kernelTRAP: Jungseung Lee announced the first public release of gitstat, "a GPL'd, web-based git statistics/monitoring system." He explains, "it retrieves a specified git tree, analyzes changesets, and shows graphical information like the number of changesets per day, the number of people who submitted changesets for a specific version(tag), etc."
Sauerbraten (a.k.a. Cube 2) is a free multiplayer/singleplayer first person shooter. Yesterday a new version was released. Some improvements include local server now respects "gamespeed" and "paused" vars, added workaround for crashes with Linux ATI/fglrx drivers, and added dynamic lighting system.
ITtoolbox Blogs: I played a bit with Kubuntu this morning in preparation for the article "PC-BSD for Ubuntu Users". It made sense to me to compare the two operating systems if they were both running the same window manager (KDE) so I wouldn't be distracted by Gnome v.s. KDE issues. That was my first mistake....
iTWire: One of the great strengths of Linux is its multi-faceted network server capabilities, reaching back to its rich UNIX history and the development of TCP/IP on that platform. If you’re a software developer, it’s dead simple to network-enable your own apps too, making them act consistently with other server processes. Here’s how to do it, in two parts.
linux.com: Interclue is a Firefox extension that lets you preview whatever a hyperlink on a page is pointing to. Unlike other link previewers, Interclue doesn't just display a tiny replica of what's hiding under the link.

thefreedesktop.blogspot: My new Acer laptop came with Windows Vista Home Premium preinstalled. I quickly installed Ubuntu on a separate partition - keeping the Vista install for the time being. I use Ubuntu Linux as my primary OS. However for a moment, I was pleased to have kept Vista around.
raiden's realm: An interesting article came up recently on Netcraft that details Microsoft's apparent increase in IIS web server market share. In the article they list a very interesting trend in web server deployments, showing IIS increasing its market share by 1.4% while Apache, Microsoft's biggest rival in the web server market, lost a surprising 1.7% of its market to come out at 34.2% and 48.4% respectively.
Compiz Fusion News: We’ve had quite a few radical changes done to compiz-core and the Compiz Fusion website is in the process of going up, where as I have said previously, this blog will be split in two.
LinuxWorld: The controversial U.S. visa program puts paperwork and quotas between U.S.-based open source companies and international job seekers. "There’s a great concern over undocumented immigrants and we tend to get bundled together with that issue."
CLICK: Everybody loves a new Puppy. And those behind the Puppy Linux distro are happy to oblige, releasing a new version every couple of months. For the user or reviewer, it's a lot to keep up with. Luckily, upgrading is as easy as popping in a new CD.
Motho ke motho ka botho: I could swear that a couple of years ago (has it been that long already?), when I started using Ubuntu, dissatisfied rants against the general state of Linux were shuttled off to jail, never to be seen or heard from again.
foxreno.com: A massive search involving nearly 100 volunteers from both the Contra Costa and Alameda County sheriff's departments has failed to locate the remains of Nina Reiser -- the East Bay mother allegedly killed by her estranged husband.
Fabrizio Balliano: Enabling compiz by default is one of the goals of Ubuntu Gutsy Gibbon (7.10) release, but following a thread on the ubuntu-devel mailing list it seems that the final decision was not taken yet.
techworld.com: The Firefox browser might be the darling of anti-Microsoft Internet users, but that hasn’t stopped it making an enemy of a previously unknown campaigner who wants websites to block it.
polishlinux: Polish Technical Committee no 171 has just voted 80% against the adoption OOXML as an ISO standard [PL]. It’s not the end of the game though, since committee 171 which was first planned to make the decision does not make the final decision anymore. Another committee 182 — will be voting on the same issue soon!

linux.com: Freespire, the free as in beer version of the Linspire Linux distribution, this month released Freespire 2.0, the first version of the operating system based on the popular Ubuntu distribution, and the first to contain proprietary codecs and drivers. Despite its attractive appearance, it left me with mixed feelings.
crn: The effects of the groundbreaking moves are more symbolic than tangible: Solution providers say the path to a broader customer embrace of desktop Linux remains strewn with obstacles. But by committing to bundle, sell and support systems without Microsoft's ubiquitous Windows, Dell and Lenovo have cracked the door open a bit.
