linux.com: Most people lock their doors and windows, use a paper shredder to protect themselves from identity theft, and install antivirus software on their computers. Yet they routinely surf the Internet without giving a second thought to whether their browser is secure and their personal information safe.

thesun.co.uk: IT'S not often I get so excited about a gadget delivery that I keep my eyes peeled for the postman. But when I heard an ASUS EEE PC was on the way, I was desperate to get my hands on it and start tapping away.
networkworld.com: When the city of Madera, Calif., needed a new voice system, it turned to open source technology -- not just for the IP telephony but for an entire network-infrastructure overhaul and loads of other functions.
perkypants.org: As a result of some confusion (and sadly, some very active, ugly and offensive muck-raking) in various sections of the community recently, I thought it might be interesting to do a review of GNOME’s relationship with Novell and some of the people involved in that relationship.

raiden's realm: Welcome to part 5 of our Linux Media Player Roundup! Today we'll be going over several more media players for you to consider.
Dana Blankenhorn: Our Crave blog has compiled a list of the top 10 open source projects for consumers, and while their list covers 11 Web pages here’s the whole thing, Letterman-style.
budlite.blogspot: I've been a kde user for very long time, since from before version 3.0. I have been anticipating kde 4.0, the next major release since 3.0 I suppose. But it seems that is just its problem! Its too much of a major release to be pushing out in such a hurry.
readthisaloud.wordpress: Were you shocked as well when you found out that your Ubuntu (in my case Kubuntu Gutsy 7.10) wouldn’t playback DVD’s that you’ve LEGALLY purchased in shops or through Amazon?
computerworld: A new software development collaborative service for Ubuntu Linux is being launched today to give developers a consolidated arena to build code for Ubuntu on the desktop, server and for mobile applications.
itwire.com: A friend said to me recently that “Firefox is for the home, Internet Explorer is for the office.” His comments reflect commonly found stigma and fears that free and open source software – and Linux too – are not suitable for a business environment. Let me set the record straight.
justuber.com: Given the explosive arrival of Linux into the consumer desktop market, I thought it’d be interesting to check out the operating system at the heart of the best selling Walmart Linux PC. Let me introduce you to gOS.
justanothertechblog.blogspot: I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving! I know that I enjoyed the days off of school, and thankfully having nothing better to do than finally install the latest Ubuntu: 7.10 "Gutsy Gibbon." So onwards now, lets see how it fared:
informationweek.com: The creator of Linux is excited about solid-state drives, expects progress in graphics and wireless networking, and says the operating system is strong in virtualization despite his personal lack of interest in the area.
lightandmatter.com: It was time to buy my daughter a cheap Linux system to be used for schoolwork and playing flash games — well, mostly for playing flash games. I decided to buy the new Everex TC2502 Green gPC being sold at WalMart. Er, supposedly being sold at WalMart.
fosswire.com: Way back in June, Peter discussed KIO, KDE’s backend system that applications can use to read and write virtually anywhere. GNOME, with GnomeVFS, provides similar functionality, though admittedly it is lacking in several areas.
Jack Wallen: The day after Thanksgiving I was asked by my boss if I would be willing to go to his house and do something about his computer. The computer (a fairly nice piece of hardware) had come to a near stop. The machine was taking up to ten minutes to boot and the applications were practically unusable.
Matt Asay: It's been at least a week since the last bout of Microsoft FUD hit the wires, so I guess it was time for a new wave. Today's FUD comes from an article Microsoft released on how its security compares with that of Linux. It should come as no surprise that Windows comes off as the Second Coming while Linux is left on the wrong side of Acheron.
lastkth-en.blogspot: Flock is a web browser based on Firefox, which besides a look sort of different, many social networks are integrated. Today, I am going to show you the main features and how to install it in (K) Ubuntu.
