polishlinux.org: One could ask, ‘What am I supposed to do when I want to find a file, if I am using XFCE, and Thunar is my conscious choice as the file manager?’. It seems to be obvious to click with the right-mouse-button on the folder in which something to be found is expected to exist and to choose the option ‘search’ from the context menu. Thunar bets, however, on the user’s mental powers and creativeness.
computerworld.com: When they're released in final form on April 24, the new server and desktop variants of Ubuntu Linux Version 8.04 will include features aimed at making the open-source operating system easier to deploy and use.

linux.com: While most basic hardware support for GNU/Linux is improving constantly, wireless support remains dismal. Few manufacturers make an effort to support the operating system, or to publicize what support they have. Moreover, the components of wireless devices change so fast that one version of a device may offer support while a second version doesn't.

kde.org: The KDE Community today announced the immediate availability of KDE 4.0.3, the third bugfix and maintenance release for the latest generation of KDE 4.0. KDE 4.0.3 comes with an impressive amount of bugfixes and improvements. Corrections have been made in such a way that results in only a minimal risk of regressions.
ostatic.com: AbiWord, my long-time favorite open source word processor, is out with a new version 2.6, including many useful new features. If you haven't used this application before, give it a try, and if you already do, the upgrade is worthwhile.
techiemoe.com: DreamLinux impressed me in their last release with a surprisingly pleasant graphical interface which, sadly, attempted to conceal a very poor Linux distribution underneath. When I saw they had made a new release, I was surprised they had survived. My morbid curiosity dictated that I must try it out.

raiden.net: About a year ago I looked into AWS (amazon Web Services) and EC2 (Elastic Computing Cloud), at the time I was not overly impressed simply because of the complexity of the setup that the user was expected to endure just to get it running. It wasn't until recently that I needed to re evaluate the service again for a project when I came across this beautiful utility. With this extension I hereby give EC2 to the rest of us.
phoronix.com: Back in early February we announced that we were in the process of formalizing and releasing our internal test tools as a platform for facilitating easy to use, accurate, and reproducible Linux benchmarks based upon the testing work that we have been doing at Phoronix for the past four years.

reddevil62-techhead.blogspot: 25MB... surely this is a mistake? A Linux distribution which includes Firefox, an audio player, a CD ripper/encoder, email, FTP client and lots more... with a 25MB ISO footprint? Someone’s having a laugh, aren’t they? Er, actually, no.
