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.
ostatic.com: Let's say that you've decided to start using a new programming language or framework. How can you learn what to do, or take some initial steps? Years ago, the obvious answer was the buy a book, or perhaps a magazine. Today, you're likely to read an online tutorial, or one of the many blogs that have sprung up about many of these technologies.
softpedia.com: The Redmond company, once the epitome of the proprietary software business model, stopped nothing short of declaring an all out victory over Linux and open source at the company's Financial Analyst Meeting 2008 the past week.

headshotgamer.com: Newer distros mean newer kernels, which give better support for new hardware and newer distros have newer packages - importantly, game packages. Hot off the press, I downloaded the KD4 combo live/install CD for x86-32.
gaetandhont.wordpress: I eventually decided myself to install Ubuntu, but the key point is: I want to keep my laptop with XP because I have installed the softwares that support my needs. I don’t want to play with partition resizing and all the likes to install Ubuntu, nor to start from zero with only an Ubuntu installation.
reddevil62-techhead.blogspot: INSTALLING Slackware is a Linux rite of passage. It is the computing equivalent of wandering off alone into the bush for a month armed with nothing more than a pointy stick and grim determination. My own Slackware experience was such a tense affair that, once the KDE desktop loaded, I jumped around the room whooping like I had just killed my first antelope.
phoronix.com: The Super Micro C2SEA is an ATX motherboard that uses the Intel G45 Chipset in conjunction with an ICH10 Southbridge. This motherboard provides Intel GMA X4500HD graphics with VGA and HDMI interfaces. In this article, we are looking at the performance of this new Intel graphics processor under Linux.

blogs.cdswebs: I’m glad that I found PCLOS, because it’s definitely been worth using to me. Both machines I have it on are set to dual boot either it or Windows, but I find myself booting to Windows less and less as PCLOS is just so much more efficient.
osweekly.com: Over the past few years, I have heard a lot of noise about how great it would be to see KDE coming to Windows world. Despite this happening on its own, it really means little with the exception of perhaps one application - amaroK.
practical-tech.com: Color me surprised. Dana Blankenhorn, a well-known writer about Linux and open source recently asked for someone—anyone–to send him a loaner Linux laptop to replace his now dead Windows laptop. What, he didn’t already have one?
