I love Mozilla and Google products, and I use them every single day; however, the ongoing discussions about how they should create more of a presence in the operating system world has baffled me.
A couple of weeks back, I was greeted by the news of a very interesting project having been moved to KDE base. The project in question is a file manager named Dolphin.

I have been neglecting the BSD line of operating systems lately, but a new release of DragonFlyBSD has come out and I figured this would be a good opportunity to try it out. I have never used DragonFly, but I used to use FreeBSD extensively (I still have it running a few servers) and I’ve also used OpenBSD and NetBSD in the day.
What is DragonFlyBSD?
1: Your purpose
I found something this evening in passing that I wanted to pass on to the rest of you. It’s a small fix that will allow the Cube to function properly with the current setup of Feisty and the desktop effects. Currently you can get the wobbly windows but no Cube.
In any event, try the tip below to get the Cube to function if you’d like to stick with Compiz (vs Beryl).
DELL currently offers Linux as an option for certain laptop and desktop models. Talk is that this service may be expanded to all models. This is a good thing, of course. Results of a recent survey by DELL show that more than 70% of over 100.000 respondents want to use Linux for home and office! What has been keeping companies like DELL away from this?

This is my first installation of Ulteo, the Debian (ubuntu) based Linux created by Gael Duval.
I will continue experimenting with it, and see how it performs with WiFi in a laptop, an IBM T30 is the only one I have.
Fedora is often called a non-community distribution because it is heavily supported by Red Hat and Red Hat has Veto rights in the board. Also, together with claims that Ubuntu is no Community distribution either it raises the question who and what defines the word community in this regard.
We are here today to talk about the developers of the KDE-Edu Project. The purpose of this interview is to feature and present their work and motivation, which is often not as well-known or regarded as other, more prominent work within the KDE project.

The second most popular web browser in the world, Firefox, is a beautiful, but heavy machine. Its biggest attraction are tabs, flexible bookmarks and RSS management and extensions.
