jaysonrowe.wordpress: I have been a consumer of Open Source software for a very long time. Here lately, I’ve been having a love/hate relationship with (not only) Ubuntu, but with Linux in general.
headshotgamer.com: OpenSUSE (in various forms) has been around for quite some time and has been quite popular with developers and business users. It currently holds Distrowatch's number 2 spot on the page hit ranking and has a thriving community of users. OpenSUSE 11.1 is packing some good stuff.
technologytales.com: The latest buzz surrounding Windows 7 has caused one observer to suggest that it’s about to blast Linux from the desktop. My experiences might be positive but there are still things that I like about Linux that make me reluctant to consider switching back. Here are a few in no particular order:

freesoftwaremagazine.com: All manner of campaigns have been tried to persuade Windows users to make the switch to GNU/Linux and every year is heralded as the year of GNU/Linux on the desktop. Whether these things come to pass or not only time will tell, but the latest electronic assault on the integrity of computers which emanates from the British Government might just tilt the balance in favour of free and open software.
toolbox.com/blogs: We all know that netbooks have become hugely popular. So popular in fact that microsoft has been stirred to try and stick its fingers into the pie. So far this has been as successful as the ugly step sister trying to fit into Cinderella's glass slipper.
pctechbytes.net/forums: You are probably reading this with questions about Linux, whether you are a frustrated with Microsoft Operating Systems, just curious about the advantages and disadvantages of Linux, or don't even know how to use a computer!
blogs.zdnet.com: There is an assumption throughout the financial press that since we’re down, cash is king. The extent to which this applies to open source, however, is something which deserves to be questioned.
sutor.com: It occurred to be this morning when I was stuck in traffic that although a lot has been written about open source development for communities, much less is out there for the lone developer. This is the person who labors along by him- or herself, writing code and letting the world use it. Why might they do this?
howsoftwareisbuilt.com: In this interview we talk with Paul. In specific, we talk about: Getting started with the GNOME project, Devices targeted by GNOME Mobile, and the Differences between GNOME and GNOME Mobile.
xfce.org: I am pleased to announce the release of Xfce 4.6 BETA-3. Just like with the previous BETA, this release comes with a lot of bugfixes but is not expected to be 100% stable.
distrowatch.com: Steve Langasek has announced the availability of the third alpha release of Ubuntu 9.04 "Jaunty Jackalope."
royal.pingdom.com: Sometimes you just need to take a short break, relax and have fun. A great way to do so is to check out some funny web comics, and we here at Pingdom are big fans of comics that dive into the slightly more geeky aspects of life.
the-gay-bar.com: In Linux circles RPM has a really bad reputation, the whole idea of "RPM-hell" (like Windows' DLL-hell) has spread through the years. It's a reputation that was really deserved in the past when getting exactly the right RPM for your distro was a huge pain.
ajc.com: Many PC buyers assume there is one way to get onto the Internet — Internet Explorer. It’s already on the desktop, it seems to work, so why mess with a good thing? But these days there are many choices when it comes to browsers.
blog.eracc.com: Have you ever called or e-mailed Microsoft or some other software manufacturer’s technical support about a problem as a user? What was your result? Did the technical support personnel begin with the assumption that you were the problem, not their software?
linuxjournal.com: It’s no secret that I’m a Linux fan. I love it. I use it. I tell of its goodness far and wide. It’s also true, however, that I administer and use a variety of operating systems throughout any given day. This week, I tried out Windows 7 Beta.
