Linux Tutorials: This solution contains some options for the mencoder command that will result in an mpeg video file that will play on pretty much all players, even Windows Media Player.
Seopher: I never imagined that Linux communities could be quite so secular, yet I have been proven wrong over the past couple of days. What started with a slightly skewed review on ThePCSpy.com turned into a small distro war and it looks to have continued into the comments on my review of PCLinuxOS 2007. What's going on?
Mozilla Links: I'd like to start demystifying the Mozilla suite, which seems to have become an example of what should be feared and avoided at all cost.

Techgage.com: It's hard to believe, but it's been just over two years since NeroLinux 2.0 was first released. At the time, it was a big step for Nero because the Linux market was already being hogged by k3b, X-CD-Roast and similar applications. The biggest kicker for consumers though, was the fact that in order to use the program, you had to purchase the full-blown edition for Windows which cost upwards of $80. So what is Nero trying to prove?
Linux.com: Blender gets the lion's share of press among free 3-D modeling applications, but it is not the only player in the field. Art of Illusion (AOI) is a mature, GPL-licensed 3-D modeler with robust editing, animation, and rendering features, and it's a lot easier to use than Blender.

Wired.com: Those Ubuntu-powered Dell machines are almost here. When Dell Computer announced it was making the Ubuntu operating system available as a preinstalled option, Linux geeks started hopping with joy. But what's in it for the non-geek computer user?

blogbeebe: I don't normally head over to Groklaw, but I did recently based on some other links and came across an article about a study conducted by Microsoft on how developers don't want the GLP, version 3, to "police patents." If you dig a little deeper into the study, the following facts about the study are exposed:
