eWeek (SJVN): Patent fights are fights about money. The secondary issue, the one that makes the headlines, is control. To really understand what's going on in the current patent posturing involving Microsoft, Novell, and a host of open-source companies and groups, it helps to keep those factors firmly in mind.
informationweek: My tepid post, in which I gingerly chided Dell for not caveating its Ubuntu offerings up the wazoo, while at the same time complimenting the previously direct-sales-only PC powerhouse as being the best friend Linux has had in a long time, prompted a firestorm of reader responses.
osreviews: First-person shooters (FPS) are probably the most controversial games that exist. In some cases one has to differentiate between the game engine and the actual game content (graphics, maps, sounds).
Caitlyn Martin: A complete set of GNOME 2.18 packages have been added to the Vector Linux Extra repository. This means that users of Vector Linux 5.8 Standard or SOHO can add GNOME easily in addition to Xfce or KDE.
Eclipse hints, tips, and random musings: It seems that I've been reading a lot of "Ubuntu Experience" blog entries lately. I decided that, with the arrival of my new laptop, I'd do the same.
itmanagement: Fedora 7 helps to convince me that the time when the major GNU/Linux distributions were distinctive is rapidly passing. These days, innovation seems centered on the desktop or the individual program. Major distributions have become so mature that their role is mostly integration, and they are starting to look increasingly the same.
Michael Larabel: Jonathan Corbet of LWN.net had published an article earlier in the month entitled ATI starts to come around? The article basically spins AMD's lack of enthusiasm.
tabletpcreview: The Nokia N800 Internet Tablet is a tiny little wonder. It's about the size of a smartphone or PDA, but it has a lot more functionality. It's not quite the same as a Tablet PC, but it's very similar to a slate Tablet since there is no keyboard.
GIMP 2.3.17 is a snapshot of current development towards GIMP 2.4. The source code can be downloaded from the usual places. The 2.3.18 release will follow soon.
Linux.com: WordPress is a full-featured "personal publishing" platform, but it offers little in the way of traffic analysis. If you'd like to dig into your traffic patterns and have a better idea who's visiting your site and what they're coming to see, take a look at the Open Web Analytics (OWA) plugin for WordPress. It's easy to use, and provides a wealth of information about your site traffic.
Great Design: Firefox is great and there is also some amazing add ons that go with it. In no particular order the top 10 Addons.
LWN: A new site has been launched at rpm5.org; it claims to be "the home of the official RPM Package Manager (RPM) code base." This site should not be confused with rpm.org, which is the home of Red Hat's fork of RPM; rpm5 is the Jeff Johnson fork.
Explore the innovation of open source solutions available from IBM and see the power and flexibility of an open community development environment.
linuxlinks.com: This is a brief guide to the world of Linux distributions, primarily aimed at individuals who are new to the Linux scene, and who are thinking about taking the plunge and trying Linux for the first time. To set the scene, let's start with a very brief history of the origins of Linux.
dot.kde.org: With only a month to go the schedule for Akademy 2007 is filling up. Our tutorial day has been popular enough to fill up two days covering subjects from Interview in Qt 4 to Emacs, Kopete plugins and an introduction to KDE development.
CNET: When the pale blue "Linux car," also known as car #77 from Chastain Motorsports, was the first car to crash in the 91st Indianapolis 500 on Sunday, we can imagine hordes of geeks wishing it had been a "Vista car" instead. Imagine the "blue screen of death" jokes that could have resulted!
itjungle.com: Last week, just as the Western economies were gearing down for the Memorial Day holiday, commercial Linux distributor Novell announced that it has completed its lengthy and voluntary review of stock-based compensation for the past decade and can now report its financial results for the first quarter.

This article shows how you can install Ruby on Rails (RoR) and integrate it in Apache2 on a Debian Etch system. Ruby on Rails is a web application framework which is rapidly gaining popularity among web programmers. It aims to increase the speed and ease with which database-driven web sites can be created and offers skeleton code frameworks (scaffolding) from the outset. Applications using the RoR framework are developed using the Model-View-Controller design pattern.
Leon Atkinson's blog: I’ve been running Ubuntu for about a year. I still have an XP desktop at home, but most of my time is spent on a Ubuntu laptop or the Alienware box I converted last July.
