ubuntu geek: This article explains how to set up Tor in Feisty based on my own experience (with Gnome interface). Tor is a program that allows one to surf through a local proxy with a routed IP address (so the webpage you surf does not have a record of your own IP address).
iTWire: Linux is an enterprise-grade operating system and is capable of the utmost security. However, many installations fall short because the out-of-the-box setup routines have to cater for the lowest common denominator.
the distrogue: By now, everyone's heard that the next release of the Linux kernel, 2.6.23, will feature the CFS (Completely Fair Scheduler), which will, in theory, make everything run faster.
matt asay: I won't go into the economics, but suffice it to say that I think there's little hope of Mozilla making Firefox (or any of its other software) into true public goods of any note. The best it can hope for, here on Planet Earth, is for software in the public interest.
nixcraft: netcat utility (nc command) considered as TCP/IP swiss army knife. It reads and writes data across network connections, using TCP or UDP protocol. It is designed to be a reliable “back-end” tool that can be used directly or easily driven by other programs and scripts.
tipsosaurus: For those of you using a Linux OS, you might have wanted to start a particular program or application at start up - when you login.
csclub: Copyright developed in the age of the printing press, and was designed to fit with the system of centralized copying imposed by the printing press. But the copyright system does not fit well with computer networks, and only draconian punishments can enforce it.
blog anything: People like to modify their OS for self satisfaction. Here are the ways Ubuntu fans can get the Ubuntu mood in their Windows XP based desktop.
about.com: Most Linux distributions provide a set of command line tools you can use for polishing up your writing, tools that can be used with simple light-weight text editors, such as pico or nano.
Lighttpd is a secure, fast, standards-compliant web server designed for speed-critical environments. This tutorial shows how you can install Lighttpd on a Debian Etch server with PHP5 support (through FastCGI) and MySQL support.
DPotD: Have you ever wished to know where are those files that waste space on your hard drive? Have you ever wondered which folder contained the most gigabytes? Your wishes had become true! xdiskusage is your application.

olpcnews.com: No matter how you feel about Teemu Leinonen's suggestion that One Laptop Per Child should use Participatory Design in developing a XO-2, it looks like Intel Corporation is already pre-participating in the next generation of OLPC products.
Daniel Robbins: Over the last few days, I've taken a good hard look at performance issues related to Sabayon and Gentoo. Several people have noted that Sabayon seems slow, so I tested out 3.4e.
linux electrons: Glipper 1.0 released. Glipper is a clipboardmanager for the GNOME Panel. It maintains a history of text copied to the clipboard from which you can choose.
mobilemag: Remember how confusing it was when ACCESS acquired PalmSource, makers of the PalmOS? Remember how we told you they were working on a new Linux-based platform for cell phones that would remove its name away from the Palm brand? Well, that day has finally come.
what-is-what.com: GIMP is an open source graphics editor. Often referred to as "The Gimp", the program's name is properly written in all capital letters, with no preceding "the", to emphasize the acronym GNU Image Manipulation Program.
tuxtoday: Although Yast is a good tool, I experience it’s package management to be a bit slow for everyday “Oh my god I have to try out lots of new stuff!”-kinds of situations.
