planet.sabayonlinux.org: Well, this morning I was thinking that I need to blog a little bit more, so here I am. Things are going well on the Sabayon side, we released a nearly perfect miniEdition last week and that’s a good thing from the QA side. Talking about future releases:
OpenSUSE 10.3 final is due out in just a few days, so let's take a look at the progress. Folks have been testing this release candidate and posting their thoughts here and there. My own testing was delayed primarily due to the some of the joys of running Gentoo fulltime, but I was finally able to devote my full attention to openSUSE 10.3 RC1. As per my usual, I downloaded the DVD iso delta. This time it was 422 MB. I don't usually test everything with these developmental releases, but what I have tested is looking good.
phoronix: It is going on two years since support for Scalable Link Interface (SLI) was introduced into NVIDIA's Linux binary display driver. This support had come a year after it was officially launched and supported by the Windows ForceWare display driver and there were a number of problems. However, things have changed recently and in this article we compare the single and dual GPU performance under both operating systems.

foogazi.com: I’ve always been the guy my friends and family turn to with computer questions. I’ve also always been the guy my computer literate friends turn to with Linux questions. I always find myself answering the “Should I use Linux?” question with one simple answer: “Not if you want to play games. Stick with Windows.”
packt publishing: Linux4afrika has the objective of bridging the digital divide between the developed countries and the disadvantaged countries, especially in Africa, by supporting people getting access to information technology.

raiden's realm: Mario. Probably one of the best and most memorable of great classic games. It still thrills and excites even to this day in all its forms. So much so that it's still spawning new and exciting versions of our favorite plumber and his friends. But what if Mario wasn't a plumber? What if he were, say, a penguin? If he were, then you'd have Super Tux!

pcworld: The initial reaction to Symphony's release has been tepid at best, for plenty of good reasons. IBM's use of the Symphony name may be a surprise, but the OpenOffice-based offering, itself, is not.
OSWeekly: It's been a wild ride, but I have definitely not regretted my choice to make Ubuntu a major part of my life. As a full-time user, I have been charged by Windows and Linux user alike for not following their own lemming-like mindsets. And this has bothered me for some time now.
linux.com: At the large school in Mexico where I'm employed as a system manager, I proposed (and got) a Linux server to replace an old Windows 2000 file server and domain controller for the alumni. I then was faced with the task of adding 3,000 users to this new CentOS 5 server. I wasn't about to add thousands of users and their passwords one by one.
