blogs.pcworld.co.nz: My only niggle with the Kubuntu installation of the Konqueror file manager/web browser is the way the file manager defaults to Icon View. I'm a geek. I like Detailed List View and find myself forever clicking the change button to set DLV. This week I finally figured out how to fix that permanently.
elcuco.blogli.co.il: I installed KDE4rc1 on KUbuntu 7.10 64bit. This is my first time running a full KDE4 session, and while I am very excited by some applications (dolphin, konsole, kate marble, and more or less all kde4games), I must admit that as a full session, it’s not worth it.
Dana Blankenhorn: There is an important lesson which can be drawn as a string through a host of recent stories, from Comcast and Cox Cable throttling BitTorrent to Verizon doing the SiteFinder thing to depredations concerning the iPhone and open spectrum.

felipe-alfaro.org: I decided to use FreeNX instead of NoMachine’s own implementation due to the instability of the latter. The process described in this post starts with the NoMachine’s binary components, downloadable from the Web, and then overwrites or replaces key components that are binary-only and closed with FreeNX’s open and free shell scripts, which provides much more flexibility.
taosecurity.blogspot: I learned about the MPAA University Toolkit at Brian Krebs' always-excellent SecurityFix blog. I downloaded the 534 MB peerwatch-1.2-RC5.iso and started it in a VMware Server session. Here I take a look at the monitoring software, focusing on Snort, operating on this application.
WSJ: Mr. Negroponte's ambitious plan has been derailed, in part, by the power of his idea. For-profit companies threatened by the projected $100 price tag set off at a sprint to develop their own dirt-cheap machines, plunging Mr. Negroponte into unexpected competition against well-known brands such as Intel Corp. and Microsoft Corp.'s Windows operating system.
ubuntugeek.com: In addition to Ubuntu 6-months stable releases and the next version of ubuntu is 8.04 with Code Name “Hardy Heron” but this release will proudly wear the badge of Long Term Support (LTS) and be supported with security updates for five years on the server and three years on the desktop.

penguinpetes.com: I aim all of these not just at Linux, BSD, and Unix-alikes, but at every computer system ever. Nor do I say all of this as a power-using geek, but to apply it to every computer user everywhere.
polishlinux: Certainly most of the Linux users would like to have their systems fully optimized for their rigs but do not have the stamina or enough knowledge to play with the Gentoo installation paradigm. But here comes the rescue — an apt-build goody available under every distro armed with the big gun - APT package manager.
mozillalinks: Firefox has been inducted to the 100 greatest PC technologies of all time, a list compiled by Maximum PC and the feature story of its December issue. In position 92:
kmandla.wordpress: Extreme Coder is still hard at work putting together a version of Mandriva for older machines. He enlisted the help of Albi to create an IceWM theme that mimicks the default Mandriva setup, and the results are fabulous.
phoronix: Last week NVIDIA introduced the 169.04 Beta Linux driver for their GeForce and Quadro graphics cards. This X.Org driver contained a number of GeForce 8 fixes, initial support for the GeForce 8800GT graphics card, monitoring of PowerMizer state information, and other changes.

linux.com: The GNOME Foundation has issued a statement in response to recent accusations that it has been supporting the acceptance of Microsoft's Office Open XML format (OOXML) as an ECMA standard at the expense of the Open Document Format (ODF), the open standard used by OpenOffice.org, KOffice and other free software office applications. However, whether the statement's attempt at logical rebuttal will do anything to reduce the emotions or altruism behind the criticisms is anybody's guess.
mobilemag.com: I'll give you some clues. It's only got a seven-inch screen, four gigabytes of internal memory, and it runs on Linux.
liquidat: SSJ created a virtual machine containing a KDE 4 build an equipped with scripts to update the machine on a daily rhythm. Equipped with that virtual machine everyone can now easily follow the development of KDE 4 without modifying a real system.
