c|net: This gallery showcases several 1970s-era machines from Steven Stengel's vintage computer collection. Stengel has graciously allowed CNET to republish his photos and descriptions. The Model 5100 is IBM's first microcomputer (not a mainframe) and is also considered the world's first portable computer.
junauza.blogspot.com: I have compiled 23 of the most outstanding free/open source software. If these software have price tags, I would consider them the most expensive and valuable.
iTToolbox blogs: There are so many different Linux distributions around and perhaps for you, none of them tickle your fancy. Fortunately Linux has a solution. You can build your own Linux from scratch. It is not that hard and there is even a tried and true set of instructions to help you build it. This was all started off by a man with vision and an itch to scratch so he scratched it by documenting his own Linux build. Here is the inside info straight from the guy himself.
joeblog.info: Naturally, I had to give it it try, even if only in VMWare. What follows is not a complete test, but only some impressions.
Those that know me or my work in the Linux community know I always see the good in Linux distributions and open source software. I'm a "glass-is-half-full" kinda gal where Linux is concerned. But I'm having a hard time finding anything good at all to say about Ubuntu. Why the h-e-double_hockey_sticks is it so popular? It's the next thing to running nothing there is.
This tutorial shows how you can set up a Slackware 12 GNU/Linux desktop that is a full-fledged replacement for a Windows desktop, i.e. that has all the software that people need to do the things they do on their Windows desktop.
groklaw: IP Innovation LLC has just filed a patent infringement claim against Red Hat and Novell. It was filed October 9, case no. 2:2007cv00447, IP Innovation, LLC et al v. Red Hat Inc. et al, in Texas. Where else? The patent troll magnet state.
computerworld.com.au: You can download a complete version of Ubuntu Linux from the Ubuntu website. The ISO (or CD) image is around 700MB. Two versions of Ubuntu are supported: 6.06 and 7.04 -- we're using 7.04 for this walkthrough. To follow suit, select Desktop Edition, Ubuntu 7.04.
linux.com: If you spend most of your time in OpenOffice.org, you might want to be able to manage to-do lists and tasks without leaving the comfort of the office suite. Since Writer doesn't have such a feature, you can create your own no-frills task tool and at the same time sharpen your OOoBasic skills.
Bruce Byfield: Long ago, I lost any queasiness about the command line. I’m not one of those who think it’s the only way to interact with their computers, but it’s a rare day that I don’t use it three or four times on my GNU/Linux system. To average users, the suggestion that they use the command line – or the shell, or the terminal, or whatever else you want to call it is only slightly less welcome than the suggestion that they go out and deliberately contract AIDS.

/home/liquidat: Some days ago I looked at the Kopete roadmap and saw that it was updated recently. It now states that full Decibel support won’t be there before KDE 4.2, but that Telepathy will be supported as a plugin in KDE 4.1. The most important news is that the new version Kopete 1.0 will not make it into KDE 4.0.
internetnews.com: So Microsoft is waving the patent stick. Again. Is there any substance to his latest claims about open source and Microsoft's patents? Somehow, that part got lost in the hyped-up coverage of his latest threats.
c|net: Two years after acquiring the company that developed the AppArmor security software for Linux, Novell has laid off team members behind the project, CNET News.com has learned.
steelgryphon.com: Alex seems to have stirred up some debate regarding visual refresh on Linux. I wanted to talk a little about why its not as big of a priority right now, and longer-term thinking I’ve been doing about Linux.
Terminally Incoherent: Ever wondered how to sync up your Kontact Calendar with your Google Calendar? Me too! But I figured it out. Below you can find step by step instructions on how to set it up.
Red Hat Magazine: By and large, most Red Hat Linux systems will have Bash as the default shell. Bash is a darn great shell, but this article is about another equally great shell, called Z-Shell, that has most of the attributes of Bash, but in some cases goes the extra mile to give you the flexibility to customize your shell more than Bash allows.
iTWire: Linux users don't accept criticism of their chosen distribution easily - that's probably why a number of reactions to my last piece about openSUSE tended to be somewhat short of making a point.

SearchEnterpriseLinux.com blog: As is becoming a regular occurrence these days, it seems, a few news outlets out there this week are starting to beat the “Ubuntu pre-installed on the server” drum again as the 7.10 release of that operating system draws near (it’s October 18, fyi).
LinuxWorld: By opening its .Net Framework libraries Microsoft is again responding to the leadership of the Open Source community, according to industry consultants and developers, but remaining on the back foot.
