sheehantu: In my last post I mentioned why I chose Ubuntu over Windows. I stand by my comments, however I would like to shed some light where Ubuntu and Linux need a little work:
Moving to Freedom: When I wrote about using Brasero for CD burning in GNOME a few months ago, I realized that the KDE app K3b was out there and probably pretty good. I also figured I’d want to try K3b soon enough when I needed more options and flexibility. Well it didn’t take many burning jobs to get there.
dot.kde.org: The long-anticipated Education Day at aKademy 2007 opened at 9 am on Monday, 3rd July with an introduction by Anne-Marie Mahfouf, maintainer of the KDE-Edu suite of educational applications.
kernelTRAP: The biggest user-visible change in -v19 is reworked sleeper fairness: it's similar in behavior to -v18 but works more consistently across nice levels. Fork-happy workloads (like kernel builds) should behave better as well.
phoronix: Zenwalk Live has been updated against Zenwalk Linux 4.6 and this LiveCD distribution now features Xfce 4.4.1 with notification support, the Xfce Thunar file manager can now handle video thumbnails, and many new Xfce 4.4 panel plug-ins have been added or updated.
nixcraft: Over the last few years concept of desktop organizer software applications becomes quite popular. Gimmie is a unique desktop organizer for Linux. It’s designed to allow easy interaction with all the applications, contacts, documents and other things you use every day.
mozilla links: Now you can enjoy the super classic video game within your favorite browser. Xultris is a Firefox extension developed by mackers that brings Tetris addiction to your favorite browser.
the dot: Intel and Novell have each become corporate Patrons of KDE. Their exceptional financial commitment to the KDE e.V. helps the project with community events, infrastructure and developer meetings.
daniweb: Hot on the heels of JavaFX, taking on the likes of Microsoft Silverlight and Adobe Flash, Sun looks set to formally unveil its plans for Project Indiana this week and attack the Linux developer heartlands.
LWN: The 18.104.22.168 and 22.214.171.124 stable kernels have been released; each contains a single fix for a security problem in the netfilter H323 connection tracking code.
telegram.com: The group of 10- to 14-year-olds was busy installing and configuring the Linux operating system on computers they had finished building.
microsoft-watch: I've delayed more than a day blogging about Microsoft's GPLv3 assertions, for my loss of words. Microsoft just claimed the world is flat and expects you to believe it.
/home/liquidat: The OpenSuse Build Service is capable of creating package repositories for various distributions. Although it is different to the Fedora build system it shows an interesting alternative to the “build here only” attempt most distributions have today.
freesoftware mag: Despite jeering at Windows for the infamous system freezes and blue screens of death, there are and will be times when your Linux computer just locks up: the cursor is frozen and even invoking a console by Ctrl + Alt + [F2, F3, ...] to close down the X windows session running on F7 is non-functional.
One of the things i like most about (gnu/?) linux, other than everything, is how you can get it to do things you never knew you wanted… and that’s what i’m all about, i like to dig down the stuff that creates the WOW-effect, even if it has little or no purpose at all. Being able to convert 8 friends so far, makes me certain that these things really do work on a psychological level.
tech.blorge: Canonical and Dell have recently decided to offer a subset of Dell desktop computers and laptops pre-installed with Ubuntu Linux. Many, however, say that Linux is just not ready for the end user market because of its complexity.
polishlinux: Polish Ministry of Internal Affairs, responsible for National Computerization project is currently working on National Interoperability Framework. The framework more or less follows the general ideas of the European document, but there are major differences, especially concerning the key issue for the FLOSS community — the attitude to open-source software.
Penguin Pete: I almost fell out of my chair... and it's a recliner. Slashdot AGAIN posted what is becoming one of the greatest cliched titles since "Netcraft confirms it...": Have another look at The Year of Linux on the Desktop. Now I know what the movie "Groundhog Day" was about. But like it or not, there are some people who will NEVER adopt Linux, no matter what.
ZDNet: Linux (and open source software in general) has been occupying quite a bit of my attention. I’m still a Windows user, too (at least at school and on the networks I run), so what’s the deal? Because I believe that a fundamental shift is occurring in education, among young people, and ultimately in the industry at large.
LinuxToday: It seems, for now, that the plan to negate the threat of Microsoft's patent protection plan with certain Linux partners has succeeded. The statements made by Microsoft disavowing any notion that they will fall under the new version of the GNU General Public License (GPLv3) seems to confirm that.
