I've been writing a Ruby computer programming textbook (the going is slow). Along with the book will be a series of instructional videos on CD showing video computer screen clips with audio narration.
In this week's KDE Commit-Digest: Fortune-teller and Keyboard Layout applets for Plasma, KNewsTicker resurrected for KDE 4.0 as a Plasmoid. Rewrite of <canvas> tag support in KHTML. Various new language syntax highlighting in Kate. Internal database storage work in Digikam.
desktoplinux: Linux users from around the world are filling out the Linux Foundation's desktop survey. But what John Cherry, the foundation's director of global Linux workgroups, wants to know is, "Where are the responses from the North America?"
distrogue: In Linux-land this week, it was pretty much Ubuntu Gutsy, Ubuntu Gutsy, and Ubuntu 7.10. The new additions, Gobuntu and Fluxbuntu, didn't seem to receive as much attention. As is tradition, neither did Xubuntu. But Xubuntu is still a solid system for people with older hardware.
Also: Ubuntu 7.10 Gutsy Gibbon
tux love (pc world blogs): In Linux, you don't need to burn a CD or DVD image to a disc to take a look at its contents. Since "everything's a file", it's just a matter of mounting it. So do you mount an ISO file?
techrepublic: Linux has come a long way from the early, oft-crashing days. GNOME is now one of the primary desktops for the Linux operating system; not only is it highly customizable, but it is amazingly stable. Jack Wallen explains why Linux -- running GNOME -- is a viable desktop alternative.
phoronix: Today it's now time where the fglrx driver reaches yet another milestone. Not only does today's release address many of the outstanding bugs for the earlier GPU generations while also introducing a few new features, but it also delivers AIGLX support! Yes, you read that right.
linux-blog.org: During distro comparisons, many call a lack of release cycle for PCLinuxOS one of its negative aspects. In my opinion, this is the most attractive and positive aspects of the small distribution. PCLinuxOS has a unique approach to releases and updates. Allow me a bit of time to show you the method in my madness on this one.
information week: Andrew Morton, sometimes referred to as the colonel of the kernel, is Linus Torvalds' right hand man when it comes to getting out new kernel releases. In this interview with InformationWeek editor at large, Charles Babcock, he talks about recent kernel development including an assessment of recent patches and tools.

linux.wordpress.com: As I had VMware Workstation running on all my previous *SUSE distros, I as well installed the latest available version 6.0.2 on my openSUSE 10.3 desktop. Even though the latest openSUSE 10.3 comes with Virtualbox, problem being with it is that even the latest Virtialbox 1.5.2 doesn’t support running 64-bit guest OS.

beranger: 3+1 rants = Preston St. Pierre opines on Linux.com that X/OS is an undistinguished Red Hat clone, where "undistinguished" is rather disparaging, à la "why do we need it?" My problem is not "which RHEL 5 clone to use", but rather "why is RHEL 5 so castrated"?
itjungle.com: Canonical jumped into the Unix distribution business in October 2004 and got into Linux server distribution in June 2006. With the launch last week of Ubuntu 7.10 for desktops and servers last week and the upcoming launch in April 2008 of a new Long Term Support variant of Ubuntu, it is reasonable to stop for a second and try to assess how well or poorly Ubuntu is doing on servers.
infoworld blogs: There's this video on YouTube. It's all about the new "eye candy" in Windows and Ubuntu. Of course, like most attempts by the Linux community to parrot Windows Vista, the aforementioned "eye candy showdown" misses the forest for the trees.
tectonic: Last week the Ubuntu team released Ubuntu 7.10, codenamed Gutsy Gibbon, in one of the more hyped releases of the past couple of months. Tectonic joined every other Linux fan in the world in downloading a copy on the the day it was released. Then we spent the weekend working it over.
nzherald.co.nz: If the battle between computer operating systems was won or lost on the basis of which has the cutest name, Ubuntu would surely reign supreme. Ubuntu is a version of Linux, the open-source OS that is chipping away at Microsoft's domination of the software market.
Also: Ubuntu Back on TOP
cybernet: Ever since we wrote about Mint, the free finance management site, we have received a few requests from those looking for good software to manage personal finances. I found exactly what I was looking for: Money Manager Ex. Not only is it free, but it is open source and available for both Windows and Linux!
iTWire: Norway's Opera Software, intends to build on the market niche it has carved for its increasingly popular Web browser by setting up an office in the heart of Silicon Valley. Opera's new Mountain View office puts the company in close proximity to some the most important global Web players, including Google and Yahoo.
Matthew Aslett: Mitchell Baker has posted the details on Mozilla’s financial performance for 2006 and it is more good news. Revenue was up around 26% to $66.8m, while usage is also on the up.
iTWire: I've decided to see if Ubuntu can meet my needs, but recreating this backup regime under Gutsy Gibbon is proving quite a challenge. The people behind Handy Backup are working on a Linux version, but until it's available I'll have to come up with something else. I'm not prepared to start using Ubuntu for work until I get a satisfactory backup regime in place.
