fosswire.com: Another six months, another Ubuntu release. This time around the table we have the Intrepid Ibex; 8.10. Not quite a ground-breaking release, but rather the framework for one. Why do I say that? Because there isn’t much new immediately visible to the user. Let’s take a look.
kyleabaker.com: It looks like Opera is about to do a follow-up release of 9.62 to fix a zero-day flaw that made it into 9.61. The International install file is dated 10/29/2008 02:47:00 PM on the ftp server.
Jim Zemlin: For those that decry the constant prediction of the “year of the Linux desktop” I am happy to say that next year Linux may actually ship on more desktops than Windows or the Mac. That is right, I said next year. What is driving this? Two words: fast boot.
blogs.computerworld.com: I've been running Ubuntu 8.10, aka "Intrepid Ibex," on a Gateway GT5622 and on a Lenovo R61 ThinkPad. On these PCs, Ubuntu 8.10 ran without any hiccups, so I could focus on the features.

raccoonfink.com: OpenNMS 1.6.0 Is Out and it features a ton of changes since the last stable release. Here's what I put in the release notes as an introduction to the 1.6.0 release:
computerworld.com: Mozilla Corp. is considering just two more security updates for Firefox 2.0 before it retires the browser at the end of this year.
agateau.wordpress: Gwenview has always been file-system oriented, but with the advance of Nepomuk, associating semantic information to your files is becoming more ubiquitous. I started adding support for Nepomuk in Gwenview since KDE 4.1.
blogs.zdnet: A spokesperson for Psystar tells AppleInsider that the company is working on its first Mac notebook clone, which it will “price aggressively.”
linux.com: Five of the top 10 most downloaded distributions on Distrowatch use the Debian package system. It has developed a rich infrastructure of utilities -- not just the core commands apt-get and dpkg, but also such less well-known commands as apt-cache, apt-spy, and apt-listbugs. In addition, an array of other scripts, some mashups of existing utilities, and some original, are regularly available on sites like openDesktop.org.
computingtech.blogspot: The hardware required to run Ubuntu depends on what kind of system you want to set up. A very minimal system that runs a textual (command line) interface and has very few software packages installed requires very different hardware from a system that runs a GUI.
earthweb.com: Nearly everyday we hear about how the modern Linux distributions are not only ready for the home user, they can even meet the growing demands of many small businesses as well. But rather than debating this point, I’ll examine the tools that would potentially mean that more small businesses would feel the confidence to take the open source plunge.
on-disk.com: For adults who may not find the child focused graphical interface called Sugar practical for daily use, the Fedora 10 option allows your XO to behave in a more familiar way.
blogs.zdnet.com: Hewlett Packard on Wednesday rolled out a netbook lineup designed to play catch up with Dell, Asus and others. But the real interesting play here is HP’s move to develop a custom Linux operating system for one of its netbooks.
mdzlog.wordpress: Leading up to the Ubuntu 8.10 release, Ubuntu developers and quality assurance engineers have been very busy sorting bugs, deciding what can and should be fixed for the final release, and what cannot. They make these decisions by estimating the importance of each bug, identifying whether it is a regression, assessing the risk of potential fixes, and by applying their best judgement.
What is a "cloud" application? It’s any application that has the power of a desktop (as in installed locally to your computer) app - except it’s all on the web. You probably use cloud apps already. But this is about Photoshop, except this one is free - and it’s still Photoshop.
