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.
iTWire: Microsoft and flash memory maker SanDisk have teamed up to develop new portable USB flash drives that can be automatically loaded with their desktop software applications and personal settings, as well as data.
Beranger: I do not intend to be rude and inconsiderate for the hard work of an entire team, but if KDE 4.0 will release end-October, it will be a big stain on the image of the KDE project. The current 3.90.1 is still what I would call "a proof of concept", for not saying it's a joke.
/dev/loki: Today we had our first/kick-off IRC meeting about the "openSUSE Software Portal / Application Manager" project.
Complicated Mind: Ubuntu Studio is a multimedia editing/creation flavour of Ubuntu. It’s built for the GNU/Linux audio, video, and graphic enthusiast or professional. Because I don’t do audio, video and graphic editing or creation, so I didn’t install Ubuntu Studio. But from the screenshot, I really like the theme that is used by Ubuntu Studio. So I decide to install the theme into my Feisty Fawn.
Linux Online: Lazarus is a RAD tool, or Rapid Application Development tool that runs on the three major platforms (Linux, Windows and Mac OS). It is very similar to Delphi, a popular RAD developed by Borland. And like Delphi, it uses a variant of Pascal for its underlying programming language. In Lazarus' case, it's Free Pascal.
the star: NOVELL Inc has signed a memorandum of understanding with seven universities and institutes of higher learning to offer Open Source and Linux training as part of their information technology curriculum.
Seopher: Pardus is a relatively unknown release funded and developed by the Scientific and Technological Research Council of Turkey. It has a range of unique features and clearly has converted some fans on basis I'm sitting here playing with it because readers recommended it. So let's see what this KDE release can do.
wcmessenger.com: Some students in the Northwest school district don’t have computers at home, but administrators hope that will change soon.
Linux In Novell’s East Region: Wow, sometimes you think you’re really tied into a product and who’s using it and where, but even I was surprised at the amount of people and institutions deploying, using and enhancing OpenOffice.org. The vast majority are kind enough to take the time to document their experiences so others can take advantage of those findings.
Matt Asay: I've written once on this topic before, but never with Red Hat's assistance. But yesterday I got to present the Red Hat subscription model with two members of Red Hat's legal team. And all throughout the Summit I had open source entrepreneurs asking me for clarification on just how the model works.
