pcpro.co.uk/blogs: Our esteemed editor, Tim Danton, recently ran a thought piece wondering whether Linux would ever hit the mainstream, his ten cents worth clattering down on the side that says “probably not.” It’s an intruiging point of view, but one predicated on a fallacy.
tuxradar.com: Turning to time management software to organise your life is fine, just as long as it doesn't become another obstacle to actually Getting Things Done. We looked for single-user applications that can work offline to track actions and group them by project, category or context.
synergymx.com: With each new release of Ubuntu the Open Source Linux Distribution based on Debian gets better and better. In this latest beta version of the upcoming 9.04 release dubbed “Jaunty Jackalope” they continue to build on the polish of previous releases.
oooninja.com: Say April Fools' with five OpenOffice.org pranks. Open source has a sense of humor too!
crn.com: Running Linux off of a flash drive is a great way to test and evaluate a Linux desktop without making any changes to a Windows system. Test Center reviewers took a look at four Linux desktops all running off of a USB flash drive.
intranetjournal.com: Like any worthwhile operating system, popular Linux distributions define themselves not just by the default desktop manager in use, but also by the software elected to be included out of the box.
brajeshwar.com: A penny saved is a penny earned! Why not consider an open source alternative against purchasing several licensed copies of your favorite operating system or getting a pirated copy of the same.

Dolphin was intended to replace Konqueror as the default file manager in KDE 4. The scope of Dolphin was to only provide a compact and easy-to-use file manager, without all the features and uses Konqueror has. And (I think) it succeeded.
phoronix.com: Last week Intel had pushed out a second alpha release of Moblin V2 and now it boots even faster, which means they are down to the point of being able to boot in just a few seconds.
linux-magazine.com: It all started with a request for help from Jesper Krogh in one of the first responses to Torvalds's announcement March 24 of Kernel 2.6.29 on the gmane.linux.kernel mailing list.
ibm.com/developerworks: At the end of 2008, the 2.6.28 kernel surfaced. Subsequently, the merge window for the next release—2.6.29—opened. As the Linux kernel uses a distributed development process, it's not always clear what's coming (or will be integrated) into a given kernel release, but the last two have been interesting.
