Serdar Yegulalp: Since this blog does get filed under the category Open Source, I thought I'd take time out here and there to talk about some of my favorite open-source applications, not just Linux (or OSes in general). I'll start with an app that has breathed unexpected new life into some of my DVDs: MPlayer.
review linux: Linux Mint 4.0 Beta 021 was released on October 26 2007. Like their tagline; slogan; campaign speech says, Linux Mint is really an "elegant" distribution. I had no issues at all installing Linux Mint 4 Beta on my innotek VirtualBox.
kernelTRAP: A recent report on the lkml suggested improved IO/writeback performance in the recently released 2.6.24-rc1 kernel compared to the earlier 22.214.171.124 and 126.96.36.199 kernels. Credit was given to some patches by Peter Zijlstra. Ingo Molnar replied, "wow, really nice results! "
Ivan Čukić: Well, not exactly, but now you can get the general idea, and you can see what it will look like. This is an actual screenshot, not a mock up. Extender Button is the base of the no-click concept interface.
arstechnica: Ubuntu founder Mark Shuttleworth kicked off FOSSCamp this morning with some introductory remarks. The goal of FOSSCamp, he says, is to get those involved with open source projects together to collaborate and share ideas.

kmandla.wordpress: This is kind of a weird problem with a lot of different solutions. Usually it’s a trick to shut down the computer from the right-click menu in Openbox if you’re using a privileged user account, not a root account. There are a couple of ways around that.
zerias.blogspot: Recently there has been an article floating around touting that Windows is selling better than Linux. Now, there are a multitude of ways to discredit an article these days. The fact is, the majority of Linux's growth as an operating system has come at the hands of grass roots activists.
Telegraph: A couple of weeks ago, we featured the Sony Vaio TZ21 range of ultra-portable notebooks. But what about those people who already have a desktop computer, or perhaps a chunky but reliable laptop that works perfectly well at home but causes hernias and sciatica when it's taken on the road?
phoronix: This past weekend my uncle had computer problems again, yes the one that was ripped off by the geek squad before. He knew I was in town just for a party and going back. He did not want to tell me that his computer was messed up again but I knew it after looking at his face. I said I would stop by and fix it.
Having recently encountered problems upgrading from Ubuntu 7.04 to 7.10 I decided to do a clean install. I opted to install the AMD 64 bit version of Ubuntu.

Reuters: Business software maker Novell Inc laid off 250 workers in the United States as part of an ongoing restructuring program to slash costs, company spokesman Bruce Lowry said on Friday.
Linux Today: Today I read an article that so completely blew my mind in its audacity. The article in question is actually the final part of a five-part series of blog entries on InfoWorld, entitled "Why Ubuntu (Still) Sucks." I read Kennedy's final piece in the series, and realized that some of us, myself included, were suckers in a game designed to make Linux advocates look foolish.
enterpriselinuxlog.blogs: The OpenDocument file format isn’t really something we cover a lot here, but from time to time I like to check in on it for no other reason than Simon Phipps from Sun Microsystems said a “Digital Dark Age” would descend upon us all if we didn’t get the world to adopt it. It’s also all about open standards, which for a guy who covers Linux and open source is a Siren’s Song.
penguin pete: Now that I've gotten all the fussing about the wrong-headed design changes last time, it's time to talk about the good news: the new features. There is no merely discussing this as "an upgrade". This is basically a reinvention of the Gimp as we knew it. Keep your hat on, as there is just too much to talk about to proceed through in any kind of orderly fashion.
odysseus.wordpress: As you all know, I am a HUGE PCLOS fan. It is my distro of choice. However, with Dell selling systems with Ubuntu pre-installed, I know I will be getting some calls about what to do. So, I figured I would install Ubuntu and see what I can figure out.
tech.blorge.com: Our little Penguin is getting dissed from a very unlikely source, InfoWorld. Randall Kennedy (InfoWorld) casts his pearls of misguided wisdom in his 5-part series "Why Ubuntu (Still) Sucks." Frankly, I am shocked that anyone can honestly and professionally write about something that they are so uninformed about. Whatever happened to "write what you know?"
desktoplinux: AMD and ATI weren't fibbing. The graphics company, now part of Advanced Micro Devices, has released high-end Catalyst 7.10 graphics drivers for the Linux desktop.
MaximumPC: The way the Linux world has been heating up this year, it was hard not to feel a pang of excitement over the release of the latest openSUSE. Well, it’s been a couple of weeks now, and I’ve given it the old college try, but I just can’t maintain any enthusiasm for this lackluster distro update.
