movingparts.net: The T61 is a heck of a nice little machine. Fast, smooth, quiet, and the works. However, there are a few things that have proven to be not so nice: most notably that which is absolutely necessary in a laptop: suspend and resume.
grumpy bunny: One of the basic problems facing Linux conversions these days is the person who says something to the effect of "I've used Windows Xp for the past 4 years and I've never had any problem with it."
varna.wordpress: It is precisely when I have a lot of work to do, that I find other things to do. Last week was one of those times. I’ve always wanted to use a Linux distro without getting rid of a prior working version of Windows XP. I have now succeeded.
DPotD: Cowsay is a useless but very fun text filter written in Perl. If you send some text into cowsay, you get an ASCII cow saying your text.
mikehmayer.com: Ubuntu Linux is one of the best open source solutions that the world has ever seen. It is a free and powerful operating system that includes, by default, most of the tools that people need on a daily basis to get work done on a computer. What tools it lacks have free and open source alternatives that, in many of cases, can do equivalent or better work.
thelinuxmovement.blogspot: Another cool dock, cairo-dock. I used it when it first came out and it has made a ton of progress. So here is a little video to show it off.
fanaticattack.com: It appears that the Gnome Foundation is participating in ECMA TC 451 regarding resolving comments and contradictions for DIS 29500. Given the technical shortcomings in the specification and the disregard for process that the backers of DIS 29500 have displayed during the process, Gnome’s participation in this activity is to the detriment of interoperability among office suits.
kmandla.wordpress.com: I’m prejudiced. I admit it in the first sentence. Ubuntu was the origin of my Linux history, and I’m still partial to it. I approach Fluxbuntu with a mix of hope and over-familiarity, and that might shine through because I really, really like it.
Serdar Yegulalp: Since this blog does get filed under the category Open Source, I thought I'd take time out here and there to talk about some of my favorite open-source applications, not just Linux (or OSes in general). I'll start with an app that has breathed unexpected new life into some of my DVDs: MPlayer.
review linux: Linux Mint 4.0 Beta 021 was released on October 26 2007. Like their tagline; slogan; campaign speech says, Linux Mint is really an "elegant" distribution. I had no issues at all installing Linux Mint 4 Beta on my innotek VirtualBox.
kernelTRAP: A recent report on the lkml suggested improved IO/writeback performance in the recently released 2.6.24-rc1 kernel compared to the earlier 184.108.40.206 and 220.127.116.11 kernels. Credit was given to some patches by Peter Zijlstra. Ingo Molnar replied, "wow, really nice results! "
Ivan Čukić: Well, not exactly, but now you can get the general idea, and you can see what it will look like. This is an actual screenshot, not a mock up. Extender Button is the base of the no-click concept interface.
arstechnica: Ubuntu founder Mark Shuttleworth kicked off FOSSCamp this morning with some introductory remarks. The goal of FOSSCamp, he says, is to get those involved with open source projects together to collaborate and share ideas.

kmandla.wordpress: This is kind of a weird problem with a lot of different solutions. Usually it’s a trick to shut down the computer from the right-click menu in Openbox if you’re using a privileged user account, not a root account. There are a couple of ways around that.
zerias.blogspot: Recently there has been an article floating around touting that Windows is selling better than Linux. Now, there are a multitude of ways to discredit an article these days. The fact is, the majority of Linux's growth as an operating system has come at the hands of grass roots activists.
Telegraph: A couple of weeks ago, we featured the Sony Vaio TZ21 range of ultra-portable notebooks. But what about those people who already have a desktop computer, or perhaps a chunky but reliable laptop that works perfectly well at home but causes hernias and sciatica when it's taken on the road?
phoronix: This past weekend my uncle had computer problems again, yes the one that was ripped off by the geek squad before. He knew I was in town just for a party and going back. He did not want to tell me that his computer was messed up again but I knew it after looking at his face. I said I would stop by and fix it.
Having recently encountered problems upgrading from Ubuntu 7.04 to 7.10 I decided to do a clean install. I opted to install the AMD 64 bit version of Ubuntu.
