informativepost.com: In the beginning was... hacker culture and free Internet software. They existed as outsiders. They were really known by few. But some knew of them and an idea started to grow... it was first only in one person's mind, then two, then it spread to the hacker culture and further into the business world.
cool-stuff-or-not.blogspot: Mandriva launched the new 2008 Spring version (or 2008.1) around April 9th 2008 and just 2 weeks later around April 24th Ubuntu 8.04 LTS was out clogging the internet pipes in a download frenzy Needless to say - I have tested both final versions on a number of computers.
ereslibre.es: We, the KDE team, have done a huge effort of making KDE 4.1 series a really usable desktop, and I really think we are going in a good path. KDE is stabilizing in general terms, and kdelibs goodies are starting to be used widely by almost all applications.
macapper.com: Officially released in November 2004, Firefox has grown to become the second biggest browser, with a market share of nearly 18%, all platforms combined (Internet Explorer has 75%, to web developers’ great regret). Today, it seems that version 3 of Firefox is just around the corner.
earthweb.com: 2008 is shaping up to be the year that GNU/Linux hit the Windows desktop. Already the year has seen the first working version of the KDE Windows project, Wubi, which installs Ubuntu to an existing Windows filesystem, and LiveUSB Creator, a wizard for installing the Fedora distribution to a flashdrive from within Windows.
saleem-khan.blogspot: Litrix 8.5 - International edition was released on Tuesday, 20 May 2008 and is available for download as a single Live DVD of 1.2 GB from the Litrix Linux Home Page. I never had a chance to try the previous versions partly because the English language support was not available by default and partly because it is based on the "scary" Gentoo Linux which looks threatening to home users because of its manual configuration.
The long awaited Myah OS 3.0 is here. 3.0 has been in development since 2006 right after the release of version 2.3. Being completely development from the source up has been quite an undertaking. The initial release is the flagship of the Myah OS range dubbed Mouse Pro. This name is due to the fact that it's built around the XFCE 4.4 desktop, and comes with a complete development environment.
Ladies and gentlemen, let me introduce you the brand new shiny Plasma theme that will be used for KDE 4.1. Here you can see the new applet and krunner backgrounds, the new panel, our brand-new carbon fiber clock and some items that once upon a time weren't themed at all, like the pager and the taskbar.
reuters.com: Smaller, low-cost PCs are likely to be at the top of the shopping list for technology buyers gathering in Taipei this week for the world's second largest computer fair, as an economic slowdown in the United States forces consumers to cut back on spending.

Areca is a personal file backup software developed in Java. It allows you to select files or directories to back up, filter, encrypt and compress their content, and store them on your backup location. Areca supports incremental backups and generates backup reports, which can be stored on your disk or sent by email. This guide explains how to install and use it on a Fedora 9 desktop (GNOME).
linuxoutlaws.com: In this special episode, we talk to Bradley M. Kuhn of the FSLC & FSC about software freedom, litigation against open source developers, the future and thread of web services that aren’t open, the AGPL and poker.
compiz-fusion.org/~cyberorg: Our friends Dennis Kasprzyk and Guillaume Seguin announced the release of Compiz and Compiz Fusion 0.7.6 respectively. As is the tradition we always make a release with a lot of new features and of course eye-candy to go with it.
commandline.org.uk: In the last post I went through the most popular Firefox extensions and talked about whether they were good ideas or not. However, it seems that not a lot of people think about another side to this, i.e. what are your Firefox extensions licenced under?
Also: Firefox 3 RC1 forces you agree to EULA before usage
And: Welcome humans - We have come to visit you in peace and with goodwill!
vivapinkfloyd.blogspot: Following audio players reviews like this or this, today I decided to review Rhythmbox 0.11.5, the GNOME audio player. At first glance, Rhythmbox made me a good impression: the layout is simple and clean, similar in many ways to many other players for GNOME, like Banshee, Listen or Exaile.
phoronix.com: Adobe has been using the GPU to accelerate the Flash Player when displaying full-screen content since their December '07 Flash Player update, but with the Flash Player 10 Beta, new GPU acceleration modes are supported -- even on Linux.
archisgore.blogspot: I've been using Ubuntu for the last couple of months, it still doesn't match the speed-of-use I get from my XP. Speed-of-use isn't always about raw speed of the software. Many times, there are simple UX pieces missing in the media players or GUI config tools which make you go to the command-line occasionally.
blogs.zdnet.com: It’s late, and in terms of the process it’s hopeless, but the appeals of the ISO vote making Office Open XML (OOXML) an official standard could still have an impact
itwire.com: Whether it was to your taste or not, there’s no denying the ASUS Eee Linux subnotebook was a massive sales success. Demand far exceeded initial production so it’s not surprising competitor models are on their way. And here’s why the hardware manufacturers are going to bring Linux to the masses far in advance of any amount of Ubuntu fanboyism.
