linuxbsdos.com: Pardus is a Linux, desktop-oriented operating system. The latest release, Pardus 2009, was made available for download a few weeks ago.
mcadcafe.com: I just returned from attending the O’Reilly Open Source Convention (OSCON) 2009 in San Jose, CA. I honestly didn’t know what to expect when I got there, but by the time I left I was very impressed by what has been accomplished.
openbytes.wordpress: Lets face it, the days of shelves bowing under the weight of DVD cases & CD’s is coming to an end. Whilst GCstar won’t put all your CD’s into their correct boxes, nor will it put them in an alphabetical order on your shelves, what it will do is allow you to document your entire collection on a database.

idreamoflinux.com: Gillian was assigned to research GNU/Linux and found out that it would meet all the needs her department required and could be easily used instead of Microsoft Windows. They used it as a leverage to get the Microsoft representative to get them a much better deal.
colin.guthr.ie: Over the years I’ve listened to several opinions expressing doubt over the Linux sound stack. There are lots of ill informed comments out there concerning various things sound related, both positive and negative, but more often than not commentators miss out very important aspects of a modern, multi-user, desktop sound stack.
blogs.computerworld.com: People have always been able to build their own Linux distributions. That's one reason why there are over a hundred Linux distributions today. But, building them easily to do a particular job and with major vendor support.... well, that's not so easy.
blogs.zdnet.com: So everything is being resolved, CentOS is getting its act together, and we can all go about our business. Nothing to see here, move along. Move along. Right? Wrong.
blog.eracc.com: I have once again run across a “too many versions!” comment on another site. In this one a person going by the moniker “matt_chsi” states there are too many versions of Linux and that is why adoption of Linux is so poor.
climbing-the-hill.blogspot: When I was in University, not long after discovering a thing called "Linux" and all the wonderful free software that came with it, I fell in love with Open Source. The ethics of openness and meritocracy really appealed to me.
soliverez.com.ar: We are in the final steps toward releasing KMyMoney 1.0. It has been over 2 years since the last stable release and over that time the development team has been busy building a lot of features, while maintaining and even improving stability and performance.
everyjoe.com: If you’re running a training center, whether it concerns distance education or not, you need tools to help you manage your classes and facilitate discussions.

blog.lynxworks.eu: I am a heavy web user. Everything from webmail to banking, if I can do it on-line I will. For years I have used Firefox. Sadly on smaller platforms, its starting to appear in need of a regular appearance at the gym.
itwire.com: One deterrent to switching operating systems is the inability to perform tasks with a minimum of fuss. Unfortunately, for Linux, doing something as natural as playing a movie on DVD doesn’t just work out-of-the-box.
This tutorial will explain you how to boot from a BTRFS filesystem with kernel 2.6.31-RC4 and BTRFS 0.19. BTRFS is a new filesystem with some really interesting features like online defragmenting and snapshots. BTRFS is an experimental filesystem, use at your own risk. The kernel used is also experimental.
linuxconfig.org: As you may probably know, Linux supports various filesystems such as ext2, ext3, ext4, xfs, reiserfs, jfs among others. Few users really consider this part of a system, selecting default options of their distribution's installer. In this article, I will give some reasons for a better consideration of the file-system and of its layout.
