zdnet.com.au: The website of Australia's annual Linux conference has become temporarily inaccessible scant months before the event because of policy confusion over whether or not it is allowed to use its long-standing domain name.
linuxdevices.com: A Chinese vendor of microprocessors and computer systems will reportedly soon ship a low-cost "netbook" with an 8.9-inch display, Debian Linux-based software, and a Chinese-made processor.
tombuntu.com: The clipboard system in Linux (X11 to be more specific) recives complaints from users who expect it to work differently when applications are closed. The problem is that when content is copied from an application and the application is closed, the clipboard item will be cleared. I ran into this problem recently.
thelinuxlink.net: Yeah, I know it is still a few days off from official release, but true to form, I grabbed it for my workstation at work before the rush. I simply changed my /etc/apt/source.list to point from hardy to intrepid, sudo aptitude update, sudo aptitude dist-upgrade and about an hour later I was rebooting.
news.cnet: A colleague today showed me a cool, new browser that he's been using to browse the web at blisteringly fast speeds. The browser? Minefield. The author of the code? Mozilla.
preacherpen.wordpress: Linux powers both of my computers, and Simply Mepis is the distribution of choice for many reasons. I have been using Simply Mepis several years, and and have no desire to even test other distros; there were some brief stints with Linux Mint and PCLOS, but Mepis is my OS.
celettu.wordpress: I decided to beat the rush and install the Beta of Ubuntu 8.10 this evening. At first I was greeted with the Beta artwork, which I found slightly disappointing, as have others before me.
stuff.co.nz: There have always been people in society who help others just because they can - the cub scout leader, the charity volunteer, the community clean up group, they all contribute to making the world a better place.
newlinuxuser.com: Rhythmbox is the default on Ubuntu and these days I find VLC’s user interface too limited when it comes to playing music files. I’d rather stick with Rhythmbox.
ubuntukungfu.org/blog: Here are some tips for Ubuntu users who use notebook computers, including how to sync files effortlessly between a laptop and desktop, how to switch CPU speeds on the fly from the desktop, how to power-save your hard disk, and more.
linux.com: STUX 2.0, released last month, is a remarkable improvement from the 0.9.2 release I reviewed a couple years ago. While the look and feel of the Slackware-based distribution have stayed pretty much the same, STUX lacks the glaring technical problems that made it unusable on the previous occasion.
informationweek.com: The Computer History Museum Tuesday night honored three legends in the industry, including Linux-creator Linus Torvalds whose operating system became the catalyst for the open-source software movement that challenged traditional concepts of intellectual property.
ducea.com: The Debian Art team is seeking a slogan for the next stable release, Debian GNU/Linux 5.0 “Lenny”.
opensuse.org: The openSUSE Project is proud to announce the availability of beta 3 of the 11.1 release. It’s a few days late, but much better for the delay. Beta 3 is now available for immediate download and testing.
Its that time of year again! Merry Fearmongering everybody!

raiden.net: Switching users who are uncommitted, or can't switch cold turkey, are some of the hardest. One of the easiest ways I've found to help them make the switch is to do a multistep plan with them, similar to how smokers or others do in order to quit.
ericsbinaryworld.com/blog: For some reason, I didn’t get Linux Format Magazine issue #110 when I was supposed to. I ordered another copy and it arrived recently, so it’s time for another slate of Linux reviews.
linuxjournal.com: “What's in a name?” some bloke in the sixteenth century once asked. As Microsoft knows, quite a lot. What you call something can have a major influence on how you think about it. So how Microsoft talks about free software is important – not least for the clues that it gives about its latest tactical move to defang the open source threat.
