tech.blorge: This is a very good thing, a very bad thing or a complete and total blunder by someone. The Ubuntu desktop is listed for free download on the Windows marketplace complete with description and user reviews.
Informit: The Free Software community is well known for its diversity. This is most obvious at the application level, but even exists in the context of operating systems. David Chisnall takes a break from UNIX-derivatives and explores some of the more esoteric options.
Infoworld blogs: Is money a good measure of OSS success? In our free market society, I believe it is. This does not minimize the importance of other measures of success.
decane.net: SuperMaze is a simple to learn and play humorous non-violent hunt-and-shoot game using Smileys as the main actors in a maze style environment. Now it's a free download.
ZDNet: The Linux kernel and the distributions that package it typically provide very conservative defaults to certain network settings that affect networking parameters. These settings can be tuned via the /proc filesystem or using the sysctl program.
CyberOrg: Jiri Suchomel has created YaST module that makes creating KIWI images breeze, here are the steps to create your own live distro.
linux.com: Organizations of all sizes need to mitigate the risk of insider threats. Misconduct by authorized users represents a grave threat to an organization. You can secure your network perimeter with intrusion detection systems, firewalls, and virus scanners, but don't neglect to monitor authorized users. The Linux Audit daemon can help you detect violations of your security policies.
Linux on the desktop: Today on Linux on the desktop, episode 21, we look at Sabayon Linux 3.3 as a Live DVD distribution. News headlines includes San Diego Unified School District plans to rolls out laptops with Linux. Mandriva Corporate Desktop 4.0 is released. Pressure mounts on Dell over Linux PCs.
Matt Asay: In this tenth installment of the Open Source CEO Series, I shifted gears again to talk with someone that has chosen not to carry the CEO title, despite ample opportunity to claim it. Dries Buytaert, the founder of Drupal, is Linus-like in his ability to build an amazing community without undue concern for commercializing his success.
ZDNet: Much to my children’s chagrin, my basement Edubuntu setup is going away, only to be replaced by an alpha version of OpenSUSE 10.3. Oh yeah, they were thrilled.
This document describes how to install a Fedora 7 mail server based on Qmail Using Qmail Toaster. Qmail is an Internet Mail Transfer Agent (MTA) for UNIX-like operating systems. It is a drop-in replacement for Sendmail.
Matt Asay: Wow. Sometimes, you read things like this and you wonder if Microsoft employees inhabit the same universe. Apparently, they haven't been following the rampant, constant security holes discovered and exploited in Windows over the past decade.
iTWire: Linux users can, at times, be the worst kind of ingrates, whining and complaining about what they perceive as missing features in a free operating system. My advice to all such whingers: spend 10 days using the latest version of Windows and you'll realise that you are living in a world of relative bliss.
FOSSwire: How long did you use to spend sitting in front of a PC or NES playing the classic Lemmings? Don’t lie. That’s right, countless hours. Well, prepare to do it all over again in the open-source game Pingus.
huffingtonpost.com: Quick -- name an open source product that's innovative. If you said "Linux," you failed the test. Linux -- the darling of counter-culture programmers, for its "free software" advocacy and for providing an alternative to Microsoft Windows -- is not an innovation. It's essentially a copy of another operating system, called Unix, that has been around since the 1970s.
linux.com: If you visited the Plasma project's outdated Web site in past weeks, you might have gotten the impression that the team behind the project to revitalize the KDE desktop hasn't been up to much these past months. Delve into KDE's SVN repository, mailing lists, or the mind of lead developer Aaron Seigo, however, and you'll find a more exciting story.

Your very own Amarok team announces the immediate availability of the latest 1.4 series release, 1.4.6. So, what's new?
ubuntu-tutorials.com: If nothing else it is proof that the Linux command line is a very powerful tool.. if you take the time to learn it.
p2pnet.net: Chipzilla is doing everything it can to undercut MIT's One Laptop Per Child project not, sadly, in the name of helping disadvantaged kids in Africa and elsewhere, but instead to pander to the God of the Bottom Line. But it's not the only game in town and another cheap system is quietly trundling along in the background.
