I`m going to list this out in the same order as my programs menu in xfce. I use my my computer mainly for business but also for some general web/multimedia stuff too.
blogs.ittoolbox.com: It was nine years ago this month that Gerard Beekmans started the very successful project called Linux From Scratch, or LFS for short.
insidesocal.com: What version of Linux has been at the top of the Distrowatch rankings for months now that I've never tried until today? PCLinuxOS. Everybody I know who has runs PCLinuxOS has good things to say about it. Scott Ruecker of LXer and the Los Angeles Daily News' own City Hall reporter Rick Orlov are among those who have used and liked it.
earthweb.com: If the cost of Windows software is stretching your already-thin budget, you'll be happy to learn about the variety of open-source software applications that won't cost you a cent. We run through the alternatives.

junauza.blogspot: Astronomy, considered as one of the oldest sciences, is the scientific study of celestial objects outside the Earth's atmosphere. I’ve collected here a list of well-recognized free/open-source Astronomy software. I hope this helps:
fosswire.com: Renaming a big set of files can be a right chore. For example, if you’ve just imported a set of digital photos, they’ll usually have really unhelpful and undescriptive filenames such as DSC_0000.jpg.
