fluxam @ livejournal: Fedora 7 64-bit is how I'm posting this using the Scribefire/Performancing extension in Firefox 18.104.22.168 -- supposedly a 64-bit build, since I'm running the 64-bit Fedora. I was startled when I saw the option of loading into RAM when I booted off the 835 Mb DVD, and again surprised when the DVD was ejected after being read into RAM.
Black Phoebe: This evening I took the big plunge: I completely wiped Microsoft Windows XP off my 2003 Dell Inspiron 8200 laptop and made it an Ubuntu linux only machine. Goodbye Steve Ballmer and Bill Gates! Goodbye! Hello Feisty Fawn, Hello!
BusinessWeek: Crowds are not wise. Nor are they ignorant. The intelligence, or lack thereof, resides in those of us who are trying to capture their momentum. One fascinating point: once the crowds have been rallied to do their work, often a central authority possessing considerable talent is necessary to meld their efforts into a tangible product.
Penguin Pete: If you've not played Angband or its variants, sprint, don't waddle, to Thangorodrim and get thee thy new game. It is a stupendous implementation of the text-mode RPG game, with a highly authentic Lord-of-the-Rings flavor.
linux-gamers: A year in, the Alky Project has gone live under the cover of a company Falling Leaf Systems. Members of its Sapling Program will be able to get the wrappers for DirectX10 applications and users will be able to run Windows games intended on the Mac OS X on x86-based Macinteltoshes as well as Linux.
503 Service Unavailable: Yesterday I published version 1 of SlackRoll, a package or update manager for Slackware Linux. The end result is a Python script that reflecst my view on Slackware package management, with a uniform interface, which works fast.
Alex Faaborg: Firefox 3 is going to provide a wide range of improvements to performance, stability, and security, and it’s also going to present several new user facing features. Here is a quick recap.
Technocrat: The ship date that they gave me when I ordered my E520N was June 1st, but it actually shipped well before that and I got it 6/1 with regular shipping. The only deviation from the default configuration was that I didn't need a monitor.
It is my privilege to announce on behalf of the team members of the PCLinuxOS Magazine Project sponsored by MyPCLinuxOS.com, the June 2007 issue (#10) is available for download! Some highlights include KDE User Guide Part 3 & 4, Linux Mint - A Review, and Top 10 Firefox Extensions.
/home/liquidat: The KDE team announced that the 3.x branch is officially closed. There will be no further features or changes besides bug fixes. In the meantime, the KDE 4 module is frozen as well.
Myah OS 3 Tech Demo 2 is now available. This is the second release on the road to 3.0 Stable. This is still a development release but it should be fairly stable and have a well rounded selection of applications.
ubuntuforums: I received my XPS with Ubuntu today. The first thing I will say is that when the Fedex guy delivered it he asked if Dell was having some kind of liquidation sale because he has delivered more Dells today than ever before. He told me that he had already delivered five and there were eleven more on the truck.
Linux Devices: LearningSoft has used customized Linux-based handheld devices in an "assessment system" aimed at helping classroom school teachers create, administer, and score tests. Aimed primarily at grades three through eight, the "Indigo Learning System" uses Aeronix's $99 Zipit chat device running a custom software stack.
linux.com: As a way of thanking Fedora contributors and users for their support, Red Hat is offering discounts on its training programs, in some cases up to 25% off the normal price, said Fedora project leader Max Spevack in a message on fedora-announce-list announce Friday.
Linux Today: But what really floored me was Andy's youngest son, 10-year-old Greg, who chimed in the middle of the conversation and asked me (and I quote): “how hard is it to run Windows programs, like executables, on Linux?”
Seopher: I first visited Ubuntu Satanic Edition back in February and since then It's had some more work done on it. Ubuntu 7.04 Feisty Fawn was released and proved to be an excellent release, so Satanic Edition released an updated "Fiery Fawn". Here are some sexy screenshots.
All about Linux: The latest offering from Red Hat, Fedora ver 7.0 has been released. This time round, Fedora team has mearged the core packages with the Extra platform components which is why you see the title of this post to contain "Fedora 7" instead of "Fedora core 7".
