groklaw: I thought it would be fun to include some of the media reaction to the news of the SCO bankruptcy filing. Some of the headlines are inspired. The winner has to be "SCO files Chapter 11 bankruptcy - Seeks court protection from its own lawsuits".
DPotD: Newsbeuter is an RSS feedreader for the text console. It comes with a user interface in the style of such popular text tools such as mutt and slrn, and aims to be the text-mode RSS feedreader with the most features, providing the greatest flexibility for its users.
distrowatch: The site won't be updated until the problem is dealt with, but at least you can access the existing information. Sorry for the trouble
blogbeebe: If you haven't tried Fedora in a while, you owe it to yourself to at least fire up the Live CD and give it a whirl. The look and feel of the entire graphic desktop has been advanced and polished quite a bit from earlier versions, including Fedora 7.
/home/liquidat: Today I installed the new AMD/ATI drivers. It is still a bit buggy bug comes along with performance improvements. The main reason to try the new AMD/ATI driver was for me to test if the OpenGL implementation works for a program I have.
kmandla.wordpress.com: This is probably the most boring screenshot ever, but it’s an important one. That’s Ubuntulite 7.04, a fresh installation and a working system. Laugh if you want, but that’s an important step.
all about linux: Have you ever had to determine the virtual terminal that an X session is running on? Perhaps you may want this information for a program you have created. It is possible using the fgconsole command.

- Bandwidth Monitor-NG - terminal-based interface bandwidth monitoring tool
- KNemo - KDE network interface monitoring tool
- EtherApe - graphical network activity monitoring tool
domhnallck.blogspot: Some time ago, I dumped Windows for Linux. It wasn't an easy task to do so. Now that I'm pretty well set, however, I see no reason to go with a dual boot, or ever go back to any incarnation of Windows again.
Also: Linux: May the source be with you
El Bloguenn: Here we go again, today's topic: Install Warcraft 3 with TFT in Ubuntu using Cedega. I'm a great Dota fan, and I had to restart my computer everytime I wanted to play, so I installed it in my Ubuntu, and it works great!
Also: Kiba-Dock in Ubuntu
And: Mp3Blaster, Console Player for Linux
The Temple of Bague: I have a decrepit old PC that I need to find a job for and we have a very good and very expensive hi-fi seperates system going to waste. So here’s the solution.
Aaron Seigo: Some of the blockers for mainstream Linux desktop usage are lack of legal codecs, hardware integration and certain types of basic functionality like software suspend not working reliably. This is not news, of course, but rather the typical gripes people have had for years. Even as much of the Free software has reached the point of being true-blue entries in the top echelons of functionality and quality, some of these issues continue to nag at us unanswered.
blino's mandriva blog: While trying to reproduce and debug UnionFS bugs with VirtualBox, I needed to extract a copy of the call traces. Screenshots are not easily usable, so I tried the "serial ports" feature of VirtualBox.
tuxdeluxe: In the computing world, ISO standards have a mixed record. But standards don't rule the computing world. Microsoft has historically had an ambivalent view of standards. This historical record makes the recent global activities over the "Office Open XML" (OOXML) document format so interesting.
matt asay: Back in April I was fortunate to host Mark Shuttleworth at an Arsenal game and then dinner. Today, we repeated the day with an amazingly fun day at the Arsenal vs. Tottenham match. I asked Mark two poignant questions about Ubuntu:
kdedevelopers: There has been some discussion on the kde-core-devel mailing list about a change to how the active window should be distinguished from the inactive windows, where different color palettes are used for the widgets inside inactive windows.
linux movement: The first one is a nifty last fm applet which sits on your dock so you can listen to your last fm stations. The next new Applet is the gmail notifier Apple. Here are some nice images:
blogbeebe: As I went rambling about the web I came across OSNews and checked out an article on the release of Fedora 8 Test 2. Right there in the middle of the article was the Microsoft ad you see below.
kernelTRAP: Randy Dunlap sent a patch to the Linux kernel mailing list described as adding "info about various email clients and their applicability in being used to send Linux kernel patches."
zdnet blogs: Microsoft’s proposal for the fast track of the OOXML standard was recently shot down by the ISO. Google concludes that Microsoft’s OOXML should never be standardized due to things like reliance on proprietary elements and simply not enough time to review the >6000 page document that outlines the standard.
