carsonspost.wordpress: This is the third post in a series where I examine experience with the Linux Operating System. This post will have a look at the software that I have found available to the Linux user, comparing it to what is available on Windows, and what to do when you need that Windows program but are running Linux.
linux journal: Some evidence suggests that GPLv3 uptake is coming along nicely, while other reports indicate a reluctance to adopt it (but note also Matt Asay's neat reconciliation of these contradictory messages). To see what's likely to happen in the long term, it's useful to look back at the past history of licence adoption.
groklaw: Novell is getting money, they claim, market share, although you will note Andy Updegrove challenges that story, pointing out that sales leveled off after the initial spike. But the main takeaway, as they might put it, for me is that this is an anti-Red Hat deal, and Novell is thrilled about that.
polishlinux: After a boring and dry customary introduction in the previous part of the article, Windows vs Linux: Architecture, part I, I went on to describe problems with Windows system accounts, kernel architectures, system security, and both kernel and user modes. Welcome to the second part of the article.
In this article I will show how to install and configure BlockHosts on a Debian Etch system. BlockHosts is a Python tool that observes login attempts to various services, e.g. SSH, FTP, etc., and if it finds failed login attempts again and again from the same IP address or host, it stops further login attempts from that IP address/host.
Linux By Example: You extract info from mysql databases easily by execute the command line mysql -e. The results of sql statements can be save into various format of files, such as plain text without ascii table borders (batch mode), html (with table tags, such as td,tr,th) and XML.
kernelTRAP: "The fact that we continue to expose internal data structures via sysfs is a gaping open pit [and] is far more likely to cause any kind of problems than changing an error return," Theodore Ts'o noted, responding to a thread discussing a patch to fix an error return code.
Foresight is really great for seeing the latest gnome; one can show off the bleeding edge desktop. Foresight also has a great out of box experience. Foresight is having a great theme and is quite user friendly. I would recommend it to every one, coming to me, asking for which Linux to start with.
futurepages.net: This artlicle will show you how to install Gentoo OS from a minimal installation CD on your computer. Before proceeding, please ensure that you have the following: A computer infront of you, Available connection to internet, and At least one and a half hours of free time.
playstation.com: This is a very simple guide that will teach you how to Install Ubuntu linux on the PS3 and to get more out of your powerful system .
the linux movement: Now that I am using Gutsy and a Ubuntu based wallpaper background, I thought I would make a Ubuntu theme for awn and share it with all of you. Its pretty basic but fits in with the Human theme for Ubuntu very well:

And: Clean install with Gutsy....
tech.blorge: A French national has won a lawsuit against Acer over a laptop he purchased that came pre-loaded with Windows XP and other software he didn’t want installed.
Dana Blankenhorn: Venture capitalist Ann Winblad said open source and open standards has made life tough for Microsoft’s co-founder and other kingpins that used to rule the software industry.
dedoimedo.com: I use DOSBox to play the great oldies. 1942: The Pacific Air War runs quite well, with the exception of sound that sometimes stutters a bit, but it's exceptional fun regardless.
Dave Rosenberg: I am hesitant to even mention Novell at this point but I saw this article "Novell credits Microsoft for soaring Linux sales" wherein Novell gushes about how well they are doing thanks to their satanic pact with Microsoft.

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.
