ubuntu.com: Yesterday we took a look at Desktop Effects with Compiz. Today we turn to all the improvements for Firefox including the a better way to install plugins and the arrival of Gnash, a Free flash player.
tectonic: Here at Tectonic we spend way too much time online and a great deal of that time is spent doing research. QuickNote is one of the few Firefox extensions that make it possible for us to escape the Internet occasionally have lives in 'meat space'.

Mandrake used to have a unique identity. Initial versions of Mandriva continued with that identity. But the latest version seems to be shedding that identity, and becoming a shadow of other distributions. If you want to lead, don't follow someone else.
The Oregonian: As director of the California-based Linux Foundation, Jim Zemlin circles the globe proclaiming the virtues of open source software -- computer programs that are written collaboratively by developers all over the world, and are frequently given away free.
DPotD: Aren’t you tired of those audio players with billions of useless features that clutter up their graphical interface? I am. Decibel Audio Player is a simple and nice audio player for the GNOME desktop. Decibel Audio Player follows as closely as possible the GNOME Human Interface Guidelines.
kernelTRAP: This NTFS update fixes the deadlock at mount time reported by several people over the years but it was only recently that someone who reported it actually replied to my response and helped me track it down (I have never been able to reproduce the deadlock).
faler.wordpress: As for my opinion of Ubuntu? Pretty much a pile of dog shit. It tries hard to be “user friendly”, but still doesn’t go far enough like Windows, and you still end up having to edit obscure files like in traditional linux distros, only difference is the “user friendly” helper applications may overwrite your changes.
wadejolson.wordpress: In my ongoing series of asking people to reflect on “what does KDE mean to you?”… taking the standard question of “What does KDE stand for?”asked by people curious about the acronym and twisting it around to make it hopefully a more interesting answer and a bit more introspective.
ciganthought.blogspot: We've all read these articles, and most of us have written angry responses. Listing flaws that either we all know about, or flaws we have no control over. These articles get it wrong because Linux is indeed ready for OUR desktops, and obviously ready for the desktops of certain professional developers, and public library and education stations. Well you know why it's ready for those desktops?
blog.blanco.net.ve: Yes, the next Oct. 18, Venezuelan institutions should report their progress in the process of migration to Linux. However, at this time there are many who have not done anything and others who rush passage.
- Fugubuntu = Linux for Poisonous (Yet Tasty) Fish
- Stewbuntu = Edible Linux Compiled with Gigantic Meat Chunks
nixternal: Well, I just wanted to write up a quick post here and let you know that it isn’t all that hard. If you just started using Ubuntu, or Linux in general, then yes, it might be a tad bit hard at first. If you can compile and install a tarball, then you are well on your way.
cybernet: I was just over at the OpenOffice site browsing through some of their marketing materials to see if there was anything interesting. I came across a presentation and it walked through some of the most notable features that are expected to be released in the next big OpenOffice milestone.
PCWorld: This week Microsoft Corp said it would patch Windows to reduce the risk of a new kind of Web-based security vulnerability, but security researchers say that other operating systems are probably at risk too.
Serdar Yegulalp: After reading colleague Alexander Wolfe's piece about a Linux distro called "Vixta" that apes the look and feel of Windows Vista, I confess to having mixed feelings about the whole thing. Mostly negative ones.
pinderkent.blogsavy.com: Kubuntu 7.10 RC was announced as available several days ago. While other articles will no doubt focus on the many benefits that Kubuntu 7.10 will bring, I’d like to look forward into the future. Namely, this is because of the upcoming release of KDE 4, which is currently planned for December 11, 2007.
bloggernews.net: I have spent the last week in Windows hell, I have been the victim of virus writers, and indeed a victim of Microsoft themselves, I believe they call the program “Windows Genuine (DIS)advantage”. When I saw the Press Release for Linspire I was skeptical to say the least. Generally speaking Linux requires a PHD in Astro Physics just to log in. It then requires a double PHD just to browse a web site.
torgodevil.com: Gutsy FINAL isn’t due out until October 18th, but they’ve released a “Release Candidate” version that’s probably going to be the final version baring any major fuckmuppetry. Since the command to upgrade was LITERALLY one line of short code, I figured “What the hell?
linux.com: On October 11, 2005, proprietary software maker Xara announced its plans to open the source code to its flagship vector graphics package Xara Xtreme, and with the help of community developers port it to Linux. Today, two years later, the project is stagnant and on the verge of irrelevance, primarily because the company couldn't figure out how to work with the open source community.
