sherman-on-security.blogspot: One of the pleasures of Linux is that you can try out different distributions to see which one works best for you. Some worthwhile distributions, however, don't get as much attention as they deserve. So, here's my list of five great distributions that you might want to try.
oneclicklinux.com: In my last blog post an anonymous reader asked a friendly question in the comments area, "What took you so long? PCLinuxOS isn't exactly a well kept secret..."
softpedia.com: Though only four months passed since the previous release, Ultimate Edition 2.2 was a highly anticipated upgrade by fans all over the world, especially for the fact that it would almost certainly use the Ubuntu 9.04 (Jaunty Jackalope) base.
This tutorial shows how to combine four single storage servers (running Debian Lenny) to one large storage server (distributed storage) with GlusterFS. The client system (Debian Lenny as well) will be able to access the storage as if it was a local filesystem.
linuxfud.wordpress: While going through some old notes, I was reminded that there once existed a website dedicated to explaining the differences between Unix and Windows NT.
linuxloop.com: Tony Mobily published an article in Free Software Magazine discussing software installation, specifically end-user software installation, on Linux, which he calls broken. I agree that the system is flawed, but it is not broken.
toolbox.com/blogs: When it comes down to the nitty gritties there are many reasons why you should use Linux and very few reasons why not. You can postulate all you like. You can um this and er that but when you look at actual fact and not FUD then Linux does look equal.
blog.hydrasystemsllc: Face it, no matter how user friendly, stable and well performing the operating system becomes, the majority of basic PC users will never get a chance to touch it because they will never install it.
netguido.com: Linux: It’s fast, it’s free, but is it time to load into your PC? Maybe not quite yet. Recent revisions of the software make it easier to overcome the biggest hurdle for the non-techie users — installation — but it is still an operation that will take lots of time and may just be beyond the skills of the average user.

itwire.com: The next release of the popular Ubuntu GNU/Linux distribution may include a third Mono-dependent application by default, a spokesman for Canonical, the parent company for Ubuntu, told iTWire today.
aseigo.blogspot: The release team has just done something a bit different from past release cycles to test out some modifications to our usual work flow: with the release of the first release candidate, 4.3 has been immediately branched off of the mainline trunk, and trunk is now 4.4.
adventuresincomputing.wordpress: Apple will release its OS X 10.6 “Snow Loepard” in September and not long after, on October 22nd, Microsoft’s Windows 7 will be released. A week later Ubuntu 9.10 “Karmic Koala” is scheduled to be unleashed.

linuxgames.com: One of Linux gaming’s oldest and most stalwart commercial supporters, id Software, was just purchased by ZeniMax Media, who already own Bethesda Softworks. I guess it’s not too surprising to see consolidation in this market, but it is a little sad to see id lose a bit of its independence.

jjtcomputing.co.uk: Ultimate Edition is an ‘improved’ version of Ubuntu. Unlike Linux Mint, which contains modifications to the source code, Ultimate Edition is simply a lot more packages added to Ubuntu and then made into an ISO using reconstructor.
lunduke.com: After yesterday’s post on how I think Fedora is screwing up royally, I thought I’d follow that up with taking a look at the experiences of someone else.
