jldugger.livejournal: It's no secret that Canonical is a large proponent of Bazaar (bzr) and would like to use Ubuntu as a guinea pig for large scale deployments. At UDS Prague, James Westby gave an interview about using "distributed version control systems" (DVCS) for coordinating development. The interviewer is a bit confused about how the Ubuntu flavors interact, so I think an explanation of DVCS and Ubuntu development is in order.
utoronto.ca/blog: It's time to update my view of Ubuntu with my most recent set of feelings. Well, with why I feel my most recent set of feelings, which is that Ubuntu LTS is significantly inferior to Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
sharplinux.blogspot: As I mentioned in my last Independence Day post, most free software is free in the monetary sense of the word. One of Richard Stallman's memorable and concise ways of making the "free" distinction is to say "think free speech, not free beer." The problem with the term "free software" seems to be that many users can't think past the "free-as-in-beer" quality.
techspot.com/blog: Firefox is by far the most used alternative browser. I believe that comes in part thanks to its flexibility for customization and the myriad of useful add-ons you can get for it. My following tips, however, lay on the side of about:config tweaks.
agileskills2.org/blog: I find that Kubuntu needs a few critical tweaks before it is useable by end users, in particular, in the CJK market. Such tweaks are not very well documented and take quite some serious research efforts, even for an experienced Linux/Ubuntu server administrator.
debianadmin.com: FTP is a file transfer protocol for exchanging files over any TCP/IP based network to manipulate files on another computer on that network. There are many existing FTP client and server programs.
This tutorial shows how you can set up an OpenSUSE 11 desktop that is a full-fledged replacement for a Windows desktop, i.e. that has all the software that people need to do the things they do on their Windows desktops. The advantages are clear: you get a secure system without DRM restrictions that works even on old hardware, and the best thing is: all software comes free of charge.

practical-tech.com: OK, I’ve now tried KDE 4.1. I’d been assured that it would be better than KDE 4.0x. It is. That’s the good news. The bad news is that I still find KDE 4.1 to be inferior to KDE 3.5x. KDE’s developers believe that KDE 4.1 “can fully replace KDE 3 for end users.” I don’t see it.
opencomputing.blogspot: I've been running Hardy now for quite a while, and I've come to the conclusion that it isn't stable. I will probably be downgrading to Gutsy very soon, however much I dislike the idea of doing so. To me, downgrading doesn't feel like I'm being part of the solution, but rather that I'm just bypassing the problem.

odysseus.wordpress: My Linux evolution went from Linspire to Mepis to PCLinuxOS to Ubuntu. I stayed with PCLinuxOS and Ubuntu for the longest. However, I have always read good things about another distribution called Linux Mint. So, I downloaded the latest iso and tried it out to see how it all worked.
epochtimes.com: People in the industry foresee a time in which for many people, the only thing they'll need on a computer is a browser. The browser is just extraordinarily strategic.

metaverse.wordpress: As you probably know already, openSUSE 11.0 is out. There seems to be a lot of misconceptions regarding the inclusion of KDE4 in openSUSE 11.0 that are leading to a great deal of anger on the mailing list.
