kernelTRAP: In response to another merge request, Andrew Morton retorted, "argh. I have a backlog of maybe 300 patches here which I am cheerfully ignoring while concentrating on preventing 2.6.23 from being less of a disaster than it has already been. Please, stop writing patches."
linux-watch: A few years ago, the idea that savvy developers and IT professionals would need to know anything about intellectual property law would have been dismissed as a bad joke. Then along came SCO.
pinderkent.blogsavy: Those who follow GNOME have probably read about the GNOME Online Desktop. After reading about this concept, I find myself very confused at what it is they’re actually trying to accomplish.
linux.com: In the world of Linux, many things have changed in the last decade. The operating system itself has grown up, and is no longer an "upstart." But one mainstay of the Linux community, the Linux user group (LUG), appears to be on the decline in some areas. Attendance is down, LUG presidents say, and some groups have stopped meeting. Does this mean we don't need LUGs anymore?
desktoplinux: It's a bit later than Linspire had planned, but the company's CEO Kevin Carmony told DesktopLinux that the new commercial version of its Linux distribution, Linspire 6.0, along with the free version, Freespire 2.0, and its revised CNR (click-and-run) software update system, should be out before August.
CyberNetNews: The Opera team has been working intensely on version 9.5, and we’ll hopefully be seeing weekly builds of those coming shortly. In the meantime they have whipped up Opera 9.22 which has significant improvements to the BitTorrent downloader.
phoronix: When it comes to binary display drivers under Linux, NVIDIA is generally known as the company that's able to offer drivers that are on par with their Windows driver. In this article, we have additional information on these austere performance problems along with benchmarks showing the frame-rate differences between Windows XP and Linux.
Matt Asay: I spent an hour with Matthew Szulik this morning, wanting to get his input on the Open Source CEO Series. Matthew isn't the sort of person to seek the limelight for himself, so it was actually hard to convince him to answer questions.
pimp your linux: Automatix is a program that installs a myriad programs on Linux distributions. It’s quite useful for people that are fed up with the limited options in the regular Ubuntu package manager. However, as helpful as the program may seem, there exists a problematic side to Automatix.
desktoplinux: OK, Desktop Linux heads, I'm a confessed newbie trying to switch to Linux from XP. My simplyMEPIS install from an ISO went well, but now, on day two, my attempts to install the just-released Firefox update have failed.
informationweek blogs: How are Linux distributions like digital cameras? It sounds like a joke on the order of, "What’s the difference between a compulsive gambler and a revolving door?" (Answer: The revolving door knows when to stop.) But the more I’ve thought about it, the more I’ve realized that Linux distros are as varied as digital cameras, and for some of the same reasons.
intelligententerprise.com: I received Gartner e-mail this week marketing their up-coming open-source summit. The message contains gems that illuminate Gartner's perspective on open source and the larger IT world.
ubuntu tutorials: This tutorial is for those people that like to run gnome and KDE side by side. This will allow you to only show the native apps in the menus within each desktop environment instead of showing everything.
Brian Proffitt: Across from me is the man who invented that monitor and the content delivery system that runs it, Eric Kanagy, CEO of RedPost, Inc. I have traveled all of 40 minutes to Goshen, Indiana to meet Eric and find out what's the big deal about an electronic bulletin board that runs Linux.
liquidat: KDE 4 is coming closer, and the 3rd party programs are busy porting. Amarok now unveiled that they will reuse some Plasma techniques to create appealing effects while Digikam reported a first version running on KDE 4.
phoronix: Sabayon Linux has released a "business edition" of its popular LiveDVD distribution known for its use of desktop accelerated effects and being based upon Gentoo. Sabayon Linux 1.0 Business Edition ships without the eye candy and games and is for when art meets business.
kernelTRAP: A recently merged KVM patchset included support for guest SMP, various performance improvements, and suspend/resume fixes. KVM stands for Kernel-based Virtual Machine, "a full virtualization solution for Linux on x86 hardware containing virtualization extensions".
arstechnica: The Participatory Culture Foundation (PCF) has renamed and relaunched its open-source television platform in hopes of offering an "open, mass medium of online television." What was once known as Democracy Player is now Miro.
blog.cryos.net: It has been a while since I last posted about progress with Avogadro. I have been doing a lot of under the hood improvements which has been really frustrating at times and hard to blog about. At last I have some real output and have just committed the code to the repository.
