linuxworld: One of the fundamental principles of Linux kernel development is that user-space interfaces are set in stone. Once an API has been made available to user space, it must, for all practical purposes, be supported (without breaking applications) indefinitely.
rudd-O: Let’s dig into the deep dark Moron Web. Today, we’ll explore the “wonderful” lessons that Danny Carlton, of Firefox blocking infamy, has for us.
linux-watch: Is this a joke? I only recently started paying attention to Windows Home Server, since I tend to focus more on desktop operating systems and enterprise server systems. So I didn't realize until now that WHS is really just a vanilla file server. Why pay extra for it?
arstechnica: When I make a new GTK theme, I usually start with an existing theme that I like and then refine it over the course of several weeks until I no longer feel compelled to make additional changes. My themes tend to evolve and increase in consistency over time, and I'm very picky about the visual appearance of my desktop.
Fabrice Facorat: One of the new feature of Mandriva 2008.0 is a revamped and unified UI to show and configure the network settings : Network Center ( draknetcenter ). This new config tool allow to see and configured all the network interface in the same UI.

linux.com: Managing disk space used to be a royal pain for admins and users. Running out of disk space often meant reinstalling Linux or spending a few hours with tools like Parted to resize partitions. However, using the Logical Volume Manager (LVM) tools, you can grow, shrink, and manage disk space with very little hassle.
desktoplinux: If everything goes well, Ubuntu 7.10, Gutsy Gibbon, the next community version of the popular Linux distribution, will appear in October. It will not, however, include the latest and greatest X window server and utilities: Xserver 1.4 and X.Org 7.3.

To talk about microformats and their progress in their way to Firefox 3 final, I talked with Michael Kaply, the owner of the microformats support module and author of Operator, a powerful extension that allows Firefox to interact with microformats.
tomdryer.com: I use some common Linux tools to remotely support my Grandparents’ PC. These tools are SSH and X11vnc. X11vnc lets me take over the display, and the VNC traffic is tunneled with SSH. They can be a bit of work to set up, but work beautifully.
enterprise linux log: California-based IP gurus Palamida emailed me this week with some intriguing GPLv3 information that I thought I’d share with everyone this morning. Apparently all the GPLv3 haters can go to lunch, because the little license that could is seeing adoption rates of approximately 14% week-over-week.
Richard M. Stallman: On the evening of August 15 I was answering email in the offices of COSOLIG, the free software organization of the Universidad Inca Garcilaso de la Vega in Lima. I was just about to do a batch mail transfer when the earthquake began. It was strong enough to shake my body in an interesting way, but insufficient to damage a concrete building, or even to make a bookshelf fall over.

onlamp blogs: The spirit of the open source movement operates under the assumption that software’s most valued resource, its code, should be freely available to everyone. Despite the obvious advantages of making code readily available to anyone around the world, there are some cultural differences that complicate the open source movement.
vista.blorge.com: As you may recall, outgoing PC Magazine editor Jim Louderback had almost nothing good to say about Vista in his most recent column. Just about everyone I know that has used Vista is going to stick with it and Information Week poses the reasons why that not so strangely, I agree with.
