There are a lots of people install and use other windows manager on top of gnome, instead of using metacity by default. Windows manager such as beryl, fluxbox, fvwm etc allows gtk applications to run on top of them with full capabilities.

OpenOffice is an ongoing project developed collaboratively by users and developers around the globe. They make their handiwork available online at no cost to anyone who wants it, including individuals, employers and schools.
I recently got hold of a 1 GB USB memory stick. But when I tried to mount it in a bare bones Linux distribution (a distribution which has just enough software as is needed), it was not mounted automatically. This is because the auto mounting takes place by means of a program known as hotplug which detects the USB device that is inserted in real time and then mounts it in the desired location.
Linux has long held the promise of offering normal users an alternative to Windows. With the arrival of the high priced Windows Vista Support Alert subscriber "Briard" decides to put 12 Linux distros to the test.

Benjamin Otte has Swfdec working with YouTube. Swfdec is a library for decoding and rendering Flash animations. It is still in heavy development. The intended audience are developers or people using it for pretested Flash animations (think embedded here). If you use it on unknown content, expect it to have issues and don't be surprised if it crashes.
Sometimes you just look at things and realize that they are just plain funny.
That was what ran through my mind this week when I saw this headline from Computer Business Review: "HSBC Signs Up for Microsoft's SUSE Linux Support." The double-take took a bit to settle in, because for a second I wondered if Microsoft actually owned SUSE Linux now.
I am proud to announce the release of K3b 1.0. After years and years of development, all the sweat (actually in the summer it can get sticky in front of the screen), all the tears (ok, admittedly, not that many), and all the countless hours I spent on a single application finally we have what I think is worth the big 1.
Mozilla Corp. is changing the way it publishes security fixes for its Firefox browser.
