tastic.brillig.org: This is my attempt to cut through the hype and uncertainty to find a storage subsystem that works. I compared XFS and EXT4 under Linux with ZFS under OpenSolaris.
CLICK: I downloaded and burned the Xubuntu Gutsy Herd 5 live CD and loaded it up. I realize that this is beta and not all the bugs are worked out, and with that criterion, things are working very well. But I'm left wondering "Why?"
FOSSwire: Flash is everywhere on the web nowadays. From YouTube (and the myriad of other video sites), to corporate websites, to online portfolios, a web experience without Flash Player installed isn’t really a complete web experience. For some time, the GNU Project has been working to build a free replacement for Flash Player.
DesktopLinux: Vista's been something of a flop. I know it. You know it. Even in Bill Gates' secret sanctum hidden underneath his mansion they know it. Businesses, in particular, aren't about to touch Vista for corporate desktops until they get SP1. Guess what? They're not going to be getting it anytime soon.

zdnet blogs: Novell’s partnership with Microsoft to resell SUSE has drawn fire from many quarters, but in the end the deal appears to have delivered the desired effect: Jump start Novell as a Linux player.
kernelTRAP: Ying Huang continues to work on his kexec-based hibernation patches. Currently only supporting the i386 architecture, Ying notes, "the setup of hibernation/restore is fairly complex. I will continue working on simplifying."
linuxworldexpo: It is with regret that we must announce that LinuxWorld Conference & Expo 2007 has been postponed until spring 2008. We hope to be in touch shortly with new dates.
c|net blogs: After my Monday-morning blog post reporting on some preliminary battery-life testing for the XO laptop from the One Laptop Per Child project, I was contacted by Jim Gettys, vice president software for OLPC.

linux-blog.org: For those of you who always thought PCLinuxOS and MythTV would go together...you’re quite right, they do fit well together...though there are a few bumps on the road. Hopefully, this how-to will help you along the way.
linux.com: Do-it-yourself distributions have made great strides since Linux from Scratch, or even rPath's rBuilder Online. One of the most elegant tools to emerge recently is Custom NimbleX, a PHP program that allows you to construct an ISO image in your browser and then download it.
kmandla.wordpress: My sudden defection from the dwindling Graveman fan club (is there anyone left there now?) set me to wondering what other applications I’m clinging to, that might not have any real merit to them. As best I can tell, all these are available in both Arch and Ubuntu.
phoronix: Back in 2006 there was no open-source R500 driver either. Over the past 16 months with R500 support in the fglrx driver, the features have continually improved with an AMD Catalyst Control Center for Linux and support for the newer R500 graphics cards.
liquidat: Rex Dieter today announced that there will be no KDE 4 for Fedora 8. That’s sad but understandable. But now I wonder where I will get my KDE 4 from.
Linux Journal: In this final section I'll present some MIDI-specific troubleshooting tips, along with a brief description of the setup here at StudioDave, a few closing remarks, and of course some links to the Linux music-maker du jour.
itwriting.com: I am currently writing about Ubuntu Linux, and for convenience and interest decided to install it on my Toshiba M400 Tablet. I could have used Virtual PC, but although virtual PC and the like undoubtedly have their place, there is no substitute for a real install if you want to get the full flavour of an operating system.
linux.com: When I first started learning to read, my primary motivation was to gain the ability to read the comics in my local paper. I had no idea at that time that there were so many comics in the world. Now I know that there are comics all over the Web, but who has time to go to each site each day and read the latest strip?
vertito.blogspot: Stellarium is a real-time 3D photo-realistic nightsky renderer. It can generate images of the sky as seen through the Earth's atmosphere with more than one hundred thousand stars from the Hipparcos Catalogue, constellations, planets, major satellites and nebulas.
Linux Journal: For most of us, file formats are right up there with printer drivers in terms of fun. Certainly, they're important, but not something you'd look to for excitement. And yet that is precisely what the battle between the OpenDocument Format and Microsoft's OOXML is providing.
zeapartners.org: What would be the potential impact on the development of the Information Society if public organisations were to release software fully owned by them under a Open Source licence?
