The Linux Movement: Screenlets if you don't know it are little widget like things for your desktop. And if you use Compiz Fusion or Beryl you can use the like Mac's dashboard if you turn the widget plug in on.
linux-watch: Intellectual property may be off the table, for now, but it sure seems like Red Hat and Microsoft are still dancing around coming to some kind of partnership relationship.
phoronix: While the Avivo driver doesn't yet contain 3D functionality or support a number of features found in the official fglrx driver and the community Radeon driver, it is making steady progress despite its age. As we have begun to receive messages from those interested in this driver wondering about the performance capabilities, we have carried out a brief GtkPerf test.
linux.com: Matt Mullenweg, the founding developer of the ultra-popular open source WordPress blogging platform, has issued a blunt edict that "all sponsored themes should be removed from themes.wordpress.net" before the WordCamp conference beginning on July 21, a decree that has met with widespread approval in the WordPress community.
sheehantu: Recently I’ve been seeing a lot of posts on digg about installing LAMP. I thought I’d take some time and inform those who are unfamiliar what exactly LAMP is, and how it is powering the Web 2.0 revolution.
Carla Schroder: KeyTouch is an excellent program designed to put all those unsupported multi-media keys to useful work in Linux, instead of lying about uselessly. Some applications come with various launch options.

Arun's Blog: Intel launched a website today for mobile and internet Linux projects. The website named moblin hosts the Mobile & Internet Linux Project which is an umbrella, open source project focused on the development of Linux for Intel-based devices.

techpersona: Today’s “Newbie Tip” is learning some basics about the “Command Line Interface” or as it’s mostly referred to, “Command Line”. The command line gives the user the ability to interact with the operating system by typing via a text terminal.
seopher: It can't be easy being Fedora; the once cream of the crop release being entirely overshadowed by the young upstart that is Ubuntu. Times have changed and things have been increasingly hard for Fedora - forever slipping in the Distrowatch popularity chart.
kernelTRAP: In response to a recent merge request, Linus Torvalds explained a best practice when moving and changing code, "when doing renames it is generally *much* nicer to do a 100% rename (perhaps with just _trivial_ changes to make it compile - the include statements etc change, and maybe you want to change the name in the comment header too)."
linux.com: Wyneken belongs in the growing list of note-taking applications for GNOME, along with the Sticky Notes panel apps, Evolution, and Tomboy. Specifically designed for students' needs, it is equally well-suited to the random jottings that anyone might make during the course of their work, as well as letters, reports, presentations, and even man pages.
Dana Blankenhorn: Of all the relationships changed by open source, perhaps the most nagging is that between business and politics. There’s another taste of that in today’s news, word the BBC is looking to make an open source version of its iPlayer.
The Syllable team are proud to announce the release of Syllable 0.6.4! Syllable 0.6.4 contains many new features, enhancements and bug fixes from previous releases.
Raiden's Realm: Window Maker is a window manager that, while having elements of a desktop environment, does keep very strongly to the principles of a basic, light weight window manager. It has an extremely simple, mouse driven interface and in some ways operates in the old NextStep blueprint of functionality.
In this week's KDE Commit-Digest: Much work in Amarok, with the implementation of a CoverFlow-esque OpenGL album art visualisation, codenamed "CoverBling", and Service Framework and Plasmification efforts. Sample OpenGL-based applets added to Plasma.
