freesoftware mag: Despite jeering at Windows for the infamous system freezes and blue screens of death, there are and will be times when your Linux computer just locks up: the cursor is frozen and even invoking a console by Ctrl + Alt + [F2, F3, ...] to close down the X windows session running on F7 is non-functional.
One of the things i like most about (gnu/?) linux, other than everything, is how you can get it to do things you never knew you wanted… and that’s what i’m all about, i like to dig down the stuff that creates the WOW-effect, even if it has little or no purpose at all. Being able to convert 8 friends so far, makes me certain that these things really do work on a psychological level.
tech.blorge: Canonical and Dell have recently decided to offer a subset of Dell desktop computers and laptops pre-installed with Ubuntu Linux. Many, however, say that Linux is just not ready for the end user market because of its complexity.
polishlinux: Polish Ministry of Internal Affairs, responsible for National Computerization project is currently working on National Interoperability Framework. The framework more or less follows the general ideas of the European document, but there are major differences, especially concerning the key issue for the FLOSS community — the attitude to open-source software.
Penguin Pete: I almost fell out of my chair... and it's a recliner. Slashdot AGAIN posted what is becoming one of the greatest cliched titles since "Netcraft confirms it...": Have another look at The Year of Linux on the Desktop. Now I know what the movie "Groundhog Day" was about. But like it or not, there are some people who will NEVER adopt Linux, no matter what.
ZDNet: Linux (and open source software in general) has been occupying quite a bit of my attention. I’m still a Windows user, too (at least at school and on the networks I run), so what’s the deal? Because I believe that a fundamental shift is occurring in education, among young people, and ultimately in the industry at large.
LinuxToday: It seems, for now, that the plan to negate the threat of Microsoft's patent protection plan with certain Linux partners has succeeded. The statements made by Microsoft disavowing any notion that they will fall under the new version of the GNU General Public License (GPLv3) seems to confirm that.
/home/liquidat: Recently a patch was sent to the KDE file manager development list to implement tab functions in Dolphin. Following this patch a discussion about pro and cons of tabs in Dolphin has started.
Version 2.2.16 of the GNU Image Manipulation Program is a bug-fix release in the stable 2.2 series. This release fixes security problems in a number of file load plug-ins.
Tryst with Linux: I have a real open source crisis at my hands. My ’school’ IT department has been pushing for the implementation of Microsoft Office 2007 in our 60 machines. The funny thing is, since our IT head is also our supplier, he too is pushing for this because he probably gets a commission.
sheehantu: I grew up with Microsoft operating systems. I’ve been through MS-DOS 5.0, Win 3.1, Windows 95, 98, Millenium Edition, NT 4.0, 2000, and XP. Notice how I stopped there. After over a decade of Windows, I decided to give Ubuntu a try and now have no reason to install Vista. Here are nine reasons why I chose Ubuntu:
shift-backspace: Slackware Linux 12.0 was formally released on July 1, 2007. I have been looking forward to reviewing Slackware for a few weeks and now that the official release of version 12.0 has occurred, I cannot think of a better time to review it.
OOo Tips: Is it possible to set up chapters or sections in an OpenOffice Writer document so that I can jump to them easily, like maybe with tabs or a tree like some PDFs have?
dot.kde.org: On Tuesday, the Summer of Code BoF was held at aKademy 2007. I conducted an interview with Emanuele Tamponi about the session and his first experiences of aKademy.
Also: aKademy 2007: KDE e.V. Meeting
direct2dell: I wanted to be clear that Dell does have plans to offer Linux to more consumers in additional locations outside the United States. We will also offer Ubuntu to small business customers in the future.
linuxdevices: Nokia has released updated firmware for its Linux-based N800 Internet Tablet. The fourth Tablet OS 2007 release this year -- "4.2007.26-8" -- brings a Skype client, Flash 9 player, and support for 8GB SD memory cards, while Nokia's own VoIP service beta installer has been removed.
informationweek blog: You want proof there's a Linux distribution for absolutely every possible application? Here's one for you: Hikarunix, a distro dedicated to Go players and based on the ever-versatile Damn Small Linux (DSL).
LinuxWorld: Sun has released the final version of its Open Document Format (ODF) plug-in for Microsoft Office, designed to allow the ODF standard to better compete with Microsoft's dominant Office formats.
linux.com: Synfig Studio is a 2-D animation program that uses vector graphics. Although it has only just released version 0.61.06-1, it is already approaching early maturity, with enough tools and innovations that professionals might seriously consider using it.
kernelTRAP: "With all the tickless and other goodies going into the kernel in the last few months, there is a lot of hope that this helps Linux reduce power consumption," Arjan van de Ven began on the lkml, "and the good news is that it does... once you fix some bugs and fix a bunch of userspace applications."
