That insight prompted me to investigate other models that could be adopted and used in the open source context.
I have customized my fluxbox, I have my own set of key binding to execute programs I usually runs. I have my root menu, where I can access some programs which I do not bind on any specific key. I have my startup script which automatically load all the programs when I login. I compile my own fluxbox, and now I can’t feel comfortable without fluxbox.

However, it doesn't seem to be geared up for people like me: 11000 emails literally kill Apple Mail.
XglSnow is a plug-in for beryl that brings the familiar xsnow christmas and winter feeling to the X-desktop.
It could be just me, but why does the thought of adding a clause to the GPL 3 just to keep deals like the Microsoft-Novell collaboration from happening seem vaguely... wrong?
Gaël Duval already has a place in the history of free software as the creator of the Mandrake distribution and the co-founder of MandrakeSoft (now Mandriva). After being dismissed last March from Mandriva, Duval plans to make his mark a second time with Ulteo, a new distribution designed to simplify computing by taking administration out of users' hands. With the alpha version of Ulteo released this week after six months of secrecy, Duval talked to Linux.com about his plans.
Sooner than anyone expected it, Novell Inc.'s openSUSE community Linux distribution project has delivered a new version: openSUSE 10.2. As a dyed-in-the-wool SUSE user since S.u.S.E Linux 4.2 first appeared in 1996, I decided to immediately give this version a try.
Red Hat customers are mulling their options. But they can be bought. That’s one of the takeaways from a fascinating report today from Pacific Crest’s Brendan Barnicle based on a survey he did of 118 enterprise operating system buyers, including 86 Red Hat support customers.

I recently got Feisty Fawn Herd 1 (the first testing release) up and running in a Virtual Machine to take a look. While this is a testing distro does contain bugs, it’s interesting to look at what’s coming down the line for April of ‘07.
If you've been thinking of dipping your toes in the Linux pool, you might find a lot of the sound and fury surrounding licenses, technologies and strange dealings with Microsoft more than you bargained for when you signed up for a low-cost and powerful file server. Come on in ... the water's fine.

While Nicholas Negroponte's One Laptop Per Child (OLPC) project has garnered a tremendous amount of support worldwide, it has also become a lightning rod for critics who have questioned the viability of its long-term success and impact.
