phoronix: If you were hoping to use a Creative X-Fi series sound card under Linux in the near future, think again.
Pimp Your Linux: This OSx looking dock is by far the most advanced that I have reviewed in regards to graphics, and eye candy. However, it is a very new dock, and still might be unstable, so make sure to run it for a good while on your system, before comitting to it.
CyberNetNews: Early this year I updated you on what was happening with this release, and it has progressed quite nicely since then. Since I’m a pre-release junkie I couldn’t help but see what has improved since my last look at the browser.
Groklaw: When SCO started threatening to sue over Linux, it offered Linux users protection from lawsuits if they'd buy a SCOsource license. Some did. A smattering. Now Linux users are being offered a "patent peace" with Microsoft in a very similar way, only this time, it's supposedly patents backing up the threat. Or is it?
- Is Microsoft’s ODF vote supposed to make amends for its patent attack?
- Microsoft Patents Linux Impact: Red Hat vs. Novell
- Q&A: Microsoft won't sue over Linux, for now
- How dumb does Microsoft think we are?
seekingalpha: The buzz May 14 was all about the Microsoft/OSS “patent happening.” According to Fortune, Microsoft claims that open source software as a group violates over 200 Microsoft patents. Here are five reasons why this is not new news:
iTWire: Is ooXML, Microsoft's new documents standard on the ropes in Europe? Absolutely, according to one of IBM's prominent technology and intellectual property spokespersons. Like other areas that are starting to seriously bug Microsoft, open document standards go to the heart of eliminating the software company's proprietary lock-in.
blog.jillesvangurp.com: I’ve given up on feisty. I’ve blogged several times now about my failure to install it properly. Today I gave it another try and partially succeeded before failing again.
Falappa.Net: So you are on Ubuntu 7.04 and you want to compile the bleeding edge version of GIMP… You may wonder which packages do I need to install on Ubuntu to get all the stuff I need to successfully compile GIMP?

mozillaZine: A third set of release candidate builds for the forthcoming Mozilla Firefox 220.127.116.11 release are now available for testing. Testers can obtain these builds from the rc3 directory on ftp.mozilla.org.
arabianbusiness.com: Linux distributor Red Hat is working with Intel on a desktop PC targeted at emerging markets. Due to ship in June, the Red Hat Global Desktop will support a number of Intel's current and future platforms aimed at emerging markets.
Wired.com: When Firefox launched in beta release five years ago, it burst on the open-source browser scene like a young Elvis Presley -- slim, sexy and dangerous. But, with Firefox 3.0 poised for release this summer, the "IE killer" is in danger of morphing into an early Fat Elvis, if increasing numbers of die-hard fans turned reluctant critics are any guide.
Linux.com: Intel recently released its PowerTOP utility, which builds on work done by kernel developers to make the Linux kernel power-efficient. PowerTOP gives you a snapshot of what apps are consuming the most power. Turn off these apps or modify their behavior, and you'll notice an instant increase in the battery life.
cityonahillpress: The phrase “humanity toward others” does not usually inspire images of computer code. However, Ubuntu, the most popular version of the Linux operating system, may provide just that: humanity toward others, without the hefty price tag.
Press Release: Microsoft Corp. today announced that it has voted to support the addition of OpenDocument Format (ODF) 1.0 to the nonexclusive American National Standards list. The vote took place as part of a process managed by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI).
Phoronix: GNOME 2.19.2 is the second of nine development releases leading up to GNOME 2.20.0, which is due out this September. GNOME 2.19.2 is being released today and for those of you interested in the latest changes to GNOME, we have included some screenshots taken from GNOME 2.19.2 built this afternoon with GARNOME.
Linux-Watch: Partly in response to Microsoft's recent patent threats to Linux and other open-source software, the FSF (Free Software Foundation) announced on May 16 the creation of a new activist campaigns team to organize public support into action on software freedom issues.
seopher: Ubuntu 7.04 Feisty Fawn was released some time ago now and while I reviewed it almost immediately, once again I left Kubuntu out in the cold. I (like many others) prefer KDE over Gnome so I apologise for the delay and will give it the normal treatment.
polishlinux: A warm welcome to all fans of football manager games. I’d like to present you BygFoot — an open-source alternative for the well-known Championship Manager.
O'Reilly Radar: I don't think I'm being fusty for suggesting that most computer users see the computer as a tool for better living, not as a thing in itself that's designed for their delight. So why are developers still pushing the desktop race toward richer interfaces whose existence is supposed to justify itself?
Linux Box Admin: In my organization, squid runs on the firewall as a transparent proxy and all web traffic goes through it, while squidGuard filters content. Earlier, I spent some time talking about how to use squid and squidGuard in these roles. The next step was to set up a reporting tool to create useful reports from the log files.
