linux.com: Poster presentations are a common way of presenting results, proposing strategies, and explaining concepts and methods. You can create nifty poster presentations with Scribus, the free desktop publishing tool.
free software mag: Mail merges are a great way to save time, since they pull information from the same fields, over and over again with each new record in your database. There’s only one problem—all records aren’t created equal; they don’t all have, or all need, the same fields. This article solves that perpetual problem with labels.
OSWeekly: Since starting on my quest for a flawless wireless support with Ubuntu Dapper, and then finally understanding the level of support to be expected with the Ubuntu distro itself, I've come to the following conclusions.
ZDNet: Sorry, my students’ steady stream of “your mom” jokes brings out my inner 14-year old. However, this is the first in my series this summer of training for the masses and the point is that your mom (or your grandmother, or your most typewriter-bound secretary) could quite easily Kubuntu (or Ubuntu, or SUSE, or whatever).
desktoplinux: Last week, more than 230 Linux leaders converged on Google's Mountain View, Calif. campus to discuss the most pressing issues for Linux, at the first-ever Linux Foundation Collaboration Summit. Today, the Linux Foundation released a statement summarizing the event's main accomplishments.
linux.com: Joomla! project leader Louis Landry and his colleagues want to protect the project they love. That's why, after two years of allowing proprietary plugins for the open source CMS, the group has decided to ask third-party developers for voluntary compliance with the terms of the GNU General Public License, under which Joomla! is licensed.
iTWire: There are exactly nine days left for Microsoft to get other Linux companies to sign up for patent cross-licensing deals. The GPLv3 is set to be published on June 29 and once that is done, any new deal will be subject to the terms which it includes.

Just Another Tech Blog: As we all know, Fedora 7 ships without support for playing MP3s, DVDs, and many other media types that we are exposed to every day. The default repositories don't offer much help with this problem, but luckily it is an easy one to fix.

Greg KH: With all products that bundle up an every-moving target of an OpenSource projects, there are trade-offs and for the past five years or so the two big Linux distros, SUSE and Red Hat have been trying to walk the line between stability and new features and doing so quite well. But now that we have been living with these models for a few years, a number of problems have come to light
/home/liquidat: I created a short screen cast showing the integration of Nepomuk in Dolphin. The video shows how Nepomuk works inside of KDE 4’s Dolphin: rating, commenting and tagging are shown with short examples.
LinuxWorld: ThinkFree Inc. added offline support to its online application suite Tuesday and launched it as a US$7-a-month alternative to Microsoft Office.
mozilla links: Firefox has been chosen as one of the top 100 Web 2.0 sites and services by about half a million people who participated in CNet’s Webware 100 2007.
lockergnome: Ubuntu has been hailed as the Linux distribution for newbies, and it’s certainly the Linux for the less geeky among us. Full of tips, tricks, and real-world projects, Ubuntu For Non-Geeks, 2nd Edition is a hands-on, project-based, take-it-slow guidebook for those interested in — but nervous about — switching to Linux.
FOSSwire: Since the days of early Unix, systems have always had different methods of starting up, shutting down, and managing jobs. Throughout the development of Linux distributions, many saw the usage of System V init. Slackware Linux now uses a BSD-style init system, and Gentoo uses completely its own. Fast forward to mid 2006: Canonical software saw the release of Ubuntu 6.06 that began to test out a new startup system based on System V Init called it “upstart.”
FreeSoftware Mag: The “Linux libc” fork of the GNU C Library is now a mostly forgotten event. The fork lived from 1994 to 1997/8—just before my time—but I’ve found interesting accounts of it by others.
CNET: The open-source Mono project will show off an early version of Microsoft's Silverlight browser plug-in running on Linux later this week. Work on the plug-in, called Moonlight, was started only in May, after Microsoft's Mix conference. Moonlight uses version 1.1 of Silverlight, a browser plug-in for displaying interactive Web applications, which is due in the fall.
dot.kde.org: KDE has a number of sub-projects that have blossomed into enormous projects of their own. A number of them, such as KOffice, or KDE-Edu get a lot of press in the open source world, while the KDE PIM project has been quietly gaining corporate acceptance as a suitable enterprise suite. Today's feature are the libraries that power the KDE PIM project.
linux insider: Apple's launch of Safari on Windows has already managed to irk a competitor. However, Mozilla's John Lilly isn't upset that there's a new browser in town; what bugs him is how that new browser was introduced. One of the pie charts Steve Jobs used to illustrate browser market share showed only Microsoft's Internet Explorer and Safari, with no mention of Firefox or any other browser.
the distrogue: Well, the promised uber-review is finally here. With the release of Ubuntu 7.04 (aka "Feisty Fawn"), a new fork of Ubuntu, named "Ubuntu Studio", was released, to go along with Kubuntu ("LinuKs for KHumans", released with 5.04), Edubuntu ("Linux for Young Humans", 5.10), and Xubuntu ("Linux for Gamers and Humans with Old Hardware", 6.06 LTS). It focuses on content creation, containing numerous tools for audio, video, and picture manipulation and creation.
Marc Wagner: This morning, I read a piece by my Education IT colleague, Chris Dawson, entitled Making “hamburger of Microsoft’s cash cow” and I was struck by one important observation: “Open Office needs to worry less about duplicating features of Office and more about “selling” itself as a viable piece of software in its own right. “
