onlamp.com: X Window, X11 or "X," as it is known for short, provides the programming framework and the underlying runtime system for most Unix and Linux-based network-transparent windowing implementations. On its own, X Window requires, but does not provide software to manage and display flexible GUI elements, e.g., windows.
ITPro: Debian is both the most conservative and the most radical of Linux distributions, resolute and true to the ideals of the movement from which it sprang. The Debian project reaches back to a time when Linux was young and easy, when real programmers rode on the metal and coded in the buff, and a couple of floppies was sufficient to carry Linux, GNU and all the tools that were required to get a system up and running on a 386.
gnuski.blogspot: After a long weekend of waiting, my Asus EeePC 701 has arrived! I was at work and I had a small crowd around me the moment it came in the door. Everyone there said "wow, its smaller than I thought!" and I had to agree, sorta. But I kinda knew how small it would be since I've been following this for a long time, and waiting for a similar device for *years* now (really).
linuxgeeksunited.blogspot: Since the early days of Linux, whenever new users and others, would go to boards and forums seeking information on a specific topic, there would be the inevitable reply "rtfm".
sfgate.com: Computer programmer Hans Reiser plans to take the stand in his own defense to deny he murdered his estranged wife, his attorney said Monday.
penguin pete: ITWire has this little ditty in their open source blog, going "tsk-tsk" at the Linux crowd for being such a tenacious little bunch. So Varghese asks "Are Linux users really a feral bunch?" No, Mr. Varghese, it's worse than that. And calling us "loose-lipped or juvenile" is also missing the point.
iTWire: Well the Linux desktop is certainly here and I can prove it because as of today I'm officially an Ubuntu user and even though things aren't perfect, I feel like I've finally escaped from jail. Those of you contemplating the move from Windows, however, had better be prepared to make some compromises and even a few sacrifices.
A quick question to help shed some light on this topic. You needn't bother reading my blabble, just the usual rantings but I would like to see some views on why this whole area generates so much emotion when basically every distribution is a Yum or Apt away from being exactly the same as the next.
ruminations: Once upon a time there was no such thing as a live desktop. But that time is already way behind us and more and more Linux distributions come with a live boot option. DesktopBSD gives you the option either to go to the install menu or first go to the live desktop. Today I took a closer look at that option.
geek00l.blogspot: I'm not a big fan of Sun Solaris but I wouldn't mind to give it a try again after Solaris 9. Thanks to Sun for making OpenSolaris available and I chose to try out NexentaOS.
tectonic: Here, for the first time, are pictures of the One Laptop Per Child (OLPC) coming off the production line at the Quantas factory in China.
OSWeekly: What happens when you take 200 hardcore roughly 10 project managers heck bent on making sure that your preferred Linux distro has the best driver support possible? You end up with The Linux Driver project.
nixcraft: Is it possible to migrate the printer configuration from one machine to another, just like user migration? Yes, it is possible since Linux uses CUPS.
linux online: As far as the general public goes, however, though many may have heard the name Linux, they probably don't know exactly what it is and what it can be used for. I always say that the main weakness of Linux is not technical. The main hurdle that Linux faces is getting more name recognition. Luckily, the Linux distribution Ubuntu is changing all that.
hindu.com: Team leader C. Mahesh said that Dakshina, with Linux operating system, is a platform to deliver excellent performance for users who seek high computer power and resource in a multitasking environment.
linux.com: When you're programming a shell script, you often only need the current directory name, not the whole path that the pwd command returns. Here are four ways you can extract only the current directory.
This tutorial provides step-by-step instructions on how to install Xen on an Ubuntu Gutsy Gibbon (Ubuntu 7.10) server system (i386).
packtpub.com: Recording a good podcast is as much about good voice training and delivery, as much as it is about the technology used to record it. As with other things, you only get better with practice. In this article we will use Linux command line tools and optionally Audacity to create a quick, no-frills podcast with a background music track.
Carla Schroder: A number of pundits like to bemoan Linux's supposed lack of an integrated server stack, and wail about the difficulty of figuring out what you need, and how toilsome it is to install all the pieces separately, and how arduous it is to configure everything after you have found and installed all the separate pieces. Fortunately they're wrong.
zdnet: I had the opportunity to speak Monday afternoon with the CEO of Mandriva, François Bancilhon. Recently, a deal with the Nigerian government to use and install Mandriva Linux on 17,000 Intel Classmate PCs was derailed when the government decided to overwrite the installed operating system with Windows XP.
