paulstamatiou.com: Recently the social web browser company Flock rolled out a milestone release, version 0.9. While it’s not a 1.0, the new release totes some awe-inspiring new features that put it on a different level than the last major release, Beta 1 (my review), almost a year ago.
thelins: This page is dedicated to tracking the early releases of KDE 4. Each release is being tried out and screenshots are provided. As KDE 4 alpha 2 was released I tested the live CD. For the interested reader I took some screenshots.
DesktopLinux: Dell Ubuntu Linux buyers were recently outraged when a price comparison between identical Inspiron 1420 laptops showed that instead of the Ubuntu system being cheaper, it actually ended up costing $225 more than the same laptop with Vista Home Basic Edition. Dell says that the prices have been reset to the appropriate prices.
cups.org: In February of 2007, Apple Inc. acquired ownership the CUPS source code and hired me (Michael R Sweet), the creator of CUPS. CUPS will still be released under the existing GPL2/LGPL2 licensing terms, and I will continue to develop and support CUPS at Apple.
MaximumPC: If you're a newb looking to dip your toe into the waters of the Linux world, Dell's line-up of preinstalled Ubuntu PCs is a very good first choice. But while Dell certainly appears to have the best offering of Linux desktops and notebooks at the moment, it isn't the only choice out there. Here are five alternatives for Linux-ready PCs.
kernelTRAP: Included in Andrew Morton's potential 2.6.23 merge list were a series of patches to make the x86-64 architecture tickless. Andi Kleen, the x86-64 maintainer replied, "I'm sceptical about the dynticks code. It just rips out the x86-64 timing code completely."
Mark Shuttleworth: With projects like Gobuntu and gNewSense aiming to provide a platform that is zealous about free software, the obvious question is “where can I run it?”. And right now, as far as laptops go, there are no good answers.
linux.com: I stumbled across an interesting and useful tool recently called dzen, a "general purpose messaging and notification program" written by Rob Manea. Basically, dzen provides an instant-on/instant-off pop-up terminal window, along with a multitude of options that allow you to run just about any command.
desktoplinux: Linux vendor Linspire on July 11 said that the new Open XML translator is now available for use in its latest Freespire and Linspire distributions. The Open XML translator enables bi-directional compatibility, so that files saved in the Microsoft-created Open XML format can be opened by OpenOffice.org users, and files created by OpenOffice can be saved in Open XML format.
element14: Your GNU/Linux computer is an amazing machine. It can display images. It can run programs. It can perform dozens of functions all at the same time. How can you keep track of all this activity?
E@zyVG: Introducing VMGL, which provides OpenGL Hardware 3D Acceleration for Virtual Machines. When tested in xen with Quake 3 & Unreal Tournament 2004 it provides for up to 87% of the performance of the native implementation.
Fabrice Facorat: I've just read an article about 10 ways to improve the GNOME Desktop, and I must admit that many points are sensible. Let analyze them :
This document describes how to install a PureFTPd server that uses virtual users from a MySQL database instead of real system users.
linux.com: A computer running Linux can outperform the same computer running Windows XP or Vista. Even so, you may be able to make your Linux system even faster. Here are three optimizations, at different levels, that can make your Linux system perform better.
Penguin Pete: Microsoft is like a stoned Pac-Man with the munchies gobbling up Linux lately. The latest recruit is TurboLinux, who is going to help them spread the foulness that is OOXML (pronounced "ooks-mull"). While we're all scampering around in circles asking "What are they doing? Who will they eat next? What is their strategy?", has anybody considered that maybe they've simply decided to keep buying GNU/Linux until they own it?
ars technica: When the Nokia N800 Internet Tablet was announced at the beginning of the year, we were excited about the successor to the 770. Not only was there an updated version of the Linux-based Internet Tablet OS and significantly-improved hardware, but Nokia also promised us a fully-functional Skype client for the N800. Nearly six months after the tablet's launch, the Skype client has finally arrived.

seopher: My heart sank a little bit as I sat through 2-3 minutes of what can only be described as 'error messages' while this early release of Gutsy Gibbon booted on my virtual machine - although it came through in the end. Here we have the Alpha 2 release of Ubuntu 7.10 Gutsy Gibbon for me to cast a preliminary eye over 3 months prior to release.
kernelTRAP: Another thread discussed potentially merging the swap prefetch patch into the mainline Linux kernel. Con Kolivas started the thread saying "I fixed all bugs I could find and improved it as much as I could last kernel cycle. Put me and the users out of our misery and merge it now or delete it forever please."
Yet Another Linux Blog: I see articles like OSWeekly’s "The Future of Publishing with Linux Magazines" and I chuckle a bit. Mainly because PCLinuxOS Magazine will have its 12 monthly issue published next month.
