techtarget.com: Many people who use open-source data backup software become quite attached to a program, whether it's Amanda, BackupPC or Bacula. Administrators responsible for protecting data at SMBs or at the departmental level typically gravitate to these free programs because they're comfortable writing custom scripts and working with Unix and Linux.

techradar.com: Google's Engineering Director has promised that its forthcoming Chrome OS will see 'the end of malware'.
pocketgamer.co.uk: First impressions of the new console are incredibly favourable. It's smaller than the GP2X, and is only moderately bigger than Nintendo's famously dinky Game Boy Micro.
earthweb.com: The Desktop Summit two weeks ago in Gran Canaria was supposed to be the first joint conference between GNOME and KDE. And, in the reporting, that's what it was. But in the blogs, the event is going down as the time that Richard Stallman was accused of sexism.
reddevil62-techhead: sidux 2009-02 is a live Linux CD based on the Debian Linux distribution and, as anyone who spends time in the GNU/Linux world knows, Debian has several branches. sidux 2009-02 is based on Debian sid, the unstable branch of Debian.
blog.mozilla.com: In the last few days, there have been several reports (including one via SANS) of a bug in Firefox related to handling of certain very long Unicode strings. While these strings can result in crashes of some versions of Firefox, the reports by press and various security agencies have incorrectly indicated that this is an exploitable bug.
raiden.net: Claws Mail is a very light weight, easy to use email client that's not only popular, but it works in an incredible number of environments. The current "stable" release is version 3.7.2, which oddly enough, doesn't appear in most distros.

everyjoe.com: I’ve been using Drivel for the longest time but I’ve realized that there are other tools I could use for blogging. And here’s a short comparison of the three tools I’ve used.
internetling.com: The first half of 2009 is over. Once again open source proved that developers collaborating all over the world deliver constant platform improvement. Let’s see what they have in store for us this time.
Welcome to the Ubuntu Weekly Newsletter, Issue #151 for the week July 12th - July 18th, 2009 is available.
bitburners.com: Something has gone south in the recent developments of the Linux operating system. My old linux rig IBM Think T41 is experiencing significant slow downs with very latest revisions of Ubuntu, and other major distributions.
sapphirewillow.com: I’ve been using Kubuntu Jaunty since its release, and quite a bit before that as well (during the beta phase). Generally speaking, I can’t do without it. For our intents and purposes, it does its job. But that doesn’t mean it’s not a failure, especially when benchmarked against its own lofty goals it set for itself.
blog.paultags.com: I love KDE. I have used KDE since 3.1 on Mandrake 9.1. Then KDE4 came around. The 4.0 RC was buggy, feature incomplete and hard to use. I felt alienated and switched to Debian and GNOME. KDE is a second class citizen in the world of debian based distros.
