informationweek.com/blog: In no less than two days I've read a flurry of articles pooh-poohing the Linux desktop as a veritable delusion and a fairy story -- something to tell young GTK+ coders before you tuck them in at night. It isn't the year of the Linux desktop; it's the year of the Linux catfight.
linuxtoday.com: I buy a fair number of computer books even though a lot of the knowledge becomes outdated in a short time by book standards, because books don't depend on electricity and are completely portable. When the network is going up in flames and nothing works, the last thing I want is to have to cobble up a working system and an Internet connection just to look things up.
tirania.org/blog: Today I upgraded my F-Spot, I had not upgraded it since before the PDC. It is now has a Picassa-like toolbar on the left:
tuxdeluxe.org: There was always something endearing about SuSE Linux. Maybe it was the artless lizard.
kumailht.com/blog: If you want to be successful in life, you have to use criticism to your advantage. Instead of looking at this list as a 1000 ways to hate desktop Linux, you can look at it as a 1000 ways to improve desktop Linux.
heise-online.co.uk: The previous eight parts of the kernel log's "What's coming in 2.6.28" series discussed some of the most important changes to the Linux kernel incorporated with 2.6.28. Quite a few of the commits for the main development branch, however, don't really belong to any of the topics discussed in the series so far and as a result, haven't yet been mentioned.
linuxdevices.com: PDF software company Foxit is readying an electronic book reader that weighs 6.4 ounces, measures 0.4 inches thick, and runs Linux.
reddevil62-techhead.blogspot: The brainchild of America-based IT consultant Roberto J. Dohnert, PC/OS is another Ubuntu-plus Linux distribution, this time utilising the XFCE desktop environment.
raiden.net: SymphonyOne is a distribution designed in a way that's uniquely different from other distributions. Its key focus is ease of use and simplicity. This is perfect for kiosks, new users, or technological neophytes who don't use a computer much, or simply don't like complicated interfaces.
linuxcanuck.wordpress: Ubuntu is the little distro that could. Now it is phenomenally successful so it is hard to see it as a little distro, but this wasn’t always the case. It started as an idea that grew into a philosophy that has shaped the distribution and the rest is history as they say.
greentechgirl.com: It is much better to rescue an old computer and make it useful than to simply toss it out into the garbage. Linux makes this easy - er, well, kind of easy.
reddevil62-techhead.blogspot: Well, it has been a long time coming but this week the BBC unveiled its iPlayer Desktop, a Linux and Mac version of the desktop library software which Windows users have been enjoying for months.
blog.sayakbanerjee.com: KDE 4.2 beta 2 is out! Got this upgrade to KDE 4.2 beta 2 (KDE 4.1.85) on 18th midnight. After a ~108 MB upgrade and a reboot, there have been many positive changes. Of the numerous upgrades, I noticed these:
cnet.com: Idealogues and fanboys aside, however, part of the problem is terminology. "Desktop" gets used to refer to at least a couple of different things. One is the traditional, general purpose PC as we've come to know it over the past 20 years or so. The other is a shorthand for any client device with a keyboard and monitor.
We balance freedoms (sacrifice one freedom for another) everyday. We sacrifice the freedom to do whatever we want to live in a society where laws keep us safe.
