techradar.com: Have you been clinging to KDE 3.5 like a polar bear to the last Arctic ice shelf? If so, now's a good time to consider jumping on to the mainland. The recently released KDE 4.1 is a vast improvement over the original.
polishlinux.org: KDE4 isn’t the only application under development rush in the KDE world. KDevelop 4 and KOffice 2 are also being migrated to Qt4 and enriched with new features. This time I’m going to check what KOffice 2 Beta 2 can offer.
itwire.com: Ubuntu fans rejoice, the latest release is upon us in the form of version 8.10, Intrepid Ibex. But can't you just run a software update in Hardy Heron? I'll tell you what's different down to the package level between an upgraded Hardy installation and a fresh Intrepid installation so you can evaluate for yourself.
mjg59.livejournal: First, let me make one thing clear. This isn't constructive criticism. This is just criticism. It's directed at software that's so wrong-headed that there's no way to make it significantly better, and everyone involved would be much better spending their time doing something else instead of trying to fix any of what I'm about to describe.
itwire.com: On October 25, 2008, the Linux Hater's Blog reached the "eof", or end of file. But if you've been hassled endlessly by Linux lovers and are sick to death of Linux this and Linux that, fear not - the Linux Hater's Redux is born.
kdedevelopers.org: Discussions about the usefulness of the Plasma desktop toolbox arise regularly. Usually it focus on the "Zoom Out"/Activities feature which as also Plasma developers admit is not as far implemented and nicely integrated as of KDE 4.1 as everyone wants it to be.
phoronix.com: Phoronix Test Suite 1.4 "Orkdal" will be released tomorrow, and while this release is coming just two months after the release of Phoronix Test Suite 1.2, there are in fact quite a few changes for this Q4'08 release.
chrisjohnston.org: Ubuntu 8.10 (Intrepid Ibex) has been out for 3 days now, so I figure it’s time to look into the future at Ubuntu 9.04, the Jaunty Jackalope.
This tutorial shows how to set up an Ubuntu Intrepid Ibex (Ubuntu 8.10) server that offers all services needed by ISPs and hosters: Apache web server (SSL-capable), Postfix mail server with SMTP-AUTH and TLS, BIND DNS server, Proftpd FTP server, MySQL server, Courier POP3/IMAP, Quota, Firewall, etc.
For the last month, every time insert one of the four pieces of 512mb ram, Windows (Vista and XP) get a blue screen of death on start up. But, just out of interest, I decided to see if the problem also persists with OpenSuse Linux. So I booted up the system and selected OpenSuse. OpenSuse started up (and worked) like a charm, like there was nothing wrong.
debaday.debian.net: For a long time 2D animation software has been dominated by proprietary software. Synfig increases the 2D animation software available with a brilliant and professional piece of software.
saigonnezumi.com: As the majority of BSD/Linux users, I use X.org for my X Window System. I decided to try the nvidia driver on my Arch Linux desktop. Arch has a good wiki to get nvidia with 3D rendering to work. I got it to work and was quite happy, for about a month at least. So what happened?
dailyartisan.com: During my years of Linux advocacy, I am usually asked a very basic question “what makes Linux better than [insert OS here].” I usually start with explaining that there are two fundamental schools of thought in the programming world. The conversation naturally goes from there to giving examples of Open Source programs this person might be using unwittingly.
cookingwithlinux.com: I went to my local Toys "R" Us and asked about "sub notebooks". The guy said that we didn't have anything except "kid computers" I looked over in the direction he was pointing and saw the "Eee" display.
