iTWire: The last time I looked at Slackware was nearly seven years ago; version 7.1 was thrown my way by a magazine and I was asked for a review. My usage of the distribution had ended early in 2000 when I moved to Debian after using Slackware 4.0 and then 7.0 for about a year.
information week: Microsoft says software that's licensed under GPLv3 is not covered by the patent protection deal it recently signed with desktop Linux distributor Linspire.
effiejayx’s blog: I have seen tons and tons of screenshots of Ubuntu screenshots on the web. So I decided to set up this little evolution for the Ubuntu desktops…
Also: ubuntu installation
Dana Blankenhorn: Intel has a new mobile Linux project dubbed Moblin (right). Sounds great until you realize there are a ton of other, similar frameworks under development. Nokia backs Maemo, Trolltech has Qtopia, and you’ll remember we profiled OpenMoko just a week ago. So what gives?
Also: Intel's Mobile Linux Initiative Misses Vendor Mark?
Linux Update: Fedora 8 is currently under development and is scheduled for release in November of this year (2007). This is a quick overview of the proposed features. As these are proposed features and it is still about 4 months from release some of these will change.
LinuxWorld: Forget software politics for a minute -- what does the new Samba licensing mean for the version you're actually running, and for the distribution that packages it for you? Samba maintainer Jeremy Allison explains.
gnomedesktop.org: The GnuCash development team proudly announces GnuCash 2.2.0, the new stable release of the GnuCash Open Source Accounting Software. With this new release series, GnuCash is available on Microsoft Windows for the first time, and it also runs on GNU/Linux, *BSD, Solaris and Mac OSX.
linux-watch: There's been no major improvements in Dell's Linux software support, but there have been small, but handy, improvements in Dell's support offerings. For Dell Ubuntu laptop users, an important addition is the availability of the Conexant modem driver for the Inspiron E1505n and 1420n.
Isotype: I have made a simple standard-dvd-video with a custom basic menu, using only free software on Ubuntu (Feisty) for pc i386. Ubuntu is a free operating system that, differently from Windows and MacOS has no licensing costs. Let’s make a comparison:
ubuntu-tutorials.com: Recently I’ve been on a GPG kick and have been interested in collecting, signing and using the GPG system more and more. One limitation that I was surprised to find in KGPG is that of the “Export Public Key : To Email” option.
Matt Asay: Roy Russo wonders if all open source companies are de facto monopolistic. Like many others that I respect (Dave Rosenberg, Lonn Johnston, President Bush, Oscar the Grouch), Roy believes that any market only has (ultimate) room for one purveyor of free (as in software).
FOSSwire: Hard drives are fragile and complex devices that do not have an infinite life span. Modern hard drives can however tell you quite a bit about how they’re doing and show you some statistics about themselves.
howtogeek: Let's say you have a directory with hundreds of files with the wrong file names, and you'd like to replace every filename containing test with prod. We can easily do this with the "for" command in bash.
oneopensource.it: Q: Does Linux infinge Microsoft patents? A: As far as we know, the answer is a resounding “no”, and it’s all just MS trying to counter-act the fact that they have problems competing with Linux on a technical side by trying to spread FUD.
seekingalpha: Ubuntu, for those who are new to open source software, is an increasingly popular version of Linux. Early proponents include Dell Inc. (DELL) and Intel Corp. (INTC). Here's a rundown of key open source developments investors should watch over the next few days.
This tutorial shows how you can enable Beryl on a PCLinuxOS 2007 desktop (the system must have a 3D-capable graphics card). With Beryl you can make your desktop use beautiful 3D effects like wobbly windows or a desktop cube.
linux.com: In the last two months I've been traveling a lot. During the same period my main desktop computer went belly up. I would have been in trouble without rsync at my disposal -- but thanks to my regular use of this utility, my data (or most of it, anyway) was already copied offsite just waiting to be used.
tectonic: In May this year Microsoft's Bill Gates showed off his expensive touch-sensitive table called Surface. Now the Linux world has a similar project under development and has released videos of it in action. While the DiamondTouch employs a different technology to Microsoft's TouchLight, the final result is even better.
LinuxWorld: Australian schools are subscribing to proprietary software - but the choice between proprietary and open source may have not been made on entirely equal ground.
desktoplinux: BlueWhite64 Linux v12.0, featuring a 188.8.131.52 Linux kernel with IA32-emulation, has been released on live CD and DVD ISOs. The distribution is aimed at pure 64-bit AMD64 Athlon, Opteron, Sempron, Turion, and Intel EM64T processors in desktops and servers.
