desktoplinux: The first thing we can say about the Linux desktop in 2007 is that there are more users than ever. The Linux Foundation 2006 survey had fewer than 10,000 people signing in. This year more than 20,000 Linux desktop users reported in.
saigonnezumi.com: It is hard to believe that my 10th and 11th Grade Vietnamese and foreign students at the American International School in Saigon have been using Linux for about one month now. I am very impressed at how fast they were able to use Linux in a short period of time.
masuran.org: On Januari 11th the KDE team will be releasing KDE 4, the new release of the award winning K Desktop Environment. KDE 4 has an impressive list of new features and includes an almost completely redone code base. It’s not only faster than KDE 3 it also uses substantially less memory.
Also: KDE gestures you to easier computer control.
LinuxInsider: This week the question was raised once again on Slashdot, spurred by a Linux Magazine comparison of Ubuntu Gutsy Gibbon and Mac OS X Leopard and drawing well nigh 600 comments by Friday. Which operating system is King of the Jungle is a question that no doubt will continue to be debated as long as a jungle exists, but that doesn't mean the debates can't get heated now, too.
opendotdotdot.blogspot: Simon Willison has picked up a nice quotation from Linus he made a few years back, but what really interests me are some other things he said in the same post.
GIMP 2.4.3 is another bug-fix release in the stable 2.4 series.
linux.com: Whether you refer to online maps occasionally or on a daily basis, you can add several extensions to your Firefox browser to make Web-based mapping services even more useful.
on-being-open.blogspot: Linux has a reputation, well earned, that it will run on much more marginal hardware than most other OSes. For all is capabilities though, Linux is not magic. But it can not run on utterly non-boot-able, busted to the rafters hardware. Case in point, my brothers Ubuntu 7.04 system.
This document describes how to set up a CentOS 5.1 desktop. It provides all you need for daily work and entertainment, incl. multimedia codecs, Adobe Flash, Adobe Reader, Skype, TrueType fonts, VMware Server, ntfs-3g, Sun Java, and many more.
weblog.infoworld.com: A bootable 4 GB Flash Drive containing a portable version of Mandriva Linux 2008 is now available from Mandriva for 79 EUR ($89) and from Amazon for $94. The general idea is that you can take this little memory stick with you and be able to run Linux from it, do Internet and Office tasks with Firefox, Thunderbird, and OpenOffice, and save your files to the free space on the drive.
geekzone.co.nz: OK, so after some positive use of Suse Gnome @ work on Virtual Machine, I decided to try it out at home. Had my Vista do a complete backup not too long ago, and figured, hey it should be ok. But NO, it was not.

linuxondesktop.blogspot: MAC OS has been traditionally known for their impressive graphical interface and stability. Now even though i have been an avid Linux follower over the past 9 years I have been using Linux, still i find my self attracted to MAC OS. In this tutorial i describe step by step how to make your ubuntu desktop look more like MAC OS X Leopard.
tipoftheday: Sometimes, you just need to break through a troublesome gateway. Or perhaps you need to test a connection from a remote location. If you’re like most geeks, though, there’s already ample reason to do any of this — because you can.
pcworld (idg): More and more open-source developers these days are employees of companies, paid to work on open-source projects, rather than independent programmers doing it for fun. The change raises issues for projects, programmers and employers alike.
phoronix: Last month AMD introduced the ATI Radeon HD 3800 series as "enthusiast gaming performance for the masses" through the Radeon HD 3850 and Radeon HD 3870, which are both sub-$250 graphics cards. To see how well these two PCI Express 2.0 graphics cards are able to perform under Linux, ASUS had sent out their EAH3850 TOP and EAH3870 TOP.

The past week, 367 bugs were submitted and 294 bugs were closed, and this growth is to be seen every week. Unfortunately there's not enough manpower to cope with this. We need to find a solution or we'll drown in this bug swarm.
