joeblog.info: Naturally, I had to give it it try, even if only in VMWare. What follows is not a complete test, but only some impressions.
Those that know me or my work in the Linux community know I always see the good in Linux distributions and open source software. I'm a "glass-is-half-full" kinda gal where Linux is concerned. But I'm having a hard time finding anything good at all to say about Ubuntu. Why the h-e-double_hockey_sticks is it so popular? It's the next thing to running nothing there is.
This tutorial shows how you can set up a Slackware 12 GNU/Linux desktop that is a full-fledged replacement for a Windows desktop, i.e. that has all the software that people need to do the things they do on their Windows desktop.
groklaw: IP Innovation LLC has just filed a patent infringement claim against Red Hat and Novell. It was filed October 9, case no. 2:2007cv00447, IP Innovation, LLC et al v. Red Hat Inc. et al, in Texas. Where else? The patent troll magnet state.
computerworld.com.au: You can download a complete version of Ubuntu Linux from the Ubuntu website. The ISO (or CD) image is around 700MB. Two versions of Ubuntu are supported: 6.06 and 7.04 -- we're using 7.04 for this walkthrough. To follow suit, select Desktop Edition, Ubuntu 7.04.
linux.com: If you spend most of your time in OpenOffice.org, you might want to be able to manage to-do lists and tasks without leaving the comfort of the office suite. Since Writer doesn't have such a feature, you can create your own no-frills task tool and at the same time sharpen your OOoBasic skills.
Bruce Byfield: Long ago, I lost any queasiness about the command line. I’m not one of those who think it’s the only way to interact with their computers, but it’s a rare day that I don’t use it three or four times on my GNU/Linux system. To average users, the suggestion that they use the command line – or the shell, or the terminal, or whatever else you want to call it is only slightly less welcome than the suggestion that they go out and deliberately contract AIDS.

/home/liquidat: Some days ago I looked at the Kopete roadmap and saw that it was updated recently. It now states that full Decibel support won’t be there before KDE 4.2, but that Telepathy will be supported as a plugin in KDE 4.1. The most important news is that the new version Kopete 1.0 will not make it into KDE 4.0.
internetnews.com: So Microsoft is waving the patent stick. Again. Is there any substance to his latest claims about open source and Microsoft's patents? Somehow, that part got lost in the hyped-up coverage of his latest threats.
c|net: Two years after acquiring the company that developed the AppArmor security software for Linux, Novell has laid off team members behind the project, CNET News.com has learned.
steelgryphon.com: Alex seems to have stirred up some debate regarding visual refresh on Linux. I wanted to talk a little about why its not as big of a priority right now, and longer-term thinking I’ve been doing about Linux.
Terminally Incoherent: Ever wondered how to sync up your Kontact Calendar with your Google Calendar? Me too! But I figured it out. Below you can find step by step instructions on how to set it up.
Red Hat Magazine: By and large, most Red Hat Linux systems will have Bash as the default shell. Bash is a darn great shell, but this article is about another equally great shell, called Z-Shell, that has most of the attributes of Bash, but in some cases goes the extra mile to give you the flexibility to customize your shell more than Bash allows.
iTWire: Linux users don't accept criticism of their chosen distribution easily - that's probably why a number of reactions to my last piece about openSUSE tended to be somewhat short of making a point.
Also: More openSUSE 10.3 Numbers
SearchEnterpriseLinux.com blog: As is becoming a regular occurrence these days, it seems, a few news outlets out there this week are starting to beat the “Ubuntu pre-installed on the server” drum again as the 7.10 release of that operating system draws near (it’s October 18, fyi).
LinuxWorld: By opening its .Net Framework libraries Microsoft is again responding to the leadership of the Open Source community, according to industry consultants and developers, but remaining on the back foot.

linux.com: OpenSUSE 10.3 was released last week, and I quickly downloaded the new version to update my two openSUSE boxes. Here's a chronicle of the updates and some problems that surfaced during the process.
tombuntu: The upcoming Ubuntu 7.10 release will include Compiz Fusion by default. “Desktop effects by default in Gutsy - how Compiz Fusion enhances Ubuntu’s desktop of version 7.10” explains how Compiz is integrated, the default configurations, what happens when Compiz fails, why Compiz by default is good, and why this might be the right time for it. If you are wondering what Compiz by default means for you, this is what you want to read.
harald-hoyer.de: Every month the discussion about faster booting of Fedora appears on the mailing lists. Here is a comparison of Fedora to openSUSE with some suggestions and improvements.
