linux-mag.com: Linux Magazine spends some time with the man who made Ubuntu, arguably the most popular desktop Linux distribution, possible. Kristin Shoemaker finds out what makes Mark tick, and what’s going on with the Shuttleworth Foundation.
linuxgeeksunited.blogspot: I saw yet another article posted by someone who apparently has nothing better to do than beat dead horses. The view espoused by so many bloggers and other 'writers' who cannot come to terms with the number and volume of distros available, that somehow there are 'too many', is akin to that of a child who complains in a candy store that because he or she cannot make up their mind.
- Postfix Configuration for Ubuntu, CentOS and OpenSuse
- Create and Delete windows shares from Linux
- Variable MultiLine Spacing With Sed On Linux Or Unix
internetling.com: I hear the former CEO of Linspire said it’s going to ruin the company, because the shares will become worthless. But for us users, what we’re going to see, is a new direction for the not-so-popular Click ‘n’ Run and maybe even a new, merged distribution?
wsj.com: MYSQL chief Marten Mickos isn't afraid his rivals in the database-software industry will ever overtake him. "Let them try," he says. "Our secret is in the way we operate our culture, and I'm convinced others cannot imitate that."

thevarguy.com: Two small Linux companies are merging. What does it mean to Linux market leaders like Red Hat, Novell and Ubuntu — and Linux customers? Here are some clues from The VAR Guy.
itwire.com: The fact that organising Australia's national Linux conference is fully a year's work has been brought home with the announcement by the organisers of LCA 2009, or linux.conf.au as it is better known, that ideas for papers can be submitted.
linux.com: Alternative Find and Replace for Writer (AltSearch) has the ambitious goal of replacing and enhancing one of the most basic pieces of OpenOffice.org functionality. It's undermined by a chaotic interface, but if you have the patience to continue past first impressions, you will find AltSearch comes far closer to fulfilling its promise than you might initially imagine
blogs.zdnet: Retailers and contract manufacturers in Taiwan say that novice PC users there, like students and housewives, tend to buy the Linux version of the Eee PC701, while geeks go for Windows XP. Does that sound backwards?
chris.pirillo.com: I don’t use Linux as my operating system, but I do have several Linux live CDs. The problem that I always have with live CDs for Linux is that when they’re built, they include things I would never include. Or, they don’t put in things that I feel I should have. At Custom NimbleX, you can easily create your own customized version of Linux.
pcworld.com: Making the switch from Windows to Linux will incur some costs as employees and support staff adjust to the new system's configuration settings, utilities, and applications. Even so, the savings in future hardware and software upgrades could be huge.
montanalinux.org: My first Linux installation took place circa 1992, I pulled my hair out for a month or so while I was trying to figure out how to install this very interesting and FREE operating system. Wow, Linux has gone a long way since my first install.
raiden.net: One of the things that's bothered me to no end for quite a while is the ridiculously huge number of Linux distributions out there. 350+ active or semi-active and nearly 200 dead distros is rather pathetic in my opinion. It would not be hard at all to merge all of those distributions into one "jack of all trades" distribution.
blogs.techrepublic.com: As many of you know, a while back I was converted to Ubuntu. Currently running (happily I might add) Ubuntu 7.10, I have had no need to return to my Red Hat roots. Of course being a writer in this industry, it behoves me to make sure I am up to date on the latest, greatest software. So I decided it was necessary that I install Fedora 9.
- Rename Files in Bulk from the Command Line
- Nautilus search
- Adding a service in Fedora
phoronix.com: In recent times the Gentoo Linux and its foundation has been plagued with a multitude of problems and times have certainly been challenging for this once popular distribution. It's already July and we are now finally seeing Gentoo's first official release of the year.
jonreagan.wordpress: Recently there has been quite a karfuffle surrounding several people’s disagreement over the direction of KDE 4. As many of you know, KDE 4 is not yet complete, and is far different from it’s ancestor, KDE 3. The arguments have seemingly quieted down, and finally there has been some closure on the debate.
fosswire.com: Many financial applications, such as KMyMoney, can be very useful, however there is often quite a learning curve associated with them. Buddi is an open source personal budgeting application for Windows, Linux and Mac OS X that is designed to keep things very simple.
polishlinux.org: This story begins – as usual – long long time ago, far far away, behind the Ocean, in United States of America, in Bell Laboratories building. In that firm a computer stood. Nothing special about it, but in 1969, when those events started, computer wasn’t commonplace at all. There were no Personal Computers, no Microsoft, IBM or Apple.
