Filed under
Linux

Filed under
Linux

ITtoolbox Blogs: The age old "discussions" that float around the internet in regards to Linux and windows security are contentious ones.

Filed under
OSS

hackfud.net: The Open Document Foundation has nothing to do with the Open Document Format. Really, they should change their name. For one thing, it’s confusing and diluting the acronym for the Open Document Format. Another thing is, they, appear to be very, very confused about what they are doing.

abhay-techzone.blogspot: I have a three years old desktop with AMD 2400+ CPU, 640 MB RAM on a Via KM400 motherboard.

Playing With Themes in Ubuntu 7.10

Filed under
HowTos

geekybits.blogspot: In July I wrote a post which has been quite popular called: Turning Ubuntu's Brown Eyes Blue. This post was about changing themes in Ubuntu, getting away from the orange and brown colours and using mostly blue. Things have changed quite a bit since July and changing themes in the new Ubuntu 7.10 (Gutsy Gibbon) is a little bit different, therefore I thought I would offer some fresh advice.

What is needed here is a celebrity distro match, battle to the death. And in the blue corner, weighing in at 70lbs, wearing knobbly knees and a tank top, master of the inane, lord or pointlessness, it's Faaaaaaaanboy! And in the orangy corner, weighing in at 71.123984775lbs, taking into account a floating point error, compiled 1 second faster, the spark of the unholy distro...'buntu basher masher.

Connect Firefox to TiddlyWiki with TiddlySnip

Filed under
Moz/FF

linux.com: If you're using TiddlyWiki as your note-taking tool, you ought to give TiddlySnip a try. The idea behind this Firefox extension is simple: it allows you to add the currently viewed Web page or selected text snippet to your TiddlyWiki as a new tiddler. But TiddlySnip adds a few clever twists to this basic idea, which turn the Firefox/TiddlyWiki combo into a powerful and extremely useful tool.

A tale of two plug-and-play Linux boxes

Filed under
Linux

iTWire: As many of us who watch the Linux market know, the past week has seen the announcement of two markedly different plug-and-play Linux computers. I was excited by one and not the other. To my surprise, the one that didn't interest me has taken off like a rocket to the moon while it is still too early say how the other will do. The good news, however, is that desktop Linux has finally gone mainstream.
