the distrogue: Well, the promised uber-review is finally here. With the release of Ubuntu 7.04 (aka "Feisty Fawn"), a new fork of Ubuntu, named "Ubuntu Studio", was released, to go along with Kubuntu ("LinuKs for KHumans", released with 5.04), Edubuntu ("Linux for Young Humans", 5.10), and Xubuntu ("Linux for Gamers and Humans with Old Hardware", 6.06 LTS). It focuses on content creation, containing numerous tools for audio, video, and picture manipulation and creation.
Marc Wagner: This morning, I read a piece by my Education IT colleague, Chris Dawson, entitled Making “hamburger of Microsoft’s cash cow” and I was struck by one important observation: “Open Office needs to worry less about duplicating features of Office and more about “selling” itself as a viable piece of software in its own right. “
Phoronix: Last week the first open-source ATI R500 (Radeon X1000 series) driver had entered the world. This new driver (named the xf86-video-avivo) is very early into development and does not yet contain any 3D functionality or support for features that most end-users expect. Even with this very basic R500 driver, we couldn't help but to explore the Avivo driver for the past few days.
Pimp Your Linux: Are you interested in moving to Linux, but have no idea how the terminal works? Are you used to commands like “dir” in dos, but have no idea how to do them in Linux? This is a great guide to get you started with the basic commands.
the How-To Geek: How many times have you noticed a file sitting in a directory and wondered… where did this file come from? Or you are trying to tell a friend how to use a utility but he doesn't have it installed, and you can't remember what package you installed to get it.
Penguin Pete: Nothing's more disappointing than watching the dunce in the corner suddenly appear to be on the verge of getting his first clue, only to get distracted and go back to rooting in his nostril at the last second. Groans all around! Well, that zany SJVN is at it again.
Matt Asay: Dave, who was clearly being held back by me over at Open Sources, the Department of Defense's latest Software Tech News, and highlights some interesting factoids (though he fails to read pages 37-38, which focus on Alfresco :
the inquirer: NOVELL HAS FINALLY introduced Service Pack 1 for Suse Linux Enterprise Server 10, delivering improved virtualisation and quad-core support, it said.
tectonic: Automotive engineers Barloworld CVT Technologies have set up on online presence using open source software and the Drupal content management system.

Blog of Gentoo: I just read a digg story, titled "The Google Product That Could Kill Microsoft". So, here I am, thinking about it bit more. I will go over this in a little more detail:

geeky bits: Today I installed Skype in Ubuntu 7.04. There can be a number of problems running Skype in Ubuntu. Yet my biggest concern was getting my microphone working.
Vlogger is a little tool with which you can write Apache logs broken down by virtual hosts and days.
lockergnome blogs: Over and over, I hear people asking me “how do I get dual monitors working in Ubuntu“. Well today, I will show you (note the video) how to make this easy with a fairly modern NVIDIA card, two flat screen LCDs (one DVI, the other VGA) and a little understanding how getting two monitors working in Ubuntu Linux is a snap, once you understand the basics.
linux.com: WordNet is one of the best English language references available, but its command-line and rather primitive graphical interfaces don't really do it justice. WordNet would greatly benefit from a graphical front-end similar to Visual Thesaurus that allows you to view and explore the connections between different words. Fortunately, there is a tool that does exactly that.
Debian Administration: I was chatting with a colleague over IRC on Tuesday and he was complaining about the new update for Bind9 that broke his automatic blocking of ad servers. Naturally I was curious and asked him what he was talking about..
Paul Murphy: The trouble with the worker’s paradise idea is that it takes a dictator to make it happen - meaning that the happier the workers and useful idiots proclaim themselves, the worse off they are likely to actually be.
arstechnica: PC-BSD is not a Linux distribution, but rather what could be considered among the first major FreeBSD-based distributions to live outside of the official FreeBSD. Like most distributions, it has implemented certain features in a way that attempts to distinguish it from the competition, and I will focus mostly on these differences.
kahvipapu: Linux might not have as much games as Windows (or game consoles) but people enjoying this wonderful open source operating system can have fun with games too, as there are a lot of free games for Linux available, even some huge commercial ones. So what’s the state of Linux gaming?
vnunet.com: The Linux Foundation has formed a "Green Linux" initiative that will focus on reducing the open source operating system's power consumption.
