Groklaw: It seems there may have been more games played by Microsoft in the OOXML saga, or at the very least some confusion spread, and this time our story comes from Spain, where the government of Andalusia has now sent an official letter of protest to the president of the technical committee deciding whether or not to accept OOXML as an ISO standard.
phoronix: Dell knows it won't happen overnight, but along side wanting to ship audio/video codecs, Intel Wireless 80.211N support for Linux, Broadcom Wireless for Linux, and being able to ship notebooks and desktops with Compiz Fusion enabled, Dell would like to see improved ATI Linux drivers.
OpenOffice.org Tips: I was talking to my friend Simon the other day about styles and how that's something that can help people be more efficient. List styles contain only list attributes, no text or paragraph formatting attributes.
techiqmag: No, HP hasn’t announced plans to pre-install Ubuntu Linux on selected PCs. But the computing giant has scored a deal to provide up to 5,000 Ubuntu PCs to a major university, The VAR Guy hears.
kernelTRAP: Thomas Gleixner described an effort to create a unified x86 architecture tree, "the core idea behind our project is simple to describe: we introduce a new arch/x86/ and include/asm-x86/ file hierarchy that includes all the existing 32-bit and 64-bit x86 code and allows the building of either a 32-bit (i386) kernel or a 64-bit (x86_64) kernel."
Linux Movement: Did you know That AIM has had a version for Linux users? When most people switch from Windows to linux they have to stop using AIM and switch to some thing like Pidgin, or Kopete. Well I got some interesting new for all you windows converts, AIM does create a version for Linux users....do I dare say anymore?
Various: On the second day of the Ubuntu Live 2007 conference presented by Canonical and O'Reilly was a keynote by Intel's Doug Fisher, Matt Zimmerman, and Tim O'Reilly among others. Also taking place were sessions on such topics as CloneZilla, Ubuntu on laptops, Dell Linux systems, and over two dozen other sessions.
Reuters: A nonprofit group that designs low-cost computers for poor children may start selling $350 laptops on the commercial market by Christmas, an executive said on Monday.
kernelTRAP: Lars Ellenberg started an effort to get DRBD, the Distributed Replicated Block Service merged into the Linux kernel. When asked for clarification as to what it was, Lars explained, "think of it as RAID1 over TCP."
OPB: Portland is hosting 2500 software developers this week at the annual 'Open Source Convention.' The Open Source Convention is not your normal convention. There's not a suit in sight and instead of motivational speakers, attendees sit in large darkened rooms, combing through computer code.
Fudmeister Enderle: I think that the reality is that for 99 percent of the people who buy and use products, it doesn’t. If you can’t read code, why would you care if you can? There is this central message of “freedom,” but it doesn’t really apply to a freedom that the average person identifies with. For instance, you are free to flap your arms and fly to the moon too, but if you can’t do it, so what?
Aaron Seigo: As you may already know, at this year's aKademy the term came up for our past KDE e.V. president, Eva. I personally thought hard about whether or not to take on the position for days prior to going to Glasgow. In the end, it was decided amongst all the board members that I would do so. I'd like to write a little bit about some of the goals that the KDE e.V. board of directors has for the next year.
Matt Asay: We're now at 199 projects that have adopted GPLv3, which represents a 21% increase over last week. Clearly, GPLv3 has legs. Significantly, Snort made the move this past week. This is a major coup for GPLv3.
CyberOrg: Here are some exciting new developments that has happened in compiz-fusion world.
LinuxWorld: Is it game over for OpenDocument? Probably. We've been expecting Massachusetts ITD to publicly revise its open formats mandate to include Office Open XML (OOXML) ever since Louis Gutierrez resigned as CIO in early October 2006. That was as clear a signal that ODF had failed in Massachusetts as needed by anyone in the know.
Raiden's Realm: This is going to be my attempt at a newbies installation guide for Arch Linux. This will be a "take you by the hand and lead you through it step by step" approach. Unlike most lead you by the hand guides that tell you to do this, and do that, I intend to also tell you WHY you are doing what you're doing.
arstechnica: There is one major web rendering engine that grew entirely out of the open source world: KHTML is KDE's web renderer which was built from the ground up by the open source community with very little original corporate backing. The code was good and branches were born as a result, the best known being Webkit. Now, after years of split, KHTML and Webkit are coming together once again.
iTWire: In IT, certification is a big deal. Try as professional societies like the ACM and ACS might, there’s no universal qualification – like the accountant’s CPA – that states you are recognised as competent and capable. This is where vendor certifications fill a gap.
/home/liquidat: Ubuntu announced that they will feature their own build service soon. Also, the next Ubuntu version is supposed to have a default installed server management web interface, eBox. In the meantime, development is underway to create a user friendly snapshot manager: TimeVault.
Serdar Yegulalp: Mitch Wagner’s post about writer’s tools for the Mac got me thinking about whether or not similar things exist for Linux.
