freesoftwaremagazine: A few weeks ago, I promised to explain how to create your own custom live CD with Fedora’s new tools. Well, last week Fedora 7 was launched and all the tools you need are available in the repositories. This even includes a brand new graphical tool, put together by the people at Fedora Unity, called Revisor, which will allow you to spin your own live CD or installation material in an unbelievably user friendly manner.
This tutorial describes how to install Xen 3.1.0 on a Debian Etch system (i386). Xen lets you create guest operating systems (*nix operating systems like Linux and FreeBSD), so called virtual machines or domUs, under a host operating system (dom0).
linuxgames: Computer-room four star generals are probably disappointed with the lack of Real-Time-Strategy games for Linux; the last commercial release worth playing was either Introversion's own Darwinia, Tribal Trouble, or Linux Game Publishing's Majesty. Before that, there was Kohan. In the commercial realm we are missing out on great games like Company of Heroes or Supreme Commander. The most recent indie RTS games of note were Gate 88 and Galcon. Is Defcon worth playing? Let's find out together!
desktoplinux: Novell's openSUSE project has launched a new initiative dedicated to advancing the public awareness of the popular Linux distribution in the educational community.
abclinuxu.cz: Lubos Dolezel has interviewed Nvidia's Director of Unix Software, Andy Ritger. Topics include NVIDIA Linux graphic driver improvement, nvnet driver development, and community relations.
I keep upgrading my Home PC with better peripherals to make it to breathe better for long time. The recent one is a nVidia Graphics card of model 6200A - 256MB - 8X from Zebronics. I have installed Ubuntu 7.04 (Feisty Fawn) for home productive purpose. Here is the steps I did to install this Graphics card in Ubuntu.
bryceharrington.org: The day Dell announced I ordered one of their laptops, and today it arrived. I popped open the box to see what's included. The only Ubuntu-specific thing included was the CD. I half-expected to see the 'DELL' logo on the blue-shirted guy.
zdnet blogs: Sebastian Wagner has released an open source project called openmeetings. openmeetings is billed as a “video conferencing and group collaboration application” much like Adobe Connect. This one is built on top of OpenLaszlo with the new streaming media support and Red5, and open source media sever.
CLICK: By making "intellectual property" deals with commercially oriented distributors of Linux, Microsoft isn't alienating anybody it hasn't turned off already.

Issue 18 is here and with it another bunch of great articles all about free software. We have Andrew Min showing us how to dual-boot Windows and Kubuntu. There's Mitch Meyran's in depth article on 3D desktops and Xavier Calbet's one on Fractal generation.
sys-con.com: My recent switch to a single-boot Ubuntu setup on my Thinkpad T60 simply floors me on a regular basis. It has some elegance to it - bet you never heard that about a Linux desktop before.
sys-con.com: OK, so let's cut right to what everybody wants to know. In the two quarters since its hackles-raising deal with Microsoft was signed in November, some 49,000 SUSE certificates have been activated. They are worth $91 million. Microsoft could buy more. Unless of course the GPLv3 intervenes and the tentative grandfather clause currently protecting the deal gets dropped.

LinuxWorld: The Mozilla Foundation said last week it has patched several serious security flaws in the popular Firefox browser, bugs that also affect the SeaMonkey browser and the Thunderbird e-mail application.

shift+backspace: For those of you who use Ubuntu and have not heard of Automatix, stop reading and go get it! Automatix contains many dozens of applications that help make the initial Ubuntu set up so much easier.
This month's issue of Linux Gazette is ready and online. This month's highlights include Creating an Unkillable Process, Installing Perl Modules as a Non-Root User, and Writing PostgreSQL Functions in C.
There are valid and compelling reasons why one might want to use only Open Source Software. Avoids any patent or IP legal issues, better security, and encourages innovation are just a few. Many, like myself, would like to be completely Open Source if it didn't mean losing too much functionality. Can your computer environment be entirely Open Source? What might we give up if we chose that path?
Raiden's Realm: Today's section, System Administration, covers a lot of administration of various features of KDE, including how it handles logins, date and time, and more. This is not for the fait of heart, and you can make a mess of things to the point of even locking yourself out of KDE.
SolidOffice: One of the other top ideas on Dell’s IdeaStorm website was to preinstall OpenOffice (and Firefox, and some other FOSS apps) on the Windows boxes Dell sells. From a simple end user standpoint, this option would benefit a larger number of Dell customers.
linux.com: Gmail may be an excellent Web-based email application, but there is no easy way to use it with privacy tools like GnuPG. The FireGPG extension for Firefox is designed to solve this problem. It integrates nicely into Gmail's interface and allows you to sign and encrypt not only email messages but also text snippets from any Web page.
internetnews.com: Xandros and Microsoft today announced they have entered into an agreement that, on the surface, is remarkably similar to the one forged between Microsoft and Novell last year.
