Matt Asay: Oh, my. We're back to the good old days of Microsoft mythology. I had actually believed that Microsoft had grown up and wised up. But no.
Torrent is a great way to transfer large files very quickly. However most torrent clients are gui based and have quite some impact on system resources (e.g. Azureus). rTorrent is a lightweight client running from the terminal.

Serdar Yegulalp: My father recently retired a 1-Ghz AMD (AMD) computer with 1 Gbyte of RAM that he'd built from mail-ordered parts. My first move: Wipe it clean, install Linux, and prepare it for an exercise in "hand-me-down computing."
blog.spocore.com: A long time ago, back when i was still a common windows user, i was very serious in online gaming. In particularly a game called Star Wars Jedi Academy. Now I have long since switched to linux, which of course will not run the game natively.
pcmechanic: I started using Windows back with Windows 3.1. I went through 95, 98, served a brief prison sentence with Windows ME, moved to 2000, then XP, and now Vista. So, I’ve pretty much used them all. The problem is that I am not much of a Linux guy. I was confused by all the myriad of distros out there. There are just TONS of them. How the hell am I supposed to choose a Linux distro?
phoronix: After a very slow summer, NVIDIA has finally rolled out an updated Linux proprietary display driver. The release highlights are quite extensive. For those using Compiz, Beryl, or Compiz Fusion will be pleased to know that there is improved GLX_EXT_texture_from_pixmap out-of-memory handling.
cybernet: When Flock 0.9 launched it was a pretty big overhaul, and now their next big milestone is Flock 1.0 which currently has a vague release date of Fall 2007. Honestly this is the dream browser.

desktoplinux: The One Laptop per Child's XO, better known as the $100 laptop, gets most of the headlines but NComputing is showing in Macedonia, with its Ubuntu Linux based servers and virtual PC terminals, that there's more than one way to get inexpensive Linux desktops into students' hands.
Dana Blankenhorn: IBM’s debut of its homegrown open source version of OpenOffice without e-mail or collaboration features is not surprising but nevertheless disappointing.
scitech.teambio.org: I’ve been experimenting with Ubuntu (Feisty) for about the last two months. In previous posts, I’ve written how pleased I was. Here are my honest observations about my day with Ubuntu at work.
freesoftware mag: Apparently I’ve been living under a rock, because I only recently found out about the Blender project’s free and open source short movie, Elephants Dream.
tectonic: Mandriva Linux today announced a deal with the National Commission for Information Technology (CNTI) in Angola to provide technology solutions, training and consulting services in the African country.
linux.com: A musical notation system for KOffice, a cross-platform kiosk browser, a help system editor for GNOME -- these are just a few of the projects completed in this year's Google Summer of Code (SOC) event, during which Google paid students to work on free and open source software projects. The innovations in this third year appear to have enriched the experience for participants, but not affected the project completion rate.
linux.com: Although the idea of using an application to manage your personal finances makes a lot of sense, not all of us have the time and patience to learn all the intricacies of tools like GnuCash or Money Manager Ex. If that sounds like you, try Buddi, probably the easiest to use personal finance manager out there.
FOSSwire: Jacob took a look at standalone GTK-based password remembering tool GPass recently, and if you’re not on KDE that is a very useful tool. KDE users however have a built in architecture called KWallet.
steelgryphon.com: We’re close to shipping Gran Paradiso Alpha 8, and we have a handful of features that still have yet to see the light of day. These will for the most part come into the M9 release, but as we were technically feature frozen we’re going to declare them up front as exceptions.
vertito.blogspot: Nero Linux is a flexible application, which supports all important features of Nero Burning ROM on Linux Systems. For die-hard Nero burning software fans, Nero burning software also comes in Linux.
synergymx.com: In this latest preview release of Lighting for Thunderbird the UI has been overhauled extensively. The three column layout is not part of the build. In the past the UI was just two columns, with the calendar covering up valuable email folder real estate with calendar stuff. This has been rethought and now the calendar is in its own column on the right - much like Outlook 2007.

c|net: Them's fightin' words! That was my reaction when later last night I got the official Microsoft comment on my story about the Mozilla Foundation pumping new energy and funding into development of the Thunderbird e-mail software.
