I really dont see why distrowatch.org is reporting that PCLinuxOS is more popular, id think the worlds top search engine stats should be actively on Distrowatch.org instead of there pathetic rating system...
Here is some good information on learning how to modify/configure and tweak Boot Processes with a variety of tools...
Lenovo, the forth largest computer manufacturer in the world, is wondering what Linux distribution to support on their Thinkpad computers.
Personal Package Archives is Launchpad’s new beta feature that builds and hosts Ubuntu .deb packages in your very own apt repository.
Until now, Parallels has had problems compiling the the newest ubuntu kernels and now is working absolutely great on my ubuntu machine, i just ditched qemu, virtualbox, and vmware! Dont ditch yours just yet untill you have a feel of this Virtualization Solution that has suprised the hell out of me.
So far I have tried Windows XP, and PC-BSD and they both run much smoother on my box, it has new technology that takes full advantage of your hardware.

I am writing this guide as a concerned member of the Ubuntu Community. Security is a concern for us all and in welcoming new (and experienced) users to Ubuntu I would like to demystify the complexities of security that come with your new OS.
The Mythbuntu team is happy to announce the release of Mythbuntu Alpha 4. This release is also based on Gutsy and should be considered Alpha quality until final release. It is at a very usable stage, and sports bleeding edge packages.
IBM will join the OpenOffice.org community and contribute code and resources, the company announced today. IBM has been a major supporter of the Open Document Format (ODF) which originated at OpenOffice.org, but hadn't yet taken the plunge to help out with the development.

Mozilla Firefox is one of the most popular Web browsers around today. But what does the Mozilla team have in store for us along security lines? To find out, let’s take a look at the pre-release version of Firefox 3 (code-named Gran Paradiso 1.9 Alpha 7).
The latest Firefox 3 (code name Gran Paradiso) development release (nightly) includes the very important and expected ability to pause downloads and resume them across sessions, that is even after restarting Firefox.
Beagle support in Ubuntu has been less than stellar up until this point (across all releases), and unfortunately, the best that we can really hope for in the immediate future is acceptable.
Lenovo is choosing Linux distro for their laptops, vote for Ubuntu! More hardware vendors offer Ubuntu, better drivers and collaboration with Canonical to come.
I personally hate myspace due to the spam and lameness, facebook for me is a little better, but for those people with girlfriends that are nagging, "why did you change my operating system, I need myspace IM" blah blah blah... Here it is, a reverse engineering hack for myspace IM...
Yes, you read that right. The Ubuntu 7.10 Tribe 6 testing release is not really a release. It was decided to use it as a bug fixing milestone instead.
I was searching the web for a fix for this fuq'd up problem about Comcast and Universities limiting connections with Sandvine. I have many reasons to believe qwest and other internet service providers are going to start limiting your torrent connections which is bullshit. Bittorrent is indeed hard on ISP's with thousands of syn/ack and tcp connection to and from your computer. I have read BANDWIDTH CHALLENGE TO PUSH LIMITS OF TECHNOLOGY and it seems bandwidth is surpassing technology and ISP's need to upgrade, but anyways who's fault is that? Not ours, screw them!

I’m Live Blogging my first attempt at the newest version of Ubuntu , version 7.04. Let me get this out of the way first - I am a hard-core Windows fan. Say what you want about Microsoft, it powers the world. I can use any hardware, play any game and use nearly any software ever written. I can do it securely, and with little frustration. Every attempt I have ever made at using Linux has left me disappointed. I am a geek, but I do not relish spending 3 days to get a wireless card working when I can do it in 5 minutes in Windows. There, is that enough of a disclaimer? OK then here we go.
