FreeSoftware Mag: I had a chance to talk to Steve Lake, at Raiden’s Realm. After a few words, I could tell that the project he was engaged in was very interesting, so I interviewed him...
Datamation: Within the past few years, the software movement known as “open source” has gained serious traction over its proprietary cousins. As it has taken hold of the mainstream, many of these applications – like Firefox and Thunderbird – are used everyday, without a second thought as to their origins.
Forbes.com: In its attempts to sell you ever-more expensive PCs, the computer industry is constantly producing faster, smaller and sexier machines. That's great for gamers, technophiles and Dell shareholders. But what about the rest of us? What do we get from all the bells and whistles piled into today's PCs?
vijedi.net: In a heterogeneous OS environment, the network file system of choice is clearly SMB/CIFS, mostly since heterogeneous implies the existence of windows machines. Lately though, I’ve been getting a little annoyed with some of the quirks of a file-system from the single user Windows world. I also don’t have any Windows machines left. Therefore, when it came time to share one resource to multiple machines, I decided to give NFS a try.
LinuxJournal: Almost everything that can be said has been said about the latest moves by Microsoft to create Fear, Uncertainty and Doubt (FUD) about Linux. Countless pundits and analysts have pointed out that Microsoft threats are toothless. Some have noted that Microsoft has singled out Linux and OpenOffice, the biggest threats to its monopoly on operating systems and office suites.
Linux.com: BitTorrent clients are all over the place these days. One of the newcomers, FoxTorrent, is a fully functional cross-platform Firefox BitTorrent client created by Red Swoosh, a company that is now part of Akamai. What FoxTorrent lacks in features it makes up for in simplicity.

Lateral Opinion: Kmail searches slowly. I have been a kmail user for a couple of years, since I settled in my own home office with my own computer. However, it annoys me that it takes sooooo long to find a message in my mailstore. Enter mairix.
Raiden's Realm: The KDE taskbar is an integral part of the KDE window manager and an integrated tool that will give you access to a wide variety of things that will make your experience in KDE so much easier. So let's look at the taskbar and go over each part of it.
internetnews: Open source business is gaining momentum and is no longer dominated by the discussion about how to make money. At least that's the view of Open Source Business Conference (OSBC) organizer Matt Asay who now thinks that open source has crossed the proverbial chasm.
CybernetNews: I’m sure many of you look kindly upon the fact that your web browser stores your passwords for you. It is no doubt a wonderful time-saving feature, and surely beats having to retype your password every time that it needs to be entered. Have you ever stopped to ask yourself how safe your passwords really are in your browser?
OSWeekly: The single biggest thing that’s working against Linux distributions, and even open source as a whole today is human nature pure and simple.
linux-gamers.net: Because there's not only one OS, and because we use an alternative OS, we wish to see native games playable on it. Especially Fallout 3, because we really want to play to great roleplaying games, please sign the
techpersona: Getting a copy of Kubuntu or any of the Ubuntu projects is easier than some people may think. One thing that is nice is that you can get a copy of the OS (in this case Kubuntu) in two different ways.

He then linked the GCC 4.2 Release Series Changes, New Features, and Fixes document for more details as to what is new in this release.
Tectonic: The claim by Microsoft earlier this week that open source infringes 235 patents, has taken an interesting turn.

&: Microsoft running scared from Linux
Free Software Magazine: By now, almost everyone who has a computer has heard about something called “Linux”. What people generally mean by the word “Linux” is Linus’ kernel combined with all of the GNU programs, which together function as an operating system.
Linux Is Life: OpenSUSE biggest advantage is that it has yast bundled with its distribution,it makes administrating your pc so hassle free It has all the elements that one needs. Ubuntu Has Advanced Packaging Tool, or APT, is a package management system used by Debian GNU/Linux and its derivatives.
E@zyVG: If you’re looking for a search engine for finding openSUSE RPMs, you can use Webpin. Webpin will automatically register new repositories and use libzypp for dependency resolution, leaving you with very little to do, while the packages are downloaded and installed quickly and transparently.
