screenage.de/blog: “top” is one of those programs, that are used quite often but actually nobody talks about. It just does its job: showing statistics about memory, cache and cpu consumption, listing processes and so on. It’s the ncurses based “htop” and we’ll have a closer look at it now.
thebatt.com: On too many occasions I've found myself staring dumbfounded at my computer screen, wondering "what's going on in there?"

Glyn Moody: So begins Eric Raymond's famous analysis of why free software works, The Cathedral and the Bazaar. But alongside this deep-rooted, conceptual subversion, there is Subversion the program, a new release of which has just appeared:
skywake-andstuff.blogspot: Having spent the last three days downloading openSUSE 11.0 only for it to finish downloading at 11:10 PM last night I must say it was worth the three days of waiting for what is probably the simplest and most complete OS install I have ever done.
kroah.com: As part of the Linux Foundation Technical board, we confront the issue of closed source Linux kernel modules all the time, and we wanted to do something that could be seen as a general "public statement" about them that is easy to understand and point to when people have questions.
itwire.com: In my last article I talked about changing Linux so that software updates come from your ISPs local Linux mirror, which may not count towards your monthly download allowance. In this article I'll chat about how to install applications.

vivapinkfloyd.blogspot: There are many ways to learn Linux, and I can't think of one as being the 'best'. Of course, something may work for some users while failing miserably for others. I remember that when I started I made some very dumb questions.
crn.com: Blowing away a computer and installing a different operating system is all part of a day's work for the Test Center. In fact, some projects in the Test Center over the past year have included a lot of time spent simply installing and reinstalling various Linux distributions on a single machine.
greenhughes.com: I can't help noticing the number of Asus EEE PCs around now, it is strange to think that twelve months ago these weren't really about and there was still discussion of when will be the "year of the Linux desktop". And now Canonical has been working with a couple of them to produce the Ubuntu Netbook Remix.
useopensource.blogspot: I don't know which stars aligned to cause this, but every single news website that I tested with Ubuntu 8.04 LTS now has a correctly working video feed! I wasn't expecting this.

copywriterunderground.com: My six year-old HP laptop has never failed me. But lately, it has been making me wait. Was I screwed? Time to shell out for another laptop?
terkeurst.org: In the past I have tried a number of Linux distributions. All those reviews ended with the feeling; “nice for a geek but I don’t think the rest of world wants to go back to the commandline and non consistent GUI’s”.
tech.blorge.com: Download Day came and went, boasting an impressive 8 million downloads in the first 24 hours. Today, they’ve almost doubled that number in a little over a half a week later. Now that users have field tested the new product, we’d like to take a look at some of great and not-so-great features and capabilities of the new Firefox.
