blogs.zdnet.com: The project provides patches enabling open source media players to use CoreAVC software under Linux. The DMCA removal request and the project reinstatement was been sent to Google.
ericsbinaryworld.com: Today I decided to upgrade my Mythdora to the latest verison, 5.0. I downloaded the CD media and booted into the install. I had to do a text install to be able to watch it on my TV. Then I just needed to yum install the kmod-nvidia drivers.
techgage.com: The latest Ubuntu release came out just two weeks ago, but that's old news by now. I have never been much of an Ubuntu fan, and the fact is, I disliked it... a lot. I still stand by the fact that I believe the distro was severely over hyped with the earlier versions, but the latest launch, "Hardy Heron" changes my thoughts quite a bit.
blogbeebe.blogspot: OpenSolaris 2008.5 is available as an ISO download (and here as a torrent). It's shipping with the Gnome 2.20.2 desktop, so it will behave quite comfortably for those who are familiar with Ubuntu 7.10, openSUSE 10.3, and other recent distributions from the last six months. I've booted the live CD on europa, and so far everything Just Works.
behindkde.org: In a new series of People Behind KDE interviews, we visit the United States of America to meet a KDE developer with an affinity for education, accessibility, and Asian culture, a person who works on getting you Hot New Stuff - tonight's star of People Behind KDE is Jeremy Paul Whiting.
Suppose you’ve been good (or sort of good anyway), and you have a huge stack of CD-ROMs (or DVDs) with backups and archives of your old files. Great. But how can you find anything? I solved this problem today by making an index of all the files stored on these disks using a few simple GNU commandline tools.
ostatic.com: After several months of discussion and speculation, the Microsoft-Yahoo buyout deal is apparently off. Yahoo is saying that they have come out of this fight stronger and more focused than before. Does this mean that we will see a change in Yahoo's commitment to open source?
fosswire.com: Adept is the graphical package management program included with Kubuntu. While Adept does the job for most software management tasks, it isn’t exactly the quickest application when it comes to starting up.

Serdar Yegulalp: In this roundup I've looked at seven Linux distributions, all mainly aimed at desktop users. Some ought to be household names; some are less widely sung but still worth looking at. We tested openSUSE, Ubuntu 8.4, PCLinuxOS, Mandriva Linux One, Fedora, SimplyMEPIS, and CentOS 5.1. All performed well, and each had at least one truly outstanding feature.
linuxjournal.com: When I demonstrate software for Linux Journal, I tend to use Ubuntu as my operating system. The reason is simply because Ubuntu is extremely popular, but it begs the question, should the Linux community standardize on a single distribution? Let's look at some of the pros and cons:

I'm posting this from my Gateway M685 running the openSUSE 11 beta 2 Live CD and Firefox 3 beta 5. It is, simply put, very good. The version I booted and tested was the KDE 4 desktop (KDE 4.0.3 release 17). I can't do much more than a cursory report as I did not install it. I'll touch on what caught my eye.
beranger.org: You know what Mandriva is; you know what XFCE is; you know what a community means; now it's time to acknowledge some good results.
zdnetasia.com: Alongside Red Hat and Novell's recent pulling away from the consumer Linux space, some are not confident the operating system (OS) will be ready for the mainstream market anytime soon.
raiden.net: Being a KDE lover myself, I'm always intrigued by some of the different features and software that come out for KDE. The latest is the Raptor menu. It's certainly an interesting menu system and one that I think deserves closer attention.
farbeyondtheedgeofreason.blogspot: Mac OS X has a reputation as the most visually pleasing operating system around today. Fans often decry other operating systems as looking pathetic by comparison. Well, I beg to differ. I've done a round-up of five of the most impressive Linux desktops available today.
