In this time, we have seen some great progress made with this open-source driver and have a few additional remarks to share about its status and the first bits of this driver's roadmap.
carsonspost.wordpress: A year ago I had the frightening Windows realization that between Anti-Virus, Firewall and Defender (what does it do?) software, my PC was still not secure. I had a couple of days of stress as I tried to unload some ugly spyware. I found this really upsetting, unbelievably frustrating and that was the point where I no longer trusted Windows.
linux.com: Confucius say, "Lao-tzu has passed us the Tao. In his mouth, there are no teeth but only a tongue. The hard ones (teeth) died, but the soft one (the tongue) lives; the soft power is stronger than the hard power. That's the Tao!" Open source is such a soft power.
kernelTRAP: "It doesn't seem to pull any dependency nor affect any other external piece of code unless I'm missing something, so it's a perfect example of what we've been discussing back then: there is just no point not merging it at any time right ? :-)"

All About Linux: One month back I had written about a content aware image rescaling technology. And I hoped that this technology will be incorporated in Gimp in the future. Well we didn't have to wait that long.
SearchEnterpriseLinux blog: The script “survf” monitors a file so you can check whether this file is growing (e.g. during ftp transfer). If you link it to the name “survp,” it monitors a running process… when the process terminates it sounds a bell and terminates.
the crumb: Tonight I updated my Ubuntu install to the latest Gutsy beta (7.10). So far so good. This is the first upgrade I’ve done where it correctly set my widescreen monitor resolution.

Jucato’s blog: I have a somewhat indifferent attitude towards Kopete. I use it just because it happens to be the only viable one among its peers, but it most probably wouldn’t be my messaging client of choice if I were to find a better KDE alternative. But a few days ago, someone gave me a reason to love Kopete a bit more. Introducing Onion 75!
