watchingthenet.com: For Windows users setting up and sharing printers on Windows Computers, the process is simple. On Ubuntu or Kubuntu the process is also very easy. This tutorial will show you how to setup and connect your Ubuntu or Kubuntu computer to a shared printer on Windows XP or Vista.
besttechie.net: Yesterday evening, I was in need of something to do and every now and then I get these urges to try out Linux as a desktop OS again. I saw that they had released a new beta version of Ubuntu (the Gusty Gibbon release - which is scheduled for final release sometime in October) and decided I’d try it out in a dual boot with Vista Ultimate and Ubuntu.
kmandla.wordpress.com: Against my better judgement, I tried to install Gobuntu off a daily build CD because I wanted to get a look at it, and to see if I would have any hardware issues with it.
Linux Electrons: Yesterday, the Linux based One Laptop Per Child was presented an INDEX: AWARD for winning the Community category. The INDEX: AWARD is presented every other year, and in addition to the glory, each award comes with a €100 000 prize. INDEX: AWARD operates with five categories, which refer to the context for which the designs are intended: body, home, work, play and community.
arstechnica: Late last night we started receiving reports from readers experiencing problems with Windows Genuine Advantage authentication. Users of both Windows XP and Windows Vista were writing to say that they could not validate their installations using WGA, and one user even said that his installation was invalidated by the service.
blogbeebe: I've been reading lately about how Dell is slated to sell just 20,000 PCs with Linux loaded on them. I've seen that number thrown repeatedly into the faces of an uncaring blogosphere by folks who obviously have no love for either Linux of Ubuntu.
Following the Edu Day at aKademy, I got a Classmate PC which is a machine Intel developed. The laptop has a Suse system on it with KDE 3.5.1 and my goal is to see how KDE-Edu applications run on it.
laptopcom: If you are eager to have one Asus Eee mini laptop you can visit NCIXUS Retailer. They offer 5 models with different 5 prices that you can order. The retailer says that your order shipment takes 1 to 2 weeks.
blogbeebe: After booting this release of Ubuntu on a machine with an ATI graphics card, I moved over to my other box that has an nVidia-based Gigabyte 7600 GS AGP video card. I had no idea how Ubuntu would handle this card in a live situation.
kernelTRAP: In the continuining discussion about how GCC treats the volatile keyword, Linus Torvalds noted, "I just have a strong suspicion that 'volatile' performance is so low down the list of any C compiler persons interest, that it's never going to happen. And quite frankly, I cannot blame the gcc guys for it."
the distrogue: Windows and OS X aren't perfect (or BSD or Haiku or whatever), but there are distributions that would be better suited to a complete Linux newbie than Ubuntu. Arguably two of the best are PCLinuxOS and Mint.
liquidat: For quite some time know the KDE team thought about having a KDE 4 release party some months after the original KDE 4.0 release. According to that plan the KDE 4.0 release in October will be official, but not press-release-official - that one will be celebrated some months later.
Xenh12@PCLinuxOS: where PCLinuxOS has a real edge over a distro like Ubuntu, is when it comes to the programs available in synaptic.
dasman’s World: I can only take so many mysterious disappearances of my wireless network. It turns out, exactly 146 disappearances! So, when my Vista laptop decided for the 147th time that I was connected to my wireless network “kind of”, I decided enough was enough!

The Linux Movement: Now a little while ago I posted about a new Awn mock up that looked really great designed by Awn forum user Meek. Well to be exact I posted about it on August 15. Now why is that date important? Thats about when the idea was first posted on the Awn forum. This is now 9 days later, and we have a working preview of this mock-up already! Now that is progress!
consortiuminfo.org: This just in: China has unanimously voted "no, with comments" on OOXML. As I had noted in an earlier blog entry, China had been signalling some displeasure with Microsoft and OOXML in recent weeks, via Xinhua, the official government news agency, so this is not totally a surprise.
