raiden's realm: Welcome to part 5 of our Linux Media Player Roundup! Today we'll be going over several more media players for you to consider.
Dana Blankenhorn: Our Crave blog has compiled a list of the top 10 open source projects for consumers, and while their list covers 11 Web pages here’s the whole thing, Letterman-style.
budlite.blogspot: I've been a kde user for very long time, since from before version 3.0. I have been anticipating kde 4.0, the next major release since 3.0 I suppose. But it seems that is just its problem! Its too much of a major release to be pushing out in such a hurry.
readthisaloud.wordpress: Were you shocked as well when you found out that your Ubuntu (in my case Kubuntu Gutsy 7.10) wouldn’t playback DVD’s that you’ve LEGALLY purchased in shops or through Amazon?
computerworld: A new software development collaborative service for Ubuntu Linux is being launched today to give developers a consolidated arena to build code for Ubuntu on the desktop, server and for mobile applications.
itwire.com: A friend said to me recently that “Firefox is for the home, Internet Explorer is for the office.” His comments reflect commonly found stigma and fears that free and open source software – and Linux too – are not suitable for a business environment. Let me set the record straight.
justuber.com: Given the explosive arrival of Linux into the consumer desktop market, I thought it’d be interesting to check out the operating system at the heart of the best selling Walmart Linux PC. Let me introduce you to gOS.
justanothertechblog.blogspot: I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving! I know that I enjoyed the days off of school, and thankfully having nothing better to do than finally install the latest Ubuntu: 7.10 "Gutsy Gibbon." So onwards now, lets see how it fared:
informationweek.com: The creator of Linux is excited about solid-state drives, expects progress in graphics and wireless networking, and says the operating system is strong in virtualization despite his personal lack of interest in the area.
lightandmatter.com: It was time to buy my daughter a cheap Linux system to be used for schoolwork and playing flash games — well, mostly for playing flash games. I decided to buy the new Everex TC2502 Green gPC being sold at WalMart. Er, supposedly being sold at WalMart.
fosswire.com: Way back in June, Peter discussed KIO, KDE’s backend system that applications can use to read and write virtually anywhere. GNOME, with GnomeVFS, provides similar functionality, though admittedly it is lacking in several areas.
Jack Wallen: The day after Thanksgiving I was asked by my boss if I would be willing to go to his house and do something about his computer. The computer (a fairly nice piece of hardware) had come to a near stop. The machine was taking up to ten minutes to boot and the applications were practically unusable.
Matt Asay: It's been at least a week since the last bout of Microsoft FUD hit the wires, so I guess it was time for a new wave. Today's FUD comes from an article Microsoft released on how its security compares with that of Linux. It should come as no surprise that Windows comes off as the Second Coming while Linux is left on the wrong side of Acheron.
lastkth-en.blogspot: Flock is a web browser based on Firefox, which besides a look sort of different, many social networks are integrated. Today, I am going to show you the main features and how to install it in (K) Ubuntu.
jorgeonprogramming.blogspot: I recently took the plunge and have been using Ubuntu 7.10 on my home desktop for the past three weeks. I was somewhat content with Windows XP. However, Windows had been behaving strangely recently. I felt that the best way to fix the problem was to wipe the hard drive and re-install everything.
richbradshaw.wordpress: bash is the default shell in many Linux distros, including Fedora, Ubuntu, Redhat etc etc. If you use a Linux based OS, then chances are that you are using bash. For this reason, I outline below a few common annoyances, and the simple ways to over come them.
myah.org: Myah OS 3.0 Alpha 2 is now available. There have been many improvements since Alpha 1 was released. The main focus was on bug fixes and updates. There are still some unfinished aspects of 3.0 before it will enter the Beta phase.
polishlinux: The newest version of Wine (Windows API Linux emulator) allows one to run foobar2000 with most of its plugins in Linux. At last ColumnsUI works correctly! There are a few inconveniences, of course, but more on that later. Let’s check them then!
