Maximum PC: Ubuntu isn't the only Linux distribution offering easy automatic updates. It just does the best job of making them accessible. But if you take a few moments to add third-party repositories to your existing Linux install, you can get the same access to software, codecs, and OS updates, even if they're not part of your OS's default configuration. Here's how.
Information Week: Mozilla programmers are touching most of the software components to increase performance, make the code base more modular and deal with new security threats.
Also: Safari: Do we really need another Web browser?
Information Week: At the Linux Foundation Collaboration Summit, developers discussed the evolution of the operating system--and tried to shrug off the patent threat.
Smart Money: WE'VE WITNESSED SOME mythic events in tech history recently. One eye-popper was Steve Jobs and Bill Gates sharing a stage for the first time in 20 years at The Wall Street Journal's D: All Things Digital conference last month. Perhaps even more shocking than that is Microsoft's willingness — reluctant as it may be — to share a stage with the Linux community.
Mozilla Links: Safari for Windows was no doubt the topic of the week. There is so much to look and try in a web browser that I decided to compile this comparative table highlighting pros and cons of each browser.
Click: Buried deep in his blog, Canonical head Mark Shuttleworth discusses his position on the whole Microsoft "intellectual property" claim regarding Linux and open-source software and what, as the man behind Ubuntu, he's comfortable and not comfortable doing with Microsoft.
Penguin Pete: Just when we were all getting so snug and cozy in our Web 2.0 world, along comes the new HTML spec. And it's a dilly!
betanews: Yesterday, Reuters scored an aggregation coup by pairing "Linux" and "Microsoft" with the verb "counterattack," resulting in a story that rocketed to the top of the hit list without a beat or a melody to it, and whose inaccurate derivatives were snatched up even by local television.
GCN: Should the Linux kernel be licensed under the new version of the Gnu General Public License, or should it stick with the old version? The question has sparked a heated debate on the mailing list for Linux kernel developers.
IDG via PC World: Red Hat Linux has received a new level of security certification that should make the software more appealing to some government agencies.

InforWorld Blogs: Several people have asked when I think Red Hat is going to do a IP protection deal with Microsoft and the answer is that I don't think they will. Certainly not while Microsoft continues to be light on facts and heavy on hyperbole. There is one simple reason why not to do a deal with Microsoft.
shift+backspace: The most recent release from the MEPIS crew is SimplyMEPIS 6.5, which was released on April 4th, 2007. In all of my Linux and various distribution readings, I rarely hear about MEPIS; however, it is clearly popular as the MEPIS distribution.
lxpages blog: The Linux filesystem is a complex and the first thing that most new users shifting from Windows will find confusing is navigating the Linux filesystem. The second thing is that not too many people are familiar with how the filesystem works or know how to troubleshoot if any problems arise.
Essential aids in building and testing regular expression on UNIX systems. Discover the available tools and techniques that can help you learn how to construct regular expressions for various programs and languages.
rodtempleton: After talking about it for awhile, last night I disconnected my drive with Vista installed on it and reconnected a 30GB Maxtor drive which I then installed Ubuntu Linux on from the live CD.

LoCo About Ubuntu!: In my usual "Linux hopping" travels from distro to distro, I sometimes stretch outside the Ubuntu family of distros. Recently, I have gone between PCLinuxOS to Fedora, and then back to Ubuntu. These are my notes from using both, and my comparison to Ubuntu 7.04.
groklaw: I found a video on the Novell-Microsoft Interop Ability page that clears up for me at least part of what Microsoft wants from deals like the deal with Novell. Just what is that bridge Microsoft has had with academia, I wondered? What does Microsoft have in mind for Open Source businesses that sign up for that bridge?

And: What's behind Microsoft's open-source deals?
LinuxJournal: I'm a big fan of Richard Stallman and his work – even though, the first time I interviewed him, he proceeded to criticise my questions before answering them, not a journalistic experience I'd had before. Without his vision and sheer bloody-mindedness in the face of indifference and outright hostility, we would not have the vast array of free software we enjoy today.
/home/liquidat: Today I saw that a drugstore where I bought a CD was using a KDE based system for managing there CDs and DVDs. This lead to the question how many hidden KDE installations - and Linux installations in general - are out there.
CyberNetNews: Besides for those features there is one thing that I am super excited to see implemented, and that’s a user interface (UI) for managing dual monitors. Everyday I hook my laptop up to a 24" external monitor so that I can get a dual-screen setup.
