This tutorial shows how you can set up a Mandriva 2008 Free (Mandriva 2008.0) 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.
In this week's KDE Commit-Digest: Replacement of the "toolbox", and a new KRunner in Plasma, with many applets moving from playground into extragear in KDE SVN. SuperKaramba is now fully integrated into Plasma. A move away from KDEPrint facilities, towards more basic functionality for KDE 4.0.
OSWeekly: I have been successfully using GIMP for what seems like years. It's free, it's stable and once you understand the rather strange menu layout, it actually provides fantastic functionality. But the reality remains that some people are still trying to come off their Photoshop dependency, and for these individuals, the argument about how fantastic it is tends to fall on deaf ears.
c|net: On Thursday, Canonical plans to release "Gutsy Gibbon," the Ubuntu Linux version 7.10 that the company hopes will lay the foundation for a serious push into the server and other markets six months from now.
Carla Schroder: One of the (very many) areas in which Linux has pulled ahead of the pack is with live, complete Linux distributions on every form of removable media. There are dozens, if not hundreds, of different rescue Linuxes, so we'll take a tour of my favorites.
geekzone.co.nz: Even in this day and age you can sometimes still hear the echo of the old FUD: Installing software under Linux is difficult. Really? Maybe that was the case in the past, but it certainly doesn't hold for modern Linux distributions anymore.
magepower.org: Hello Jaka, thank you for taking the time to do this interview for Mage Power. Would you tell us about yourself and how you became interested in Linux?
cubicgarden: So its been a while but I'm finally getting my head around the gnu/linux system and environment. There are some great things about the switch which makes me cringe everytime I go back into windows (on my work pc and when I want to read my busted sd card - more on this soon). But there are some bad things too.
Also: Ubuntu Gutsy: Lookin’ better than ever!
linux.com: Translating a command line tool to a graphical interface usually means a loss of functionality. However, in the case of the newly released trowser text browser, while I wouldn't swear that the transition has retained all the functionality of the less command that it is intended to replace, I doubt that anyone short of an expert is likely to notice the difference.
antirez.com: Yesterday I bought a Microsoft webcam: it's not an exception, like most of the stuff from Microsoft I had (very little, fortunately) something to do with in my life it's a low quality product: all eye candy and little substance.
canada.com: Vietnam's Communist Party plans to switch its 20,000 desktop computers nationwide to open-source software next year, avoiding problems with copyright infringement, state media said Friday.
John C. Dvorak: Though the open-source movement isn't going to die anytime soon, it's looking a little ragged at the edges. And with the appearance of the onerous GPL v3 and the slow deterioration of the popular Firefox browser, I now wonder if open source may have been a fad, or perhaps just a more elaborate iteration of the shareware phenomenon in the 1980s.
desktoplinux: Canonical, Ubuntu Linux distribution’s commercial sponsor, has announced that the release version of Ubuntu 7.10 Desktop Edition will launch Oct. 18.
iTWire: Last week I downloaded Mandriva 2008 just to have a look. The 2008 version of Mandriva is extremely easy to install - it took just 14 minutes for a working interface, including configuring every bit of hardware that I wanted to configure.
liquidat: While Fedora 8 will not ship with KDE 4 as the default KDE version there will be all necessary packages available to provide a development environment. Now these packages also entered the Fedora 7 repository.
novell cool blogs: The past few weeks I’ve read a number of pieces on the viability of Linux on the desktop. Pros (very few in most cases), cons (complete lists of them!) and more than a few passionate responses. It’s hard to read through these and not be taken by the fervor that nearly everyone writing and commenting has regarding this topic.
