ceki.blogspot: When I mention to colleagues in the IT industry that compiling packages before installing them on a computer is a good thing, they either give me a blank look or an ever slight smirk. What is the point wasting many hours waiting for some package to compile instead of fetching the binaries from a repository and have it installed in seconds?
linuxjournal.com: The depth of Microsoft loathing among our clan is perhaps only second to our penguin loving. This loathing makes sense, given that Linux and open-source people are so fiercely merit driven, and great products have failed to end Microsoft's hegemony. But times they are a changin', for a post-Gates, post-Microsoft age has already begun.
linux.com: With Ubuntu, Canonical has had notable success in convincing people to switch from other platforms, but potential Ubuntu users are still running into trouble in several areas. Having spent some time on Canonical's forums, I've identified 10 points that seem to be common sticking points for new users.
wolf911.us: As predicted, rc-2 came out for core-beta team and I have assembled the iso files. If there is no problems, the final will finally be released.
Dana Blankenhorn: Open source has definitely reached the third level of fame. You know, level one is “What’s open source?” Level two is “Get me open source!” Level three is put open source on everything.
linux.com: Figures on adoption of the GPL family vary somewhat, depending on whom you talk to. According to Doug Levin, president and CEO of Black Duck Software, a company that tracks open source code, 2,476 projects are now using the third version of the GPL, 358 are using the LGPL, and 72 the AGPL.

arstechnica.com: The developers of the open source KDE desktop environment announced the availability of the second KDE 4.1 beta release this week. This version has many improvements to usability and overall robustness compared to the previous beta. I tested KDE 4.1 beta 2 with a LiveCD build of openSUSE 11.
lizards.opensuse: In order to give an answer about “Why this package will be installed and who needs it?” I have added a new Dialog in the QT single package selector. Select one item (pattern, package) in the single selection frame and the result will be shown with this dialog.
linux.com: If you work some of the time on your laptop and some of the time on your desktop box, making sure that your work is updated on both machines is a must. Many tools can help you accomplish this, from command-line tools such as scp and rsync to generic graphical applications like Konqueror or Krusader, to more specific tools like Unison. Komparator and KDiff3, a couple of KDE applications with interesting features, may offer better ways of syncing your work.
raiden.net: Over the past couple of weeks I've been involved in a college class on how to write a research report. It's certainly not the easiest class, but it's been informative. Being a geek myself, I chose for my research topic, the ever volatile subject of "The best ways to market Linux."
oreillynet.com/onlamp/blog: I read about the U.S. government’s USAsearch.gov site using the Vivisimo engine for search federal, state, and local government sites in the U.S. This is the same engine used by the Clusty search site. The first phrase that came to mind to search for was Open Source.
easylinuxguide.com/blog: In my last blog article I talked about how much progress the major distros have made lately in terms of creating much smoother and more usable interfaces for the general new Linux user. One major downfall remained. This article is about Mandriva.
markshuttleworth.com: A distribution occupies a very specific niche in the free software ecosystem. Among other things, we need to accept some responsibility for ALL the software defects (”bugs”) that users actually experience across the entire stack. Most users don’t install their apps from upstream source tarballs, they install them from the packages provided by their distribution.
fsckin.com: Building a carputer the most difficult, expensive and rewarding do-it-yourself (DIY) projects I have ever completed. On the surface, the idea is simple, just take a computer put it in the car. In reality, it is several times more difficult than installing a car alarm.
reddevil62-techhead.blogspot: HOW many Linux users do you know who, once they have installed a new distribution, are so happy with its default appearance that they leave it alone? Once I have a distribution I am happy with, in terms of its performance and stability, I always spend an hour or two getting it to look exactly how I want.
