This tutorial shows how you can install and use AVG Antivirus on an Ubuntu Feisty Fawn desktop. Although there are not many Linux viruses out there, this can be useful if you often exchange files with Windows users - it can help you to not pass on any Windows viruses (that do not do any harm to Linux systems) to Windows users. AVG Antivirus for Linux is free for private and non-commercial use.
opensuse news: Here are Edith Parzefall’s answers to the ‘People of openSUSE’ questions. Have a lot of fun… "openSUSE is simply the best distro and I think the community around it consists of great people really dedicated to improving it."
desktoplinux: You're a marketer who finds an exciting new product developed by some really smart people. A great product few people have heard of is the Holy Grail of marketing -- all you have to do is tell everyone about it, and the world will beat a path to your door. Isn't that the theory?
zdnet blogs: In July I ordered a $150 Linux-powered laptop in what appeared to be the deal of the century. I’m still waiting. And waiting. But my order is coming–really.
pcworld.idg: "Please don't call GNU 'Linux'," says Richard Stallman, the founder of the Free Software Foundation. In this interview, he also asks readers whether they will fight for freedom or be too lazy to resist.
Pain & Glory: Today I was reading about the “Reduced Functionality” capability of Windows Vista. According to that article, Microsoft has now enabled this capability, which renders a “nongenuine” copy of Windows essentially unusable. Frankly, I just can’t see why anybody would want to use Windows Vista.
iTToolbox blogs: Linux is in great danger at the moment. That danger started when Microsoft cut their deal with Novell. Many open source advocates recognized this and there was a hue and cry over it. This furor has died down to a large extent and apathy has set in. To combat this the FSF brought out their GPLv3 but this seems to be too little too late.

techzone: Looks like PCLinuxOS is destined to reach its well deserved place in the Desktop Linux world. More and more of my friends, both in India and abroad, are switching to PCLOS. Its like a unanimous verdict. It is truly a system that just works and works fine. It's fast, it's decently stable and has all the Desktop oriented configurations by default.
the inquirer: THE "TECH" PEOPLE at PC World seem to think that Linux is responsible for creating manufacturing faults.
Linux Tip: Xara Xtreme for Linux is a powerful, general purpose graphics program for Unix platforms including Linux, FreeBSD and (in development) OS-X. Xara Xtreme is based on Xara Xtreme for Windows.

arstechnica: Dell has released a custom "remastered" Ubuntu 7.04 installation CD ISO that can be used to install Ubuntu on an Inspiron 1420 or 530. The ISO automatically installs all of the drivers and fixes that are required to make Ubuntu fully functional on those systems.
polishlinux: Many of you, Linux users, have Windows installed on your PCs for only one reason: it’s a game or a program, written only for the Redmond’s system. In the last few months true alternatives have appeared: Cedega and CrossOverOffice.
computerworld: Mozilla has posted mock-ups of Places, one of the most-awaited new features in the upcoming Firefox 3.0., on its Web site. The Places Organizer mock-up uses Windows-Vista styling to show bookmarks, surfing history and downloads in one spot.
kmandla.wordpress.com: elive was the last stop on this little four-day distro-hopping junket for the ugly little laptop, and to be honest, I only tried it because someone suggested it on one of the other reviewlets. I’m glad I took a look though: This is a very impressive desktop.
CLICK: It's not in the "one small step for man" category, but my quest to run something -- anything -- from Red Hat on my VIA C3 Samuel-equipped test box has finally been successful. But not without a lot of effort.
ruminations: Today I spend most of day on a Windows box. Alas, but my boss won’t allow anything but Windows on the workfloor. When the time to play is in short supply I automatically focus on the tools that are created to make life easy. That focus was on graphical front-ends for the ports collection.
