Matt Asay: Recently I was fortunate to interview Chris Anderson, editor-in-Chief of Wired and the keynote speaker for the Open Source Think Tank, coming up on February 7-9, 2008, in Napa Valley, California. Given Chris' views, I think he's an ideal person to headline an event whose theme is "The Future of Commercial Open Source."
Adrian Kingsley-Hughes: Linux might be free to download and install, and it might offer you freedoms that aren’t available from commercial software, but don’t let that fool you into thinking that everything about Linux is free. You might save money, but there are still hidden costs that need to be taken into account.
zdnet.co.uk: The open-source development company Trolltech has switched sides in the ongoing war between the various mobile Linux consortia.
IDG News Service: Intel is displaying four new ultra-mobile PCs designed around its Menlow chips at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES), including highly anticipated devices from Lenovo and Toshiba.
news.com: Coverity, which creates automated source-code analysis tools, announced late Monday its first list of open-source projects that have been certified as free of security defects. Eleven projects made the list: Amanda, NTP, OpenPAM, OpenVPN, Overdose, Perl, PHP, Postfix, Python, Samba, and TCL.
Matt Asay: First it was Charles and Camilla and now this! While the Queen of England used to run her site with Red Hat Linux, she's moved to Windows Server 2003. Evidently she's been listening to Johnny Rotten a bit too much.
downloadsquad.com: Your shiny new Linux system has it all -- except that one program you really needed it to install. You get online, you find the program's website, and click 'download'. Except there's not just a link to the program there. There are four, or five, or more.
Charles Babcock: Popular open source projects, such as Samba, the PHP, Perl, and Tcl dynamic languages used to bind together elements of Web sites, and Amanda, the popular open source backup and recovery software running on half a million servers, were all found to have dozens or hundreds of security exposures.
computerworlduk.com: Just hours after Mozilla debuted its first viral marketing campaign, it shut down the website and apologised to users for what it admitted were offensive statistics used to promote Firefox.
blag.linuxgamers.net: KDE 4 isn’t finished yet. I’ve been playing with the quite up-to-date KDE 4 pre-release packages for openSUSE, should be very close to the release version we’re being told to expect at the end of the week, but there are bugs and feature regressions everywhere.
kdubois.net: I wanted to write a little bit of advice for those of you wanting to move from Microsoft Windows over to a Linux based desktop computer. Today, I’ll run down a few of the points that are incentives to switch and some that might be incentives to stick with windows.
securecomputing.net.au: For all the hype about the relative security of the two most popular browsers, is Firefox really any more secure than Internet Explorer? For that matter, is it even possible, as a British company with a “zero-footprint” browser claims, to develop a truly secure browser?
economist.com: IT WOULD be a stunt, but one perhaps worth performing, to write this column on the tiny, green and white, $200 XO computer from One Laptop Per Child (OLPC) that sits idle before your columnist. Alas, he cannot.

tectonic: Linux creator Linux Torvalds says that the GPL2 (GNU General Public License) is still the best licensing option for the Linux Kernel. Torvalds has consistently rejected the GPL version 3 licensing scheme.

linux.com: GNU/Linux is bursting with information about the system on which it runs. The system's hardware and memory, its Internet link and current processes, the latest activity of each user -- all this information and more is available.
ruminations: One of the nicer things about *nix systems is that even your graphical work environment, the GUI, is a matter of choice. In this article I will explore how easy it is to add both GNOME and Xfce to PCLinuxOS.
abhay-techzone.blogspot: Konqueror has the distinction of being the default file manager as well as the default web browser of KDE 3.xx. Its like the center of my KDE desktop, hence when KDE devs decided to limit Konqueror as a web browser and introduce Dolphin as the default KDE file manager, I was disappointed. Here is my take on the new konqueror.

linuxlove.org: The 2008 MiniMe edition it’s just a little preview of what will be available in the final release. It’s name suits this release very well as it’s indeed small. The ISO is about 200MB in size, it provides a very basic KDE 3.5.8 desktop and ALSA 1.0.15 running under a 18.104.22.168 kernel.
