liquidat: Trolltech and KDE work together for years now: the Trolltech developers are open to KDE’s suggestions and needs, and KDE itself is a big testing framework for Trolltech’s Qt. Now this cooperation went a step further: Trolltech and KDE 4 announced that both will work together on KDE 4’s Phonon in the future.
techiemoe: Puppy Linux is one of several lightweight distributions I've used in the past, and I remember being quite impressed. It is with much disappointment that I find this latest release of Puppy no more useful than Damn Small Linux when it comes to practical, offline concerns. Allow me to expand on that.
linuxlove: Linux services are basically programs that start at boot time to provide certain features and services (Apache, the web server for example). After installation, every Linux distribution provides a list of enabled services. In this post, I’ll try to explain as good as I can, most services you’ll see on a Linux distribution.
johntaber.com: . In the early days Linux may have been a drag on my businesses, diverting time away from making money - today I consider using Linux and Open Source as a competitive advantage. We now do things faster, better, cheaper.
labyrinth.org: So a couple months ago I mentioned that I was running Fedora again as my primary desktop due to some problems I was having with OpenSUSE 10.3 But that I would try it again after a couple months hoping that patches will have addressed my problems. Well here we are a couple months later and I’ve installed OpenSUSE 10.3 on my primary AMD64 machine. This time through things worked the way I had expected them two a few months ago.
lumpyscorner.com: I am in love. Not the typical, usual, I "met her at the club and she swept me off my feet" love. No this was far from that. I have seen this apple of my eye around for a long while. I thought nothing of her at first. However, for many a years I kept hearing about her.
blog.mindlesstechie.net: I remember when I first started using Gentoo (back in the Gentoo 1.4 days), the community activity was just amazing. Each and every day or week, there was always something new and exciting going on in the Gentoo community.
jonbernard.blogspot: I just acquired a Sony VAIO SZ680 and I felt like sharing my experience getting Debian installed on this thing. I wouldn't call it a "walk in the park" by any means, so hopefully someone else will find this useful.
geekfromkansas.com: The Linux community does not understand that computer users, as a rule, really don’t care about the operating system. They just want it to do its job and stay out of the way. Any real involvement with it makes them nervous. That description fits perhaps 97 or 98 percent of users.
dv8e.bbnyz.com: This post is about Linux, and the problems I’ve been dogged with since making the decision to upgrade to the latest versions of Ubuntu (7.10) and openSUSE (10.3). You can find all sorts of glowing reviews of both distributions without too much trouble, but the problem with these reviews is that nobody seems to be really doing anything non-trivial with them before they write their reviews.
matusiak.eu: Both licensing models have been around for a very long time. I don’t know which predates which, but it really doesn’t matter. The spirit behind both licenses is very similar: free software is good. But they realize this idea in different ways.

datamation: Linux, an alternative open source operating system, is nothing new to small business.
