freegamer.blogspot: krank is a game of dexterity, being somewhere between Breakout and billiard, where the aim of each level is to shove floating stones towards compatible static stones. You control a short chain of stones with your mouse to achieve that.
crn.com: Mozilla is just a few days away from releasing Firefox 3. With over one million pledged users ready to participate on Download Day, it's fair to say expectations are high for the latest version of the Web browser.
blog.sillica.com: This article will try to provide a contrast between ‘the Debian way’ and ‘the Slackware way’ when it comes to distribution management. The idea is to really attempt to illuminate people on why Debian, and many other distributions may not be ideal, and why a classic approach such as Slackware still has merit in this world of modern feature-crazy distributions.
kmandla.wordpress: A long time ago I found some Openbox themes that were made by a person named Sebastian Sareyko. All of those sites are abandoned now and I don’t know if Sebastian has another home. I got lucky yesterday and found a few of the original .tar.gz files.

linuxtoday.com: It got me wondering about all the various reasons why Linux is promoted, and how being free is in beer (one would think) should be a huge draw. But, as history shows, while being free (gratis) is an advantage, it has not brought people over in waves. When people come to Linux, they cite other advantages first, and sometimes mention the gratis part only as an after-thought.
bitburners.com: The six month update cycles of major Linux distributions guarantees that there will be plenty of fresh releases for every spring and fall. It is time to have another look at the current Linux offering. In the past six months the development has been incremental, but with a few nice surprises as well.
osweekly.com: As I sit here looking at my Zonbu(s) (a mini and the notebook), I cannot help but feel overwhelming dismay over all the progress made with "ready-to-go" Linux solutions. My concern is not in regard to the projects themselves, but it’s where Microsoft is trying to edge their way into something that Linux was working magic with first.
bmighty.com/blog: A friend in need, the saying goes, is a friend indeed. And the next time your Windows PC goes belly-up at the worst possible time, your new best friend just might turn out to be a Linux rescue CD.
alternativenayk.wordpress: Unlike my previous review of Ubuntu 8.04, in which I both compared it to PCLinuxOS (which is not fair to both distros) and also criticised it’s GNOME-ic flavour, which I agree is a matter of taste. Instead, I’m focussing simply on my current use of Linux Mint 5.0 and rate my experience (positive/negative).
eyrie.org: My project for the past three days has been to upgrade our etch-based Debian build system to add support for Ubuntu hardy. We're primarily a Debian shop, but we want to use Ubuntu for the public timeshare systems due to its faster stable update cycle.
zdnet.com: I’m running a Linux night with my computer club tonight. Our theme? Get Lucky on Friday the 13th with Linux! We managed to get a local non-profit called the Athol-Royalston Educational Foundation to donate $400 towards a kit computer from TigerDirect. One important piece of my speal tonight will be to discuss both the benefits and limitations of Linux.
linuxjournal.com: If you take a gander at the number of Linux distributions listed at Distrowatch, you'll find there are tons of "forks" and "offshoots" from one distribution to another. With Linux, we have the freedom to do that, but I'm curious if there are any Linux flavors that are truly offensive to people. There has been some controversial uprisings in the past, but it begs the questions -- does the freedom to fork ever cross over into creepville?
junauza.com: Though considered by many as the world’s greatest computer programmer, Linus Torvalds is not afraid to show everyone his softer side. Some of the photographs that I’m going to show to you should speak for themselves.
ducea.com: Debian GNU/Linux has published a new release update outlining the current status and upcoming goals of the project before the expected September release of version 5.0 “Lenny”.
computerworld.com: You're not the only one losing weight for beach season. The latest and least expensive breed of slimmed-down mobile PC--the mini-laptop--is ready for summer travel.
linux.com: Of all the community distributions, probably the least known is openSUSE. After two and a half years, the distro is not only still working out details about how its community operates -- including how its governing board is elected -- but also struggling to come out of the shadow of its corporate parent Novell, much as Fedora has emerged from its initial dominance by Red Hat.
theregister.co.uk: Sun has made good on its promise to deliver OpenSolaris, the company's Unix-based answer to Linux, with a company-supported, commercial update arriving in mid-May. Although far from a complete product, the latest OpenSolaris is impressive and in the long run could prove a viable alternative to Linux.
cnet.com: Havoc Pennington has long been one of the pioneers of the Linux desktop movement, and a primary GNOME developer. Once at Red Hat, now at LITL (cool name, by the way), Havoc should be the poster boy for Linux desktop advocacy. Nope.
linux.com: In the field of penetration testing, BackTrack is today's premier Linux distribution. Designed for, created by, and used by security professionals around the globe, BackTrack is the result of a merger between two earlier, competing distributions -- WHAX and Auditor Security Collection.
