news.oreilly.com: Last month I wrote in my Entropy (personal) blog about the failures of two of my computer systems. I ended up wiping the hard drive. I chose to install two Linux distributions in a dual boot configuration and decided to take a good long look at the oldest surviving Linux distribution and one of the first ones I worked with: Slackware. A new release, 12.1, came out early in May so this seemed like the perfect time to take a look at the venerable distro.
techiemoe.com: Absolute Linux, according to its website, is an attempt to take Slackware and make it more convenient with a few well-placed scripts. This sort of thing is right up my alley, as my biggest complaint with Slackware has always been the manual nature of it.
linux-wizard.net: Ok, here are some quick news from Cooker :
The Ubuntu Weekly Newsletter, Issue 94 for the weeks June 1st - June 7th, 2008 is now available.

tsunam.org: I’ll give a prime example. Wanted to watch a netflix movie tonight, so of course its a windows IE only application. I boot into windows, and its the second time so I decide to do some windows updates as I’m sure there’s updates that need to be applied to make use of the movie player. I do 11 patches.
debaday.debian.net: The object of the game is much the same as with tetris, only the frame and the falling objects are hexagons. You have to slot the coloured pieces together making rows, which disappear once they are complete, the game ends if the stack of pieces reaches the celling.
thevarguy.com: In our “winner take all” society, The VAR Guy is starting to wonder: Can open source companies like Concursive, Compiere and EnterpriseDB ever escape from the shadows of their larger and more successful rivals (SugarCRM and MySQL)? Before you answer, consider these lessons.
phoronix.com: Last week we released Phoronix Test Suite 1.0 and one of the article requests we received as a result was to do a side-by-side comparison between the popular desktop Linux distributions. Ask and you shall receive. Today we have up 28 test results from Ubuntu 8.04, Fedora 9, and Mandriva 2008.1.
linux.com: We've written about games for Linux many times over the years. Now we want to do something different. We hope to sponsor a Linux game tournament, but we need your input before we start nailing down the details.
isolani.co.uk/blog: I've been using Ubuntu Hardy Heron 8.04 as the operating system on my main home laptop for over a month now. Windows XP having decided that it didn't want to play nicely anymore. I had a few little issues at the start, but I'm starting to make progress.
freesoftwaremagazine.com: It’s June 2008, and it’s not a good time to be a Microsoft shareholder or employee. The computing industry is changing very, very quickly, creating new opportunities and killing once-prosperous markets. In this short article, I will outline these changes in relation to free software and Microsoft. If you can think of more changes, or if you don’t agree with some of my forecasts, please let me know!
daniweb.com/blogs: Welcome to another edition of Crystal Ball Sunday! This week my predictions center around system builders and integrators and their use of Linux to lower costs, standardize hardware offerings, and provide a new systems to buyers that are ready to go to work.
vivapinkfloyd.blogspot: I used this player for about three years and I love it more and more, with each new release. Statistics show around 60% of the Linux users prefer Amarok over any other audio player. 60%! That's huge. This article lists 7 reasons for which I think this is the most loved audio player.

wamukota.blogspot: I told you already of the French Remaster I made for my 82-year old neighbor - I knew it was only a matter time before his Win2K would run into trouble. Two days ago, he informed me that he couldn't Skype anymore. The audio was gone. I went over, with the PCLOS French Remaster under my arm.
damienkane.blogspot: I am writing this article after finally having some time to wipe out the dual booting Vista-Ubuntu 7.10 and install a dual boot Vista-Ubuntu 8.04 with long-term support (LTS) and thought I would give you a perspective.
anujpathania.blogspot: Today I installed a brand new sparkling Xubuntu 8.04 Hardy Heron, on my damn old crappy notebook. Additionally, not in a dual boot mode, but on the entire disk, getting rid of the Windows XP OEM pre-installed permanently for good. I can proudly say that Xubuntu 8.04 Hardy Heron has finally landed in my life.
This tutorial shows how you can set up an Ubuntu Studio 8.04 desktop that is a full-fledged replacement for a Windows desktop, i.e. that has all the software that people need to do the things they do on their Windows desktops.

puppylinux.org/community/blogs: I came to Puppy out of necessity. I was supervising a project that aimed to recycle old "useless" PC's for charity. The son of a friend suggested I try Ubuntu. It was difficult to load and simply wouldn't work. We tried Mandrake/Mandriva, DSL, Mepis, XandrosCE, Slax, PCLinuxOS Mini-Me etc, etc. Then I found Puppy 2.00! Wow!
