Matt Asay: I spent an hour with Matthew Szulik this morning, wanting to get his input on the Open Source CEO Series. Matthew isn't the sort of person to seek the limelight for himself, so it was actually hard to convince him to answer questions.
pimp your linux: Automatix is a program that installs a myriad programs on Linux distributions. It’s quite useful for people that are fed up with the limited options in the regular Ubuntu package manager. However, as helpful as the program may seem, there exists a problematic side to Automatix.
desktoplinux: OK, Desktop Linux heads, I'm a confessed newbie trying to switch to Linux from XP. My simplyMEPIS install from an ISO went well, but now, on day two, my attempts to install the just-released Firefox update have failed.
informationweek blogs: How are Linux distributions like digital cameras? It sounds like a joke on the order of, "What’s the difference between a compulsive gambler and a revolving door?" (Answer: The revolving door knows when to stop.) But the more I’ve thought about it, the more I’ve realized that Linux distros are as varied as digital cameras, and for some of the same reasons.
intelligententerprise.com: I received Gartner e-mail this week marketing their up-coming open-source summit. The message contains gems that illuminate Gartner's perspective on open source and the larger IT world.
ubuntu tutorials: This tutorial is for those people that like to run gnome and KDE side by side. This will allow you to only show the native apps in the menus within each desktop environment instead of showing everything.
Brian Proffitt: Across from me is the man who invented that monitor and the content delivery system that runs it, Eric Kanagy, CEO of RedPost, Inc. I have traveled all of 40 minutes to Goshen, Indiana to meet Eric and find out what's the big deal about an electronic bulletin board that runs Linux.
liquidat: KDE 4 is coming closer, and the 3rd party programs are busy porting. Amarok now unveiled that they will reuse some Plasma techniques to create appealing effects while Digikam reported a first version running on KDE 4.
phoronix: Sabayon Linux has released a "business edition" of its popular LiveDVD distribution known for its use of desktop accelerated effects and being based upon Gentoo. Sabayon Linux 1.0 Business Edition ships without the eye candy and games and is for when art meets business.
kernelTRAP: A recently merged KVM patchset included support for guest SMP, various performance improvements, and suspend/resume fixes. KVM stands for Kernel-based Virtual Machine, "a full virtualization solution for Linux on x86 hardware containing virtualization extensions".
arstechnica: The Participatory Culture Foundation (PCF) has renamed and relaunched its open-source television platform in hopes of offering an "open, mass medium of online television." What was once known as Democracy Player is now Miro.
blog.cryos.net: It has been a while since I last posted about progress with Avogadro. I have been doing a lot of under the hood improvements which has been really frustrating at times and hard to blog about. At last I have some real output and have just committed the code to the repository.
linuxdevices: Core KDE developer Daniel Molkentin has written a book about Trolltech's cross-platform application development toolkit. Published by NoStarch Press, and entitled, "The Book of Qt 4."
Raiden's Realm: Puppy Linux is a light weight Linux distribution built from scratch and born in mid 2002. It’s creator, Barry Kauler, originally created Puppy Linux as a fun project to do in his spare time. But recent tension in the community have spawned some heated controversy of late.
linux.com: Supergamer is a unique Linux distribution whose primary focus is on fun -- specifically, gaming. Supergamer VL, now based on VectorLinux, is all new, with additional games, new code base, and new look and feel. Let the games begin.
vnunetblogs: "Linux is hard to install" You probably bought a computer with Windows preinstalled and bought a new one when it came to a grinding halt. Next time try reinstalling it from scratch, drivers and applications included.
informationweek blogs: Remember the 1980s worries about how the "forking" of Unix could hurt that operating system's chances for adoption? That was nothing compared to the mess we've got today with Linux.
seopher: In a mildly childish attempt at putting the popularity of Ubuntu into real context, I've enlisted the help of Google trends to benchmark searches for "Ubuntu" against other words. Mindless spam or important sociological experiment?
LWN: It appears that former openSUSE manager Andreas Jaeger has been promoted within Novell, so the management of the openSUSE distribution has been passed to Stephan Kulow.
Paul Cutler: GUADEC, the annual GNOME user and developer conference, is in full swing in England right now. One of my favorite times of the year as a GNOME user, all the GNOME developers get together and blog about all the cool stuff they’re working on, or want to be working on.
