revilinux.org: Ark Linux is a distribution mainly aimed towards desktop use. Two versions are available for download, Ark Linux Home which is a cd for a complete linux desktop and Ark Linux Live, a bootable CD that will launch Ark Linux without the need to install it.
ruminations: PC-BSD is based on FreeBSD 6.2 but promises a more enduser-friendly experience. It was bought by iXsystems in October 2006. FreeBSD has it’s own ports and packages system to install, manage and remove software.
Raiden's Realm: Granular Linux is one of those young distributions you get your hands on, expecting to find a project that's boring, incomplete or just downright painful to use. Very few new distributions are true gems. Granular is in every way a proper fork of PcLinuxOS (PCLOS) and goes a step farther by providing a number of unique elements that sets it apart.
ExtremeTech: I've been using Linux (and its cousin, FreeBSD) for ten years, almost exclusively for black-box server appliances. In the last year, I was turned onto Linux live CDs and it's as if I've discovered PCs all over again. Why not consider a Linux distro, which starts out lean-and-mean and can be easily changed and adapted to suit your specific needs and tastes?
polishlinux: Linux is not a free version of Windows. The differences between them are so fundamental that drawing a comparison between them is nearly impossible. There are so many moot points that they could make up a very long list.
watchingthenet: On Ubuntu, many tools and utilities exists to check and monitor system performance. But for Windows users making the switch to Ubuntu, the equivalent to Windows Task Manager is System Monitor which provides a graphical over-view of processes, CPU, memory, and network utilization.
CNN: The Linux penguin is finally marching onto more desktops. Some of the biggest names in computing are pushing harder for the Linux open-source operating system as an option for desktop PCs.
WSJ: The Wall Street Journal Online invited Walter Bender, president of the One Laptop effort and former director of MIT's Media Lab, to discuss the program with eMachines co-founder Stephen Dukker, whose start-up company sells technology for low-cost computer labs.
technocrat: Bruce Perens will speak at the U.C. Berkeley campus on September 17, 4 to 5 PM. Admission is free.
ITtoolbox blogs: There is a figure that I heard or read on the internet somewhere. I can't remember exactly where so please don't rake me over the coals over it. That figure is that it takes one administrator for every fifty windows machines but for every two hundred Linux machines only one administrator is needed.
Gaming giant Tattersalls has decided to dump four Linux operating systems in favour of a Microsoft counterpart across its Maxgaming business.
phoronix: For months now Linux users have been battered with driver releases that have really equated to be nothing more than maintenance releases. These releases have just fixed a small number of bugs and in some cases, the driver did more harm than good. The AMD fglrx 8.41 driver features a brand new underlying code-base that has been under development for well over a year.
DPotD: Everybody must know the feeling – you installed this great program the other day and now you want to run it. You remember the name, but where in the world it is in the menu? Under System? Under Utilities or even Settings to name but a few options? And so the annoying search starts.
freesoftware mag: Screenshots. Where would the internet be without them? Sometimes you just need to take screenshots quick and dirty without the overheads (especially if you are using a lightweight windows manager on a relatively low-spec machine). If that's your case, you can use “Scrot”.
linuxelectrons: Microsoft Corp. has released Silverlight™ 1.0, a cross-browser, cross-platform plug-in for delivering richer user experiences on the Web. In addition, Microsoft will work with Novell Inc. to deliver Silverlight support for Linux, called Moonlight, and based on the project started on mono-project.com.
computerworld: Motor giant BMW will migrate about a third of its fleet of proprietary Unix servers to commodity Intel machines with Linux and Windows to take on the workloads.
kmandla.wordpress: So here’s the rundown on a full Ubuntu 7.04+ installation on the ugly little Sotec laptop. This is a K6-2 at 450Mhz, with 256Mb of PC100 (I think), and a 40Gb 5400rpm Hitachi hard drive. Network is via Xircom Realport RBEM56G-100 wired PCMCIA adapter.
chris pirillo: After DBAN finished running on the computer I am giving away, I threw in an Ubuntu disc, and ten minutes later had a fully baked Operating System on the computer.
LinuxDevices: Palm has canceled the Linux-based Foleo mobile companion, CEO Ed Colligan announced today on the company's blog. Colligan said the move would cost the company $10 million in earnings, but allow it to focus on a single Linux smartphone development platform going forward.
kernelTRAP: Discussion continues on the Linux Kernel mailing list about the legality and morality of re-licensing BSD/GPL dual-licensed code under only the GPL. Alan Cox replied to Theo de Raadt's comments suggesting he was encouraging people to break the law, "re-read my email and then apologize."
