Linux.com: Even though I'm a die-hard Emacs user, there are times when I have to use the vi editor -- specifically gVim, the graphical face of the popular vi clone Vim. Since I use gVim so infrequently, I don't readily remember many of the editor's basic commands. Either I muddle through or reach for my well-thumbed copy of the vi Editor Pocket Reference. That was until I discovered Cream.

bmc blogs: Redmond is spreading fear, uncertainty, and doubt through the media. It's SCO all over again, except this time they have a willing partner in Novell. Clearly Microsoft’s leadership doesn't realize the value of open source alternatives. The only group they’re going to hurt is their shareholders. This week I'm going to educate them on three reasons they need open source.
CNET: Dell is being accused of making false promises to customers to drive sales, according to a lawsuit filed Tuesday by New York Attorney General Andrew Cuomo.

Bill Hilf Blogs: A few folks have emailed or called me about statements I said in the Bangkok Post about the ‘end of Linux’ and ‘there is no free software movement.’ My statements were shaped in a sensationalist way, not surprisingly, this isn’t the first time the press has used shock value to get headlines. It then hit Slashdot and the blogosphere where a couple hundred people have called me every name under the sun. I have a tough skin – need to in this job. But days like this suck, to be honest.

DesktopLinux: Many users can't avoid Windows applications for one or two tasks, or a game -- and that's where CodeWeavers Inc. comes in with its CrossOver platform. CrossOver 6.1, released May 15, enables enables Linux PCs and Apple Mactels to run more Windows applications and games, and with higher 3D performance.
Journal Of An Open Sourcee: Shortly after receiving a comment on my other blog (Brazilian Portuguese only) from Armando Silva about an educational Live CD, my curiosity got the best of me and I just had to check it out.

Lxpages: Most people don’t even know that running processes at at a different priority is an option. Many have never even heard of the nice command. In this article, I will discuss what the nice command can do for your processes.

Nuxified: Ken Starks and Bob Moore are trying to raise money to put the GNU/Linux advertisement on one of the cars that will be participating in the biggest racing event on the planet, Indianapolis 500. However the project has been at least slightly controversial. I will attempt to outline some of the reasons some in the community may have not to support this project.
Phoronix: XGI Technology is still in business, but what has happened to them? We once saw hope in them for providing discrete graphics processors to take on the NVIDIA and ATI duopoly, but they have since discontinued their Volari 8 series.
fool.co.uk: Firstly, you'll need an Operating System (OS). Even if your computer has an old version of Windows, you may find that it's not supported anymore (so you won't be able to get help easily if you run into problems) or it doesn't work well with new technology. One of the best we've found is Ubuntu.

/home/liquidat: Like other distributions, OpenSuse has a group of people working at a faster boot system. Atm there is no discussion about a new init system but about improvements on all fronts: kernel, init scripts, unnecessary system calls, etc.
