LinuxJournal: Two weeks ago, I heard that Progeny Linux Systems of Indianapolis had closed its doors for the last time. The end was a long-time coming – in fact, six years longer than I predicted. All the same, I paused last week for a bit of nostalgia.
fareast's diary: My latest dual boot fun is with PCLinuxOS. If Ubuntu is the most solid of recent easy to set up distros, then PCLOS is the fastest and most complete out of the box.
Motho ke motho ka botho: I’ll have to glaze over the last few console programs I wanted to mention, and leave it to you to investigate them fully.
Red Hat Mag: I know there are many OS X users curious about running Linux on their Mac hardware, but are overwhelmed with the configuration options. There are also many Linux users who want to work on one machine and would like to dual-boot OS X and Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.
Linux.com: About ten years ago, the first DVD players shipped to the United States. After a slow start, the DVD has almost completely replaced video tapes and has become the de facto standard for the movie industry. Creating DVDs on a Linux machine can be a complex task, but can be made much easier by using 'Q' DVD-Author.
phoronix: If you were hoping to use a Creative X-Fi series sound card under Linux in the near future, think again.
Pimp Your Linux: This OSx looking dock is by far the most advanced that I have reviewed in regards to graphics, and eye candy. However, it is a very new dock, and still might be unstable, so make sure to run it for a good while on your system, before comitting to it.
CyberNetNews: Early this year I updated you on what was happening with this release, and it has progressed quite nicely since then. Since I’m a pre-release junkie I couldn’t help but see what has improved since my last look at the browser.
Groklaw: When SCO started threatening to sue over Linux, it offered Linux users protection from lawsuits if they'd buy a SCOsource license. Some did. A smattering. Now Linux users are being offered a "patent peace" with Microsoft in a very similar way, only this time, it's supposedly patents backing up the threat. Or is it?
- Is Microsoft’s ODF vote supposed to make amends for its patent attack?
- Microsoft Patents Linux Impact: Red Hat vs. Novell
- Q&A: Microsoft won't sue over Linux, for now
- How dumb does Microsoft think we are?
seekingalpha: The buzz May 14 was all about the Microsoft/OSS “patent happening.” According to Fortune, Microsoft claims that open source software as a group violates over 200 Microsoft patents. Here are five reasons why this is not new news:
iTWire: Is ooXML, Microsoft's new documents standard on the ropes in Europe? Absolutely, according to one of IBM's prominent technology and intellectual property spokespersons. Like other areas that are starting to seriously bug Microsoft, open document standards go to the heart of eliminating the software company's proprietary lock-in.
blog.jillesvangurp.com: I’ve given up on feisty. I’ve blogged several times now about my failure to install it properly. Today I gave it another try and partially succeeded before failing again.
Falappa.Net: So you are on Ubuntu 7.04 and you want to compile the bleeding edge version of GIMP… You may wonder which packages do I need to install on Ubuntu to get all the stuff I need to successfully compile GIMP?

mozillaZine: A third set of release candidate builds for the forthcoming Mozilla Firefox 18.104.22.168 release are now available for testing. Testers can obtain these builds from the rc3 directory on ftp.mozilla.org.
arabianbusiness.com: Linux distributor Red Hat is working with Intel on a desktop PC targeted at emerging markets. Due to ship in June, the Red Hat Global Desktop will support a number of Intel's current and future platforms aimed at emerging markets.
Wired.com: When Firefox launched in beta release five years ago, it burst on the open-source browser scene like a young Elvis Presley -- slim, sexy and dangerous. But, with Firefox 3.0 poised for release this summer, the "IE killer" is in danger of morphing into an early Fat Elvis, if increasing numbers of die-hard fans turned reluctant critics are any guide.
Linux.com: Intel recently released its PowerTOP utility, which builds on work done by kernel developers to make the Linux kernel power-efficient. PowerTOP gives you a snapshot of what apps are consuming the most power. Turn off these apps or modify their behavior, and you'll notice an instant increase in the battery life.
cityonahillpress: The phrase “humanity toward others” does not usually inspire images of computer code. However, Ubuntu, the most popular version of the Linux operating system, may provide just that: humanity toward others, without the hefty price tag.
