blogbeebe: I've been reading lately about how Dell is slated to sell just 20,000 PCs with Linux loaded on them. I've seen that number thrown repeatedly into the faces of an uncaring blogosphere by folks who obviously have no love for either Linux of Ubuntu.
Following the Edu Day at aKademy, I got a Classmate PC which is a machine Intel developed. The laptop has a Suse system on it with KDE 3.5.1 and my goal is to see how KDE-Edu applications run on it.
laptopcom: If you are eager to have one Asus Eee mini laptop you can visit NCIXUS Retailer. They offer 5 models with different 5 prices that you can order. The retailer says that your order shipment takes 1 to 2 weeks.
blogbeebe: After booting this release of Ubuntu on a machine with an ATI graphics card, I moved over to my other box that has an nVidia-based Gigabyte 7600 GS AGP video card. I had no idea how Ubuntu would handle this card in a live situation.
kernelTRAP: In the continuining discussion about how GCC treats the volatile keyword, Linus Torvalds noted, "I just have a strong suspicion that 'volatile' performance is so low down the list of any C compiler persons interest, that it's never going to happen. And quite frankly, I cannot blame the gcc guys for it."
the distrogue: Windows and OS X aren't perfect (or BSD or Haiku or whatever), but there are distributions that would be better suited to a complete Linux newbie than Ubuntu. Arguably two of the best are PCLinuxOS and Mint.
liquidat: For quite some time know the KDE team thought about having a KDE 4 release party some months after the original KDE 4.0 release. According to that plan the KDE 4.0 release in October will be official, but not press-release-official - that one will be celebrated some months later.
Xenh12@PCLinuxOS: where PCLinuxOS has a real edge over a distro like Ubuntu, is when it comes to the programs available in synaptic.
dasman’s World: I can only take so many mysterious disappearances of my wireless network. It turns out, exactly 146 disappearances! So, when my Vista laptop decided for the 147th time that I was connected to my wireless network “kind of”, I decided enough was enough!

catonmat.net: Ever since I published my personal sed, ed and awk cheat sheets in .pdf and .doc formats, I have been receiving suggestions that I should also create plain text versions of them.

The Linux Movement: Now a little while ago I posted about a new Awn mock up that looked really great designed by Awn forum user Meek. Well to be exact I posted about it on August 15. Now why is that date important? Thats about when the idea was first posted on the Awn forum. This is now 9 days later, and we have a working preview of this mock-up already! Now that is progress!
consortiuminfo.org: This just in: China has unanimously voted "no, with comments" on OOXML. As I had noted in an earlier blog entry, China had been signalling some displeasure with Microsoft and OOXML in recent weeks, via Xinhua, the official government news agency, so this is not totally a surprise.
linuxdevices: A start-up in the French Alps near Grenoble is readying its second Linux SBC (single-board computer) the size and shape of a USB memory stick. Calao's USB-S8815 is based on a 333MHz ARM9 processor, runs Linux 2.6, and has 128MB each of flash and RAM.
kmandla.wordpress.com: All right, if you’re still using Firefox, you need to put down the mouse right now. Just put it down. Let go. Relax your index finger for a few minutes. Most of the about:config tweaks that work for Firefox also work for Kazehakase.
blogbeebe: Downloaded, burned, and booted into Ubuntu 7.10 alpha 5 just to kick the virtual tires. Impressed over all with the quality of this alpha release, and I can see (and appreciate) where Canonical is going with Ubuntu.

tom-buntu: Screenlets are themed mini-applications programmed in Python. They are comparable to the widgets in OSX and Windows. This post will guide you through installing Screenlets and setting them up with Compiz Fusion to work similarly to widgets in Apple’s OSX.
Moving to Freedom: I’m guessing that most people with a digital camera or a web site have spent time cropping pictures. There are lots of programs that can do this. In this post I hope to show you that the GIMP is a great tool for cropping pictures.
