linux.com: The most referenced and most often used command on any Linux distribution is man, which lets users read the manual pages of other commands. Here are a couple of less well-known but useful commands that let you bookmark a position within a man page, and test a command you read from the man page without closing the page.
The Open Source Advocate: I want to discuss one of the ideas that Bruce Perens mentioned. He believes that open source vendors are not necessary, and that they do not add any value to the open source movement. I disagree with him on this point, and I will share my reasons below.
linux.com: If you have video footage that you want to capture, edit, and share with friends or family (or even use professionally), you'll be happy to know that you can do it all with open source tools. I'll show you how to author a DVD that can play on most home players.
my.opera.com: My Opera synchronization is a feature of Kestrel which is designed to let you keep the same bookmarks and speed dials on different computers with Opera installed.
kernelTRAP: The attached patch will make kswapd stop paging out data from zones when there is more than enough memory free. We do go above zone->pages_high in order to keep pressure between zones equal in normal circumstances, but the patch should prevent the kind of excesses that made Sami's computer totally unusable.
vertito.blogspot: BitTorrent, an extremely handy tool on downloading large torrent files regardless of internet speed rate you have with interruption between connection breakups.
matt asay: You've got to hand it to Microsoft. It hates ANYTHING and ANYONE that gets in its way of selling its software. Including, apparently, itself.
The last Kanotix release (based on Debian Sid) came out in October, 2006. Shortly thereafter, a Kanotix co-developer (and many of Kanotix's other developers) left the project, mainly due to a disagreement over whether Kanotix should be based on Sid (Debian's unstable branch) or something less volatile, like Etch (Debian's current stable branch) or Ubuntu. Kanotix's founder now has a new, Etch-based version of Kanotix in development, code-named "Thorhammer."

linux-watch: For years, if you wanted an inexpensive, but Windows-compatible file and print server, you turned to Samba running on Linux. Now, with the first alpha release of Samba 4, this open-source project is moving closer to becoming a complete Windows 2003/Longhorn replacement.
just uber: Battlestar Galactica: Beyond the Red Line is a 3D space combat simulation which takes place inside the Battlestar Galactica universe. The game is free, and the good folks over at Game Warden have also released a Linux client for it. Here’s how to get it up and running on Ubuntu.
CLICK: I decided that I needed the Palm back in my life. So it was time to get the Palm and Linux talking to each other. I'd had bad experiences before in Ubuntu with J-Pilot -- it's hell just to get the Palm to sync with the Linux box. This time it was different.
Linux App Finder: In the game you control a party of characters through nine chapters, each with a specific goal. And just like a book, different chapters sometimes follow different characters.
liquidat: The klik development team has recently released a screencast of the currently developed software system klik2. While currently in development klik2 is supposed too solve quite some problems regarding software usage and Linux once it is released. And indeed the current available information are very promising.
Forbes: Due in part to stronger than expected earnings reports, technology stocks have held their own in what has been an increasingly volatile market environment. Novell is among these stocks.
techspot.com: Even though their first generation Eee PC has yet to launch later this month, Asus is reportedly already planning to release their second generation Eee PC in April 2008 featuring Intel's Merom processor, reduced power consumption and no cooling fan.
phoronix: Mark Shuttleworth has been very vocal about the adoption of free software. Mark Shuttleworth has provided Phoronix some of his initial thoughts on ATI/AMD's new Linux push.
kernelTRAP: During the continuing debates regarding the legality and fairness of re-licensing BSD licensed code, it was asked why the BSD license couldn't be extracted from Windows applications known to include BSD licensed code. OpenBSD creator Theo de Raadt explained, "what you ran strings on is not 'source code'. It was the binary.
iTWire: For the second time in six months, a flamefest has broken out between those who release software under the BSD (Berkely Software Distribution) licence and others who release software under the General Public Licence.
