kmandla.wordpress: It will sound snide, but I realize that the reason it was so funny to me is that people still think Xubuntu is intended for older hardware. The fact that it’s even discussed should be a clue to the contrary.
blogs.pcworld: I've received word from the OLPC folks that shipment of the XO
$100 $200 laptop I'm entitled because I paid for one for a child in a developing nation has been delayed.
apparentlymart.livejournal: I've just recieved my Dell Inspiron 6400 with Ubuntu preinstalled. Almost everything worked flawlessly out of the box, but there were two oddities:
“This is the answer from Hoang le Minh (Vice director of HCMC Post & Telecom service - Government) to a reporter from Echip questioning him about the Classmate PC project from Intel and the possible choice of Hacao linux as operating system (instead of Windows). In summary : the CMPC has some physical limitations (256 MB Ram, 1 GB Flash memory) which prevents it from effectively using Windows operating system.

economist.com: Rejoice: the embrace of “openness” by firms that have grown fat on closed, proprietary technology is something we’ll see more of in 2008. Verizon is not the only one to cry uncle and reluctantly accept the inevitable.
pintooo15.livejournal: I tested the live version of sabayon linux 3.4f mini edition (CD) 64bit on my dell inspiron 1501 with AMD Turion tl-56 dual core. Key components are sata hard disk, ati onboard graphics accelerator, broadcom ethernet and wifi and other untested parts
stuff.techwhack: amaroK is the ultimate music management software, and for a casual music buff like me, it’s the best you can get out there. What separates amaroK from the other popular players in the market are its features which are targeted to make music management and playback easy, and a pleasing experience. Here, I’ve highlighted some of the key features of amaroK.
itmanagement.earthweb: There are two things that I know with absolute certainty to be true; that Elvis is dead and that Linux poses no immediate threat to Microsoft’s business model.
zerias.blogspot: I asked one of the employees off the record if he could comment at all on the impact of Vista sales on the end of CompUSA's business. With a glaring look he responded I'd be better off asking about the returns. Returns?
ubuntugeek.com: Whowatch is an console, interactive users and process monitoring tool.It displays information about the users currently logged on to the machine, in real-time. Besides standard informations (login name, tty,host, userâs process), the type of the connection (ie. telnet or ssh) is shown.
DPotD: A package I find useful is cpipe. It is simple tool you can use to determine the throughput of a pipe. Potential uses of cpipe might include determining the speed of backups that use tar and dd, your system’s pseudo-random number generator, or an OpenSSH tunnel or OpenVPN.
The VectorLinux development team is proud to announce the release of VectorLinux 5.9 final GOLD edition. This is the fruit that has resulted from several months of coding, debugging and testing by the core development team and the Vector community.

iTWire: There are 35 days left before Australia's national Linux conference gets underway in Melbourne on January 28 but tickets have already sold out.
linuxshellaccount.blogspot: In this post, I wanted to hit on the basics of working with RPM's in Linux. RPM stands for the Redhat Package Management system - basically, they're the software packages that make up your system.
thecrumb: My kid’s PC is REALLY old. I decided for Xmas I’d get them a new PC and ordered one of the $199 Wal-Mart Linux PCs.
kdedevelopers: Now that OpenOffice.org does make some splashes in the IT press for the sole achievement of having created a "portable" version that can run from an USB stick (on Windows only, that is) -- isn't it time for klik to get ready for gaining its own share of public fame sometime soon?
