bytebot.net/blog: With moving my workload to two laptops (one for work, on OS X and one for play, on Linux), you invariably have issues with being as productive as you should be in the software that you use. Here are some add-ons I can’t live without.
traveller301.wordpress: I am going to briefly list five reasons I would say Vista is better than Linux. I am not passing a final judgement between the two OSes. I firmly believe it is best to leave the choice of OS up to the end user. I currently use OS X, Fedora 8, Ubuntu 7.10, openSUSE, Windows XP, Windows Server 2003 and Windows Vista.

duncan.mac-vicar.com: While reading Review: Hat Trick For Fedora 9 Beta, it caught my attention that the author says “Fedora continues to wear the innovation hat” because some of the changes described there. I did not see any killer feature openSUSE 11.0 does not have too, and a few ones are worth to highlight:
people.cs.uu.nl: Existing package and system configuration management tools suffer from an imperative model, where system administration actions such as upgrading packages or changes to system configuration files are stateful: they destructively update the state of the system. This leads to many problems. In this paper we show that we can overcome these problems.
Charles Babcock: Linux usage has grown fast over the past several years as the operating system moved from perimeter Web servers to workloads much closer to the heart of the business, while gaining a broad following of contributors and commercial users. But the days of these easy advances may be past.
beranger.org: As some open source developers seem to be unable to accept a mere reporting of a bug, this got me a reason for a long summary. I'll have to start by invoking the Evil before trying to prove that nowadays there is a severe lack of direction in whatever concerns the open-source desktop.
eweek.com: Five years ago, Red Hat sent a shock wave through the Linux community when it announced a new bleeding-edge development pace for its flagship distribution, Red Hat Linux. Fast-forward to today: Red Hat remains focused most keenly on the enterprise server stack. The lack of an identity and management solution for Linux is retarding Linux's growth.
ladyofthecastle.blogspot: In the last post..I tried to make the argument for why GNU/Linux is wonderful and how everyone should make the switch. In this post, I will be reviewing the distributions (distros, or "flavors") of GNU/Linux that I personally have downloaded and tried out, which ones I liked or didn't and why.

adventuresinopensource.blogspot: I went over to the Isle of Man for a friends wedding and took my Dell m1330n laptop with me which runs Ubuntu Gutsy. I used it a lot while I was there and it was running well but I wanted to reinstall the OS.
linuxseekers.com: Mandriva Linux is a predominantly KDE-centric Linux distribution originating from France. I decided to review Mandriva 2008 Spring (aka Mandriva Linux 2008.1) when I got to know that, this new Spring edition has a full support for the Asus Eee PC and also improved support for mobile device synchronization.

downloadsquad.com: Recently, we reviewed Ubuntu 8.04 beta. We received several complaints for cranky people in the comments, and so we decided to take a look at some newer code. We decided to spice things up a little bit by trying Kubuntu instead of Ubuntu.
theregister.co.uk: Microsoft is buying Yahoo! to . . . oh, that's right no one from Redmond has really explained that one yet. Most of the pundits think Redmond has an ad play in mind. Well, the Open Season crew sees it differently. In Episode 15, Matt Asay, Dave Rosenberg and I dig into the real motives behind Microsoft's lust for Yahoo!
kevincarmony.blogspot: After failing to get any response from Linspire as to why they are not holding annual shareholder meetings, I asked them publicly to do so in my last blog. Not only has Linspire not held a shareholders meeting, but to this day, they have not even responded to my inquiries with so much as a "we'll get back to you on that."
ostatic.com: Many people love Linux but aren't able to commit to using it full time. Some folks use certain peripherals that Linux can't yet accommodate, while others need applications for which suitable open source options don't yet exist. Fortunately, virtualization makes it possible to put your favorite Linux distribution right on your Mac or Windows PC.
linux.com: I came away from the second annual Linux Foundation Collaboration Summit with mixed feelings. I mean, it's hard not to support the group that pays Linus Torvalds to spend his time continuing to lead the poster-boy project for free and open source software. But at the same time, those golden chains are my biggest concern about the Linux Foundation.
linuxtoday.com: It might not be entirely evident from the headlines, but if you read the articles, it will become immediately clear: these positive statements about Linux and negative statements about Windows are courtesy of analysts.
crn.com: Fedora announced Fedora 9 Beta late last month, and Test Center reviewers replaced the current Fedora 8 install to see what the new version has to offer. There is a solid indication of the new things to come that makes the stable release, expected May 1, worth watching.
