besttechie.net: I am mainly a Windows and OSX user - however, that does not stop from occasionally attempting to use Linux as a desktop operating system. I do use Linux to run all of my servers. So I install Ubuntu Hardy Heron (8.04) - the install is relatively quick and quite painless. Good so far.
Att Masay: After writing my rebuke of Sidux, I came across an excellent post on a similar topic. Ryan Davis writes a cogent attack on software's tendency to reinvent the wheel. While Ryan's critique lingers on open-source software, it's by no means limited to open source.

makeuseof.com: When we’re kids, we learn stories of the past from our grandparents, often involving their parents and grandparents. How many of you remember those stories? What about the names of the people involved? Those of you with your hands up, are you into genealogy? I’ve been working on it for a couple of years now, and I just love this program, GRAMPS.

Dana Blankenhorn: It has been amusing this Independence Day reading reaction to Microsoft’s Equipt announcement. The reaction has ranged from hope to anger, depending on the author’s attitude toward Microsoft. Rather than play either note I’d like to focus on the business model and the opportunities it offers open source.
junauza.com: There are plenty of high-quality Linux wallpapers that you can get on the web, but not that much for the good-old GNU (GNU's Not Unix). So, I decided to take some time to find and collect a few of my favorite GNU wallpapers in existence.
earthweb.com: KDE 4.1 is supposed to make everything right with the recently troubled desktop. Everyone agrees now that KDE 4.0 was a mistake. However, what the mistake was -- and whose -- is a matter of opinion.

I've always liked computer games. When I used Windows I liked to play games like Myst and Riven, but when I switched to Linux I had to be contented with first-person shooters. Fortunately, they do have a bit of puzzle intermixed with all the combat, but I still grow weary of gunfight after gunfight. That's why when I heard of Penumbra, I was quite excited. Penumbra Overture is a 3D first-person mystery puzzle game. It's a bit like the Quakes without the gunplay. Or perhaps it could be likened to Myst and Riven, but lots more frightening.
itwire.com: Just a day or so after Acer’s Aspire One goes on sale in Australia comes news that the Asus Eee PC 904 will shortly go on sale in the UK, muddying the waters over which is the best value ‘netbook’ to buy.
trombonechamp.wordpress: I needed a good way to explain software freedom to people who have little to no computer experience (possibly parents or grandparents, kids, stay-at-home moms/dads, etc.), so I created the following blog post. Many of these people could benefit from free software, but aren’t going to learn about it through mainstream media.
ibeentoubuntu.com: Deskbar is often associated with search and only search. Sure, you can search you files, search Yahoo!, search Del.icio.us, or even search for a word in a dictionary, but did you know that you could DO stuff, too?

my10sen.com: Ubuntu latest release, I must admit is a total kickass operating system. You got almost everything figure out for you. Pop in the cd answer some simple question and there you have it. Almost to perfection operating system with the cost of nothing. But not everything runs as you planned.
brajeshwar.com: Open source software has a lot of options for the business world, alongside the home user bandwagon. Apart from the other generic features, Open Source softwares at times have a greater degree of customization as compared to their proprietary counterparts.
blog.linuxoss.com: Never before in the history of computing have there been so many companies, users and developers united behind one project, specifically one that has seen so much commercial success.

vivapinkfloyd.blogspot: First, I must say that using CLI is not always faster, not necessarily. There are tasks which can be done faster and easier using some GUI application rather than typing a whole bunch of commands. But, nevertheless, command line is still very powerful and it's more appropriate to use it for certain tasks.
dawningvalley.com: Ubuntu is, according to DistroWatch, the #1 Linux distribution. That’s a huge feat in itself. However, once you realize that Ubuntu is only three and a half years old, the feat is much bigger. How did the Linux rookie beat out the nine-year-old Mandrake, the fourteen-year-old SUSE, or the fifteen-year-old Debian?
