linux.com: The OSI License-Discuss mailing list has been ablaze for the past few days since Microsoft submitted its Permissive License (MS-PL) to the OSI [Open Source Initiative] for official open source license approval. Chuck Swiger, an active member of the license-discuss community, thinks that lets the GPL out of the mix.
Linux Journal: At last we reach the final installment of this series, the question & answer stage in which we'll consider some of the common problems encountered with audio and MIDI on Linux, along with some common and perhaps not-so-common solutions to those problems. We've looked at some indispensable items for your Linux system troubleshooting toolkit, now let's see how they are applied.
Penguin Pete: Yes, you read the title correctly. I only run FOSS systems, including GNU/Linux, BSD, Open Solaris, Minix, GNU/HURD, and Plan Nine From Bell Labs. I'll even give a favorable nod to Apple hardware if I see it running FOSS software. But I am adamantly opposed to running a single byte of Microsoft code under my roof or associated with my business. Yet, I don't hate them.
Matt Asay: IBM trumpets open standards so much that it's easy to forget the company cares deeply about open source, too. I much prefer this latter emphasis, incidentally, because IBM is so good at playing the "open" standards game - it's much harder to game an open-source license.
The Linux Movement: In my last post I made a quick little video of some of the New applets being developed for Awn. But there was one I couldn't get to work at the time, and that was the Awn Gnome Main Menu Applet. But Guess what i got it workign now....
dailytech: Dell and Lenovo are the first two companies to recently offer pre-installed open source Linux distribution on PCs and notebooks, but I highly doubt they will be the last manufacturers to take the plunge...
All about Linux: I have faced a number of times the prospect of entering the web address of the online repositories just because I some how tampered the contents of the sources.list file which is residing in /etc/apt/ location.
richardfcrawley.wordpress: This installment will review applications that serve as learning and hobby tools. It will range from beneath the surface of the Earth to orbiting the Earth.
Linux Today: The current debate about whether the open source community should trust Microsoft as the Redmond company continues to make friendlier overtures towards open source practices is, to me, a very interesting discussion.
swik.net: In the short amount of time that Ubuntu has been around (3 years, with 6 releases) it has attained an impressive level of popularity and growth. I believe this success is due to some critical improvements that Ubuntu has implemented when compared to other Linux distributions.
freesoftware mag: Few events have created more fodder for the blogosphere, more fuel for Microsoft critics and more emotional responses than the Microsoft patent deals with Novell, Linspire and Xandros. While putting together a list of things people hate about these deals is easy, generating a list of positive aspects is much harder.
matt hartley blog: I have written a set of scripts that will allow you to backup both your Evolution and Firefox data, allow for flawless transfer to a new Ubuntu box without any hassles, keeps everything in one set of ‘master folders’, makes recovery a snap, cleans up after itself and did I mention it is completely brainlessly simple to use?
ubuntu blog: I was looking for a replacement for SecureCRT in Ubuntu. Something that would let me save all my SSH connections and make it possible to open a connection with the least effort.
joshgerdes.com: I successfully got Ubuntu 7.04 working with mouse support in Microsoft Virtual PC 2007 and I thought I should share my findings. This is a combination of instructions I found while searching on the Internet. I thought it might be helpful and I wanted to make a note of it on my site for reference.
arstechnica: The latest Firefox 3 nightly build includes user interfaces elements of the new bookmarking system, complete with tagging support.
People Behind KDE releases the second of in its series of four interviews with students who are working on KDE as part of the Google Summer of Code 2007 - meet Bertjan Broeksema, Carlos Licea, Pierre Ducroquet and Gavin Beatty!
The Linux Movement: I have configured Awn-extras to get see what was goign on with new applets. Basicly if you configure it you get two new applets:
linux.com: Finding an addictive computer game on a Friday evening can be dangerous. Instead of doing things you have been promising your wife, you spend the weekend in front of your computer playing the game and trying to explain that "this is for work." This is exactly what happened to me when I discovered Battle Tanks.
tomdryer.com: It was time for a new computer for my Grandparents. Their ancient Windows 98 PC had become so slow that it was unusable. The replacement, an inexpensive Acer PC, came with Windows Vista preinstalled. It was up to me to set up the new computer and support it. So I decided to wipe out Vista with a Debian 4 base install and set up an easy to use environment for my Grandparents.
