ubuntu-tutorials: This week I’m teaching out in Portland, OR in a Linux Fundamentals class. A small part of one of this weeks chapter is on screen.
And: The Ultimate Linux Reference Guide for Newbies
&: Using “tee” to write to files and the terminal
ServerWatch: The discussion and debate over the wording of GPL3 has crept into the mainstream tech news, which is a bit surprising. After all, it's just a software license. There are hundreds of software licenses, and in my opinion the ones that should be making the news and generating outrage are the standard EULAs (End-User License Agreements) that infest commercial, closed-sourced software.
Dana Blankenhorn: Got work? If you program with open source chances are the answer to that question is yes.
Penguin Pete's: Congratulations to the Tux500 team. Along with your reckless destruction of Linux, your insane pressure on a driver to carry out your mad scheme has driven him to the breaking point. He's now hospitalized with back pain. Considering the reaction by helios and gang is to JOKE about it.
Beyond Caffeine: I have been an adamant Ubuntu supporter since I was ‘converted’ to it - but I have been quite disappointed with Feisty (AKA: Version 7.04). Not Feisty itself, but the process.
Linux.com: Storage manufacturers are getting ready to start shipping solid state disks, and Linux-based devices like One Laptop per Child's XO and Intel's Classmate don't contain standard hard disks. To improve performance on the wide array of flash memory storage devices now available, project leader Jërn Engel has announced LogFS, a scalable filesystem specifically for flash devices.
FOSSwire: Application start up times can be annoying if they are really really slow. Part of this latency is a process where before the executable can run, the OS needs to work out which libraries it needs to kick into action.
linuxondesktop: Ubuntu because of many licensing restrictions , and nature of open source products dosn't include many codecs , applications that a windows refugee would look in a Desktop Linux Distribution . Linux Mint takes a step in addressing this problem .
Helios: Mr. Chastain however, comes from a more refined environment. When he embraced the Linux Community and welcomed us into his endeavor, it was with the idea that we were a sincere, civilized group who were of one mind and focus. He was happy he could help us gain the attention we seek. Unfortunately, that is not what he experienced.
And: "Marketers! Marketers! Marketers!"
behindkde.org: For the next interview in the fortnightly People Behind KDE series we travel to North America for the first time this series to talk to an IRC veteran and the author of ground-shaking, in-depth promotional articles on the interesting road towards KDE 4 - tonight's star of People Behind KDE is Troy Unrau.
ITsecurity: If you've recently switched from Windows to the Linux distribution Ubuntu, you've probably experienced a decrease in spyware -- and malware in general -- on your system. But although Ubuntu is billed as the ultra-secure solution, you should know that even though Ubuntu's default install has its flaws, like every other operating system.
LinuxJournal: Two weeks ago, I heard that Progeny Linux Systems of Indianapolis had closed its doors for the last time. The end was a long-time coming – in fact, six years longer than I predicted. All the same, I paused last week for a bit of nostalgia.
fareast's diary: My latest dual boot fun is with PCLinuxOS. If Ubuntu is the most solid of recent easy to set up distros, then PCLOS is the fastest and most complete out of the box.
Motho ke motho ka botho: I’ll have to glaze over the last few console programs I wanted to mention, and leave it to you to investigate them fully.
Red Hat Mag: I know there are many OS X users curious about running Linux on their Mac hardware, but are overwhelmed with the configuration options. There are also many Linux users who want to work on one machine and would like to dual-boot OS X and Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.
Linux.com: About ten years ago, the first DVD players shipped to the United States. After a slow start, the DVD has almost completely replaced video tapes and has become the de facto standard for the movie industry. Creating DVDs on a Linux machine can be a complex task, but can be made much easier by using 'Q' DVD-Author.
phoronix: If you were hoping to use a Creative X-Fi series sound card under Linux in the near future, think again.
Pimp Your Linux: This OSx looking dock is by far the most advanced that I have reviewed in regards to graphics, and eye candy. However, it is a very new dock, and still might be unstable, so make sure to run it for a good while on your system, before comitting to it.
CyberNetNews: Early this year I updated you on what was happening with this release, and it has progressed quite nicely since then. Since I’m a pre-release junkie I couldn’t help but see what has improved since my last look at the browser.
Groklaw: When SCO started threatening to sue over Linux, it offered Linux users protection from lawsuits if they'd buy a SCOsource license. Some did. A smattering. Now Linux users are being offered a "patent peace" with Microsoft in a very similar way, only this time, it's supposedly patents backing up the threat. Or is it?
- Is Microsoft’s ODF vote supposed to make amends for its patent attack?
- Microsoft Patents Linux Impact: Red Hat vs. Novell
- Q&A: Microsoft won't sue over Linux, for now
- How dumb does Microsoft think we are?
