apaku: This is just my personal impressions from the 10/15 minutes I played with the current KDE4 desktop yesterday. I’m completely aware that there’s still 2 months of work happening and that KDE 4.0 is not primarily targeted at the broad user base that KDE is. Buut...
iTWire: For a computer, software content is king. Programmable computers began the home computer revolution over 20 years ago. The modern revolution is Open Source software, giving immeasurable utility with no cost or risk. Sadly a lot goes under the radar but here are five sleeper apps really worth checking out.
mitchelaneous.com: No, that’s not an offer to dance but one of the best desktop OS (operating systems) out there today that runs on Linux instead of Windows. Interested?
c|net blogs: Hearing OLPC representative Walter Bender repeat the claim of "10 or 12 hours" of battery life "with heavy use" reminded me of an open question from the last few times I blogged about the OLPC project. What is the battery life of this machine, really?

linux.com: Perhaps Creative Commons' LiveContent 1.0 CD would work better if more clearly defined. LiveContent is a sampler of free content and free software, but this purpose seems lost in a cloud of rhetoric, even to project members. The CD suffers from lackluster presentation, a mediocre assortment of samplers, and a lack of explanation.
François Bancilhon: The Mandriva weather has been a little rough over the past quarters, which might have added to the general mood. So it will soon be time to cheer you up with some good news. We have been kind of quiet recently, which does not mean we have not been active.
OSWeekly: I have been a fan of PC-BSD for sometime now; however, it was after discovering this page that had me disturbed. Using PC-BSD's awesome packaging methods, the webmaster of this site has apparently packaged some applications that might cause some licensing concerns.
In this week's KDE Commit-Digest: "Pencils down" marks the end of the Summer of Code for 2007. Python highlighting support, with work on a new, handwritten lexer in KDevelop. A data engine and associated Plasma applet for KGet. Start of the Plasma-based Wikipedia and Service Info applets for Amarok 2.
the inquirer: We already reported how Skype was taking a deep interest in the workings of the BIOs of Windows users, now it seems that the outfit is snooping on Linux users too.
thepemberton.com: If you’ve switched to Ubuntu (as I have) or any other Linux distribution, you may consider the following free (and in most cases open-source) games, as they’ve been favorites of mine for some time now.
ossblog.it: Ubuntu Mobile is one of the most promising flavour for Canonical distro. So we intervieweved Matt Zimmerman, Ubuntu’s CTO and chairman of the Ubuntu Technical Board, to better know which are the main features of this Ubuntu derivative and what we have to expect.
phoronix: We don't review many disk controllers or hard drives at Phoronix but we decided to take a quick look at the Promise Technology SATA300 TX4 PCI controller card. In this review of the Promise SATA300 TX4 we tested it with Ubuntu 7.04 Feisty Fawn using an nForce 430 chipset.
All about Linux: Ubuntu is on a roll to create the best Linux distribution targeted at the lay person ever. And a number of user friendly features are expected to be included in the yet to be released Gutsy Gibbon.
blogbeebe: In the last posting I made a few snide comments about Vista's documented network (un)performance while Vista was playing back something as simple as an MP3. I found a moment this evening to set up an extremely simple experiment where I streamed a movie and played an MP3 at the same time on europa.
ITtoolbox Blogs: Over the weekend I got into a mood to try out another window manager besides my beloved KDE. Warning! There may be some prejudice here I thought that if I could find a good WM to run on my aging flaky computer I might be able to squeak by until I get a new motherboard.
techgage: Although I don't like to admit it, I have screwed up many times since I first began using computers. But, no longer. I made it a goal to keep perfect backups of my data so that I don't suffer such a fate again. Today's article will be focusing on backing up your files in Linux.
/home/liquidat: Current KDE svn already comes along with the first bits of the future task and system bar. While the current version is not functional yet it shows that we can soon expect news about that topic.
how-to geek: The calculator options on Linux just blows the Windows calculator away. Imagine a calculator where you can solve extremely complicated expressions, or just convert between different measurements, and you've got Qalculate.
tom-buntu: An excellent feature of Beryl was the tray icon that allowed users to easily switch window managers and decorators. A similar icon for Compiz Fusion is now available.
