Monday, February 25 2008 @ 06:02 PM EST
Contributed by: sde

Plasma, ZUI, Oxygen, Dolphin, Okular, and Phonon are terms that seem more at home in a science experiment than in a Window Manager. But this is one science experiment that didn't go bad.

You're going to love KDE 4. The much-anticipated new version of KDE is finally here and it has arrived with a bang. Fitted with a new desktop shell, application launcher, artwork, and desktop widgets; the first word out of your mouth may very well be wow.

Fie on Photoshop: Image Editing in Linux Email Article To a Friend View Printable Version 
Thursday, January 24 2008 @ 03:14 PM EST
Contributed by: sde

It has been said (so many times that I'm ready to start twapping people) that the most important missing killer app for Linux is a free Adobe Photoshop clone. Photoshop is a mature graphics editor with hundreds of features and plugins, the de-facto industry standard, and it retails for over $600. So a free-beer Linux clone would be a lovely thing indeed.

Untangle Not a Tangle At All Email Article To a Friend View Printable Version 
Monday, January 14 2008 @ 10:06 AM EST
Contributed by: sde

One of the best uses for Linux is special-purpose, tightly managed distributions for a single purpose, and Untangle has created one of the most impressive applications of this principle. The Untangle Gateway bundles together a list of applications that even seasoned sysadmins couldn't install and effectively manage in a timely manner. We've been playing with the Untangle Network Gateway for a few months, and we must say: "well done."

Pyrolinux 1.0 Gives Off Little Heat Email Article To a Friend View Printable Version 
Monday, January 07 2008 @ 02:40 PM EST
Contributed by: sde

It's not every day you see the launch of a brand new Linux distribution, so when I heard that Pyrolinux 1.0 was released over Christmas, I thought I'd take a look. Pyrolinux is based on Linux Mint, which is itself a modified version of Ubuntu, so I suppose the term "new distribution" only loosely applies here.
