smspillaz.wordpress: So, being bored as I usually am, I decided to fix my installation of KDE 4 and try out KWin 4 with Composite bling. Unfortunately, after beta 2, it appeared that openGL based desktop Compositing broke for most people but I managed to get XRender output working.
iTWire: One of the most curious things about Linux distributions is the markedly different way in which one or the other behaves when it comes to installation. This has been brought home to me over the past week as I've been trying to get a Fedora Core installation sorted out.

Fabrice Facorat: Since I upgrade my auth and file server from 2007.0 to 2008.0, I noticed severals issues with my NFS server. Indeed, at one time, my client will just hang when accessing the NFS server.
roy's: OK, a few people have been saying that Gentoo is falling apart, they will leave Gentoo too and the world will end as we know it. I can assure you that this is all lies.
phoronix: Back in March we had compared the performance of Ubuntu and Fedora as we tested Ubuntu 6.10 and Fedora 6 along with development versions of Ubuntu 7.04 and Fedora 7. During those benchmarks, Ubuntu 7.04 Alpha 5 had a slight lead over Fedora but the race was extremely close. Now with the release of Fedora 8 last week, we have run a new set of benchmarks comparing it to the month-old Ubuntu 7.10.
opensourcelearning.info: DesktopBSD uses the KDE desktop and since that desktop has the reputation of being a paradise for the customizer I started the task of fine tuning my desktop with an optimistic mindset.
c|net blogs: I had to wake up early in the morning to do it, but I was able to order an XO laptop from the One Laptop Per Child Foundation (and donate another at the same time). I was prepared to discover the project's website was overloaded with visitors-- one observer predicted the alloted systems would sell out "in 30 seconds"-- but I had no problems.
Dana Blankenhorn: The charm of the cash-poor open source movement was you couldn’t be fired. Everyone was a volunteer. You could take this code and fork it. But with corporate-run communities like Sun’s OpenJDK, even other corporations wonder if that’s the case any more.

beans: Ask ten bloggers at random what they use to compose their blog posts and chances are that you might get ten different answers to that. For the GNU/Linux users there are quite a few options and all of them fulfill certain blogging needs to near perfection. Below I am going to discuss five different ways.
raiden's realm: Welcome to part 3 of our Linux Media Player Roundup. Today we'll be covering even more media players that are available for Linux, and even touching on a couple that do more than just play music, they also play your movies and dvd's.
iTWire: As I was doing some research for another article, I ran across a forum in which small business users were discussing why they wanted a particular software product (Quickbooks) ported to Linux. One poster's comments caught my attention. What he said convinced me that all small businesses should be running Linux on their desktops.
the distrogue: Back on December 6, 2006, the Linux world was eagerly awaiting the first pre-release of Ulteo, a Kubuntu-based OS that would supposedly revolutionize how we computed. It came out, there were a few reviews, and the world kept spinning again. So here we are, almost a year later, and what's happened since then?
linux.com: Firefox includes an option for bookmarking all open tabs, but heavy users of tabs will find that this option is hardly enough. When you are researching a subject, the particular combination of tabs matters as much as the individual ones -- and, besides, selecting the tabs to open individually can be tedious if you are dealing with several dozen. And what happens if your session crashes before you have a chance to bookmark?
A discussion of one of the biggest obstacles facing a "Windows to Linux" transition.
phoronix: Last month Alex Deucher pushed out the xf86-video-ati 6.7.195 driver, which is another release candidate before the 6.8 release for this open-source ATI graphics driver.
FOSSwire: If you are using GNOME and a distribution that supports either sudo or su, then we have a quick tip for you.
freesoftwaremagazine.com: SSH tools, long used by UNIX gurus to perform complicated administrative tasks over the internet on machines miles away, are a very simple and user-friendly solution for more conventional purposes. Ubuntu users, read on to learn how to use SSH to run your favorite GNU/Linux software on Microsoft Windows—without installing any software on the Windows box.
linux-watch: Over the last several weeks, the Open Document Foundation has taken back its support for the Open Document Format, and has confused many of its friends. It has now closed up shop.
