bushweed.blogspot: People often question why i use Linux as a primary OS at home. In fact it is the only OS i use at home, although i have a Windows XP CD somewhere. Other than the obvious security features, and stability to the core, there are certain apps which i class as my killer apps.
amarok.kde.org/blog: A few weeks ago, our neighbor, a fifty-something housewife, asked us to have a look at her rather new computer making strange noises and refusing to boot. Of course, this was the ideal moment to try what we first thought to end up with a dual boot:
heise-online.co.uk: The maintainers of the stable kernel have released versions 22.214.171.124, 126.96.36.199 and 188.8.131.52, as expected. Apart from bug fixes and minor improvements, all of the versions also offer a patch for CVE-2008-3831, the security hole in the DRI code for recent Intel graphics chipsets.
mepis.org: ISO files of the fourth beta of SimplyMEPIS 8.0 are available for 32 and 64 bit processors. In this release the kernel has been updated to upstream version 184.108.40.206 and the Broadcom wl driver is now avilable for wireless N cards.
penguinpetes.com: At first, you might mistake me for a "Linux advocate". I'm running a site about Free and Open Source Software (FOSS), of which Linux is counted as an example. I certainly bring up Linux and the programs that run on it a lot.
itwire.com: Four days ago, an article purporting to analyse the raison d'etre behind the website BoycottNovell.com appeared on the linux.com site. The author, Bruce Byfield, who styles himself as a "computer journalist", however, failed to tell his reading public that the piece was just a thinly disguised and veiled attack on the person who runs the BoycottNovell site.

beranger.org: How would you call a distro that includes some of the specific bits needed to run the desktop only on the installation CD, but not as packages in the online repos? And it's more than that — read on.
linux-gamers.net: The source code for Heretic and Hexen has been re-released under the GNU General Public License, and is now available from Sourceforge. This release will allow GPL Doom source ports to freely integrate support for Heretic and Hexen.
dev-loki.blogspot: As it seems like everyone has to voice her opinion on Mono, I'll do as well. First of all, I don't like C# as a programming language. And I think that Anders Hejlsberg is wrong on many things. N
PR: The catastrophic cratering of the global economy, falling gas prices and President George W. Bush's recent executive activities have indirectly prompted Saint Paul gadfly software developers CodeWeavers, Inc., to provide free software for every American on Oct. 28, company officials reluctantly announced today.

techradar.com: For better or worse, Linux has always had a reputation as being the geeks' OS. With netbooks, this isn't the case. Neither the Windows nor Linux systems on the market are really being sold as computers as such, but a handy device that people buy for specific functions.

Held during the Linux Foundation's recent Linux Kernel Summit, the interview reveals the Linux founder speaking out on issues ranging from kernel/userland interactions to why Linux has so many interfaces.

ostatic.com: A few days ago, Kristin covered Envizions Computer Entertainment's announcement that it will deliver its EVO Linux-based gaming console on November 18th. She predicted that the announcment would probably stoke the long-standing fire surrounding whether Linux can ever be a viable gaming platform, and indeed it did.
opensuse.org: So the polls are closed now and all votes have been accounted for and confirmed valid, and we are now proud to announce the election results!
blogs.zdnet: John Galt is the lead character in Ayn Rand’s Atlas Shrugged. Galt represents Rand’s ideal of objectivism, of free market absolutism and rule by those few who dominate the market. Linus is the anti-Galt.
