At Phoronix we are constantly running Linux benchmarks. With an increasing number of new Linux users trying out Linux for the first time on their old computers, we have been asked to conduct some benchmarks using popular desktop Linux distributions on older hardware.
helios: Like most people, Ed is a computer user...a novice computer user. He has a set number of tasks he assigns to his computer and rarely if ever deviates from them. That's not because he wants to, but like most computer users, it's all he knows how to do.
cosmiclog: 30 years ago astronomer Jerry Ehman was looking over a printout of radio data from Ohio State University's Big Ear Radio Observatory when he saw a string of code so remarkable that he had to circle it and scribble "Wow!" in the margin. The printout recorded an anomalous signal so strong that it had to come from an extraordinary source.
ubuntu geek: If you have a Bluetooth Keyboard and Mouse here is the procedure to follow howto setup in ubuntu.
the register: Some of Opera's long-term bets are beginning to pay off. This week we caught up with Opera founder and CEO Jon von Tetzchner to discuss this, and some of the thornier challenges facing the company. So we started with a biggie - was the web leaving Opera behind?
Vincent Danen: Last week I bought Guitar Hero II with the guitar controller. I brought it home and really got into it. Had to move the PS2 out of my office or I'd get no work done.
bloggernews.net: One good thing about Ubuntu is that it’s webbrowser is Firefox (Opera is also available). There are a lot of these extensions available, but I’ll just list the few I use every day. Look around and see what you like and try them. Most (but not all) work on the Linux version of Firefox.
coding horror: I started out in early 2004. As a result, I've developed some rather strong opinions about what makes blogs work so well, and what makes blogs sometimes not work so well. I'd like to share some of the latter with you today, in a piece I call Thirteen Blog Clichés.
linux.com: The OSI License-Discuss mailing list has been ablaze for the past few days since Microsoft submitted its Permissive License (MS-PL) to the OSI [Open Source Initiative] for official open source license approval. Chuck Swiger, an active member of the license-discuss community, thinks that lets the GPL out of the mix.
Linux Journal: At last we reach the final installment of this series, the question & answer stage in which we'll consider some of the common problems encountered with audio and MIDI on Linux, along with some common and perhaps not-so-common solutions to those problems. We've looked at some indispensable items for your Linux system troubleshooting toolkit, now let's see how they are applied.
Penguin Pete: Yes, you read the title correctly. I only run FOSS systems, including GNU/Linux, BSD, Open Solaris, Minix, GNU/HURD, and Plan Nine From Bell Labs. I'll even give a favorable nod to Apple hardware if I see it running FOSS software. But I am adamantly opposed to running a single byte of Microsoft code under my roof or associated with my business. Yet, I don't hate them.
Matt Asay: IBM trumpets open standards so much that it's easy to forget the company cares deeply about open source, too. I much prefer this latter emphasis, incidentally, because IBM is so good at playing the "open" standards game - it's much harder to game an open-source license.
The Linux Movement: In my last post I made a quick little video of some of the New applets being developed for Awn. But there was one I couldn't get to work at the time, and that was the Awn Gnome Main Menu Applet. But Guess what i got it workign now....
dailytech: Dell and Lenovo are the first two companies to recently offer pre-installed open source Linux distribution on PCs and notebooks, but I highly doubt they will be the last manufacturers to take the plunge...
All about Linux: I have faced a number of times the prospect of entering the web address of the online repositories just because I some how tampered the contents of the sources.list file which is residing in /etc/apt/ location.
richardfcrawley.wordpress: This installment will review applications that serve as learning and hobby tools. It will range from beneath the surface of the Earth to orbiting the Earth.
Linux Today: The current debate about whether the open source community should trust Microsoft as the Redmond company continues to make friendlier overtures towards open source practices is, to me, a very interesting discussion.
swik.net: In the short amount of time that Ubuntu has been around (3 years, with 6 releases) it has attained an impressive level of popularity and growth. I believe this success is due to some critical improvements that Ubuntu has implemented when compared to other Linux distributions.
freesoftware mag: Few events have created more fodder for the blogosphere, more fuel for Microsoft critics and more emotional responses than the Microsoft patent deals with Novell, Linspire and Xandros. While putting together a list of things people hate about these deals is easy, generating a list of positive aspects is much harder.
matt hartley blog: I have written a set of scripts that will allow you to backup both your Evolution and Firefox data, allow for flawless transfer to a new Ubuntu box without any hassles, keeps everything in one set of ‘master folders’, makes recovery a snap, cleans up after itself and did I mention it is completely brainlessly simple to use?
