kmandla.wordpress.com: A couple of years ago, when I was just getting started with Linux, I tried Slackware and managed to get a chunky old laptop online with a wireless network card. I wanted Slack to work this time too, but it didn’t happen that way.
c|net blogs: The European Union's Court of First Instance handed Microsoft a major defeat on Monday, slapping down the software maker's appeal in three significant areas of the historic antitrust case brought by the European Commission.

arun.wordpress.com: After sticking with OpenSuSE for a long time (read 2 years), I finally got one of the bleeding edge distros: Arch Linux. Oh and the answers to Why?
Raiden's Realm: A few weeks back I wrote a post on my blog page about this topic, and put some questions to my readers to know what everybody thought about it. I received a number of good responses.
ruminations: On day 9 i tried my hand at KMail. It wasn’t bad, but it wasn’t overwhelming either. Having used Thunderbird for quite some time (with a small collection of extensions) it appeared a bit bare. KMail is a lot faster to load though and that is a boon when you are running everything in a virtual box.
This article shows how you can install and use PDFedit on an Ubuntu Feisty Fawn desktop. PDFedit is a free and open-source editor for manipulating PDF documents.
ExtremeTech: It shouldn't come as any surprise that the first major release in over five years of the most popular desktop environment available is causing quite a stir. Due to be released on December 11th, KDE 4.0 is bringing exhilarating graphical, usability, and functionality improvements to the Unix-like systems it is designed for—and Windows users will get a taste, too.
iTWire: In the past, ITWire has been less than flattering over Microsoft’s OpenXML document format. Microsoft expressed disappointment at our views and said “a better story” would have been the positive benefits OpenXML can bring the interoperability between different operating systems.
FreeSoftware Mag: Fast, small, lightweight—and still a full-featured GNU/Linux: Puppy Linux combines a complete set of applications with great flexibility, yet it requires minimal hardware. This article introduces this increasingly popular GNU/Linux distribution.
In this week's KDE Commit-Digest: Continued work in Plasma, including a KMLDonkey data engine, a RSS data engine and news feed applet, and a Virtual Desktop switcher applet. More interface work for Amarok 2.0, with progress on alternate music service integration.

techzone: Its been three months since my father had made me revive my old desktop with Arch Linux. I really thank him for this. He however have gone further and now have found more tweaks and keeps me updated.
Tip o' the Day: It’s nice to have GUIs available for when we just don’t feel like reading the fine manual. But other times, it’s much quicker and more satisfying to bang out a command and be done with it.
linuxforums forum: With the arrival of Windows Vista , lots of people are looking for alternatives. And Linux has emerged as the best contender. As i have used Windows XP and Linux for last 5 years, and Vista since its release, i thought why not write an article for the people who may want to know/use/switch to Linux from Windows.
apcmag: In the first of this multi-part series we send in Ashton Mills to take on the challenge of using nothing but Linux and open source software... for absolutely everything. Will he find nirvana in the process, or lose all his hair in frustration? Follow him in and find out.
seopher: At the end of August I created a list of the 40 coolest free applications around which proved quite popular. As with all lists of this type the wisdom of the crowds brought forward numerous other suggestions that I'd overlooked for one reason or another - so here is the revised list.
Tip o' the Day: I was doing some quick clean up work and consolidation of old log files. I rotate mine by month and day, and so I end up with many log files. I’ll want to do analysis on only a few of these days or a range of days. Here are a couple quick ways to deal with sequential files and pick what you need.
liquidat: In a recent blog post Jaroslaw Staniek showed that the latest KOffice snapshot now compiles and runs on Microsoft Windows. Also Ivan Čukić created a new theme for Plasma and doing so showed that the current version of Plasma is themeable. Last but not least the first KDE 4 themes appeared on the net.
