writelarge.com: The other barier to GoogleOS, at least for me, is the GOOGLE IS WATCHING YOU factor. I fear Google. I don’t feel like Google is as honest as I’d like them to be. Would Goobuntu be nothing more than a widgeted up install of Ubuntu that spies on you?
phoronix: The first release candidate for Copernic, or perhaps better known as the codename for Mandriva Linux 2008, has been released. Mandriva Linux 2008 includes GNOME 2.20, the Linux 2.6.22 kernel, Compiz Fusion, and XDG menu migration and XDG user directory system.
kmandla.wordpress.com: Part of my motivation in jumping around so much is to sniff out the general state of other XFCE distributions, in case I’m driven by a wild urge to ditch Xubuntu altogether, and move in a different direction.
drobe.co.uk: An ambitious initiative to eventually run RISC OS desktop software on Linux-powered PCs took a step closer to reality this month. Issues with the user interface code have been addressed, and a bootable CD is being prepared to demonstrate the system's abilities.
nashuatelegraph.com: So, we’ve installed Linux on an older Celeron laptop in an effort to breathe new life into the old boy. Here are our recommendations for Window users who, like us, are Linux newbies:
phoronix: It was less than a week ago when we last updated you on the status of the $150 Medison Celebrity laptop. At that time the insanely cheap laptop was still no where to be found. Over the weekend the Medison Celebrity website was shutdown.
the inquirer: UNLESS YOU'VE GOT a couple of mirrored hard drives to ensure that a disk failure won't send all of your precious data to that great bit-bucket in the sky, you need to backup your data.
daniweb: A new forensic computer from a UK based company promises to make the task of gathering evidence at the scene of a crime much easier. The dual booting Windows XP and Suse Linux TreCorder portable forensic lab is built into a rugged portable chassis and can simultaneously copy up to three hard drives at a speed of 2GB per minute per drive.
kdedevelopers.org: I've never seen Xinerama combined with Compiz/Beryl/XGL (or AIGLX) in action. This morning, when checking out a printing-related blog, I stumbled upon a little YouTube video showing exactly that. It does look amazing indeed.
This tutorial describes two ways how to give users chrooted SSH access. With this setup, you can give your users shell access without having to fear that they can see your whole system. Your users will be jailed in a specific directory which they will not be able to break out of. The users will also be able to use SFTP in their chroot jails.
DPotD: I’ve recently grown paranoid about my data, and I keep using rsync to keep backup of various files a bit everywhere. But it lacks fundamental things you would want from a real backup system. So I went looking for something else, and I found duplicity.
itToolbox blogs: Stop being dragged through constant product upgrades that you are forced to do to stay on a supported version of the product. Aren't you tired of telling your customers to wait because you have to spend a month or two upgrading to version 7.01G of Product X and following it up with an incremental hot fix?
pbreview.com: Well, I have been on a binge right now to test out the top 5 linux OS providers. I tried ubuntu, kubuntu, pclinuxOS2007, and fedora core 7 which I am running right now, and openSuSe10.2.
kernelTRAP: Bharata Rao posted a query to the Linux Kernel mailing list looking for ideas on how to best handle filesystem namespace unification with Union Mount, "typically this is done by reading the directory entries of all the union'ed layers (starting from the top and working downwards) and merging the result by eliminating the duplicate entries.

And: Kernel Summit: customer panel and group photo
ruminations: The first few days I have been busy with installing and trying to install new software. Maybe I am weird and a software glutton, but I like my install base to be fat. The more software to play with, the better. Fooling around with the PBI’s, the commandline based install via pkg_add and testing out KPorts as a graphical frontend for the ports collection resulted in some mixed results.
dot.kde.org: Tagua, a generic boardgame for KDE, is approaching version 1.0, and the developers decided it's time to get the word out on this exceptionally cool application by releasing a first Alpha.
kmandla.wordpress.com: Ordinarily Zenwalk is mentioned in the same breath as distros like Xubuntu or Slax, as a full-featured alternative to something like Ubuntu, that generally has a quicker feel to it. I have suggested it to many people myself and for those same reasons, but this time my own advice turned out to be a disappointment.
Linux Tip: Smoothwall Express is an internet firewall, which allows you to protect your network, as well as providing NAT functionality. It is ease to use and configurable via a web-based GUI. This open source firewall distribution requires absolutely no knowledge of Linux to install or use. This workshop shows the installation and basic configuration of the current release Smoothwall Express 3.0.
Linux Journal: OpenOffice.org Writer is better at justification than most word processors and desktop publishing programs, but you need to be prepared to work at it. Before you set your paragraphs to full justification, you need to consider whether it's an appropriate choice for your layout. Then you need to set it up correctly, and be willing to tweak the results if you want results that are as professional as possible.
