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.
Linux.com: Clay Claiborne was an early Linux advocate, and his company, Cosmos Engineering, was one of the first computer builders to offer Linux-based PCs and servers. But Clay has never been as much about business as he's been about social activism. He cofounded the Linux Users of Los Angeles (LULA) group back in 1999, but lately he's dropped out of Linux activism and is spending most of his time on social (mostly anti-war) activism.
FreeSoftware Mag: I had a chance to talk to Steve Lake, at Raiden’s Realm. After a few words, I could tell that the project he was engaged in was very interesting, so I interviewed him...
Datamation: Within the past few years, the software movement known as “open source” has gained serious traction over its proprietary cousins. As it has taken hold of the mainstream, many of these applications – like Firefox and Thunderbird – are used everyday, without a second thought as to their origins.
Forbes.com: In its attempts to sell you ever-more expensive PCs, the computer industry is constantly producing faster, smaller and sexier machines. That's great for gamers, technophiles and Dell shareholders. But what about the rest of us? What do we get from all the bells and whistles piled into today's PCs?
vijedi.net: In a heterogeneous OS environment, the network file system of choice is clearly SMB/CIFS, mostly since heterogeneous implies the existence of windows machines. Lately though, I’ve been getting a little annoyed with some of the quirks of a file-system from the single user Windows world. I also don’t have any Windows machines left. Therefore, when it came time to share one resource to multiple machines, I decided to give NFS a try.
LinuxJournal: Almost everything that can be said has been said about the latest moves by Microsoft to create Fear, Uncertainty and Doubt (FUD) about Linux. Countless pundits and analysts have pointed out that Microsoft threats are toothless. Some have noted that Microsoft has singled out Linux and OpenOffice, the biggest threats to its monopoly on operating systems and office suites.
Linux.com: BitTorrent clients are all over the place these days. One of the newcomers, FoxTorrent, is a fully functional cross-platform Firefox BitTorrent client created by Red Swoosh, a company that is now part of Akamai. What FoxTorrent lacks in features it makes up for in simplicity.

Lateral Opinion: Kmail searches slowly. I have been a kmail user for a couple of years, since I settled in my own home office with my own computer. However, it annoys me that it takes sooooo long to find a message in my mailstore. Enter mairix.
Raiden's Realm: The KDE taskbar is an integral part of the KDE window manager and an integrated tool that will give you access to a wide variety of things that will make your experience in KDE so much easier. So let's look at the taskbar and go over each part of it.
internetnews: Open source business is gaining momentum and is no longer dominated by the discussion about how to make money. At least that's the view of Open Source Business Conference (OSBC) organizer Matt Asay who now thinks that open source has crossed the proverbial chasm.
CybernetNews: I’m sure many of you look kindly upon the fact that your web browser stores your passwords for you. It is no doubt a wonderful time-saving feature, and surely beats having to retype your password every time that it needs to be entered. Have you ever stopped to ask yourself how safe your passwords really are in your browser?
