vizzzion.org: So I've chosen to become Shane's Personal Plasma Steward. This in turn makes me much more aware of things, that I personally take for granted which aren't so natural (yet) to others. One of those things is "How does this thing work?" (for "plasma" as value of thing). Let me explain on a high level how you can use Plasma and make the most of it, starting with a default Plasma desktop.
linux-mag.com: It’s an eternal debate amongst Penguinistas: Emacs or Vim? Unfortunately, for most” normal” (i.e., non-geek) folks, this debate will never occur, since they will find Emacs or Vim way too complicated, strange, and, well… different. There has to be some way to ease users into Vim, some way to leverage the power of Vim while accommodating, or even overcoming, the steep learning curve. Fortunately, there is a solution: Cream.
reviewlinux.com: SystemRescueCD has been around for sometime and their latest version 1.0.3 just came out today. I take a short look at it and briefly describe some of its advantages. Checkout the short flash video at the end of the article to see SystemRescueCD 1.0.3 in action.
junauza.com: All Linux distributions are not created equal. Some are superior in quality while others are so full of crap. I hate to sound grumpy like Béranger, but I have tried plenty of distros my entire life and have experienced using those that made my blood boil.
earthweb.com: Today's closed source software vendors have a very neat, tidy arrangement that works well for them on both the Windows and OS X platforms. I will be exploring why I believe that the software and hardware industries fear widespread Linux adoption and what they will eventually have to do about it should things with desktop Linux come into fruition.
arstechnica.com: It has been almost a year since we got our first glimpse of the next-generation Banshee media player. The latest beta, which was released on Friday, offers a wide variety of impressive features and a highly polished user interface.
mcphersonz.wordpress: An operating system is only as good as the application that it can run. Lack of options is definitely not a problem with Ubuntu (or most flavors of Linux for that matter). The problem you are faced with is what to use — looking at my Ubuntu software repositories, I see over 24,000 packages. That’s a lot to choose from.
kmandla.wordpress: Don’t fault yourself as clueless just because you haven’t heard about the Exherbo yet. The distro-to-be seems to have gotten some attention for making it clear that your help is not needed, thank you very much.
tectonic.co.za: Parastal CSIR, South Africa’s national science and technology research organisation, is readying to switch most of its more than 2300 staff to using Ubuntu Linux as their default desktop.
theinquirer.net: BUILDING YOU OWN computer has gone beyond nailing a few off-the-shelf components together and overclocking the RAM with the announcement that Via will be offering CAD files of its Openbook laptop to anyone who's interested.

workswithu.com: Over the years, I’ve developed a generalized theory about the relative cost of getting things done in Windows versus that of Linux, and as something of a corollary, the reason a lot of people say Linux is too hard, or “not ready for the desktop.”
abzone.be: Years ago I already played a bit with Linux (It was Redhat 5.0 on my 386). At that time I thought the operating system wasn't yet ready for the desktop. Things changed when Ubuntu 5.04 was released. So then I started searching to a nice and user-friendly lightweight distribution.

Welcome to this year's 3rd issue of DPN, the newsletter for the Debian community. Steve McIntyre sent a new Bits from the DPL mail. A serious issue in Debians OpenSSL package has been fixed recently. Debian is discussing about an archive strucure for huge packages.
gregdek.livejournal: The problem: if you don't actually have a physical XO unit, it can be a real bear to get a version of Sugar up and running. It's been possible for a while to run Sugar under emulation, but if you don't quite understand the right incantations, that can be pretty tricky as well. The solution: a customized Live Image based on Fedora 9.
celettu.wordpress: I want to draw some attention to a hidden gem I’ve discovered not too long ago: EmelFM2, a wonderful two-pane view lightweight file manager. Personally, I need two panes. Everything I download goes into a directory in my /home, unsorted, to check them out. Two-pane managers are great for this.
liquidat.wordpress: KDE4Daily, a virtual machine image of KDE 4 with daily updates was released for KDE 4.1. This gives anyone the opportunity to test the newest KDE 4.1 sanely inside a virtual machine.
blue-gnu.biz: Jeff Moe is a 37 year old self-employed father. Better known as jebba, he is the main developer behind the 100% Free distribution BLAG (for BLAG Linux And GNU). He is also leading a couple of other Free software projects. He kindly agreed to give Blue GNU an interview.
lawyersweekly.ca: Many open source licences are only two or three paragraphs long and read more like a manifesto than a traditional software licence. The simple but unorthodox nature of open source licences, along with the fact that the software is provided “free,” has lulled many into a false sense that these licences must surely be unenforceable and that the use and redistribution of open source software will have no consequences.
