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”.

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."
mypclinuxos.com: It looks as though I’ll be shutting down MyPCLinuxOS.com. The handoff of reigns is taking too long and the # of visitors here to the forum has been steadily declining since my announcement of leaving.
linux.com: What springs to your mind upon hearing the words "Tahiti" of "Fiji"? White sandy beaches? Spectacular sunsets? Blue lagoons with colorful marine life? While natural beauty is indeed one of the most attractive aspects of the South Pacific, you might be surprised to learn that on some of these paradise islands there are active Linux user communities and even officially registered Linux user groups (LUG). New Caledonia, which I had the pleasure to visit last month, is one such place.
