nixcraft: So how do you find out how fast is your hard disk under Linux? Is it running at SATA I (150 MB/s) or SATA II (300 MB/s) speed w/o opening computer case or chassis?
iTWire: A look through most department store catalogues reveals a bevy of alleged “deal” laptops; you know the type – cheap and cheerful, sub-$1,000 – but far from bleeding-edge specs. These may be naff at resource-hungry Windows apps but can be a great Linux machine for no extra cost. But can you check out any hardware gotchas prior to purchase, and be sure the Penguin will run?
kmandla.wordpress.com: Part of the real benefit of Ubuntu and the ‘forums, is that so many people from so many backgrounds and cultures are drawn together by a common interest. bapoumba is a moderator who has a distinctly different perspective on many of the issues that surround Linux, Ubuntu and the community that has grown up with it.
UNetbootin is a tool that allows you to install various Linux distributions (Ubuntu, Fedora, Mandriva, OpenSuSE, Debian, ArchLinux) from a Windows or a Linux desktop over the internet (i.e., you do not need to burn the Ubuntu, Fedora, ... CDs).
adamw’s blog: We got 2008 (mostly) finalized today. Well, tomorrow morning, Paris time. I’m really looking forward to the next few weeks - 2008 is shaping up to be a really killer release.
kernelTRAP: When a Linux user reported a repeatedly high load average on an idle server, tracking the problem to a specific patch labeled, "user of the jiffies rounding code", Andrew Morton replied, "this is unexpected. High load average is due to either a task chewing a lot of CPU time or a task stuck in uninterruptible sleep."

tips.vlaurie.com: A few months ago I installed Ubuntu Linux on an old PC using the free standard distribution CD. I am very impressed with it and thought I would tell you the things about it that I like.

blogs.cnet.com: One of the advantages of Apple Macintosh computers is that simply by not being Windows, they are immune to the plague of malware (malicious software) that constantly strikes at Windows based machines. Linux has this advantage too, plus it's cheaper. A computer running Linux may be ugly compared to a Mac, but it can cost in the neighborhood of 20% as much (more on this later).
krizka.net: Last week I posted a harsh review about OpenSuse 10.3, but I also pointed out that there were some good things about it. Here is a quick summary of what I enjoyed during my excursion with this GNU/Linux distribution.
- Gutsy bug reporting
- xchat fun with festival!
Phoronix: The good folks over at ASUS have sent over the P5E3 Deluxe, which is based upon Intel's new X38 Chipset and continues in the usual ASUS fashion of pushing new (and often unexpected) innovations onto the motherboard. Without spoiling the review of this motherboard that will be published shortly, the ASUS P5E3 Deluxe is one of the most innovative motherboards we have seen to date and it packs one very exciting and unusual feature.
onlinedev.blogspot: I used compiz fusion on a old laptop. There it seemed to work very fast and good. Now recently I bought a new laptop. Normally it should be much faster, because I now have dualcore and a Nvidia 8600 GT. After installing compiz fusion it was just slower than my previous computer.
ubuntu-tutorials.com: Well I am a bit pleasantly surprised to say that I’m very much enjoying my time in KDE right now. There are some bugs, as is to be expected, but for the most part I’m continuing to be very productive and I’m learning a lot.
blogbeebe: I finally followed through my on my threat to replace openSUSE with Ubuntu. I've replaced openSUSE 10.3 GM with Ubuntu 7.10 Beta 1. Based on my experiences with both on my machines, I consider Ubuntu 7.10, even though it is still in beta, to be the better of the two distributions.
carla schroder: Do you need a Macintosh computer for high-quality, satisfying digital photo management? Macs include the excellent iPhoto for no extra cost, and if you want to spend money the Aperture photo-management application is first-rate.
