earthweb.com: For the Linux community, 2007 has been a fantastically successful year. But all this success isn’t enough for me to start recommending that family and friends abandon the Microsoft-imposed shackles and head off into a world of Linux freedom.
telegraph.co.uk: This week we begin your Puppy training in earnest and we'll start by connecting to the Internet. If the PC you are running Puppy Linux has a connection through a router or Wi-Fi adaptor then it should be a breeze.
jem report: Traditionally, system administrators have had to rely on expensive course training and personal mentorship to learn the skills required for their jobs. These days, self-learning through books, practice on home computers, and computer-based training programs on the Web are taking a larger role in sysadmin education.
Serdar Yegulalp: Asus may not have properly fulfilled its obligations under the GPL to release all the source code used to build the Eee PC's proprietary hardware drivers. Or maybe someone just goofed.
news.zdnet.com: It hasn't been a good month for my code. Samba, the project I'm responsible for, has had to announce several security flaws. Unfortunately some of them were in code I wrote. I always do a large amount of soul-searching whenever that happens.
arsgeek: Every year since 2004 has been touted as the year of the Linux desktop. That year where Linux of some flavor makes huge inroads into the home and work desktop scene. Every year these predictions have fallen short.
internetnews.com: The GPL is the most widely used open source license on Earth, yet it has never been tested in a U.S. courtroom. That's not to say that alleged GPL license violations aren't already hitting the country's judicial system.
wired blogs: The divorce between Nina and Hans Reiser was acrimonious at best, and their disputes often surrounded whether their young son could play violent video games, the missing woman's family law attorney testified here Monday at the husband's murder trial.
eWeek: The good news for everyone is that you can get a good, solid laptop for under a grand these days. The bad news for Vista users is that many of those laptops, even though they're sold with Vista, have nothing like enough resources to run Vista decently.
australianit: About three years ago, Linux was perceived as Microsoft's Achille's heel, fast-forward and it's obvious Linux hasn't replaced every Windows desktop, but it has achieved some success in Australia.
linux.com: openSUSE is one of the most popular free-software-only distributions, and it's jointly developed by Novell and members of the community. In the first week of November the openSUSE developers released installable live versions of the distro's latest 10.3 release, one each for KDE and GNOME desktop environments.
itwire.com: Every year, there are numerous technical conferences held in Australia where attendees have to make do without internet access. That doesn't happen when the topic is Linux and the meeting is Australia's national Linux conference .
blog.lxpages.com: This article is about Gutsy Gibbon (7.10) and let me tell you all my beloved readers. I’m impressed! Not only was I impressed with the painless installation and setup but I was also pleased with how much quicker the boot up process was!
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.
