Welcome to the 200th issue of DistroWatch Weekly.
Welcome to part 5 of our series on the KDE 3.5 Control Center. Today we'll be covering the Peripherals section of the Control Center, an area that controls all your most important external add on devices, such as your monitor, printer, keyboard and more. Let's look at each of these sections and get a good idea of what each does and how it affects your user experience.
I believe that every organization should have a NTP/time server if they have more than one computer on site. Having an NTP server will allow you to keep the times on all of your computers in sync. This helps when comparing the logs from various servers to trace through various events that happened.
Sam Hocevar recently became the next Debian Project Leader (DPL), defeating seven other candidates while running on a platform that emphasized ways to improve how project members interact. Hocevar's election comes at a time when Debian may be losing mindshare among both users and developers to Ubuntu, and looking for ways to improve its efficiencies and to mend internal divisions.
The ext3 filesystem is probably the most common filesystem used upon GNU/Linux machines. It isn't necessarily the fastest, the best, or the most modern filesystem but it does perform adequately for the majority of users.
Many more people are becoming interested in GNU/Linux, as even seasoned Microsoft users and advocates are beginning to question the issues surrounding the latest operating system from Redmond. The variety of GNU/Linux distributions, while a good thing, can make a difficult time for a user, especially a new user.
According to a recently uncovered filing in the long-running SCO v. IBM case, SCO tried to have Groklaw—along with a handful of people associated with the open-source movement, like Linus Torvalds—silenced back in 2004. In a letter sent to IBM, dated February 11, 2004, one of SCO's attorneys said that the company "had been told that IBM is a sponsor of Groklaw."
Now I'm as fond of Ubuntu as the next penguin, but I'm a bit of distro whore really -- I'm always trying new ones and my current system has all of Gentoo, SuSE and Ubuntu installed (and some other niche operating system on the other partition - Windows Vista I think it's called).
For some time now, I have been tinkering with Solaris 10; the robust Unix from Sun Microsystems. In the past, I have posted news of the free Solaris media kit and its pictures as well as published news of Open Solaris starter kit give away.
In this review I take a look at the latest Ubuntu release, Feisty Fawn 7.04. All aspects are examined ranging from installing and upgrading to performance and stability. New features such as the codec auto-suggest and "restricted drivers manager" are addressed, along with verdicts on the overall system.
I'll admit, right now, that my experience with openSUSE 10.2 was much better than the horror story that was SUSE 10.1. Maybe they really did make the changes that 10.1 needed to become viable. Maybe it was just that I installed KDE instead of GNOME. In any event, I was seriously considering using it as a main system, but it strikes me as more of an enterprise system than a home OS.
In this week's KDE Commit-Digest: Continued work across kdegames, with the kbattleship-rewrite merged back into trunk/. Start of scalable interface support in Kanagram. Further functionality enhancements implemented in the Konsole refactoring effort. Small refinements in KSysGuard.
There are those who believe, really believe in completely open source software, nothing proprietary and it’s a dream, it’s here but for most users it’s just a dream or not a concern at all. It’s Ubuntu versus Vista in everything from installing the operating system to configuring devices and installing drivers and which one comes out on top.
PUD is a Chinese distro based on Ubuntu 7.04 (Feisty) and the 2.6.20 kernel. They've patched in several filesystems and through using SquashFS for the loader filesystem, the ISO is a mere 193megs.
Looking for the safest Linux distribution? Hardening Linux author and security expert James Turnbull ponders the field and difficulties in ranking distro's security in this Q&A . He also weighs in on security tool strength, as in AppArmor versus SELinux, and other platform and application security conundrums.

I finally pulled the trigger and replaced Suse 10.2 on europa with Ubuntu 7.04. How I got to this point was long and involved. The results of the change were less than I anticipated. If you're curious about the long strange trip it's been then read on.
In The Beginning
You hear about the great macro feature of Emacs all the time. You see cheat sheets for Emacs key combinations all the time. But you never quite see the keyboard macro trick demonstrated clearly. Here's how it works:
With the release of Microsoft's new Windows operating system (Vista), more and more people are looking for alternatives to Windows for various reasons. In this tutorial I will show people who are willing to switch to Linux how they can set up a Linux desktop (Debian Etch in this article) that fully replaces their Windows desktop, i.e.
As Red Hat and its JBoss unit ramp up their SOA (service-oriented architectures) offerings and capabilities, they are re-emerging as a powerful mischief-maker to the established commercial vendors -- this time on the subject of data lifecycle in the age of SOA. But there soon could be much more mischief from Raleigh, N.C.
