rudd-o: Don’t you hate it when you leave a shell open and you can’t unmount a disk volume because the shell has a firm grip on a directory in that disk? Well, there’s a solution.
masuran.org: I recently got into a discussion with some OOXML backers about whether or not OOXML can/should be made an ISO standard. To support my argument that the OOXML specification can't be fixed with a BRM, I've decided to compare the comments that were addressed at the ODF BRM and the ones that will have to be addressed at the OOXML BRM.
linux.com: If you want the old-time GNU/Linux experience, try configuring a Web camera. Unlike most peripherals, webcams are generally not configured during installation. Moreover, where printers have the Common Unix Printing System (CUPS) and its interfaces, with webcams you are generally thrown back on whatever resources you can find on the Internet and your own knowledge of kernel modules and drivers.
OSWeekly: In order for Automatix to be as hated as it has become by a select few, we need to first examine the reasons why the application is allegedly being targeted with such harsh words. With this article, we will closely examine why.
arstechnica: Opera has always defied conventional wisdom: in the past, the company was able to survive by selling web browsers when Microsoft and Netscape were giving them away.

zdnet: I finally had a chance to meet with our new librarian today. After being without an actual librarian for so long, it was incredibly cool to talk with someone who knew something more about academic research than how to Google. And best of all, she said, “I’m not afraid of learning new things. Why don’t you set up a server with one of the open source systems and I’ll give it a shot.”

linux.com: One of the things Red Hat CEO Matthew Szulik loses sleep over is the digital divide, especially when it comes to children. He wanted to do something about the disparity in the availability of computing resources and skills between social classes, so he set aside corporate funds to create Red Hat High, a week-long technology summer camp for eighth- and ninth-grade students.
linux-watch: When the news broke about it being impossible to use Linux as a screen name on the Xbox 360 it sounded like such a Microsoft thing to do. Alas, the real reason why you can't use Linux as a screen name is much more mundane.

adamw: We pushed 2008 RC1 today. There’s been a ton of bug fixing since Beta 2, so this should be quite a lot better. Cooker has been very busy lately: a couple of major changes have happened.

cybernet: OpenOffice.org 2.3 is on the home stretch with the first Release Candidate being made available today. It’s been over 5-months since OpenOffice.org 2.2 was released, and I’m sure most users will be welcoming this update with open arms.
