tectonic.co.za: OpenOffice.org 3.0, the next major release of the open source office suite, is scheduled to be released in September. Which means that it is pretty much guaranteed to be included in the next release of Ubuntu 8.10, Mandriva 2009 and Fedora 10. Until then it is easy enough to test out the beta. OpenOffice 3.0 has a number of new features.
gus3.typepad.com: Part of my "economic stimulus check" went to a 500GB SATA drive. I quickly settled on one goal: find the fastest journaling filesystem (FS) for my SLAMD64 dual-core computer, with 2G of memory. My testing focused on three main areas: filesystem, disk I/O scheduler, and CPU speed.

The plan offers a long-term strategy for moving GNOME development forward and defining future goals for the desktop.
As a long time user of Linux, and reader of Linux Magazines, Websites and Blogs, many see the current Linux situation as being a dawn of a new horizon. Essentially the release of the EEE PC, the timely release of Vista and Ubuntu have all kick started the “Linux Revolution” for the Linux desktop.

reghardware.co.uk: Asus has blamed Intel not Microsoft for the apparent absence of the Atom-based Eee PC 901 from UK suppliers' shelves.
ruminationsonthedigitalrealm.org: As your experience in Linux grows, you learn one thing: don’t buy new hardware or peripherals without checking whether it’s supported by your favorite distribution. It saves both money and disappointments. I wanted to buy a decent mediaplayer. One of the players that had both positive reviews and a strong indication of Linux support was the Creative Zen Vision:M.
computerworlduk.com: One of Linus Torvalds' greatest contributions to free software – and, indeed, to software in general – came about purely by chance. As he told me back in 1996, as he reflected on how the Linux kernel had come about and grown:
blogs.techrepublic.com: Recently, I have been evaluating various gateways for Internet facing devices for the small office or home office (SOHO) over the last few weeks. This functionality in this space continues to impress me, and the best part is that a lot of it is available for free.
tectonic.co.za: KDE stalwart and African developer Uwe Thiem passed away on Friday afternoon. Uwe was a long-standing developer of KDE and an ardent advocate of free and open source software.

blogs.techrepublic.com: I’ve been a fan of gOS for a while now. I’ve been running their Rocket release for about a year. It’s based on Ubuntu and has the benefit of pre-installed Enlightenment. It’s solid, runs well on lower-end hardware, and…it’s Enlightenment (what more do you want?)
kdedevelopers.org: Like KDE4, KDevelop has seen much work on essential internal mechanisms (much like the pillars of KDE), the power of which will become evident over the next year or so. Progress has been great recently. In today's blog I'll concentrate on language support.
lkml.org: So it's been almost three months since 2.6.25 (87 days to be exact, I think), making this a longer-than-usual release cycle. Or maybe it just feels that way, and we're always getting close to three months these days. But it's out there now.
headshotgamer.com: These early snapshots are important to the Linux gaming community. The reason for this is simple; Gamers are hardware junkies. Newer kernels support newer hardware and the newer the distro, the newer the packages.
ubuntu.com: The Ubuntu Weekly Newsletter, Issue 99 for the weeks July 6th - July 12th, 2008 is now available. In this issue we cover: special 100th issue of the UWN next week, Intrepid Alpha 2 released, Ubuntu stats, new Kubuntu website, Ubuntu in US retailers, and much, much more!
debaday.debian.net: Email-Reminder is a simple tool to define events for which you want to receive a reminder by email. These reminders (sent out daily by a small cronjob) can be either on the day of the event and/or a few days beforehand.
itwire.com: Virtualisation is a technology that can work wonders: provide a testing environment, enhance your processing power, consolidate your computing resources, decrease running costs, preserve legacy apps and more! Here’s how virtualisation can benefit you and why the Linux route really beats out the competition.
apcmag.com: Penguin-powered mini notebooks are selling like hotcakes. But will they finally bring Linux into the mainstream? Don’t count on it.
