matt asay: Is Linux pushing the envelope a bit too far, too fast? That's the question posed by Charlie Babcock's interesting article on the pace and scope of Linux development. Not at all.
smspillaz.wordpress.com: Great news from the dev team as Compiz Fusion 0.6.0, based on Compiz-Core has been released after fixing many bugs and adding a ton of new features.
kdedevelopers.org: It has been a fun week. I'm pretty much convinced now that we are on track with KDE 4. There certainly still is some way ahead, but we are getting there. This will be an exciting release. Of course I'm writing this blog entry on a KDE 4 desktop.
adventuresinopensource.blogspot: On Wednesday of this week I wiped openSUSE off my machine and decided to try Mandriva 2008 next. I used to Mandrake a lot a few years back before it became Mandriva and even paid to join their Club but never felt like I got value for my money. 2006 was the last version of this distro I used and I was anxious to see what had changed:

bjacob.livejournal: I am now running a full KDE4 session, from a svn checkout from yesterday. That's 10+ days after the tagging of beta3, and at the current pace of bugfixing, this means a lot of improvements.
linuxevangelist.blogspot: If you are in the category trying ambitiously to setup your newly bought DELL XPS M1330 laptop for dual boot with GNU/Linux and ended up screwing up everything and finally Dell MediaDirect stopped working and don't know what to do, probably you've come to the right place, but you have to be ready for one fresh installation.

phoronix: The Linux client for Enemy Territory: Quake Wars was released yesterday, but can you expect this Linux-native game to run with your existing hardware? In addition to this first person shooter being very multi-core friendly, it does require more graphical horsepower than any current Linux game.
linux.com: Linux is now mainstream -- so mainstream, in fact, that two of the top three Linux distributions are commercially successful operations, and the third aims to be. Every day, more and more old-school IT firms shake off their initial doubts, get in line behind their customers, and try Linux and other free software projects. In the face of such success, will Linux remain true to its free software ideals and to the community which created it?
kernelTRAP: I'm trying to keep some external drivers up to date with the kernel, and the first two weeks after the release is the worst time for me. There is no way to distinguish the current git kernel from the latest release. It's only after rc1 is released that I can use the preprocessor to check LINUX_VERSION_CODE.

Rudd-O: VMware (Workstation or Player) under Linux tends to stutter and produce choppy audio when running a Windows XP virtual machine. Here’s what I did to kill those problems (yes, I can even use Steinberg Nuendo now!):
carsonspost.wordpress: This post will look at less obvious implementations of Linux, and what happens when a community works together to fill a need.
PCWorld: One thing is clear with new Linux distros such as Ubuntu's just-released "Gutsy Gibbon", or version 7.10, and openSUSE's 10.3, nipping at Windows' and Mac OS X's heels: The desktop OS is at a crossroads.
On-Disk.com gives developers and projects an outlet for cdrom and DVD disk distribution while also allowing them to earn some much needed resources to further their work. Webpath Technologies, the parent company of On-Disk.com, is proud and excited to report that they have paid out over 21,000 USD to Linux and software projects.

liquidat: KDE 4 Beta 3, codename Cicker, was released some days ago. This release features a new panel and of course various bug fixes.

iTWire: For the past few years, I have found the Firefox browser update process to work pretty much flawlessly. But not with today's automatic update to version 126.96.36.199 (20 October 2007). Not a single one of the installed extensions that I have come to rely on are working, and I'm very annoyed. And it seems that I'm not the only one affected.
