iTWire: The topic of Linux on the desktop is one that raises its head every couple of days somewhere on the web - and here it is again. Windows use is also a habit - it is developed in the kindergarten, continues in school, goes with you to college and then into the workplace.
arstechnica: The first beta release of GNOME 2.20 was announced late last week. According to the release schedule, the second beta release will occur on August 29.
/home/liquidat: Mickael Marchand created a branch in KDE SVN to work on a KDE configuration storage system based SQL. This picks up the idea to have more ways in KDE to store the configuration than just having the file based way.
lo-fi-librarian.co.uk: As much as my general first impressions were positive, I must admit I wasn’t too impressed on the look of the default Ubuntu. If you’re used to something a bit more shiny, like Vista for example, you might be disappointed.
blogbeebe: It had to happen sooner or later. Over the weekend I finally upgraded my Gateway M685 to openSuse 10.2. I'd already done this with the older M680, and it had gone surprisingly well.
PR: Canonical, the company behind Ubuntu Linux, announced today that it has joined the UK's trade association for the Open Source industry, the Open Source Consortium (OSC). The OSC is currently calling for platform independence for the BBC's iPlayer.
Carla Schroder: Since our previous peek at the state of wireless networking in Linux, which is moving forward in an excellent fashion, the new unified Linux wireless stack (mac80211) has been accepted into the mainline 2.6.22 kernel. This is the new common base for all Linux wireless drivers.
lxpages: Sometimes you may find yourself working with hundreds or thousands of files which need to have extension removed or just changed say from .htm to .html or .php to .html for some reason. Well.. since I know you’d someday come across such an issue, we’ve put together a couple of tips that you may find helpful.
linux.com: As a former course designer and academic, I used to be experienced in talking in front of people. However, one thing I hadn't done until now is appear on television. That, more than anything, is why I agreed to appear on the computer show Lab with Leo Laporte in a five-minute spot about the GNU/Linux desktop.
CRN: Work smarter, not harder. Even the most divine Linux gods rely on a handful of tools and utilities to make troubleshooting, management and deployment easier and faster.
kernelTRAP: Jungseung Lee announced the first public release of gitstat, "a GPL'd, web-based git statistics/monitoring system." He explains, "it retrieves a specified git tree, analyzes changesets, and shows graphical information like the number of changesets per day, the number of people who submitted changesets for a specific version(tag), etc."
Sauerbraten (a.k.a. Cube 2) is a free multiplayer/singleplayer first person shooter. Yesterday a new version was released. Some improvements include local server now respects "gamespeed" and "paused" vars, added workaround for crashes with Linux ATI/fglrx drivers, and added dynamic lighting system.
ITtoolbox Blogs: I played a bit with Kubuntu this morning in preparation for the article "PC-BSD for Ubuntu Users". It made sense to me to compare the two operating systems if they were both running the same window manager (KDE) so I wouldn't be distracted by Gnome v.s. KDE issues. That was my first mistake....
iTWire: One of the great strengths of Linux is its multi-faceted network server capabilities, reaching back to its rich UNIX history and the development of TCP/IP on that platform. If you’re a software developer, it’s dead simple to network-enable your own apps too, making them act consistently with other server processes. Here’s how to do it, in two parts.
linux.com: Interclue is a Firefox extension that lets you preview whatever a hyperlink on a page is pointing to. Unlike other link previewers, Interclue doesn't just display a tiny replica of what's hiding under the link.

thefreedesktop.blogspot: My new Acer laptop came with Windows Vista Home Premium preinstalled. I quickly installed Ubuntu on a separate partition - keeping the Vista install for the time being. I use Ubuntu Linux as my primary OS. However for a moment, I was pleased to have kept Vista around.
raiden's realm: An interesting article came up recently on Netcraft that details Microsoft's apparent increase in IIS web server market share. In the article they list a very interesting trend in web server deployments, showing IIS increasing its market share by 1.4% while Apache, Microsoft's biggest rival in the web server market, lost a surprising 1.7% of its market to come out at 34.2% and 48.4% respectively.
Compiz Fusion News: We’ve had quite a few radical changes done to compiz-core and the Compiz Fusion website is in the process of going up, where as I have said previously, this blog will be split in two.
LinuxWorld: The controversial U.S. visa program puts paperwork and quotas between U.S.-based open source companies and international job seekers. "There’s a great concern over undocumented immigrants and we tend to get bundled together with that issue."
CLICK: Everybody loves a new Puppy. And those behind the Puppy Linux distro are happy to oblige, releasing a new version every couple of months. For the user or reviewer, it's a lot to keep up with. Luckily, upgrading is as easy as popping in a new CD.
