ivan.fomentgroup.org/blog: First I would like to point out that there are two new Plasma themes on kde-look. Well, at least two *my* new themes. Apart from fixing bugs related to the Qt 4.5, there are some new cool things in Lancelot and its theming mechanism.
downloadsquad.com: I've gotten several comments since I started writing for DownloadSquad from readers that want to know what Firefox theme I'm running in my screenshots. Since I had some spare time on my hands, I decided it was time to put together a selection of my favorites to share.
community.zdnet: Well, after considerable struggle, it has been a successful weekend. I've been trying since the first day that I got my HP 2133 Mini-Note to get Ubuntu 8.10 installed on it. I decided to bite the bullet and use the text based alternate installer.
Linux brings the power of Open Source Unix tools to the S/390 mainframe. All the current versions of standard Unix services may run in a Linux partition gaining the advantages of mainframe hardware.
sdtimes.com: In the earliest days of computers, just about everything could be considered free software. Along the way, software developers change their attitudes and move away from openness toward the proprietary. It was this shift in the hacker culture, as he called it, that eventually led Richard Stallman to strike out on his own in 1983.
kmandla.wordpress: Sixteen megabytes is a pitful amount of memory, and I sometimes have to remind myself of that. And yet these Awesome-based console-application systems are regularly using up less than half of the 12Mb htop says I have left to use. How does it all fit in under 16Mb?
bigbrovar.wordpress: Bluetooth support has always been shaky in gnome. The default bluetooth manager is often very basic and unintuitive. "You cant always have it all” that was my attitude to the whole bluetooth problem till i found out about Blueman.
debaday.debian.net: localepurge allows you to remove unnecessary locale data you have on your system and prevents installing unneeded locales when installing new packages.
dberkholz.wordpress: Having the right people in the right places pursuing the right goals is key to Gentoo’s success. Keeping in mind the Pareto principle (20% of the effort produces 80% of the results), I’ve come up with some ideas.
debian.org: The Debian Project is pleased to announce the official release of Debian GNU/Linux version 5.0 (codenamed Lenny) after 22 months of constant development. Debian GNU/Linux is a free operating system which supports a total of twelve processor architectures and includes the KDE, GNOME, Xfce, and LXDE desktop environments.
There's a bug in virt-install and virt-manager on Ubuntu 8.10 that does not let you run Windows XP as a guest under KVM. During the Windows installation, the guest needs to be rebooted, and then you get the following error, and Windows XP refuses to boot: "A disk read error occured. Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart".
As I write here I’m downloading the beta 3 of PCLinuxOS 2009, which will be my first go at the Ripper gang’s newest version since 2007. Based on that experience, my expectations are high. I guess that’s what happens when you produce quality stuff, Texstar: people start anticipating better and better.

internetling.com: Have you already jumped onto the netbook bandwagon? Some of the advantages of running Linux on a sub-notebook are a smaller memory footprint, better security and tons of free applications right out of the box. So here are some Linux distributions I recommend.
pinheiro-kde.blogspot: Air was the wallpaper we introduced in KDE 4.2, but that just the beginning of something larger than that, air is supposed to be something different than what oxygen is, something that tries to appeal to a different user base that does not find oxygen sexy.
tuxradar.com: Download managers exist for two reasons. Firstly, they help organise your downloads, moving them to a single, central location on your desktop. Secondly, they help to improve download performance. But with so many around, which to choose?
lunduke.com: There are many fantastic Open Source projects out there. But just how do they get the funding they need to continue and expand development?

blogs.techrepublic.com: Windows 7 may be generating some positive buzz, but Jack Wallen remains skeptical. In fact, he says it’s only a matter of time before Linux takes its rightful spot at the top of the OS heap.
ianmurdock.com: I discussed an idea I had had: That I commission a “Linux family tree” piece, done in the same pencil drawing with much embedded humor. If there would be any interest in having a copy of this Linux family tree, please email.
