linuxfoundation.org: The purpose of this essay is to illustrate by example the strengths and weaknesses of the open source development model versus the binary driver one. The three graphics drivers in question are Intel, ATI and Nvidia. Between them they account for a majority of the graphics market.
fosswire.com: There are two kinds of fast in programming: Fast to code and fast to run. 3D applications and games are known to be speedy. But the time it takes to write and understand the code behind it? Not so much. On the flipside, many abstraction layers designed to make coding easier usually aren’t very efficient. So where’s the median?
junauza.com: I was really impressed with the past versions of Mint, so I made a vow to always keep track of its latest development. Since Mint 5 is derived from Ubuntu 8.04 LTS, I expect it to be filled with exciting new features.
inquirer.net: In a presentation by noted IT entrepreneur Winston Damarillo, mentioning indicators that open source is ready for primetime deployment, one answer reads: "The number of times in a month Microsoft says: ‘We support open source.’"
rudd-o.com: Have you heard about ZFS? It’s a generation-defining stable high-performance high-end filesystems, created by Jeff Bonwick at Sun, and ported over to Mac OS X and the BSD family. Oh, and for Linux, using the FUSE (Filesystem in userspace) kernel abstraction. Here’s my ZFS story.
kde.org: The KDE Community is proud to announce the second beta release of KDE 4.1. Beta 2 is aimed at testers, community members and enthusiasts in order to identify bugs and regressions, so that 4.1 can fully replace KDE 3 for end users.
phoronix.com: For seven years Linux Game Publishing has been selling their Linux-ported games with no form of copy protection on their CD/DVDs, but beginning with their forthcoming port of Sacred: Gold that will be changed. Linux Game Publishing has developed their own Internet-based game copy protection system for Linux.
zdnet.co.uk/blog: Since posting the First impressions blog about the new openSuSE 11.0 release, I have spent quite a bit more time exploring it - in the process of which I have installed it three more times. Here are some more observations made along the way.
Welcome to this year's 4th issue of DPN, the newsletter for the Debian community. Some of the topics covered in this issue: Call for new New Maintainer Application Managers, Backports.org keyring package?, and Debian powers Max Planck Institute 32.8 TFlops supercomputer.
freesoftwaremagazine.com: There is nothing more guaranteed to ignite a bad tempered, incandescent flame war that an outbreak of hostilities between the rival Gnome and KDE camps. Well, except perhaps a slanging match between the champions of the GUI and the command line. Enter stage left the compromise candidate which might just unite the warring factions: Hotwire.

polishlinux.org: Only one month is left before KDE 4.1 is announced. That’s why I thought it’s a good occasion to perform yet another visual changelog (rev 823000). Today’s article will be a bit different than the previous ones since I’m going to focus on the biggest annoyances of KDE 4.1 from my personal perspective.
ruminationsonthedigitalrealm.org: The battle of operating systems is over. The dust clouds of the Linux distributions wars can finally settle down. The victor is known to all and we simply have to bow our heads in gratitude. After working intensely with OpenSUSE 11.0 for at least a full day there is not a shadow of doubt that this is the release everyone has been waiting for.
beranger.org: After dozens of reviews or mentions of openSUSE 11.0 on various blogs, I finally got persuaded to give it a try by two reviews: one by Bruce Byfield (OpenSUSE 11: A Feature-Rich Distro in Search of Direction), and the other one on TechMoe.com.
informationweek.com: Disasters happen to the best of computers. Luckily, open source apps like SystemRescueCD, dd, Partedmagic, BackTrack, Security Tools Distribution, Helix, and TestDisk can help recover important data and bring dead systems back to life.
builderau.com.au: Many open source developers remain sceptical of Sun because their memories of the company focus on Sun's interactions with the community in 2001/2002, which Sun's chief open source officer Simon Phipps concedes was a period where Sun "screwed up".
blogbeebe.blogspot: I'm looking at the latest batch of updates for Ubuntu 8.04, 17 in all. One set of updates is for the kernel. That's right, yet another kernel update. And why are we updating the kernel this time? So that we can shave 3 seconds off the boot-up sequence!

teenlinuxlounge.com: One of the first things you should do this summer is join a nice Free & Open Source Software community. Personally I'm joining a very interesting project called SourceMage Linux, there I hope to help with their packaging and bash scripting. They have a great community!
justanothertechblog.blogspot: What can I say, I love Ubuntu installations! As with most previous releases, Hardy Heron comes on a nice LiveCD through which you can dip your toes into Linux and decide whether or not to take the plunge. With Ubuntu, there is a great probability that a large percentage of your hardware will be detected (if not, as in many cases, all) and configured properly right off the bat.
