thevarguy.com: Two small Linux companies are merging. What does it mean to Linux market leaders like Red Hat, Novell and Ubuntu — and Linux customers? Here are some clues from The VAR Guy.
itwire.com: The fact that organising Australia's national Linux conference is fully a year's work has been brought home with the announcement by the organisers of LCA 2009, or linux.conf.au as it is better known, that ideas for papers can be submitted.
linux.com: Alternative Find and Replace for Writer (AltSearch) has the ambitious goal of replacing and enhancing one of the most basic pieces of OpenOffice.org functionality. It's undermined by a chaotic interface, but if you have the patience to continue past first impressions, you will find AltSearch comes far closer to fulfilling its promise than you might initially imagine
blogs.zdnet: Retailers and contract manufacturers in Taiwan say that novice PC users there, like students and housewives, tend to buy the Linux version of the Eee PC701, while geeks go for Windows XP. Does that sound backwards?
chris.pirillo.com: I don’t use Linux as my operating system, but I do have several Linux live CDs. The problem that I always have with live CDs for Linux is that when they’re built, they include things I would never include. Or, they don’t put in things that I feel I should have. At Custom NimbleX, you can easily create your own customized version of Linux.
pcworld.com: Making the switch from Windows to Linux will incur some costs as employees and support staff adjust to the new system's configuration settings, utilities, and applications. Even so, the savings in future hardware and software upgrades could be huge.
montanalinux.org: My first Linux installation took place circa 1992, I pulled my hair out for a month or so while I was trying to figure out how to install this very interesting and FREE operating system. Wow, Linux has gone a long way since my first install.
raiden.net: One of the things that's bothered me to no end for quite a while is the ridiculously huge number of Linux distributions out there. 350+ active or semi-active and nearly 200 dead distros is rather pathetic in my opinion. It would not be hard at all to merge all of those distributions into one "jack of all trades" distribution.
blogs.techrepublic.com: As many of you know, a while back I was converted to Ubuntu. Currently running (happily I might add) Ubuntu 7.10, I have had no need to return to my Red Hat roots. Of course being a writer in this industry, it behoves me to make sure I am up to date on the latest, greatest software. So I decided it was necessary that I install Fedora 9.

phoronix.com: In recent times the Gentoo Linux and its foundation has been plagued with a multitude of problems and times have certainly been challenging for this once popular distribution. It's already July and we are now finally seeing Gentoo's first official release of the year.
jonreagan.wordpress: Recently there has been quite a karfuffle surrounding several people’s disagreement over the direction of KDE 4. As many of you know, KDE 4 is not yet complete, and is far different from it’s ancestor, KDE 3. The arguments have seemingly quieted down, and finally there has been some closure on the debate.
fosswire.com: Many financial applications, such as KMyMoney, can be very useful, however there is often quite a learning curve associated with them. Buddi is an open source personal budgeting application for Windows, Linux and Mac OS X that is designed to keep things very simple.
polishlinux.org: This story begins – as usual – long long time ago, far far away, behind the Ocean, in United States of America, in Bell Laboratories building. In that firm a computer stood. Nothing special about it, but in 1969, when those events started, computer wasn’t commonplace at all. There were no Personal Computers, no Microsoft, IBM or Apple.
earthweb.com: He is, without a doubt, the only open source software leader who might be called “dashing.” Young (34), fabulously rich (north of $500 million as of 1999) Mark Shuttleworth buzzes around on his own private jet, the Canonical One. He is also, without a doubt, the open source leader who is most actively shaping the future of the Linux desktop.
ubuntu.com: The Ubuntu Weekly Newsletter, Issue 98 for the weeks June 29nd - July 5th, 2008 is now available. In this Issue: Ubuntu 8.04.1 released, Intrepid Alpha 2 due out Thursday, Kubuntu Intrepid news, and much more.
izanbardprince.wordpress: Linux is generally regarded as secure: But as preachy as Ubuntu gets about not using a root terminal, you’d think that they must ship this really secure operating system, right? Well….yes and no.
