kernelTRAP: "Looking at these graphs (and the fixed one from your second email), it sure looks a lot like CFS is doing at *least* as well as the old scheduler in every single test, and doing much better in most of them."
arstechnica: The Avant Window Navigator (AWN) is a dock utility for Linux that displays the task list, launchers, and other applets. It's heavily inspired by the Mac OS X dock and it leverages compositing to provide extravagant visuals as well as decent usability.
Raiden's Realm: By proper definition, an Applet is a little program that serves a specific purpose and fills a minor or niche need within your system. These items may not be thought of very often due to their small presence and limited scope on the system, but they’re no less important than your office suite.
tectonic: Admit it. You enjoy using the command line in Linux. You only have a graphical interface so people in the office don't look at you strangely. So why not embed a terminal window into the Gnome desktop and have a soothing desktop picture and the power of the command line all at once?
tom-buntu: Animated wallpaper may not be very useful, it just looks sweet. In this how-to I will explain setting up an animated background that works with Compiz Fusion on Ubuntu using a program called XWinWrap.
phoronix: On the review bench today we have the GA-P31-DS3L from Gigabyte. This P31 motherboard supports Intel's Core 2 45nm processors, DDR2-1066 memory, all-solid capacitors, and many of the other innovations found on the GA-P35-DS3S. Nevertheless, is the GA-P31-DS3L that currently sells for about $75 USD able to perform well under Linux like the GA-P35-DS3S?
opensuse news: openSUSE 10.3 will see the first small parts of KDE 4 creeping into the distribution. KDE 3 will still be the default KDE session for openSUSE 10.3, but KDE 4 will be making its way in steadily. Today we will see what exactly is new in openSUSE 10.3’s KDE 4 applications and we’ll also be talking to Dirk Müller, a long-time openSUSE and KDE core developer.
pclinuxos2007.blogspot: I have been looking for official PCLinuxOS Gnome version since 2005. Thanks God it’s now in the making. I came across a Gnome remaster of PCLinuxOS 2007 at www.linuxgator.org
linux.com: The Journaled File System (JFS) is a little-known filesystem open sourced by IBM in 1999 and available in the Linux kernel sources since 2002. To learn more about JFS, I installed it as my root filesystem. I found it to be a worthy alternative to the bigger names.
techlogg.com: The push for an open-source operating system is hardly newsworthy stuff, after all, Linux has been championing the idea for years. The only problem is that Linux is no Windows replacement. And that’s what ReactOS is aiming to do.
kernelTRAP: "In the patch you really remove _a_lot_ of stuff," commented Roman Zippel in his reaction to Ingo Molnar's latest updates to the Completely Fair Scheduler.
ruminations: For the larger part of the last 12 months I have been using Ubuntu and the GNOME desktop. Now it’s time to take a closer look at the KDE desktop and really use the applications that were designed for it.
the register: If you have anything at all to do with open source software, you'll want to listen to Episode 2 of Open Season because there's a good chance we said something good or bad about you.

dvd-guides.com: The Arch Linux project was started by Judd Vinet in his attempt to create his own ideal distribution. He wanted to make a lightweight and simple system aimed at power users. I believe that Arch is an excellent flavor of Linux that hasn't got the share of publicity and attention if deserves from the community yet.
linuxseekers.com: Sidux 2007-03 is a Sid-based Live CD. For those who need a "more-friendly" and more stable Debian sid, then Sidux is for you. I think Sidux would also appeal to those users who prefer a rolling-release type of Linux distro, so that they don't have to reinstall the resident Linux distro whenever the "hot cake" arrives every 4 to 6 months.
rare-it.com/blog: My PC died two days ago. I bought new hardware. Today I assembled the whole shebang. Not knowing what to expect when powering up the system, I could never have guessed I was in for a very very pleasant surprise.
Tip 'o the Day: Rockstar Games has been kind enough to release some of their classics for free download– including Grand Theft Auto and Grand Theft Auto 2. Here’s a quick howto on how to get GTA2 running under WINE. So get ready to blow up some hummers and hos!
kernelTRAP: "It turns out that USB devices suck when it comes to powermanagement issues :(" lamented Greg KH in posting some patches to handle USB autosuspend problems.
vnunet: Canonical has stated that its Ubuntu Server needs increased support from independent software vendors and system builders. Increased vendor support could boost Ubuntu's overall credibility. Oracle's support for Linux in 1998 is considered a watershed moment in the history of the open source operating system.
