Linux.com: VectorLinux has been one of my favorite projects since my first test of the distribution almost 18 months ago. I like VectorLinux because its roots are firmly planted in the stability and simplicity of Slackware, yet it comes with an extensive software base and lots of out-of-the-box great looks; in other words, a rock solid foundation with eye candy and useful functionality.
Raiden's Realm: Today's section, part 8 of our series on the KDE Control Center, is a very important section because it involves both your system security and your privacy. These are two things that even the most novice user should be well aware of and should take great care in observing, managing and maintaining these on their computer.
Ubuntu Blog: Ubuntu offers a lot of fonts, in addition to the defaults installed, and the MicroSoft msttcorefonts package, in its repositories. All these fonts mentioned here are provided as packages, which can easily installed using command line tools like apt-get or using Synaptic.
ZDNet (Adrian Kingsley-Hughes): Why is it that the average computer user still chooses to spend hundreds of dollars on Windows or Mac when there are countless Linux alternatives that they could download, install and make use of completely free of charge?
Mark Shuttleworth: Much has been written about Microsoft’s allegation of patent infringements in Linux (by which I’m sure they mean GNU/Linux ). I don’t think Microsoft is the real threat, and in fact, I think Microsoft and the Linux community will actually end up fighting on the same side of this issue.
Direct2Dell: Before we announce the availability of Ubuntu 7.04 on select Dell client systems, I'd like to give an overview of what customers can expect from our initial Ubuntu offering.
Phoronix: Back in March we shared with you a preview of the Tyan Toledo i965R motherboard. As we mentioned in the preview, the Toledo i965R features Intel's Q965 Chipset with the ICH8 Southbridge while fitting everything on a FlexATX footprint. We are back today with our compatibility report on the Tyan Toledo i965R as we share how it runs on Fedora 7, Ubuntu 7.04 Feisty Fawn, KateOS 3.6, Solaris Express Nevada, and BeleniX.
kernelTRAP: The task of tracking regressions between kernel releases [story] has been picked up by Michal Piotrowski who maintains a "known regressions" wiki page at Kernel Newbies. The list is divided into sections and mailed out to the lkml after each release candidate.

The Gazette: Stewart Adam is running a tech company that boasts 40 local clients. Online, he is the moderator of the largest Linux forum in North America.
Tom Albers's blog: Sometime ago Volker Krause extracted the mail sending part from KMail and put it in a separate library. Last night Volker changed KMail to also use MailTransport. So now KMail, Mailody and KNode are all using MailTransport. That means that when you add or change a smtp-server in Mailody, it is also available in KMail and KNode.
boston.com: If the open-source software movement were an upstart political campaign, Chris Messina would be one of its community organizers -- the young volunteer who decamps to New Hampshire, knocking on doors and putting up signs.

MDLog:/sysadmin: One of the nicest features of yum I have found, is the ability to work with software groups. This has been very useful for me in several occasions where I had to clean up a wrong installation.
The quality of my VoIP phone calls suffered whenever I was downloading or uploading anything. This was irritating, especially for those calling me (I heard them better than they heard me). So I poked at Iproute2 and other howtos, especially with regard to VoIP traffic, but I couldn't find anything that worked well. After some playing around, I've found settings that were right for me: consistant VoIP quality, regardless of any activities on the wire.
CBS News: Nicholas Negroponte, a professor at MIT, had a dream. In it every child on the planet had his own computer. In that way, he figured, children from the most impoverished places – from deserts and jungles and slums could become educated and part of the modern world. Poor kids would have new possibilities.
iTWire: It would be rather funny if, after all the brouhaha Microsoft has made recently about patent violations, the company is found to be violating the one thing which it passionately hates - the existing General Public Licence.
Mozilla Links: PONG!, the video game that signaled the entrance of digital addiction to homes all around is now available as a Firefox extension, developed by Captain Caveman (yep, who'd have thought).
CRN: With increasing chatter about whether 2007 will be the "Year of the Linux Desktop," you hear considerably less about whether it's time for the Linux Office. But business desktops aren't just islands unto themselves. In a networked world, the desktop is just a piece of the office puzzle.
Wired.com: In an effort to rally support for the underdog media format, the Free Software Foundation has launched PlayOgg.org, a website promoting awareness of the Ogg format.
