crunchbang.org: This is the third release of CrunchBang Linux. This release is based on the current development version of Ubuntu, "Hardy Heron". This release sees numerous improvements and when installed makes for a really usable, fast and attractive system.
beranger.org: I have been using Ubuntu 8.04 as Xubuntu since Alpha 5, which eventually pissed me off enough to drop it yesterday. When things that worked are breaking just 3 weeks before the release of a LTS... this is not "normal", or is it?
kmandla.wordpress: For good or for evil, a default Ubuntu Hardy command-line-plus-xorg system doesn’t leave you penniless and stranded. You actually get a fair smattering of clunky little programs that work just fine, but are ugly as sin and unlikely to make you happy — unless you’re working at around 100Mhz or so.
Glyn Moody: I must confess to a certain disappointment with Red Hat. On the one hand, it is clearly the leader of the open source world – both historically and in terms of its size. On the other, it is remarkable for the low profile it keeps.
linux-watch.com: How do you herd cats? Well, as the famous EDS commercial shows, it isn't easy. In a sense, that's what the Linux Foundation, the nonprofit pro-Linux organization, will be doing this week at the invitation-only LF Collaboration Summit at the University of Texas Super Computing Center here.
This document describes how to set up an installation environment with kickstart and NFS on Fedora 8. With the resulting system you will be able run unattended Fedora 8 installations on the client systems in your LAN.

linux.com: While KDE users get to boss KIO slaves for easier access to system and network resources, humble GNOME users can perform similar feats with its virtual file system, called GnomeVFS, which is an extension of the physical filesystem on a disk. Using GnomeVFS, users can work with non-local data that can come from unusual places, such as within compressed gzip archives.
computerworld.com: Since the dawn of time -- or, at least, the dawn of personal computers -- the holy wars over desktop operating systems have raged, with each faction proclaiming the unrivaled superiority of its chosen OS and the vile loathsomeness of all others.
club.mandriva.com: The Mandriva Linux 2008 Spring release warm up programme has begun: 300 early seeders have been contacted and have started to seed the torrents. Be ready to download Mandriva Linux 2008 Spring in the very next days!
maximumpc.com: So, exactly how much do you sacrifice under the hood with a $750 subcompact? 1280x720 screen, full-size keyboard, and slick aluminum shell. We’ve spent the last few days testing the high-end, $750 model, which sports a 1.6GHz VIA CPU, 2GB of RAM, and a higher capacity battery. The operating system: you can choose between SuSe Linux or two flavors of Vista.
osweekly.com: When I first discovered that I going to receive a Beta testing review notebook from Zonbu, I was a bit skeptical. Despite being excited to try out one of their latest contraptions, I could not get my head around the challenges of a Linux notebook that was simple enough for the most casual PC user.
computerworld.com.au: When 3Ghz dual core computers running 2GB of RAM weren't being used for many heavily CPU-intensive applications in a Victorian secondary school library, the school's IT department initially joked about replacing them with older and previously abandoned hardware. Then it saw the serious side.
earthweb.com: KDE 4 is a radical overhaul of the popular desktop. It offers broad improvements like the Oxygen desktop theme, SVG graphics, and enhanced speeds thanks to the latest version of the Qt 4 toolkit. It also offers specific improvements such as the font manager and the Dolphin file manager. In short, there's a lot to like.
openswitch.org: First off, I should say that I like Dell computers. I’ve owned three Dell desktops and one Dell laptop. All have been of high quality and unlike some people, I actually think their customer service is very good. But recently I went to purchase a new desktop PC on which I am going to install ubuntu and saw some grim facts.
computerworld.com.au: Notorious open source advocate and author of The Cathedral and the Bazaar, Eric S. Raymond brings colorful acumen to any open source discussion. Here's how Raymond views the continually evolving open source landscape.
informationweek.com: Microsoft said allegations that it improperly influenced the vote on a new standard for digital document creation are unfounded and arise mostly from individuals and companies unhappy with the vote's result.
Matt Asay: Adrian Kingsley-Hughes has a great post over on Datamation entitled, "Linux...Why is it So Hard to Give It Away?". He addresses the difficulty in getting retailers to sell cheap Linux-based PCs, and decides that the problem is the support burden. Good points, but I'm more interested in the larger, underlying question:
anuragbansal.wordpress: That is an ongoing debate whether you should use Linux or Windows or Mac. I thought of collating some reasons which might make you think twice while buying another Windows PC.
tech.blorge.com: Welcome to 2008, the year during which the major media groups are all up to speed on supporting multiple operating systems and platforms, right? Not entirely.
