how-to-geek: Every Geek uses Gmail… it’s pretty much required. And now you can set Gmail as the default client in Ubuntu without any extra software.
This tutorial shows how you can set up a Mandriva 2007 Spring Free (Mandriva 2007.1) desktop that is a full-fledged replacement for a Windows desktop, i.e. that has all the software that people need to do the things they do on their Windows desktops. The advantages are clear: you get a secure system without DRM restrictions that works even on old hardware, and the best thing is: all software comes free of charge.
CNET: In a significant change of course, the Free Software Foundation is working to make the upcoming version 3 of the General Public License (GPL) compatible with an alternative, the Apache License.

sKatterBrainZ World: The recent merger news of OSDL and FSG (not to be confused with MSG), as reported by InformationWeek, doesn’t ring my bell. Why? Because almost every Linux nut I know (and I know quite a few) doesn’t care about consistency across distributions.
Red Hat Mag: So Dell decided to ship Ubuntu on the desktop. Doesn’t that bother you guys at all? Let Ubuntu take the lead in building the better horse. They’ve earned that lead, and good on them.
ComputerWorld (IDG): GlassFish is the first project to spring from Sun Microsystem's decision to open source its Java programming code and Ken Drachnik, one of its chief evangelists, points to the project as a lesson in how open source spurs innovation.
kdedevelopers: Georgia is rolling out Kubuntu in all their schools. This is being done as part of a project to bring the internet to every school in Georgia. I don't have many details yet but it should become a Canonical case study soon enough.
the how-to-geek: If you’ve tried to use the built-in “Extract Here” functionality in Ubuntu’s File Roller to extract either a single or a multi-part zip or rar file and ended up with a “Password required” error, then you might just assume the files are password protected when in fact they are not.
Penguin Pete's: I saw this LXer thread (on Tux500) yesterday, and decided not to comment. Then I thought about it again last night, but decided not to blog it. Then I had a hard night sleeping, and this morning it popped up again. What was bothering me? Oh, yes, my conscience.
Linux Security: About one month ago, Snort 3.0 Alpha was released for testing in the community. If you want to be on the cutting edge of intrusion detection, packet sniffing, and keeping your system safe, check out this introduction to preparing for the future of intrusion detection.

daniweb: Gentoo has long been a distribution aimed towards the power Linux user. With this year's first Gentoo release, 2007.0, comes an updated LiveCD featuring a completely rewritten GTK+ based installer. The bigger question is, why provide a GTK+ based installer in the first place?

FOSSwire: In GNOME, it’s really easy to take a screenshot of your system, you just hit Print Screen and a handy window pops up where you can save it. For some reason, this functionality doesn’t work with KDE out of the box, but that doesn’t mean you can’t take screenshots.
libervis.com: After celebrations over Dell announcing that it will soon be selling GNU/Linux Ubuntu desktops and laptops we are seeing a bit of an uproar after, just a week later, Microsoft announced it's partnership with Dell akin to the one it made with Novell last November.
bmc blogs: I was at a conference when two techies walked into the open bar, one an open source supporter and one staunchly anti. They got into it a bit after a few drinks, and Mr. Anti commented loudly, “I wish open source would just go away! It causes more trouble than it's worth.”
Groklaw: According to sources, Dell will be selling SLES (SUSE Linux Enterprise Server) certificates, which it will obtain from Microsoft. As part of the Novell/Microsoft deal, Microsoft received 75,000 SLES licenses. From Microsoft? The Direct2Dell blog confirms that indeed Dell will buy the certificates from Microsoft, not from Novell. Why? Why not directly from Novell?
