TechieMoe Rants: MEPIS was introduced to me originally by a fellow I met completely randomly in a book store. I liked it a lot back then, and subsequent versions have been solid, if not necessarily noteworthy.
Also: Minix 3.1.3
Mandriva Club: After having included the AIGLX, Xgl and Compiz 3D desktop technologies in Mandriva Linux 2007, Mandriva has added all the latest 3D desktop updates in Mandriva Linux 2007 Spring, like Metisse and Beryl.
Groklaw: This is news indeed. Todd Bishop has the story. Eben Moglen is saying that the SUSE vouchers Microsoft is distributing have no expiration date! I didn't know this. It's huge. This is, according to Moglen's remarks, another defense to any patent infringement claim by Microsoft, and it may well bring that campaign to a screeching halt.
DesktopLinux: Over in the DesktopLinux forums, people have been talking about why -- if Linux is so darned great -- don't people give up Windows and move to it.
linux-wizard.net: KDE 3.5.7 just land in Cooker. KDE 3.5.7 will feature bugfixes and improvements over the 3.5.6 release ( as shipped in 2007.1 Spring ).
Linux.com: Earlier this week, the GNU project announced a major release of the popular GNU Compiler Collection. GCC 4.2.0 introduces new features and several improvements for developers, but most of the distribution developers we spoke with aren't rushing to take advantage of the new release.
mozillalinks: The International Telecommunication Union, a United Nations agency for information and communication technology has awarded the Mozilla Corporation with the World Information Society Award "for its outstanding contribution to the development of world-class Internet technologies and applications."
Raiden's Realm: One of the greater benefits I've found while using KDE is the wide range of applications that come bundled with it. While some would call that bloat, I call it a benefit. But one of the disadvantages of having so many included applications is that sometimes some really good programs get lost in the shuffle or forgotten about. These are what I call the "Lesser Apps of KDE".
suserants: In recent versions of KDE, there is a new K Menu layout. This is called the “SUSE Menu Style”. The traditional K Menu style is called the “KDE Menu Style”. You can switch between them by right-clicking on the K Menu. There is an option to switch to switch in the small menu that appears.
Dana Blankenhorn: Consensus is the mysterious force driving open source. Consensus, in this sense, is a scientific concept. It’s not the same as unanimity, nor is it the same as democracy. It’s a common acceptance and practice which must prove its utility each day.
Jeremy’s Blog: We will be launching a Linux based OS (Ubuntu) on the E520, 1505 and XPS 410 starting next Thursday, 5/24. The goal of launching Linux is to continue to give our customers more choices to customize their new Dell.
pcadvisor blogs: The UK's biggest PC bargains could completely change your perception of the cost of hardware. But does the drive towards ever-cheaper computing come at a cost?
ubuntu geek: Problem - The workspace options dissapeared when right clicking on a window using the beryl manager.
silicon.com: Case Study: Since stockbroker Redmayne-Bentley revamped its IT infrastructure with a move to Linux the business has been reaping the rewards.
tectonic: Search Status is a great Firefox extension that provides a handful of additional information on any site you're visiting at the time.
ComputerWorld: "They want open-source software companies to like them and tell everyone what a good friend to open-source software Microsoft is," said Dave Rosenberg, CEO of MuleSource, an open-source middleware vendor. "But it's clear that the goal is not to embrace but to destroy."
Unix Review: Ivor Horton is a beginner's best friend (Beginning C++ 6, Beginning Ansi C++, Beginning Java 2). And his Beginning C text is definitely no stranger to this forum as I reviewed the 3rd Edition in October 2004. What's new with the 4th Edition, and do you need it?
itToolbox blogs: At one stage of our Linux adventure we have all come across this situation. Here you are happily exploring and tweaking your system when all of a sudden it doesn't start any more. There are many things that could have been done from changing screen resolutions to a script or runlevel gone bad.
eWeek: Q&A: Chris DiBona, a programs manager for Google, talks about how the company uses open-source software and what it contributes to the open-source community.
mobileburn.com: It has been a very long time in coming, but Motorola is finally starting to put out devices based on its new Linux platform. The Motorola ROKR Z6 is among the initial handset designs that Motorola has built on this new platform.
