ruminations: Two years ago I ran into Sabayon Linux for the first time. Version 3.2 was about to be released and I gave Sabayon a spin on my laptop. I wasn’t very lucky with later releases which simply refused to be installed. Two weeks ago Sabayon Linux Four Oh! was released. How far did Sabayon progress over the last two years?
Jon maddog Hall: While "Penguin Awareness Day" officially has little to do with Linux, there is really no reason why we could not use this day to make people aware of our favorite operating system and Free Software in general.
saigonnezumi.com: I have been wanting to try out Sidux Linux for a long time. I have tested it but since it only comes with the KDE and XFCE window managers, I never used beyond the testing phase. Then about two weeks ago, Mario Behling, who I met through FOSS Bridge here in Vietnam, introduced me to LXDE.
blog.programmerslog.com: I am in the process of making my desktop computer into a work computer by removing Windows XP and going down the Ubuntu (8.10 Intrepid Ibex) route. I thought I’d share some of the problems I had.
linux-gamers.net: The Smokin' Guns game started its life under the name of Western Quake³. It was originally developed by a team known as Iron Claw Interactive. They released WQ3 beta 2.0 in 2003, after which development all but ceased. With the release of the stand alone version in 2008, the game was renamed to Smokin' Guns,
junauza.com: If you are using Linux, there are plenty of backup software to choose from. I have here a list of some of the best free and open source backup software that you may want to check out.
seekingalpha.com: The open source blogosphere featured two articles the last week of December 2008 that inaccurately draw software-market history timelines from which the authors then inaccurately position the place of open source software in the information technology (IT) market. I doubt if the statements are intentionally misleading; they are most likely the result of ignorance or sloppiness.
reformedmusings.wordpress: I saw some comments on a Linux board recently about KDE 4.1. They said that Kubuntu did a poor job of integrating KDE because Ubuntu with Gnome is the Canonical flagship and that’s where most of the effort goes. That peaked my curiosity.
tmpfs is a virtual, RAM-backed filesystem. It’s lightning-fast, making tmpfs a viable choice for your profile directory. This document gives some tips on how to mount your Firefox profile in a tmpfs partition while minimizing the downsides of tmpfs.
This article explains how to tether a Blackberry phone - use it as a modem, via a USB cable - in Linux, covering Mandriva, Ubuntu, OpenSUSE and Fedora. It also mentions some other things that the Barry project lets you do with your Blackberry.

castrojo.wordpress: I am going to follow this guy’s saga on switching to Ubuntu for a week. I like his writing style and sarcastic sense of humor. However I found the responses to his problems to be all too common these days.
informationweek.com/blog: Two responses to things I've written recently are worth commenting on. Both were responses to my post about Windows 7 being more of a previous-version-of-Windows-killer than a Linux-killer -- and both bring up further points to be argued and defended.
It has always amazed me how many people pirate. As the well-known anti-piracy video clip says, “You wouldn’t steal a car, you wouldn’t steal a handbag,” but people do regularly steal software and other copyrighted materials. They seem to have an innate belief that software should be free.
Technically, pirates don’t steal - they infringe copyright. Neither do they rape, pillage, sink ships, or make people walk the plank into shark-infested waters. The “pirate” label seems to be part of an unsuccessful campaign to encourage people to pay for intellectual property. Calling people names rarely works.
phoronix.com: With the 2.6.29 merge window still open, earlier this week he started a new thread entitled Btrfs for mainline.
iarematt.com: One of the first things I did when I moved from Vista to Ubuntu was install a nice looking theme. The default Ubuntu theme is pretty decent, but I dont like the brown and when browsing posts like this and this, I knew I wanted a sexier look for my laptop.
blog.i-no.de: With 2.6.28 came ext4, which I've been using on several not-so-important filesystems for a while now. I thought I'd kill two birds with one stone and switch back to ext4 on a crypted volume. Shouldn't be all that hard, right?
tuxtraining.com: This HOWTO will explain how to install the Amazon MP3 Downloader application under openSUSE 11 (both 11.0 and 11.1). Unfortunately, as of this writing, Amazon only provides a package for openSUSE 10.3, which will not work directly with 11.0. But you can get the downloader working under 11 with some manual steps.
armageddon08.wordpress: The first step to start using GNU/Linux is to find out which distribution is the right one for you. So how do you go about choosing the right distro for your computer. Let’s find out.
