sheehantu: After reading Mohammad’s blog post about Google Desktop, I thought I’d take it for a spin since I’m a GDS fan when I’m on XP. Though I’ve only been using it for two days, I soon realized that I am going back to Tracker. Here’s why:
element14: Suppose you need to do a batch operation on a large set of pictures? Although Gimp is an extremely powerful tool for image editing and processing, it is still very time consuming to do a series of tasks on a large list of images in GIMP without wasting a lot of time.
The Jem Report: The GNU General Public License version 3 is unleashed to the world today, ready and willing to conquer perceived problems with the legal system in the U.S. and other countries. The FSF tells us that the new restrictions in the GPLv3, on patents, patent licensing, and hardware capabilities, are there to make us more free.
Raiden's Realm: Xandros is a distribution of Linux descended from Debian and built on the Debian framework. Unlike Debian though, Xandros is built more with a profiteering mindset, a philosophy that has slowly alienated it from the Linux community, more so lately after their announced affiliation with Microsoft.
kaki5: If network manager does not solve the problem, the first step should be to see which driver your wireless card needs. Do a search for your card on Google and in the Ubuntu Forums to find out which driver you need. Many of the drivers are already included in Ubuntu, but some newer drivers may not be present.
After 18 months of revision, the Free Software Foundation has released version 3 of the General Public License (GPL).

Penguin Pete: Let's make one thing perfectly clear: Microsoft wants Linux dead. Four words that tell you all you need to know about how Microsoft and Linux relate. Microsoft wants Linux dead. Write it down.
InformIT: To keep your system in optimum shape, you need to be able to monitor it closely. Ubuntu provides a wealth of utilities designed to give you as little or as much feedback as you want. In this sample chapter, Paul and Andrew Hudson look at some of the basic monitoring tools and cover some tactics designed to keep your system up longer.
linuxworld: SAN FRANCISCO – Sun CEO Jonathan Schwartz showed up Thursday evening at the Burton Group Catalyst Conference and declared he would not answer questions about the GNU general public license version 3, but he did disclose his lifelong fantasy concerning open source licensing.
ZDNet: According to a statement, the Kerala government has identified free and open-source software (FOSS) as a major strategic component in its efforts to build an inclusive information society.
internetnews.com: How does an enterprise ensure that its staff has the skills necessary for Linux? One answer is skills certification. That's where the Linux Professional Institute (LPI) comes in. LPI, founded in 1999, is a non-profit entity that runs a core Linux certification program called the LPIC (Linux Professional Institute Certification), which is offered around the globe.
developerworks: People who are new to Linux® are often confused by the large number of distributions to choose from. The good news is that you can safely ignore most of them. This article helps you choose a distribution for getting started with your Linux exploration—and helps you understand just what it is you've just chosen.
vnunet: Linux firm SuSE has fixed a flaw in the OpenOffice.org suite of programs more than two weeks after it was discovered.
Forbes: We now know what happens when big hairy software coders work with big hairy lawyers. The result, understandably, is anything but slick. Meet GPLv3, the free software movement's latest legal tool to keep their code from being fenced in. At least its author, Richard Stallman, has pluck.
When reading a hint on the website of LinuxFromScratch I discovered the special capabilities of unionfs, specially in combination with chroot. Later I read a HowTo on a wikiwebsite of Gentoo, about entering a chrooted home directory when using a special script as shell. Combining these two brings me to using a chrooted environment, which you enter when logging in as a special user. This environment is an exact copy (mirror) of the system you are working on.
