reghardware.co.uk: Asus has blamed Intel not Microsoft for the apparent absence of the Atom-based Eee PC 901 from UK suppliers' shelves.
ruminationsonthedigitalrealm.org: As your experience in Linux grows, you learn one thing: don’t buy new hardware or peripherals without checking whether it’s supported by your favorite distribution. It saves both money and disappointments. I wanted to buy a decent mediaplayer. One of the players that had both positive reviews and a strong indication of Linux support was the Creative Zen Vision:M.
computerworlduk.com: One of Linus Torvalds' greatest contributions to free software – and, indeed, to software in general – came about purely by chance. As he told me back in 1996, as he reflected on how the Linux kernel had come about and grown:
blogs.techrepublic.com: Recently, I have been evaluating various gateways for Internet facing devices for the small office or home office (SOHO) over the last few weeks. This functionality in this space continues to impress me, and the best part is that a lot of it is available for free.
tectonic.co.za: KDE stalwart and African developer Uwe Thiem passed away on Friday afternoon. Uwe was a long-standing developer of KDE and an ardent advocate of free and open source software.

blogs.techrepublic.com: I’ve been a fan of gOS for a while now. I’ve been running their Rocket release for about a year. It’s based on Ubuntu and has the benefit of pre-installed Enlightenment. It’s solid, runs well on lower-end hardware, and…it’s Enlightenment (what more do you want?)
kdedevelopers.org: Like KDE4, KDevelop has seen much work on essential internal mechanisms (much like the pillars of KDE), the power of which will become evident over the next year or so. Progress has been great recently. In today's blog I'll concentrate on language support.
lkml.org: So it's been almost three months since 2.6.25 (87 days to be exact, I think), making this a longer-than-usual release cycle. Or maybe it just feels that way, and we're always getting close to three months these days. But it's out there now.
headshotgamer.com: These early snapshots are important to the Linux gaming community. The reason for this is simple; Gamers are hardware junkies. Newer kernels support newer hardware and the newer the distro, the newer the packages.
ubuntu.com: The Ubuntu Weekly Newsletter, Issue 99 for the weeks July 6th - July 12th, 2008 is now available. In this issue we cover: special 100th issue of the UWN next week, Intrepid Alpha 2 released, Ubuntu stats, new Kubuntu website, Ubuntu in US retailers, and much, much more!
debaday.debian.net: Email-Reminder is a simple tool to define events for which you want to receive a reminder by email. These reminders (sent out daily by a small cronjob) can be either on the day of the event and/or a few days beforehand.
itwire.com: Virtualisation is a technology that can work wonders: provide a testing environment, enhance your processing power, consolidate your computing resources, decrease running costs, preserve legacy apps and more! Here’s how virtualisation can benefit you and why the Linux route really beats out the competition.
apcmag.com: Penguin-powered mini notebooks are selling like hotcakes. But will they finally bring Linux into the mainstream? Don’t count on it.
lxer.com: This is sort of a first impressions report on both Mandriva Linux 2009.0 Alpha 2 and a bit of a report on what I've discovered about KDE 4 (4.1). I'm currently running Mandriva Linux 2009.0 Live CD on a Virtual Box virtual machine on my laptop.
kmandla.wordpress: Tonight I met a systems engineer for a European car company who spent 20 minutes talking my ear off about the virtues of Linux, and how much it had changed — for the better — since his college days.
makeuseof.com: We here at Make Use Of try to make your switch to Linux as smooth as possible, which includes using simple and common terminology. However there are plenty of terms that are unavoidable or at least impractical to avoid. So here they are.
reddevil62-techhead.blogspot: IT is easy, if you are a Microsoft Windows user, to get tied-in to certain applications. But what about Linux and Free/Open Source users? Your own must-have applications will obviously depend on what you use your computers for. My own everyday needs are quite modest.
