Network-Manager-GNOME vs. Wicd Reviewed

Filed under
Software

OSWeekly: Having spent the last few days really examining what Gutsy has to offer on the wireless front, I have been content with improvements made to the network-manager for GNOME. Having thoroughly tested my RT2500 and RT61 Ralink wireless cards, I was impressed with the new wireless stack and network-manager's ability to handle the wireless cards with zero hassle.

Startup times

Filed under
OS

distrogue.blogspot: Something weird just happened. I'm at school, and a lot of the laptops we use run Vista. So, I took the opportunity to clock how long it takes Vista to start up versus Linux.

A look at KDE 4 RC1

Filed under
KDE

blogbeebe: I pulled down the latest KDE 4 RC1 ISO (0.7.1), burned a copy, and went around the house trying to boot it. Turns out it won't boot on old europa, but it did boot on algol (the Gateway M685).

Laptops and Desktops running Linux continue to sell out

Filed under
Linux

dmartin.org: When I decided to buy an Asus Eee I had a hard time finding one. Amazon was sold out. Buy.com was sold out. Many of the smaller websites I found were also sold out, and claimed they would be in stock again on some future date.

Linux Mint 4.0: Ubuntu++

Filed under
Linux

techiemoe.com: I was very impressed with the last version of Linux Mint. There were very few things I didn't like about it, and they mostly dealt with missing packages. I was excited when I heard of the new version to see if any of my beefs had been addressed.

OpenSUSE 10.3: Preliminary thoughts

Filed under
SUSE

iandefor.wordpress: I don’t often try a new distro seriously, but recently I felt the itch and downloaded OpenSUSE 10.3 and installed it on my laptop. The first thing that strikes me is how well-integrated the artwork is. OpenSUSE has a mostly consistent, good-looking theme throughout.

Xfce 4.4.2 released

Filed under
Software

xfce.org: Xfce 4.4.2 is now available. It's the second maintenance release in the 4.4 stable series, focusing on fixing bugs and updating translations.

How to recursively go through all local or remote directories

The Nigerian OLPC Dispute - How Does It Look?

Filed under
OLPC

Groklaw: I thought you might like to see the Lagos Analysis Corp.'s keyboard "patent" allegedly infringed by OLPC. It turns out it's not a patent in the usual sense. It's a design registration. Why does that matter? Because what is registered is the way it *looks*, not the way it *works*.

Nautilus Tip: Gnome File Manager in Browser Mode

Filed under
HowTos

linuxlove.org: Several distributions such as Fedora are shipping Gnome with Nautilus configured in spatial mode. This means that there’s no toolbar, no address bar and worst of all, each folder opens in a new window. A file manager in spatial mode is nothing more than a relic.

Announcing FOSDEM 2008 Keynote and Main Track Speakers

Filed under
OSS

fosdem.org: The list of Main Track speakers for FOSDEM 2008 is almost complete and officially announced today, even though the website doesn't contain all the speaker bios and abstracts yet.

Ubuntu Linux vs Windows Vista: The Desktop Battle

polishlinux: It may be a brave opinion but I predict that Ubuntu Linux and Windows Vista are going to be the two operating systems that will take over the largest chunk of the desktop OS market during the next couple of years. This comparison is based on my experience with both systems during the last couple of weeks on two different computers.

Zonbu: Upping the ante

techrepublic: You might remember me covering Zonbu’s Zonbox recently. The Zonbox was a nice piece of hardware that had its limitations. Zonbu understands that and has come out with another product to raise the bar. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you the Zonbu Notebook. Now naturally I want to put this piece of hardware through the wringer to see if it is worth the $279.00** dollar price tag.

End-of-2007 State of the Union

Filed under
Linux

distrogue.blogspot: 2007. What a year. Ubuntu cranked out two more solid releases, sub-$500 laptops flooded the market, and 3D desktop effects continued to improve. The DistroWatch charts were invaded by Texans, and several new distros appeared on the scene.

CRUX isn’t what I want right now

Filed under
Linux

kmandla.wordpress: After two or three installations and probably as many, if not more, kernel recompilations, I’ve come to the conclusion that CRUX Linux isn’t what I want.

Asus Eee

dmartin.org: I bought a Asus Eee. It's a really nice machine. The interface is simple and easy to use, as best you can expect in such a confined space. The desktop isn't terribly pretty but, it really is a nice device.
