phoronix: The Mandriva team is busy cooking up a new spring release with the first development release being codenamed Ophrys. The first beta release for Mandriva Linux 2008 Spring is now available, and it features Perl 5.10 integration, the latest GNOME and KDE packages, and the Linux 2.6.24-rc8 kernel.

kernelTRAP: Ingo Molnar posted a merge request for the latest git scheduler tree summarizing, "it contains various enhancements to the scheduler - find the full shortlog is below. 96 commits from 19 authors - scheduler developers have been busy again."
junauza.blogspot: A first-person shooter (Commonly called FPS) is an action video game that involves "an avatar, one or more ranged weapons, and a varying number of enemies". I have collected some quality free/open-source first-person shooter games.
bytebot.net: I bit the bullet, and picked up an Asus Eee PC today, while I failed at an attempt to get a rack. Its a 4GB model, with the webcam, and its on its 3rd run, i.e. I’ve got a model without a mini-PCIe connector.
softpedia.com: Starting from last night, Photoshop CS2 can now be installed easily by using Wine... on any Linux distribution! "Photoshop CS/CS2 should now work, please help us testing it" - said the wonderful people behind the Wine project.
distrogue.blogspot: Arch Linux is one of the few distributions to be optimized for an i686 processor- in other words, it's really fast without having to compile anything. It uses a custom package manager called Pacman.
zerias.blogspot: Fact is, while Vista has been a disaster for Microsoft, Xp has not. Xp has easily maintained a sales ratio of 3 to 1 or greater during the time since Vista's launch. Consider then that Xp prices were not slashed. They were not dropped. If you want Xp, you pay the same exact price today that you would have before Vista launched.
fosswire.com: Since Writely, being able to edit documents with others has gone from some fancy new technology to being the standard in most web applications. It was “the thing” to work on a document with three others at the same time, and still is. But the trend seems to stick with web editors. Gobby answers the call for a desktop editor.
dmartin.org: I was in the market for a laptop, and if I am anything, it's a frugal gadget geek. Buy.com had a deal on refurbished HP DV9627CL laptops for $700. Unfortunately, it came with the Microsoft tax that I didn't want.
blue-gnu.biz: Having thrown around a few initial impressions about the OLPC XOs, I thought I would take a more in-depth look at the user interface and some of the activities kids can engage in. And I have a couple of comments about their durability and adjustable screens.
linux.com: ECMA, the international IT standards association, recently published its responses to comments of the ISO National Bodies in response to Microsoft's Office Open XML application for ISO standardization (the actual 2,293-page response is closed to the public). The ECMA proposals will be discussed at a Ballot Resolution Meeting (BRM) in Geneva after which the National Bodies may reconsider their original vote.
Look beyond tools like SpamAssassin and Amavis to see how you can extend them and provide additional filtering facilities to lower the amount of spam hitting the e-mail boxes of your users. Most companies use spam and virus filtering services on their UNIX platforms, but there are some methods that you can use that help improve your filtering scores and might even eliminate spam reaching inboxes.

Linux Today: Macs come close to a toaster model, with Linux right there, given the security and automated update features available. Windows? Right, that's our laugh for this week's column. But "close" is still a long ways away. Even the pre-loaded Linux machines being sold out on the market now fall short of a "plug-in-and-forget" operating scenario. This week, however, I begin to wonder if such a goal is worthy after all.
penguinpetes.com: While the bloggers in my neighborhood seem to be trying to catalog the FOSS users as if we were a species of butterfly or something, I thought I'd contribute to the noise. Only my offering will be a taxonomy of those writers whose mighty corporate paychecks make them columnists while their desire to roll around on the floor with the kids and be cool makes them "bloggers".
gentoo.org: Release Engineering team members are in the planning stages for 2008.0, and they want your help! Is there anything you'd like to see added, changed or removed from Gentoo's release media?
computerworld: Is Linux on the enterprise desktop finally ready for prime time? IBM apparently thinks so as it prepares to deliver its next versions of Lotus Notes enterprise collaboration software and Lotus Symphony office productivity applications for the first time with full support for Ubuntu Linux 7.10 sometime in the second half of this year.
fosswire.com: The clipboard is one thing that we often take forgranted. The concept of copy and paste is almost burnt into our minds, and we use it to move text and objects from application to application. Often, however, the restriction of having only one object on the clipboard at any one time can be limiting. Enter Parcellite.
Initially I was quite excited by the release of Elisa 0.3.3 from the team at Fluendo. In general, I like the work Fluendo does - amongst other initiatives they have codecs for sale that alleviate any legal qualms you may have about installing "non-free" video codecs from various locations, they have an interesting Java streaming video applet called Cortado and they provide a reasonably priced online streaming service. So, high hopes for Elisa 0.3.3.
