Jono Bacon: Jokosher 0.9 is out! Go and download it! If you are running Ubuntu it is as simple as installing two packages. Even easier on Gutsy, it is available in the repositories.
Linux.com: A lot of photos tagged with "HDR" turn up on Flickr and similar photo sharing sites these days. They're unnatural, surreal, sometimes crazy-looking images with the bright areas darkened, the dark areas brightened, and lots of saturation. You can get in on the craze under Linux using Qtpfsgui.
Thursday Night: While wasting time on teh Intarnets today, I came across this article on Linux Mint, an “improved” version of Ubuntu. However, the author of the article says, "Linux Mint comes preinstalled with is mintDisk that allows easy mounting of various partitions." This dialog is by no means “easy”.
opensourcelearning: We are working on a book about Ubuntu Linux that aims at Windows users who want to migrate to Linux or are considering it. The book is a step-by-step migration guide, but also want to provide a wide overview of what Linux has to offer.
linux devcenter blogs (Carla Schroder): Printing on any platform is part voodoo, part high blood pressure and hair loss, and part yay-it-works-it-works! Printing in Linux gets better all the time, especially when you find the right drivers.
DesktopLinux: Ever since I wrote "Why people really don't switch to Linux," I've been getting email and forum messages about why I'm right or why I'm wrong. One thing I didn't mention, though, was that really, in 2007, we're all already Linux users.
Linux.com: Two of the most popular open source instant messaging clients, Pidgin (formerly Gaim) and Kopete, can work with multiple protocols, but neither is a great option when it comes to sharing files with friends. For that, try Qnext.
liquidat: In a recent blog entry the developer airlied gave an update about the current development state of the X.Org drivers for ATI cards. After the next vesion 6.7 randr-1.2 support will be integrated.
ZDNet Blogs: The response to the Five crucial things the Linux community doesn’t understand about the average computer user post I made the other day was, well overwhelming. After wading through some of the comments I’ve realized that I missed three more points about regular PC users that some in the Linux community just don’t get.
Raiden's Realm: Everyone at some point in their life has found themselves in need of renaming a lot of files in the quickest and simplest way possible. Originally designed for the XFCE window manager, Thunar Bulk Renamer (aka Bulk Rename) also works well under other window managers such as KDE and Gnome.
dot.kde.org: Konsole has been a staple of KDE since KDE 2.0, as has been showing signs of a little bit of clutter and wear. So, Robert Knight has stepped in to clean up the program's code, and more than anything else, fix a cluttered and difficult interface.
InformationWeek: Unfortunately, we're seeing in action why Linux, which is the best operating system money can buy--because it's free--is also its own worst enemy. The big problem is that the availability of Linux drivers, though nowhere near the crisis levels it was several years ago, is still spotty.
suseforums: Ever wanted to test the new K/X/Ubuntu 7.04 Feisty, but don't have a spare partition, and don't want to jeopardize your production environment by resizing partitions, dist-updating, or tinkering with its bootloader? Now you can leave your existing Linux distro untouched, while being able to use Ubuntu 7.04 Feisty in a full-fledged install on a loopmounted partition, no partitioning required!
kernelTRAP: Miklos Szeredi posted a patch to allow files to be accessed as directories, offering the example of accessing the contents of a compressed tarball as you would any other directory. He noted that this is not the only application of the patch, "others might suggest accessing streams, resource forks or extended attributes through such an interface."

nixcraft: A shell variable may be assigned to by a statement using following syntax:
var=value If value is not given, the variable is assigned the null string. In shell program it is quite useful to provide default value for variables.
Linux.com: PCLinuxOS is a live CD distribution that enables users to test Linux without actually having to install it. The highly anticipated new version, PCLinuxOS 2007, was released on Monday. Its intuitive selection of software, high level of stability and functionality, and the quality of the graphics make this the distribution's best release ever.
PC World: Here's how to test-drive the 'Big Three' desktop environments on Ubuntu Linux and switch among them at will.
OSWeekly: One of the amusing things about people who use operating systems is that even though some of them may confidently claim that the platform they use is better than the competition, there are probably still going to be times when they covet a feature that another OS has.
