jucato.org: I just suddenly felt an urge to right about KDE after reading troy’s recent post (Troy, your marketing fever and ideas are contagious!!). I will probably be writing about something that has been written over and over again, but let me give it my own personal flavor. So…
gonz.wordpress: I’m currently posting this using Firefox 126.96.36.199 running in Ubuntu 7.04 Feisty Fawn Under Parallels Desktop 3 on my MacBook Pro 15-inch Intel Core Duo.
blogbeebe: I downloaded three ISOs; the Gnome and KDE Live CDs, and the binary DVD. I burned all three and tested three machines with the two live CDs.
polishlinux: I don’t really remember when and where, but I have read once about that GIMP isn’t suitable to create pseudo 3D graphics. Nothing more fallible. I will try to show you that it’s wrong.
freegamer: The team over at Extreme Tux Racer - the latest fork to take on the Tux Racer continuation mantle - have made their inaugral release. It's still a bedding-in period with no real major updates other than a new campaign (cup?) but hopefully it will signal the start of a new lease of life for development of a popular open source franchise.
howtogeek: Ubuntu Gutsy is the next major release of the most popular Linux distro, due for release in October. Like all Linux distributions you can upgrade to the beta version anytime you want, as long as you don't mind encountering a few bumps in the road.
Dana Blankenhorn: I was sent a link to a Hava support thread on the issue, which was still online at this writing. The thread makes it clear that the facts of the case are on the side of GPL advocates, and that many people are checking the tools they get, looking for GPL violations.
Rivo's blog: One of the most interesting things is compositing settings autodetection. KWin now tries to detect your video driver and it's version and if it's good enough then compositing will be enabled by default.
Also: In praise of KDE Edu and Games
ruminations: Any desktop that wants to cater to the needs and wants of end users has to be multimedia enabled or at least be enabled as easy and quickly as possible. How is PC-BSD holding up in this regard?
linux electrons: On July 18th 2007, Everex launched its first 'Back to School' PC with OpenOffice.org 2.02 into WalMart stores throughout the United States. The response was fantastic.
kmandla.wordpress.com: This is a system that’s built around visual impact. And it succeeds, in spite of this archaic hardware. Visually this puts everyone else to shame.
thanhniennews.com: The Vietnamese agent for Asianux, an Asian consortium distributing open source software LINUX, is set to develop the open source software market in the country.
vizzzion.org: The KDE Release Team has a list with things that need to happen before we can get KDE 4.0 out of the door. We need to get our noses aligned and head for 4.0.
vertito.blogspot.com: In the Open Source world, linux gives us more freedom and alternatives on achieving things from simple to complex technical server and dsektop issues. Linux applications does not confine us into one corner spot of the room and learn from that corner spot alone all time through. Linux open source applications expands your knowledge from your own stand point of interest supported by worldwide community and not from a commercially grown application interests.

kernelTRAP: "sched_yield() is not - and should not be - about 'recalculating the position in the scheduler queue' like you do now in CFS," Linus Torvalds stated in a discussion with Completely Fair Scheduler author Ingo Molnar.
Also: White Space
grumpy mole: AWN is developing so quickly that it is worthwhile updating and recompiling on a daily basis to see the changes. Today brought a new look for the Volume-Control-Applet and a new Icon effect: 3D turn.
zrusin.blogspot: Critics are raving: "Gallium 3D is the best thing that ever happened to Free Software graphics", "It's breathtaking!", "Never before has nudity been so tasteful!"... Alright, maybe not the last one. Actually none of them, since it's a brand new project. In fact that's the point of this entry. To introduce you two.
groklaw: I can usually tell what the new Microsoft anti-Linux FUD is by reading what Rob Enderle writes. Not that I seek it out. People send it to me. He's as reliable as Old Faithful at spilling the strategies, just as he channeled SCOthink before. I found it very helpful, by the way. Thanks for being so transparent.
LinuxWorld: Heather Carver faced major dilemmas when she became the IT director at Windsor Unified School District in California one year ago. There was no virus protection, no data backup, and upgrading to current Microsoft technologies would have cost more than $100,000, half of the district’s IT budget. Buying security from Trend Micro to cover all seven schools would have cost $200,000 a year. The solution to most of Windsor’s problems boiled down to two words: open source.
eWeek: Gartner declared open-source software the biggest disruptor the software industry has ever seen and postulated it will eventually result in cheaper software and new business models.
