ruminations: Working with KDE for the last two weeks was enjoyable enough. I even decided to use KDE on my Debianized iMac. What I realize is that I have become pretty agnostic when it comes to the graphical desktop. I hardly care whether it is Windows, GNOME, KDE or Mac OS X. I do care about applications and what i can do with them. So, why bother with installing GNOME right now?

Forbes.com (Dan Lyons): For four years, I've been covering a lawsuit for Forbes.com, and my early predictions on this case have turned out to be so profoundly wrong that I am writing this mea culpa. What can I say? I grew up Roman Catholic. The habit stays with you.

Linux.com: KDE's window-specific settings feature gives you a fine level of control over the way windows behave. It lets you change settings such as minimum/maximum size, position, overlay, and transparency. By changing the default behavior of the various windows used by GIMP with KDE's window-specific settings, you can improve the GIMP interface.
Raiden's Realm: Ark Linux is a distribution that strives to provide the end user with the easiest possible install and the greatest ease of use. Indirectly derived from Red Hat Linux, it really strives to set itself apart as the preferred distribution for the new user to Linux. But exactly how user friendly is Ark Linux?
ZDNet: Linux users in the UK could face a greater threat from Microsoft than previously thought, but experts agree that British open-source users are in far less danger than US users from Microsoft's claim that open-source software infringes its patents.
freesoftware mag: A common criticism levelled at GNU/Linux and free software by proprietary software companies is that installing applications, drivers and media codecs is made difficult. Well, it isn’t.
dana blankenhornYesterday, Paula laid the smackdown on IBM for not going after Microsoft Outlook with its Symphony announcements. Before Big Blue could even rise from the mat, however, the Mozilla Foundation tagged me with news it was expanding its Thunderbird initiative with $3 million seed funding.

Software programs are often made to run on systems that are completely different from the system in which the program is coded or developed. This process of adapting software across systems is known as porting. This article shows you how to port your software from one environment to another.

KateOS 3.6 was released a few days ago. Since KateOS has always been one of my favorite distributions and since I haven't looked at it recently, I decided to take it for a test run on my HP Pavillion laptop. It always supported the hardware on my desktop, so I was interested to see how it would fare with wireless ethernet and powersaving features. There are two versions available: a full 2.4 GB DVD and a 700 MB live CD. I chose the 700 MB live CD.
junauza.blogspot.com: Gentoo, formerly known as Enoch Linux is one of the pioneers among the Linux distributions. It is well-known and loved for its speed, and hated for its unfriendliness with Linux newbies. Thus, many flavours of Gentoo have been created including this highly capable one named Sabayon.
linux.com: The petard filesystem is designed to produce only errors -- but you can stipulate what conditions generate the errors and what those errors should be. That makes petardfs useful for system and unit testing -- for example, making sure that an application gives a sane error message if it fails to open a file, or if there is a read error at byte 5000 of a file.
Alexander Wolfe: The open-source operating system is destined to stay stuck in the shadow of Windows, blogger Alex Wolfe opines. Read why he believes desktop Linux hasn't--and isn't--going to have any significant impact.
Tux Love: The easiest way to check on disk space usage in Linux is to do a df -h command in a console window. Unfortunately it doesn't tell you where all the space has gone. Sheesh, what a mess! Thank heavens then for Filelight.
Matt Asay: Oh, my. We're back to the good old days of Microsoft mythology. I had actually believed that Microsoft had grown up and wised up. But no.
Torrent is a great way to transfer large files very quickly. However most torrent clients are gui based and have quite some impact on system resources (e.g. Azureus). rTorrent is a lightweight client running from the terminal.
