fedora-announce (LWN): Outgoing Fedora leader Max Spevack has sent a goodbye letter of sorts from FUDCon and announced that the new project leader will be Paul Frields.
martin.ankerl.com: I have just discovered that ext3 defaults to reserving 5% of its partition exclusively for root, as a precaution measure that your system does not get FUBAR when you use it for your root partition. Thankfully this is easy to fix:
distrogue.blogspot: KDE 4.0.0 was released on Friday. For the KDE team, it represents a huge leap forward in many areas, one of them being that they didn't add a K onto the name of every new app. For once. But elsewhere, KDE 4 brings huge enhancements both on and under the surface.

fareast.linuxdiary: Is a minimal version of PCLinuxOS that comes with just the bare bones, allowing you to install exactly what you need; the liveCD is a very fast boot, and true to its Mandriva roots is extremely easy to configure through the Control Centre.

Linux Today: One of the recurring themes that keeps popping up in the Linux community is this pressing need to get Linux on the desktop. I have often pondered in the past that such a goal is indeed worthy--once we actually figure out just exactly what "desktop" means.
businessweek.com: Internet Explorer has held a virtual monopoly on the mainland, home to 160 million Internet users. Now, Firefox is pushing for more market share.
reddevil62-techhead.blogspot: I've probably tried every one of the top 20 distros in the Distrowatch rankings – and a good few outside it - and I have to admit that few have impressed or surprised me as much as Mandriva 2008 Flash.
certcities.com: While I rarely get excited over free applications, the KDE news-feed reader Akregator is proving to be an exception to the rule. This simple tool has made my life so much better that it's difficult to talk about it without sounding like a late-night infomercial for OxiClean.
c|net: KDE programmers released a significantly revamped version of their Linux graphical interfaces software on Friday, incorporating several features that also appear in Windows Vista and Mac OS X.
linux.com: The Asus Eee PC has been heralded as a groundbreaking new computing experience and great for children. While the computer didn't bowl me over, my kids were another matter.
ruminations: Two tasks remained under the heading Sharing: settting up file/printserver and setting up a share. The first task ran into a snag quickly with an error message that the name ‘localhost’ wasn’t correct for a DNS server. Setting up a Samba share wasn’t error free as well.
desktoplinux: PC vendor Lenovo has promised ThinkPads with pre-installed Novell SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop 10 for some time now. Lenovo will deliver the goods the week of Jan. 14.
The second pre-release of Mandriva Linux 2008 Spring is here. This pre-release brings a near-final snapshot of KDE 4.0 (final 4.0 packages are currently being uploaded to the Cooker repositories), new NVIDIA and ATI drivers, the chance to test the experimental nouveau open source driver for NVIDIA cards, kernel 2.6.24rc7, and more.
Daniel Robbins: Several days ago, the Gentoo community discovered the unfortunate news that the Gentoo Foundation's charter has been revoked for several weeks. I have received permission from my employer to return and serve as President of the Gentoo Foundation, renew its charter, and then work in some capacity to help to get Gentoo going in the right direction from a legal, community and technical perspective.
raiden's realm: TinyFlux (aka PcFluxboxOS) is a remastering of PcLinuxOS done in much the same way as TinyMe, but with Fluxbox as the window manager instead of KDE. It's the new kid on the block in an ever increasingly crowded world of Linux distributions.
blogs.techtarget.com: I recently tried out a test system with an Ubuntu Server 7.10 JeOS build. The JeOS (Just Enough Operating System, pronounced “juice" ) concept for Linux works well if one needs just enough to run a test system.
internetnews.com: Nearly every year for the last decade I've heard some pundit or vendor proclaim from the rooftops: This is the year of the Linux desktop. Yet, year in and year out, the proclamations don't materialize.
linux.com: Blacktree software's free Quicksilver Mac OS X utility won over users by letting them start typing the name of the file or app they need, and popping up the best matches in a launcher. Quicksilver went open source recently, but you don't have to wait for a port to start using it on your Linux machines. Two clones already exist: Katapult for KDE and the newest competitor, GNOME Do.
