zerias.blogspot: A couple months back several vendors initiated a Vista to Xp crossgrade. Basically, if a customer ordered a computer and it came with Vista installed, the customer could get an Xp license instead. Novell claimed several months back in a video ad that Desktop Linux users accounted for upwards of 30,000,000 different people.
itwire: Linux desktop users looking for good financial software to run natively can forget about Quicken and Quickbooks. One glance at Intuit's website should be enough to convince even devout users a port to Linux desktops is a long way off and a Linux version of Quicken is not even on the radar. So what are the alternatives?
DPotD: Debfoster exists to tell you which packages are installed on your machine merely as dependencies for other packages. It then gives you the option of removing the package and its dependencies. Debfoster is most useful to keep your system very lean.
nixcraft: If you have 4 GB or more RAM use the Linux kernel compiled for PAE capable machines. Your machine may not show up total 4GB ram. All you have to do is install PAE kernel package.
nuxified.org/blog: Some people say that there are too many GNU/Linux distributions, too many people just doing their own instead of joining an existing effort. Why would we want to do that when we already have a cathedral, the one we escaped from?
dag.wieers.com/blog: "Why is there no SLES alternative distribution ?". Given all the benefits a free Enterprise Linux brings to Red Hat, Novell must be eager to want to tap into this resource, right ?
dvd-guides.com: A new release of Redhat-sponsored Fedora is always in the headlines of the Linux world as it is one of those distributions that push Linux forward by introducing exciting new features. I have used Fedora 7 for about 4 months myself until I moved over to Arch Linux so in this review I will try to point out what has been improved other the older versions.
trolltech.com/blogs: My favorite OpenDocument Format implementation KOffice is based on Qt and version two will be released after Qt4.4 is out as 4.4 is going to bring a lot of improvements for it. I’m working through some of the features that we see in ODF which are pretty advanced nice little things.
blog.thedebianuser.org: Now it’s finally official: the Asus EeePC (for Easy to Learn, Work, and Play) will be available from December in Germany and Austria for a recommended end user price of €299,- including tax.
kmandla.wordpress: I’ve been spending a rather inordinate amount of time trying to get the ugly little laptop working with the corpse of Lowarch. I know, it’s a lost cause, but it’s not without some success.
ubuntu-assist.com: I’ve been playing around with fonts in Gutsy recently, so I thought I would document on this blog.
itbusinessedge.com/blogs: Hyperic isn’t the only open source company hoping to capitalize on Ubuntu’s push for a bigger piece of the OS market, it seems. Thursday, GroundWork Open Source released GroundWork Monitor Open Source for Ubuntu and other Debian-based operating systems.
sabayonlinux.org: Last night I committed Entropy/Equo 0.7.5. Why is it a milestone? Because it is starting to bring something that no other package managers have: It’s possible to create a compressed package that self-contains the choosen application and all its dependencies. Just unpack it and double click on the executables.
penguin pete: What's driving me to put Gimp 2.4 on my Slackware box (my main office) is that I can never again do a Gimp tutorial until I am set up with 2.4. The interface overhaul is just too massive; every Gimp tutorial currently published in print or the web has now become worthless.
blogbeebe: With the final release of Fedora 8 last Thursday, I decided to perform a simple experiment with four distributions. I'd boot them on my two Gateway notebooks. The four distributions I tried were Fedora 8, Ubuntu 7.10, openSUSE 10.3, and Indiana (Open Solaris) Developer Preview.
phoronix: Last week we mentioned that X3: Reunion for Linux was going forward with beta testing, which is going on ten months after Linux Game Publishing originally announced they would be porting this X2 - The Threat sequel (the original announcement). Well, those fortunate to have closed-beta access privileges at Linux Game Publishing were finally greeted with the X3: Reunion Linux binary yesterday.

Robin 'Roblimo' Miller: I've been hearing the phrase "This is the year of the Linux desktop" for 10 years. For me, it's been a true statement for each of those years, because GNU/Linux has been my primary desktop operating system since 1997. But for most people around the world, this is the year of the the Windows desktop, same as it was last year and the year before. But if we each spent one day telling others about GNU/Linux, could we make a difference in the lives of at least a few people?
iTWire: For any parent, myself included, setting your kids loose on the net is a daunting prospect. We have to do it because the net is a fact of life - it's in our schools, the workplace, public libraries and in many if not most homes of the developed world. Therefore, do we really have any option but to give them Linux?

junauza.blogspot: Sidux is a desktop-oriented Linux distribution based on the “unstable” but most modern and up-to-date Debian branch called Sid (from the Toy Story character). The main aim of Sidux is to enhance and stabilize Sid, using its very own packages and scripts to allow a hassle-free use of Debian’s latest and cutting edge software.
