gruman: Mandriva, on the heels of trying to gain popularity in the office environment has released a desktop that can rival its opponents like the Micorsoft sponsored Suse Linux Enterprise Desktop (SLED) and RedHat's Fedora desktop.
DesktopLinux: Some people seem to have a short circuit in their minds when they try to explain why Windows has such an enormous desktop market share. Some of them have the delusion that Windows is technically better than the competition. No, Microsoft wins because it does whatever it needs to do to win. If that means strong-arming the PC companies, so be it. If that means breaking the law, that's fine too.
In this week's KDE Commit-Digest: Plasma continues to mature, with improvements to the Twitter applet (and the creation of a complementary data engine), and the adoption of a common visual style for Plasmoids, and the integration of support for SuperKaramba applets through the creation of the SuperKaramba Plasmoid.
kernelTRAP: Neil Horman posted an enhancement to a /proc/sys/kernel interface for redirecting core dumps, "allowing the core_pattern to contain arguments to be passed as an argv array to the userspace helper application.
phoronix: It has been a while since we last reviewed an ASRock motherboard, but this budget manufacturer has kept churning out new and more innovative products. The ASRock motherboard we have our hands on for this Linux and Solaris review is the ALiveNF7G-HDready, which combines NVIDIA's GeForce 7050 and nForce 630a MCP with a wealth of integrated extras such as IEEE-1394a Firewire to offer a rather good package for its low price.
teambio: So it’s been two weeks since I started using Ubuntu 7.04. I have to say that it has been a very interesting experience so far. To say that it has been easy and seamless would be a lie. However, I have to say that I’ve been able to do 99% of the things that I set out to do. Now that I’ve spent some time digging into the system I wanted to write a follow-up piece to my initial review.
linuxappfinder: I recently got a BlackBerry Curve for work, and being a Linux user I was immediately interested in getting them to work together. The bad news is that RIM doesn't make a driver for Linux. The good news is that you can still get them to work together anyway. Here's how.
This article shows how you can use an iPod on a Linux desktop with Amarok. It covers how you can upload MP3 files from your desktop to your iPod, download MP3 files from your iPod to your desktop, and how you can delete files on the iPod.
grumpymole: In a mischievous moment, I thought I would try out Firefox 3, or GranParadiso. My expectations were that nothing would look different, but there was a new rendering engine.
Linux Electrons: Red Hat has launched a new package repository for enterprise-class Linux (EL) distributions derived from Fedora, such as Red Hat Enterprise Linux or CentOS, called EPEL.
DPotD: I used to roam around cafés, schools, hotels, etc, logging myself into this network, that network, any network using the command line. OK, you are bored and couldn’t be asked to read any further —or was it that I was bored and installed knetworkmanager instead?
switched.com: The era of streaming High-Definition content our PCs is almost here. Now you can watch episodes of 'Lost,' 'Ugly Betty,' or 'Grey's Anatomy' in beautiful 720p HD. Unless you just bought yourself one of those nice new Ubuntu powered Dells -- there's no support for linux.
Matt Hartley: So you are trying to drop that MS Office habit but find yourself struggling thanks in part to features missing from Open Office (Oo) such as a solid grammar check feature. As it turns out, there is a solution.
CodeHappy: I’m not sure why, but I have an itch to install Ubuntu on a real machine. I could install it in a VM in Parallels, but for some weird reason I want it on a dedicated machine.
yellowsub: When I first got the Toshiba Portege 3490CT from an auction at work, my main goal for the machine was to install Linux on it.
OneAndOneIs2: I see Intel has just released the previously-commercial-only Threading Building Blocks (TBB) template library under GPL v2. And this has reminded me of the complications Qt has brought up being v2-only, and it suddenly occurred to me that there's a way MS could bring a really sneaky anti-v3 strategy to bear.
linuxseeker: The developmental release of the beautifully "near-microscopic" Damn Small Linux 4.0 Alpha1 has been released on 17 July 2007. This is what Damn Small Linux's fans have been really longing for. Happy, no. Euphoric, yes!
FOSSwire: To be fair to them, Google are now producing quite a few desktop applications for Linux now. However, we don’t yet have a Gmail Notifier application which runs in the background and shows you when you have new email in your Gmail inbox.
thoughtsabouttechnology: Linux has been an OS since 1991. It has been adopted by many web hosting providers and is a heavily used server platform. So, why can't Linux be a desktop OS? Simply put, because it doesn't have the features of a modern day desktop OS.
debuntu.org: LVM (Logical Volume Manager) is a great piece of software which allow you to deal with Logical Volumes. Using LVM along with ext3 filesystem, you are allowed to extend the size of your logical drives which is pretty handy when running out of space.
