A Blog Of Gentoo: In my previous post I've stated that I'd like to help people to spice up their system by moving from Windows to Linux. But we all know that it cannot be done in an instant. I will explain step by step how are we going to do this so it will be easy for anyone to follow.

freesoftwaremagazine: A few weeks ago, I promised to explain how to create your own custom live CD with Fedora’s new tools. Well, last week Fedora 7 was launched and all the tools you need are available in the repositories. This even includes a brand new graphical tool, put together by the people at Fedora Unity, called Revisor, which will allow you to spin your own live CD or installation material in an unbelievably user friendly manner.
This tutorial describes how to install Xen 3.1.0 on a Debian Etch system (i386). Xen lets you create guest operating systems (*nix operating systems like Linux and FreeBSD), so called virtual machines or domUs, under a host operating system (dom0).
linuxgames: Computer-room four star generals are probably disappointed with the lack of Real-Time-Strategy games for Linux; the last commercial release worth playing was either Introversion's own Darwinia, Tribal Trouble, or Linux Game Publishing's Majesty. Before that, there was Kohan. In the commercial realm we are missing out on great games like Company of Heroes or Supreme Commander. The most recent indie RTS games of note were Gate 88 and Galcon. Is Defcon worth playing? Let's find out together!

I have installed Ubuntu 7.04 (Feisty Fawn) for home productive purpose. Here is the steps I did to install this Graphics card in Ubuntu.
bryceharrington.org: The day Dell announced I ordered one of their laptops, and today it arrived. I popped open the box to see what's included. The only Ubuntu-specific thing included was the CD. I half-expected to see the 'DELL' logo on the blue-shirted guy.

Issue 18 is here and with it another bunch of great articles all about free software. We have Andrew Min showing us how to dual-boot Windows and Kubuntu. There's Mitch Meyran's in depth article on 3D desktops and Xavier Calbet's one on Fractal generation.
