paul murphy: Once upon a time, neither long ago nor far way, repeated server crashes caused a client’s IT management to replace about 40 x86 Linux servers with nice reliable Windows products. Why?
linux.com: I spent a couple of days testing OOo Calc and Microsoft Excel features for formatting, list-making, formulas, and formula tools. Since the range of user expertise in spreadsheets tends to be much wider than in slide shows or even word processors, I considered the programs largely from the perspective of an average user who might require a spreadsheet for home or business use.
polishlinux: Here is another article of our “GIMP tricks” series. This time you are going to learn a simple trick: how to make your teeth look really white on a photograph. By the way, perhaps it’s the right time to visit a dentist?
This is a detailed description about how to set up a Mandriva 2008 Free (Mandriva 2008.0) server that offers all services needed by ISPs and hosters: Apache web server (SSL-capable), Postfix mail server with SMTP-AUTH and TLS, BIND DNS server, Proftpd FTP server, MySQL server, Courier POP3/IMAP, Quota, Firewall, etc.

kernelTRAP: "As far as my testsystem goes, v2.6.23 beats v18.104.22.168 in sysbench," explained Ingo Molnar in response to a posting showing the opposite results. As you can see it in the graph, v2.6.23 schedules much more consistently too."
pcworld blogs: I was somewhat amused to read Michael Gartenberg's comments that Linux is still not ready for the desktop. Please don't tell that to any of the people who last year logged in 40,000 times to the 28 Linux computers at our small town library and community center in Takoma Park, Maryland.
lawtech.wordpress: As I mentioned in a previous post, I do not believe Linux is ready yet for the desktop in the solo or small firm, no matter how much I may want to see that happen. The one exception I made was with servers.
Geek Pit: Debian Administration has an article up about the usefulness of firewalls. Are they really necessary? If you consider a firewall as just a non-stateful, layer-3 packet filter, then I would agree they are not very useful. However,
TuxDeluxe: Since increasing numbers of Windows users have deserted their roots and infiltrated the citadel, Linux users have changed their expectations. We need an intuitive interface and a multitude of choices - Gnome or KDE, which do you prefer?
matt hartley: For those of you who have used it, you'll know that Debian is a solid distribution of Linux. Like Fedora or OpenSuSe, it was developed with all users in mind. Unfortunately, what many of the geekier users to this day fail to wrap their minds around is that this "Windows thinking" they complain about is more or less about ease of use, versus "choice." And I believe that this is why Ubuntu is, more than other Debian distributions, out-performing Debian proper.

guardian.co.uk: Matt Mullenweg, the 23-year-old who is the founding developer of the open source blogging software WordPress, woke up in March to find that disaster had struck.

tgdaily: Ubuntu is quickly becoming one of the most popular Linux distributions. Its current release is version 7.04, entitled Feisty Fawn. The next version will be 7.10, dubbed Gutsy Gibbon.
fsm: Compiz Fusion has little or no documentation. The little that exists is meant for hardcore geeks who are expected to know what obscure and unintuitive commands like “git” are. Therefore, this guide was created as a sort of all-in-one guide for all users of the major Ubuntu distributions and the major video cards.
linux-watch: Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer has once more claimed that Linux and open source violates Microsoft's intellectual property and patents. Canonical's CEO Mark Shuttleworth thinks Ballmer has it all wrong.
itmanagement.earthweb: The competition for market share between the leading desktop OSes, Windows, Mac and Linux, has seen no major revolution this year. But based on data from Net Applications, there have been subtle changes that suggest major shifts in the years ahead.
adamw: This is for anyone getting NOKEY errors trying to install packages from the online repositories for Mandriva Linux 2008.
zdnet blogs: Another update of the Linux kernel slipped out this week with a new process scheduler, virtualization options and a wee bit of controversy to boot. Linux 2.6.23, which was released October 9, incorporates a new process scheduler called the Completely Fair Scheduler.
Tom Albers's blog: Last week I installed Mandriva Spring edition. This week version 2008 was officially released. Yesterday I updated my system to 2008, but that left my computer in a bad shape. The new kernel paniced while trying to unpack the initrd. Very strange things. In the end I decided to simply download the One cd and see if that one would run.
PCPro: Linspire is seeking to overturn the image of Linux being a difficult proposition for new users by bundling its latest operating system with a whole range of proprietary drivers, codecs and software.
