the register: How appropriate that we caught Chairman Tim O'Reilly ogling Portland's tram schedule just a few minutes before the Pirate Party's founder Rickard Falkvinge took the stage at O'Reilly's own conference. Chairman Tim plotted his escape from OSCON, as Falkvinge prepared to talk to the people about things that matter.
mitchell's blog: One large them of responses to the Thunderbird post is the question: Why can't Thunderbird and Firefox both prosper in the same development organization? Since there is money, what's the problem?
kerneltrap: Yasunori Goto posted some documentation for memory hotplugging which can be used to increase or decrease the amount of memory available to a live kernel. The documentation explains that this functionality is useful for virtualization and capacity on demand solutions, as well as for physically adding and removing RAM from NUMA-nodes.
phoronix: What does Solaris look like? It's actually a question we've been asked quite a bit since beginning to cover Solaris at Phoronix earlier this year. When using the GNOME desktop, it doesn't look much different from Linux.
Groklaw: On June 30, 2007, my wife and I decided to upgrade my life by replacing my home-made‚ Pentium III computer with a Dell Inspiron 530N with Ubuntu Linux. This would be the first time in almost 10 years that I had purchased a name brand computer. The machine was shipped on July 18, 2007.
5thwind: Back in January, I decided to download a live CD of Ubuntu Linux to try out. I was surprised to find that everything worked…just like that. The more I fooled around with it, the more it intrigued me.
polishlinux: The program MOC was reviewed in recent article called MOC — Console Audio Player for Linux. It was written by Roman Tworkowski. Even though we live in the times of cute graphical interfaces e.g. Compiz, KDE, etc. I consider the MOC player to be a better solution for some users (including myself) than the very popular applications Xmms or Amarok, and the other visually appealing players. Why do I think so?
economist.com: This week sees the realisation of Mr Negroponte’s five-year dream. After field testing in Nigeria and Brazil, the OLPC project’s first model, a rugged little green laptop called the XO that can run on batteries, solar power, a miniature windmill or hand- or foot-crank, goes into mass production. Schoolchildren in developing countries will start receiving the remarkable computer from October onwards.
phoronix: If you have been reading our ATI/AMD Linux display driver reviews for some time, you will know that there are periods where it doesn't look like the fglrx driver is actively being worked on, but in fact changes are being made "under the hood". We have decided to dissect the last 19 months of driver releases from ATI/AMD to expose some interesting facts and what should be coming in the future.
All about Linux: As you know, the Fedora team has released the latest offering of Fedora which is Fedora 7. It has been released as a liveCD as well as in the DVD format. These are the steps you go through while installing Fedora 7 using the liveCD installer.
Linux Evangelist: It’s annoying to read so much about partitioning under GNU/Linux being hard. Though I have installed various distributions (and still installing) for about 50 times in a year (without exaggeration) for myself, my friends and known people; this claim about “Partitioning under GNU/Linux is hard” is really baseless.
kernelTRAP: "People who think SD was 'perfect' were simply ignoring reality," Linus Torvalds began in a succicnt explanation as to why he chose the CFS scheduler written by Ingo Molnar instead of the SD scheduler written by Con Kolivas.
Daniel Robbins: There is a large interest among the Gentoo and larger Linux user community for me to come back as Chief Architect. However, there's lots of reasons why trying to jump back into the Chief Architect role this isn't the right thing to do. The solution, I think, is to look for positive ways to improve the Gentoo community.

For the next interview in the People Behind KDE series, we travel to the Netherlands to meet a KDE promoter and meeting organiser, someone who helps the international community to experience KDE events, even if they were not in attendance - tonight's star of People Behind KDE is Jos Poortvliet.
FreeSoftware Mag: Anybody who has used the command line extensively to navigate, understand and configure GNU/Linux will know that in the course of a few months’ work it is possible to build up an extensive history of used commands. This necessitates some pro-active management to get the best out of it. Here are some tips to make the most of the history command.
Serdar Yegulalp: Consider 64 Studio, which packs a whole slew of free and open source multimedia (music and video) content-creation applications such as Ardour, Hydrogen, and JAMin into a 64-bit Debian-derived Linux distribution.
Linux on the desktop: It’s official I had to pull the plug on Linux on the desktop Podcast. I had many interesting things in the works and I had quite a large audience for a computer podcast.

/dev/bram: The Kopete History plugin stores its data in some custom XML format. Not really pleasant to read some conversation afterwards or to look up a piece of information from it. Of course you can load Kopete and view the history, but wouldn't it be nicer to view it in a more pleasant format like plain text or HTML?
arstechnica: The much-anticipated page zoom feature has finally landed in Firefox 3 nightly builds. Firefox 3 will now be able to zoom the entire page, including images as well as text, just like Opera and IE 7.
