linuxindex.com: Ubuntu and Debian installers use preseed for basically pre-answering installation questions for automated installation. In the meantime, I have a public generic kickstart script you can use to simply preview what can be done. To use this do the following:
personalbee.com: Open-source misses the point of defending users freedom and assimilating open-source with Free Software only plays against the original Free Software movement ideals and goals. The necessities of commercial business have somehow eroded the original Free Software ideals and the operational advantages have rapidly gained key attention over the core "ethical" issues on which free software was born.
cxle.blogspot: As soon as things slowed down a little bit I started booting to Ubuntu more and more often. The install wasn't completely painless as the widescreen resolutions didn't work right away which was solved by installing ATI's closed fglrx driver.
linux-tip.net: KDE 4 is the next major release of the K Desktop Environment software. It contains a new multimedia API, called Phonon, a device integration framework called Solid and a new style guide and default icon set called Oxygen. Let me say this first: KDE 4 is still not ready but it is nice to see the major improvements in usability, performance and stability. KDE 4 (preview) is already included in the latest Mandriva release. This article describes the installation on a Mandriva 2008 desktop
iTWire: Linux users can boast long times between reboots, but even so, the startup screens will grace your display at some time. Here’s just what your computer is doing during this process, what the messages mean, and how you can take control.
Linux By Example: After experiencing Linux for two years, I have compiled a list of applications that I use it daily. I would like to share my point of views on those applications and its alternatives. I hope that will served as a reference for those who have dilemma selecting them.
smokinglinux: This post describes a comprensive list of why a Device Developer prefer Debian Linux distro to make their softwares.
linux-gamers.net: While the UT3 Demo for Windows is available sine a few days, the linux client is not yet ready. Nevertheless a beta version of the linux server is now available as icculus (Ryan C. Gordon) states in his blog.
ubuntu.com: Yesterday we took a look at Desktop Effects with Compiz. Today we turn to all the improvements for Firefox including the a better way to install plugins and the arrival of Gnash, a Free flash player.
tectonic: Here at Tectonic we spend way too much time online and a great deal of that time is spent doing research. QuickNote is one of the few Firefox extensions that make it possible for us to escape the Internet occasionally have lives in 'meat space'.

Mandrake used to have a unique identity. Initial versions of Mandriva continued with that identity. But the latest version seems to be shedding that identity, and becoming a shadow of other distributions. If you want to lead, don't follow someone else.
The Oregonian: As director of the California-based Linux Foundation, Jim Zemlin circles the globe proclaiming the virtues of open source software -- computer programs that are written collaboratively by developers all over the world, and are frequently given away free.
DPotD: Aren’t you tired of those audio players with billions of useless features that clutter up their graphical interface? I am. Decibel Audio Player is a simple and nice audio player for the GNOME desktop. Decibel Audio Player follows as closely as possible the GNOME Human Interface Guidelines.
kernelTRAP: This NTFS update fixes the deadlock at mount time reported by several people over the years but it was only recently that someone who reported it actually replied to my response and helped me track it down (I have never been able to reproduce the deadlock).
faler.wordpress: As for my opinion of Ubuntu? Pretty much a pile of dog shit. It tries hard to be “user friendly”, but still doesn’t go far enough like Windows, and you still end up having to edit obscure files like in traditional linux distros, only difference is the “user friendly” helper applications may overwrite your changes.
wadejolson.wordpress: In my ongoing series of asking people to reflect on “what does KDE mean to you?”… taking the standard question of “What does KDE stand for?”asked by people curious about the acronym and twisting it around to make it hopefully a more interesting answer and a bit more introspective.
ciganthought.blogspot: We've all read these articles, and most of us have written angry responses. Listing flaws that either we all know about, or flaws we have no control over. These articles get it wrong because Linux is indeed ready for OUR desktops, and obviously ready for the desktops of certain professional developers, and public library and education stations. Well you know why it's ready for those desktops?
blog.blanco.net.ve: Yes, the next Oct. 18, Venezuelan institutions should report their progress in the process of migration to Linux. However, at this time there are many who have not done anything and others who rush passage.
- Fugubuntu = Linux for Poisonous (Yet Tasty) Fish
- Stewbuntu = Edible Linux Compiled with Gigantic Meat Chunks
nixternal: Well, I just wanted to write up a quick post here and let you know that it isn’t all that hard. If you just started using Ubuntu, or Linux in general, then yes, it might be a tad bit hard at first. If you can compile and install a tarball, then you are well on your way.
