Aaron Seigo: Some of the blockers for mainstream Linux desktop usage are lack of legal codecs, hardware integration and certain types of basic functionality like software suspend not working reliably. This is not news, of course, but rather the typical gripes people have had for years. Even as much of the Free software has reached the point of being true-blue entries in the top echelons of functionality and quality, some of these issues continue to nag at us unanswered.
blino's mandriva blog: While trying to reproduce and debug UnionFS bugs with VirtualBox, I needed to extract a copy of the call traces. Screenshots are not easily usable, so I tried the "serial ports" feature of VirtualBox.
tuxdeluxe: In the computing world, ISO standards have a mixed record. But standards don't rule the computing world. Microsoft has historically had an ambivalent view of standards. This historical record makes the recent global activities over the "Office Open XML" (OOXML) document format so interesting.
matt asay: Back in April I was fortunate to host Mark Shuttleworth at an Arsenal game and then dinner. Today, we repeated the day with an amazingly fun day at the Arsenal vs. Tottenham match. I asked Mark two poignant questions about Ubuntu:
kdedevelopers: There has been some discussion on the kde-core-devel mailing list about a change to how the active window should be distinguished from the inactive windows, where different color palettes are used for the widgets inside inactive windows.
linux movement: The first one is a nifty last fm applet which sits on your dock so you can listen to your last fm stations. The next new Applet is the gmail notifier Apple. Here are some nice images:
blogbeebe: As I went rambling about the web I came across OSNews and checked out an article on the release of Fedora 8 Test 2. Right there in the middle of the article was the Microsoft ad you see below.
kernelTRAP: Randy Dunlap sent a patch to the Linux kernel mailing list described as adding "info about various email clients and their applicability in being used to send Linux kernel patches."
zdnet blogs: Microsoft’s proposal for the fast track of the OOXML standard was recently shot down by the ISO. Google concludes that Microsoft’s OOXML should never be standardized due to things like reliance on proprietary elements and simply not enough time to review the >6000 page document that outlines the standard.
mr-open-source: Bash scripts are a powerful tool used by linux/unix adminstrators. When developing scripts a good code structure is invaluable to a seasoned administrator. This article will show how to write an apache webserver log rotation script and hopefully give you a solid structural foundation to start writing your own bash scripts.
daniweb: On the 11th September a customer of the PC World computer superstore in Colliers Wood, London took his laptop back for an under warranty repair. The computer was only a few months old, and a crack had appeared near the left hinge which is indicative of an internal joint failing.
phoronix: AMD started delivering on their word of providing GPU specifications to the open-source community without a Non-Disclosure Agreement, and now with the 2007 X Developer Summit having come to a close, we asked several key members of the X.Org community on how they judge AMD's recent move.
kernelTRAP: Sam Ravnborg took a look at the x86 unification patches and commented, "from the mails and discussions I expected it be be obvious what was i386 only, what was shared and what was x86_64 only."
J_K9 @ Linux: Linux and Open Source software are not entirely free: they have setup costs, maintenance costs and time and productivity costs. Despite all of these costs, many SMBs still choose to switch to Linux and Open Source. Why?
A.P.Lawrence: Today I meandered down state to answer a distress call on a Linux box exhibiting a number of baffling symptoms (well, they baffled me on the phone at least). Seemed odd, so I drove on down. Imagine my delight to find a RedHat 6.2 box.
ubuntu geek: Webilder delivers stunning wallpapers to your Linux desktop, directly from Flickr and Webshots. You choose what keywords (tags) to watch for, and photos are automatically downloaded to your computer.
ITPro: Not so long ago the common wisdom was that free and open source software would grow strongly in the market for infrastructure software - operating systems, databases and web servers that have a generic applicability across all markets - but that non-free software would continue to dominate in the realm of vertical markets - where applications fulfil a specific role in a specialised commercial environment.
drupal.org: After eight months of development, we are proud to let you know that the first beta version of the Drupal 6.x family is released. This beta includes a tremendous number of new features and new programming APIs for both users and developers.
After consistently rising in the DistroWatch H.P.D. rankings for months, PCLinuxOS finally managed to bump Ubuntu from the top of the list. Despite all, PCLinuxOS seems to attract a constantly increasing number of clicks.
