techzone: Looks like PCLinuxOS is destined to reach its well deserved place in the Desktop Linux world. More and more of my friends, both in India and abroad, are switching to PCLOS. Its like a unanimous verdict. It is truly a system that just works and works fine. It's fast, it's decently stable and has all the Desktop oriented configurations by default.
the inquirer: THE "TECH" PEOPLE at PC World seem to think that Linux is responsible for creating manufacturing faults.
Linux Tip: Xara Xtreme for Linux is a powerful, general purpose graphics program for Unix platforms including Linux, FreeBSD and (in development) OS-X. Xara Xtreme is based on Xara Xtreme for Windows.

arstechnica: Dell has released a custom "remastered" Ubuntu 7.04 installation CD ISO that can be used to install Ubuntu on an Inspiron 1420 or 530. The ISO automatically installs all of the drivers and fixes that are required to make Ubuntu fully functional on those systems.
polishlinux: Many of you, Linux users, have Windows installed on your PCs for only one reason: it’s a game or a program, written only for the Redmond’s system. In the last few months true alternatives have appeared: Cedega and CrossOverOffice.
computerworld: Mozilla has posted mock-ups of Places, one of the most-awaited new features in the upcoming Firefox 3.0., on its Web site. The Places Organizer mock-up uses Windows-Vista styling to show bookmarks, surfing history and downloads in one spot.
kmandla.wordpress.com: elive was the last stop on this little four-day distro-hopping junket for the ugly little laptop, and to be honest, I only tried it because someone suggested it on one of the other reviewlets. I’m glad I took a look though: This is a very impressive desktop.
CLICK: It's not in the "one small step for man" category, but my quest to run something -- anything -- from Red Hat on my VIA C3 Samuel-equipped test box has finally been successful. But not without a lot of effort.
ruminations: Today I spend most of day on a Windows box. Alas, but my boss won’t allow anything but Windows on the workfloor. When the time to play is in short supply I automatically focus on the tools that are created to make life easy. That focus was on graphical front-ends for the ports collection.

Caitlyn Martin: The first public Pseudo (alpha) release of Vector Linux 5.9 is now available. Normally a release like this wouldn’t be worth blogging about. It’s early development code. The point? There’s a 64-bit version.
newyork-ubuntu: I am looking for people who are involved in businesses in New York, preferably non IT related businesses who have switched to using Free and Open Source Software. If you know of anyone who fits this description who would be willing to share their experience with the United Nations on Oct 16, please contact Nathan Eckenrode.
desktoplinux: This engaging and insightful eight-part series by Kim Brebach, a consultant with an Australian technology marketing group, explores the suitability of desktop Linux for ordinary computer users. Follow Brebach's often-amusing foils and fumbles as he investigates a veritable alphabet soup of Linux distributions -- from Damn Small Linux to Zenwalk.
arstechncia: An intrepid Internet Tablet Talk forum member with the handle "Penguinbait" has provided instructions explaining how to install KDE 3.5.6 on the Nokia 770 and N800 web tablet devices. Not for the faint of heart, the instructions require a bit of command-line work.

CBR: Over a year ago CBR published a look at the UK's adoption of open source software in the UK and promised a later update. That update is long overdue, and is also timely given that tomorrow some of the leading open source advocates in the country will gather in Westminster to debate the future of open source in this country.
