openoffice.org tips: Here’s a summary of the features from the 2.3 new features list that I considered the most useful or important to write about.
Also: OxygenOffice Pro 2.3 = OpenOffice with Clipart & Templates
rudd-O: For the last six months, I’ve been reading article after article spewing the same bovine manure: Look at how many updates Distribution X issued! How can it be more secure than Windows? Let’s bury that stupidity under a ton of facts:
Greg Kroah-Hartman: It's been a few weeks since that announcement, and we now have over 300 different developers signed up to help create, and maintain Linux drivers! What we need now is more companies participating in the project, we have the developers, but not enough work to keep them busy.
- Caution and Latency
- Security People Are Insane
- Unloadable vs. Static
- Giving openSUSE a try
- OpenSuse is Back! This time it works!
- Ubuntu 7.10
- Ubuntu 7.10
- Mandriva Linux 2008
- PCLinuxOS 2007.
- Oracle Linux is no longer simply an RHEL clone
- Kanotix: In praise of small Linux distros
zdnet: It’s been a while since Microsoft signed up any more Linux distro vendors to participate as patent-protection partners. But on October 22, the Redmondians announced they’ve added TurboLinux to the fold.
Also: Microsoft drops EU fight, makes open-source concession
cybernet: I managed to find a lot of time over the weekend to play with the new Ubuntu 7.10 that was released on Thursday. It took a little bit of extra work to get the restricted drivers installed, and then to enable Compiz Fusion, but it was well worth it.
polishlinux: Listening to the music played back from original audio CDs on a home computer creates clear discomfort — the CD drive is being blocked and the CDs have to be changed again and again (unless you have a home jukebox). Now it’s time we learn to rip (grab) our own audio collection and save it to a hard disk in the form of .mp3, .ogg, or .flack files.
arsgeek: Avant Window Navigator, or AWN is a neat little dock that sits at the base of your monitor and looks exceedingly nice. It’s a great addition to your compiz-fusion install (in fact, you need compiz or something like it running for AWN to work).
liquidat: While I had some trouble testing the newest KDE 4 Beta release on my test machine, the KDE Four LiveCD works surprisingly well. According to Stephan the version used on this LiveCD is KDE 4 Beta 3 plus a set of recent patches.
iTWire: In business, as in many other things in life, it is relatively easy to plan for failure. I guess we all do it in some small way, one of the most common being the way people back up their digital personal files to guard against hardware failure or file corruption. But how does one plan for success?
Tryst with Linux: Due to limited harddisk place, and partly because of my desire to try something new, I erased my PCLinuxOS 2007 to try out the new Ubuntu 7.10 (and also Kubuntu). What I present now are some impressions of my use of both operating systems.
arstechnica: Nokia's recent announcement of the upcoming N810 Internet Tablet is very exciting news for mobile Linux enthusiasts. We have already covered the initial announcement, but this followup discusses some additional details about the N810 operating system and development platform that have been revealed by Nokia's Maemo team.
silentcoder.co.za: So why is it then, that ChaseyLane is running Gutsy. Actually the choice wasn’t made originally. I was going to load PCLOS on it, but PCLOS couldn’t see my SATA drives, this being because the relatively new SiS made SATA2 chipset is only supported in kernels post 2.6.22 - and PCLOS-2007 has 2.6.18. This forced me to use a newer distro as I cannot install a distro that cannot see my hard drives.
blogs.the451group.com: Two big open source stories from the UK: not only is retailing behemoth Tesco selling PCs bundled with the Ubuntu operating system but Becta, the government agency responsible for technology in the education system, has reported Microsoft to the Office of Fair Trading for alleged anti-competitive practices.
zdnet community blogs: I'm currently using seven computers. Of those seven, three run XP, one runs Ubuntu 6.06, two are now on Ubuntu 7.10, and one is Vista.

raiden's realm blogs: One of the things that bothers me profusely about OpenOffice is Sun’s maniacal infatuation with controlling every square inch of OpenOffice, including all the copyrights to the code within it.
