arstechnica.com: The GUI released by HP for its Mini Mi netbook has been winning accolades for its high design standards. Over at the Ubuntu forums, users are installing the HP Mobile Experience Interface on various Ubuntu distributions.
lunduke.com: If we take a stand that our Linux-based desktops must only consist of 100% free and open source software… Linux is doomed to failure.
serverwatch.com: No, this isn't another rant about how you should convert to Linux because it's free, although it is free. Free is a four-letter word among those who scoff at the mere mention of Linux. Yes, Linux is free, but that doesn't give it an unfair advantage on the desktop because most computers arrive preloaded with Windows — so to the buyer it appears Windows is also free.
blogs.computerworld: If you're like me, you don't like proprietary video and audio codecs. Be that as it may, some sites, like NBC's Olympics site, use Microsoft's proprietary Silverlight streaming technology. Until recently, if you were using Linux that meant you couldn't watch videos from these sites at all. Until now.
linuxplanet.com: For years now, there's been talk brewing about the concept of Green IT. Pundits have predicted in years past that sustainable IT would be job one soon, really soon.
phoronix.com: Two weeks ago NVIDIA released four new Linux drivers and then just a day later they released another driver. Well, NVIDIA has now pushed out yet another proprietary driver update.
Create and manage multiple shells on your console with GNU Screen
freegamer.blogspot: Rigs of Rods is going open source. How cool is that? Glest 3.2 is out. Which is interesting given I proclaimed official Glest development dead.
freesoftwaremagazine.com: Choosing to release a piece of software under the terms of a free software license is an important step. The myriad of licenses available can sometimes confuse and disorient the user, sometimes making this first step much harder than it should be. Let’s try and make things clearer.
tuxradar.com: As you might have guessed from our domain name, TuxRadar.com, we're big fans of Linux. But being a fan of Linux doesn't necessarily make you a Linux fanboy. We think more Linux users need to admit there are some places where Linux isn't quite as good as its competitors.
ostatic.com/blog: I've used other dock applications in Linux, and while I've always liked the idea (and look), they were too rough around the edges for day to day use. I've been running AWN in lieu of the lower GNOME panel for several days, and I'm really pleased.
aplawrence.com: That was a real question, asked by someone considering buying a new computer. It surprised me: I've been seeing more people asking if they should consider Mac or Linux, but this question goes way beyond that. It made me pause; the answer is complicated.
toolbox.com/blogs: The domino effect. This means that when one part of an electronic component fails, the surrounding parts also fail. Just like a row of falling domino's. The same thing can also happen in software. Linux does not have this problem due to the nature of the operating system.
writemsg.blogspot: First lets start with the good news. The gui is much more responsive. Interacting with the sidebar is a smoother experience. Not only has the underlying code obviously been reworked but the look and feel has been overhauled too. It fits in with my GNOME desktop better than before.
raiden.net: Microsoft has apparently changed it's mind about it's lineup of versions for Windows 7. So now, instead of a "netbook" version, they will apparently be offering their "starter" edition instead on notebooks. While they haven't said that verbally, their actions have spoken volumes about what they think of netbooks.

blogs.computerworld: In case you haven't guessed by now, I like desktop Linux. I admit though that Linux is stuck between a rock and a hard place when it comes to dealing with proprietary media formats. There are answers though to this problem and that's one of the reasons why I like the Linux Mint distribution.
linuxdevices.com: An educational software organization in Germany is pilot testing an educational software system based on virtualized Debian/KDE desktops, letting students and teachers access their desktops from home or school.
kmandla.wordpress: Everybody knows what a console application is like: Sparse. Unfriendly. Terse. Mute. Spartan. It’s part of the code of console applications. It has to be this way. It is the law of the jungle. That’s why we, as computer users, can no longer allow a program like calcurse to exist.
ghacks.net: If you work in a business environment then you know the value of the office application. And if you have ever thought about using Linux in your office you know there are boundaries to adoption. The good thing is those boundaries are growing smaller and smaller with every year.
