tuxtoday: I recently built myself a new computer. So for my new computer I first installed Ubuntu, then Kubuntu, and now.. OpenSUSE 10.2.
beranger: The Final draft for openSUSE Guiding Principles is very nice and a pleasant reading, but as it should serve as sort of a Constitution (or at least as a defining writ), it has a weird way of putting the cart before the horses.
InfoWorld: "I don't use the word 'evil,'" says Mike Evans – though he acknowledges that some of his customers do see proprietary commercial software vendors that way.
vnunet: Bringing Ubuntu-based consumer PCs to Europe, Dell plans to start selling a Linux desktop and notebook computer in the UK, France and Germany this Wednesday.
Adrian Kingsley-Hughes: I began My Linux Experience back at the end of February and over the past five months I’ve managed to spend a fair bit of time dabbling and experimenting with a variety of Linux distros. Over these months I’ve learned a lot - a lot about Linux, a lot about the Linux community and a lot about myself and how I look at and interact with PCs.
ubuntu tutorials: Some of you may have seen the post floating around a few of the planets the last couple of days concerning the Ubuntu Technical Board’s review of Automatix. It is for this reason that starting today I will take the complete list of applications installable by Automatix and write a tutorial for each one. So, I’ve started with the first section, “Burning and Ripping."
linux.com: Absolute, a lightweight Linux operating system based on the respected Slackware Linux distribution, just released version 12.0. It features kernel version 220.127.116.11, IceWM and Fluxbox window managers, and many graphical and ncurses-based configuration tools. Its goal is to provide a lighter, easier-to-use Slackware appropriate for newcomers and experienced Linux users alike. It is built for speed and performance but doesn't neglect stability or security.
This article shows how you can use an iPod on a Linux desktop with gtkpod (a graphical user interface for Apple's iPod). Normally, Apple's iTunes software is needed to manage an iPod, but iTunes is not available for Linux. Fortunately, there are Linux alternatives such as gtkpod that can handle the task.
zdnet: Novell has boosted its legal team with one of America's top patent lawyers in what is building up to be a legal battle with Microsoft.
Bits (nytimes blogs): Virgin America calls their new in-flight entertainment system “Red,” but it is really a gigantic sociological experiment in airborne distributed computing.
pcworld blogs: The Eee PC laptop is a little marvel. While it will be delightful to use this laptop with wifi at a public library or other hotspot, the truly exciting feature on this laptop is the 56kbps modem. A dialup modem exciting? Sure. Check this out.
kernelTRAP: Matthew Dillon created DragonFly BSD in June of 2003 as a fork of the FreeBSD 4.8 codebase. In this interview, Matthew discusses his incentive for starting a new BSD project and briefly compares DragonFly to FreeBSD and the other BSD projects. He goes on to discuss the new features in today's DragonFly 1.10 release.
arstechnica: Firefox is seeing tremendous adoption rates in some parts of the world. In order to perpetuate this growth trend, Mozilla has to continue to find new ways to bring Firefox to a broader audience. Mozilla is tackling this problem from many different angles, but user retention has emerged as a significant priority for the organization's Firefox promotion efforts.
Virtually Vista: This isn't exactly on topic for this blog, since up to this point I've really only talked about getting Windows Vista running in a VM, but sometimes it's nice to talk about something else for a change.
Groklaw: "Linux plays a vital role at Google, and we're strongly committed to supporting the Linux developer community,” said Chris DiBona, Google open source programs manager. “We believe that by becoming an Open Invention Network licensee, we can encourage Linux development and foster innovation in a way that benefits everyone. We're proud to participate in OIN's mission to help Linux thrive.”
eWeek: Lindows/Linspire, the controversial Linux company, and its even more controversial founder Michael Roberston have been making waves in technology since their arrival.
Wolvix is a Linux distribution released as an installable liveCD. Originally based on Slax, it is now built upon Slackware and seems to concentrate highly on multimedia. It features XFCE4 and Fluxbox and comes with a large suite of software. Version 1.1.0 was released a few days ago and I decided to give it a little spin this weekend.
