/home/liquidat: Richard Hughes recently proposed to use D-Bus to abstract the package management solutions for Linux. He implemented the abstraction in the “PackageKit” layer and showed a working GUI.
The 22.214.171.124 stable kernel update has been released. There's a number of fixes in here, one of which is security-related.

Penguin Pete: There are many ways to answer the questions of a technology newbie. Sometimes it is appropriate to respond in detail, sometimes it is appropriate to tell them that they would be better served by Reading That Fabled Manual or making friends with Google... and sometimes there are people who are beyond any help, at all, at all.
linux.com: System administrators need to secure their systems while avoiding locking them down so strictly that they become useless. Bastille is a software tool that eases the process of hardening a Linux system, giving you the choice of what to lock down and what not to, depending on your security requirements.
Debian Administration: Drupal is an excellent free software content management system, written in PHP. It's a good choice if you have to build a new site for non-technical users or customers.

beranger: Everything *NIX, from GNU/Linux to *BSD, has some overengineered or underengineered concepts that don't fit that well with a desktop or laptop usage. A short list.
matt hartley: Behold the vast and sprawling feast of open source downloads. Incredible, ain’t it? Armed with little more than an Internet connection and some extra space on your hard drive, a rich cornucopia awaits you.
still don’t have a title: Firefox is constantly gaining marked share (especially here in Europe) and it’s little not-yet-so-popular brother Thunderbird is evolving too.

matt asay: Tim believes that open source, at least as defined by open-source licensing, has a short shelf-life that will be consumed by Web 2.0 by proprietary software vendors. In other words, why don't I just give up, sell out, and go home?

broeksema.dev: Yesterday was the big day. After a package update of my Gentoo system, which took way too long anyway, libexpat seemed to get an update also. What's the deal?

Freesoftware mag: Knoppix made live CDs popular—and with good reason too.

Also: Spin images on openSUSE 10.3 Beta1 using KIWI
linux.com: Managing one site on a Web server can be tough enough, and the job is even harder if you have to host multiple client sites on a badly configured setup. If you're running Apache, you can make things easier by setting up virtual hosts.
itbusiness: The most recognizable name in the open source community talks about why he didn't go the proprietary route for Linux and how it could easily have been just another of his 'random small projects'
