webpronews: Firefox, the popular alternative to Microsoft's Internet Explorer browser is picking up steam worldwide, gaining one percent in market share in the past six months.
phoronix: Out of all of the Ubuntu derivative distributions, the one that's received the least amount of attention really has been Edubuntu. With a slogan of "Linux for Young Human Beings", Edubuntu is a Linux distribution designed for students and use in school environments.
ITPro: During the last three years Ubuntu has sprung from nothing to become the most popular desktop distribution of Linux. There are good reasons for Ubuntu's success. Ubuntu is clean and uncomplicated which makes it attractive to entry level users, without sacrificing the traditional Debian virtues of stability, flexibility and configurability, which has made it an enticing proposition for developers.
Linux Tutorials: No matter how stable the Linux kernel is, things like hardware failures can still lock up your system quite effectively. If you ever encounter a case like that, rebooting is pretty much the only option. However, there is rebooting and rebooting. This solution describes a way to reboot your system that will do things like terminating all processes, syncing the remounting the disks, in order to prevent damage as much as possible. This can save you a lot of fscking and data loss.
ZDNet: I’ve used SUSE Linux before, but that was way back in the day of version 9. Things have changed a lot since then. I’ve been happily using Kubuntu 7.04 for a while now, but wanted to begin using SUSE on a daily basis so that I can test their emerging set of educational software.
FOSSwire: Sometimes, especially when dealing with log files, you might want to peek at the start and/or end of a file to see just that bit of the file and not the whole thing. Of course, there are a couple of easy commands that allow you to do this.
Also: Change Ubuntu’s default paper size from A4 to Letter
freesoftware mag: Gnash is the Free Software Foundation’s alternative Apple Flash player. Version 0.8 is the third alpha release, and frankly, it rocks! It is also one of the first projects to be covered by the GPLv3.
cxotoday.com: All infrastructure, regardless of underlying platform, need to be secured and protected through multiple layers of security. Linux systems are not an exception. The inherent security advantages of Red Hat Enterprise Linux and the Application Stack combined with Symantec's Critical System Protection, gives Small and Medium Businesses (SMBs) a standards-based foundation for a variety of application workloads.
linux.com: Emacs 22.1 hit the street a month ago, a long-awaited update to the GNU project's customizable and extensible do-everything super-editor that has been six years in the making. Here's a look at what you'll find in the new version.
Debian Administration: This article describes how to use the new tunneling features of OpenSSH V 4.3 to establish a VPN between two Debian or Debian-like systems. Note that by tunneling I am referring to layer-3 IP-in-SSH tunneling, not the TCP connection forwarding that most people refer to as tunneling.
maximumpc.com: No matter which Linux distro you run, chances are it came with a magnificent little image editor called GIMP (GNU Image Manipulation Program). Unlike Paint and other free-with-your-OS image editors, GIMP is a full featured graphics app with a broad range of capabilities that rival those os Adobe Photoshop.
Raiden's Realm: Being an avid gamer who loves Linux, I felt that it would be a good idea to go try out the new Linux-Gamers.net live dvd. This is a live dvd built on Arch Linux and designed with one purpose in mind. Gaming.
debianadmin: Many of us would like to use our GMail accounts in Evolution, and to a lesser degree Thunderbird and KMail. Here is a step by step guide on how to configure Evolution, Thunderbird and KMail to access you GMail account.
A Useful Hack for Storing Text or Editable Pictures You Need to Reuse, in OpenOffice Impress PresentationsSubmitted by srlinuxx on Monday 2nd of July 2007 02:37:25 PM Filed under
OpenOffice.org Training, Tips, and Ideas: My friend Ben Horst wrote to me with a question about how to store editable content in a presentation that you reuse periodically. Like a few buttons formatted a particular way, text boxes, anything that can't easily be drawn and formatted and has to look a certain way. My answer was, well, kind of a hack, but I think it's useful enough to point out.
PC Advisor: Fedora 7.0 is the latest community-based Linux release from Red Hat. Fedora and Novell's OpenSuse are Ubuntu Linux's two chief "competitors". All three Linux distros are free downloads; all have vibrant online communities where you can go for tips, troubleshooting and advice. And all three Linux distributions will hook you up with a modern, friendly environment that you can start exploring right away.
computerworlduk: Core Linux developers are finding themselves managing and checking, rather than coding, as the number of kernel contributors grows and the contributor network becomes more complex.
