blogs.computerworld: Whatever drugs Steve Ballmer is on they must be very, very good. That's the only explanation I can come up with for Ballmer telling the Australian press that he's "amazing pleased" with Vista sales.
liquidat.wordpress: While today many kernel modules are shipped in the vanilla kernel and some missing ones (like uvc) are added later on by the distributors, some kernel modules are not shipped yet and might never be shipped with the mainline kernel. Now, several years after DKMS was first introduced to the world it finally starts to appear at different places.
itwire.com: Most all modern home computer users are switched on to the fact they have to protect their computer from nasties: anti-virus, anti-spam, firewalls have all entered the common vernacular. If you don’t use 'that' operating system from Redmond though does this still apply? And what packages should you use?
puppylinux.org/blogs: While wandering the Ubuntu site (www.ubuntu.com) to take a look at the new Hardy Heron / 8.04 LTS version, I went all philosophical and tried to think of any lessons that the Puppy Community could learn from that of Ubuntu.
Josh Saddler: I wiped Gentoo off my old Toshiba laptop a couple of nights ago, and have been trying out binary distros with a smaller-is-better philosophy. I need a distro that is lightweight, mostly self-contained, yet also has a decent package repository for the edge cases. So far I've been through Fluxbuntu, TinyMe, and SliTaz.
itreviews.co.uk: The maturity of OpenOffice is fast winning over many of those still deep-rooted in a Microsoft Office way of working, and while this latest release isn't likely to tip too many more over the edge, it's a further move forward in the quest to be accepted as the legitimate alternative that it already is.
In this HowTo I will describe how to prepare a Debian Etch server for OpenVZ. With OpenVZ you can create multiple Virtual Private Servers (VPS) on the same hardware, similar to Xen and the Linux Vserver project.
While we're all waiting for PCLOS 2008 to be released, we were treated to a kissing cousin yesterday with the release of TinyMe 2008.0. It's a small lightweight distro featuring the LXDE desktop with lots of handy apps. I thought I'd take it for a little test run this evening to see what it might be like.

vivapinkfloyd.blogspot: I tested KDE 4.0 in Kubuntu 8.04 Remix edition. I know it's probably not the best distribution to test the relatively new KDE 4.0, but that was what I had available at the moment. It didn't made a good impression to me though. I'm currently using KDE 3.5.9 with Debian Lenny and I'm so happy with it, and some of the reasons which still make me stick to it are:
pcworld.com: As Firefox 3.0 inches ever closer to its final release, early testers seem pleased with the new features, performance enhancements, and improved look and feel of the next-generation browser, but users are grumbling about bugs in the upcoming version of the open source browser.

linux-exploration.blogspot: Mandriva is the result from after Mandrake. It is what PCLinuxOS is based on. The people behind them have experience, and when they made this OS, they were very careful to provide a good OS, with not many rough edges, and a good overall feature stack. 2008, goes by that, and provides a great Linux experience.
fsckin.com: We’ve all seen the email scams, where software pirates offer amazing deals on software through email. I didn’t want any of the software he was offering. He says in his email that if he doesn’t have it, he’ll get it. So I sent our new buddy Michael an email asking if he could provide a legal copy of Ubuntu for me.
janfredrik.wordpress: The interest and use of open source software and methodology has gained an increasing amount of commercial attention, and we are currently witnessing that established proprietary software firms are taking a step further by opening their own software projects in an attempt to create firm-sponsored open source communities.

bbc: Web users are getting more ruthless and selfish when they go online, reveals research. The annual report into web habits by usability guru Jakob Nielsen shows people are becoming much less patient when they go online.
reddevil62-techhead.blogspot: In broad terms, antiX M7.2 is a community-driven project to combine a Mepis 7.2 base (kernel is 2.6.22-1-mepis-smp) with the vast Debian package repositories and the Fluxbox and IceWM window managers. AntiX is designed for older PCs, hence those lightweight window managers.
