LinuxToday: There have been a couple of thought-provoking columns that have been published recently that I wanted to add my own two cents. The first column is the most recently published: my colleague Bruce Byfield's piece "It's Time to Get Over Microsoft" that ran over on Datamation. The other article I wanted to mention was the Linux Magazine opinion piece "Is 2008 the Year of the Linux Desktop?", written by my friend and co-author Joe "Zonker" Brockmeier.
kmandla.wordpress: I don’t follow the PCLinuxOS crowd. So I’ve procrastinated in trying out the Fluxbox version of PCLinuxOS. I have to admit that it’s very attractive.
drupal.org: With another month of active beta testing, our code is growing more stable by the day. Since Drupal 6 beta 2 was released, we have committed over 180 fixes to the Drupal 6.x code, so we are proud to announce the release of the third beta version of Drupal 6.x for your testing.
Serdar Yegulalp: Yes, I know the headline sounds like the fodder for a joke: "Run IE on Linux? Why would you want to?" But there are circumstances where it's unavoidable -- compatibility testing, or accessing IE-only sites without dual-booting -- and in the last few weeks I've come across a couple of interesting approaches to this issue.
iTWire: A new version of Firefox containing a fix for a security vulnerability is expected next week. Firefox 188.8.131.52 addresses a pair of vulnerabilities in the browser's handling of Java Archive (jar) URIs.
it-director.com/blogs: Here's a bit more information about my chosen Linux configuration. ...or Why I've replaced Vista with Linux Part 2.
beranger: I am used with a very quick way to find things about packages on a few distros, on the spot, using a web browser. Unfortunately, unlike in the case of Debian and Ubuntu, if you don't know the exact name of the package, you're lost.
itwire.com: Today I've finished installations of two very different operating systems, Vista and Kubuntu. Both are essentially trying to accomplish the same thing, which is to provide desktop users a satisfying and relatively seemless desktop computing experience. Both succeed to a certain degree and both fail in some important areas. The question is why?
blogs.the451group: Say what you want about GPLv3, but the update to the most popular open source software license continues to close loopholes that have been used to avoid sharing source code, patent protection and other freedoms that the authors intended.
phoronix: For the past two months, the AMD release train has been running full speed ahead as they introduced their new driver code-base and last month had dropped in the AIGLX support. However, this month the AMD train has taken an intermediate stop as this closed-source driver embarks on its next journey. As always, we have all of the details for you on this month's ATI Catalyst 7.11 Linux display driver release.

tuxvaio.blogspot: Released in the UK on 12 November 2007, I purchased an ASUS Pc 701 on the 14th . I bought it purely on the strength that it came with a Linux OS (Operating System) pre-installed and was so small it weighed a kilogram, WiFi ready and all for £219.
/home/liquidat: Two minor issues of the fedoraproject web pages and services have been fixed recently: the repoview is back again, and the build service search is now case-insensitive. In the meantime the package database shapes up to a central place for all package related tasks.
techrepublic: I have scoured the Internet for holiday gifts that are geeky with an open source, stick-it-to-the-man slant. Now these are just my random, probably unsuitable selections, but you feel free to add your own ideas.
raiden's realm: The primary reason for writing this is to help new users develop an understanding of the Linux file system commands. Not all of them, just some of the more common ones. Let's look at what they do and why I would need to use them, what not to do, what each thing means and what it's for.
blogbeebe: Always a patsy for the New and Shiny, today I decided to believe what I read about Firefox 3 in the press. I downloaded the tarball, unpacked it, and ran Firefox 3 Beta 1 on my Ubuntu 7.10 system. Loads of fun!

itwire.com: People are a funny lot. One person’s trash is another person’s treasure. And one person’s primary means of instructing a computer is met with disdain by another. There’s a perennial battle between mousers and keyboard jockeys, and “what’s in” appears to go in cycles.
Matthew Aslett: There was a lot of excitement earlier this week following presidential hopeful Barack Obama’s promise to “put government data online in universally accessible formats” should he make it to the White House.
itbusiness.ca: Today's IT departments need to do more, with less budget. There are many key benefits inherent in Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
linux.com: Nobody ever thinks to mention .rpmnew and .rpmsave extensions to new users of Fedora or Red Hat derivatives. Many, I suspect, simply leave them alone, uncertain what to do about them. Yet dealing with them is simply a matter of using a few basic commands, and can be a necessity for ensuring trouble-free upgrades in the future.
