computerworld.com: For some users, the new generation of ultraportable notebooks comes close to embodying the Holy Grail for road warriors. Their laptop-like keyboards make them more usable for typing tasks than smart phones, but they are lighter and cheaper than traditional laptops. However, while pundits and technology journalists have lavished attention on these products, skeptics have raised questions.

itwire.com: What's the big deal about Linux? Isn't it at heart just a PC-based version of UNIX – the ‘70’s hit operating system which has outlived the predictions of its demise throughout the ‘90’s? If you’ve come from a Solaris or HP/UX or AIX background isn’t a PC-based UNIX a bit, well, passé?
makeuseof.com: Amarok, Rhythmbox and Banshee are a few of the popular music players in Linux. They are great in features and have received plenty of good reviews. But what is unknown to many is that there are a lot of other music players for Linux which are also great in features, but are hidden in some corners of the world.

itmanagement.earthweb: For several years, Ubuntu has been synonymous with user-friendliness. A Web search quickly unearths dozens of articles that suggest that Ubuntu is the distribution you should give non-technical people to introduce them to GNU/Linux. It even won a "Most User-Friendly Linux Distribution" award, which you might think confirms its status.
fsf.org: Our bulletin from Spring 2008 is now available online. Highlights include: GNU is 25 by Matt Lee, The Wikipedia Naming Controversy by Josh Gay, and End Software Patents by Peter Brown.
computingtech.blogspot: You may not realize it unless you are dual booting multiple operating systems, but after your BIOS starts firing up the fan, the microprocessor chip, and the power supply, a boot manager, or bootloader, takes over the process until the kernel starts up.
blogs.computerworld: Vista has been, to be kind, a flop. For several months now, Microsoft has been hinting that the next version of Windows, Windows 7, will be the answer. I'm beginning to wonder, though, if Windows 7 will be little more than Vista rehashed.
celettu.wordpress: There’s no good GTK burning application. Well, at least for me there isn’t. I don’t know what it is, but neither Brasero, nor Gnomebaker or Nautilus CD Burning work well with my Philips CD burner. Enter: Recorder.
mashable.com: The market of applications managing various Internet-related tasks is divided generally into three parts: Windows-based, Mac OS X-compatible, and Linux-friendly. Some function across all platforms, or perhaps the most mainstream and consumer-centric of the two. We’re going to do Tux a solid today and see what’s up in the land of “Net apps” to save you from having to search the open source galaxy yourself.
arstechnica.com: Earlier this week, we looked at a collaborative project by Nokia and Mozilla which aims to port Firefox to the Qt development toolkit. Nokia's decision to fund Firefox development despite already having a strong investment in WebKit raises some intriguing questions.
raiden.net: One of the things that Microsoft has been silently beating Linux over the head with for the past couple of years is that, since Linux works so well on older, and lower end PC's, it is an inferior, obsolete, and outdated OS. I find FUD like this to be a bit annoying, as the inverse is true of Windows.
community.zdnet.co.uk/blog: A new Debian GNU/Linux Update was released a few weeks ago - well, actually one and a half new updates, to be precise. I just got around to giving it a try, and I'm pleased and impressed.
junauza.com: The latest series of the K Desktop Environment now utilizes Plasma, a new desktop and panel user interface tool. If you want to further enhance the look of your KDE 4 desktop, I have here a list of some of the most beautiful Plasma themes available
penguinpetes.com: Summer's going too fast, man. The kids are almost back in school, already, which makes this the perfect time for the grown-ups to huddle back to their simulated DOS directory and play at some goofy, childish fun. So once again, we crank up DOSBox and grab random stuff off the abandonware buffet. Sometimes for nostalgia, sometimes for thrills, and most of the time just for the endorphin rush from the masochism.
vizzzion.org: Last night Nvidia released a new beta version of their binary driver. This one has some new features, where especially a couple of RENDER pathes are now hardware accelerated. I've installed the driver on my desktop machine on a rather clean OpenSuse 11 and a 7600GS and tweaked it.
