FreeSoftwareMagazine: I heard a phrase today that reminded me of my childhood: “...learning and sharing together”. I’m not sure if I ever heard this exact phrase, but it was definitely a theme that was central to my early education; it’s now a central theme of my life again, this time through free software.
CNN: Microsoft claims that free software like Linux, which runs a big chunk of corporate America, violates 235 of its patents. It wants royalties from distributors and users. Users like you, maybe. Fortune's Roger Parloff reports.
dot.kde.org: The day before the real start of the KOffice meeting in Berlin, most developers had already arrived. After checking in and having dinner, they started hacking away at the KDAB office. Read on to learn about how this went and the plans the developers have for KOffice 2 and the coming weekend!
iTWire: Whenever I hear the words Sun Microsystems and open source mentioned together I can't help but laugh. The latest bit of spiel which juxtaposes these words comes from a credentialled person - but the words are extremely tired.
Lockergnome: If I was setting up a new, or fairly new, computer with Linux I’d probably go with PCLinuxOS, Kubuntu or Ubuntu (they’re all really nice) and be happy as a lark but my first Linux computer was old and well used.
Phoronix: While late, the first Gentoo release of the year is now available for download. Gentoo 2007.0 features a rewritten LiveCD installer, updated packages, GNOME 2.16.2, and other improvements over Gentoo Linux 2006.
Matt Asay: In case you thought that Microsoft was winning in the war against open source, you just need to read Bill HIlf's quotes to see that Microsoft clearly feels that it's losing. Big time.
Only Ubuntu: Automatic LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP) In about 15 minutes, the time it takes to install Ubuntu Feisty Server Edition, you can have a LAMP server up and ready to go. This feature, exclusive to Ubuntu Server Edition, is available at the time of installation.

FOSSwire: Regarding my previous post criticizing Automatix2, I agreed to install Automatix2 on my system and see the effects. I’m going to be updating this post continuously as it installs.
ComputerWorld: The New Zealand Open Source Society is opposing those parts of the Copyright Amendment Bill that would make it illegal to circumvent technological protection of copyright.
tech.blorge.com: Based on some comments from my previous posts about Ubuntu, I decided I would in fact give it a try but if you are looking for a glamorous review of Ubuntu, this is not going to be it. I have nothing good to say about the operating system.
A Blog Of Gentoo: The fact of installing Linux OS is not, unfortunately, considered a crime under the Russian law. Linux on computer is the same as pornography.
polishlinux: In this tutorial we are going to show how to prepare a Neon inscription in GIMP (based on this example). The article is meant for beginners, but you should know at least the basics of using GIMP in order to succeed.
opensourcelearning.info: Rhythmbox is the default music player for Ubuntu/GNOME and Amarok for KDE. Both are ‘everything and the kitchen sink’ style programs and both are featured in our upcoming book. Why not revive the GNOME vs KDE debate a bit and compare these two programs.
About.com: Here are some of the advantages of Linux that are often cited when comparing Linux with other operating systems: (1) Low cost; (2) Stability; (3) Performance; (4) Network friendlyness; (5) Flexibility; (6) Compatibility; (7) Choice; (8 ) Fast and easy installations; (9) Multitasking; (10) Open source.
blogbeebe: Well, that lasted what, a whole week (seven complete days)? I went completely over to Ubuntu 7.04 on europa and discovered that there were enough rough edges and sharp corners that I grew to miss Suse's capabilities and stability.
kernelTRAP: "Ok, the merge window has closed, and 2.6.22-rc1 is out there," Linus Torvalds announced on the Linux Kernel Mailing List. He noted that there were a large number of changes, "almost seven thousand files changed, and that's not double-counting the files that got moved around."
All about Linux: Visit any random website and chances are the website expects your machine to have a set of fonts which have become the de-facto standard on the Internet. The fonts being Arial, Times New Roman, Courier New and so on. Microsoft does not licence third parties to redistribute these fonts - a reason why you don't find these commonly used popular fonts installed in Linux by default. This is going to change once and for all.
Debian Package of the Day: MPEG is the JPEG of the video world. It is a format that plays everywhere, and has built-in lossy compression. Unfortunately, that means that, also like a JPEG, if you open and edit an MPEG you will lose more and more quality with each save. Worse, since video files tend to be large, many people will take MPEG compression as far as it will go, creating files that look yucky to start with.
Motho ke motho ka botho: Part of the difficulty in troubleshooting a video driver issue is that after two or three unsuccessful tries, settings are changed and it’s hard to tell if new problems have cropped up as a result. Too many tweaks and changes, added and removed packages, installed and uninstalled drivers and it’s a challenge to make sure the old changes you’ve made aren’t keeping the new ones from taking effect.
