MaximumPC: Whether you're a seasoned Linux user or a newb who's just switched from Windows, getting your Linux experience to run just the way you want it can be a time-consuming chore. But with the GNOME Configuration Editor, you can tweak everything through a single, easy-to-use menu.

wolfger.wordpress: Ubuntu mounts devices with something called UUID. I’d never heard of it before, but it “just worked”, so I left it alone. It wasn’t a problem. Until I installed Gutsy Tribe 5 on my other partition. Gutsy decided that it needed to format my swap partition for some odd reason. Formatting it, apparently, gives it a new UUID.

iTWire: This month, the GNOME project - one of two main choices when it comes to desktop environments for Linux - celebrates 10 years of existence. Is this just one more case of duplication in the FOSS arena? Did we need GNOME at all?
openoffice.org tips: I just started using feature this recently, for my LinuxWorld presentation. It's very nice. Anytime you can reference some text, rather than embedding it in the formatting, it's good.

Dana Blankenhorn: Instead of selling Windows for, say, $150, through an OEM, sell one year of it for $99. Require registration for updates, and then charge $75/year for maintenance, just like the anti-virals do.
tastic.brillig.org: This is my attempt to cut through the hype and uncertainty to find a storage subsystem that works. I compared XFS and EXT4 under Linux with ZFS under OpenSolaris.
CLICK: I downloaded and burned the Xubuntu Gutsy Herd 5 live CD and loaded it up. I realize that this is beta and not all the bugs are worked out, and with that criterion, things are working very well. But I'm left wondering "Why?"
FOSSwire: Flash is everywhere on the web nowadays. From YouTube (and the myriad of other video sites), to corporate websites, to online portfolios, a web experience without Flash Player installed isn’t really a complete web experience. For some time, the GNU Project has been working to build a free replacement for Flash Player.
DesktopLinux: Vista's been something of a flop. I know it. You know it. Even in Bill Gates' secret sanctum hidden underneath his mansion they know it. Businesses, in particular, aren't about to touch Vista for corporate desktops until they get SP1. Guess what? They're not going to be getting it anytime soon.

zdnet blogs: Novell’s partnership with Microsoft to resell SUSE has drawn fire from many quarters, but in the end the deal appears to have delivered the desired effect: Jump start Novell as a Linux player.
kernelTRAP: Ying Huang continues to work on his kexec-based hibernation patches. Currently only supporting the i386 architecture, Ying notes, "the setup of hibernation/restore is fairly complex. I will continue working on simplifying."
linuxworldexpo: It is with regret that we must announce that LinuxWorld Conference & Expo 2007 has been postponed until spring 2008. We hope to be in touch shortly with new dates.
c|net blogs: After my Monday-morning blog post reporting on some preliminary battery-life testing for the XO laptop from the One Laptop Per Child project, I was contacted by Jim Gettys, vice president software for OLPC.

linux-blog.org: For those of you who always thought PCLinuxOS and MythTV would go together...you’re quite right, they do fit well together...though there are a few bumps on the road. Hopefully, this how-to will help you along the way.
linux.com: Do-it-yourself distributions have made great strides since Linux from Scratch, or even rPath's rBuilder Online. One of the most elegant tools to emerge recently is Custom NimbleX, a PHP program that allows you to construct an ISO image in your browser and then download it.
kmandla.wordpress: My sudden defection from the dwindling Graveman fan club (is there anyone left there now?) set me to wondering what other applications I’m clinging to, that might not have any real merit to them. As best I can tell, all these are available in both Arch and Ubuntu.
phoronix: Back in 2006 there was no open-source R500 driver either. Over the past 16 months with R500 support in the fglrx driver, the features have continually improved with an AMD Catalyst Control Center for Linux and support for the newer R500 graphics cards.
