Matt Asay: I'm very grateful to Digg user BrokeBody for reminding me of just how intoxicated we were with the Linux desktop back in 2003. 20 percent market share by 2008. The money quote? "We didn't see Linux on the desktop as a major market, but we were wrong."

linuxjournal.com: Three things are striking about the recent launch of Firefox 3. But the question has to be: what now? How can we harness that amazing spirit, to make the Firefox Effect permanent, not just a media event that comes around once every few years?
phoronix.com: Now that we have had time to complete testing of the Radeon HD 4850, today we are sharing the first Linux results from this brand-new ATI graphics processor.
