Penguin Pete: May 9, 2007 helios posts to LXer, hatching plan to "Digg storm" Digg.com with the Indy Star article about tux500. (do I even have to ask how it got there?)
amarok.kde.org: Then you're in luck: The Amarok project is giving away 20 tickets for LinuxTag 2007! All you have to do is head over to our site and participate in our little contest.
cbronline: Last week I noted that a new explanation had emerged as to why Novell entered into its patent agreement with Microsoft: because Novell engineers “required sanctioned access to Microsoft’s code in order to develop open source interoperability without violating MSFT's IP.”
mozilla links: Firefox users who like a clean desktop may already know about MinimizeToTray, a extension developed by Mook and Brad Peterson for Firefox, Thunderbird or SeaMonkey on Windows platforms. FireTray, developed by Duo, does the same for Firefox users on Linux.
Jacek Furmankiewicz: So, Ubuntu 7.04 is out and everyone is raving how good it is. Got to agree, it's the best Linux desktop distro ever and has some great solutions to your regular pesky Linux issues. Nevertheless, it is not perfect and here are some of my pet peeves.
montana linux: Linuxfest Northwest has been an annual event since 1999 held at Bellingham Technical College in Bellingham Washington which is approximately 90 miles North of Seattle. To allow for the largest participation, it is held on a weekend. Linuxfest Northwest 2007 was held on April 28-29th and was attended by approximately 900 people.
lunapark6: More than any other Linux release that I have encountered, the quality of Mandriva 2007 Spring Edition depends largely on which version you download.
Linux.com: One of the features that many users dearly miss in OpenOffice.org is a grammar checker. Fortunately, LanguageTool fills the void, adding grammar-checking capabilities to OpenOffice.org.
suserants: This online course is done via email. It is completely free. People register for the class, and receive an ebook via email every few days containing the next class of the course. Its goal is to be the most basic introduction to Linux possible.
tectonic: Nine years after version 2.0 of the popular open source bug-tracking system was launched, Bugzilla 3.0 has been released with the same statement as its predecessor, "We like the new version much better, and hope you will too."
ubuntu geek: The ext3 or third extended filesystem is a journalled file system that is commonly used by the Linux operating system. ReiserFS is a general-purpose, journaled computer file system.
tectonic: The Second Open Source Think Tank was held in March in California. A report on the events findings has now been released.
David Barth: We are now taking a short break before the next run: Mandriva Linux 2008. But during this break, we are making several changes in preparation for the next release. First, I'm reorganizing the teams in the Engineering, promoting Anne Nicolas as Engineering Director.
CBRonline: Novell and Microsoft have announced another dozen customers signing up to their interoperability agreement through which Microsoft is distributing vouchers for SUSE Linux Enterprise support.
the Inquirer: AFTER A SMALL name change the ground has finally been set for arrival of mega-hit title for this year, Unreal Tournament III. This game is being finalised as we speak, and haiving ditched UT2k7 to become UT III, it looks even more impressive now.
bbspot: The Linux distribution, Ubuntu, has grown quickly because of its ease of use. It makes the normally confusing Linux something even a Windows user can use. However, the Ubuntu developers are aiming even higher for the future. The next release, "Gutsy Gibbon," will be even easier to use, but the "Harry Hamlin" release will actually do your work for you.
Linux.com: The words "fault-tolerant Web hosting" bring to mind hosting centers with multiple redundant power supplies, complex networking, and big bills. However, by taking advantage of the underlying fault-tolerance of the Internet, you can get a surprising level of reliability for little cost.
ZDNet: So after my last Edubuntu debacle (With Feisty Fawn comes a new Edubuntu) I decided to wait until I could devote a bit of time to a proper install.
how-to-geek: Every Geek uses Gmail… it’s pretty much required. And now you can set Gmail as the default client in Ubuntu without any extra software.
This tutorial shows how you can set up a Mandriva 2007 Spring Free (Mandriva 2007.1) desktop that is a full-fledged replacement for a Windows desktop, i.e. that has all the software that people need to do the things they do on their Windows desktops. The advantages are clear: you get a secure system without DRM restrictions that works even on old hardware, and the best thing is: all software comes free of charge.
