The Linux Movement: Now a little while ago I posted about a new Awn mock up that looked really great designed by Awn forum user Meek. Well to be exact I posted about it on August 15. Now why is that date important? Thats about when the idea was first posted on the Awn forum. This is now 9 days later, and we have a working preview of this mock-up already! Now that is progress!
consortiuminfo.org: This just in: China has unanimously voted "no, with comments" on OOXML. As I had noted in an earlier blog entry, China had been signalling some displeasure with Microsoft and OOXML in recent weeks, via Xinhua, the official government news agency, so this is not totally a surprise.
linuxdevices: A start-up in the French Alps near Grenoble is readying its second Linux SBC (single-board computer) the size and shape of a USB memory stick. Calao's USB-S8815 is based on a 333MHz ARM9 processor, runs Linux 2.6, and has 128MB each of flash and RAM.
kmandla.wordpress.com: All right, if you’re still using Firefox, you need to put down the mouse right now. Just put it down. Let go. Relax your index finger for a few minutes. Most of the about:config tweaks that work for Firefox also work for Kazehakase.
blogbeebe: Downloaded, burned, and booted into Ubuntu 7.10 alpha 5 just to kick the virtual tires. Impressed over all with the quality of this alpha release, and I can see (and appreciate) where Canonical is going with Ubuntu.

tom-buntu: Screenlets are themed mini-applications programmed in Python. They are comparable to the widgets in OSX and Windows. This post will guide you through installing Screenlets and setting them up with Compiz Fusion to work similarly to widgets in Apple’s OSX.
Moving to Freedom: I’m guessing that most people with a digital camera or a web site have spent time cropping pictures. There are lots of programs that can do this. In this post I hope to show you that the GIMP is a great tool for cropping pictures.
phoronix: This week the Linux client for Enemy Territory: Quake Wars has entered beta. Unlike the Windows client, the Linux client is not available as a public beta.
covarr.blogspot: All over the place, I'm seeing websites and blogs claiming that everybody needs to switch to Linux. Some say Ubuntu, some say Debian, and some say Slackware, but they all seem to agree on Linux in general. I have created a list of five reasons why they are wrong.
credence: FVWM image pictureFVWM is one of the big mysteries of the open source world. It is an extremely versatile window manager, configurable up to every possible aspect. However, many beginners are somewhat scared because they do not know exactly how to go about learning to use FVWM. This is what we will talk about here.
Fabrice Facorat: Previously I talked about PackageKit, a DBUS system to handle packages, especially for the updates mecanism. So what's new on PackageKit front ?

kernelTRAP: "The elections for five of the ten members of the Linux Foundation Technical Advisory Board[TAB] are held every year, currently the election will be at the 2007 Kernel Summit in a BOF session," James Bottomley, the TAB chair, announced on the Linux Kernel mailing list.
linux.com: In 2004 Daniel Robbins, the founder of Gentoo Linux, walked away from the project after creating the nonprofit Gentoo Foundation to handle its intellectual property (IP). In a blog post last month, Robbins wondered if he should take back the software, since it didn't appear the foundation was taking care of things. While Robbins didn't follow through on his thought, he raised an interesting question: Can someone convey intellectual property rights and then reclaim them?
freesoftware mag: On Sunday, August 5, 2007 Bush signed the revised Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) into law, in which the U.S. Congress spinelessly caved in and gave legal authority to the Bush administration to continue to intercept and spy on electronic communications. Then, on Thursday, August 16, 2007 the whole worldwide Skype network goes down. Coincidence?
Groklaw: Heise is reporting now that there is an uproar over how the OOXML vote was handled in Germany. That happened in Switzerland too, where two formal objections have been filed. Portugal was a bit of a mess too, from reports we've heard. Now the same kinds of complaints are being heard from Germany.

ITWeek: Vista is pricey, and its form and function are of course dictated by Microsoft. If you want full control over your Home Theater PC (HTPC), and don’t want to have to pay Microsoft for it, then Linux is a more than capable alternative base for building a system of your own.
Warren Woodford of MEPIS has announced Beta2 of SimplyMEPIS 7.0. The kernel in Beta2 is version 22.214.171.124 which is a security update from the Kernel Development Team. All of the MEPIS Assistants and the Installer were updated to fix minor problems reported by testers. Amarok was updated to version 1.4.7. There were minor updates to some KDE 3.5.7 packages.
Linux Journal: Okay, I'm not seriously suggesting Microsoft is paying off Netcraft to produce positive survey results (although this is certainly a standard operating procedure for Microsoft). But something is odd, if not rotten, in the state of Netcraft.
Jono Bacon: Guess what folks, its coming to that time again…you got it - Ubuntu Developer Summit time!!
