Conky is a highly customizable desktop monitor for X Window System. Think of it as KDE4 desktop widgets on crack. Conky, a fork of torsmo, has been around for a long time but new Linux users usually stay away from it because customizing it requires editing the scripted configuration file, which can be a bit intimidating for new users. Thankfully there is a whole group of conky users who share their beautifully customized conky setups, which can be installed (in most cases) by simply replacing the original conky config file, located at /etc/conky/conky.conf, with the customized one. Of course, if you want to customize your own conky setup, you might want to check out the official documentation and this excellent tutorial.
Here are 8 of the most beautiful Conky desktop monitor setups with links to download and instructions to install them:

Yesterday, lead maintainer of one of my favorite Linux distribution, Linux Mint, made a blog post on the official Linux Mint blog (the post was moved since and the original message heavily edited) asking people from Israel and sympathizers of their cause to not only stop giving donation to Linux Mint but also to stop using Linux Mint altogether. This is a very emotionally charged topic for many people, even if you don’t belong to that region or believe in any religion. As expected, he received both support and condemnation for his belief and for mixing politics with Linux, in the form of 300+ comments. In the process, with his – heat of the moment – single blog post he was able to divide a small group of otherwise united Linux users. Some decided to stop using Linux Mint while others decided to start using Linux Mint just because they agree with Clem’s views.
Here is a thought. Don’t mix politics with Linux. One of the main idea behind the open source (and Linux) philosophy is to unite people regardless of your race, beliefs, language, height, weight, color, location. When someone contributes to an open source projects, his political beliefs are not a prerequisite for his code to be accepted. No one should have to agree with the philosophy of the maintainer of a Linux distribution in order to use that distribution (that’s why we hate TOS).
Hopefully Clem will get his emotions in order and concentrate on improving an amazing distribution.
If you are like me, who spends most of his time online on the browser, Firefox can be a bit of a drag. It seems like it is going worse with each new release. Part of the problem is the number of memory hogging plugins you use but even on a fresh Firefox install it seems slower. Which is why I am anxiously waiting for Chrome to be fully ported to Linux.
Swiftweasel is a project that makes processor specific builds with the highest level of optimization as well as P.G.O (Profile Guided Optimization), which results in a faster and more responsive browsing experience. Specifically, my personal observation was that cold startup is significantly faster. You should be able to install all Firefox plugins and it has four plugins pre-installed for you: AdBlock Plus, XForms, User Agent Switcher and Quick Locale Switcher.
There is a similar project called SwiftFox, which doesn’t use PGO optimization and has proprietary license for its binaries, but it is easier to install. Definitely worth a look.
