Gnome And KDE Might Collaborate Into Creating A FLOSS Alternative To Dropbox

,----[ Quote ]
| There is an ongoing discussion on a Gnome 
| mailing list which points out that Gnome 
| and KDE might collaborate for a new 
| project: a FLOSS alternative to Dropbox.
| One might think: well, we have Ubuntu One - 
| but that's only for Ubuntu (even though 
| work is done to port it to other Linux 
| distributions too - or it was done at some 
| point) and also it's KDE integration is 
| still experimental (and not official as far 
| as I know). And finally: many will agree 
| that Ubuntu One is not the best 
| implementation of this great idea so there 
| is room for some competition. And also, the 
| Ubuntu One server is not open source (only 
| the client is) and it seems there are no 
| plans to open-source it.


March Xfce desktop

,----[ Quote ]
| Shook up my Xfce desktop a bit. I've always 
| been a fan of darker environments, 
| especially those with blue tones. This 
| one's mysterious and fantastic. I did keep 
| the same icon theme as last month, as I 
| don't have anything more suitable installed 
| at the moment. I'm still looking for 
| something a bit more suited to my current 
| setup.

Is Wikipedia's "Deletionism" Out of Control?

,----[ Quote ]
| Guarding against inaccurate content, spam, 
| biased material, and unverifiable entries 
| is admirable. The relentless pursuit of 
| deleting content because someone unfamiliar 
| with a topic decides that it's not 
| "notable" enough is not. The fact that this 
| continues to be a problem even for a 
| project like dwm demonstrates that 
| Wikipedia is still not working well. While 
| the site certainly provides a valuable 
| resource, some portion of its community is 
| ensuring that it is not as valuable as it 
| could be.



Window Maker Desktop: Lightweight Linux Minimalism

,----[ Quote ]
| Window Maker is a fast, lightweight window
| manager based as closely as possible on the
| look and feel of the NeXTStep interface.
| (You may be familiar with NeXTStep an
| ancestor of Mac OSX, although the look and
| feel has changed a fair bit between the
| two.)
