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.
Phoronix: We have finished our largest (and most time consuming) Linux performance comparison to date. We have taken the last 12 major kernel releases, from Linux 2.6.12 to Linux 2.6.23, built them from source and set out on a benchmarking escapade. This testing also includes the Linux 2.6.24-rc1 kernel. From these benchmarks you can see how the Linux kernel performance has matured over the past two and a half years.
kmandla.wordpress: Ubuntu is three years old this month, and some of its earliest users are still part of the community. Artificial Intelligence — forum member No. 19, as he points out — began as a beta tester for the first release, but is probably best known for his aesthetic tastes … tastes that manifest themselves as amazing, beautiful and artistic desktops.
omnigia.com: I recently received a Nokia 6300 as a birthday present. The most convenient (and cheapest) way to network the phone and laptop is via Bluetooth. Not knowing a thing about Bluetooth, I set out on a quest to learn more about this protocol — more specifically, how to use it in Ubuntu.
kernelTRAP: Andrew Morton responded favorably to Evgeniy Polyakov's most recent release of his distributed storage subsystem, "I went back and re-read last month's discussion and I'm not seeing any reason why we shouldn't start thinking about merging this."

movingparts.net: The T61 is a heck of a nice little machine. Fast, smooth, quiet, and the works. However, there are a few things that have proven to be not so nice: most notably that which is absolutely necessary in a laptop: suspend and resume.
grumpy bunny: One of the basic problems facing Linux conversions these days is the person who says something to the effect of "I've used Windows Xp for the past 4 years and I've never had any problem with it."
varna.wordpress: It is precisely when I have a lot of work to do, that I find other things to do. Last week was one of those times. I’ve always wanted to use a Linux distro without getting rid of a prior working version of Windows XP. I have now succeeded.
DPotD: Cowsay is a useless but very fun text filter written in Perl. If you send some text into cowsay, you get an ASCII cow saying your text.
mikehmayer.com: Ubuntu Linux is one of the best open source solutions that the world has ever seen. It is a free and powerful operating system that includes, by default, most of the tools that people need on a daily basis to get work done on a computer. What tools it lacks have free and open source alternatives that, in many of cases, can do equivalent or better work.
thelinuxmovement.blogspot: Another cool dock, cairo-dock. I used it when it first came out and it has made a ton of progress. So here is a little video to show it off.
fanaticattack.com: It appears that the Gnome Foundation is participating in ECMA TC 451 regarding resolving comments and contradictions for DIS 29500. Given the technical shortcomings in the specification and the disregard for process that the backers of DIS 29500 have displayed during the process, Gnome’s participation in this activity is to the detriment of interoperability among office suits.
kmandla.wordpress.com: I’m prejudiced. I admit it in the first sentence. Ubuntu was the origin of my Linux history, and I’m still partial to it. I approach Fluxbuntu with a mix of hope and over-familiarity, and that might shine through because I really, really like it.
Serdar Yegulalp: Since this blog does get filed under the category Open Source, I thought I'd take time out here and there to talk about some of my favorite open-source applications, not just Linux (or OSes in general). I'll start with an app that has breathed unexpected new life into some of my DVDs: MPlayer.
