Raiden's Realm: This tutorial will teach you how to install and use NTFS-3G on your PC. Make Sure To Read All Of This Post Before Doing Anything, If You Don't Understand It ALL, Do Not Continue
Groklaw: Want to laugh? Microsoft Says It Is Not Bound by GPLv3" -- they think they can so declare, like an emperor, and it becomes fiat. It's not so easy. I gather Microsoft's lawyers have begun to discern the GPL pickle they are in.
DesktopLinux: The KDE development team, gathered at the aKademy event in Glasgow, Scotland on July 4 announced the immediate availability of the second alpha release of the K Desktop Environment v. 4.0. The eight-day-long aKademy continues through July 7 at the University of Strathclyde.
MaximumPC: Thanks to virtualization environments like Microsoft Virtual PC 2007 and bootable LiveDistro (Live CD) Linux distros, it's easier than ever to test-drive another operating system without blowing away your current favorite. You'd probably appreciate an easy way to learn its commands.
arstechnica: The success or failure of the One Laptop Per Child Project hinges critically on the cost of the XO laptop, which governments are expected to purchase on behalf of their citizens in developing countries. While we know that the XO will be debuting at $175, there has been renewed speculation of where the laptop project might land if sales are successful.
Linux-Watch: When you're talking Linux development tools, chances are you're talking about decades-old programming editors like vi and EMACS. These are fine for an older generation of programmers, but today's developers, weaned on Microsoft Visual Studio want integrated development environments.
Jem Report: Today I tried to help a Mac user save some pictures to a DVD. There were more than 1GB of photos, so it made more sense to use a DVD than two CDs. Unfortunately, Mac OS X thinks that you need to make movies when you insert a blank DVD disc -- it has no idea that you want to save data to it. What you, the user, want to do does not matter. All that matters is that you do what Apple says a computer should do. This is "the Apple way," and some people find it enjoyable.
the register: Should you believe Red Hat's claims that its new Exchange marketplace for "open source business applications" contains nothing but open source business applications? We say "no" - since not even Red Hat appears to have a good answer for this question.
linux devcenter: Since the misty days of yore, the first step in learning a new programming language has been writing a program that prints "Hello, world!" In this article, we will use the same approach to learn how to write simple Linux kernel modules and device drivers. We will learn how to print "Hello, world!" from a kernel module three different ways.
hexydes.com: After using Ubuntu Linux for the past six months or so, I finally came across probably the last piece of software that I thought was "missing but really should be there".
Matt Asay: The sad thing is how foolishly consistent Microsoft is on this patent thing. And confused as to what open source means. Here are just three points that Microsoft is making clear, which are completely wrong:
techzone: On 19th April 2007, Kubuntu became the feistiest release of Ubuntu family. Since then my Kubuntu edgy installation was informing me about a new version of Kubuntu. Finally I decided to try it and ordered a i386 CD through Kubuntu Shipit.
Linux Electrons: Novell has added new enhancements to SUSE® Linux Enterprise Real Time and has unveiled new partnerships that expand the ecosystem around Novell's low latency Linux solution.
linux.com: OpenOffice.org suffers from a wildly inconsistent user interface (UI) that combines unique elements with borrowings from Microsoft Office. Now, in the upcoming version 2.3, it is finally having some of the cosmetic procedures it so badly needs -- at least in the charts subsystem.
eWeek: The Free Software Foundation—which deserves much of the credit for delivering these liberties—may find itself in the odd position of being likewise jettisoned by a large and important part of its user base for the FSF's refusal to respect the needs and desires of its own stakeholders.
Linux Planet: As open source makes greater inroads within IT organizations, it's time for companies to get serious about creating policies and governance models around its use.
kernelTRAP: Alan Cox posted an updated LibATA PATA (IDE) status report on the lkml. Improved from a previous status report [story] he noted, "current kernels now support HPA (Host Protected Area) but default to honouring it. Probably a wrong default for PATA but we need to decide the right way to expose it nicely."
itmanagement: By his own description, Dirk Riehle is a major fan of open source software. Riehle, leader of the open source research group at SAP Labs in Palo Alto, California, spends countless hours theorizing about the economics of this emerging software trend.
linuxdistrorevs: Finally PCLOS has taken lead from Ubuntu on the last 3 months based rankings on distrowatch.com. The H.P.D. today showed 2669 for PCLOS against 2668 for Ubuntu.
