pthree.org: “Linux users use Linux because they hate Windows. BSD users use BSD because they love Unix.” I can’t emphasize how true that statement is. I’m subscribe to several mailing lists, I subscribe to hundreds of RSS feeds, I visit forums semi-regularly, I’m on IRC 24/7 in plenty of channels. You want to know what I see?

blog.flameeyes.eu: So everybody says that CMake is great because it’s faster. Of course CMake achieves speed with an approach different from the one autotools have, that is, they don’t discover features, they apply knowledge. Hey it’s a valid method as any other, if you actually know what you are doing, and if you can keep up with variants and all the rest. Another thing that it does is to avoid the re-linking during the install phase.
theinquirer.net: LINUX HAS MADE headway in Microsoft's UK heartland, the PC sales channel. The number of machines shipped with Linux preloaded on them has multiplied a whopping 28 times since Microsoft launched its Vista operating system in January 2007.

itwire.com: A total solar eclipse will begin in northern Canada early Friday morning, and sweep through Greenland, the Arctic, Russia, Mongolia, and China. A partial solar eclipse will be seen in the northeastern parts of North America, and much of Europe and Asia.
redhatmagazine.com: Here’s the final installment of Bill Nottingham’s series based on the talk he gave at this year’s Red Hat Summit. Find out about the latest and greatest Fedora™ developments… and the future of Red Hat® Enterprise Linux® from this experienced engineer.
bmighty.com/blog: When you work online, words are like clothes: Use them carelessly, and you might as well show up for a business meeting in dirty flip-flops and an "I'm with stupid" T-shirt. Fortunately, Firefox makes it easy to spruce up your online "wardrobe" with all sorts of language-enhancing features.
scienceblogs.com: We can assume that Shuttleworth is being optimistic and pro-Linux because he is so invested in it. So I won't write off what he has to say, but we will not be surprised at his exuberance. Vaughan-Nichols bothers to make a comparison between the Mac system and the Linux system and bases his conclusion on that. Sorry, Stevo, but that's dumb.
secretengineer.wordpress: I just installed the Twitter client TweetDeck on my Ubuntu laptop (Fiesty Fawn v. 7.04). In the short time I have played with it, it seems to be working as robustly as my window-based app. The Adobe AIR framework is in alpha for Linux and so it is anyone’s guess what ultimately will happen.
liquidat.wordpress: Recently Daniel Phillips announced that he is developing a new file system, Tux3. It plans to be a modern file system on level with ZFS and the currently also still in development Btrfs.
linux.com: Yesterday I presented Bonnie++ and IOzone benchmarks for a solid state drive in a client machine and discussed the relative merits of purchasing an SSD over a set of hard disks costing the same money. Today I'll look at deploying and taking advantage of the extremely fast seek time of the SSD on a server.
linuxgeeksunited.blogspot: There are certain situations I can agree virtualization can be useful and efficient. It is a concept called "planned obsolescence" and was generally made notorious by AT&T after Ma Bell broke up. The same technological snakeoil is sold by computer and electronics makers today.
efytimes.com: This is going to give a hard time to any Vista or Mac. KDE brings to GNU/Linux the cool and bling factor with a complete arsenal of applications and tools with which you can conquer even Mars.
internetnews.com: Not all Linux distributions are made with the same components, which can make it difficult for software developers to write applications for multiple Linux distributions. That's where the Linux Standards Base (LSB) comes into play.
itwire.com: Virtualisation is on the brink of turning operating systems into a commodity item. It may be realistic to see software applications shipped as virtual computer images in the near future. Linux has much to benefit from this, with a repeat of the phenomenal adoption rate it has enjoyed since the ASUS Eee PC.
linux.com: While OpenOffice.org Base is good for storing and querying data, it doesn't provide any easy way to chart information. This is exactly what Calc does best, with its dedicated chart module. If you want to visualize data stored in a Base database, you can write an OOo Basic macro that pulls data from a database, inserts it into a Calc spreadsheet, and then creates a chart. Here's how.
blogs.zdnet: A rock slide, power outage and loss of a top engineer of Firefox 3 have some attendees of Mozilla’s 2008 summer summit wondering if the ghosts in Redmond aren’t raining on their parade. The Firefox summit is behing held at, ahem, Whistler, the code name of Microsoft’s Windows XP.
blogs.techrepublic.com: Here’s your countdown of Linux hits for the week, plus one Novell-produced video, spoofing the Mac-PC ads. Do you suppose anyone will ever make one of these ads or parodies that doesn’t make the “winner” completely smarmy and annoying?
vizzzion.org: Now KDE 4.1 is out, I've played around a bit with different themes. I've installed the KDE artwork package, and a couple of themes via GetHotNewStuff. KDE's coloring system has seen quite a lot of love, as has Plasma's theming engine. The results are quite impressive, as you can see in the screenshots.
