I finally finished a little "how-to
" on installing Aterm
and using its transparency features. I started it a while ago and only got around to finishing it today.
Planet KDE has a lot of good information about Krita. Along with Beagle, Krita is another toy I am looking forward to playing with. Of course I like the GIMP, but there are some things I don't like and selection is always nice. There's still no release available, but you can get the source from CVS.
In today's episode of "As the GNOME Turns", Vic Volkerding has finally announced that he will no longer be distributing GNOME with Slackware. This has been in the works for a while, I remember reading about it when I was dabbling with Slackware. What little I know of Slack has always given me the impression that it is a "purists" distro. It makes sense to me that if the GNOME implementation can be maintained elsewhere and free up his time, then so be it.
I hate writing about Microsoft, but MS and the EU has agreed on a name for the version of XP with Media Player removed: "Windows XP Home Edition N" -- with "N" standing for "not with media player"...I guess the "Q" stands for "Quality"...
I remember seeing these a while ago, but hadn't read them until last night: A Manager's Guide to Supervising a Hacker and A Hacker's Guide to Surviving in a Corporate Environment. Both are well written and offer a lot of practical advice for both sides.
