temporaryland.wordpress: A few weeks ago I wrote about my experiences installing several different distributions on my ThinkPad T61. One of the distributions I tested was PCLinuxOS 2007 and there were a couple of small issues. With the recent release of the 2008 version I thought it would be good to write about how this new version works on my laptop. However, that could be summarized in just one phrase:
c|net blog: In August, Lenovo announced that Suse Linux Enterprise Desktop 10 would be available on ThinkPads in the fourth quarter of 2007. Though that didn't happen, Lenovo finally released details Tuesday.
wired blogs: A police officer testified in the Hans Reiser murder trial here Tuesday that foliage discovered on the tires of his missing wife's van wife was "consistent" with a leaf found inside a vehicle used by the defendant.
linux.com: We reviewed the RAW photo editor LightZone almost a year ago, when the Linux version of the product was a closed source -- but free -- download. After months of updates only for the Mac OS X and Windows versions of the application, Light Crafts has released a new beta for Linux. It is a substantial improvement -- but it also marks the end of the road for the free edition.
tombuntu.com: This is a list of ten tips that may help you out in getting started with KDE 4.0. All of these I discovered since installing KDE 4.0 in Ubuntu.
freesoftwaremagazine.com: Free software (eventually) works better than proprietary software; why? It depends on which angle you take, which area, and what your comparison terms are. However, I would like to add an important keyword to that sentence: “Free software works better than proprietary software”.
beranger.org: Now that GoblinX 2.6 RC1 is out and that Caraibes suggested that I should try it, well... I tried it. And this reminded me why I decided to drop it after having tried GoblinX 2.5 RC1 "Mini" sometime in October.
linuxfud.wordpress: The following is my Top 10 list of themes used by anti-Linux FUD campaigns. This list is based on observations made over my years of following the Linux market.
linuxsecurity.com: The goal of this document is to kick in the new year with some best practices for SSH: why you should use them, how to set them up, and how to verify that they are in place.
geekzone.co.nz: I think this is a temporary offer only, and I don't have many more details than what is in the product page, but it looks like Acer is making a limited laptop series available now with Ubuntu Linux pre-loaded.
junauza.blogspot: File sharing typically follows the P2P model, where the files are stored on and served by personal computers of the users. Generally, people who engage in file sharing on the Internet both give (upload) files and receive files (download). There are plenty of excellent free/open-source P2P file sharing software available today. Here’s my list:
earthweb.com: How do you produce a major update of a popular desktop for GNU/Linux? Following the release of KDE 4.0 last week, I talked with Wade Olson, the press contact for KDE in North America, and a member of KDE e.V., the German non-profit organization that is the financial and legal arm of the project.
Also: KDE 4.0.0 release rocks the Linux world
opensource.org: I just read an excellent summary of the top 10 SE Linux stories of 2007, and it reminds me that I owe the world a blog posting about the amazing vision and accomplishments of the SE Linux project.
kernelTRAP: Michael Meeuwisse started Project VGA in September of 2007. The project aims to develop a simple, low budget, open source, VGA compatible video card available this year. In this interview, Michael explains his inspiration for the project and talks about the first development cards that will be functional by the end of the month.
computerworld.com.au: Lead artist from Elephants Dream speaks about what it is like to make your own open movie using open source tools and the power of the community.
ruminations: I am enjoying these days with the control center, but it’s time to wrap it up and move on. There are plenty of other things that need attention.
Glyn Moody: We have found our hedgehog concept. It is enterprise Linux and enterprise management as the two key areas required to bring together the open source world and the world of proprietary software.
This morning Christina Fullam states that it was decided just before Christmas to cancel the 2007.1 release and roll all the effort into Gentoo 2008.0 since there was little possibility of getting a well-tested 2007.1 release out before 2008. In other posts the status of Gentoo Foundation and the weekly newsletter were discussed.
