desktoplinux.com: "Windows XP Will Fill Two-Thirds of Asustek Eee PCs." OK, I know almost none of you are journalists, but what's wrong with that headline? That's right. Linux will be running on a third of Asustek's Eee PCs.
phoronix.com: Over the past couple of quarters it's definitely been an unpleasant time for the Linux commercial gaming scene, but this week there is good news coming out of Finland and that is two games -- both relatively new to the marketplace -- being ported to Linux.
theregister.co.uk: Redmonk analyst Michael Coté joined the Open Season crew for Episode 13 of our glorious show. With Coté on board, we managed to discuss about things that might actually matter to open source companies rather than simply prattling on about our hopes, dreams and genius.
linuxjournal.com: Ok, confession time. I love webgen but the Geek Ranch site keeps getting more complicated. We want blogs, .... Or, put another way, the dynamic content keeps growing. I finally gave in and admitted we need Drupal.
linux.com: Her PC has a 1GHz VIA processor and 128 MB of RAM and runs Ubuntu. You can imagine how slowly it boots, even with Linux installed, and GNOME runs so slowly that it's quite irritating. I didn't want to reformat and install a lightweight Linux distribution like Fluxbuntu because the mini PC doesn't have a CD-ROM drive. Instead, I found and installed some lightweight software to improve her computing experience.
beranger.org: Knowing that my Acer TravelMate 5310-300508 and its Intel 82801G (ICH7) sound system with Realtek ALC268 codec chip is not very well supported, so that I recently cursed ALSA while I tried Ekiga and Twinkle with it, I needed to make a quick summary of how manage some Linux distros to get along with that laptop.
ubuntukids.org: By which I mean my first 24 hours or so of screen time. I have to say I’m very impressed. Every edition of Ubuntu I’ve used (started with Breezy) has been excellent but often seemed a bit immature - which is not a criticism and is to be expected from a new product.
jonreagan.wordpress: I just installed a fresh copy of Kubuntu kde4 Hardy Heron on my laptop. Actually, it’s semi-fresh… After using it for the past few hours, several things really struck me:
Dana Blankenhorn: Previous research showed linear and quadratic growth in lines of source code of individual open source projects. Our work shows that open source is expanding into new domains and applications at an exponential rate.
pcworld.idg.com.au: The Philippine government's official weather service, PAGASA, has replaced its SGI supercomputer with a clustered Debian Linux system that can process information vital to protection against typhoons, floods, droughts, tsunamis and other wild weather conditions at a fraction of the cost.
junauza.blogspot: Microsoft Word is the most widely used computer word processing system today. However, due to unfair or high price tag of Microsoft’s Office Suite, free and open-source word processors are rapidly gaining in popularity. To those who are looking for some quality word processors but don't want to spend for even a dime, try some of these:
raiden.net: PARSIX 1.0 is a Persian Linux distribution, created by a team in Iran and built on a Debian base. It comes as a live CD in which the default languages – ironically, I have to say, given the prickly relationship between the leaders of Iran and America – are Persian and American English.
arstechnica.com: The Kysoh Tux Droid is a robot that wirelessly connects to a Linux computer and performs actions in response to preprogrammed events. It can flap its wings, turn around in circles, blink, detect light levels, record audio, and even speak.
computerworlduk.com: Red Hat has rolled out a beta-test of the next version of its flagship OS, Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 5.2, with a new kernel and significant changes aimed at server farms and at workstations.
softpedia.com: Skype 2.0 for Linux was released yesterday, and brings one of the most awaited features by its users: video calls.
posingaspopular.wordpress: I use Linux every single day. I entered work and my fellow co-worker in the tech department was having for lack of a better term “issues” with his computer. He said something to the extent of ‘my hard drive is broken so I cant get that file you need for you. This sounds like a perfect job for a Linux algorithm.
computerworlduk.com: Firefox 3.0 Beta 4 users are reporting that Mozilla's new browser is dramatically faster than its predecessor – as well as faster than the latest versions of Internet Explorer, Opera and Safari.
linux.com: Last month the TrueCrypt Foundation released TrueCrypt 5.0, which finally introduces a Linux GUI for the cross-platform encryption application. TrueCrypt 5.0's numerous other enhancements include a Mac OS X port, XTS operation mode, the ability to encrypt a system partition or drive under Windows, and the addition of the SHA-512 hash algorithm.
arstechnica.com: The Banshee development community has been working for months on a major refresh for the popular music player. The first Banshee 1.0 alpha was released today, providing users with an early look at Banshee's new features and vastly improved user interface.
