OSWeekly: I have been a fan of PC-BSD for sometime now; however, it was after discovering this page that had me disturbed. Using PC-BSD's awesome packaging methods, the webmaster of this site has apparently packaged some applications that might cause some licensing concerns.
In this week's KDE Commit-Digest: "Pencils down" marks the end of the Summer of Code for 2007. Python highlighting support, with work on a new, handwritten lexer in KDevelop. A data engine and associated Plasma applet for KGet. Start of the Plasma-based Wikipedia and Service Info applets for Amarok 2.
the inquirer: We already reported how Skype was taking a deep interest in the workings of the BIOs of Windows users, now it seems that the outfit is snooping on Linux users too.

ossblog.it: Ubuntu Mobile is one of the most promising flavour for Canonical distro. So we intervieweved Matt Zimmerman, Ubuntu’s CTO and chairman of the Ubuntu Technical Board, to better know which are the main features of this Ubuntu derivative and what we have to expect.
phoronix: We don't review many disk controllers or hard drives at Phoronix but we decided to take a quick look at the Promise Technology SATA300 TX4 PCI controller card. In this review of the Promise SATA300 TX4 we tested it with Ubuntu 7.04 Feisty Fawn using an nForce 430 chipset.
All about Linux: Ubuntu is on a roll to create the best Linux distribution targeted at the lay person ever. And a number of user friendly features are expected to be included in the yet to be released Gutsy Gibbon.
blogbeebe: In the last posting I made a few snide comments about Vista's documented network (un)performance while Vista was playing back something as simple as an MP3. I found a moment this evening to set up an extremely simple experiment where I streamed a movie and played an MP3 at the same time on europa.
ITtoolbox Blogs: Over the weekend I got into a mood to try out another window manager besides my beloved KDE. Warning! There may be some prejudice here I thought that if I could find a good WM to run on my aging flaky computer I might be able to squeak by until I get a new motherboard.
techgage: Although I don't like to admit it, I have screwed up many times since I first began using computers. But, no longer. I made it a goal to keep perfect backups of my data so that I don't suffer such a fate again. Today's article will be focusing on backing up your files in Linux.
/home/liquidat: Current KDE svn already comes along with the first bits of the future task and system bar. While the current version is not functional yet it shows that we can soon expect news about that topic.
how-to geek: The calculator options on Linux just blows the Windows calculator away. Imagine a calculator where you can solve extremely complicated expressions, or just convert between different measurements, and you've got Qalculate.
tom-buntu: An excellent feature of Beryl was the tray icon that allowed users to easily switch window managers and decorators. A similar icon for Compiz Fusion is now available.
Inside Open Source: So we’ve all probably blindly followed the directions of one tutorial or another at some point in time. Whether it was for some programming technique or to get a mail server up and running. How you ever stopped to think about how damaging the tutorial could be if it contained wrong information?

arstechnica: I recently discovered APTonCD, a utility that makes it easy to store Ubuntu packages on a CD or DVD so that they can be installed again later without having to download the packages again.
Matt Asay: We tend to think of open source as a software-development phenomenon, and so it is. But the ideas behind open source are starting to be felt beyond the software world. With this in mind, I put together a list of ten principles that I've gleaned from my open source experience.
eWeek: There'll be peace in the valley for me, someday," sang the dulcet-toned Drudge, Elvis-like. The Kitty wasn't hung over from the recent Elvis week in Memphis but instead was contemplating the aftermath of SCO's major court defeat in its ongoing Linux IP battles.
