ITWeek: Vista is pricey, and its form and function are of course dictated by Microsoft. If you want full control over your Home Theater PC (HTPC), and don’t want to have to pay Microsoft for it, then Linux is a more than capable alternative base for building a system of your own.
Warren Woodford of MEPIS has announced Beta2 of SimplyMEPIS 7.0. The kernel in Beta2 is version 22.214.171.124 which is a security update from the Kernel Development Team. All of the MEPIS Assistants and the Installer were updated to fix minor problems reported by testers. Amarok was updated to version 1.4.7. There were minor updates to some KDE 3.5.7 packages.
Linux Journal: Okay, I'm not seriously suggesting Microsoft is paying off Netcraft to produce positive survey results (although this is certainly a standard operating procedure for Microsoft). But something is odd, if not rotten, in the state of Netcraft.
Jono Bacon: Guess what folks, its coming to that time again…you got it - Ubuntu Developer Summit time!!
raiden's realm: Sabayon Linux is a distribution that seeks to take the Linux desktop and put an artistic spin to it that other distributions don’t have. Their motto of “when art meets inspiration” speaks highly to this desire. But what makes Sabayon stand out from all the rest?
Motho ke motho ka botho: I never tried it because I couldn’t get past the chihuahua mascot, but I spun it up this afternoon, and Puppy Linux gets a huge gold star from me.
lkmltimes: Richard Ballantyne asked on LKML: “What file system that is already in the linux kernel do people recommend I use for my laptop that now contains a solid state disk?”
Dana Blankenhorn: This week a number of thinkers tried to pigeonhole open source inside political philosophy. Thankfully they all failed. Why do so many people try to play “capture the flag” with it?
engineering news: The One Laptop Per Child (OLPC) project will start mass production of its first laptop model, the OLPC XO, in September, says chief technology officer Mary Lou Jepson.
theopensourceactivist: Sabayon is considered ‘close’ to Gentoo, but not necessarily ‘very close’ (atleast in my view). The reason for this is because Sabayon uses its own versions of some pretty major packages.
thecredence.com: Hardware compatibility was a major issue with Linux some years ago, but it's quite safe to say that we have gone past that point. Almost all major hardware components have Linux drivers available, and they can be used without much hassle. So lets build a Perfect Custom Linux PC.
linux.com: LightScribe technology, which allows users to etch labels directly onto CDs and DVDs, finally arrived on GNU/Linux in late 2006. LaCie LightScribe Labeler for Linux (4L) was released in October 2006, with Hewlett-Packard's LightScribe business unit releasing its own Simple Labeler a month later.
ITtoolbox blogs: Not me personally I am more than twice that age. My sixteen year old is the Linux Kernel that Linus Torvalds presented on the 25th of August 1991. To celebrate this auspicious event the Chamber of Electrical Engineer's and the Turkish Linux Users Club is having a party right here in Ankara!
The Gentoo Infrastructure team has completed its analysis of the recent exploitation attempts as well as the majority of the cleanup. The forensic analysis has revealed that while attempts were made, none were successful in compromising the machine nor in disclosing private information.
Normally Linux systems can only read from Windows NTFS partitions, but not write to them which can be very annoying if you have to work with Linux and Windows systems. This is where ntfs-3g comes into play.
iTWire: Linux has long been held in mystique as an operating system for hard-core techies or hackers. Yet, this is far from true for today’s distros. A modern version of Linux is as easy to setup and use as the Macintosh is legendary for. Here’s reasons why people stick to Windows and how those factors can be solved in what we like to call a ‘gentle’ approach to Linux.
freesoftware mag: Most modern GNU/Linux distributions are secure with their default minimal installs, whether desktop or server, while some distributions are designed specifically with security in mind. However, any GNU/Linux distribution that needs services available to other users or systems will need either enhanced or configurable security.
tipotheday.com: Wget is great; I use it all the time for simple and *ahem* "bulk" downloads. But when you're after the spirit of a web page, httrack seems to do a much more thorough job. Turning a site from dynamic content has never been easier.
