arstechnica.com: Mozilla has officially announced the availability of the second Firefox 3.1 alpha. This release includes support for the highly-anticipated HTML 5 "video" element and a handful of other features that move the browser forward.
linux.com: Eight years ago, computer stores stocked a choice of GNU/Linux distributions -- established ones like Caldera, Red Hat, and SUSE, and newcomers like Corel, Progeny, and Stormix. Now, only Ubuntu and openSUSE offer box sets, and both face challenges that other distributions found unsolvable.
linuxplanet.com: OpenSUSE 11.0 does a great job on the desktop, but it shines equally as bright in the server role. Everything you need to set up most any type of server comes on the OpenSUSE 11.0 installation DVD. The trick is narrowing down the options to the ones you'll really need.
openlogic.com/blogs: This week theme has been "who's going to pay for open source?" It's shown up in a number of blogs, like Matt Asay's. In several blog posts he's said things like "Who will pay for open source in the future?" and "Someone has to pay for this stuff, and it's not going to be governments." Roberto Gallopini's post quotes Larry Augustine saying that customers need to be educated on the value of open source. I'm sorry, it's just not the simple.
linuxjournal.com: Over the years I've noted that Java-based music and sound applications have increased in number and quality, yet no comprehensive list or summaries have covered these advances. And so at long last I present this survey of music and sound applications that require Java.
opera.com: Thats right, Opera 9.6 is soon ready for its first beta flight. We have now frozen all features and only critical fixes go in. Really soon now, the beta will be released, but we want more feedback from you guys before we do so.
heise-online.co.uk: When running a Linux system, a user relies on the creator of the Linux distribution to provide them with a stable, fast, secure and bug-free experience. But given the experience of recent weeks, it may be worth considering how that user makes sure that's what they get.
redhat.com: Today we've reached a major milestone in this progress. We have done a successful compose of all the existing and as of yesterday pending updates for Fedora 8 and Fedora 9, all signed with our new keys. These updates will soon hit mirrors in a new set of directory locations.
intranetjournal.com: Recently I found myself presented with the possibility of switching to Apple's OS X. Keeping in mind that I already have a Mac in our home in the form of my wife's computer, the idea of me using it did get me thinking. What would it take for me to completely abandon Linux and return to the world of closed source operating systems?
brajeshwar.com: Many big corps support Free and Open Source Software in different ways. Everything’s strictly business, just that the company doesn’t need to burn down half the Amazon Rainforest to do it.
hitechsquad.com: I have an upcoming project which requires a Ubuntu server and after doing some PC repairs and upgrades I had a few bits left over.
tuxtoday.wordpress: I recently got myself a new laptop. After having tried Fedora, Mint, and Debian Etch on it, I decided to go the Debian Sid route.
people.planetpostgresql.org: Soon after they announced, I'd been hoping to take Google Chrome for a test drive. My big problem though? I run Linux.
raiden.net: In this second of three parts we will be looking at a ready-to-use MythTV Linux Distro that comes from a different slice of the Linux family tree. MythBuntu is built upon Ubuntu. It should be interesting to see just how well it performs. So let's get started...
dedoimedo.com: There's a popular saying that if you manage to install Gentoo on the first run, this means you have done something wrong. Gentoo has always been the most difficult distro to install, even though it promises great rewards for the die-hards willing to take the pain. That is, until Sabayon came along.
montanalinux.org: As has been reported elsewhere, take the front page of Red Hat's website for example, Red Hat has "acquired" Qumranet Inc for a little over $100 million. In a presentation a month or two back for the BillingsLUG meeting... I played some demo videos of Qumranet's Solid ICE product and discussed KVM.
techtarget.com: SUSE Linux administrators will have a choice in intrusion detection systems next year: They can use the complex, military-grade Security-Enhanced Linux, or SELinux or instead Novell Inc.'s simpler AppArmor security tool.
42gems.com: Why Linux? I think every Linux user gets asked that question sooner or later, and just about every Linux blog has a post. I’ll give one reason why I use Linux. Its not my strongest argument for Linux (or my weakest for that matter) and I don’t think its of the upmost importance, but its still a pretty good reason.
omputerworlduk.com: One of the jibes about GNU/Linux from the closed-source crowd is that the only reason there so few security exploits against it is that its market share is too small for crackers to care. Against that background, the following development must represent some kind of milestone:
