tiagoboldt.net: Today I had the roughest Ubuntu installation ever. The problem was the lack of documentation to get ndiswrapper and SMC adapters working. After some reading and trying, I’ve figured out the solution:
Beranger: I want stability and reliability, I don't need a Linux as bad as Vista, and I don't need a system that can break (1) at random, after an update; (2) six months later, when I install (or upgrade to) the next release.
blog.ccw.com.cn: X11 comes with unattractive mouse cursors, but it’s trivial to replace them with other themes. In this article I’ll explain how to install mouse cursors system-wide or for a single user, and give you links to my favorite cursor themes.
seopher: While I may be taking Seopher.com away from being completely Linux oriented, it's impossible for the impending release of Ubuntu 7.10 to be completely overlooked. Let's take a look at the newly released Gutsy Gibbon Beta to see quite how big a splash the Gibbon is going to make.
FOSSwire: Making video recordings of your screen can be very useful. If you’re trying to demo something to someone or just want to record something on your desktop, it can be an invaluable tool. One such program for recording your Linux (or other X11-based) desktop is Istanbul.

cityblogger.com: Many a times Windows users talk about what Windows can do but Linux can’t. To be fair, they need to know what Linux can do but Windows can’t.
kernelTRAP: UBIFS is described as, "a new flash file system which is designed to work on top of UBI." It has replaced the JFFS3 project, a choice explained on the project webpage, "we have realized that creating a scalable flash file system on top of bare flash is a difficult task, just because the flash media is so problematic (wear-leveling, bad eraseblocks).
liquidat: Smolt got a new project home page outside the Fedora project, making a step further towards other distributions. Also, KNetworkManager, the KDE tool for NetworkManager, was released in a new development branch which works with the new NM 0.7.
opensource.sys-con.com: Selecting open source software is often bewildering for corporate IT departments accustomed to commercial closed source software. Of all the choices, which ones are likely to meet business and technology requirements? The Enterprise Open Source Directory (www.eosdirectory.com) helps companies find the gems they need.
mrzonbu.wordpress: Great news - a MAJOR new Zonbu OS release should be arriving any day now and I’ve been playing with an early preview. It’s full of lots of changes and improvements.
phoronix: It's going on two weeks since the RadeonHD driver was made available, which is AMD's sanctioned open-source driver for the Radeon X1000 (R500) and Radeon HD 2000 (R600) series (as well as future generations of AMD GPUs). In this time, we have seen some great progress made with this open-source driver and have a few additional remarks to share about its status and the first bits of this driver's roadmap.
carsonspost.wordpress: A year ago I had the frightening Windows realization that between Anti-Virus, Firewall and Defender (what does it do?) software, my PC was still not secure. I had a couple of days of stress as I tried to unload some ugly spyware. I found this really upsetting, unbelievably frustrating and that was the point where I no longer trusted Windows.
linux.com: Confucius say, "Lao-tzu has passed us the Tao. In his mouth, there are no teeth but only a tongue. The hard ones (teeth) died, but the soft one (the tongue) lives; the soft power is stronger than the hard power. That's the Tao!" Open source is such a soft power.
kernelTRAP: "It doesn't seem to pull any dependency nor affect any other external piece of code unless I'm missing something, so it's a perfect example of what we've been discussing back then: there is just no point not merging it at any time right ? :-)"

zdnet blogs: Last night at the Skype Developer Open House in San Jose, Skype presented the public roadmap for its API (Application Programming Interface) which outlines plans for a Web service API for Skype and the open sourcing of Skype4Com.
Red Hat Mag: When Fedora 7 was released, one of the big features that we talked about was the idea of customized spins of the distribution. Now that Fedora 8 is on the way, it’s useful to look and see how we have done, and what sort of custom spins have been created.
All About Linux: One month back I had written about a content aware image rescaling technology. And I hoped that this technology will be incorporated in Gimp in the future. Well we didn't have to wait that long.
