learningfield.org: The office bought ASUS EeePC 900s and this tidy little tool deserves a review. I almost immediately set about wiping the Xandros Linux install and setting up Ubuntu Linux. I did enough preliminary reading before starting to install the distribution that I felt prepared for the quirks, but after the weekend I’m now pretty comfortable with my choice.
linux.com: There is no dearth of software that can help you run that indispensable Windows app over Linux.

Most of the titles included here are desktop applications sporting an attractive front-end, although we have not forgotten console software.
penguinpetes.com: Why does Free and Open Source Software get trolled so much? You'd think we were doing something awful by just writing programs and giving them away. While it is true that a lot of it could be mere paid asstroturfers courtesy of large commercial software companies, that doesn't explain them all.
smallbusinesscomputing.com: Selling businesses on the benefits of Linux has been a tough proposition for many years. Common reasons cited for not moving to the open-source operating system include system complexity, lack of in-house IT skills and a shortage of business applications. Maybe it’s time, then, to take another look at Linux on the desktop and/or the server side. We'll look at the seven areas you need to consider.
linux-watch.com: One of India's 28 states plans to distribute 100,000 Linux laptops to students there. It sounds like Tamil Nadu's volume purchasing agent decided to use Linux exclusively after being put off by Microsoft's bundling tactics for academic users.
jonathancarter.co.za: Ubuntu has been quite popular on DistroWatch for a long time now. Currently it is at the number 1 position for hits per day on the site over the last six months. There’s a nice little Facebook app that builds stats of which distributions and desktop environments people use.

linuxjournal.com: The Linux Journal recently published an article I wrote on Jean-Pierre Lemoine's AVSynthesis, a program designed for artists working with the computer as a medium for the synthesis of image and sound.
