linux.com: With libraries of thousands of fonts to handle, designers need a way to quickly locate fonts and organize them into meaningful categories -- such as by the project that requires them -- and to disable fonts when they are not in use so that they don't clog system memory. Although as recently as two years ago the GNU/Linux desktop lacked a font manager that met all these needs, it now has four that either meet them or are likely to.
polishlinux: The state of Plasma can be currently described as ‘chaotic’. The reason for that is that its API is being refactored which in result makes it almost impossible to use for a regular human being. I managed to catch a dev snapshot of KDE 4.1 which allowed me to test the recent changes, at least on the surface.

junauza.com: One of the many perks of being a Linux user is that you have plenty of excellent software to choose from. To somehow guide those who are still looking for a media player that will suit their needs, I have put together a list that I hope will help.
zdnetasia.com: Participation by big open source vendors is helping attract new interest in Linux user groups in Asia. Khairil Yusof, president of the Free/Open Source Software Society (FOSS) in Malaysia, said in an interview that the group's members have benefited by sharing knowledge with others from different technology backgrounds during its monthly meetings.
Matt Asay: Ah, how the mighty have fallen. In what must have been gross oversight, Red Hat is pitching proprietary software on its website under the banner of "No vendor lock-in." The way Red Hat and IBM make it appear, simply running one's software on an open platform like Linux magically removes the proprietary lock-in of the application.
blog.ivanristic.com: I have downloaded the beta of Firefox 3 to check out the improvements related to SSL. First, there's the added support for Extended Validation SSL certificates, but I am not very excited about that. It's a nice feature, but it's not going to bring much good overall. On the other hand, I am very happy with the improvements to the handling of invalid SSL certificates.

blogs.zdnet.com: Yesterday, the Open Source community took an emotional hit when veteran Linux programmer Hans Reiser was convicted of first degree murder in the suspicious disappearing of his wife, Nina. I would like to talk a little bit about how this verdict will impact the technology in play for file system dominance in our favorite Open Source operating system, Linux.

liquidat.wordpress: In a recent interview with the German IT online magazine Golem.de the kernel developer Greg Kroah-Hartman mentioned that the USB video device support will soon be merged into the vanilla kernel.
itpro.co.uk: Formula One motor racing is no longer about famous car marques, its about precise science and using technology to shave another fraction of a second off a lap time, and Linux is playing a pivotal role in helping the race teams achieve this.
Linux Graphics Users.com is a forum created by artists, for artists in the Linux community. It is true, that most of the Linux graphics software listed on our site has their own forums (some more than one).... But, LGU is much more than just about the software, or the distro.... It's about the people.
reghardware.co.uk: This week's award for the Most Astutely Selected Software Bundle goes to BT after the teleco tried to hook potential purchasers of Asus' Linux-running Eee PC 900 by offering to ship it with a copy of Microsoft Office.

wheatlandlinux.wordpress: There are many (not all are very good) chess games in Linux. There is the one installed by default with the small game packages that come with Ubuntu and most versions of Linux that use Gnome, but I do not like this one very much. It is ok for basic play, but it is really not that good.
manilastandardtoday.com: I have managed to amass several hundred audio CDs over the years—and I have long since given up trying to keep track of them on a spreadsheet. Entering data in this manner—especially individual track information—was simply too tedious. How best then to manage my music library?
