fsckin.com: I picked up a new Pharos iGPS-500 GPS Receiver from Newegg.com earlier this week for under 60 bones. Pretty rad, if I do say so myself. Getting it working in Ubuntu Hardy required a bit of research.
Dana Blankenhorn: A great mobile Linux device starts with a set of requirements. It’s not enough to say, oh we’ll use Prizm or we’ll build it with Qtopia, the LiMo stack, OpenMoko or Android. Those are how questions. They’re about the developer. Let’s look at it instead from the user’s point of view.
blogs.techrepublic.com: So today I read that Gartner has finally jumped on the Open Source bandwagon. I honestly thought this was a hold over April Fools joke. Seriously. I distinctly remember Gartners’ take on open source being a slight guffaw at best.
I am often dismayed by the misappropriation of the term open source. Companies apply the term to products that are free though not open source. It’s a classic marketing maneuver to leverage that already has broad recognition.
linux-watch.com: Some days, like it or not, you need a lawyer. For most business purposes, picking the right law firm isn't usually that big of a deal.
aplawrence.com: At Linux in the long run I expressed the opinion that Linux in general could suffer when Linus Torvalds steps aside or dies. That opinion is generally unpopular with the Linux community, but I think it's defensible.

gentoo.org: Roy Bamford, the newly elected President of the Gentoo Foundation's trustees, spoke with David Abbott from LinuxCrazy. He talked about recent challenges the Gentoo Foundation faces, among other topics. You can learn about the reinstatement of the foundation, short- and long-term plans, a possible move to the Software Freedom Conservancy and answers to some common questions.
helium.com: When you first think of Apple, the first thing that usually comes to mind is the dock. If you are not an avid Apple user or just don't know what a dock is, it's the nifty looking application launcher at the bottom of every apple computer. It launches programs and keeps track of opened an minimized ones. The question is are there any great docks to use on the Linux operating system?
uduzit.wordpress: For those of you in the know about such things, this information may seem a bit behind the curve. I just wish to say that the move from Ubuntu Feisty Fawn to the Gutsy Gibbon version of Ubuntu is totally painless.
traveller301.wordpress: The install of Fedora goes much faster than the openSUSE install and was very well done. I used the install DVD and chose Gnome (though KDE may be ‘my thing’; or not). Fedora recognized that I had a UPS attached via USB.
news.com.au: Charlton Heston, the Oscar-winning actor who achieved stardom playing larger-than-life figures went on to become a best-selling author, a contentious Hollywood labor leader, an unapologetic gun advocate and darling of conservative causes, has died. He was 84. For us geeks, he is probably best known for barking the order, "Get your paws off me you damn dirty ape!"
QGRUBEditor is a graphical frontend for managing the GRUB bootloader. By using QGRUBEditor, you do not have to mess around with the GRUB configuration in /boot/grub/menu.lst anymore. This article shows how to install and use QGRUBEditor on Ubuntu 7.10.
hehe2.net: Computing is fun! Well at least thats until Microsoft drove it out of the equation. On the flipside of things, there is a whole different world of OS names, some are funny, some are insightful, some are romantic, others are cute, some are too small to fill their creators’ huge egos. So if you ever wondered what your favorite Linux distro means, you will probably find the explanation here:

phoronix.com: The beta of Fedora 9 was released just short of two weeks ago, but the Fedora Project has released new Rawhide snapshots of Fedora in its live form. No installation DVDs are being made available due to bugs, but there are 2008-04-04 Rawhide snapshots for both the GNOME and KDE LiveCDs.
riehle.org: As a researcher, imprecise naming bothers me. The general confusion around the terms commercial open source, professional open source, and community open source warrants closer analysis.
Dana Blankenhorn: While lots of people (including Paula) were ga-ga over the promise of mobile Linux as exhibited at Intel’s Developer Forum in Shanghai, I couldn’t help noticing that the devices shown were uglier than Bette Davis in Whatever Happened to Baby Jane?
blogbeebe.blogspot: It's still officially a beta at this point and I've been religiously applying the updates when they show up. Fortunately, this time around, none of the updates have forced me to reinstall Ubuntu like I had to the last time. But that still doesn't mean the adventuring is over. No, not by a long shot. Where do I start?
daringfireball.net: After a few weeks in the arms of Firefox 3 betas, I’ve returned to Safari as my daily browser. Unsurprisingly, it’s the interface that drove me back.
