Xfld; ever hear of it? Neither did we until hearing of its third (0.3) release. Xfld is a Xubuntu-based LiveCD that ships with the latest development build of the Xfce desktop environment. Xfld v0.3 includes Xfce 184.108.40.206 and is based on Ubuntu Edgy Eft 6.10. With that said we decided to take a look at this LiveCD release. Those Great Looking Screenshots.

The sysreq key is a "magical" key combination to which your Linux kernel will respond, regardless of whatever it is doing. On x86 you press the key combo 'ALT-SysRq-'
Previously I looked at mounting your NTFS drive on your Ubuntu box using raw Fuse to do it. Now we’re going to look at what may be a better way to do it. It’s certainly easier and from reports, NTFS-3G is a bit more stable as well. This Howto is written specifically for and from Ubuntu 6.10 - Edgy Eft but should work on any Debian based distro.
If you're a Linux enthusiast you probably noticed what a great month we've had. Slackware 11.0 was released on the 3rd. Mandriva 2007 was released the same day and showed us how integrated XGL, Compiz and AIGLX could be. Fedora Core 6 was released on the 24th and brought us an amazing Gnome 2.16 desktop with fabulous artwork. Ubuntu 6.10 came on the 26th and we couldn't wait to review it.
With Krita's recent 1.6 release enhancing its usability for professional artwork, the Krita team is looking into creating a gallery where Krita users can contribute their art made with it.
Nvu has been one of my favorite open source web editors since its 1.0 release in 2005. However its been more than a year since no new version has been released, so there had been speculation that the project had been canceled by Daniel Glazman. Last Monday I caught up with him in an IRC session, and I want to share some stuff that he discussed.
For the past couple of weeks there has been a poll active on the front-page of this site asking users what they feel their best option is with Vista poking it's glossy head over the horizon.

As the platform architect for the city of Chicago, Amy Niersbach had a decision to make. The city’s IT infrastructure needed some refreshing. Chicago wanted to rid itself of its vintage mainframes, and its aging Sun Solaris servers were costly to maintain. The Windy City needed a major migration. But to what?
openSUSE 10.2 beta 1 has recently been released and one of the highlights of this release is Kickoff – the revolutionary and redesigned KDE menu for openSUSE 10.2.
Some Linux distributions - specifically Ubuntu, Trustix, and Suse - stand accused of sending potential email spam. This is because once signed up to their email lists, it is next to impossible for users to unsubscribe.
So I’ve been taking an informal poll of the sysadmins I know to find out how people are managing the synchronization of files across a server farm. Looks like there are three popular ways of handling this, which I’ll list in no particular order:

With the release of Krita 1.6, it seems like a good time to compare the two big raster image editors for Linux. Coming as they do from the divergent GTK+ and KDE programming camps, it can be hard to assess the differences between the GIMP and Krita without being swayed by politics and emotion.
