tech trouble?: There were some online services available now that can provide you Desktop like environment (some call it WebOS) through a web browser - with applications and storage spaces - that you can customize and access anytime from any computer and from any where in the world!
tipotheday.com: The GIMP. It sounds more like something you'd drag out of a dark box in your hidden underground lair than an image manipulation program -- and yet, someone, somewhere, thought it was a great name. It still secures first place on my list, but we'll move on to the more interesting ones now.

the Inquirer: IF ANYONE CAN TAKE ON MICROSOFT it's Google. Both companies make squillions out of doing not much at all, which is the key to having your share price sit on top of the roof.
opensourcelearning: Microsoft is on the march. Novell, Xandros, Linspire, hiring Tom Hanrahan straight from the Open Source Development Labs. There should be no doubt that Microsoft has a strategy to….. Yes, to do what to Linux?
There are several non-commercial methods to achieve roughly the same goal, and in this tutorial we use IMAP (more specifically, courier-imap) to convert all our emails from PST to the Maildir format.
linux.com: All modern operating systems are able to run many programs at the same time. For example, a typical Linux server might include a Web server, an email server, and probably a database service. Each of these programs runs as a separate process. What do you do if one of your services stops working? Here are some handy command-line tools for managing processes.
networkworld: Linux is entering its second phase of growth, which will be defined by better cooperation among developers, new licensing options, and a stronger operating system, according the leaders of the nonprofit Linux Foundation.
linux-watch: Believe it or not, on my way to the Linux Foundation Collaboration Summit at the Googolplex this week, I realized that I knew at least one more Linux distributor would form a partnership with Microsoft, and that the most likely one was Linspire. So, who's next?
FreeSoftware Mag: Here's the first cryptic crossword from Free Software Magazine. Most clues should lead you to words somehow associated with free software, but one or two "everyday" words have been slipped in to act as decoys.
