SearchEnterpriseLinux blog: What can the World Series and the GPL possibly have in common? Well, there’s one thing, if you stretch it really thin: October.The World Series, obviously, will begin tonight between the Boston Red Sox and the Colorado Rockies at Fenway Park in Boston, Mass. The hype, no thanks to FOX and those Dane Cook promos, has reached a fever pitch (pun intended). The GPL, on the other hand, saw above average adoption rates among open source developers and their projects.
arstechnica: Banshee developer Aaron Bockover announced the PodSleuth project earlier this week, which is designed to expose iPod metadata through the Linux Hardware Abstraction Layer (HAL).

kernelTRAP: "Can we please finish up this merge a little more before we freeze 2.6.24? The way we currently have leftovers of arch/i386/ and arch/x86_64/ is quite a nightmare and not how the other architectures were merged," Christoph Hellwig asked, leading to an insightful reply by Ingo Molnar.

appscout: One of the first things my boyfriend and I wanted to check out on our new Dell Inspiron with Ubuntu was installing Compiz Fusion, which gives your Ubuntu system really cool 3-D desktop effects. Desktop effects are an "experimental feature" in Ubuntu, meaning that they may not work with all computers and could cause your system to, well, act up. Sure enough, that's what happened to us.
tombuntu: This is the second edition of my Civilization IV (Civ 4) on Linux how-to. With this guide you can run Civ 4 almost flawlessly on Ubuntu or any other Linux distribution using Wine.

Tryst with Linux: There are some firefox extensions (add-ons) that I can’t live without and the following is the list that I need. It’s personal (of course), suited only to my need, so this list is not normative for anyone.
linux.com: X/OS Linux is a distribution built from Red Hat Enterprise Linux sources. Its developers claim it was created "to provide a hassle-free enterprise-class Linux operating system without usage terms tied to commercial services." I downloaded it expecting I might find all the refinement of Red Hat along with some improvements and the community one expects to find growing around free software. It seems I set my expectations too high.

Russia recently announced plans to include GNU/Linux in every school in the country, and ALT Linux hopes to be the chosen distribution. Below CEO Alexey Smirnov and Andrey Cherepanov answer our questions about their relationship with KDE.

beranger: I might have irrational expectations, but once you can change the layout of some desktop environment "the easy way" — i.e. by using the mouse, not by manually editing config files —, shouldn't you be able to experience some ease with that?
cybernet: One of the new things in Ubuntu 7.10 is the ability to read and write to NTFS formatted drives, which is great for Windows XP and Vista users. What that means is that you can create a Firefox profile in Windows and set it up so that Ubuntu uses the exact same profile.
