pkblogs.com: I am one of Linux enthusiast like you people, and have used almost all major Linux distros in past. I am very impressed with PCLOS 2k7, even more than i was with Ubuntu. So here it goes as if why PCLOS 2k7 is better than Ubuntu :
kdedevelopers: This week was so filled with events and news that it easily qualifies for the most exciting openSUSE week yet: On Monday the rush until feature and version freeze of openSUSE 10.3 started in the evening. The Final Draft of the openSUSE Guiding Principles was posted. The announcements that both Lenovo and Dell will start to pre-load SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop and offer support.
kernelTRAP: Greg KH and Chris Wright have been maintaining a -stable 2.6.x.y patchset for the 2.6.x and 2.6.(x-1) kernels since March of 2005. Thus, with the current stable release being 2.6.22, they maintain -stable patches for 2.6.22 and 2.6.21.
Matt Asay: Deja vu. Remember 2002? That's when Red Hat decided to split its code into Red Hat Advanced Server (now Red Hat Enterprise Linux) and Fedora. Howls of protest and endless hand-wringing ensued: How dare Red Hat not give everything away to freeriders everywhere? Enter 2007.
velocitywebdev: I had the opportunity to meet a lot of people at Linux World. One really caught my attention to a lot of problems that our education system faces today. In particular, inner city schools, or schools that are deprived of some of the things middle to upper class schools experience.
monitor.co.ug: Software costs money. Some people avoid this cost initially by slyly using an unauthorized version, or what is called pirated software. Ugandan businesses don't love Linux. The most efficient way to immediately migrate to Linux is to contact a Linux-friendly company, such as Red Hat or Novell.
kahvipapu.com blogs: The original single player Half-Life 2 runs fine with Wine, even HL2DM runs fine when playing locally. But joining online game always crashed it. Gladly, someone came up with a solution! Wine has lately improved by amazing leaps, even DirectX support is nowadays pretty good.
BlindConfidential: For the past couple of weeks I’ve also been running VMWare and a Ubuntu distribution of the cap Linux operating environments. I’m enjoying being back in a UNIX environment for the first time in many years.
Information Week: Peugeot is planning to give Linux desktops to a wide variety of computer users, including sales force workers and workers on the manufacturing floor.
tracylogan.com: One of the primary needs I have when shopping for a new motherboard is, like all right-thinking people, whether it will work well under Linux. Unfortunately, it's also relatively difficult to find out that information -- the manufacturers don't bother, the review sites rarely mention it, and even the Linux hardware sites are skewed by human nature: Most people only post about problems, not successes. Not so with this post!
information week: With the number of malicious Web pages mushrooming over the past several months, the Mozilla Foundation is looking to help users defend themselves. Window Snyder, who is Mozilla's "chief security something-or-other," says the company is taking a two-pronged approach.
linux by example: Do you wish to have a shortcut way to make your window stay on top and toggle it after without needing it anymore ? Any EWMH compatible Windows Manager(WM) may support it, WM such as GNOME (metacity), fluxbox, xfce, compiz, beryl etc.
ubuntu geek: CHM files, known as Microsoft Compressed HTML Help files, are a common format for eBooks and online documentation. It is a proprietary format for online help files, developed by Microsoft and first released in 1997 as a successor to the Microsoft WinHelp format.
beranger: Besides the legal aspects of the GPL, some believe there should be a 'spirit' of it too. When I criticized some other projects or companies for not acting in the spirit of the open source, I was ridiculed. Now, this MySQL developer is definitely right.
tech-articles: Following commands are available in slackware to work with packages.
FOSSwire: This guide is about as “official” as a 3rd party how-to can get. Amaranth is the Compiz Developer and Maintainer for Ubuntu.
bloggernews.net: When last we left our intrepid grandmother, she was watching NBC nightly news via MIRO (aka democracy player). So what is next?
InfoWorld: Microsoft has lost a key vote in its quest to develop an alternative to the Open Document Format standard, backed by the open-source community.
Also: U.S. org set to vote against Open XML's approval in ISO... this time
richardfcrawley: One of the nice things about Linux is one thing that Microsoft Windows can never be — a tool to rescue an old or ailing computer. After Linux began to be offered on live CD, I started using them to rescue ailing systems. People would ask me to rescue their computers running Windows.
Linux Electrons: Rendering is the cornerstone of 3D creativity and the most performance-driven task in the production pipeline. NVIDIA Corporation has taken a major step forward demonstrating its next-generation, near-real-time, high-quality rendering product with performance improvements capable of re-lighting 60 frames of a complex scene in 60 seconds.
