linuxtnt.wordpress: One annoying misfeature of Gnome is the way that they have tried to foul up X Windows cut and paste. For some reason Gnome added another cut and paste feature which copies the clunky one on Microsoft Windows.
my.opera.com blog: This build implements a much requested option for all you users switching from other browsers. You can now get that Safari, Firefox, IE or <insert alternative browser of choice here> tab handling in Opera, too.

linuxhow2.com: What is QEMU? It's a free software "processor emulator", which means it's capable of running applications written for other systems natively on your current operating system. The QEMU virtual CPU core library is released underneath the GNU LGPL. QEMU is capable of running a guest operating system on top of your current operating system, in the same manner as applications such as VirtualBox OSE and Vmware Workstation.
pcmag.com: The Zonbu PC, a $99 miniature desktop that debuted earlier this year, generated some excitement among those with shallow pockets—at least until they saw the fine print.

fosswire.com: Nowadays, people have a lot of media. Music, videos and photos. One application for Linux for managing a library of photos is F-Spot. I thought I would take it for a spin, under Fedora 8 and GNOME.
Dana Blankenhorn: It’s the nature of the system, admits Andy Updegrove, legal advisor to the Linux Foundation. The format of Microsoft Office will likely become an official International Standards Organization standard at the end of this month.

mozillalinks.org: Later today, Mozilla will release Firefox 3 Beta 3, the eleventh milestone in the longest development time for a Firefox revision since the initial Firefox 1.0 on 2004. The eight alphas and trio of betas (so far), if anything, are a reflection of the long list of enhancements it (Firefox) and the underlying Gecko rendering engine, are bringing along.
pclinuxos2007.blogspot: I was looking for PCLinuxOS flavours with latest xorg and kernel. PCLinuxOS official version is yet to be released. So I thought why not try its gnome remaster. It's the same pclinuxos with gnome desktop. And here is the result of what I got.
blogs.ifcode.com: Well, I thought I’d create my own list of programs I FEEL I couldn’t live without, and don’t come installed as default. Here goes:

Per reader requests, we have carried out additional benchmarks of the Phenom 9500 to compare its 32-bit and 64-bit Linux performance.
