merlinsminute.com: Realizing that this in no way will cause masses to defect to Linux, my intentions here again are to show that there is a definite advantage in running Linux over Windows especially these days.
beyondart.wordpress: That is Mint’s slogan and in my opinion it suits them well. Mint was my very first experience with Linux. I installed it from a DVD found in Linux Format Magazine. I was so enthralled with Linux that I started searching for other distros - maybe something even better.
USAtoday: A small software developer today plans to unveil a suite of applications — browser, camera, games and more — based on the new Google-endorsed operating system, Android.

perkypants.org: With my GNOME Foundation hat on I thought that, rather than taking the easy way out by plugging a bunch of our rocking applications, it might be cool to show off some of the projects that make GNOME rock:
eikke.com: I’ve been able to download the KDE4 LiveCD by now, so I wanted to give it a test ride and write a basic KDE 4 review. These are my findings.

phorolinux.com: Ubuntu 8.04 (codename Hardy Heron) Alpha 3 has been released. This release includes Linux kernel 2.6.24, Xorg 7.3, PulseAudio, PolicyKit, Firefox 3 Beta 2 and so on.
technascent.com: Linux, just the mention of that word can spark an endless debate between Microsoft Fanboys and Linux Junkies. This debate or as it has more appropriately been called, war of words, has been going on ever since the inception of Windows, and will most likely continue until one completely abolishes the use of the other.
DPotD: The psmisc package is probably installed on almost all Debian and Ubuntu installations and contains a number of small tools related to process management on Unix systems. Namely, these are pstree, killall, fuser and peekfd.
freewargamesrules.blogspot: Well I finally made the decision at home to switch from Windows XP on my main machine. The decision was whether to do a complete re-install or look at the alternatives. Vista refuses to install on my machine, unfortunately, even though I received a free upgrade disk when I purchased the machine 12 months ago.
fromtheold.com: Since dumping Windows I have learned a lot about Linux. Ubuntu to be specific. You should really try it if you are still using Windows. There must be 100’s of apps I might be missing here which is great. i just wanted to point out these that I really like and did not have in windows as standard or as updates.
adventuresinopensource.blogspot: Another fresh distro for me this time in the shape of the Canadian offering Vector Linux. It's another lightweight Slackware based distro and often gets compared to Zenwalk and Wolvix. With Zenwalk fresh in my mind and Wolvix fresh on my hit list I spent a few days with Vector. Here's how I got on...
kmandla.wordpress: If I understand the Mozilla help pages correctly, Firefox ignores your GTK settings for font size, preferring instead to calculate the appropriate sizes against the dimensions given in your xorg.conf file.
mikefolan.com: The Linux project is a flagship leading the current trend toward open source and free (as in freedom, not free beer) software within the computing industry. A rock-solid operating system because of the model under which it was (and continues to be) developed, Linux represents much that is good and pure in software development.
Jonathan Riddell: KDE's licence policy was created some years ago and has worked well in specifying what is for the most part pretty obvious, all KDE code should be free. With the new GNU GPL it was time to update the policy to ensure all code can link to GPL 3.
Groklaw: There has been quite a bit of press about the Everex TC2502 Green PC. So, I was at Wal-mart the other night and noticed they had two gPC's on the shelf, and decided it was time for me to buy one of them to evaluate.

kdubois.net: Most linux users know about the root directory, but many of the folders contained in / are a mystery as to their purpose. I hope this article will better prepare you better for managing your linux system, no matter what you use it for.
fedora-announce (LWN): Outgoing Fedora leader Max Spevack has sent a goodbye letter of sorts from FUDCon and announced that the new project leader will be Paul Frields.
