eWeek: When Microsoft's Windows XP went gold back in the fall of 2001, the platform was, practically speaking, the only desktop operating system game in town. But is this town now big enough for Windows and Linux?
phoronix: The third alpha release for Ubuntu 7.10 Gutsy Gibbon is now available for download. New in Ubuntu 7.10 Gutsy Gibbon Tribe 3 include the latest desktop effects powered by Compiz Fusion, the GNOME 2.19.5 development release.
linux.com: In our house, the refrigerator door is where we post the family calendar, showing our family and friends' birthdays, school terms, and important events, along with public holidays. We create the calendar using a nifty command-line program called PCAL, which produces a standard one-month-per-page calendar with each day in a separate box.
kernelTRAP: Ying Huang posted a new version of his hibernation patches that utilize kexec noting two changes, "1) the kexec jump implementation is put into the kexec/kdump framework instead of software suspend framework; and 2) the same code path is used for both kexec a new kernel and jump back to original kernel."

liquidat: Recently I was asked if Linux supports application-wise network filters. Despite the debatable sense behind such a function I was interested in the technical possibilities and current implementations. It turned out that there is no currently active project atm.
Daniel Robbins: It appears that the Gentoo Foundation may be disappearing in a matter of time. Apparently, no one has time to actually do the work required to run the Foundation. There seems to be some momentum building behind the idea of handing over all of Gentoo's intellectual property to another Foundation.
Navigation buttons are essential features of both web pages and application interfaces. In the following tutorial, we create an attractive navigation button in a few simple steps that can be followed even with limited Gimp knowledge.
ars geek: Have you ever wanted to just grab any old TrueType font of the web and start using it in applications on your Ubuntu machine? Did you know that you can and it’s not all that hard? Here’s how to get your system to recognize new fonts for any user.
amarok.kde.org: The Amarok 2 Jingle Contest is well underway, and even though the contest runs until the 1st of October we have already received some pretty cool submissions.
linux.com: Mozilla's Sunbird calendaring application lives perpetually in the shadow of its siblings Firefox and Thunderbird, garnering just a fraction of the developer effort and publicity lavished on the browser and email client. Nevertheless, it is slowing maturing into a reliable tool worthy of the Mozilla brand.
We released 9.22 today and it's a recommended security update. Bit Torrent also received some nice improvements, so it should be quite a bit faster now.
phoronix: Last month was an interesting time for AMD and their ATI Linux display driver. The Radeon HD 2400 and 2600 series were introduced, but as we have unfortunately come to expect, there was not a supported R600 driver that day or even that month.
linux.com: The alpha 1 development release of Damn Small Linux (DSL) 4.0, which hit the Net on Tuesday, is "a very different version" that includes a number of features requested by users on the DSL forums.
open device: KDE 4 is coming, and it is bringing a truckload of improvements and goodies. Among these, there is the brand-new Oxygen icon theme. It is not straightforward to obtain a KDE 3 -installable theme from the KDE 4 SVN repository, however someone (as often happens in the OSS world) has done the dirty work for you
penguin pete: Half of the battle in graphic design is working smarter, not harder. I've done some tutorials for Gimp which push that tool to its limits, but too many folks focus on Gimp and forget that we have a whole arsenal of power graphics tools on the Linux desktop. Here is one image which would have been a pain to do in Gimp, but a snap in Inkscape.
the dot: KDE's new technical documentation library, TechBase, hit an important milestone today when it served up its one millionth page. In step with the KDE 4.0 development cycle, TechBase is rapidly maturing into a central hub for high-level technical information related to KDE and the Free software desktop.
beineri's blog: Today one of my hack week projects went online: openSUSE News. Actually I have been working on it together with Robert Lihm already before and finished it only after.
tectonic: Microsoft's plans of having its OOXML document format accepted as a South African national standard were thwarted by a conclusive vote against the move in a meeting yesterday.
Trusted Reviews: To read most of the digital press, you’d think InDesign was the only big-league desktop publishing (DTP) application anyone took seriously. A few might add QuarkXpress to that. There is a third contender, though, from a rather unusual source.
OpenOffice.org Tips: Here are some great tips that I think are useful: formulas, related items, and calculations built into Edit > Paste Special.
