castrojo.wordpress: I am going to follow this guy’s saga on switching to Ubuntu for a week. I like his writing style and sarcastic sense of humor. However I found the responses to his problems to be all too common these days.
informationweek.com/blog: Two responses to things I've written recently are worth commenting on. Both were responses to my post about Windows 7 being more of a previous-version-of-Windows-killer than a Linux-killer -- and both bring up further points to be argued and defended.
It has always amazed me how many people pirate. As the well-known anti-piracy video clip says, “You wouldn’t steal a car, you wouldn’t steal a handbag,” but people do regularly steal software and other copyrighted materials. They seem to have an innate belief that software should be free.
Technically, pirates don’t steal - they infringe copyright. Neither do they rape, pillage, sink ships, or make people walk the plank into shark-infested waters. The “pirate” label seems to be part of an unsuccessful campaign to encourage people to pay for intellectual property. Calling people names rarely works.
phoronix.com: With the 2.6.29 merge window still open, earlier this week he started a new thread entitled Btrfs for mainline.
iarematt.com: One of the first things I did when I moved from Vista to Ubuntu was install a nice looking theme. The default Ubuntu theme is pretty decent, but I dont like the brown and when browsing posts like this and this, I knew I wanted a sexier look for my laptop.
blog.i-no.de: With 2.6.28 came ext4, which I've been using on several not-so-important filesystems for a while now. I thought I'd kill two birds with one stone and switch back to ext4 on a crypted volume. Shouldn't be all that hard, right?
tuxtraining.com: This HOWTO will explain how to install the Amazon MP3 Downloader application under openSUSE 11 (both 11.0 and 11.1). Unfortunately, as of this writing, Amazon only provides a package for openSUSE 10.3, which will not work directly with 11.0. But you can get the downloader working under 11 with some manual steps.
armageddon08.wordpress: The first step to start using GNU/Linux is to find out which distribution is the right one for you. So how do you go about choosing the right distro for your computer. Let’s find out.
fosswire.com: Welcome back to Part 2 of this series - pitting GNOME’s Evolution Personal Information Manager (PIM) suite against KDE’s Kontact.
kmandla.wordpress: Xubuntu and I parted ways a long time ago. When I started using Ubuntu, I quickly orphaned my $3000 laptop in favor of a $300 secondhand machine, and Xubuntu became my weapon of choice. A few months ago I promised a fair look at Xubuntu 8.10.
linuxinsider.com: Sylvania's G Netbook Meso offers a nice-looking screen and plenty of ports -- you get three USBs as well as a VGA. The available Ubuntu Netbook Remix OS will give you the option to effortless switch between two GUI styles.
techradar.com: In the past, Linux was not overly blessed with decent budgeting software, and installing GnuCash was regarded by many as the epitome of a descent into dependency hell. Thankfully, things have since changed.
aronzak.wordpress: One of the questions that many new Linux users ask is “Should I run antivirus software on Linux?” I have two reasons why not to and three why you should.
The migration to Linux, is though Open Source applications, on Windows, creating a comfort zone, a feeling of familiar desktop apps, something which isn't alien, when you make the transition to the Linux Desktop.
