headshotgamer.com: Based on Ubuntu 8.10, you might pass Linux Mint off as being yet another Ubuntu spin-off, though Mint has been around now for while (first release was on the 27th of August, 2006) and it's still a popular distribution, sitting in the number 3 spot on the Distrowatch page hit ranks.
sharplinux.blogspot: I wanted to report on my experiences with KDE 4.1 and Kubuntu 8.10. I succumbed to the temptation to upgrade from Kubuntu 8.04 (which uses the KDE 3.5.9 version) to Kubuntu 8.10 and KDE 4.1.
linuxloop.com: One of the things that I love about being a Linux user is that there are tons of incredibly useful little tools. These are three of the “killer apps” I use.

ubuntu.imoka.net: When they hear about Linux, most of the people are running away because they heard that horror story which says that installing software in Linux is a nightmare. This is not true!
blogs.gentoo: I've just discovered two very interesting minimal word processors. They're designed by writers, for writers.
linuxtidbits.wordpress: Lately I bought an old pc to use as a server and needed a network card for it. I didn’t think it be such a hassle but because of multiple PCI specs finding a card wasn’t easy. Theres been alot of confusion about pci cards and what card to get for your computer.
macgruber.org: Being an avid Linux user I hear lots of people complain that there are no good games for our operating system, so I have put together a top 10 list of the best FPS games in the spirit of proving them wrong.
linux-foundation.org/weblogs: Contests, at their best, can highlight creative thinking and originality. In the Linux community, there seems to be an serious overabundance of both. Four different contests -
itwire.com: One of the happenings at the 10th Australian national Linux conference that attracted the most attention was the shaving of Bdale Garbee's beard by Linus Torvalds. One clever game developer has come up with a game where you can shave Bdale's beard.
reddevil62-techhead.blogspot: IS it OK to be superficial sometimes? The reason I ask is that I was drawn to Granular 1.0, a Linux distribution based on PCLinuxOS.
phoronix.com: Mesa 7.3 was only released a few days back and then the branch for the stabilized Mesa 7.4 created, but new work for Mesa 7.5 has already hit Mesa's Git master branch.
kdedevelopers.org: Using KWin without the KDE desktop is perfectly possible. KWin is actually a KDE application like any other (well, more or less) and so just like other KDE applications it can run in GNOME, Xfce or even standalone, as long as the KDE libraries are available.
blogs.computerworld.com: In a recent story, I wrote about the best three ways to pick up desktop Linux. Many users need more than just a running Linux distribution to get up to speed. What these users need is a good introduction to Linux.
Aaron Aseigo: So apparently Linus is using GNOME right now. On Slashdot, the entire six page interview was boiled down to "Linus Switches From KDE To GNOME". Let me address the "Linus issue."
newlinuxuser.com: If you’re looking around for a good distro to use for your computer, it will probably take you several installs and months of usage (maybe even years!) to decide if you’d stick with what you have or switch to another.
blogs.zdnet.com: The bonds of the FOSS community go far beyond software. Case in point, Arjen Lentz is stepping outside the bounds of the comfortable realm of software and launching bluehackers.org.
toolbox.com/blogs: All the Linux bashers use this as an excuse/reason why Linux is not suitable as a desktop operating system. You should never have to use the command line they say. I personally don't think the command line is bad at all.
So here we are, entering another year — and no doubt at some point during this year, more than one person will declare it the “year of the Linux desktop”. Of course it won’t happen and those who consider themselves free software opponents will soon let us know.
linux-hardcore.com: I am going to review one of those distributions that have as a mission to be minimalist and without frills, but just trying to be effective. It's called CrunchBang and I was very surprised, we see why.
