OSWeekly: Nearly everyday, I have people e-mailing me with questions regarding my choice of the distributions that I highlight. But then it struck me: how are beginners or even those experienced users really supposed to be expected to make time to discover that next big Linux distribution love affair?
Phoronix: It's late, but it's finally here. This morning AMD will be formally announcing their long-awaited Radeon HD 2000 series, or perhaps better known as the ATI R600 GPU. his morning we have our technology preview of ATI/AMD's next generation GPUs along with what's in store for Linux and the R600 series support.
Beranger: I do not intend to be rude and inconsiderate for the hard work of an entire team, but if KDE 4.0 will release end-October, it will be a big stain on the image of the KDE project. The current 3.90.1 is still what I would call "a proof of concept", for not saying it's a joke.
Seopher: Pardus is a relatively unknown release funded and developed by the Scientific and Technological Research Council of Turkey. It has a range of unique features and clearly has converted some fans on basis I'm sitting here playing with it because readers recommended it. So let's see what this KDE release can do.
Ubuntu Studio 7.04 was finally released yesterday to what seemed like quite a bit of excitement. Ubuntu Studio is a version that focuses on multimedia creation and manipulation with what appears to me as an emphasis on music. At the time of this writing the official website seems to be experiencing a bit of trouble, perhaps due to the high traffic. In any case, sometimes the early bird does gets his worm and this time I was up early.
thepcspy: Because this is based off an alternative Ubuntu release, the only option to use Ubuntu Studio is by installing it using the text-based installer. I can't deny I was a little sad not to see a live version, especially considering that they had already cracked into a DVD-sized distribution. To me it would have made sense to go the whole hog and let people play with it before they install.
techgage.com: The latest Gentoo release is upon us and I am going to take a look at what's new. Promised updates include a revamped installer and the latest versions of your favorite applications.
PCBurn: The first five chapters contain prepwork to answer any questions you might have on the background of Apache as it relates to modules. All of the specifics involved in coding up Apache modules, the various functionality on offer and ways to access it, are the domain of the rest of the book.
the pcspy: I'll freely admit that it has been a long time since I've used a pure version of Gentoo. By a long time, I mean I used my friend's broadband to download the "stage 1" Gentoo V1.0 installer. Some five years later, I'm quite excited to revisit an old flame.
ITWeek: Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 5 is a fully-supported open-source server operating system that is suitable for a range of hardware and includes the latest Xen virtualisation tools.
