how-to-geek: Amarok is a wonderful application for managing and playing your music collection, but the default settings aren't optimized for speed when it comes to large collections of music. The problems are especially noticeable while trying to use the search box.
linuxworld blogs: The message "New distribution release '7.10' is available." and the "Upgrade" button have been sitting there taunting me for a while, and one of my home servers has donated 25GB of Bittorrent traffic to the task of spreading the new release since it came out last month. But I was on a trip, and we all know not to upgrade the main work laptop right before a trip.
mrzonbu.wordpress: This distribution deserves more detail here, and it will get it in a later post, but so far Fluxbuntu is looking like a solid candidate for a base to build a Debian/Ubuntu derived distro for the Zonbu.
Whenever we go to a store we are bombarded with choices. From mobile(cell,pocket) phones to furnishings, clothes, even trains, planes and automobiles. Wherever you go and whatever you want there is some store out there which will have just the thing for you. That is what makes our lives our own. This is what makes us, us!
wired: As Linux engineer Hans Reiser's murder trial ended its first day here Tuesday, the rift between the defendant and his attorney appeared to be fracturing even more.
linux-noob: Werewolf shall be officially released November 8th, 2007. There are so many new features in Fedora 8 that it would warrant a separate review (coming soon), however I will try and cover some of the main points here.
linuxworld: Faster than virtualization, but harder to implement, containers are a promising security technology for Linux. Watch the 2.6.24 kernel for experimental support for creating and managing containers.
Also: Fixing Compiler Misoptimizations
/dev/loki: The Packman website now has basic support for the new openSUSE One-Click-Install (also known as YMP).
blog.mypapit.net: I’ve always wanted to try and take panoramic photographs using my dad’s Nikon Coolpix 5200. Using a tripod, I took up to 3 sets of photographs with the help of Nikon built-in panorama helper function. To my delight I found Hugin!
Red Hat Magazine: SSH (Secure SHell) is well known to Linux administrators as the de facto method for connecting to other systems. An administrator typically runs SSH to login to another system, often to run a shell on the remote host and issue commands. SSH, however, has many extra tricks up its sleeve beyond simply securing a connection.

LWN: Sixth Floor Labs LLC has announced their existence as a Linux game development company. "Founded by Ethan Glasser-Camp and Carl Li, the company aims to improve Linux's desktop feasibility through the creation of high-quality games."
wired blog: It may be almost a year late, but Flock, the browser dedicated to social networking, has finally released version 1.0. The results are surprisingly compelling.
computerworld: Mozilla Corp. is nearing a release of the first beta of Firefox 3.0, which is several months behind schedule, making a final version of the open-source browser this year unlikely.

linuxworld: In an e-mail, Corbet said that despite "years of effort," Reiser4 has still not made it into the Linux kernel and the future of the technology does not look good. "There are still a couple of people putting some volunteer effort into Reiser4, so it could, just maybe, still make it into the mainline [kernel] someday."
tech.co.uk: Ubuntu 7.10 (codenamed 'Gutsy Gibbon') could arguably be called the 'bling' release of the world's most popular Linux distribution. Swish 3D desktop effects, coupled with a new display configuration tool, make eye-candy the focus. Could this be the version that makes you switch from Windows or Mac OS X?
451 CAOS Theory: I was disappointed when the Open Document Format (ODF) suffered a significant setback with the Massachussetts defeat in July.
