linux.com: For several years Puppy Linux has been breathing life into old and dated hardware, but instead of being just another minimalistic distribution, Puppy boasts smart features that save resources without cutting down the number of applications. The latest major Puppy release, Puppy 3.00, continues this trend by making the less than 100MB distro binary-compatible with Slackware 12 and providing other enhancements.
phoronix: We've had repeated requests for a power comparison between Windows and different Linux distributions. Well, in this article are the first set of results from that testing. We've compared the power consumption of Microsoft Windows XP, Windows Vista, Fedora 7, and Ubuntu 7.10.
linux journal: Development of native Linux audio plugins and softsynths may not be so relentlessly rapid as it is in the Windows and Mac sound software worlds, but new things do appear. This week I profile a cool new (well, relatively new) Linux softsynth, William Weston's Phase Harmonic Advanced Synthesis EXperiment, also known as Phasex.
blogs.the451group: The Open Source Initiative has announced that the OSI Board has approved the Microsoft Public License (Ms-PL) and the Microsoft Reciprocal License (Ms-RL) as satisfying the criteria of the Open Source Definition, following their submission in August.
The KDE Project today announced the immediate availability of KDE 3.5.8, a maintenance release for the latest generation of the most advanced and powerful free desktop for GNU/Linux and other UNIXes.
digital arts: The BBC and Adobe has announced a strategic relationship that will see the BBC adopt Adobe's Flash Player software, allowing Mac and Linux users to use the broadcaster's iPlayer streaming video service for the first time.
ExtremeTech: If you take the time to look around, you'll find lots of software for both Windows and GNU/Linux that meet these specifications. To help you evaluate the best choice for your needs, we'll skim off the cream of the crop.
I raved about the new Mandriva 2008.0 Power Pack as I was truly smitten. I switched to Mandriva from Windows fulltime back when it was known as Mandrake, so I've followed it's releases fairly closely. I found Mandriva 2008 Power Pack to be the best release since Mandrake 7.2. But what about the Free version? We all know the advertised differences, but were there going to be major differences in performance and stability? I set out to see.
ubuntu.com: AppArmor helps you keep your computer secure by restricting what certain applications can do. This means that if somebody discovers a new way to exploit protected software, AppArmor helps reduce the risk by limiting access to resources defined in the application profile.

This tutorial shows how you can set up a Mandriva 2008 Free (Mandriva 2008.0) desktop that is a full-fledged replacement for a Windows desktop, i.e. that has all the software that people need to do the things they do on their Windows desktops. The advantages are clear: you get a secure system without DRM restrictions that works even on old hardware, and the best thing is: all software comes free of charge.
In this week's KDE Commit-Digest: Replacement of the "toolbox", and a new KRunner in Plasma, with many applets moving from playground into extragear in KDE SVN. SuperKaramba is now fully integrated into Plasma. A move away from KDEPrint facilities, towards more basic functionality for KDE 4.0.
OSWeekly: I have been successfully using GIMP for what seems like years. It's free, it's stable and once you understand the rather strange menu layout, it actually provides fantastic functionality. But the reality remains that some people are still trying to come off their Photoshop dependency, and for these individuals, the argument about how fantastic it is tends to fall on deaf ears.
c|net: On Thursday, Canonical plans to release "Gutsy Gibbon," the Ubuntu Linux version 7.10 that the company hopes will lay the foundation for a serious push into the server and other markets six months from now.
Carla Schroder: One of the (very many) areas in which Linux has pulled ahead of the pack is with live, complete Linux distributions on every form of removable media. There are dozens, if not hundreds, of different rescue Linuxes, so we'll take a tour of my favorites.
geekzone.co.nz: Even in this day and age you can sometimes still hear the echo of the old FUD: Installing software under Linux is difficult. Really? Maybe that was the case in the past, but it certainly doesn't hold for modern Linux distributions anymore.
magepower.org: Hello Jaka, thank you for taking the time to do this interview for Mage Power. Would you tell us about yourself and how you became interested in Linux?
cubicgarden: So its been a while but I'm finally getting my head around the gnu/linux system and environment. There are some great things about the switch which makes me cringe everytime I go back into windows (on my work pc and when I want to read my busted sd card - more on this soon). But there are some bad things too.
