kmandla.wordpress.com: Ordinarily Zenwalk is mentioned in the same breath as distros like Xubuntu or Slax, as a full-featured alternative to something like Ubuntu, that generally has a quicker feel to it. I have suggested it to many people myself and for those same reasons, but this time my own advice turned out to be a disappointment.

Linux Journal: OpenOffice.org Writer is better at justification than most word processors and desktop publishing programs, but you need to be prepared to work at it. Before you set your paragraphs to full justification, you need to consider whether it's an appropriate choice for your layout. Then you need to set it up correctly, and be willing to tweak the results if you want results that are as professional as possible.
softpedia: A computer mouse is no longer a simple object as nowadays it may come in a variety of shapes and sizes, colors and tones, bigger and smaller and sporting exotic or more common features. Among the shapes that a computer mouse can take these days is the shape of a little happy penguin, looking especially for those Linux lovers out there.
arstechnica: For a system that hasn't even shipped yet, the ASUS Eee PC is certainly generating its share of hype. According to DigiTimes, the Eee could effectively decimate the UMPC market.
FOSSwire: You finally got your Linux environment to crash. Ctrl+Alt+Backspace does nothing, nor do the F-keys. You know you shouldn’t have installed that bad driver, but you did it anyway. So you reach for the power button. Stop.
O'Reilly ONLamp: One of the recent posts that Jonathan made was in response to a flame by Linus. In his response to accusations, by Linus, that Sun was being disingenuous about truly open sourcing its ZFS file system, he mentioned that not only was Sun going to open source everything, but that they were going to do it under GPL3.
thelinuxmovement: So awn now allows people to use python for creating applets. And with that announcement lots of new applets and such have been coming out for Awn. One such new applet is the Awn Python Clock.
silwenae.org: As a Foresight user, I’m very excited about the future of PackageKit, which was highlighted in the August Foresight newsletter.
urs' blog: I’m happy to tell you that I have successfully finished my SoC project, KRDC. The resulting work is already in trunk and included in the to KDE 4.0 beta releases. Try the new KRDC out!
phoronix: All week we have talked about the performance of the 8.41 display driver and the performance on various ATI graphics cards from the R300 series to the latest R600 graphics card. In some of these articles, we have briefly commented on the image quality, but in this article we will be looking exclusively at the image quality while gaming with the ATI Radeon HD 2900XT 512MB under Linux.
All about Linux: Recently while visiting a friends house, I ran into a situation where I had to use his computer. His computer is a rather old one which he has seldom maintained properly. He still has Windows 98 loaded on it. That was when I felt the need for a solution where in I could use a standalone version of my favorite applications.
linux.com: One of the more humorous ad series today is the Geico "caveman" commercials, featuring a caveman complaining about the stereotype of something being "so easy a caveman could do it." Since we don't have to worry about offending cavemen (or cavewomen), companies can safely poke humor at that demographic group and not worry about alienating anyone. However, you might want to think twice about saying "it's so easy your mom can do it."
pinderkent.blogsavy: Several days back, Opera 9.50 Alpha was released. I’ve been using this alpha release for the past few days. And I have to say, I am quite impressed!
vertito.blogspot: Here's a document entry on managing and connecting to Windows (TM) based operating systems (Windows 2000/2003, XP Terminal servers, Windows NT) from Linux box using a remote desktop tool called RDesktop.
linux insider: University libraries are natural users of open source software, which offers a good fit with open access to information and collaborative working. Open source solutions are beginning to encroach on learning and library operations, more often than not without the say-so of the librarians.
frederic99.blogspot: As I have just said I use Linux on my R500. Why Linux over Vista? How does Linux fare on the R500? Quite well I must say.
anerroroccurred.blogspot.com: Okay, I've spent several days wrestling with Damn Small Linux. It's a very cool distribution, but unfortunately, I could not get the wireless card in my laptop to work with it. So, I went back through my list of live CD distros and found . . . Puppy Linux.
hasseno.blog.com: I introduced an Ubuntu distro to my friend, stating that he try it out, seeing that it is by far, the most popular distro among the rest. The installation went fine, then we browsed the internet, and some pages are seemingly missing some, since it needed plugins for it to display the page correctly. There has to be a better alternative.
