zdnet: It took a while, but I finally downloaded the full DVD image for Novell’s OpenSUSE 10.3. A single-CD install is also available, but I wanted to have the full library of additional software available to me, as well as all of the non-open source software not included on the CD, so I braved hours of file sharing, all in the name of ZDNet blogs.
beranger: A few minutes ago, I went to ftp://ftp.gnome.org/. The first thing I noticed was that releases is a symlink to mirror/ubuntu-releases/. Is Ubuntu that important to consume GNOME's bandwidth?
futurepages.net: This is the second part of the Gentoo Tutorials. In the first section “Minimal Gentoo Installation” we have built a fresh Gentoo system using the minimal install disk and downloading the stages/ports and building the kernel. This left us with a bare Gentoo OS. In this second Gentoo Tutorial we are going to customize and add different software to the system.
mplayerhq: It's been a while, but we are still around and have decided that it's time to funnel our steady stream of daily changes into a release again.
blog.mypapit.net: The new release of Ubuntu 7.10 (Gutsy Gibbon) is just around the corner! With all these new features and latest softwares from repositories, I think it makes no sense not to upgrade to Gutsy Gibbon unless if you don’t have a fast internet connection or way too crazy to upgrade.

techzone: SUSE 10.3 was released and I had to try it. All geared up, I started downloading the torrent of the KDE version. I think this the the worst install experience I had in last one year. I was spoiled by the likes of PCLinuxOS, Ubuntu, Granular and Mint Linux.
jon-reagan.blogspot: After hearing OpenSuSE 10.3 had been released and had a CD available, I decided to give it a quick test drive.
Zero Effect: Every time I try a new distro I find my self reverting back to Ubuntu soon after I install it. The first one was back when Mandriva 2007 spring was released. The second time was just yesterday after installing openSUSE 10.3 gnome cd.
humanized.com: A lot of bandwidth has been wasted arguing over the lack of usability in open-source software/free software (henceforth “OSS”). The debate continues at this moment on blogs, forums, and Slashdot comment threads. Meanwhile, as these arguments swirl, I’ve been quietly relying on OSS to get my work done.
/home/liquidat: The KDE 4.0 Beta 3 release was shifted again - the tagging will be this Monday. If everything works out we will see KDE 4.0 Beta 3 this week.
Tristan Rhodes: I feel that is important for me to further analyze the benefits of open source software. This post should provide a more balanced view of open source and the intrinsic benefits that free software provides.
how-to-geek: After reading a post from my friend Daniel about the new release of MonoDevelop, I decided to try and install it… which is when I realized that the installation from source is so painful I'd better figure it out and share it with everybody else.
kernelTRAP: "It looks to be about 2.1% increase in time to do the make/mount/unmount operations with the marker patches in place and no blktrace operations," Alan Brunelle summarized some benchmarks testing the overhead of the kernel markers patches.

blog.platinumsolutions.com: Ubuntu works great with my Dell D820 Laptop and had no problems with my sound card, video driver, and power management. I was definitely a happy camper so I thought I'd share how to create a dual boot environment with Ubuntu + XP.
njpatel.blogspot.com: Well there you have it, Awn 0.2 has been released! With over six months since the last release, you'd think we were working on something as complicated as Gnome, but I think there are enough new features to show where the time has gone .
ariya.blogspot: I know I should be doing something "useful", but the fresh-from-oven OpenSUSE 10.3 is just too good to skip. Thus, I decided to waste a weekend to try it. In short: it's very solid and attractive, without doubt the best OpenSUSE release so far.
polishlinux: ROX is one of the genuinely interesting file managers available for the major platforms - GNU/Linux, Unix, Mac OS X, and Windows (under Cygwin). As can be inferred from the manager’s website, ROX-Filer is a project aimed to move the best features of RISC OS onto Linux and Unix platforms. Its small footprint and configurability are its unquestionable hallmarks.
Pain and Glory: “GNUstep is a cross-platform, object-oriented framework for desktop application development." Anyone who has used NeXTSTEP, OPENSTEP or Mac OS X knows the inherent power and quality of this API. So one would think that GNUstep would be quite popular.
