CyberOrg: I am happy to announce that i18n infrastructure is ready and we can now translate compiz-fusion plugins and ccsm. We would be creating a team of translators, with one member per lingua in charge of keeping translations up-to-date.
International Herald Tribune: As the open-source movement completes its first decade, the fast-growing industry is at a crossroads, experts say, having advanced from nerdy novelty to recognized market niche while attracting the double-edged attention of its biggest rivals.
LoCo About Ubuntu!: I have switched my computer back over to Windows XP for a spin with the Ubuntu .exe installer, Wubi (Windows Ubuntu Based Installer). Wubi installs a fully functioning Ubuntu installation in your computer inside your Windows installation. Think of it as a virtual hard drive in your existing C:/ drive.
SiBlog: So last week I bought a Western Digital 160 GB external hard drive specifically to run a version of Linux on it. I have used Red Hat in the past but decided to go with Ubuntu and the Feisty Fawn release this time.
zdnet blogs: Flock has released a preview of a major update to its social web browser. As I noted in a recent post when Flock first launched, timed perfectly to coincide with a wave of web 2.0 hype, it seemed like a fresh and bold attempt to make a web browser that truly embraced the ’social web’.
techworld: Open-source developer Parallels finally released the source code for the Wine software used by Parallels Desktop 3.0 on Monday - but only after weeks of prodding by Wine developers and negative publicity on the IT forum Slashdot.
c|net blogs: The debate over free software is full of phrases like "free as in beer" and "free as in speech." To these, Stallman added the self-contradictory "free as in freedom"-- the kind of freedom one has when one's work must be carefully excluded from other people's projects.
linux.com: Last month, Nero released version 3.0 of Nero Linux. Since we tested version 2.1 last year, the software has come a long way. Nero Linux 3 supports not just CD and DVD burning but claims to be the first Linux application to support Blue-Ray and HD DVD recorders as well.
the how-to-geek: If you are a Firefox power user like I am, then you probably have dozens of tabs open all the time. After trying a number of different options, I've finally settled on using multiple rows of tabs as the best option.
CBR: The level of funding in free and open source-related vendors rose over 33% in the second quarter compared to the same period last year, following a decline in the first quarter.
techworld: A survey this spring of more than 400 developers and IT managers in North America found that the number of developers targeting Windows for their applications declined 12 percent from a year ago.
This tutorial shows how you can install and use Beryl or Compiz Fusion on a Fedora 7 desktop (the system must have a 3D-capable graphics card). With both Beryl and Compiz Fusion, you can make your desktop use beautiful 3D effects like wobbly windows or a desktop cube.
iTWire: There are many good reasons to be concerned about security and privacy online. For example, Internet banking can be at risk if there is any possibility of maliocious software on your computer's hard drive. Banks even expressly warn that before using their systems you should ensure you have taken steps to ensure your personal security.
ittoolbox blogs: The linux file system to those who are familiar with it is quite sensible and logical in its organisation. If you are familiar with the deep and dark secrets you will find many things that will surprise you and make you go aaah. One of those is the /proc directory.
mozillazine: Gran Paradiso Alpha 6 is now available for testing. New features in this development milestone of Mozilla Firefox 3 include an upgraded SQLite engine, improved cookie performance, support for site-specific text size preference and various Gecko 1.9 bug fixes.
Josh Saddler: Hey again. Back with part 3 of the Distribution Checklist series. This series poses a number of smart questions to consider when examining distributions -- "Which one is right for me?" For the third and final part, I'll look at the distribution's "identity," or meta-questions about the distribution, its history, its users & developers, and so on.
kernelTRAP: Linux creator Linus Torvalds released the 2.6.22-rc7 kernel saying, "it's hopefully (almost certainly) the last -rc before the final 2.6.22 release, and we should be in pretty good shape."
opensourcelearning: The Jem Report even claims that GPL 3 could be the end of GNU. Steven J. Vaughan-Nichols predicts an even worse fate for the GPL v3: to be ignored by most. This last statement kind of got my attention and I simply disagree with it.
The July 2007 issue of Linux Gazette is online and ready to peruse. Highlights include A Router With Just One Ethernet Port, Setting up an Encrypted Debian System, and Custom Hobbit Monitoring Using SNMP.
red hat mag: In Red Hat® Enterprise Linux® 4, tar could not handle the extra information stored in ext2 and ext3 file systems called Extended Attributes (EAs or xattrs). This is a potential problem for backups, because SELinux and ACLs use these Extended Attributes.
