blog.diginux.net: It has been actually over a year since my “Goodbye Gentoo” post. I have been wanting to get away from Gentoo for a long time now because of how the Gentoo community has fallen apart. It was bad a year ago, and it has become only worse.

gentoo.org: Hello and welcome to the third issue of the Gentoo Monthly Newsletter. Last month we ran graphical statistics on an experimental basis. While most of you think they're a good idea in general, there seemed to be general dislike for 3D pie-charts.

kdubois.net: “Hello. My name is Kevin, and I’m a dpkg addict. Its been 3 days since my last apt-get…” Dpkg is the package management system for the *buntu’s and for Debian. I have had an itch for a little while to move away from downloading prebuilt packages. Why?

GTK+ Gains Experimental Overlay Scrollbars

The overlay scrollbar work that was committed on Monday is about improving the scrolling experience for those using GTK+ applications from touch screens.

3 Alternatives to the Adobe PDF Reader on Linux

Adobe has pulled the plug on supporting its PDF reader app for Linux. This should come as no surprise, as the last time Adobe Reader for Linux was updated came in May 2013. But until recently, you could at least download and install Reader on your Linux desktop machine. Now? You can’t.
