redhatmagazine.com: Joel Cohen is an Emmy award-winning writer and associate producer of The Simpsons. He’s also a keynote speaker at the Red Hat Summit this June. The show is all hand-drawn and digitally animated, and the movie was too. For that purpose, crudely animated scenes were produced with Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
vivapinkfloyd.blogspot: K3b is the KDE CD/DVD burner, capable of burning data CDs/DVDs, as well as CD/DVD ISO images, create audio CDs, rip audio CDs and video DVDs. Statistics show it is the favourite burning application of Linux users.
phoronix.com: Just shy of two months since Compiz 0.7.4 was released, Compiz 0.7.6 is now available. This update has a rewritten Place plug-in to dramatically improve multi-output behavior, configurable multi-output behavior, removed plane plug-in in favor of the wall plug-in, removed cube wallpaper painting in favor of the Compiz Fusion wallpaper plug-in, panel and desktop selection mode is now available in the switcher plug-in, and improved painting behavior.
tombuntu.com: PCMan File Manager (or PCManFM) is a lightweight alternative to GNOME’s Nautilus file manager or Konqueror/Dolphin in KDE. I found it to be an excellent option for more sophisticated GNOME users, as well as those with slower computers.
techiemoe.com: Slitaz is one of an increasing number of distributions that came to me out of the blue via a random suggestion. These are quickly becoming my favorites because very often I'm pleasantly surprised by them. At just about 25 megabytes, Slitaz qualifies for the "ultra-lightweight" division.
ostatic.com: The GNU General Public License is nearly 20 years old (version 1 came out in 1989). In that time there have been at least 100 million lawsuits filed in the US (and that's a conservative estimate). Amazingly enough, not one of those millions of court cases has actually tested the GPL's validity. How can that be - and is it a problem for the open source software movement?
ostatic.com: Nightlife will give people the ability "to donate idle capacity from their own computers to an open, general-purpose Fedora-run grid for processing socially beneficial work and scientific research that requires access to large amounts of computing power.
daniweb.com/blogs: Now I am not averse to a little innovative marketing, and let's face it Mozilla and Firefox certainly know how to milk the hyperbole cow, but I cannot help but wonder if downloads in a day is the record they ought to be aiming at.
linux.com: Last month Mandriva announced its latest Spring edition. Despite a few minor glitches, after several weeks of testing the two Mandriva flavors, I have finally come across a distro that gives you the best of the GNU/Linux and proprietary worlds in terms of ease of use, range of software, and stability.
ibeentoubuntu.com: Right now, there are three applications proposed for the Gnome desktop which are not out of the running, but definitely aren't near crossing the finish line.
zdnet.com.au: Web 2.0, with its complex sites and rich Ajax applications, is an increasingly demanding platform for a browser. In this review feature, we look at how the leading browsers measure up.
ducea.com: Earlier this week I’ve read this article: “Defragmentation of Linux Filesystems“. The title and the headline made me interested enough, to go ahead and read it and see if there was something there to show me that linux filesystems do need defragmentation. The result was that I was not convinced at all. Still the reason for this post is not a technical one, but a human one.

groklaw.net: The Shuttleworth Foundation has sent out a press relase explaining what it believes is wrong with OOXML as a standard, and stating its conviction that the the South Africa Bureau of Standards has a strong case for appeal.
practical-tech.com: Over the years, I’ve grown quite fond of KDE for my Linux desktops. To me, it offered the right combination of ease of use and access to Linux’s power-user resources. Now, though, one of the forthcoming changes in KDE 5.1 is already annoying me and it’s barely in beta.
This is the second update to GNOME 2.22. Come and see all the bug fixing,
all the new translations and all the updated documentation brought to
you by the wonderful team of GNOME contributors! A lot of work has been
done in the stable branch to make it even more solid than it was.
