LinuxWorld: The Queensland government may pride itself on being the "Smart State", but when it comes to open source software adoption it is still a hit and miss affair, a new study has found.
freegamer: So here I am lamenting the lack of free (well, open source, but free is good enough) single player FPS games, and up pops this on Freshmeat; Excalibur: Morgana's Revenge.
Lone Wolves: Here at Lone Wolves we do more than just blog and write open source software. We have a small company as well and we build websites for equally small businesses in the area. It's nothing big, not even full time, but it pays for this website and the servers we need to keep our projects running. It's Linux that made this possible. If we would have been stuck on the Windows platform there is no way we could have done what we do because it would simply have been too expensive.
iTWire: With its release of Fedora 7.0 last week, Red Hat has signalled that it is acutely aware of the threat that Sun could pose to its market share in the years ahead.
Also: Fedora 7 unifies Red Hat, outside coders
Thursday Night: Inspired by Mark Pilgrim’s Essentials 2006, here are my essentials. As I was reading the article, I find that Mark and I agree on most of these things so I try to leave out the things that I completely agree with.
some guy's blog: Anyone using Ubuntu Feisty Fawn should not install the kernel update to 2.6.20-16! It comes as a security update, but it includes some nasty trickery with the ATA/SATA drivers. After I installed it I could not boot anymore, because for some reason the drive names had changed!
eWeek: Redmond has signed a set of broad collaboration agreements with Linux provider Xandros that include an intellectual property assurance.
Phoronix: With more and more people assembling MythTV boxes as alternatives to Windows Media Center or going out and buying a TiVO, for this introductory article we will share some recommendations of hardware we had used on a recent MythTV build along with other information to consider when building your next home theater PC.
venturecake: I don’t use Linux because I like messing around to get my computer working. At work I can happily script an app to document a server, or add a few hundred users and mail them their randomly set passwords. But that’s at work, with someone paying me.
moddaily: You might of heard that Windows has the most virus written for it out of all the operating system’s, you might not have heard that approximately 1,000 virus are found for Windows every month! You probably won’t know that Linux systems have less than a 100 virus written for it, but enough of the facts.
Friendly Linux: When I got my MacBook almost a year ago, I instantly fell in love in OS X - it’s Unix, it’s compatible and it’s pretty, but the love wasn’t truly returned. Sure, OS X has some cool stuff bundled, and sure, it’s easy to install and remove stuff in OS X, but well, I just didn’t feel free to do whatever I wanted, so I decided that it was time to replace OS X with something better.
computerworld: In a resounding victory for Microsoft Corp., bills seeking to mandate the use of open document formats by government agencies have been defeated in five states, and only a much-watered-down version of such legislation was signed into law in a sixth state.
polishlinux: This article is a comparison and a review of two Linux distributions that got a lot of attention recently. We will compare a fully commercial Xandros Desktop and more community-friendly PCLinuxOS.
- Command line tutorial - splitting files into smaller chunks
- How to take a delayed screen shot using the command line in Ubuntu
- Mount and Unmount ISO,MDF,NRG Images Using AcetoneISO (GUI Tool)
This tutorial shows how you can set up a Fedora 7 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.
/home/liquidat: After the final freeze of KDE 3.X I had some thoughts about KDE 4.0 and the expectations the people will have. After all I read it reminded me a bit of everything I read about KDE 2.0.

DPotD: KLone is a web application development framework that takes HTML with C embedded in as its input and turns it all into a single binary that is the server and the web app in one package.
FreeSoftwareMag: Ever since I first fired up KDE on openSuSE, I’ve been in love. But there’s always been one nagging thing. Firefox and Thunderbird stick out like two sore thumbs. They don’t look like KDE apps (see figure 1 and figure 4), they don’t work with KDE programs (like KPrinter), and they just don’t feel like they belong in KDE. Luckily, since both of these apps have support for add-ons, it is easy to remedy this.
J_K9 @ Linux: Anyone who has used a Mac will be familiar with the “Dock.” Why would we want one on Linux? There is a certain Dock which takes it even further—it provides a physics engine (Akamaru), allowing you to hurl and bounce the icons around your screen. It’s called Kiba-Dock.
Electronic Analysis: I was getting tired of Ubuntu running slower than Windows XP. I looked around online and found some guides. I decided to post about them here for two reasons: I would like to have all the info in one place, I think the more people that know about these tweaks the better. I will start with making your file system faster.
