Matt Hartley: It has long since been my own personal experience that Linux documentation is largely ignored by Linux beginners in exchange for the interactivity of Linux forums. Distro Documentation is Generally Good, But… One distribution that comes to mind when thinking about great documentation is Ubuntu.
computerworld: This article is reprinted from The Official Ubuntu Book, 2nd Edition, by Benjamin Mako Hill and Jono Bacon, with permission of publisher Prentice Hall Professional. While instructions are specific for Ubuntu Linux, most commands will work with other Linux distributions.
astralsin.com: One of the things I love best about Linux is package management. From Debian’s apt to Gentoo’s Portage, I’m gonna take a quick rundown of the most popular package management mechanisms and go over the pros and cons of each.
consortiuminfo.org: With the polls now closed and the early results in (some public, some not), think it's time to predict with assurance that ISO will announce tomorrow that ISO/IEC DIS 29500, the draft specification based upon Microsoft’s Office Open XML formats, has failed to achieve enough yes votes to gain approval at this time.
Aaron Seigo: while at my sister's place a couple weeks back my brother-in-law, mark, asked about linux and if we could install it on his system. at first i thought, "oh man. i'm supposed to be here enjoying myself, i don't know if i want to have to support someone through the process of switching to linux ...." and then i caught myself. i mean, this is 2007 not 1997. if we can't make it now, when can we?
iTWire: Since 2005, a small band of volunteers in many countries has been gathering together on one day of the year to give away free and open source software in order to spread awareness about this genre.
polishlinux: In this article we’d like to present the basic concepts needed to navigate the console world. We are going to find out what a shell is all about, what is a terminal, and what the famous console is actually for.
kdedevelopers: Did anyone miss a news splash these days about openSUSE 10.3 not shipping KDE 4.0 as default KDE desktop like some other distro? Or maybe not as we have not been telling everyone the last half year that we would.
kernelTRAP: Ingo Molnar reviewed Roman Zippel's Really Fair Scheduler code, suggesting that much of the work was similar to that which was being done by Peter Zijlstra, "all in one, we don't disagree, this is an incremental improvement we are thinking about for 2.6.24. We do disagree with this being positioned as something fundamentally different though.
raiden's blogs: One of the things that's been repeated over and over and over again, and mostly by critics of Linux, is that Linux has too many distributions. Honestly, that's not really true.
liquidat: The newest version now features seamless integration of Microsoft Windows guests. That means that you can use MS Windows programs outside of the virtual machine window. They appear just as any other window at the screen.
jem report: Recently a Linux kernel developer tried to relicense an OpenBSD network driver under the GPL, but was caught early in the process and the error was properly addressed with public rebuke. In an unrelated incident, the vice president of the FreeBSD Foundation reiterated that open source software as originally and traditionally exemplified through BSD operating systems, and free software as presented by the Free Software Foundation, are not the same thing.
webdotdev.com: This paper starts with a discussion of the architectural features of the Linux kernel, with particular emphasis on showing where there is a good match with the requirements of the embedded market and where problems exist. The paper then goes on the present a comparison of the different approaches that have been used to adapt Linux for real time and embedded systems.
opensourcelearning.info: Recently I have been thinking about my online security. It lead me on a brief search for portable applications which at least give me the feeling that I am more secure that I am now.
