linuxjournal.com: You may recall about 4 months ago, I reviewed the Eee PC. As it turned out, the computer was actually a gift from my wife, so unlike many of the other products I review, I got to keep it. I'm going to give you the quick rundown of how those 4 months have been with the little lappy at my side:

computerworld.com: If there is a single complaint that is laid at the feet of Linux time and time again, it's that the operating system is too complicated and arcane for casual computer users to tolerate. You can't ask newbies to install device drivers or recompile the kernel, naysayers argue.
computerworld.com.au: Linux offers equivalents to many Windows applications that are often as good as--or even better than--the programs you're used to. In some cases the apps are also available in Windows and Mac OS versions, allowing dual-booters to stay with the same set of free programs regardless of the operating system in use.
itwire.com: Richard Matthew Stallman, the founder of the Free Software Foundation, has probably been called many names and been compared to a great many characters in his lifetime. I doubt, however, whether he has been even likened to a capricious fashion model.
dwasifar.com: I was reading the wikipedia article on the Sony rootkit scandal from a couple of years ago, and it got me to thinking about the war that the entertainment media industry has declared on its customers. And it occurred to me that some parallels exist between that and the open source movement.
LinuxInsider: The prediction by Gartner that Windows is nearing collapse resonated cheerily through the open source community last week. Some bloggers, however, greeted the report with a healthy dose of skepticism, noting that Microsoft is likely to carry on quite nicely. Still, the penguin crowd can't resist an opportunity to bash Redmond, especially one this juicy.
linuxsolutions.fr: While the thought of Linux actually powering the massive financial exchange computer systems around the world would have been absurd just a couple of years ago, there is a growing feeling that the open source computer operating system is ready to make the jump.
Also: Linux ready for real-time computing in financial services
mssaleh.wordpress: I’ve been using Linux on and off for about 7 years. I am not a programmer or a hacking enthusiast. I’ve never seen a product that can convert every user into an advocate except Linux, and I kept telling myself that it must be so good to deserve such a treatment.
linux.com: Jeremiah Gray wants to provide an interesting way to learn about Linux, so he's created a new comic strip, called Hackett and Bankwell, about the open source operating system. The strip will be published as a series of comic books that Gray hopes will appeal to new Linux users, but he says it is "more than just a comic book version of a Linux training guide."
sizlopedia.com: The countdown for Ubuntu 8.04 finally begins today as now there are only 9 days to go for the official launch of Ubuntu 8.04 Hardy Heron. But before Ubuntu lovers get their hands on Hardy, their biggest anticipation is about the new features and applications coming in Ubuntu 8.04.
computerworld.com: As Dell Inc. approaches its one-year anniversary of selling laptop and desktop computers preloaded with Ubuntu Linux, the company is continuing to expand the fledgling program to new computer models and markets. Dell representatives said sales of the Linux-loaded machines are encouraging.
blog.wired.com: A computer forensic specialist testified in the Hans Reiser murder trial here Monday that the defendant's two hard drives he hid from the authorities did not contain evidence linking the Linux programmer to the 2006 disappearance of his estranged wife, Nina Reiser.

reddevil62-techhead.blogspot: UNLIKE the Scottish weather, I’ve warmed a lot toward Mandriva in recent months. The thaw in relations began when I reviewed Mandriva’s excellent 2008 Flash distribution (read it here) and has continued with their just-released desktop offering, Mandriva 2008 Spring.
look2linux.com: Why do people convert to Linux and why do people contradict their choice, I will investigate this in this post and bring to your attention 15 points. 10 for and 5 against converting to Linux.
fosswire.com: KDE-Look.org is the premier site for styles, themes and other goodies for your KDE desktop. One of the goodies offered there is wallpapers. You can download them from the website, but for KDE users there is a better way…
linuxplanet.com: Xfce isn't for everyone, but for servers or minimal desktop systems, it's just what the doctor ordered. Rather lightweight in Window Manager terms, -Xfce arrives with a full complement of applications from Abiword, gnumeric, and pidgin to CD/DVD burning software (Brasero), Thunar File Manager, and a host of administrative applications. For this article, I am reviewing the Xfce Fedora Spin based on Fedora 8 and Xfce4.
Matt Asay: Argentina's congress is actively considering a bill that would require all government offices to use open-source software. It's partly a cost-saving move, and partly a way to bring the Argentine government into compliance with its software licensing:
blogs.techrepublic.com: Yesterday I downloaded and fired up the Flock 1.1 release. What is Flock? Flock is a Firefox-based browser aimed toward the social-networking butterfly in all of us. But it’s much more than that. How much more? Let’s find out.
