salatti.net: Here is a list of useful disk utilities a friend of mine sent me by mail. Not sure where they come from, but I want to share them with you.
kevincarmony.blogspot: When John Jones was here this past week, we got to thinking about the silly videos we did for Linspire over the years. I thought it would be fun to let others see them again, as just a bit of Lindows/Linspire history.
troy-at-kde.livejourna: There is an old saying that "Any press is good press", amongst the marketing types. Well, I was checking on KDE in various news sources today, and we must be getting a lot of "good" press. Is bad press still "good" press?
kerneltrap.org: "I regularly run and post various benchmarks comparing POHMELFS, NFS, XFS and Ext4, [the] main goal of POHMELFS at this stage is to be essentially as fast as [the] underlying local filesystem. And it is..." explained Evgeniy Polyakov, suggesting that the POHMELFS networking filesystem performs 10% to 300% faster than NFS, depending on the file operation.
distro-review.com: To be perfectly honest with you, my original intention was to review Kubuntu 8.04, but with the brand new shiny Linux Mint 5 hitting the streets late last Sunday evening around midnight UK time, Kubuntu will have to take a back seat for now.
Aaron Seigo: In describing what we're doing with folderview I used text and achieved a rather spectacular fail grade with some of my readers. So then I tried pictures. The result was a bit better, but still not crystal clear for everyone. We came to the idea that maybe a screencast would help.
computerworld.com: IBM said today that it doesn't plan to open-source its DB2 database, despite a published report quoting a company executive in the U.K. saying that an open-source move might become necessary.
linuxplanet.com: I've used Fedora in the past on and off but for some reason it's never quite stuck with me. I've often found it buggy and a little too unstable due to it's experimental nature. I was interested to see how this release would perform on my Dell XPS m1330n, which I actually bought with Ubuntu.
internetnews.com: With the new Firefox 3 Web browser set for release tomorrow, tens of millions of Mozilla Firefox users on Windows will get an update notification directly from Mozilla to upgrade. But most Linux may be left in the dark, at least temporarily.
itwire.com: For many years now, Linux has been a remarkable success story at the server level. However, at the desktop level, the tale is patchy - there are some success stories but for the most part one factor or another holds back the operating system from repeating its feats.
arstechnica.com: We tested Songbird 0.6 on Ubuntu 8.04 to see how it compares to other open source media players. Although we encountered some bugs during our testing, the overall Songbird experience proved compelling. It has some unique features and offers a very high level of extensibility.
suseblog.com: Please welcome our guest today, Clint Savage, Founder of the Utah Open Source Foundation, and Fedora Ambassador. He is also a Linux Instructor by way of profession. Having met him in person and finding him a neat and interesting person.
press release: Novell announced today it is the first Linux* vendor to appear on the U.S. Department of Defense Unified Capabilities Approved Products List, as SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10 Service Pack 2 (SP2) has received the Internet Protocol Version 6 (IPv6) Special Interoperability Certification from the department's Defense Information System Agency.

cnet.com: While the computing giant has no immediate plans to open-source DB2, market conditions may make it unavoidable, according to Chris Livesey, IBM's U.K. director of information management software.
anojrs.blogspot: I have always been a great fan of Opera. Ever since its first version, Opera has always been the dark horse in the browser wars. Opera has released v9.5 of it's desktop browser with a host of new features. Here we discuss installation, setup and the great and not-so-great features of the linux version of this release.
blog.internetnews.com/skerner: Red Hat has announced their Red Hat Innovation Award winners this AM, it's a process that I was invited to participate in as a Judge this year. I got to see all of the raw applications from companies and groups hoping to win recognition for their innovative use of Open Source technologies.
vivapinkfloyd.blogspot: Currently, it's very obvious Amarok 2 is in the alpha phase. The major thing that changed is the interface, which looks nicer and more modern now. Currently, the collection browser is in the left and the playlist itself is located to the right side of Amarok's window.
zdnet.co.uk: The UK's educational IT advisory body has awarded the contract for overseeing a schools open-source promotion project to a consultancy that appears to have little experience in open source, setting off an angry reaction from rival bidders.
screenage.de/blog: Circular Application Menu for Gnome is a Google Code hosted project providing a different access method to your Gnome menu. Actually all it does, is displaying the menu as circles. But as it is different, it is somehow attractive and therefore let’s give it a try.
