Pain and Glory: “GNUstep is a cross-platform, object-oriented framework for desktop application development." Anyone who has used NeXTSTEP, OPENSTEP or Mac OS X knows the inherent power and quality of this API. So one would think that GNUstep would be quite popular.
Luis Villa’s Blog: Having had a good week, I’m playing with toys a little bit today. (Sadly, not enough free time to make it to GNOME Summit.)1 Some notes, forthwith, from Fedora 8 test 3, with a few supplements as well from a month old Ubuntu Tribe CD.2
distrogue.blogspot.com: f you're reading this on Kubuntu, then I honestly feel sorry for you. It's not that I hate KDE (in fact, I love it, even v3.5), it's just how badly misused it is in Kubuntu.
linuxmini: Wifi-radar is a tool intended to configure easily your interface wifi, and will allow you to connect to your wifi network. Wifi-radar is available in the menu Xfce, in the Network submenu.
moving-innovations.com/blog: When the server arrived earlier this week I thought it’d be a matter of simply popping in a Gentoo minimal install CD, running through the installation steps, and be done with it. So I popped in the CD. Rebooted the machine. Nothing happened.
o'reilly onlamp: How many open source relational databases can you name? I can already imagine many of you saying “bulls**t”, what about MySQL and PostgreSQL?” (to name just two), but those are just databases, not relational databases.
thepanoramablog.blogspot.com: Good news: with openSuSE 10.3, most dependent libraries of Hugin 07.beta are in the correct state, so here's a quick roundup how to get and install:
nixcraft: So how do you find out how fast is your hard disk under Linux? Is it running at SATA I (150 MB/s) or SATA II (300 MB/s) speed w/o opening computer case or chassis?
iTWire: A look through most department store catalogues reveals a bevy of alleged “deal” laptops; you know the type – cheap and cheerful, sub-$1,000 – but far from bleeding-edge specs. These may be naff at resource-hungry Windows apps but can be a great Linux machine for no extra cost. But can you check out any hardware gotchas prior to purchase, and be sure the Penguin will run?
kmandla.wordpress.com: Part of the real benefit of Ubuntu and the ‘forums, is that so many people from so many backgrounds and cultures are drawn together by a common interest. bapoumba is a moderator who has a distinctly different perspective on many of the issues that surround Linux, Ubuntu and the community that has grown up with it.
UNetbootin is a tool that allows you to install various Linux distributions (Ubuntu, Fedora, Mandriva, OpenSuSE, Debian, ArchLinux) from a Windows or a Linux desktop over the internet (i.e., you do not need to burn the Ubuntu, Fedora, ... CDs).
adamw’s blog: We got 2008 (mostly) finalized today. Well, tomorrow morning, Paris time. I’m really looking forward to the next few weeks - 2008 is shaping up to be a really killer release.
kernelTRAP: When a Linux user reported a repeatedly high load average on an idle server, tracking the problem to a specific patch labeled, "user of the jiffies rounding code", Andrew Morton replied, "this is unexpected. High load average is due to either a task chewing a lot of CPU time or a task stuck in uninterruptible sleep."

DPotD: hpodder is a command-line podcast client that just works. The command arguments are simple to master and allow for flexibility in downloading.
People Behind KDE releases the fourth and final interview in its series of interviews with students who are working on KDE as part of the Google Summer of Code 2007 - meet Marijn Kruisselbrink, Alexandr Goncearenco, Emanuele Tamponi and Vladimir Kuznetsov!
tips.vlaurie.com: A few months ago I installed Ubuntu Linux on an old PC using the free standard distribution CD. I am very impressed with it and thought I would tell you the things about it that I like.

blogs.cnet.com: One of the advantages of Apple Macintosh computers is that simply by not being Windows, they are immune to the plague of malware (malicious software) that constantly strikes at Windows based machines. Linux has this advantage too, plus it's cheaper. A computer running Linux may be ugly compared to a Mac, but it can cost in the neighborhood of 20% as much (more on this later).
krizka.net: Last week I posted a harsh review about OpenSuse 10.3, but I also pointed out that there were some good things about it. Here is a quick summary of what I enjoyed during my excursion with this GNU/Linux distribution.
