Phoronix: With more and more people assembling MythTV boxes as alternatives to Windows Media Center or going out and buying a TiVO, for this introductory article we will share some recommendations of hardware we had used on a recent MythTV build along with other information to consider when building your next home theater PC.
venturecake: I don’t use Linux because I like messing around to get my computer working. At work I can happily script an app to document a server, or add a few hundred users and mail them their randomly set passwords. But that’s at work, with someone paying me.
moddaily: You might of heard that Windows has the most virus written for it out of all the operating system’s, you might not have heard that approximately 1,000 virus are found for Windows every month! You probably won’t know that Linux systems have less than a 100 virus written for it, but enough of the facts.
Friendly Linux: When I got my MacBook almost a year ago, I instantly fell in love in OS X - it’s Unix, it’s compatible and it’s pretty, but the love wasn’t truly returned. Sure, OS X has some cool stuff bundled, and sure, it’s easy to install and remove stuff in OS X, but well, I just didn’t feel free to do whatever I wanted, so I decided that it was time to replace OS X with something better.
computerworld: In a resounding victory for Microsoft Corp., bills seeking to mandate the use of open document formats by government agencies have been defeated in five states, and only a much-watered-down version of such legislation was signed into law in a sixth state.
polishlinux: This article is a comparison and a review of two Linux distributions that got a lot of attention recently. We will compare a fully commercial Xandros Desktop and more community-friendly PCLinuxOS.

This tutorial shows how you can set up a Fedora 7 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.
/home/liquidat: After the final freeze of KDE 3.X I had some thoughts about KDE 4.0 and the expectations the people will have. After all I read it reminded me a bit of everything I read about KDE 2.0.

DPotD: KLone is a web application development framework that takes HTML with C embedded in as its input and turns it all into a single binary that is the server and the web app in one package.
FreeSoftwareMag: Ever since I first fired up KDE on openSuSE, I’ve been in love. But there’s always been one nagging thing. Firefox and Thunderbird stick out like two sore thumbs. They don’t look like KDE apps (see figure 1 and figure 4), they don’t work with KDE programs (like KPrinter), and they just don’t feel like they belong in KDE. Luckily, since both of these apps have support for add-ons, it is easy to remedy this.
J_K9 @ Linux: Anyone who has used a Mac will be familiar with the “Dock.” Why would we want one on Linux? There is a certain Dock which takes it even further—it provides a physics engine (Akamaru), allowing you to hurl and bounce the icons around your screen. It’s called Kiba-Dock.
Electronic Analysis: I was getting tired of Ubuntu running slower than Windows XP. I looked around online and found some guides. I decided to post about them here for two reasons: I would like to have all the info in one place, I think the more people that know about these tweaks the better. I will start with making your file system faster.
Ubuntu Geek: Flock is an amazing new web browser that makes it easier to share media and connect to other people online. Share photos, automatically stay up-to-date with new content from your favourite sites, and search the Web with the most advanced Search Toolbar available today.
technologyevangelist: I'm a big fan of using the keyboard rather than a mouse whenever possible. It's so much faster to keep my hands hovering over the keys. FireFox has a ton of great keyboard shortcuts that will help you save milliseconds.
zdnet blogs: Novell is becoming too reliant on Microsoft. And given the third version of the General Public License could hamper the partnership that’s no idle concern. The sales pop from Microsoft is waning for Novell. More optimistic analysts call this waning “normalizing.”
dive into mark: One year ago, I switched to Linux for a variety of reasons revolving around software freedom, choice, and data preservation. I have spent some time tweaking, but only by choice — not to make things work, but to try some radically different ideas.
Eugenia's rants: Oh, my f****** God. So, if you buy a Dell machine with Ubuntu in it and you configure it using the available options, there is a good chance that Ubuntu Linux won’t manage to auto-configure itself to adjust to the newly added/modified hardware.
mandriva club wiki: Recently I was asked to write a small article talking about some of the tools related to audio in Mandriva Spring. I realized that writing a few things about the tools would be just the same as articles you can find in many websites and magazines. But instructions on creating music step from step from scratch, picking the right ingredients for "the song recipe", are rarely to be found. So I decided to try and make a song with only the tools I had available on Mandriva Spring, and write down how to do it.
nixcraft: Most of us work with a shell prompt. By default most Linux distro displays hostname and current working directory. You can easily customize your prompt to display information important to you. You change look and feel by adding colors.
