gnuski.blogspot: KDE has its own Window Manager (WM) named KWin. KWin is great! It remembers your window sizes and placements, so that when you open those applications in the future, they're right where you left them.
linuxworld: The management of video hardware has long been an area of weakness in the Linux system (and free operating systems in general). The X Window System tends to get a lot of the blame for problems in this area, but the truth of the matter is that the problems are more widespread and the kernel has never made it easy for X to do this job properly.
Acrh Linux is lean, wicked and it allows all types to possibilities. It allows the user to custom tailor the distribution as per his/her taste. It has a great package manager. A package manager that is being used by lot of other distributions like frugalware, archie and faun.
linux.com: While it's unclear what Maka stands for, the "giga" part of Makagiga most likely refers to the number of tools this application has on offer. It comes with a to-do manager, RSS reader, a basic photo viewer/editor, a text editor, miscellaneous widgets, and much more. Makagiga is written in Java, so it runs on any platform with Java Runtime Environment.
OSWeekly: I hear this too often - Windows is easier to use than Linux. And so in light of this, being as I have used both operating systems for years, I thought I would put this to the test, the results are not going to make Windows users feel too good about this desktop choice overall, I'm afraid.
tectonic: Tired of the regulation grey bars at the top and bottom of your Gnome desktop and hankering after something a little cooler? Say something a little bit more like the dock in Apple's OSX? Then give AWN a run and get all the bouncing icons you can handle.
arstechnica: The Asus Eee PC challenges many conventional assumptions about mobile computing. The daring, diminutive device combines a svelte subnotebook form factor with a unique Linux software platform and a budget-friendly price—factors that could make this unprecedented product a mainstream marvel.

abhay-techzone.blogspot: Today I was downloading Ubuntu 7.10 desktop i386 iso and came across an interesting fact. I was using kTorrent and was delighted to see more than 1400 seeders and around 150 leechers. There were seeders from many countries.
Serdar Yegulalp: Back when Everex's Linux-based "Green PC" hit stores courtesy of Wal-Mart, I wasn't all that excited about it -- I saw it as being an also-ran to a much more exciting product, the Asus Eee subnotebook (also Linux-based). That said, the gPC is apparently selling like mad -- and now I think I see why: it's the Linux version of the Mac Mini, sort of.
linuxdevices: DingCheng Electronics has announced a GPS-enabled PC that fits "double DIN" stereo bays. The CarPC 102 has a 4x45W amp, and runs Red Flag Linux or Windows on a 1.1GHz Pentium M processor.
