linux.com: Yesterday, I looked at the major applications in the first beta for KOffice 2.0. Now it's the turn of the rest of the beta: The KPlato project manager, KChart, the vector graphics editor Karbon, and the raster graphics editor Krita.
blogs.gnome.org/mneptok: This recent post is not the first time that the Ubuntu project and its sponsor, my employer, have been accused of neglecting Kubuntu. And it may not be the last. But please allow me to make some points.
blog.cryos.net: I am very pleased to announce that KDE 4.1.2 is in the Gentoo official tree and I unmasked it a little earlier today. I think that all the big bugs have been squashed but there may be a few left lurking.
linuxexperimentation.blogspot: I confess I am a KDE fan. I had great hopes on KDE 4, I liked it very much for its radical new features. I tried KDE 4 with Debian, Kubuntu, OpenSuSE, Fedora but none were polished and ready to satisfy me. But I think the wait is over with yesterday's release of Mandriva 2009.
theopensourcerer.com: The very limited use of FOSS in the UK’s education sector has long been a source of much puzzlement and even anger - from this side of the IT divide at least.
gnome.org/~michael/blog: Is success measured in downloads, or up-loads ? are bugs filed as good as bugs fixed ? are volunteer marketers as valuable as volunteer developers ? Alternatively does success come through attracting and empowering developers, who have such fun writing the code that they volunteer their life, allegiance and dreams to improve it ?
heise-online.co.uk: New and improved Wi-Fi drivers now allow the kernel to routinely deal with a considerably higher number of 802.11n Wi-Fi chips than before. Add the gspca webcam driver and a host of further changes to kernel drivers and infrastructure and you get a Linux kernel with much better hardware support and a much wider range of features; in addition, 2.6.27 is said to be faster and better scalable than its predecessors.
blogs.zdnet: OpenOffice.org 3.0 Final has already been uploaded to a variety of mirror download sites ahead of the official announcement Monday 13.

techradar.com: If there was one site that would change the world for ever, it would be the first ever website, created by internet pioneer Tim Berners-Lee.
torvalds-family.blogspot: The whole point of a release is that it should be something reasonably stable. Stable enough so that people can take that release and use it as a base for the stable tree. It doesn't have to be perfect.
jucato.org/blog: Taking a break from my website “duties” (some other blog post), I thought of doing some UserBase “marketing”. This has been one of the pet projects of the KDE Community Working Group and one that I’ve been personally and deeply involved in. This “tour” tries to highlight some of the features and goals of the wiki.
ubuntulinuxtipstricks.blogspot: OpenOffice.org Impress makes LaTeX + Beamer look user-friendly. Now that I've gone through turning my OLF slides from boring black-on-white to prettier, I realize how much of a usability nightmare Impress is.
opensuse.org: We have a power outage in the part of the city of Nürnberg where the Novell office and the main server room is. This means that many of our servers are right down, especially the download redirector, the mailing lists, the openSUSE build service and users.opensuse.org.

jaysonrowe.wordpress: Please don’t regard this post as a review of Mandriva 2009 - these are simply my first impressions upon booting up the system. First, I have one word: Wow!
gnuru.org: One criticism of Linux is that ordinary people are, on the whole, too ignorant about technology to use anything except Windows. This is just wrong.
infoworld.com: As we've seen time and again, in an increasing number of enterprise software categories, open source has become a promising alternative to commercial software. But there's no free ride.
linux.com: Foresight Linux is best known by many as the distribution that features the Conary package management system. Perhaps soon it may become known as your child's favorite distro. The recent release of Foresight Kid's Edition 1.0 introduces a new generation to the benefits of Linux and open source software. My 4-year-old granddaughter test drove Foresight Kid's Edition and had a wonderful time.
thesmallerbang.wordpress: After a few months of using it, I finally feel I am confident enough to write a piece about one of the best, and I MEAN best, linux distros ever, archlinux. This distro is rather unique, and several things in it make it the ideal distro for the intermediate level linux user.
