happyassassin.net: Elisa just keeps on rocking more each week. They release an update to the 0.5 series every week with useful bugfixes and small new features, and rarely break anything. This week’s update - 0.5.28 - is particularly dear to my heart, as they implemented a feature I’ve been bugging the poor Fluendo guys about for months now.
makeuseof.com: Hollywood movies often have a tech geek entering commands and doing amazing things. While it may not be that easy to hack into public transport systems or or control the world like Eagle Eye, the command line is certainly a geeks playground.
debiantoday.com: There are many tasks that a system administrator does on a regular basis that can be simplified using cron. Cron allows you to create a schedule to complete perl or shell scripts in the background.

extremetech.com: It's been quite a while since I've played with openSUSE. Back in the day it was pretty much my favorite Linux distribution. Oh sure I flirted with other distros and I enjoyed using them, but openSUSE always had its own special appeal. As a result, I couldn't resist downloading openSUSE 11.1 and giving it a shot.
junauza.com: If you have a small or medium-size business, then you may consider using finance or accounting software to efficiently manage your own venture. To those who are using Linux and are living on a tight budget, you can try some of these.
wgo.wolf911.us: The year 2004, my first jump into the Gentoo world after a slew of other distros. I hated the terminal, I liked my point and click GUI so it was a big change. I glanced over the handbook without really reading it and went upon my venture, I failed miserably.
PCLinuxOS Magazine, January 2009 (Issue 28) is available to download. Some highlights include: Linux Media Player Roundup 5, KDE 4, and PCLOS on HP 2133 mini-note.
odysseus-amazed.livejournal: Although I've never been a Linux Operating System convert, I have tried different versions through out the years and generally kept up with the development of the OS.
celettu.wordpress: I also must say that Plasma has come a long way. It looks good, is fast, and doesn’t crash anymore, at least on my PC. I like that. But...
