Anyone else notice lately how good Wine is getting? No, of course I'm not talking about the beverage. Last year, Wine would only "sorta" work with the ClassXP software. This school year is a different story.
softwareinreview.com: Mandriva Linux has a history of inconsistency; one release will be superb, and the next one will be so bug-ridden and feature-weak that it's unusable. True to form, Mandriva 2008.0 is an excellent release, following the terrible 2007.1, and the just as excellent 2007.0.
arstechnica: Mozilla user interface design specialist Alex Faaborg wrote a lengthy blog entry last week about plans for the Firefox 3 visual refresh. Faaborg explained the importance of creating applications that visually integrate with the rest of the operating system and displays screenshots of the new default Firefox 3 themes for Mac OS X and Vista.
desktoplinux: In 13 Reasons why Linux won't make it to a desktop near you, we reviewed Linux as a marketing case study. In this piece, we take a good look at the product to find out why it has thrived despite its troubled childhood.

- On Your Marks, Get Set...Gutsy Gibbon!
thenixedreport: It use to be that when a Linux program came out it was geared to run on Fedora, PCLinuxOS, SUSE, and Gentoo Linux. This was good because anyone could use it on any distribution. Then Ubuntu got more and more popular. Why I still can’t figure out.
matt asay: I wrote a week ago about the rich opportunities that await those that end up leaving Novell, whether by choice or by RIF. Today, I got an email from an old friend who left Novell last year. Funny what happens once you shake off the spell Novell weaves:
theregister.co.uk: Most notably for the client crowd is the production version of Compiz. It's mostly eye candy to be sure, although the Compiz code serves a larger purpose. "I believe we're the first (Linux) distribution to deliver that out of the box."
arstechnica: Last month, Google rolled out a new API for YouTube based on GData, making it possible for developers to use Google's existing client libraries to interact with the video service.
downloadsquad.com: Ubuntu founder Mark Shuttleworth held a conference call with reporters today in advance of the October 18th release. Canonical is set to ship Ubuntu 7.10 Gutsy Gibbon on Thursday. The latest version of the popular Linux distribution packs a bunch of new features.

Rudd-O: Curious about how the next generation of KDE looks like? Be curious no more: here’s a bleeding-edge (really, sometimes it bleeds) look at the latest — 3.94 — beta of KDE 4.
linux.com: For several years Puppy Linux has been breathing life into old and dated hardware, but instead of being just another minimalistic distribution, Puppy boasts smart features that save resources without cutting down the number of applications. The latest major Puppy release, Puppy 3.00, continues this trend by making the less than 100MB distro binary-compatible with Slackware 12 and providing other enhancements.
phoronix: We've had repeated requests for a power comparison between Windows and different Linux distributions. Well, in this article are the first set of results from that testing. We've compared the power consumption of Microsoft Windows XP, Windows Vista, Fedora 7, and Ubuntu 7.10.
linux journal: Development of native Linux audio plugins and softsynths may not be so relentlessly rapid as it is in the Windows and Mac sound software worlds, but new things do appear. This week I profile a cool new (well, relatively new) Linux softsynth, William Weston's Phase Harmonic Advanced Synthesis EXperiment, also known as Phasex.
blogs.the451group: The Open Source Initiative has announced that the OSI Board has approved the Microsoft Public License (Ms-PL) and the Microsoft Reciprocal License (Ms-RL) as satisfying the criteria of the Open Source Definition, following their submission in August.
The KDE Project today announced the immediate availability of KDE 3.5.8, a maintenance release for the latest generation of the most advanced and powerful free desktop for GNU/Linux and other UNIXes.
digital arts: The BBC and Adobe has announced a strategic relationship that will see the BBC adopt Adobe's Flash Player software, allowing Mac and Linux users to use the broadcaster's iPlayer streaming video service for the first time.
ExtremeTech: If you take the time to look around, you'll find lots of software for both Windows and GNU/Linux that meet these specifications. To help you evaluate the best choice for your needs, we'll skim off the cream of the crop.
I raved about the new Mandriva 2008.0 Power Pack as I was truly smitten. I switched to Mandriva from Windows fulltime back when it was known as Mandrake, so I've followed it's releases fairly closely. I found Mandriva 2008 Power Pack to be the best release since Mandrake 7.2. But what about the Free version? We all know the advertised differences, but were there going to be major differences in performance and stability? I set out to see.
