moneyhighstreet.com: If you followed our last two articles you will have seen that while Microsoft Money and Quicken are powerful applications, the UK versions of both haven't been updated in a few years. So we decided to dig a little deeper to see if we could come up with an alternative.
blog.funtoo.org: "For those who are kind of tired of the existing structure - well, I totally feel your pain. I will not be forking the project, and you may be bummed about that."

phoronix.com: Last week AMD introduced the ATI Radeon HD 3400 and 3600 series, which are the new low-end graphics processors compared to the Radeon HD 3800 series. At hand today we have the Sapphire Radeon HD 3650 512MB graphics card as we deliver the first Linux benchmarks for this RV635 GPU.
Serdar Yegulalp: I've been running Ubuntu Linux on my notebook, a Sony VAIO TX model, for some time now. I'm impressed with how stable it's been. But because getting used to Linux itself can be jarring for Windows folks, I decided not to just dive in and hope I'm able to swim.
Jono Bacon: Recently, Aaron Seigo, a good friend of mine and well known KDE member did an interview with ComputerWorld. I want to make a few things clear here:
Dana Blankenhorn: One of the big concerns arising from the pending Microsoft acquisition of Yahoo, and of proprietary open source in general, is the fear that a project’s owner will abuse its power, even kill a worthwhile project. Well, fork that.
terminally-incoherent: I got my brand new Dell Latitude D830 laptop today, and the first thing I did with it was installing Gutsy. Dell was nice enough to partition the drive for me so I didn’t have to bother with resizing. This is possibly like the single most useful service they offer in their store.
meandubuntu.wordpress: One of the things I do from time to time is play in one of them-there rock ‘n roll bands. And, of course, I used various software under WinXP for pre-production and other such musical gyrations. I’d like to get my home studio back up and working in Ubuntu.
Paula Rooney: Let’s forget about search for a moment, and Microsoft’s obvious need to buy a leading online company or face extinction. Microsoft’s buy of Yahoo would give the Redmond, Wash company control over a top open source e-mail company, open source projects and an open source infrastructure. So this deal would put Microsoft directly into the open source software business.
Also: What happens if Microsoft buys Yahoo?
techthrob.com: I love Ubuntu. I've been using Linux for years, and I think it's the greatest distribution to date. But let's face it - like it or not, the user experience is worrisome at times. Things don't work, programs act up, and hair gets torn out.
internetnews.com: PHP 4, deployed on tens of millions of servers globally, is among the most successful languages of all time. But its run is coming to an end.
phorolinux.com: Dreamlinux is a Brazilian distribution based on Debian and Morphix. Recently, the second beta release of Dreamlinux 3.0 has been released. phorolinux has some screenshots.
expresscomputeronline.com: Why Linux? Well, the answer to this question was given in detail by PK Mishra, Senior Consulting Architect, Novell India in his presentation titled ‘Linux for eGovernance solution.’
freesoftwaremagazine.com: Sadly, there’s nothing genuinely new about this story, but a recent discussion on the Fedora Games mailing list demonstrates the sort of chilling effect on innovation and impoverishment of the intellectual commons that occurs today because of a broken, outmoded US patent system and its misapplication to software. I’m at a loss for words to express how absurd these “patents” are.
reddevil62-techhead: We've all been there. The shiny new PC is loaded with the latest Linux distribution. The desktop has been tweaked, system updates sorted, data imported and packages downloaded. It's time to play some tunes, kick back a bit, watch a film or check out the latest movie trailers online. Welcome to Codec Land.
After my previous overview of Open Movie Editor (OME), I decided to create a small How-To regarding an easily obtainable piece of functionality that's not yet standard within OME.

webware.com: After making noise with the reintroduction of its Firefox add-ons directory last year, Mozilla is taking a step closer to integrating it with the upcoming beta of Firefox 3, which is set to go out to beta testers next week.
redmonk.com: There must be something going around, something in the water. That was how one commenter put it to me this week. How else to explain the rash of open source acquisitions? From MySQL to Covalent to Trolltech, the appetite for open source vendors appears to be insatiable.
