yalb: Today, I’d like to share a tip I found out while working with a beta release for a distribution of Linux with KDE’s 3.5.7 version. So let’s take a look at how you can force KDE to run at the correct DPI for your monitor which will, in turn, make your fonts look MUCH better.
ruminations: One application that always finds its way to my desktop is Apache-MySQL-PHP in one of its incarnations. MAMP for Mac OSX, XAMPP for Windows XP and my portable USB drive and LAMP for my Ubuntu box. In the latter case -and on *BSD- it shouldn’t be necessary to work with an *AMP package. Installing the various component via the software repositories or packages is a matter of entering the proper commands.
ittoolbox blogs: In terms of updating and upgrading your operating system and all other installed programs Linux (and BSD) would have to be about the best thing since sliced bread. Sometimes for unknown reasons or known reasons the packages fail.
blog of Gentoo: For the last couple of days I've been reading about the so called Death of the Linux Desktop. What I cannot understand is, how so Linux desktop can be dead if it never existed?
This document describes how to set up Xen on Fedora 7. Xen enables the paravirtualization of your hardware for its virtual machines if you have a CPU with Vanderpool (Intel) or Pacifica (AMD) technology.
eWeek: At least 80 percent of all commercial software products will include elements of open-source code by 2010, according to Mark Driver, vice president of research at Gartner. IT organizations will have to manage open-source software along with commercial software.
infoworld blogs: As a professional journalist for over 20 years, I’ve taken my share of below-the-belt hits and personal attacks. After all, when you write about a topic – OS design and implementation – that’s near and dear to so many, you’re bound to bring out the zealots from time to time. However, nothing prepared me for the degree of vitriol hurled my way by the true believers in the Linux community.
tectonic: Getting longer battery life out laptop PCs is the holy grail of mobile computing. Powertop is a Linux tool to eek out those precious minutes of battery life by eliminating unnecessary power wasting processes.
linux.com: No matter whether you are working on an article, an academic paper, or a novel, research is a crucial part of the writing process. And as with any research, you need a place to save your notes, ideas, relevant links, and text snippets. While there are tools like Basket Note Pads and the Zotero Firefox extension, wouldn't it be nice if you could store and manage your stuff directly from within OpenOffice.org?
blogbeebe: I'm no friend of Pamela Jones, owner and proprietress of Groklaw. From time to time over the years I've stumbled upon the odd post and thread that, for whatever reason, would disappear over time, expunged by She Who Must Be Obeyed.
networkworld: Reacting to what must be nothing short of unbridled envy at the recent uptick in the fortunes of other Linux distros such as SLED and Ubuntu, M. Spevack is asking why Red RHAT’s version wasn’t chosen instead in surveys taken by the hardware manufacturers Dell and Lenovo.
OSWeekly: Many of you may not realize this if you are new to the Linux world, but there are other browsers out there beside Firefox. It's a powerful browser, yet with it becoming more and more popular, exploits are sure to begin turning up. Today, we will be looking at alternative browsers that are for Linux only.
computerworld: If the One Laptop Project keeps its promises, the small green US$100 laptop could very well revolutionise teaching in developing nations. Computerworld Denmark asked Jan Soelberg, an expert from the school of education at the University of Aarhus, to try the computer.

OSWeekly: In the last hour, I have read two completely different articles on Windows users, why they use Windows and how Linux could prevent further piracy. Each piece had its merits, but I still believe that most Linux users simply do not get what Windows users are looking for in an OS.
DPofD: GPRename has been around since 2001, is quite stable and still very much alive today. At the start of 2007, it was ported from the deprecated GTK-Perl to the new GTK2-Perl and in mid 2007 the new 2.4 release is now GPL-3.
kernelTRAP: "Ahoy me laddies (and beauties)," Linux creator Linus Torvalds began, announcing the seventh release candidate for the upcoming 2.6.23 kernel, "time for the traditional 'Talk Like a Pirate Day' kernel release!"

sfgate.com: Attorneys asked prospective Alameda County jurors in the murder trial of computer programmer Hans Reiser today whether they were comfortable hearing a circumstantial-evidence case in which the body of Reiser's alleged victim - his wife - has never been found.
The Guardian: Firefox, the browser that dared to challenge the supremacy of Microsoft's Internet Explorer, now claims a market share of nearly 20% in the UK and 30% in Germany. All of which makes it scandalous that the open source movement has not taken off in the UK as it has in other countries.
