abclinuxu.cz: Lubos Dolezel has interviewed Nvidia's Director of Unix Software, Andy Ritger. Topics include NVIDIA Linux graphic driver improvement, nvnet driver development, and community relations.
I keep upgrading my Home PC with better peripherals to make it to breathe better for long time. The recent one is a nVidia Graphics card of model 6200A - 256MB - 8X from Zebronics. I have installed Ubuntu 7.04 (Feisty Fawn) for home productive purpose. Here is the steps I did to install this Graphics card in Ubuntu.
bryceharrington.org: The day Dell announced I ordered one of their laptops, and today it arrived. I popped open the box to see what's included. The only Ubuntu-specific thing included was the CD. I half-expected to see the 'DELL' logo on the blue-shirted guy.
zdnet blogs: Sebastian Wagner has released an open source project called openmeetings. openmeetings is billed as a “video conferencing and group collaboration application” much like Adobe Connect. This one is built on top of OpenLaszlo with the new streaming media support and Red5, and open source media sever.
CLICK: By making "intellectual property" deals with commercially oriented distributors of Linux, Microsoft isn't alienating anybody it hasn't turned off already.

Issue 18 is here and with it another bunch of great articles all about free software. We have Andrew Min showing us how to dual-boot Windows and Kubuntu. There's Mitch Meyran's in depth article on 3D desktops and Xavier Calbet's one on Fractal generation.
sys-con.com: My recent switch to a single-boot Ubuntu setup on my Thinkpad T60 simply floors me on a regular basis. It has some elegance to it - bet you never heard that about a Linux desktop before.
sys-con.com: OK, so let's cut right to what everybody wants to know. In the two quarters since its hackles-raising deal with Microsoft was signed in November, some 49,000 SUSE certificates have been activated. They are worth $91 million. Microsoft could buy more. Unless of course the GPLv3 intervenes and the tentative grandfather clause currently protecting the deal gets dropped.

LinuxWorld: The Mozilla Foundation said last week it has patched several serious security flaws in the popular Firefox browser, bugs that also affect the SeaMonkey browser and the Thunderbird e-mail application.

shift+backspace: For those of you who use Ubuntu and have not heard of Automatix, stop reading and go get it! Automatix contains many dozens of applications that help make the initial Ubuntu set up so much easier.
This month's issue of Linux Gazette is ready and online. This month's highlights include Creating an Unkillable Process, Installing Perl Modules as a Non-Root User, and Writing PostgreSQL Functions in C.
There are valid and compelling reasons why one might want to use only Open Source Software. Avoids any patent or IP legal issues, better security, and encourages innovation are just a few. Many, like myself, would like to be completely Open Source if it didn't mean losing too much functionality. Can your computer environment be entirely Open Source? What might we give up if we chose that path?
Raiden's Realm: Today's section, System Administration, covers a lot of administration of various features of KDE, including how it handles logins, date and time, and more. This is not for the fait of heart, and you can make a mess of things to the point of even locking yourself out of KDE.
SolidOffice: One of the other top ideas on Dell’s IdeaStorm website was to preinstall OpenOffice (and Firefox, and some other FOSS apps) on the Windows boxes Dell sells. From a simple end user standpoint, this option would benefit a larger number of Dell customers.
linux.com: Gmail may be an excellent Web-based email application, but there is no easy way to use it with privacy tools like GnuPG. The FireGPG extension for Firefox is designed to solve this problem. It integrates nicely into Gmail's interface and allows you to sign and encrypt not only email messages but also text snippets from any Web page.
internetnews.com: Xandros and Microsoft today announced they have entered into an agreement that, on the surface, is remarkably similar to the one forged between Microsoft and Novell last year.
Ubuntu Blog: GNOME is very advanced when it comes to providing methods to save your hands. There is the Typing Break in GNOME’s keyboard preferences dialog, but for those of us who are not satisfied with a fly swatter to swat flies, there is workrave.
OpenOffice.org Training, Tips, and Ideas: For anyone who has grown weary of the current OpenOffice chart tool, or for anyone who has attended my classes and grown alarmed at hearing that charting is as much art as science, there is some relief in sight.
