tectonic: Linux Mint 4.0, codenamed Daryana, was released on Friday. Based on the Ubuntu Gutsy packages, this distro appears to fulfil the the development team's stated goal to "produce an elegant, up to date and comfortable GNU/Linux desktop distribution".
zdnet: While the news that Microsoft is developing a version of Windows for the so-called "$100 laptop" has caused some consternation, the head of the One Laptop per Child project has said the scheme could not promote openness if it blocked Windows.
silentcoder: So I finally made my choice of new distros. I opted for gentoo. I actually tried archlinux first but it annoyed me insanely within ten minutes. Now I last used Gentoo a good 3 years ago, so a lot has changed, here then, a short review after my first 3 days, as we speak - I just loaded up my first functional KDE desktop.

polishlinux: Have you ever taken a picture which would be just great only if you could remove that strange unwanted object that showed up in the middle of nowhere and now kills the whole effect? Or perhaps you just want to get rid of your ex-girlfriend and keep the photo with a fantastic landscape alone? Whatever your secret plans are, GIMP Liquid rescale plugin is there for you. Just use it!
iTWire: What’s happening on your network? Tools exist to display raw data but you still need to put work in to uncover real information. Here’s where a network analyser comes in: it will separate the AIM chatter from the MSN; it will divide RPC from SMB. And the best open-source network analyser is Wireshark.
This is a list of hardware that does not have support on Linux and needs Linux kernel drivers written for them.
arstechnica: One fascinating session (and one that shows how FOSSCamp works and why it's so productive) was given by Mirco Müller, who discussed using OpenGL in GTK applications. Müller talked about the state of OpenGL support in desktop applications and described various techniques that developers can use to make OpenGL content integrate better with conventional GTK user interfaces.

Steve Carl: I had taken my Dell D620, configured with Mint 3.1. It was reliable and trouble free. What was left over from that trip was an issue from the previous post about OpenSUSE 10.3. It was troublesome enough on the D620 hardware that I ejected it at the last minute in favor of Mint 3.1. I had two days back in the office between trips, and spent one evening after everyone left setting up a new set of Linux test systems.
jon-reagan.blogspot: The Ubuntu server CD is great for virtualization: it's fast, and it also allows for personalization. I decided to use Ubuntu 7.04 as the host system, since VMware Server is included in the repositories.
mepis.org: For MEPIS 7.0, KDE has been updated to version 3.5.8 and the kernel has been updated to 2.6.22-10. The nvidia driver has been updated to 100.14.19.
lockergnome blogs: I began what I like to think of as my “Linux Adventure”, in February of 2006 on a short, much-frazzled shoestring. Recently, through the generosity of a friend, I was able to acquire several identical 600 MHz Celeron systems. What follows is my own, purely subjective, personal opinion of several distributions I’ve tried in the last two weeks.
mckooiker.byethost5: Last week I changed computer and since my “new” computer (Pentium4, 3.2GHz processor, 512Mb RAM) came with a bigger hard-disk I have more space to try new software and operating systems. The first distribution I installed was PCLinuxOS, and after one week of trying I will make a preliminary judgment today.

tech.blorge: I don't really know anyone who likes to referred to in a derogatory way but the N-word seems to evoke the most emotion of all the derogatory and defamatory words that one's imagination can conjure.
