linux by examples: have discovered access delays every time I want to login to another remote machine through ssh. It took few seconds delay before it prompts me for password. It is so irritating! And very funny, it doesn’t happens on other windows ssh client.
Adrian Kingsley-Hughes: A few weeks ago I took a look at how Ubuntu 7.04 handled proprietary file formats such as MP3, WMA and QuickTime movies. Overall the support was good (although I couldn’t get QuickTime 7 movie support working) but it seriously bothered me that I had to resort to downloading and making use of codecs which are, well, to be blunt, illegal to use.
Nandu Pradhan: Presently, surfing the internet portal, checking bank balance online, booking railway tickets, searching jobs, logging in to a matrimonial site, or paying insurance premiums is often done by the application of open source Linux operating system.
Debian Administration: There are many methods used to fight spam which are tied to particular mailserver implementations. This means that unless you're using that specific software you cannot take advantage of them.

PCWorld: In April the latest version of Ubuntu Linux, Feisty Fawn, was released. In this article, we are turning our attention to Kubuntu.
coding horror: Every practicing programmer should read the Wikipedia article on software patents, if you haven't already. Many software companies are of the opinion that copyrights and trade secrets provide adequate protection against unauthorized copying of their innovations. However, the cost of developing a suitable portfolio of patents may be out of reach of many small software companies. If this sounds like a classic Mutually Assured Destruction arms race, that's because it is.
linux.com: The Firefox browser stores not only a user's bookmarks, history, saved forms, and usernames and passwords, but frequently also several extensions and themes. When you're switching computers or distro-hopping, replicating the browser environment can be tricky and time-consuming. But with the Firefox Environment Backup Extension (FEBE), you can back up and restore everything Firefox can hold, and then some.

softpedia: Did you ever live with the fear that somebody may break into your system one day and steal your files? Well, those days are over, because you can now have an entire encrypted operating system.
dague.livejournal: In the last month I decided to switch my primary Linux distro from Mandriva to Ubuntu. It will take me until the end of the year to fully switch over, mostly because my work laptop can't really afford the downtime, and it is scheduled for replacement come November anyway.
