ooomarketing.blogspot: Some days ago I met some old friends at an anniversary. At some point, when asked what methods I would try I said: "I used OpenOffice.org to learn foreign languages!". Of course they asked: how? does it have a language learning module ?
LinuxWorld: Mozilla is working to fix a browser flaw that could give attackers unauthorized access to data on a victim's machine.

vuntz.net: FOSDEM is coming soon: it's on February 23-24. And of course, GNOME will be there. Last year, the GNOME presence at FOSDEM was really successful. Still, things were not perfect: there were not enough t-shirts and we had no stand, for example. Can we do better than last year?
raiden's realm: DesktopBSD, a derivative of Freebsd designed for desktop use, has come a long way since its early inception back in late 2005. Originally created as a way to bring the power of Freebsd as a desktop OS to new users, it has now blossomed into a desktop experience even the most hardened geek, or greenest novice can love.
Serdar Yegulalp: Whether you want to customize Knoppix, respin an existing distribution of the open-source operating system, like Puppy Linux, or are intent on creating your own package from scratch, we'll walk you through the process.
lateral.netmanagers.com.ar: I finally got my eee PC last saturday. It's the 4G Surf in Galaxy Black. Everyone says the same thing, and so do I: you can't understand how small the thing is until you see it. And then everyone takes a picture of it sitting inside its previous notebook. So will I, 2 times.
Using FFMpeg it is relatively simple to query an existing video file to find details such as video codec, audio codec, bitrates, duration and dimensions.
pcmech.com: Last night I downloaded and tried out Linux Mint 4.0 (Daryna). Before continuing I’m going to say up front I purposely avoided using Mint because I was under the impression it was just an "Ubuntu with some nice stuff added to it". And there’s a few distros out there like that. Not so.
linux.com: Hard-working KDE Input/Output (KIO) slaves perform much of KDE's functionality. KIO slaves provide consistent access to different resources, such as filesystems, network protocols, and search functions, making them accessible to all KDE applications in a standard way.
zdnetasia.com: A smaller proportion of Linux users in Asia sign up for enterprise support services, but that is "okay" by Novell global strategic partners' chief technologist Marcin Kurc.
itwire.com: The old adage, you get what you pay for, doesn’t have to apply. In fact, for a small business the high price tag of “threat management” software can often mean a company will just go without to its detriment. Here’s some high quality free and open source software to help, at a price any CFO will love.

Frederik's Blog: Some time ago, Mandriva decided to install the PulseAudio sound server by default in its distribution. Personally I did not really like the decision to activate PulseAudio by default in all desktop environments. Nevertheless, I let PulseAudio be activated on my system too, in order to help as much as possible with bug hunting.
tech.blorge.com: Microsoft just announced it will contribute millions of dollars earmarked for training students and teachers worldwide to use its software. That means less exposure to Linux for our children and continued dependence on the Windows XP and Vista monopoly.
phoronix: Last week OpenSuSE 11.0 Alpha 1 was released, and in addition to including KDE 4.0, PulseAudio integration, and various package updates, Alpha 1 features improvements to the OpenSuSE installer. This installer uses Qt4 and is much improved, which warranted us taking a closer look.
knolinux: In the middle of comments from my last review of gOS, I had one person recommend I check out a new distro called Geubuntu. Well, as I was in the middle of playing with this Enlightenment package, named from its parent distro of Ubuntu, I saw a release stating that the name now was OpenGEU. This name change seemed appropriate in that I sincerely doubt anything from canonical would be as interesting as this package.
blogs.ittoolbox: The Linux community and indeed the Open Source community in general is comprised of many different types of people. This is my attempt at categorizing the face of Linux into four general areas. The Slasher, Basher, Butcher and Pusher.
iTWire: A new report reveals that in 2007 organised criminal gangs for the first time started attacking Internet connected Apple products with the intention of stealing money. The report issues a chilling warning that the increased popularity of Mac computers and the enthusiastic take-up of net connected products such as iPhone and iPod Touch has its down side.
wired: Jurors in the Hans Reiser murder trial for the first time in the three-month trial were shown actual forensic evidence -- a sleeping bag cover that was stained with blood from the missing wife whom the Linux programmer is accused of killing.
kernelTRAP: "With this patch series, it is expected that [the] ext4 format should be settling down. We still have delayed allocation and online defrag which aren't quite ready to merge, but those shouldn't affect the on-disk format.
