blog.wired.com: A day after the Hans Reiser murder trial drifted into the netherworld, the murder case against the Linux programmer careened Thursday into the world of psychiatry.

downloadsquad: Theming one's OS to look like a Mac is all the rage these days, but for the most part such modifications are superficial. However, Global Menu actually changes the user experience quite a bit.

Ross Turk, Community Manager at http://SourceForge.net/, today announced the guidelines for the 2008 Community Choice Awards. Starting this year, the awards are open to any open source project, even those hosted outside of SourceForge.
Carla Schroder: Webcams are everywhere these days: they're standard on a lot of laptops, LCD monitors are starting to incorporate them, and decent standalone USB webcams can be had for less than $40. In this two-part series we'll set up a Webcam on Linux, and then use it to perform a number of amazing and fun tasks.
fanaticattack.com: You’ve been thinking about it for a while. You’ve seen the PDF converter and sighed longingly; you’ve blushed before the skeptical glances of your open-source and anti-Microsoft friends who say “You’re still using Microsoft Office?” I’m here to help.
jeremy.linuxquestions.org: The polls are closed and the results are in. This was the seventh annual LinuxQuestions.org Members Choice Awards and we’ve set a record for participation each and every year. We had some extremely close races this year.

mozillalinks.org: Most likely you have your own definition: a software company, an open source project, the maker of Firefox, a cool thing made by lots of volunteers, a non-profit, etc. For Mitchell Baker explaining what Mozilla is and what’s not to lots of influential people around the world is an important part of her job.
weblog.infoworld: If you're active in the open source world, Ohloh probably knows you. The Bellevue, Wash., software company has a database of some 70,000 developers working on nearly 11,000 of the world's major open source projects.
beranger.org: You may never know with Mandriva, but I feel there is a good chance to have a Mandriva 2008.1 "One" XFCE flavor. There is a Beta that doesn't look that bad!
the451group.com: Here’s an interesting bit of news from the blurred line between open and closed source software. Ubuntu sponsor Canonical has announced that it is reselling IBM’s DB2 Express-C database as both a standalone software package and as a software appliance with VMware.
phoronix: This morning NVIDIA has introduced their first GeForce 9 graphics card, with the introduction of the GeForce 9600GT. While the embargo covering the NVIDIA GeForce 9600GT was just lifted at the top of the hour, no Linux driver supporting this first GeForce 9 part is yet available.
linuxhelp.blogspot: In the previous article, I explained how to install Avant Window Navigator in Ubuntu Linux (Gutsy Gibbon). By default, it doesn't install any applets. But a dock without any applets is as boring as a desktop without a dock right ? So here are a couple of AWN applets which I found really interesting.
zerias.blogspot: The X.org ATi driver has been updated to release 6.8.0 which is worth a note for a couple of reasons. After the release of the X.org-ATi driver on the 18th, AMD followed up with another Open-License release on the 20th.
lazytechguy.com: My friend was looking out for a middle range Laptop and he finally settled for Acer Aspire 4520. Now this is a decent Laptop with a very decent price. Best of all it comes with Linux pre-installed. Now the Limited functionality with Linux directly translates into many devices not working properly.
linux.com: The Viewglob command-line utility lets you see the files available for your shell command completions in a separate window, leaving your regular terminal window uncluttered.

iTWire: Last time, we spoke about the Linux process scheduler and how it runs in the shadows swapping processes in and out of a running state so everyone gets a stab at the CPU. Today we’ll go over how the kernel keeps track of time and just what it means to do something in a jiffy.
redmonk: To be perfectly honest, I can think of several things I’d rather do than deconstruct yet another Linux vs OpenSolaris/Solaris flamewar. That said, this discussion is largely a waste of time for both sides, so unless you’re the kind of person that slows to observe traffic accidents in some detail, this is probably one to skip.
