linux.com: IPCop is a specialized Linux distribution whose sole purpose is to safeguard the computers and networks it is installed on. The distro proudly claims, "The Bad Packets Stop Here!" I recently installed IPCop 1.4.16 on my SOHO LAN, and found that it accomplishes what it sets out to do.
gimp.org: After four months of hard work we are proud to announce another release of the user manual. It features documentation for GIMP 2.4, new content, and an alternate CSS stylesheet for HTML.
my.opera.com: After creating the Gtk-enabled pluginwrapper for Kestrel Alpha, the second UNIX plugin milestone is reached. We can reveal that we have added support for windowless plugins!
blogs.zdnet: The MacOS X server discussion here two weeks ago included a comment from someone pushing the Linux/Unix distinction, my response pointing out that Linux is Unix and that people changing from something like HP-UX to Linux are changing Unix suppliers rather than OS architectures.
linuxlookup: Mandriva today introduced the 2008 Mandriva Flash 4GB, the newest member of the Mandriva Flash family that lets you take your entire desktop with you wherever you go.
Raiden's Realm: For those who like to do a lot of work on the command line, or for those wanting a much simpler approach to taking desktop screenshots, there's scrot. Scrot is short for "screen shot" and is a command line tool for doing exactly that.

mozillalinks.org: So far, the most useful new feature I’ve found in Firefox 3 is the much improved location bar autocomplete that unlike Firefox 2 which only looked for web addresses in my history, this one looks on visited and bookmarked page titles and tags along with web addresses.
linux.com: Slackware Linux today features a powerful and easy-to-use package management system, but making Slackware packages has not always been straightforward. Now Slackware application developers have a tool for easily making Slackware packages from source code and precompiled binaries. Src2pkg, now in version 1.6, very nearly lives up to its author's tag of being Slackware's "magic package maker."
ittoolbox blogs: This is a rant. If you are easily offended then don't read this. I repeat. Don't read this. I am going to be ranting about how fan boyz and girlz go on and on and on about how easy it is to install programs in windows and how hard it is to install programs in Linux.
etnews.co.kr: South and North Korea team up to develop a version of ‘Hana Linux (tentatively named)’ and set standards.
liquidat: The first KDE 4 release will come along with several major changes compared to KDE 3.x. While explanations for these changes have been posted at several places before there is a central list missing which explains the reasons to normal users. This post lists some hot topics and tries to shed some light on the reasons behind certain decisions..

mrzonbu.wordpress: Over at The Inquirer they are reporting that the sub-$200 gOS Linux PC from Everex is selling out at Walmart. How did this happen? How did Everex/gOS get the slip on Zonbu, when gOS is an inferior (albeit promising) desktop experience for new users? Is this Betamax versus VHS all over again? I have a hunch how it happened.

the register: Dell agreed to ship PCs and laptops with the Ubuntu operating system after more than 130,000 people promoted the notion on the company's IdeaStorm web site. It would seem, however, that only a fraction of these zealots were willing to back their votes with cash.
redhatmagazine.com: While you deal with your daily chores, you may not have much chance or time to dig deep into Red Hat® Enterprise Linux® source code. This guide will show you how you can enjoy the archeology of the linux kernel by digging into source code. I have prepared a fun little tour in which you can learn kernel source code structure.
BBC: Until recently there was nothing that marked out Galadima primary school as anything out of the ordinary. But in March this year, the scruffy primary became part of a remarkable experiment. It was the first in Africa to get its hands on the so-called $100 laptop.

linux.com: For many average users, GNU/Linux support for PDF files may seem reasonably advanced. They can create PDF files in programs like OpenOffice.org, read them with programs like Kpdf, and edit them in programs like pdftk or PDFedit. But that's not the whole story.
brain core: It's a pity to see that members of the KDE community are incapable of making a difference between the utterance 'I hate it' and 'It sucks'. I also think it is a pity that a very verbal and visible member of that community seems fit to dispense with politeness in his reaction.
