jonathancarter.co.za: Ubuntu has been quite popular on DistroWatch for a long time now. Currently it is at the number 1 position for hits per day on the site over the last six months. There’s a nice little Facebook app that builds stats of which distributions and desktop environments people use.
kevincarmony.blogspot: Today, as a Linspire shareholder, I received the below "memorandum" from Linspire. I have confirmed with several other Linspire shareholders that they too received this notice.
thunk.org/tytso: Over the weekend, I converted my laptop to use the ext4 filesystem. So far so good! So far I’ve found one bug as a result of my using ext4 in production.
reddevil62-techhead: REGULAR readers of this blog will know I'm a huge fan of Parsix, the Debian-based Linux distribution created by a small team in Iran. For the first time Parsix Viola officially supports Compiz-Fusion, VirtualBox-OSE and GNU Flash Player
blogs.techrepublic.com: Many people don’t realize the wealth of applications available for Linux — and that includes financial software. Jack Wallen introduces 10 Linux apps that will meet your financial needs, whether you just want a digital replacement for your checkbook.
vivapinkfloyd.blogspot: Review of 11 most popular video players for Linux, like VLC, SMPlayer, Kaffeine, Totem and several more.
linux.com: Big Buck Bunny is the colorful product of the Peach open movie project: an animated short released online and on DVD. But in addition to the 'toon itself, Peach has produced an altogether different yield: improvements to the Blender 3-D modeling application.
linuxjournal.com: The Linux Journal recently published an article I wrote on Jean-Pierre Lemoine's AVSynthesis, a program designed for artists working with the computer as a medium for the synthesis of image and sound. I'm fascinated by that program, so I decided to research the existence of similar software. This article presents the current findings from that research.

cookingwithlinux.com: Over at Practical Tech Steven J. Vaughan-Nichols suggests that it may be time for a fork of KDE, mostly because he doesn't believe that KDE 4.1 is heading in the right direction. All this discussion, and yes, criticism, is also good. Evolution doesn't just move forwards. It moves sideways.
lockergnome.com: Ars Technica has an article expounding upon the changes to the next revision of Ubuntu. The tale begins with news that the upcoming release will include support for the sub-notebooks based upon the Intel Atom processor. Very nice, but what portion of the market will be using these things?
foogazi.com: I’ve been wondering if using Linux actually makes me more productive. I can think of a few reasons why a Linux user may be more productive but I can also counter those reasons with ways running Linux can make you unproductive.
seanrtilley.blogspot: So, I've decided to do something REALLY out of the ordinary for me. My friend Steven said that I don't understand enough about Linux. Fair enough. To completely immerse myself in tech know-how, I am going to use my computer every day...with nothing but a command line.
celettu.wordpress: Every now and then I bump into a nice, little, relatively unknown but impressive application that makes my life a little bit easier. Catfish is one of those.
blogs.zdnet.com: As the Open Source Census grinds on (over 250,000 installations so far) it occurs to me just how useful it can be for an enterprise to participate. You might learn something you can profit from.
blogs.ittoolbox.com: Linux is ready for the desktop. It can handle one hundred percent of all business tasks. If you are willing to break the proprietary nipple sucking that is. Yet enterprise still pulls out the same old excuses for not adopting Linux.
blogs.zdnet.com: OK, so over the past few months I’ve grown from being a Linux skeptic into being quite a Linux fan. I’ve still got lots to learn but it’s great having the ability to roll out a no-cost OS onto systems that don’t need to have Windows on them. That said, there are a few aspects of Linux that do annoy/frustrate/anger me/make me hulk out.
jonobacon.org: Today we announced that we have decided to call it a day with LugRadio. Our last show will be LugRadio Live UK 2008 on the 19th and 20th July 2008 at The Lighthouse in Wolverhampton.
cybernetnews.com: Video tutorials are one of the easiest ways to figure out how to do something and for many people making the switch to Linux is one of the hardest things to do. So, why not make a bunch of video tutorials for Linux to make things a little easier?
