blog.i-no.de: There has recently been a discussion about GNU switching from bzip2 to lzma for their distributed tarballs. They still offer gzip tarballs as an alternative. However, Gentoo has been preferring the bzip2 tarballs mostly due to the improved pack ratio of bzip2. Unfortunately, the software for lzma is not (yet) as mature as some would like.

Discover PHP's new features and syntax improvements and see how they will take this already-popular scripting language to the next level. Learn how Unicode support, Web 2.0 features, and other changes make PHP V6 more robust, as well as more international.
liquidat.wordpress: In the last years several projects were started to provide user friendly solutions for the backup of Linux desktop machines. Despite their advantages they all suffer from stalled development: all mentioned projects are effectively dead at the moment. There is only one exception: the little known Areca.
bbc.co.uk/blogs: What's the most valuable piece of web software you use every day? Your web browser, surely. So whoever makes the browser which dominates the market should also make riches beyond the dreams of avarice - shouldn't they?
linuxowns.wordpress: Docks became popular when Mac began using them in their operating system. But these days docks are available on all platforms. So which ones should you avoid and which ones should you use?
blog.lostlake.org: I got a mini-note 2133. It came with SUSE. I tried, repeatedly to do the most simple operations and it just sucked. So, I installed Ubuntu and the Mini-Note turned into a great machine.
reallylinux.com: In a bit of off the cuff humor, I've created another Linux Top Ten Countdown. It's nowhere near as funny without a drum roll, so perhaps you may wish to download and listen to one while reading the list.
SourceForge today announced inclusion of the OpenID functionality in their SourceForge.net website. SourceForge.net users can now log in with an OpenID and receive a corresponding SourceForge.net identity for use at other sites that support OpenID logins.
freesoftwaremagazine.com: This book is written for the open source software package maintainer. I’m purposely not using the terms “free software” or “proprietary software that’s free”. The use of the term “open source” is critical in this context. You see, open source defines a type of software distribution channel.
redhatmagazine.com: AbiWord just had a great 2.6 release and the developers took several hours of their spare time over a few weeks period answering questions and providing information. Thanks to the team and especially MarcMaurer for his time and patience. We present you a detailed interview with the AbiWord team on a broad range of topics.
linux.com: I use Tomboy, an open source notetaking app, to cull and organize the hundreds of bits of information I track, and to prioritize it on to-do lists on the fly. When we first reviewed Tomboy 0.3.5, it had some obvious flaws. The project has had a number of updates since then, and the newest version, 0.10.0, really makes the grade.

Matt Asay: For those who had forgotten, Oracle provides Linux support. It's called "Unbreakable Linux." Most of you stopped thinking about it long ago, but for those who didn't, Oracle's chief corporate architect, Edward Screven decided to remind everyone.
arstechnica.com: It has been almost three years since the release of OpenOffice.org 2.0. During that time we've seen community fragmentation and frustration resulting from Sun's heavy involvement with the office suite's development, and even a third-party online version that provides editing and collaboration features. Now, the open source office suite is back with a new 3.0 beta release.
osweekly.com: Opera is light years faster than other browsers I have tried in the past. Most pages load in a fraction of a second on broadband, even during peak usage times. But even with its tremendous speed, some pages using WordPress, among other content management systems, are not always being rendered correctly.
blogs.the451group: We’ve recently seen the popular EeePc in Windows XP form. There are even concerns that Linux in the EeePC ultra-portable computers — or indeed Linux in the larger subnotebook, mini-notebook or whatever you want to call this emerging category — is now likely to evaporate in the face of Windows versions.

hartmansblog.blogspot: There are approximately 200 workstations around campus for student use of which approximately 35 are Pentium 4 powered. The rest are either P3 or P2 machines with around 256MB RAM. The simple fact of the matter is that with machines like these there are few options when it comes to Operating Systems. Xubuntu though seems to work pretty well.
