linuxbraindump.org: I wrote this document for new Ubuntu Linux users who are trying it for the first time solo, that is, without a friend or colleague who is experienced with setting up and supporting Ubuntu Linux.
Canllaith.org: I had some pretty stringent requirements for this machine. It needed to be able to be docked and undocked many times a day from a docking station with very little fuss, preferably being able to switch between dual monitor and single without needing to restart Xorg.
eriksherman.com: The book Ubuntu for Non-Geeks (2nd. edition) claims to be "a hands-on, project-based, take-it-slow guidebook for those interested in - but nervous about - switching to the Linux operating system."
simplehelp.net: Recently I upgraded my mum from Windows XP to Ubuntu. This page will serve as a central location for all of the beginner-to-intermediate Ubuntu “how-to” tutorials that I create.
According to Absolute website "Assembled to make installation and maintenance of Slackware easier. Built for speed, stability, security, ease of use and development (if you are so inclined.) I am as confident in it's stability as a stock Slackware box -- and that is saying something"
linux.com: Zim looks, feels, and almost works like a common text editor, but it mixes editing features like spell checking with the page cataloging features of wikis.
groklaw: With the loopy bravado of Monty Python's Black Knight, they list all the things they didn't lose. And they are exploring their options. Here they are, at last, with a statement.
paul murphy: Two weeks ago frequent contributors p_msac and bportlock challenged me to see Linux as not Unix and to discuss the consequences of that difference. The reality here is simple.
tuxenclave.wordpress.com: Exaile is a music player aiming to be similar to KDE’s Amarok, but for GTK+ and written in Python. It incorporates many of the cool things from Amarok (and other media players).
computerworld: Last week’s LinuxWorld Conference & Expo drew a broad cross section of users, from cautious onlookers trying to gauge how Linux and other open-source software could fit into their organizations to converts hoping to expand their use of such technologies.
arstechnica: The latest Firefox 3 nightly build includes a revised interface for the download manager, which features search functionality and grouping for active and completed downloads.
raycosm.wordpress.com: I’m using an old Dell Inspiron E1505/6400, although it only says E1505 on the actual computer. It’s from around March 2006. I recently installed Kubuntu via Wubi.
thedarkmaster: Are you an artist, graphic designer or something like that? Well, then you maybe know, if you use Linux, that there’s no really professional program in this category of software… sadly. Sure, there’s the Gimp but can it be compared with photoshop?
The Linux Movement: There is this new dock, like application which seems nice if you have loads of launchers. It seems that you just use your mouse scroll wheel and you just wheel the launchers around....looks like fun.
Linux Today: I've been waiting for months for the release of Freespire 2.0. Over the past two years I've downloaded and tried many distros but had been saving the "best for last." I'd heard so much about Freespire and Linspire; especially the new CNR program installer/remover.
tuxtoday: Basically, it’s a game about blowing stuff up until you get to the boss, and then blow that one up too. You collect powerups in the form of skulls and tux-logos, which will get you new weapons and supershields.
sys-con.com: There's been a change in legal style and personnel over at the Linux Foundation.
opensuse news: Stephan Kulow has created and uploaded Live CDs of the 1-CD installations for your pleasure: GNOME Live ISO, KDE Live ISO. He writes: “Please put ‘live CD’ into the summary of bug reports, so we don’t confuse them with the installation CDs. The Live CDs are still very early in development, but we would like to hear your feedback in general.“
