iTWire blogs: In nearly 10 years of experimenting with, and, later, using Linux, I have never been presented with a situation where someone actually asked me to preside over their initial foray into the use of the open source operating system on a regular basis.
Dana Blankenhorn: Consensus by Rick VoermanLast week I wrote about transparency as an open source value. Today, in the second of this informal series, I want to discuss the value called consensus.
tombuntu: Want to compare your computer’s performance? HardInfo is a system profiler and benchmark for Linux systems. It can gather information about your computer and operating system, perform a varitety of benchmarks, and export the data to HTML.
gregdek.livejournal: If you've been interested in working on OLPC, but have no idea how to get started, consider becoming a tester of activities. Check out the Activity Testing Matrix.

linux magazine: No doubt you've heard the prediction before — "this is going to be the year of the Linux desktop." At the risk of being repetitive, though, I'm going to go ahead and say it: 2008 really could be the year of the Linux desktop.
techtarget.com: Early testing has shown that Ubuntu, when run as a virtual guest taking advantage of the new paravirt-ops paravirtualization interface, delivers as promised: it runs faster and more efficiently that it would as an unmodified guest.
linuxworld: Oracle Wednesday said that 1,500 companies have signed up for its Unbreakable Linux discount support program since it was announced one year ago
linux-watch: Ubuntu is extremely popular on the desktop, but it's made comparatively little progress on servers. That's about to change. Dell is expected to announce in the first quarter of 2008 that it has certified Ubuntu Linux for its server lines.
infosyncworld.com: We finally get a close look at the One Laptop Per Child XO laptop, and though nobody could explain the interface, the hardware was pretty cool.
kernelTRAP: "Ceph is a distributed network file system designed to provide excellent performance, reliability, and scalability with POSIX semantics. I periodically see frustration on this list with the lack of a scalable GPL distributed file system with sufficiently robust replication and failure recovery to run on commodity hardware, and would like to think that--with a little love--Ceph could fill that gap."
Debian Administration: User management and the related cryptographic authentication infrastructure is a major hurdle in deploying scalable, manageable VPNs (Virtual Private Networks). Two major pieces of FOSS (Free and Open Source Software) for VPNs are OpenSWAN and OpenVPN.
LinuxInsider: When it comes time to upgrade to a new version of proprietary software -- take the Windows OS, for example -- many users are less than thrilled. Upgrades can mean an added expense for anything more extensive than a bug fix or minor feature upgrades.
gnuski.blogspot: Yesterday we looked at the basic "Keep Above" and "Keep Below" options within KWin. Today lets get a bit more technical -- permanent identification. When you right-click on that title bar and select Advanced, you get the options:
linux.com: You can think of Kile as an IDE for the LaTeX document layout system. Instead of requiring you to learn a considerable amount of markup language, as LaTeX itself does, or providing you with a graphical interface that hides you from the complexity, as Lyx does, Kile automates the process of working with LaTeX while keeping the markup visible.
beans.seartipy.com: There were some excellent suggestions about very good blog editors for the GNU/Linux platform provided in the comments section of my previous post Five Desktop Blog Editors for GNU/Linux Users. So much so that I have decided to compile a second list.
iTWire: Just as as I was getting comfortable using Ubuntu on my desktop, enthusiastic readers have assailed me with stories about how I should give other Linux distros a try - particularly the KDE pair PCLinuxOS and SimplyMEPIS. I'm lucky to have four different computers at my immediate disposal so I tried the live CDs of the three distros on three of them to see how plug and play they were for wireless networking. The results were quite surprising.
Paul Murphy: It appears that the big changes in the server version focus on ease of use, particularly with respect to network setup, and on getting along in a predominantly Windows environment. When you compare MacOS X server to Linux, however, the key advantage for small businesses isn’t capital cost, it’s ease of setup and use.
This tutorial shows how you can enable Compiz Fusion on a Fedora 8 GNOME desktop.
