phoronix: On the review bench today we have the GA-P31-DS3L from Gigabyte. This P31 motherboard supports Intel's Core 2 45nm processors, DDR2-1066 memory, all-solid capacitors, and many of the other innovations found on the GA-P35-DS3S. Nevertheless, is the GA-P31-DS3L that currently sells for about $75 USD able to perform well under Linux like the GA-P35-DS3S?
opensuse news: openSUSE 10.3 will see the first small parts of KDE 4 creeping into the distribution. KDE 3 will still be the default KDE session for openSUSE 10.3, but KDE 4 will be making its way in steadily. Today we will see what exactly is new in openSUSE 10.3’s KDE 4 applications and we’ll also be talking to Dirk Müller, a long-time openSUSE and KDE core developer.
pclinuxos2007.blogspot: I have been looking for official PCLinuxOS Gnome version since 2005. Thanks God it’s now in the making. I came across a Gnome remaster of PCLinuxOS 2007 at www.linuxgator.org
linux.com: The Journaled File System (JFS) is a little-known filesystem open sourced by IBM in 1999 and available in the Linux kernel sources since 2002. To learn more about JFS, I installed it as my root filesystem. I found it to be a worthy alternative to the bigger names.
techlogg.com: The push for an open-source operating system is hardly newsworthy stuff, after all, Linux has been championing the idea for years. The only problem is that Linux is no Windows replacement. And that’s what ReactOS is aiming to do.
kernelTRAP: "In the patch you really remove _a_lot_ of stuff," commented Roman Zippel in his reaction to Ingo Molnar's latest updates to the Completely Fair Scheduler.
ruminations: For the larger part of the last 12 months I have been using Ubuntu and the GNOME desktop. Now it’s time to take a closer look at the KDE desktop and really use the applications that were designed for it.
the register: If you have anything at all to do with open source software, you'll want to listen to Episode 2 of Open Season because there's a good chance we said something good or bad about you.

dvd-guides.com: The Arch Linux project was started by Judd Vinet in his attempt to create his own ideal distribution. He wanted to make a lightweight and simple system aimed at power users. I believe that Arch is an excellent flavor of Linux that hasn't got the share of publicity and attention if deserves from the community yet.
linuxseekers.com: Sidux 2007-03 is a Sid-based Live CD. For those who need a "more-friendly" and more stable Debian sid, then Sidux is for you. I think Sidux would also appeal to those users who prefer a rolling-release type of Linux distro, so that they don't have to reinstall the resident Linux distro whenever the "hot cake" arrives every 4 to 6 months.
rare-it.com/blog: My PC died two days ago. I bought new hardware. Today I assembled the whole shebang. Not knowing what to expect when powering up the system, I could never have guessed I was in for a very very pleasant surprise.

kernelTRAP: "It turns out that USB devices suck when it comes to powermanagement issues :(" lamented Greg KH in posting some patches to handle USB autosuspend problems.
vnunet: Canonical has stated that its Ubuntu Server needs increased support from independent software vendors and system builders. Increased vendor support could boost Ubuntu's overall credibility. Oracle's support for Linux in 1998 is considered a watershed moment in the history of the open source operating system.
computerworld: The SCO Group Inc. will begin its latest legal battle Monday over what it continues to assert are its rights to Unix -- but this battle is one the company may have never imagined it would be fighting.
the register: Downloads of Bastille Linux have always been offered through SourceForge, with Bastille-linux.org serving more as a store-front than as a primary download location. The change of ownership of the site came to light only after duty staff at the Internet Storm Centre followed up a tip that something was amiss.
crn.com: Max Spevack is the Fedora Project leader for Linux distributor Red Hat, and he has some observations to make about recent surveys by Lenovo and Dell.
b-eye-network.com: Building a commercial software product may be like putting together a major motion picture, but getting any software project done will have similarities to TV/film productions. The number one attribute of any successful project is having a project vision. The driving force behind any project has to be a vision of what the finished product will look like.
