/home/liquidat: The KDE 4.0 Beta 3 release was shifted again - the tagging will be this Monday. If everything works out we will see KDE 4.0 Beta 3 this week.
Tristan Rhodes: I feel that is important for me to further analyze the benefits of open source software. This post should provide a more balanced view of open source and the intrinsic benefits that free software provides.
how-to-geek: After reading a post from my friend Daniel about the new release of MonoDevelop, I decided to try and install it… which is when I realized that the installation from source is so painful I'd better figure it out and share it with everybody else.
kernelTRAP: "It looks to be about 2.1% increase in time to do the make/mount/unmount operations with the marker patches in place and no blktrace operations," Alan Brunelle summarized some benchmarks testing the overhead of the kernel markers patches.

blog.platinumsolutions.com: Ubuntu works great with my Dell D820 Laptop and had no problems with my sound card, video driver, and power management. I was definitely a happy camper so I thought I'd share how to create a dual boot environment with Ubuntu + XP.
njpatel.blogspot.com: Well there you have it, Awn 0.2 has been released! With over six months since the last release, you'd think we were working on something as complicated as Gnome, but I think there are enough new features to show where the time has gone .
ariya.blogspot: I know I should be doing something "useful", but the fresh-from-oven OpenSUSE 10.3 is just too good to skip. Thus, I decided to waste a weekend to try it. In short: it's very solid and attractive, without doubt the best OpenSUSE release so far.
polishlinux: ROX is one of the genuinely interesting file managers available for the major platforms - GNU/Linux, Unix, Mac OS X, and Windows (under Cygwin). As can be inferred from the manager’s website, ROX-Filer is a project aimed to move the best features of RISC OS onto Linux and Unix platforms. Its small footprint and configurability are its unquestionable hallmarks.
Pain and Glory: “GNUstep is a cross-platform, object-oriented framework for desktop application development." Anyone who has used NeXTSTEP, OPENSTEP or Mac OS X knows the inherent power and quality of this API. So one would think that GNUstep would be quite popular.
Luis Villa’s Blog: Having had a good week, I’m playing with toys a little bit today. (Sadly, not enough free time to make it to GNOME Summit.)1 Some notes, forthwith, from Fedora 8 test 3, with a few supplements as well from a month old Ubuntu Tribe CD.2
distrogue.blogspot.com: f you're reading this on Kubuntu, then I honestly feel sorry for you. It's not that I hate KDE (in fact, I love it, even v3.5), it's just how badly misused it is in Kubuntu.
linuxmini: Wifi-radar is a tool intended to configure easily your interface wifi, and will allow you to connect to your wifi network. Wifi-radar is available in the menu Xfce, in the Network submenu.
moving-innovations.com/blog: When the server arrived earlier this week I thought it’d be a matter of simply popping in a Gentoo minimal install CD, running through the installation steps, and be done with it. So I popped in the CD. Rebooted the machine. Nothing happened.
o'reilly onlamp: How many open source relational databases can you name? I can already imagine many of you saying “bulls**t”, what about MySQL and PostgreSQL?” (to name just two), but those are just databases, not relational databases.
thepanoramablog.blogspot.com: Good news: with openSuSE 10.3, most dependent libraries of Hugin 07.beta are in the correct state, so here's a quick roundup how to get and install:
nixcraft: So how do you find out how fast is your hard disk under Linux? Is it running at SATA I (150 MB/s) or SATA II (300 MB/s) speed w/o opening computer case or chassis?
iTWire: A look through most department store catalogues reveals a bevy of alleged “deal” laptops; you know the type – cheap and cheerful, sub-$1,000 – but far from bleeding-edge specs. These may be naff at resource-hungry Windows apps but can be a great Linux machine for no extra cost. But can you check out any hardware gotchas prior to purchase, and be sure the Penguin will run?
kmandla.wordpress.com: Part of the real benefit of Ubuntu and the ‘forums, is that so many people from so many backgrounds and cultures are drawn together by a common interest. bapoumba is a moderator who has a distinctly different perspective on many of the issues that surround Linux, Ubuntu and the community that has grown up with it.
UNetbootin is a tool that allows you to install various Linux distributions (Ubuntu, Fedora, Mandriva, OpenSuSE, Debian, ArchLinux) from a Windows or a Linux desktop over the internet (i.e., you do not need to burn the Ubuntu, Fedora, ... CDs).
