blogs.zdnet.com/Murphy: A few weeks ago we had a fascinating discussion here comparing the functionality available with the Staroffice/OpenOffice open source cluster to that available with Microsoft’s Office set.

fsf.org/blogs: There are many services that will host your project's source code, mailing lists and bug trackers. While very few of these services charge for their services, most of them are built on proprietary software.

cnet.com: The latest proof that Linux has conquered the corporate data center crowd: LinuxWorld is a dud. The relatively sparse turnout reflects that change in perception.
