jan-krueger.net: I am always happy to find alternative applications of creativity. Today’s focus is on Acer or, more specifically, on Acer’s so-called Linux notebooks. They come with Linux pre-installed. So that’s fine for basic usage, even if it takes a little getting used to for the more Windows- savvy people. Right?
ruminations: With the basics of the pkg_add system in my grasp it was time to get some work done. I have a presentation later this week and I use mindmaps to set up the structure. Sad to say there still is no serious replacement for MindManager (which also doesn’t allow itself to run under Wine), so I settled for Freemind.
Robin's Hood: I have been using my Zonbu for a couple of weeks now so it is time for a report. I love it. It appeals to 'green' me, and 'annoyed by whining fans' me. I am glad I bought it.
infoworld blogs: Our parent site InfoWorld has just announced it's 36 winners for this year's Best of Open Source Awards.
kernelTRAP: Hua Zhong reported an NFS regression in 2.6.23-rc4 as compared to 2.6.22, "[upgrading] causes several autofs mounts to fail silently - they just [do] not appear when they should."
linux.com: A download manager can save you time if you download a lot of large files from the Internet, but it can be annoying to have to grab a link from your browser and pass it to the download manager manually. With the FlashGot extension for Firefox, you no longer have to.

kdedevelopers.org: Today I experienced two moments of bewilderment, the second one mixed with dismay. At first, when I googled for something unrelated, on one of the returns I saw a forum post where someone said "Icaza himself says that OOXML is superb".
iTWire: There's a month to go before the next Ubuntu release, 7.10 aka Gutsy Gibbon, hits the download servers. A September 4 daily build shows a number of improvements over the 7.04 release which was named Feisty Fawn.
eetimes.com: Implementing electronics design functionality using a combination of hardware blocks and software modules based on advanced, multiprocessor platforms is now commonplace. To illustrate these issues and their resolution, we will describe a relatively simple processor platform and attempt to boot up an operating system on it using an emulation system.
serverwatch: FreeBSD users sometimes gaze quizzically at Linux users and wonder why they do everything the hard way. Although FreeBSD and Linux are close cousins with a considerable number of similarities under the hood, some major differences separate them.
legitreviews.com: Many of you probably remember our Intel V8 preview that showed some serious processing power. Instead of just letting a system like this collect dust, we have put this system to good use running Folding @ Home for Team 38296. We set out to see just how many points per day we could get with such a beast using various configurations featuring the Linux SMP client, Windows SMP client, ATI GPU Client, and VMWare.
computerworlduk: The Liberal Democrats have hit out at the government’s failure to use more open source software, three years after it pledged to avoid “lock-in” to proprietary systems.
daveshields.wordpress.com: It’s not that hard to build a computer these days. It is fun and you can usually build one for less cost than buying one from a manufacturer or dealer. It can also be a educational experience. Part of the savings comes from not having to pay the “Windows tax.”

daniweb: Qualcomm stopped selling Eudora email client back in May and handed over the codebase to the open source community. The Beta 1.0 release is now available for download under the new name of Penelope. Surprising because just a couple of months ago the Mozilla CEO was talking up Firefox and talking down Thunderbird, the original Mozilla email client.
Red Hat PR: Red Hat today announced that Spanair, one of the largest air carriers in Spain, has selected Red Hat Enterprise Linux as the platform of choice for its recent IT initiatives. With Red Hat solutions, Spanair is experiencing increased performance and cost reduction.

cnet: IBM said on Monday that it will join the OpenOffice.org project and pledged to further use the open-source software in its own products.
mitchelaneous.com: To continue from where I left off previously, my installation of Ubuntu’s Feisty Fawn (7.04) has been full of nothing but pleasant surprises. Granted, not all applications/software/games will work on Ubuntu….yet. But thanks to some clever people over at the Wine project, that is soon to be a thing of the past.
