sys-con.com: Although organizations are not realizing the full potential benefits of open source due to the way open source projects are currently managed, this does not mean that there are no benefits from developing in open source. Once you get past the “free developer” presumption and carefully look at the larger picture, it becomes clear that open source brings real value.
worthplaying.com: COR Entertainment announced Alien Arena 2008, a complete overhaul and update of the core game. Every player model has been replaced, nearly every weapon model, and nearly one half of the arenas. Sixteen new maps in total. Alien Arena 2008 will be released for Windows, Linux, and Mac.
blog.seattlepi: Microsoft made headlines yesterday for its overtures to the open-source software community, including some that practically cast the move as a surrender by the company. But a reality check seems warranted: What is the company really promising here?
- Detroit funds sue Yahoo over Microsoft rebuff
- Microsoft's big openness pledge
- Is Microsoft All Bark and No Bite Anymore?
- Does Microsoft really want to be open source's friend?
- Microsoft the magnanimous?
bobbocanfly.wordpress: Tonight i was faced with a dillema. Leave a 160gb USB external hard drive lying collecting dust, or risk my entire system by installing a copy of Ubuntu 8.10 Hardy Heron Alpha 4. Obviously my only choice was the latter.
linuxtoday.com: Once in a while, a confluence of random events (or not so random, depending on your belief system) can create the ideal aha! moment. The moment of clarity when all the pieces just fall into place and you realize "that's what's going on!" I believe I have had one of those moments.
opensource.org: On November 2nd, 2006, Microsoft and Novell announced a business agreement that was characterized as worse than useless by Bradly Kuhn, CTO of the Software Freedom Law Center. This week we see another announcement from Microsoft that seems to offer everything we didn't like about the Novell deal to a wider range of developers and nothing that meets the first test of our open source principles.
linux.com: There comes a time, right after you burn your 137th MP3 CD, when you start feeling the need to establish a system for finding all the songs you treasure so much. It's the same with movies, application kits, books, and music -- you need software that lets you index your media quickly and output detailed search results. Here's a selection of Linux applications you can use to ease your work.
Dana Blankenhorn: About a week ago I got an e-mail asking me to comment on rumors that Nvidia might buy AMD. Yesterday, however, came some news relevant to this beat which lets me comment on the whole ball of wax, and state clearly that Mr. Ruiz is not the problem.
lifehacker.com: Like a famed race horse or a classic book, you don't just throw away a laptop because it's banged up a little. Even if it seems outdated and underpowered, most any laptop is still small, quiet, and relatively low on power consumption, making it a seriously valuable spare to keep handy—even without a working screen.
arstechnica.com: A new version of the GStreamer plugin modules was released yesterday after eight months of intensive development. One of the most significant features in this release is support for using native Quicktime and DirectShow codecs on Mac OS X and Windows.
junauza.blogspot: The Open Racing Car Simulator (TORCS) is considered among the best open source games available for Linux. TORCS is based upon the open source, cross-platform libraries OpenGL, Mesa 3D and OpenGL Utility Toolkit, thus it is highly portable and can also run on FreeBSD, Mac OS X and Windows.
raiden.net: I first tried Wolvix as a live CD in its 1.0.5 version back in November 2006 and was immediately blown away by it. Further, it frequently amazes me that so much great software can be wrapped up in such a tight, stable distribution on one 700MB CD.

oreillynet.com/linux/blog: The spread of Threading Building Blocks (TBB) into Linux distributions is gaining momentum: TBB will be packaged into the upcoming Ubuntu Hardy Heron release.
linux.com: Over the last few years I have been experimenting with time-lapse photography. One easy way to compile a time-lapse video is to use dvd-slideshow, a tool for creating video slideshows from digital photos, and more.
theinquirer.net: Microsoft yesterday surprised many by saying it would open the books on its software, revealing and documenting critical APIs and other information. Five more technology U-turns Microsoft took are listed here:
- Why you should care about Microsoft's open-source move
- Microsoft openness initiative proves they still don't get it
- World not open to Microsoft promises
- Korean Professor Wins Patent Lawsuit Against Microsoft
- What Microsoft is really up to
beranger.org: Currently, Zebuntu is nothing else but a rebranded, BeOS-themed XFCE variant of Ubuntu 7.10, with a new control panel (MAGIC). Now what?
techthrob.com: Google's Picasa software is a powerful tool for managing your photo collection. It provides a simple interface for organizing your pictures, as well as some easy-to-use, yet powerful image manipulation tools. However, until recently the Windows version of Picasa has had some features that put it above the Linux version.
