helios: The recent announcement posted on a once-great Linux news site, among other publications gleefully announced that a computer from Everex is selling at Walmart for 200 bucks AND it is running linux. Well...kinda...and to me and many others, this is the rub.
451 CAOS Theory: The US might be busy giving thanks but work life goes on for the rest of us in the ROTW, and comments made today by Viviane Reding, European Commissioner for information and society, indicate that perhaps Europe should be taking advantage of the fact the Americans are having a day off to focus on its use of open source and how it could be used to bolster the European economy.
CyberOrg: We’re jumping on to the PulseAudio bandwagon, same as Fedora(Interview with Lennart Poettering). To prepare the groundwork for that move, Rodrigo and I worked on porting all the required packages and getting it working on openSUSE.
mozillalinks.org: This week Mozilla released the first beta of Firefox 3. Originally scheduled for mid July, the delay responds to the very long list of features this new version brings. Eight alphas and an estimated 14 months under development are both firsts for a Firefox upgrade but again are necessary for the amount of improvements and new features Firefox 3 will bring.

linux.com: If you have a fondness for old arcade games and want to play them again, try the Multiple Arcade Machine Emulator (MAME), a free emulator that lets you recreate the look and feel of old arcade game systems in software. While it's written for Windows, you can run this open source application under Linux.
For the past month we had been running the 2007 Linux Graphics Survey at Phoronix where we polled users to find out what display hardware they use, what their driver choice(s) are, and their other preferences as it pertains to Linux desktop users on the visual front. We received over 20,000 submissions and have the results to share with you.

desktoplinux: What do Linux users want from their desktop? The Linux Foundation's survey has the answers.
interopnews.com: There has been a meme going around in the Linux world that Vista is really a dog and that Microsoft is only managing to make its numbers by jamming the new OS down the throats of unwilling customers. But I don't have to use Vista to know that it's a lot more than a dog of an OS.
wine-review.blogspot: Microsoft DirectX is a collection of application programming interfaces for handling tasks related to multimedia, especially game programming and video, on Microsoft platforms.
stompbox.typepad: Over the past few years, like lots of Linux users, I have become increasingly frustrated with the performance of Firefox in Linux. Though I haven't been as vocal as others of the state of Firefox, it was clear that most of us were just sick and tired of Firefox being a "good Windows browser that happened to run in Linux."
LWN: The OpenDocument Foundation was formed in 2005, with the mission "to provide a conduit for funding and support for individual contributors to participate in ODF development" at the standards body OASIS. So, eyebrows were naturally raised when Sam Hiser, wrote on October 16 that it was no longer supporting ODF:
iTWire: Last night I downloaded the latest beta release from Mozilla, Firefox 3 Beta 1, meaning to just have a look-see so that I could pen a few impressions. Since then, I haven't bothered to load up Firefox 2 because, even though it's a pre-production test version, Firebox 3 Beta 1 is a mighty fine browser.
linux.com: Gogh is an extremely lightweight drawing program designed for pressure-sensitive devices. Despite its simplicity, it packs in a lot of features and a lot of fun.
phoronix: Minutes after the release of the RadeonHD v0.0.3 driver, the initial-randr branch for x86-video-radeonhd was merged into master. What this means is that you no longer need to checkout this separate branch.
LinuxToday: There have been a couple of thought-provoking columns that have been published recently that I wanted to add my own two cents. The first column is the most recently published: my colleague Bruce Byfield's piece "It's Time to Get Over Microsoft" that ran over on Datamation. The other article I wanted to mention was the Linux Magazine opinion piece "Is 2008 the Year of the Linux Desktop?", written by my friend and co-author Joe "Zonker" Brockmeier.
kmandla.wordpress: I don’t follow the PCLinuxOS crowd. So I’ve procrastinated in trying out the Fluxbox version of PCLinuxOS. I have to admit that it’s very attractive.
