computerworld: Like many gearheads, I've owned a lot of portable computers over the years -- and I've wanted to replace every last one with a smaller, sleeker upgrade. The Asus Eee came around, leaving a trail of effusive reviews and eager buyers. I started to feel the same old hope: Could the Eee be the Mini-Me of PCs that I've been searching for all these years?
linux.com: With IT budgets getting tighter, managers need to trim costs. Service contracts are expensive for any technology; firewalls are no exception. Netfilter, the project that provides the packet filtering program iptables, is a free firewall alternative.

phoronix: One of the special abilities of ATI's R600 GPU family is the integrated 5.1 surround sound audio support through HDMI. Many Radeon HD 2000 and HD 3800 series graphics cards also ship with a DVI to HDMI dongle, so that one can experience the full video playback capabilities of these discrete graphics cards. But what level of HDMI support can Linux users expect when using these latest ATI graphics cards?
computerworld: The New York Stock Exchange is investing heavily in x86-based Linux systems and blade servers as it builds out the NYSE Hybrid Market trading system that it launched last year. Flexibility and lower cost are among the goals. But one of the things that NYSE Euronext CIO Steve Rubinow says he most wants from the new computing architecture is technology independence.
Matt Asay: There are positives and negatives to take away from Novell's earnings call. More importantly, Linux revenue was up 69% (both for the quarter and for the year), to $22 million in the quarter and $77 million for the year. That's nothing to cry about.
I have to say, that the video manipulation program FFMPEG, which very powerful, is not very user-friendly when it comes to installation. Here's how I achieved this on a Debian Etch server........
iTWire: Mozilla Foundation, the organization behind the Firefox web browser, has defended itself against claims from sections of the Linux community that it has ignored Linux in the development of Firefox 3, the next generation of the browser. Mozilla's chief interface designer says Linux is very much included in the development project.
emmaalvarez.com: The users of Ubuntu have a big range of software to choose and install, but it's hard to choose what software is the best for your needs. This list hopes to help.
linux.com: I've been using and advocating free software for around six years. When studying and then working as a freelance writer, migrating an office seemed so simple -- draw up a list of comparable programs and, over a reasonable period, move your staff across. But over the past few weeks I've been trying to use Ubuntu Gutsy on my desktop PC in a Windows-based office, and whilst most things work just fine, it's far from the seamless integration I was hoping for.
CentOS is just a clone of Red Hat Enterprise Linux, and really a good clone. It is a really good distribution for server/workstation users who do not want to pay extortion money to Red Hat. But for casual desktop user, I advise to stay clear.
crn.com: In Round 1 of The World Series of Linux, Ubuntu 7.10 "Gutsy Gibbon" outperformed both Freespire and Xandros in a series of real-world office tests conducted by the CMP Channel Test Center. In Round 2, it's SLED 10 vs. Fedora 7 vs. PCLinuxOS!
earthweb.com: Apple and Linux are engaged in battle – a battle to win over disgruntled Windows users. But who will win, and what will the consequences be for the loser?
smallbusinesscomputing.com: While desktop Linux has increasingly come to resemble Windows in look and feel, thus making it easier for people to switch teams, as it were, it has faced two significant stumbling blocks: limited applications and limited hardware support.
Linux Magazine: Today we have a technological cage match involving two operating systems, both UNIX- based, both mature, both with passionate detractors and even more passionate defenders, and both released just a week apart. I'm talking, of course, about Ubuntu 7.10 and Apple' s Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard.
wired blog: Two witnesses testified at Hans Reiser's murder trial Thursday they saw him acting strangely in the days following his wife's disappearance.

Today we're going to take a look at the second KDE 4 release candidate, which was made available for download earlier this week.
blog.mozilla.com/faaborg: Firefox 3 will contain roughly 120 icons (190 if you count different sizes) on each of the four platforms. While the icons are styled for each platform, we plan on using consistent metaphors and symbols to ensure that interacting with Firefox feels familiar as users move between platforms.
Gaël Duval: The Ulteo main web server is experiencing a big, big, rush. It’s been under an heavy load for two days, and of course, page loading is sometimes slower than expected… We have performed urgency tasks, such as moving static stuff to other servers, but the rush is really too big.
