dawningvalley.com: Open source operating systems obviously give more bang for the buck than any other operating system in the world. After all, they’re free, and you can’t get lower than free (unless you’re Kaspersky). However, what about pre-installed Ubuntu machines? Do they beat their Windows and OS X competitors in the bang for the buck category?
blog.ibeentoubuntu: My recent post about Mono was sincere, and Boycott Novell has the story about Debian wrong, but Gnome actually is pushing an alternative. Vala is a new language developed by Gnome specifically for developing Gnome apps. It has a syntax very similar to Java or C# (closer to C# from what I've read) and a precompiler which maps the Vala to C source and header files
lazytechguy.com: I just bought a new laptop and KDE guys decide to pamper me by releasing the greatest desktop manager in form of KDE 4.1. To add cherry to the cake OpenSUSE guys made a Live CD and gave me the opportunity to fiddle with it.
chinwong.com: IT’S difficult to write about the Aspire One from Acer without gushing. Out of the box, this mini-notebook is the perfect traveling companion for anyone who simply needs to surf the Web, send e-mail and perform typical office tasks such as typing up documents, working on spreadsheets or giving a presentation.
technocrat.net: An open source project called Code_Swarm has come up with an animated process video outlining the various ways open source projects get started and are refined.
linuxhaxor.net: I’ve been using GNU Parted to slice and dice my disk in preference to the fdisk for almost as long as I’ve been using Linux. We all fill up our hard-drives from time to time, but thanks to Gnome GParted, rearranging disk partitions isn’t as terrifying as it used to be.
linuxshellaccount.blogspot: NT Chicken: Will cross the road in June. No, August. September for sure. OS/2 Chicken: It crossed the road in style years ago, but it was so quiet that nobody noticed.
jaysonrowe.wordpress: I’ve often wondered why more of the popular Linux distro’s don’t adopt what most new user’s to Linux would feel as “normal” as a default layout. I wonder how many “newbie” Linux users HATE the two panels taking up screen-space, yet have no clue that it can be consolidated into one.
seanrtilley.blogspot: I have had a thought. Upon looking upon a identi.ca today, I had a thought. While we have a VERY nice alternative to Twitter, what about a full-on alternative to Myspace?
thebeezspeaks.blogspot: We have known about the Microsoft muchkins all our lives. Those are people who are paid to scan the Internet for unfavorable articles and use the comment facilities to do what Microsoft does best: spread FUD. As far as I know there is no such equivalent in the Linux world. It just seems like that.

linux-guider.blogspot: KDE 4 is the current series of releases of the K Desktop Environment. The first version (4.0.0) of this series was released on 11 January 2008. KDE 4.1 was released on July 29, 2008. KDE 4.1 includes a shared emoticon theming system which is used in PIM and Kopete, and DXS.
celettu.wordpress: The last week, I’ve been struggling with KDE 4.1. I really want to like it. Actually, I do like it. It’s stable, it’s fast, and it’s gorgeous. I love the Oxygen look, the plasmoids, the KWin desktop effects…it all looks great.
susegeek.com: gDesklets is another great tool like Google Gadgets for bringing mini programs called desklets such as weather forecasts, news tickers, system information displays, or music player controls, onto your desktop, where they are sitting there in a symbiotic relationship of eye candy and usefulness.

ubuntuforums.org: Yesterday evening I sent one debug version BIOS about this issue to Ryan, ask him to help us verify again. This morning Ryan replied me his testing result. Almost bugs are fixed by this BIOS.
catswhocode.com: Some days ago, I wrote a post about 30 gnome themes to enhance your Ubuntu desktop. In order to make one more step in Linux desktop customization, here is a list of 10 very cool icons sets for your Linux desktop.
