zdnet.com.au: OpenOffice.org 2.4.0 is a free, open source alternative to Microsoft's Office application suite.

internetling.com: I still use Firefox on Debian, but sometimes I just don’t have the time or the nerves to wait for this add-on-packed conglomerate to load. While there is a noticeable speed improvement with Firefox 3, you still need some time for it to load. So, when I’m in a hurry, I sometimes fire-up an alternative browser.

thetimes.co.za: MARK Shuttleworth isn’t just a space tourist. To geeks the world over, he’s the Self-Appointed Benevolent Dictator for Life or SABDFL for short.

linuxloop.com: Back in March, I tried to find as many Linux-based UMPCs as I could. At the time, I found 18, which was expanded to 20 with the help of commenters. After many more Linux-based UMPC releases, I decided to see how many more I could find.

However, there has been some last minute bloodshed before this first major X Server release in nearly a year.
