Raiden's Realm: If there's one thing that drives me nuts about the current operating system models is that there is no one single file system that works across all operating systems, fills all the needs of everyone out there and is stable beyond mention to boot.
People's Daily Online: In recent years, the world's leading software and hardware providers such as IBM and Intel are rushing to do compatibility testing and quality authentication with China's local Linux products.
freesoftwaremagazine: Some would say 3D desktops are useless fluff; some swear by them. This article gives you an overview of today’s 3D desktop options, and how they can help you be more productive.
kernelTRAP: Posting a series of three patches, Nick Piggin announced that he was working on a rewrite of the buffer layer which he calls fsblock, "the name is fsblock because it basically ties the fs layer to the block layer." As to just what the buffer layer is, Nick explained.
the Inquirer: DEAR MICROSOFT, Please stop your whining, it is getting quite annoying. We do realise you have an OS called MeII (aka Vista) and it isn't selling. Please accept my sympathies but not my dollars, you lost me and all my clients as a customer. I am going Linux now.
Josh Saddler: As promised in a previous entry, here's the first half of a checklist I've been writing to help me evaluate other distributions. No doubt I think of more things when examining a distro, but here's a good start. For this first part of the series, I'll question the distribution's hardware support and its package manager.
OSWeekly: In the past, we have explored the reality that, in many forms, the much anticipated "Google OS" has long since already arrived. But recently, there have been strong indicators that Google may be positioning for something more. And today, we will explore what this might look like if it were to actually happen.
OSWeekly: First we had Novell jumping onboard with Microsoft, and then came a cooperative deal with Xandros. Now we have Linspire following the trend and I’m left wondering: should we be worried? Many of you may point out that it is merely a handful of companies, but I see this differently. I see this as Microsoft trying to worm their way into the Linux market without making any real solid commitment to the users themselves.
about.com: find is a powerful command line tool for identifying sets of files based on their names. With locate you can quickly find all files containing a given string.
shift+backspace: Recently there has been plenty of news regarding the alpha releases of the next openSUSE release, 10.3. While I will be taking a look at the Alpha 5 or Alpha 6 release in the near future, many users have requested a review of openSUSE 10.2.
gnomejournal: Stefan Kost describes GStreamer features that have been implemented and that are in the works, and he steps users through setting up an example with which to play.
Peter P. Parker: This is a guide on how Linux and especially the KDE desktop could revolutionize the world of computers and operating systems and bring a major breakthrough so Linux would go mainstream.
Alan Zeichick Weblog: If the Linux community has a hero other than Linus Torvalds, it’s Mark Shuttleworth, a dot-com gazillionaire who started the Ubuntu Project, and who funds it out of his own pocket.
financialexpress: The world of corporate computing seems to be preparing for a paradigm shift. Free and open source software movement claims to be making fresh inroads into corporates. Microsoft has also upped its ante, claiming lower cost of ownership and the patents open source software violates.
Groklaw: A Groklaw member who attended last week's Second Annual Open Source Summit in Boston has written up a report for us. He describes what each panel or talk was about, so you will know which you want to listen to.
kdedevelopers.org: In case you missed it, Gwenview has moved to kdegraphics. The KDE4 port of Gwenview is more a rewrite than a port, at least from the user perspective. It's already usable in its current state.
jonas.io: I have notebook with a Intel HDA soundchip, it was not fully supported by the alsa 1.0.13 drivers that came with openSuSE 10.2 and no updated RPM’s was available. so I manually had to upgrade them to 1.0.14.
A week ago we announced our intention to pull together what we (in those ancient days), termed as “LASnix” (aka “Linux Action Show *nix”). We’ve also decided on an official name for the project, that being “Jupiter.”
