The People Behind KDE series takes a temporary break, as we talk to students who are working on KDE as part of the Google Summer of Code 2007 - in the first of four interview articles, meet Aleix Pol Gonzàlez, Piyush Verma, Mike Arthur and Nick Shaforostoff!
mozillalinks: As expected, a seventh alpha version of Firefox 3 has been released and while it brings some visible changes, most of the improvements are still happening in the background, just like in previous alphas. Let's start.
ZDNet blogs: I can’t possibly profess to know what the pros and cons are of pushing hardware device drivers into the hypervisors that support virtualization technologies like those from XEN and VMware. But it’s clear from a recent thread over at the Linux Foundation that there’s some disagreement amongst experts (including Linus Torvalds himself) as to whether it makes sense or not.
watchingthenet: If you manage a Blog on Wordpress than I'm sure there have been a few times you attempted to log on, only to completely blank out and forget your password. Or maybe you just changed your password and never wrote it down or saved it.
TALL blog: I want to re-install my work PC - get rid of Windows and install Ubuntu. Here’s why…
linux.com: The Open Business Foundation (OBF) operates on two premises: that the open source development community makes good business sense, and that small businesses can be more successful if they band together with each other to share resources of all kinds.
kernelTRAP: A recent patch posted to the lkml aimed to make it possible to use both kdb and kdump at the same time, and instead led to an interesting discussion about RAS (Reliability, Availability, and Serviceability) tools.
arstechnica: This week Ghostscript, an open source postscript processor, released version 8.6.0. Ghostscript releases are not normally newsworthy since they are frequent and incremental, but this release is special.
desktoplinux: In an unusual move, Dell is asking its users what they want Dell CTO Kevin Kettler to talk about at next week's LinuxWorld trade show at San Francisco's Moscone Center.
MaximumPC: It used to be that only paranoids cared a whit about shredding their data—or their office paperwork, for that matter. But these days, there really are people out there just waiting for you to slip up and expose your private data. Fortunately, if you're running Linux, deleting sensitive information is fast and easy with the 'shred' utility.
linux.com: If there's one thing the world doesn't lack for, besides bad movie sequels and dishonest politicians, it's collaboration software. Good collaboration software that's open source, on the other hand, is a rare thing indeed.
dot.kde.org: A few quickies again this week: the 4th Trophées du Libre (International Free Software Awards) contest is open. Also new this week: Nikolaj Hald Nielsen has announced that he is being hired full time to work on Amarok, courtesy of the Magnatune music store.
shift+backspace: Yesterday, the first release pre-release version of MEPISSimplyMEPIS 7.0 was announced. This release marks the end of a great Ubuntu-based distribution, but the beginning of a spectacular distribution based on Debian.
zdnet blogs: On the surface a two-month delay in Red Hat’s release of Global Desktop Linux is no big deal. The aim of the project is not just to deliver an operating system, but a complete environment, including applications, aimed at the mass market.
After four months of hard work we are proud to announce a new release of the user manual for GIMP 2.2 with new content, spelling and grammar fixes, and new tutorials from gimp.org.
Raiden's Realm: SuperGamerVL (aka SuperGamer3) is the next generation in Linux gaming live dvd's that aims to bring the fun of Linux gaming to a PC near you and help Linux geeks everywhere demonstrate to their friends that Linux really is fun and can be used for gaming.
tuxwatch: Linux has come a long way in the past two years. Today much of what needs to be done on a Linux machine can be done using a mouse and a little pointing and clicking. Occasionally, however, there are things that still require a little under-the-hood tinkering, where a rudimentary understanding of the command line comes in handy.
Dana Blankenhorn: Linuxworld hits San Francisco next week with 11,000 attendees. The media is filled with stories about the “mainstreaming” of open source. Maybe. I’m more worried about open source Comdexifying, about Comdexification if you will.
ZDNet: There's been much fanfare about Linux replacing Windows on desktops but we've yet to see any major adoptions take place. This may have something to do with the fact that none of the major PC manufacturers have offered Linux as a pre-installed option.
LinuxWorld: As more than 11,000 attendees prepare to converge on San Francisco for the LinuxWorld Conference & Expo next week, one industry analyst says customers are evaluating open-source software the same way they evaluate proprietary software: It has to be priced right and work well.
