Linux Today: As I attended the sessions at the Open Source Business Conference this week, the rhetoric was very strong--far stranger than anything leveled at The SCO Group when they started their happy litigation hunt years ago. By leveling an allegation on 235 patents that Linux supposedly infringes upon, Microsoft has apparently engendered a reaction in the free and open source software communities the likes of which I personally have never seen.
Phoronix: The BeleniX LiveCD that is based off of OpenSolaris with GNU applications has reached version 0.6 after some setbacks. While this release is coming out later than expected, it is based upon OpenSolaris Build 60, uses X.Org 7.2, features Compiz 0.5 for Xfce and KDE.
LinuxWorld: Novell on Friday published redacted versions of the three agreements it signed with Microsoft in its annual 10K filings to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, providing the public with its first detailed look into a deal that some see as critical to the future of Linux. The 10K filing had been delayed by an internal stock options review at Novell, which was concluded Wednesday.
intranetjournal: Even for the most seasoned computer user, taking the leap to open source can prove to be a bit daunting. But once you have a solid base of core applications, I believe most people will find the switch is not nearly as painful as they imagined. Here’s a list of open source applications that I feel are a “must have” for anyone interested in exploring open source software alternatives:
linux devcenter: The third release of Xubuntu, the variant of Ubuntu with the lightweight Xfce desktop, appeared last month. Feisty Fawn (version 7.04) uses the final gold code of Xfce 4.4.0 rather than the release candidates in Edgy Eft (version 6.10) and Dapper Drake (version 6.06). I had very positive experiences with both Edgy and Dapper so I had very high expectations for Xubuntu Feisty Fawn.
kernelTRAP: In a recent lkml thread the concept of dumping an image of the kernel's memory to swap when the kernel hits a bug was discussed. Linus Torvalds pointed out that such a feature wasn't useful to an operating system like Linux that can ran on such a diverse assortment of computers.
the how-to geek: You’ve got a production database server, and you can’t enable query logging… so how do you see the queries being executed against the database?
Software in Review: Ubuntu Linux continues to show steady improvement with version 7.04, but there's still room for improvement. Despite the handful of shortcomings in 7.04, this is the best release Ubuntu's yet had. If they didn't before, commercial GNU/Linux vendors should now feel quite threatened by Ubuntu Linux.
techrepublic: Vincent Danen helps you get started using the Linux tool vnStat to monitor your bandwidth usage.
Information Week blog: It's always informative to look at our most heavily trafficked stories to see what topics you're most interested in. No, it's not a scientific survey, but it certainly provides pretty powerful anecdotal evidence of what technologists are currently buzzing about. And judging from our numbers, you're rather obsessed with Linux--Ubuntu Linux, to be precise.
Raiden's Realm: At some point in time, every new user to KDE will find themselves in need of of a way to access at least one, if not several different internet services. KDE comes with a built in selection of some of the most basic internet tools to allow you to do the things you need to do. Here's a short list.
Pimp Your Linux: One of the major things that people request here on Pimpyourlinux is for better fonts on Linux. I’ve done some research on the subject, and it is quite possible to make your Linux Desktop look great, even if you have a flat panel monitor.
rangit.com: Below are 8 addictive 3d games for linux users to fill their time with. These games are really good and some have won awards or have been featured on magazines. Most of it is cross platform and free. You don’t have to use ‘Wine’ to be able to play as they come with Linux installers.
Microsoft Watch: If Microsoft isn't the Evil Empire, what should be? It's the 30th anniversary of Star Wars and easy enough to cast Microsoft as destroyer of the Republic. But what if Microsoft were the Republic?
Linux.com: The lead developer of the Hugin panorama-stitching application, Pablo d'Angelo, has proposed a new open database for collecting camera lens information that could be used to correct systematic distortion in photographs.
Mozilla Links: Firefox has memory issues. It's undeniable. Keep Firefox for a few hours with some 15-20 tabs opened at a time, minding you own business and you will get Firefox to grab up to around 150MB. You may notice this or not depending on how much memory you have.
