freesoftwaremagazine.com: SSH tools, long used by UNIX gurus to perform complicated administrative tasks over the internet on machines miles away, are a very simple and user-friendly solution for more conventional purposes. Ubuntu users, read on to learn how to use SSH to run your favorite GNU/Linux software on Microsoft Windows—without installing any software on the Windows box.
linux-watch: Over the last several weeks, the Open Document Foundation has taken back its support for the Open Document Format, and has confused many of its friends. It has now closed up shop.
ittoolboxblogs: I have been experimenting with many different Linux distributions over the last month. In my review of the various distributions, I was looking for ease of install and ease of use as the most important factors in my personal ranking system. I believe for Linux to win the desktop war over the next few years they have to appeal to more then just the technical folks who can install distros in their sleep and are wizards at the command line.
blue-gnu.biz: Gobuntu is a newcomer in the *buntu family. It aims at satisfying Free Software lovers, who, like me, refuse any piece of proprietary blob to run on their machine. This GNU/Linux distribution looks very similar to gNewSense.
ubuntu.com: The UbuntuWire project, created to get developer services to the community by community members, is the culmination of lots of hard work from Ubuntu Developers within the community outside Canonical.
samiux.wordpress: I installed Ubuntu 7.10 SE (my remastered Ubuntu) on a Transcend 8GB Class 6 SDHC card with a no hard drive desktop computer as usual. My desktop is using mobile rack and it is very easy to remove the hard drive.
iTWire: Ok, not really nothing: it’ll cost you $9.99 for a domain name. But once you’ve got that, here’s how to build a dynamic and high-class online presence with free web hosting and the powerful open source blogging and content management system WordPress.
- openSUSE 10.3 Installation
- Ubuntu 7.10 - a computer for every room!
- OpenDocument Foundation is no more
- Ubuntu Gutsy fried my laptop!
- Ubuntu Desktop
news.opensuse.org: As part of their openSUSE release series, Novell Open Audio has talked to Jan-Christoph Bornschlegel and Stephan Kulow about KIWI, openSUSE’s operating system imaging solution. They talk about how you can create a customized distro.
liquidat: RPM Fusion for FedoraI realized that I missed an interesting development in the Fedora community: the rise of RPM Fusion, a merge of Livna, Freshrpms and Dribble.
tech.blorge.com: That $200 Everex gPC that Walmart has been advertising has proven to be quite the hit in its online store, currently being out of stock but can still be picked up at select brick and mortar locations.
paulsdigitalworld.blogspot: Now Compiz, Beryl is all over the place and there are massive discussions about it. But I have a few doubts about it. First of all, how do we benchmark an interface, especially its efficiency. I would like to propose a few speculations.
microsoft-watch.com: My Linux-Watch colleague Steven J. Vaughan-Nichols asks if Vista has "caught up with desktop Linux yet?" Yeah, I spit out my coffee, too.
It's Linux that has the catching up to do.
informationweek.com/blog: It's been ten years since Slashdot emerged from Rob Malda's personal Chips & Dip site. Also known by his Slashdot signature, Cmdr Taco, Malda had an interest in developments outside the computer department at the college and started posting newsy items to his personal site on early pieces of open source code, such as Linux, little known at the time.
penguin pete: This isn't really an Earth-shattering technique, but I've lucked out with it enough times to warrant a tutorial. It actually fits with the popular art-school methods for drawing a figure on paper, especially for drawing superhero-type figures.
byethost5.com/blog: A few weeks ago I installed PCLinuxOS for the first time and was impressed by the ease of stabilizing my internet connection and the speed of installation. Since that first day PCLinuxOS managed to surprise me several other times.
Also: PCLinuxOS — Linux for the masses
nosrednaekim.wordpress: With the release of a (somewhat) stable KDE4 Beta4, I have decided to switch from KDE3.5.8 to KDE4. I decided to compile from source following the excellent instructions on the Techbase.
Caitlyn Martin: A while back the good folks behind Freespire, the free version of Linspire, sent me a CD with version 2.0 for me to review. I knew going in that Freespire was “free as in free beer." For those of us who are not free software purists Freespire does have one compelling feature.
nixcraft: You can use logsave command to save the output of a command in a logfile. General syntax is as follows: logsave /path/to/logfile command-name argument(s)
the distrogue: Buried deep in the Linux man pages is a command called dd. You know how short commands like cat, ps, grep, rm or mv are really powerful? dd owns all of them. It copies data between block files- image files or device files.
