Linux.com: Fluendo's Elisa is a free software media center application that can play your DVDs, video files, music, and pictures. Since it is designed for extensibility, Elisa has the potential to do much more. It does not handle television or video recording functions, but it is a slick and promising project.
Free Software Mag: Do you need to make a database, but fear it’s too much of a pain or you don’t have the right tools? Don’t worry: it’s easy, free, and useful, too. Use the free OpenOffice.org office suite to get your data in shape for mail merges, queries, or useful analysis of your business data.
Paul Murphy: I've said elsewhere, linux is not Windows and efforts to make it so are doomed to fail. Nobody gets to be a leader by following, and neither OpenOffice nor Linux are going to beat Microsoft at being Microsoft.
eChannelLine: More than half of companies taking advantage of open source in a survey are using it in mission critical applications, stated a new report from Forrester Consulting that was sponsored by Unisys.
LinuxWorld: The concept of supporting user-space drivers has appeared on LWN a few times before. It's back; this time there is a version of the patch (now called "UIO") which is being proposed for inclusion into 2.6.22. The interface has changed somewhat, so another look is called for.
ITtoolbox Blogs: In my previous "Exploring the /etc directory" I talked about the inittab file and what it does. Now I am going to explore the directories it uses and how they work.
This document describes how to install a vsftpd server that uses virtual users from a PostgreSQL database instead of real system users. I could not find any tutorial like that on the internet, so when that configuration finally worked for me, I decided to publish it. The documentation is based on FreeBSD 6.2 which I was recently forced to use (I usually use Debian). Nevertheless the document should be suitable for almost any Linux distribution as well (may require very small amendments)
DesktopLinux: Ubuntu 7.04, aka "Feisty Fawn," has been out for several weeks now and it's already very popular. Heck, Michael Dell was running it even before he chose it to become Dell's Linux of choice. But, how good is it?
GCN: Last weekend, Slashdot unearthed a debate over system architecture that was simmering between key Linux kernel developers and a creator of Sun Microsystems Inc.’s next-generation file system, ZFS.
maximumpc: I’ve written about Linux in Maximum PC quite a bit over the last three years. You see, I’m intrigued by the prospect of a free, open operating system, one that’s available for everyone to use and modify to suit their own purposes.
LinuxDevices: Contrary to widespread rumors, Ubuntu Mobile will not target mobile phones. Instead, the "mobile and embedded" version of the popular desktop Linux distribution will be developed in partnership with Intel, and will target "mobile Internet devices" (MIDs), along the lines of Nokia's N800 web tablet.
liquidat: In the discussions around the last commit digest the question if there will be a common, firefox-like search bar for all applications anytime soon which all applications can share. It will not make it into KDE 4 for certain reasons, but might be a possibility for KDE 4.1.
Arun's Blog: I have successfully installed Virtualbox in my Ubuntu Feisty Fawn desktop. Installation was pretty simple. Configuration and installing Windows took some time. I’m listing the steps I followed to get it installed and configured.
dot.kde.org: We are here today to talk about the Strigi project - the indexing and search technology of KDE 4 - and to interview Flavio Castelli, a key developer of Strigi.
spreadfirefox: Mozilla's marketing team is getting close to launching a blog intended to serve as the official, central Mozilla Corporation blog with both original and cross-posted entries from the Mozilla blogosphere.
internetnews.com: The term release isn't all that accurate in reference to Gentoo, since Gentoo considers itself to be a metadistribution that is constantly updated.
Bits of News: The top five Linux distributions, or distros, are Ubuntu, OpenSuse, Fedora, PCLinuxOS and MEPIS. These rankings are courtesy of Distrowatch. You can go there and see which distros round out the top ten, hundred, and so on. There are literally hundreds of distros to choose from.
boing boing: Internet folk-hero and librarian Jessamyn got some donated PCs without any operating system on them at her library, so she installed Ubuntu Linux.
lockergnome blogs: Change! That is the name of the game. Picked up a “new” computer cheap the other day. I thought I’d give Ubuntu another try. Well I loaded it up and quite honestly I still don’t see what all the fuss is about it. So I installed PCLinuxOS.
