stuff.co.nz: The Linux movement has taken off and Dave Thompson goes undercover to find out how to join. Every week we get someone asking about Linux what is it, why is it and should I do it? The answer is complicated.
softpedia.com: The Greater Columbus Convention Center will host this year's annual Ohio LinuxFest, which will take place on October 10-11. Now at its sixth edition, the Ohio LinuxFest will include a large expo and popular speakers, while welcoming free software developers, open source enthusiasts and virtually anyone who is interested.
ostatic.com: The Digital Divide -- there isn't a nation where it doesn't exist, yet it seems so relative. In one place, a child going online via dial up using a PII seems at a disadvantage. Elsewhere, that child has a tool that could change his life. Open source has much to offer here.
techradar.com: A few years ago, it looked like Linux might – just might – take over the world. Companies like Lindows/Linspire were going to make it easy enough for your mother to use. Bright coloured boxes of SUSE and Red Hat and plenty of others were piled high in every computer store. It was going to be a whole new era. Except it didn't really happen, did it?
linux-mag.com: A few months ago, we finished the third of a series about features added to longstanding utility programs. This month we’ll look at the new features that GNU programmers and others have added to all of the other features that find(1) already had.
blogs.techrepublic.com: Many Linux users make use of the KDE or GNOME desktop environments and when it comes to file management, they don’t venture beyond using the environment-provided file management tools like Konqueror or Nautilus. Considering this is Linux, there are many other file management tools to choose from, some of which you may find preferable to the “defaults.”
community.zdnet.co.uk/blog: I installed Ubuntu 8.10 (Intrepid Ibex) Alpha 6 on both of my laptops over the weekend, and it looks very good. In the original announcement of the Intrepid Ibex development, Ubuntu spoke of giving priority to "pervasive internet access", and it appears to me that they have made good progress on that.
raiden.net: Ever since I first ran into Linux Mint over a year ago, I've been enamored by it's elegant simplicity, rock solid stability, good hardware support, and excellent user experience. This distribution has continued to impress me time and again, and has really become my number one recommended distro, actually displacing PcLinuxOS in the top slot, for favorite new user friendly distributions.
blogs.techrepublic.com: I know, I know…you’re wondering why this is in the open source blog. The reason is simple: I have used open source operating systems for a long, long time now. I have championed against Microsoft for over ten years. But when Techrepublic liked the idea of me writing some Vista content for them, I couldn’t say no.
The release candidate 2 of OpenOffice.org 3.0 is now ready for testing. This test release is made available to allow a broad user base to test and evaluate the next major version of OpenOffice.org, but is not recommended for production use at this stage.
techradar.com: Firefox has been outperforming IE in every department for years, and version 3 is speedier than ever. But tweak the right settings and you could make it faster still.

blogs.pcworld.co.nz: A number of distributions mess around with OpenOffice.org and release their own versions. Personally, I prefer the unadulterated version. Not only do you get all the features, but you can also upgrade the moment the latest release is out and not have to wait for your distro's package maintainers to catch up.
liquidat.wordpress: In Fedora and Red Hat/CentOS unattended installations are done via kickstart. It is also the tool of your choice if you want to set up several systems in the exact same way. With some simple tricks it can become even more useful.

linux.com: Mail merge, the production of multiple documents that differ only in minor details, remains a difficult task in OpenOffice.org Writer. Few use the function regularly, and when they do, the mail merge wizard seems to cause as much confusion as it resolves. FastMailMerge is not only simplicity itself, but a welcome relief that easily lives up to its name.

euneeblic.livejournal: Ubuntu and Linux Mint are great for new users, but I'm not a new user. I'm not trying to be snobby, and I don't think I'm better than anyone else; I just have different needs than most people. I don't want polish. I want to see and work with the guts of my operating system.
