linuxjournal.com: In this article, I conclude my status report on the development of some of the most active notation software projects for Linux.
silentcoder.co.za: Some packages have excruciatingly complex build systems, that are hard to master, harder to package… and in short, the bane of a distribution developer’s existence. Herewith, my top list of packages with the most terribly stupid build system:
omegamormegil.wordpress: Abiword has just become my new favorite word processor. It’s always been nice for being so quick and low on resources, but the 2.6 release of Abiword has added two new features which have pushed it over the top for me.
tirania.org: Since I have been thinking about building a Silverlight-based version of the Midnight Commander (OH NOES!) I figured I should share some thoughts that I had on this matter.
tuxradar.com: Oracle has announced it is purchasing Sun Microsystems for just over $7 billion. The official word from Oracle is that the purchase gives it two key assets - Java and Solaris - but open sourcerers will understandably be more interested in MySQL and OpenOffice.org.
fosswire.com: Backing up generally isn’t a fun activity, but always proves to be worth it when that disaster you are not expecting happens.
workswithu.com: I’ve used Evolution, the default email client in Ubuntu, for a couple of years to manage numerous mail accounts. In general, I think it’s a great application. But as with everything in life, there’s always room for improvement.
go2linux.org: VoIP has improved a lot since its first days, today a lot of multinational business are using it as a reliable way to keep stay in touch.
thelinuxcauldron.wordpress: After a long time, I said to myself, can I lose that bottom panel? I really wanted something semi-flashy that had function, giving me access to my favorite shortcuts.
xfce.org: The first bugfix-release of xfce 4.6 has been released. We have been able to fix several issues during the past few weeks.
