arstechnica: In a positive effort to ease the commute of its employees, Microsoft has announced a new bus route that will reach to various local regions. Set to begin later this month, a total of five routes will stretch to Seattle, Issaquah, Mill Creek, Sammammish, and Bothell.

phoronix: This past week AMD raised the Linux graphics bar by not only announcing their new fglrx graphics driver, which delivers Radeon HD 2000 support, immense performance improvements, and AIGLX, but it was accompanied by an announcement that they will be delivering specifications to the X.Org development community. One of the common questions that has since come up is what will NVIDIA do in response.
ruminations: The fresh install of PC-BSD was a very simple task. There was no need to make backups of important files and under Vmware the creation of new virtual computer is simply a matter of following the step in the wizard. I decided not to use disk 2 to install for instance Firefox or OpenOffice.org, but just to install the basic system that disk 1 provides. That didn’t take long.
desktoplinux: Lenovo finally started shipping SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop on its T-Series ThinkPads for its mainstream business users. Now, the company appears to be considering offering another Linux, very possibly Ubuntu, for the enthusiast market.

iTWire: An intrusion detection system – or IDS – is a high-tech burglar alarm, keeping a watchful eye on your computer and alerting when computer or network activity indicates unauthorised or malicious activity. An IDS is a must-have app, and Snort is rapidly becoming the tool of choice.
etbe.coker.com.au: A common question is how to compare Fedora  and Debian  in terms of recent updates and support. I think that Fedora Rawhide and Debian/Unstable are fairly equivalent in this regard, new upstream releases get packaged quickly, and support is minimal.
writelarge.com: The other barier to GoogleOS, at least for me, is the GOOGLE IS WATCHING YOU factor. I fear Google. I don’t feel like Google is as honest as I’d like them to be. Would Goobuntu be nothing more than a widgeted up install of Ubuntu that spies on you?
phoronix: The first release candidate for Copernic, or perhaps better known as the codename for Mandriva Linux 2008, has been released. Mandriva Linux 2008 includes GNOME 2.20, the Linux 2.6.22 kernel, Compiz Fusion, and XDG menu migration and XDG user directory system.
kmandla.wordpress.com: Part of my motivation in jumping around so much is to sniff out the general state of other XFCE distributions, in case I’m driven by a wild urge to ditch Xubuntu altogether, and move in a different direction.
drobe.co.uk: An ambitious initiative to eventually run RISC OS desktop software on Linux-powered PCs took a step closer to reality this month. Issues with the user interface code have been addressed, and a bootable CD is being prepared to demonstrate the system's abilities.
nashuatelegraph.com: So, we’ve installed Linux on an older Celeron laptop in an effort to breathe new life into the old boy. Here are our recommendations for Window users who, like us, are Linux newbies:
phoronix: It was less than a week ago when we last updated you on the status of the $150 Medison Celebrity laptop. At that time the insanely cheap laptop was still no where to be found. Over the weekend the Medison Celebrity website was shutdown.
the inquirer: UNLESS YOU'VE GOT a couple of mirrored hard drives to ensure that a disk failure won't send all of your precious data to that great bit-bucket in the sky, you need to backup your data.
daniweb: A new forensic computer from a UK based company promises to make the task of gathering evidence at the scene of a crime much easier. The dual booting Windows XP and Suse Linux TreCorder portable forensic lab is built into a rugged portable chassis and can simultaneously copy up to three hard drives at a speed of 2GB per minute per drive.
kdedevelopers.org: I've never seen Xinerama combined with Compiz/Beryl/XGL (or AIGLX) in action. This morning, when checking out a printing-related blog, I stumbled upon a little YouTube video showing exactly that. It does look amazing indeed.
This tutorial describes two ways how to give users chrooted SSH access. With this setup, you can give your users shell access without having to fear that they can see your whole system. Your users will be jailed in a specific directory which they will not be able to break out of. The users will also be able to use SFTP in their chroot jails.
DPotD: I’ve recently grown paranoid about my data, and I keep using rsync to keep backup of various files a bit everywhere. But it lacks fundamental things you would want from a real backup system. So I went looking for something else, and I found duplicity.
