linux.com: Finding an addictive computer game on a Friday evening can be dangerous. Instead of doing things you have been promising your wife, you spend the weekend in front of your computer playing the game and trying to explain that "this is for work." This is exactly what happened to me when I discovered Battle Tanks.
tomdryer.com: It was time for a new computer for my Grandparents. Their ancient Windows 98 PC had become so slow that it was unusable. The replacement, an inexpensive Acer PC, came with Windows Vista preinstalled. It was up to me to set up the new computer and support it. So I decided to wipe out Vista with a Debian 4 base install and set up an easy to use environment for my Grandparents.
Carla Schroder: This just keeps getting worse. Please tell me how anyone could think this is a good idea: "Me and my husband’s gonna be bringing you tech tips just about every month now….I don’t know nothing about Linux. Chester, he’s the smart one…”
meanderingpassage: Here’s a WOW folks! I know things aren’t good in “Vista Land” when Jim Louderback, the former editor-in-chief of PC Magazine
and Microsoft Windows fan boy, expresses serious doubts about Vista as he’s writing his last column..
wikinews.org: Wikinews has learned that Richard Stallman, the founder of the GNU Project, is confirmed to be safe in Peru after a massive 8.0 earthquake struck the country on August 15. It was earlier reported that he may have been missing.
wolfger.wordpress: The Linux distro wars are over. Ubuntu is the winner. Okay, I admit, that’s a surprising announcement from a guy who, less than a week ago, couldn’t stand Ubuntu. So why do I say it?
manchicken.com: Next time you go into Best Buy or Circuit City or $RETAILER, why don’t you bring your Kubuntu Live CD (okay, you can bring an Ubuntu Live CD if you really want) with you? I did that today, and it actually went really well. Here’s the story.
DesktopLinux: Desktop operating systems numbers, even when gathered by top research companies, such as IDG and Gartner, are often a bit fuzzy. When it comes to uncommon desktop operating systems, like Linux, the numbers often amount to little more than an educated guess. Now, a new open-source program, statix, promises to give accurate data on how many Linux desktops are actually in use.
kernelTRAP: "People who think 'volatile' really matters are just fooling themselves," Linus Torvalds quipped during a lengthy discussion on the Linux Kernel mailing list.
red hat mag: If a home chef wants to whip up a nice dinner for guests, he don’t want to have to understand the entire history of French cooking. Therefore, for me, the best benchmark of a code cookbook is how effectively I can go from the idea, “I need a script to do ‘foo’,” to having a script that does “foo” effectively.
informit.com: There are two kinds of snake oil in the software world that still seem to sell well. The first is DRM, where purveyors seem able to convince their customers that they can provide something that has been shown to be impossible. The other is that cross-platform graphical user interface.
mepis.org: MEPIS has announced the upload of the first official Beta of the upcoming 7.0 release of SimplyMEPIS. Version 6.9.60beta1 for 32 and 64 bit processors is available from the testing directory at the MEPIS subscriber site and the MEPIS public mirrors.
linux.com: Ever thought about how nice it would be if you could edit the files stored on your Web server directly without the cumbersome download-edit-upload routine? Web-based Distributed Authoring and Versioning (WebDAV) is the way to do it.
beranger: As "potentially dangerous" is a more or less infinite set these days, OpenBSD 4.2 will get a better approach to sudo.
laserjock.wordpress: The response to my first post was pretty overwhelming. I’ve got a little bit more openSUSE experience under my belt and wanted to talk a bit more about Gutsy:
vertito.blogspot: We all know most user's desktop runs and boots operating system from their harddisk. Simply from a harddisk, which is usually composed of files and folders. But trying to think how these data are scattered out or organized and logically located without overwriting each other and knowing where the other sector part ends and continued from your harddisk would be almost impossible for an average desktop user like me! And the light shows up.

computerweekly: The website has selected Red Hat Enterprise Linux as the platform to support the website, after previously using the less scalable Red Hat-sponsored Fedora open-source solution.

linux.com: No other hardware nowadays supports GNU/Linux as weakly as wireless network adapters. Between the constant release of new models and major vendors who are uninterested in supporting the operating system, free drivers for wireless cards are next to impossible to reverse engineer. Nor can you find many retailers willing to customize laptops as readily as they do workstations. In this situation, ndiswrapper and the Broadcom firmware cutter provide a functional, if not always satisfactory, solution.
